I saw the thread title before I saw your reply in the other thread, knew exactly what this was, and just started laughing and laughing.

If you have the time and the boredom, you might want to look at the zoom chat with Biden and civil rights leaders that got leaked (article via The Intercept).



The tl;dr is basically
he's not going to do anything meaningful via executive actions, at least not to address civil rights etc., and that he doesn't want any more talk about police reform and blames "Defund the Police" for what he acknowledges as a shitty election performance and not say, his own shitty campaign and lack of platform.

AP:

Democracy, Biden said, has been “pushed, tested, threatened.” But he said it proved to be “resilient, true, and strong.”

“The flame of democracy was lit in this nation a long time ago,” Biden said. “And we now know that nothing, not even a pandemic or an abuse of power, can extinguish that flame.”


This is, of course, exactly the wrong fucking lesson to take from Trump's coup attempt.

Like everything else Trump has done in office, we should be asking "What do we do to make sure that when someone more competent tries this, it doesn't succeed?" Biden, as ever, is not the leader we need for the crises we're facing.

If you keep talking like that, you'll be at fault when Trump gets reelected!
Wait, sorry, I mean:
If you keep talking like that, it'll be your fault that the Georgia special elections fail!

Or the ones we will face. Or that were faced 50 years ago. Or...


The agreement is that Biden is entirely a stalling tactic right? I thought like 6 months ago we agreed he is there like a bag of sand to remove the golden idol and would not start to pretend he would actually get anything done.

trump is often connected to gold and was also held above a god for a rabid fanbase of people that like to believe in those types of things

biden is some loose skin they filled with sand

I think it works

Biden quote from earlier today:

Let’s get something straight, you shouldn’t be disappointed. What I’ve done so far is more than anyone else has done this far. Okay? Number one. Number two, I mean what I say when I say it, I mean what I say when I say it. I’m the only person who has ever run on three platforms that I was told could not possibly win the election. One was restoring the soul of this country, because of what I saw happen at Charlottesville. That was it, no one else was talking about it, the words of presidents matter, nobody else, no progressive, was talking about it, I did.


If you forget the contextual clues for a moment that give away the fact that it's a Biden quote, who else could you imagine saying this?

I dunno about you guys, but even knowing who and what Crab Juice is, it's frighting that this sounds so fuckin' uncannily like 'Individual 1'.

Nina Turner Pledges “No Honeymoon” for Biden as She Launches Bid for Congress

Much as the party leadership would like for the progressives to shut up, I don't think they're going to.

Good news everyone!




https://www.dailyposter.com/p/bidens-au ... ry-cut-the

With Republican and Democratic leaders in the House and Senate far apart on how much they were willing to accept in new pandemic spending, Mr. Biden on Dec. 2 threw his support behind the $900 billion plan being pushed by the centrist group. The total was less than half of the $2 trillion that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York, had been insisting on.

Mr. Biden’s move was not without risks. If it had failed to affect the discussions, the president-elect risked looking powerless to move Congress before he had taken the oath of office. But members of both parties said his intervention was constructive and gave Democrats confidence to pull back on their demands.


oh no

And there's still about a 50/50 shot Trump vetoes it anyway.

...I suppose some context and possibly a little more information from someone who isn't this fucking guy is too much to ask?
