Robert Wasinger, If you are tired of seeing radical leftists riot in the streets, just wait until they run our federal government with the help of Joe Biden.
The Democrat Party and the liberal media want us to believe that Biden would tame the violent progressives who have been ransacking and pillaging our cities if he gets elected president this November. This appealing promise, however, is nothing but a deadly trap designed to deceive the American people into voting against our own best interests.
Despite his desperate, superficial pivot to the center in recent weeks, Biden always has been and always will be a key ally of the radical left. In fact, the Democrat nominee is the radicals’ only hope of taking control of the presidency in this election and ensuring that their unhinged slogans and demands are translated into public policy.
Just as he was preparing to formalize his status as the nominee, Biden formally teamed up with self-described democratic-socialist Senator Bernie Sanders to draft a “unity” policy manifesto ahead of the Democratic National Convention (DNC). Predictably, the document was designed to steer the Party further to the left than it has ever been before — and it succeeded.
The official 2020 Democrat Party platform, which was adopted at the DNC, embraced large sections of the “unity” proposal, including its call to provide a pathway to citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants, implement the most aggressive environmental regulations in U.S. history, undermine local police departments, and much more.
To make matters worse, Biden’s running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, is a close ally of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — the same politician who first proposed a $93 trillion Green New Deal and recently insisted that the statement “defund the police” ought to be taken literally.
For all these reasons, progressive ideologues such as Sanders and former President Obama have both acknowledged Biden as the most progressive presidential nominee their party has put forth in many decades, if not the most far-left candidate in American history.
“Joe already has what is the most progressive platform of any major party nominee in history,” Obama said earlier this year, before Biden had cribbed entire sections of Sanders’s platform verbatim. These days, he probably wouldn’t even need to use “major party” as a qualifier.
Luckily, the American people don’t have to elect a leader who would surround himself with uncompromising ideologues, the way Biden already has. From the first days of violent riots in Democrat-run cities, President Trump has forcefully condemned the movement that continues to target our law enforcement.
“The Left has launched a vicious and violent assault on law enforcement, the universal symbol of the rule of law in America,” President Trump said during a recent White House Conference on American History.
“These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment, media, and even large corporations,” he continued. “Whether it is the mob on the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: to silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.”
As the President continues to stress on the campaign trail, the American people are not as naive as the Democrats seem to think we are — voters understand that a Biden presidency would only empower the left’s assault on the very foundations of our Republic.
Biden has shown his true colors by making alliances with the radical left and embracing the most extreme policy agenda in U.S. history. If he manages to win the White House, the unrest our country has been experiencing over the past few months will only be the beginning.
