JOE BIDEN, SO-CALLED ‘PROGRESSIVES’ AND THE REARRANGEMENT OF THE POLITICAL LANDSCAPE

Submitted by Pachamama

As the coalition of forces gather with their vested interests of displace the American fascist dictator, Donald Trump, on a civil warlike political battlefield, it is becoming quite clear that people who call themselves ‘progressives’ will only awake to the machinations, political tricks, being conjured and to the tectonic shifts under the battlefield when it is far too late. Such a re-imagining of American politics, as neoliberalism was the remixing of economic policies, must of necessity, leave ‘progressives’ out in the cold.

We are estimating that this Democratic-led coalition which is likely to emerge from a possible victory will lurch much further rightward than progressives are generally imagining. For Joe Biden is merely running as a Democrat but intends to rule as a Republican. This is all he has known all his life. Being a conservative Democrat means being a Republican. Same as Obama, there are few differences between factions within the duopoly. Biden has never been known to instinctively done anything progressive in his whole life. Above all, politics is about slicing and dicing as an acceptable method of gaining power, not being a fountain of virtue. Not interfering with the hideous structural infirmities on which the country has been built. This is representative of Joe Biden to the bone!

Therefore, it would be irrational to expect a man like Biden to approach, for example, the misanthropically inspired symbology represented by the ‘Star Spangle Banner’, the national anthem, which glorifies slavery in one of its verses. Or revisit the 13th Amendment of the constitution which still legalizes slavery for people in America’s dungeons, 80% of whom are of colour. Need we go on?

Then, the question which progressives will never get answered is – how could he ‘Build Back Better’ on such a flawed foundation? All Biden really wants to do is to get back to how things were before Donald J. Trump was thrown up by the political culture as if those represented halcyon days for Afrikan-Americans, supposedly his most dependable bloc. That’s all!

But, who are these people generally referred to as ‘progressives’? Well, they could be any motley bunch of political gradations from the far-right to the far-left and in-between. To the far-right they may include Republicans who support the logic of climate change and even never-Trumpers. To the far-left they may be communists, antifascists, socialists or even Trotskyists influenced by the lesser of two evils logic.

In this scenario, Joe Biden would, in effect, be the ‘unwitting’ savior of the Republican Party which is likely to be devastated by a massive defeat, if current polling holds true and in the event Trump is unable to complete that well-planned dastardly act currently underway. Should Biden be buoyed by the winds of a fierce national and overwhelming determination which forces Trump into having no other choice but to leave the White House, even to the point of duress if deemed necessary he saves the Republican Party. In so doing, he would be serving the hordes of Republicans seeking asylum within the Democratic Party as a way of making sure the indispensable other half of the American political duopoly survives Trumpism – the Republican Party.

When we look back at the presidency of Trump, in this scenario, it might appear as though a level of master planning, by hidden hands, paved the way for Biden. He could have the prefect landing to enable him to jettison feckless progressive operating under the assumption that this Democratic Party’s ‘donkey’ will take them somewhere. In addition, Biden could have a highly conservative Supreme Court; a Senate which could be Democratic led but more than willing to serve his less than obvious conservative agenda and a House of Representatives acting likewise with muted or sporadic objections from its progressive caucus.

In these circumstances, the LGBTQ identity politicos, who played such an enormous role during the Obama administration, would not be able to co-exist with the Republican elements within the Biden Coalition, absent the few Log Cabin Republicans. If Biden is faced with a choice between these political forces, there is little doubt that he will go with his new-found friends for the fear about defections of the Republicans may cause too much imbalance within his coalition. He will seek to equalize that action by resting on the logic that the LGBTQ forces generally have nowhere else to go.

The same thinking holds true for Afrikan-Americans, Hispanics, and other progressives who will have nowhere to go notwithstanding the presence of a fledgling Green Party with a presidential candidate, Howie Hawkins, and up to maybe a 100 other people seeking the presidency. Defections of progressives are likely to be deemed as merely a temporary setback. Afrikan-Americans should not expect this reformulation of political forces within neoliberal capitalism will deliver any of Biden’s promises about ‘Building Back Better’ and so on. Nothing will happen but talk, until after the election when the drift to the right becomes public. Observers however, can see what a Biden administration will look like right now by the examination of his teams of advisers. To us such expectations are the equivalent of asking a dead man to change his will and expecting it to happen.

One good thing about Biden is that he has dared to locate himself as it to remove the scab from the old festering wounds making America the fascist state it might have always been and/or to which it has now degenerated for all to see. Of course, he was well assisted by the ongoing demonstrations throughout the country and being a politician there was a need for a response that made sense in order to garner the votes of Afrikan-Americans, women, progressives, young people etc.

In some ways Biden has been sheltered by Whiteness and a hyper focus in the country on what is wrongly seen as a cultural anomaly, the Trump presidency. However, the deeper truth is that Biden will never fix, or even start to fix, in eight (8) years, what was consolidated over four centuries.

Guided by history, only the total and complete destruction of American empire can satisfactorily settle these deeply divisive issues, correct all the fundamental social problems that have been termed ‘original sins’. Some contend that this fatal option maybe better that Biden’s return to an abnormal normalcy. Progressives should have long recognized the existential forces at work and found ways to insert someone more able to deal the rebuilding that has to happen and therefore avoid this Biden misdirection.

    Most slave owners did not live on large plantations!!

    Yet my son fights to chart his own path and make his own decisions.

    There is no harmony in relationships between people of unequal power. There is only a biding of the time until the trapped one can be free.

    Any slaves who were docile were not those who knew freedom in Africa. They were bred into slavery and persuaded that they were beasts of burden.

    They were not mad either. Bad, not mad. Just as Trump, bad minded, dangerous, but not mad.

    I am glad that he made that statement, as it it frames everything that he has ever said and as you noted, can now be used to filter whatever he says in the future.

    Better to know what you stand against, than not know your enemy.

    Now, you also understand why Trump won last election and why yes, he can win again. Because there are millions like John, who have no problem with slavery, who are as callous as the day is long.

    You do realise that if Hitler rose tomorrow, millions would still follow him too?

    Quakers took their thinking on equality right to the grave.

    Their graves are to be found all over Barbados, the vast majority unmarked.

    They did not believe they needed a priest to come between them and God so their burials were not performed by a priest.

    The vast majority are not buried in a churchyard and do not appear in parochial registers, burial, baptism or marriage!!

    Some are buried around former Meeting Rooms, others in their land (garden) or the lands (gardens) of other Friends.

  • K.C. Hawkins was an artist.

    She taught at QC I believe.

    One of her pieces of art is in my sister’s home.

    Her niece married my uncle.

    Used to drive a buggy up to the 90’s!!

    Her father Dr. Hawkins, was one of the founders of Plantations Limited.

    He is also credited with giving J.N. Goddard (Goddards Enterprises) a start

    An old cane cutter now long dead, Mr. Rollock, told me Dr. Hawkins introduced the condom to Barbados.

    The old man smiled wryly and told me it was said of Dr. Hawkins at the time that he wanted to kill out black people!!

    Those were the days when women routinely had 14 plus children.

  • Ah ha….Kathleen. What I was missing. I associated her with a horse called Asteroid, nuff speed for 3-4 furlongs, then things got “iffy”. White with a red hoop, black cap. The program just said Miss K.C Hawkins. From the link I gather she was more an artist than anything else!! Does that also explain why said uncle worked at Plantations?

    Any black , brown, latin or other non white person voting for this bunch of racist beasts needs their head examined.

    A phrase like black people need to want success could only come from such an entitled little sod. Even a poor white person should feel the same way, that such a statement is also derogatory and dismissive of any person, white, black or other, who happens to be poor.

    That statement coming from a descendant of a shyster conman is a joke.

    Many people choose not to con their way to money. That does not make them less.

    @Sergeant, yes that’s an interesting set of circumstances you highlighted re Hunter Biden’s incredulous laptop repair decision … but what in MHO was the kicker to this story thus far was Vlad Putin himself being quoted saying in effect that he saw nothing wrong with Hunter’s business activities in Ukraine! 🙈 What!

    In the parlance of the dangerous games played by these spies/intel folks that was an attempted game , set and match call !

    The freaking AMAZING thing about all this is that the freaking POTUS is directly involved in this level of subterfuge to affect national US interests … and could give a damn… he and his loyalists are basically telling the entire US nation … eff you!

    BTW, reports also note that similar data as purported to be from the laptop was being peddled in Ukraine since last year…. sorta like BEFORE the blind repair dude had found this data trove.

    But all that said, this plot is diabolically well ‘engineered’ and beautifully timed … but Hunter also appears as ‘stupid’, narcissistic and also ‘could give a damn’ as some of his life choices suggest. Thus the combination has created just enough BS to cause problems for the Bidens.

    POTUS has to go down tho, this level of indifference to rule of law cannot be continued so openly and brazenly at this highest level.

    @Crusoe, there is great upside to John’s commentary: we know beyond a doubt the depth of the man’s hate and despair and in turn should better appreciate that there are many like him (White and regrettably some Blacks) in Bim.

    As much as we have seen that type of animosity during our lives or from our history books it’s always very useful to have these harsh reminders.

  • I doubt David had Aids!!!

    There was a rumour circulated way back in the 80’s that his name was on the “List” but if it were true he would have been dead years ago.

    I suspect that stigma harmed his practice.

    Bajans are cruel!!

    That was long before effective treatments for sufferers of the AIDS virus were available.

    He was effeminate and that lent to his characterization as being homosexual but I can’t say I had any proof.

    His brother, Iain, the actor, admitted to being in a same sex civil union/marriage … right here on BU and there are rumours that all of his siblings were/are gay.
