Progressive Group That Supported Ocasio-Cortez Not Big Fans Of Biden. Here’s What They Did.

Joe Biden, the 47th vice president of the United States, was the featured guest for the Tom Johnson Lectureship at the LBJ Presidential Library on Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017. The conversation was moderated by Mark Updegrove, former director of the LBJ Library. Biden represented Delaware for 36 years in the U.S. Senate before serving as vice president from 2009 to 2017 in the administration of President Barack Obama. As vice president, Biden addressed important issues facing the nation and represented America abroad, traveling over 1.2 million miles to more than 50 countries. He convened sessions of the President's Cabinet, led interagency efforts, and worked with Congress in his fight to raise the living standards of middle-class Americans, reduce gun violence, address violence against women, and end the devastation of cancer. The event was held in the LBJ Auditorium and was the fifth annual Tom Johnson lecture. The lecture series was created to honor Tom Johnson, who served for 30 years as chairman of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation Board of Trustees. Johnson also served as executive assistant to President Johnson and, later, as president and then chairman of CNN. 10/03/2017 LBJ Library photo by Jay Godwin

The progressive group that backed Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in her congressional campaign has now come out and voiced their opposition to former Vice President Joe Biden after he announced on Thursday that he would be running for president.

Apparently, Biden is a “centrist,” a member of the “old guard,” so the Justice Democrats aren’t supporting his presidential campaign. In other words, Creepy Uncle Joe isn’t radical enough for this bunch of freedom hating socialists, so they’re going to back a different horse.

“The old guard of the Democratic Party failed to stop Trump, and they can’t be counted on to lead the fight against his divide-and-conquer politics today. The party needs new leadership with a bold vision capable of energizing voters in the Democratic base who stayed home in 2016,” the group wrote on Twitter, where it has 180,000 followers.

However, should Biden grab the nomination, Justice Democrats stated they’d back him against Trump. Of course they would. To these folks a leather shoe would be a better option for president than the man who sits in the office now.

While this group’s lack of support will ultimate not impact Biden’s campaign on a deep level, it does expose the growing movement of radical progressives in our country who are not shy at all anymore about wanting someone deep, deep left to be in leadership position in this country.

This is quite worrisome. It would be easy to write off Justice Democrats as a nothing burger, but the fact they helped AOC shows that more and more young people are starting to fall into the democratic socialism camp, which does not bode well for the future of our republic.

You know your culture is in bad shape when someone like Joe Biden is considered a centrist and not radical enough. It’s down right terrifying.
