Is Joe Biden a tool of progressive activists?
Are woke progressive activists going to pressure Joe Biden into embracing deeply unpopular and politically unsustainable policies which work to the advantage of the Right?
“(CNN) – White House officials signaled in a conference call with refugee resettlement advocates late Friday that President Joe Biden is likely to raise the current refugee cap of 15,000 quickly, well ahead of the May 15 deadline set Friday, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Deputy national security adviser Jon Finer told the advocates that Biden wants to work quickly to bring the refugees who have already been vetted and cleared to the United States after a prolonged delay, in which many of their flights were canceled.
The call comes after the White House faced immediate blowback from refugee groups and Democratic and progressive lawmakers for initially saying Friday that Biden would keep this fiscal year’s refugee cap of 15,000, and not raise the cap as he had promised to do — a significant reversal from the Biden administration’s proposal in February to lift the cap to 62,500.
After the flood of criticism, the White House backtracked later Friday and announced Biden would set a “final, increased” refugee cap by mid-May, but added that it’s “unlikely” the number would be as high as the 62,500 cap proposed earlier this year. …”
These people are the gift who keep on giving.
They’ve handed us a winning hand on race (systematic racism and white privilege or “White Nationalism”), immigration (open borders or “white supremacy”), crime and policing (Black Lives Matter and “Defund the Police” or “fascism”), civil liberties (authoritarian progressive police state or the Constitution), censorship (unpopular political and cultural elite orthodoxy or free speech), political correctness or wokeness (conform or else you will be severely punished), “trans” (20,000 different genders or women) and American heritage preservation (toppling statues of great Americans or preserving American history). You could argue that openly embracing “socialism” is another major winning issue with the “Latinx” voters.
Is the GOP smart enough to hammer at these eight issues which have a lot of traction in the Center of the electorate? I doubt it. It isn’t going to stop us from doing so and capitalizing on the mistake these people are making to promote our own cause.
