Civil Rights Attorney Torches Democrats: They've Been ‘Hijacked By the Extremists'
Leo Terrell blasts Democratic Party and Joe Biden during interview
Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell blasted the Democratic Party, saying they have been “hijacked by the extremists."
Terrell also took aim at the Democrats' presidential nominee, Joe Biden, arguing he “talks one game and does another.”
Appearing with conservative radio host Larry Elder on “Hannity,” Terrell responded to the former vice president's recent comments that 32.82M and 49.23 million Americans are "not very good."
“I’m going to be consistent on this because as the civil rights attorney, Joe Biden talks one game and does another,” Terrell said.
“He claims he wants to unite the country, well he just threw out 15%, they’re not good people.
"Well, Joe Biden, I’m part of that 15% and proud of it.”
“Then he further divides the country by claiming that if you don’t vote Democrat, you ain’t black,” he continued.
“He further divides the country by then not supporting the police department. I find it insulting.”
Biden’s claim to be a peacemaker came just 24 hours after he said he “won’t traffic in fear and division” in the wake of protests over the death of George Floyd.
“I won’t fan the flames of hate,” Biden claimed.
Terrell said the fact that Biden was chosen by former President Barack Obama for Vice President was his “only calling card" and “not enough to vote for him.”
“He threw blacks in jail with his crime bill,” Terrell continues.
“It was President Trump with his first step action that got us out of jail, and then his best friend [Los Angeles Mayor] Eric Garcetti calls cops killers.”
Terrell added, "the Democratic Party has been hijacked."
"It’s been hijacked by the extremists, and that is why I’m on your show, Sean Hannity. It’s been hijacked.”
“Somebody hijacked Leo, Sean, and I love it,” Elder joked.
Last month, Terrell said he was "disappointed" that there was "no Democratic lawmaker in the last 72 hours who have focused on the criminal activities of these individuals who are not protesting."
"These are criminals and they are breaking the law using the guise of caring about George Floyd."
