Former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is a vehicle for the left’s cultural revolution, even if he doesn’t know it. Someone might remind him that he’s even running.
On Wednesday, prominent communist, anti-Semite and former Black Panther Angela Davis said Biden could be “effectively pressured,” into promoting the agenda of the radical left in pursuit of a complete societal transformation overthrowing existing norms into a new world order.
“I don’t see this election as being about choosing a candidate who will be able to lead us in the right direction,” Davis said on “Russia Today.” “It will be about choosing a candidate who can be most effectively pressured into allowing more space for the evolving anti-racist movement.”
That anti-racism movement meanwhile, has morphed into a profoundly religious one, featuring woke white people bowing down in a form of moral submission to atone for ancestral sins.
Protesters in Bethesda attend a woke sermon to cry about their white guilt. Note that not a single one of them is social distancing. Two weeks ago, the media would've called them terrorists. https://t.co/rOJCsmPs9v

The new anti-racism movement, adopted explicitly from the Marxist playbook, features the radical rewrite of history, the purging of cultural relics, the takeover of legacy institutions in media and academia and the criminalization of dissent with the unforgiving exile of any of those opposed to the collectivist movement in the name of “social justice,” no matter its own contradictions. These are the same tactics being employed by the Chinese Communist Party in the takeover of Hong Kong.
Columbia University Professor John McWhorter foresaw the coming moment in 2018 when he aptly described “anti-racism” as a religion:
Third-wave anti-racism is a profoundly religious movement in everything but terminology. The idea that whites are permanently stained by their white privilege, gaining moral absolution only by eternally attesting to it, is the third wave’s version of original sin. The idea of a someday when America will “come to terms with race” is as vaguely specified a guidepost as Judgment Day. Explorations as to whether an opinion is “problematic” are equivalent to explorations of that which may be blasphemous. The social mauling of the person with “problematic” thoughts parallels the excommunication of the heretic.
It’s no surprise then, that the contemporary anti-racism movement has now set its sights on the grand prize in the nation’s cultural wars attempting to weaponize the Oval Office in their assault on the existing world order. Biden has already showcased a willingness to conform to the woke revolution and even champion the cause to the detriment of the very people it purports to support.
Over the last two weeks, Biden unveiled a new economic agenda revealing the most radical progressive platform of any modern Democratic candidate in recent history, which, in the end makes sense given the party’s lurch to the left over the course of a crowded primary where moderates were sidelined to the benefit of openly socialist frontrunners throughout the contest.
Under the “Unity Task Forces,” a 110-page document hashed out between Biden’s team and former presidential rival Sen. Bernie Sanders’ of Vermont, the Democratic Party appears to be nominating Sanders after all in the form of Biden masquerading as a moderate. The Democratic nominee now endorses nearly tripling Hillary Clinton’s 2016 proposal for tax hikes missing no opportunity to “rewrite the economy” of a nation in crisis from COVID-19.
Under Biden’s new plan, the former vice president is offering free college, granting free citizenship to illegal immigrants, threatening border security officers for enforcing the law, and pledging $2 trillion on a climate plan to achieve “environmental justice.”
We're going to beat Donald Trump. And when we do, we won't just rebuild this nation — we'll transform it.

Just days after Biden vowed to “transform” the country, Sanders lauded the party’s nominee as the best chance to get as close to a repeat of an FDR presidency in decades.
“The compromise they came up with, if implemented, will make Biden the most progressive president since FDR,” Sanders said during an appearance on MSNBC.
While perhaps in the absence of much inflammatory rhetoric in support of the movement, the candidate’s platform portrays a Trojan horse for moderate voters who might buy into the Democratic Party’s ploy selling their candidate as a centrist. Without the spotlight that comes with conventional campaigning, Democrats are able to craft a far-left agenda under the radar as the candidates mount 21st-century digital front-porch campaigns courting voters from their respective homes.
Meanwhile, assuming all minorities have already turned on Trump, nothing on Biden’s platform will actually help the people he’s trying to win over in November. Taxing foreign profits and hiking corporate tax rates promise to be devastating jobs killers. Of course, the money raised from such efforts, if not wasted on government bureaucracy, will likely be funneled to causes that ensure “social justice” such as slavery reparations, even if the Biden hasn’t yet fully endorsed them yet.
After all, Biden can be “effectively pressured.”
