Michael Moore is a popular and liberal film producer and he wrote a long list of demands in an open letter on Facebook to Joe Biden. In the letter, he asks Biden to embrace socialism, abolish the Electoral College, declare health care a human right, reject bipartisanship, among other extreme views. He first expressed his gratitude that Joe Biden has won and the future he sees America heading once the self-proclaimed President-elect were to enter the White House.
He said that following the [premature] election results he and millions of Americans now feel joy and hope for the first time in a long time. “You stopped the madness. A grateful nation — and myself — are in a state of joy, hope and relief. Thank you for that! We are all eager to join with you to repair the damage done to our country — and to eliminate that about our society and our politics which gave us Donald Trump in the first place.”
He then went on to say that a Trump reelection would prompt millions more to die from the coronavirus despite his great efforts to fight the virus. Next, Moore called upon Joe Biden to reject capitalism, embrace socialism and inject the system into America. “I see various people trying to take credit for your victory — and using their personal agendas to push you away from the progressive Left and toward the cowardly center which believes that the best way to beat Republicans is to just be a more easily-digestible version of Republicans.
“They think because Trump got 70 million votes the Democrats should reject Black Lives Matter, AOC, and anything that vaguely sounds like socialism — at a time when the majority of our citizens under the age of 35, according to most polls, prefer the idea of democratic socialism over the greed of modern-day capitalism. Why risk losing them? We need to listen to and understand why they feel this way. They’ve been saddled with crushing student debt and we’ve handed them a planet In the middle of its 6th extinction event as their future.”
Moore then stated that when Obama entered the Oval Office he made the mistake of acting bipartisan. Then he urged Biden to not compromise on anything and be firm in his agenda. “The Republicans had already decided they were going to block EVERYTHING Obama proposed and that’s exactly what they did for eight long years with a discipline and a ruthlessness we should probably envy. Don’t let this happen to you. Charge in on January 20th like FDR on steroids. You have no choice. People are dying! You need to sign executive orders and cajole, demand and shame Congress into action.”
He then pleaded that Joe Biden eliminate the Electoral College and stated that elections should be decided through the popular vote. This is bold. He and several Democrats, celebrities or elected officials – like AOC – are earnestly asking Joe Biden to fully embrace their socialist, far-left agenda. Biden seems ready to do so as he’s already announced that he will be signing four executive orders on Inauguration Day – assuming he actually wins – to undo American progress from the Trump Administration.
