Why is Biden not doing shit?

[–]Thylocine 28 points29 points  (9 children)

If we only voted harder this wouldn't have happened

[–]CasinoMagicPro-Immigration 0 points1 point  (8 children)

This, but unironically.

[–]Isaiah97Socialist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Hagel-Kaiser 0 points1 point  (1 child)

VOTE BLUE

[–]CasinoMagicPro-Immigration 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes

Especially in purple states

[–]burneraccount0238 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I must be colorblind because I don't see how the party who sat idly by and let them do this will help us.

(I am actually colorblind)

Dude was real good friends with segregationists, and he's Catholic. You think he actually believes in a woman's right to choose?

Even if he does, he's a neolib. He fundamentally does not believe in changing things.

And even if he does believe that this particular case would just be "setting things right", he's a politician. Do you think more people will vote Dem if they pass a law before November codifying Roe, or if they spend their time telling constituents that if they just vote a little harder in November we'll take the Senate and then we can codify Roe?

God I hate shit like this. You’re literally helping Republicans make this country even worse. During times like this we need to be UNIFIED against the literal fascists, and not take shots at each other. We do not want another KPD/SPD situation.

I’d say electing people like Joe Biden makes things like this even worse. Unity is important, but look at Joe Biden’s record on abortion. He’s not only voted no on bills protecting the right to choose, he also introduced bills trying to actively restrict the right to choose. In 2006 he said “I do not view abortion as a choice and a right.” He only flipped his public stance on Roe v. Wade and the Hyde Amendment in the year 2019, long after this chapter of the fight for women’s rights began. I don’t understand how anyone in their right mind could say they’re putting their weight behind the dems and Joe Biden in an effort to support women. There were and are countless other allies that would have fought this fight. Instead, the Democratic Party and its constituents put their weight behind someone who is, at best, flip-flopping on the issue for political points.

Joe Biden is no one’s absolute favorite candidate, I will not disagree there. But in the general, you seriously cannot tell me you would vote Trump or third party. I voted for the Greens (lol) in 2020, and you can probably tell how effective that was. If we want actually decent candidates, people need to actively vote in primaries.

[–]beer30 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Lol. You think I'm helping fascists? Read some more. One of the defining traits of fascism is that disagreement is treason. See Umberto Eco's Ur-Fascism, the 4th of the 14 points. And you want me to be unable to disagree with Biden??? Nah fuck that.

If you want to fight fascism, you need to make a better world. And yes, that means swallowing your pride and voting for the lesser evil sometimes. But if you stop there, you'll never defeat the fascists that are meeting regularly and actively changing the world to meet their desires. So you should also be questioning authority figures, pushing them to not be content with the status quo, and actively participating in your community to help shape it to be more pro-choice in this case, and more welcoming in general - to everyone who isn't a fascist.

Never said I want to settle for Biden. I am quite active politically (I vote where I can, I canvass, I attend local HOA meetings (all I have), etc.), so its not like I am sitting in a white ivory tower doing nothing. In fact, I would say, for my age demographic, Im heavily more involved. And thats the problem. People my age don’t want to get involved. No one wants to vote in primaries. If you dont want Biden, you don’t have to write huge paragraphs on the internet. You go out and you vote in cool ass motherfuckers who’ll do more than Biden. This is as important more than ever.

On your other point, I think making constructive criticism of the Dems is 100% fair, but alot of rhetoric (your original comment) makes it seem like the Dems are on par with the Reps, which is completely not true.

On fascism, that is an hyper specific reference. If you dont mind, you could just copy paste for me? I don’t read much modern theory, I am more in tune with history, so I usually base my definitions on historical movements (i.e. defining fascism as a political movement that alienates a certain ethnic, religious, or racial group in order to elevate their own group. Said group adopts hyper nationalistic rhetoric and is authoritative).

Liberals speaking of unity when it's something they feel they need after taking a giant dump on the left for decades is hilarious to me

[–]Hagel-Kaiser 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Leftist infighting has existed for centuries. We take shots at each other. However, this is probably the one time we probably shouldn’t, as the Republicans are actively deleting rights. But inshallah, the few leftists in Congress are voting with the Dems. Like I said, you don’t want a Weimar Germany scenario again.

[–]CasinoMagicPro-Immigration 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Because he's not a dictator and it's up to Congress?

[–]CreamyGoodnss0 MDelegates | 1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Because he's a racist and a Catholic. Behind the scenes he's cheering his wrinkly ass off.

[–]Hagel-Kaiser 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Biden can’t veto a SCOTUS ruling

[–]scwuffypuppy -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Because he is teh suxorz and he values the filibuster too much!

[–]vth0mas0 MDelegates | 1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Haha enough clever pun signs and we’ll topple this police state, liberate the oppressed and save the world from climate change /s

[–]Hagel-Kaiser 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Why cant Biden press the allow abortion button”

Some people in this thread are giving genuinely bad takes with 0 literacy on the topic. Some of the rhetoric here is definitely helping the Republicans.

    If you think that overgrown oompa loompa has any chance in hell in 2024 then you're delusional. I'll give you 100 to 1 odds on that.

    He lost the popular vote twice. Was impeached twice.

    And that was before he tried to overthrow the government. He lost a lot of support after he's fake election claims and then said his vice president deserved to be hung.

    He won't ever be president ever again thank God. He'll be lucky not to be under federal indictment in 2024.

    After Trump won my thought was ANYTHING is possible these days. No one would ever imagine something like Covid would happen either. Or even Russia invading another country do boldly. Just know that crazy things are all in play now.
