Communist Party Leader Endorses Joe Biden

It should come as no surprise that the communists should endorse the Democratic candidate for the presidency. You do the same thing every time you vote for a Democrat. Instead of sticking with capitalism that drove one of the youngest free countries from a backwoods republic into the most powerful economic engine ever in the world is not their idea of progress.

For those of you whom insist that socialism or communism is the Utopia everyone is seeking, let me ask you one simple question. Can you name me one true socialistic or communistic country that has ever existed that had a thriving middle class? Or gave the opportunity to rise to the upper class without becoming part of a regressive and suppressive government?

Bob Avakian, the founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, told his followers that they should all support Joe Biden's bid for the presidency, even though he claims Biden would be no better for the country than Trump. But the reason he is anti-Trump is because Trump rejects communism, Democrats don't. With a Democrat, the communists have a chance of rising in prominence.

Avakian said:

“At this critical hour, every appropriate means of non-violent action must be utilized to remove this regime from power. And if, in spite of mass protest demanding the removal of the Trump/Pence regime, this regime remains in power when it is time for voting, then — using all appropriate means to work for the removal of this regime must include voting against Trump.”

“To be clear, this means not a ‘protest vote’ for some candidate who has no chance of winning, but actually voting for the Democratic Party candidate, Biden, in order to effectively vote against Trump.” 

“The question is not whether Biden and the Democrats represent something ‘good. Biden is not ‘better’ than Trump, in any meaningful way — except that he is not Trump and is not part of the move to consolidate and enforce fascist rule, with everything that means.”
