All any of us heard in the weeks leading up to the 2020 election was, “we need to dump Trump first, then we can push Biden left!” This empty assurance was how a disturbing number of Fauxgressives were outed. They voted for a man who was a complete POS, but arguably less a POS than that other POS.

We’ll push Biden left!” was repeated like a mantra by establishment Democrats posing as Progressives, a phenomenon that became endemic after Sniffy McGropey beat the Orange Anal Wart. (But that’s a whole other article.)

Naturally, those of us possessing critical thinking skills and a conscience knew this was complete horseshit. If you can’t push a candidate left when they’re trying to garner votes, why on earth would they acquiesce after they’ve won? Especially a Blue MAGA like Biden, who is the architect of so many policies that have led to increased systemic oppression.

You can’t even push this dude from the far-right to a little-less-far right. But you guys didn’t know and/or didn’t care. So what if Biden’s record and policies prove he’s at least as right-wing as Trump? Biden has that unmistakable veneer of top-notch liberal privilege on steroids that makes Fauxgressives all tingly.

And, after all, isn’t protecting delicate neolib sensibilities from reality the most important thing?

Facts. Not opinions.

Yeah, he’ll just start leaning left now after over forty years of shitlibery. Why not.

The naivete bordering on delusion is strong with this bunch. Biden says millennials need to “give him a break.” At the same time, an entire generation wonders why they are denied advantages the Boomers have always taken for granted as their birthright.

The shitlibs don’t even blink.

He assures us that “poor kids are just as smart as white kids” and delivered this gem of a quote in 1977:

Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle with tensions…
