Remember Rahm Emanuel in his conversation with Obama about the base: “Those fucking hippies!” That’s what they think of us. The only difference is the Republicans say we have no right to eat, while the Democrats toss a few slices of bread out of the limousines they tool around in. Emanuel himself, net worth $13 billion, takes a limo everywhere. See that $billion sign next to Emanuel’s name? That’s who the Democratic Party really represents. Just a different, more culturally liberal, group of billionaires.
The Democratic Party base has a seat at the table now, which is both good and bad. The DNC types like Biden go full left on cultural BS, while making only some tinkering around the edges incremental changes on economics and foreign policy, the true red meat issues.
By the way, Kamala Harris was known as “the Senator from Wall Street.”
Joe Biden has long been “The Senator of the Credit Card Companies.” Notice all those banksters hightailed it to Delaware? That’s because Delaware put in the most lax regulations in the land that lets the banksters fleece their customers and investors.
No one in the base of the Democratic Party thinks Biden is anywhere on the Left, except maybe on cultural nonsense. Almost all true progressives really dislike him and say he’s just another Republican. Harris is somewhat better, but the base isn’t wild about her either. The base doesn’t elect the Democratic candidate for president, though. That’s done by the corporate Democrats in the smoke-filled rooms of the DNC.
