Sanders to 'The Squad': Electing Biden/Harris Is Just the Beginning


US Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-VT), joined members of “The Squad” in a conference call to reiterate his cooperation with the far-Left gaggle, and to assure them he intends to join them in pushing a Biden administration as far to the Left of the political spectrum as possible.

The far-Left members of “The Squad” – US Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) – joined Sanders in a virtual roundtable discussion last Friday. Through it all one common theme was present. Electing Joe Biden (D) would only be the “beginning” of their plans to push their radical agenda.

Sanders stated that his preferred goal was to ultimately make Biden the “most Progressive president since FDR.”

“But we understand that electing Biden is not the end-all. It is the beginning,” the Socialist Senator from Vermont said. “Do they [Biden’s plans] go as far as we would want? No, they don’t,” Sanders said.

“Biden, unlike Trump,” Sanders said to the agreement of the other panelists, “does not conceive of himself as a dictator…We’re not giving up on our agenda.”

Taking on the subject of the New Green Deal, Sanders made it clear that he agreed with the Squad members in that the total package must be embraced in a potential Biden administration. “We’re not retreating,” Sanders insisted. He also doubled-down on his commitment to support them in their radical agendas for criminal justice and immigration.

Sanders said, however, the first priority is to “defeat the worst president in the modern history of this country.”

Early on in his campaign for the presidency, Biden signaled he had no issue with embracing far-Left radicals in his cabinet. His selection of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the most liberal member of the Senate according to GovTracks, bears this out.

Biden has also adopted radical positions including rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement and creating a commission to “examine the impact of slavery and Jim Crow with the end goal of recommending ‘remedies,’ or reparations.”
