Revolutionary Communist Party Endorses JOE BIDEN, Shocks Nobody

( By now, the whole world is pretty aware of how far left presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has shifted. The once-moderate Democratic vice president as adopted a slew of far-left policies in an attempt to win over radical supporters of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and even taken on board the extremist Green New Deal agenda put forward by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.

It should come as no surprise, therefore, for anybody to learn that the leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA has endorsed Joe Biden for president. Bob Avakian endorsed the Democratic candidate on Monday, sending an email to his party’s supporters who are aware that the party is unlikely to make any electoral victories of its own any time soon.

The Washington Times reports how Avakian said that Biden isn’t “better” than Trump “in any meaningful way,” but that the very fact “he is not Trump and is not part of the move to consolidate and enforce fascist rule” is good enough for him to support the ageing candidate.

“To approach this election from the standpoint of which candidate it ‘better’ means failing to understand the truly profound stakes and potential consequences of what is involved,” Avakian continued. “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.”

It’s funny how a literal communist can decry fascism, right? In what “meaningful” way are they any different?

Given how much the Democrats love to attack the president whenever he is endorsed or supported by someone he doesn’t appreciate, the Trump campaign was quick to give the Democrats a taste of their own medicine. The campaign issued an official statement attacking Biden’s deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield for welcoming “everybody who believes that Joe Biden should be president” into their campaign.

“That now includes Bob Avakian, the radical founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party who just endorsed Joe Biden and instructed fellow communists to support Biden in the election,” the statement said. “Avakian once faced serious charges of rioting and assault for protesting in favor of Chinese communist Mao Zedong’s bloody and brutal regime.”

The statement added that Avakian’s endorsement “further demonstrates that Joe Biden is an empty vessel for the radical left.”

Given that Biden is largely incapable of finishing his sentences without the aid of notes or teleprompters, some people might just describe him as an empty vessel generally.
