Sorry to inform you, that Joe Biden has been thrown to the curb, at least according To The Nation, a far-left reg that sets the tone for the Democrat base. This isn’t the first indication that Biden won’t be the choice in 2024. However, it may be the first major outlet to call for him to be thrown under the bus.
Jeet Heer was the one who wrote the hot take. Here are some of his thoughts.
Some of these proposals, while risky, could be met with opposition from Republicans, even GOP-appointed judges. These actions would also require more radicalism in the future. If Biden leases land to abortion clinics located on federal land, he would have to be ready to grant blanket preemptive pardons for doctors and patients in the event they were charged.
These radical proposals, despite their risks, would bring significant benefits. They would prove that reproductive rights are important, worthy of fighting for, and have the full support from the Democratic Party. They would transform Biden from a combative president to a leader for a just cause.
Biden is reluctant to engage in fighting because it involves them. Biden is a conciliator and not a combatant. His entire political personality is a great bipartisan, the man who brings people together from opposing camps. In 2019, he launched his political campaign on the assumption that Donald Trump had destabilized America through polarization, and racism. Biden believed he was the man who could heal these wounds. Biden’s goal as president was to lower the temperature and avoid partisan spats and return the USA to pre-Trumpian elite peace.
To be clear, Heer is a delusional hack who believes that Biden ever tried to lower the country’s temperature. Heer has done exactly the opposite and caused widespread division while pursuing policies that do severe harm to ordinary Americans.
His whole campaign purpose was to shout about Charlottesville repeatedly, lying outright and suggesting that the opposition supported what happened. He became the only far-left president in history and helped to kill America’s growing energy market after he took office. His rhetoric has become so sloppy that he calls half of the country “Ultra MAGA” while saying they want to arrest women who cross state lines. Biden crossed lines Barack Obama had never imagined.
The idea that the president of the United States is a moderate peacemaker is absurd. But, I have no doubt that Heer and other members of the Democrat base view him this way. Why? Because you can be that radical and even the radicals won’t seem radical to you.
Joe Biden is not Abraham Lincoln or Franklin Roosevelt. Biden is a placeholder president whose primary historical task was to defeat Trump. Biden now wants to pretend Trump never happened. The same reactionary politics that made Trump a reality are still alive and well, making them even more dangerous because they have been institutionalized in the courts as well as in the mainstream GOP. Biden is woefully unprepared to fight the battles in the present and the future.
Let me translate that for you: Biden is unwilling to outright overthrow the institutions of the United States in order to secure short-term political wins.
This is the real reason for these complaints. Biden has allowed the left to do whatever they like within the legal boundaries, and sometimes outside them until he is slapped. He has not done anything to stop the destruction of the Supreme Court if it isn’t total abrogation. Biden has been labeled by his own side as weak and unwilling for showing basic restraint.
Will this lead to him being ousted as a 2024 presidential candidate for the Democrat Party? He’ll probably not run again, for obvious reasons. Therefore, he will not be removed.
Heer’s editorial teaches us a lesson about how far the left has fallen away from reality. They shout about democracy, but they want to take complete control of its institutions. Biden, despite his radicalism, may not be willing to go that far. This should be a concern for everyone who wants to move forward. People like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whom Heer praised, don’t have such limits.
