Joe Biden Just Lost Any Claim to Being a Moderate With His Embrace of the Green New Deal

We hear a lot about former VP and 2020 candidate Joe Biden’s “electability.” This so-called electability stems from the idea that Biden is a return to a more moderate Democratic party, and away from the infection of radicalism that has seized it.


But anyone who was leaning on Biden for centrism is gravely mistaken, and it’s proven with his nod toward Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal.” In fact, Biden not only thinks it doesn’t go too far, it doesn’t go far enough, according to the Daily Wire:

Biden made the remarks during a CNN town hall event on climate change that was set up in a way that sensationalized the issue with hysterical claims and featured numerous false claims from candidates.

“Do you think it goes too far?” CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Biden about the Green New Deal. “Is it unrealistic promising too much?”

“No, no it’s not,” Biden responded.

Biden continued by suggesting that the plan actually did not go far enough in terms of laying out specifics for how it would be implemented.

The problem is that the “Green New Deal” is essentially a socialist takeover of the United States more than it is a climate bill. It calls for a massive restructuring of America’s infrastructure that is, frankly, so unrealistic that even Democrats were laughing at it. Even environmental groups are distancing themselves.


To this day, Ocasio-Cortez still hasn’t told us how we’re going to pay for it. What’s more, AOC herself has more or less admitted that it’s an avenue to a social justice driven society and the advancement of its agendas. What she’s not telling you is that her plan would also require a lot of materials we can only get from places like Russia and China, who would indebt us deeply that they’d essentially own us.

Embracing any of this isn’t a sign of centrism. This is radicalism, plain and simple. If Biden is embracing this kind of thing and even saying it doesn’t go far enough, then Democrats would do well to distance themselves from Biden as fast as they possibly can.

At this point, America has two options in 2020. It’s either Donald Trump or socialism. There doesn’t seem to be an option outside of these two.
