For a while, Joe Biden was seen as a mostly moderate Democrat candidate for President. Much of America probably didn’t label him as “far-left.”
For example, when multiple politicians had declared their interest in the presidency, many viewed Biden as one of the least radical leftists on the slate.
Others, like socialist Bernie Sanders, were definitely farther left.
However, some believe we’re seeing a shift in Biden’s campaign recently. It appears as if he’s more open to far-left ideas and constructs than we might’ve initially thought.
The question is, will Biden welcome more revolutionary liberal ideas at this point?
Well, the Revolutionary Community Party certainly hopes he will.
Via The Daily Wire:
The founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA announced on Monday that they were backing presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden for president.
Bob Avakian made the announcement in an email to supporters, according to the Washington Times.
In that letter, Avakian made it clear that they don’t believe Biden is “better” than current President Donald Trump. But the bottom line is … Biden isn’t Trump, and that’s what matters to them.
Avakian added that only one “good” can arise from the November election — and that’s a “decisive defeat” for the incumbent.
However, the Trump campaign was quick to respond, and they didn’t pull any punches, either:
Avakian’s endorsement further demonstrates that Joe Biden is an empty vessel for the radical left.
Indeed, Biden is seriously considering communist Rep. Karen Bass to be his running mate.
They also cited Avakian’s past, as he “once faced serious charges of rioting and assault” when protesting for the Chinese communist Mao Zedong.
And this isn’t the first time an anti-capitalist has come out in favor of Biden.
A few months ago, Marxist activist Angela Davis said Biden would be “easier to pressure into caving to the demands of the radical left” (per The Daily Wire).
Biden himself hasn’t responded to the Communist Party’s support, though it may come up during debate time.
At that point, will voters think the Democrat pick for President is far more left-leaning than he ever was before…?
- The Revolutionary Communist Party USA supports Joe Biden for the presidency.
- Though they say he isn’t “better” than Donald Trump, they simply want Trump out.
- This isn’t the first time a far-left group or individual has expressed a desire to see Biden in the White House.
