All throughout last year, we saw a civil war brewing within the Democratic Party. Moderates, who were trying to hold onto their seats, fought against progressives. The far left continues to push out moderates, even as their radical agenda turns away more and more voters.
Biden has been caught in the middle. The former moderate increasingly bows to the far left, violating his promises to “unite” the country. But apparently, Biden hasn’t gone left enough, despite the damage he’s done to the economy in the name of socialism.
Because progressives are already planning on finding someone to replace him in 2024.
“Will there be a progressive challenger? Yes,” said Jeff Weaver, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ former presidential campaign manager…
“He’s deeply unpopular. He’s old as sh*t. He’s largely been ineffective, unless we’re counting judges or whatever the hell inside-baseball scorecard we’re using. And I think he’ll probably get demolished in the midterms,” said Corbin Trent, co-founder of the progressive No Excuses PAC and former communications director for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
Leftists are taking out their knives against Joe Biden. Talk is growing louder that the far-left wing of the Democratic Party is going to find a candidate to run against him. Former allies for notable socialists like Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are saying progressives have lost interest in sleepy old Joe.
This shouldn’t be a surprise. Biden betrayed his own moderate values to placate progressives in 2020. He brought on Bernie Sanders staffers as soon as he was nominated, letting them craft his economic plan. All throughout last year, Biden prioritized the far left’s plans, after an apparent call in December 2020, where they threatened to destroy him.
But Biden’s progressive agenda hasn’t worked for America. His decisions have triggered numerous economic crises, not to mention a border crisis. And his progressive handlers don’t seem to know how to craft foreign or domestic policy either, given Afghanistan and Biden’s infamous mandates.
Now, the progressive left is looking to abandon Biden, after pushing him around for two years. Their plans failed with Biden, so they apparently think finding a younger figure is the way to go. But if they can’t get their agenda to work with a yes-man like Biden, what hope do they have with someone else?
