Opinion| How many of you are really shocked by the headline? I read the headline four times trying to understand what is newsworthy about that.
Not that I expect Joe Biden to remain in office long if he is elected. Democrats are pushing for a radical progressive as his running mate.
Once he is in office, Democrats will have an epiphany that Joe is not mentally equipped to be president and they will boot him and install the radical, who will then select someone who is also a radical for the vice president job.
They won’t pass up a golden opportunity like this.
Avakian, the founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, told his followers in a statement that they should vote for Joe Biden in November.
He wants someone in the White House that shares his views.
Avakian said that if Trump and Pence are still in power in November, all members should vote for Biden.
He says it is not a protest vote, he just wants someone in the White House that sympathizes with his ideology. But then he goes on to say that Biden really isn’t better than Trump, it’s just that he is not Trump. Trump has been very vocal in his opposition to socialism and communism.
Avakian did not have kind words for the Democrats either calling them “representatives and instruments of this exploitative, oppressive, and literally murderous system of capitalism-imperialism.” He said the important thing is to remove Trump who will never cave to communism.
“The question is not whether Biden and the Democrats represent something ‘good,’” Avakian continued. “Biden is not ‘better’ than Trump, in any meaningful way — except that he is not Trump and is not part of the move to consolidate and enforce fascist rule, with everything that means.”
“To approach this election from the standpoint of which candidate is ‘better’ means failing to understand the truly profound stakes and potential consequences of what is involved,” he added. “The fact is that there can be one — and only one — ‘good’ that can come out of this election: delivering a decisive defeat to Trump and the whole fascist regime.”
