Joe Biden. This is what a “moderate” Democrat looks like? Really? Well, considering the craziness of the Democratic primaries with a lineup that included Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, and Cory Booker, Biden may seem moderate by comparison. And that, of course, is the whole point of the media narrative in attempting to sell Joe Biden as a “centrist,” “Moderate,” “conservative” Democrat to Middle American voters. However, aside from Biden’s long public record of supporting far-left positions on political, social, economic, and moral issues, his list of current endorsers speaks volumes about the agenda we could expect from a Biden presidency. Consider this very abbreviated list of endorsers:
Sometimes a “radical” is someone right 50 years too soon (or too late) — and often a “moderate” is a wrong radical who wants to be thought right by people voting today. The latter is the case with this year’s Democrat candidates, points out commentator Jack Hellner, as he warns of the “phony press trope about all those Democratic ‘moderates.’”
For former Vice President Joe Biden it was over even before it got started. At the beginning of the contest at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire, Friday night, Biden was asked by moderator George Stephanopoulos of ABC News what Iowa voters “missed” by giving him, the former front runner, a fourth place finish behind Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg. Biden responded, “They didn’t miss anything.... I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here.”
“The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter,” goes the saying. Achieving such cynicism only took 2 ½ minutes at an Iowa caucus site, however, when a woman who’d voted for Pete Buttigieg was shocked to learn he was in a homosexual relationship and consequently wanted to rescind her vote. A Buttigieg operative then tried to reverse her thinking, using arguments that inspire lines about five-minute conversations.
Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg recently confirmed what everyone in his party has always understood: Folks who harbor a desire to protect the pre-born from the horrors of abortion are not welcome at the leftist-socialist party table. At a recent “town hall” meeting for Democrat candidates hosted by Fox News, one Democrat attendee who also identifies as a pro-life activist challenged Buttigieg on the Democrat Party’s longtime pro-abortion platform, suggesting that the party make room for individuals who value life.
Believing your nation is illegitimate and perhaps should cease to exist shouldn’t be a résumé enhancer for a prospective leader. But presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg may disagree, as he recently expressed approval at the notion that the United States occupies stolen land — and that illegal aliens are merely exacting justice by “reclaiming” it. Moreover, Buttigieg actually asserted that illegals are “subsidizing everybody else.”
