Johnstone: Biden Is Everything The Democrats Are

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com,

Joe Biden is not an “imperfect candidate” for the Democrats.

He is the perfect candidate, because he’s everything the party is: Demented. Decrepit. Bloodthirsty. Corrupt. Cronyistic. Authoritarian. Reactionary. Rapey.

He is exactly what they deserve. He is exactly what they are.

Joe Biden is the Democrat’s Democrat. He is the perfect representative of the party. They should even take it a step further and replace that donkey with Joe Biden.

Biden is to the Democrats as Trump is to the Republicans. Everyone’s just wearing their true face now.

If you’re willing to sacrifice all principles, all sanity and all morality to get rid of Trump, what exactly is the point of getting rid of Trump?

~

We know Biden is a liar. He’s been pinged for lying his whole career. Everyone is trying to undermine the victim’s character in order to discredit her while ignoring Joe’s character. We know he lies. He also has a history of unwanted sexual advances. His story is not credible.

~

Nobody actually believes that Biden didn’t sexually assault Tara Reade. Nobody’s actually confident that Creepy Uncle Hair Sniffer isn’t a rapist, they’re just pretending they are. I can understand saying “It’s possible but unproven”, but saying it’s false is so gross and dishonest.

They’re accusing Reade of lying for partisan reasons, when in reality that’s exactly what they are doing: they’re pretending they believe Handsy Joe Biden is incapable of shoving his fingers into a woman without her consent, and they are lying. Out of pure partisan loyalty.

~

It’s funny how refusing to support a literal dementia patient who has been credibly accused of rape for the world’s most powerful elected office is a very, very normal thing to do, yet people are acting like it’s bizarre and freakish.

~

Which looks more likely to you? (A) That Reade seeded a bunch of vicious lies about Senator Joe Biden in the 1990s with the intention of someday sabotaging his presidential bid in the distant future for some reason, or (B) that a powerful man sexually assaulted a woman?

~

It’s so weird how Joe Biden is a spent piece of leftover 1970s beltway flotsam made of plastic donor class dinner parties and AIPAC lobbying but everyone’s all pretending they like him as a person and stuff.

~

There are no fact-based and intellectually robust arguments for working within the establishment to manifest revolutionary agendas, but there are a lot of highly effective intellectually dishonest arguments for why it’s okay for you to pretend otherwise and go back to sleep.

~

“They destroyed the economy over a virus, but the narrative about the virus is completely fake!”

Perhaps. But so is the narrative about “the economy”.

~

Terence McKenna once said “We are led by the least among us. The least intelligent, the least noble, the least visionary.” Can’t think of a better illustration of this than having Donald Trump versus Joe Biden competing for the most powerful elected office on the planet.

~

Hey remember when Trump provoked a missile retaliation that led to scores of injured US soldiers by assassinating Iran’s top military commander for no legitimate reason, lied about the whole thing, and then suffered no consequences or political repercussions of any kind? Good times.

~

Democrats are so fucking stupid and ridiculous that the Krassenstein brothers are still a thing.

~

All of humanity’s worst atrocities have been legal. Genocide. Slavery. Torture. The fact that you can squint at the imprisonment and extradition of a journalist for exposing US war crimes in such a way that makes it look “legal” does not mean it isn’t unforgivably evil.

~

It’s always about power. Power comes before everything, including profit, which is why you see escalations against nations who’d be very profitable to continue trading with and why critics of US foreign policy are attacked far more aggressively than critics of its domestic policy.

Manipulators understand that wealth control is a means to power and not an end in itself; that’s why you see things like Zuckerberg hurting his own profit margins by making changes to Facebook which make the platform less fun to use but shore up establishment narrative control.

Power trumps profit every time. Manipulators are driven ultimately by the desire to control as many humans as possible to the greatest extent possible. Money is a useful tool for accomplishing that, but in a pinch they’ll swap it out for military/police force or censorship etc.

Wealth is a narrative construct and can be gained or lost or made obsolete in a new narrative paradigm. Elite manipulators understand that it’s hard, nonconceptual control over hard, nonconceptual objects that gives them their actual alpha status over the rest of the humans.

~

“A newly democratized media environment has made it difficult for people to distinguish fact from fiction.”

‘Oh no! What do we do?’

“Censor everyone except authoritative news sources.”

‘Authoritative news sources? Like who?’

“The ones who lied about Russiagate and all the wars.”

~

As a general rule, indie media should not attack other indie media. If you’re not punching up, you’re punching down.

~

People ask me “Well, what should we do? How do we fix this thing?” And of course my only possible answer is, “Do what I’m doing! Or your version of it.” Of course I’m doing the thing I think we should do to solve the problems of our species. Why would I be doing anything else?

~

Revolution is an inside job. This is not an egoically pleasing fact, but it is a fact. It’s much more fun for egoic mind to believe both the problem and the solution exists in other people, but in reality the changes you can make in yourself will have far greater effects on the world.

There are vast, vast depths within all of us, and we are capable of making vast, vast changes to those depths. We are in fact far more capable of doing this than we are of changing the outside world through force of will. And interestingly when we do this, we do change the world. And we do it far more efficaciously than we can by trying to will it to conform with the noises in our babbling thinky brain.

  1. You’ve got to be kidding? Biden hasn’t got a damn thing right in 40 years. What a waste of tax payers money!

  2. Caitlin Johnstone piped what I’ve said all along, since Biden announced. He’s the demonrats demon.
    But considering all he is, and the potential of going up against Trump in November, he’s still the perfect can’t-i-date. He’s expendable in many respects. He’s joke in also as many.
    He will not win over Trump unless the demonrats find a way to discredit Trump or sway public opinion.
    Biden can’t help himself. He’s too old in the sense that he’s been in the biz too long, and has become too comfortable with the rhetoric of the party, and assumption of party protections and their media acolytes.
    I was surprised to see Mika Emilie Leonia Brzezinski Scarborough take such a hard line with him the other day.
    I wonder how many of her fans are screaming?
    Biden will never be president. He stands a better chance of ending up in quid-pro-quo-court before the November election.
    Trump is too popular, and the demons know it. They keep their evil going because it’s the only thing they know, and they need to keep their remaining base fired up.
    The demonrats have lost some of their base due to what they’ve done with the Wuhan virus shutdown panic fear-mongering and draconian measures. the media will portray the protectors around the country as nothing but right-wing-nut-jobs, but many of those protectors have been democrats and former democrats and a bunch of independents. Poverty effects more than those against an issue. It’s not just a red-neck issue, as many of the snotty media elitist wish to portray (Don Lemon-aids).
    I would really love to see Trump destroy Biden on a debate stage, but I doubt it will happen.
    There’s a reason we keep seeing Hitlery around him and all over the news. She’s like a roach, can’t kill ’em. And, the lame-stream-media is still promoting Cuomo as potential prez-material. (He’s said publicly he will not run, but he’s famous for going back on his words.)
    Biden’s family is still encouraging him to stay in the race, even though it is SO obvious he can’t do it, and is not suitable for the job. All these basement videos being put out are nothing more than evidence compilations in anticipation for his upcoming trials. The family members need him to be quiet, and forgetful, so they can claim diminished capacity and not have him on the stand as a witness to their evil dealings accrued while he was VP. Plus, it may keep him out of prison as well.
    Yes, Biden is a demon’s demon.
