As most of you probably already know, Joe Biden announced his run for the presidency, much to the displeasure of the social justice warriors:
The “women of color” who hosted this week’s presidential forum expressed frustration that the leading Democrat candidates are old, white men. It is an example, they say, of “racist” and “sexist” polling.
In particular, a member of the organizing committee for the event insisted that polls showing Joe Biden in the lead were absurd, especially because he had not yet even officially joined the race as the polls were being conducted, according to Politico.
“With all due respect to the vice president, he hasn’t even announced yet, but he’s the frontrunner?” said Leah Daughtry, organizer of the “She the People” event. “Racism and sexism are part of the fabric and the fiber and the founding of our country,” she added, “and the way that the [Democratic] candidates are being treated, it just reminds you of that. We’re not past it.”
Another minority Democrat activist, LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Voters Matter, also slammed the media for pushing white men as the Democrat frontrunners.
“When you got a media that’s constantly saying Biden and Beto and Bernie and literally elevating the male candidates, I think that’s going to be reflected in the polls,” Brown said.
Of course, the media has been doing no such thing. In fact, the media has been trying to torpedo Biden’s candidacy by running negative stories against him, claiming he is a sexual harasser of women. It is my belief the media prefers Kamala Harris and would like to kneecap Biden’s candidacy.
However, it is important to note that Democrat voters are still going to have their say. I believe that a lot of Democrat voters want to virtue signal, but also want to vote for a candidate that doesn’t scare them and makes them feel safe.
It may be hard for us to remember, but Obama originally ran as a moderate Democrat in 2008. He was, as Biden himself once said, “clean and articulate.” He was unthreatening, and pushed the idea hard that he would be the one to finally heal America’s racial divide. Only after he was elected did the extent of his radicalism become clear.
Biden, Bernie, and Buttigieg all have a lot of the advantages Obama did – Democrat voters don’t feel threatened by them, and feel they won’t really follow through on any leftist rhetoric they belt out. That way Democrats can feel they did their duty as liberals while also feeling comforted that they voted for somebody “safe.”
SJWs have a lot of power in the Democrats. They control the upper echelons of the party, they’re backed by very powerful and wealthy billionaires, and they control the media and academia. But they are not numerous enough or powerful enough yet to completely ignore the will of the voters. In the end, Democrat voters will be the ones to decide who the party’s nominee is going into 2020, not the SJWs.
Of course, the SJWs could always try to throw out the election results, but I think that will go about as well as the Republicans’ attempts to throw out the primary election results in 2016.
