On today’s show we get into the yoga positions Democratic candidates have to twist themselves into in order to placate their “woke” voter base. Also, Joe Biden has incurred the wrath of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez; Beto O’Rourke is relaunching his campaign by apologizing for his existence; the AFL-CIO fully endorses communism; and Elizabeth Warren smears Fox News in ways the left used to complain were a threat to life and the First Amendment.
Listen to the show:
Joe Biden has angered the new head of the Democratic Party, socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The freshman Congresswoman attacked the former vice president over a suggestion a staffer made that compromise and a middle way might be necessary and acceptable on climate change. For AOC, there is no compromise. Biden, after being criticized, disavowed the idea, embracing the radical left position. That’s a lot of things, but none of them could be considered leadership or courage. (RELATED: Joe Biden Responds To Ocasio-Cortez Criticizing His Climate Change Plan)
Beto O’Rourke is sorry. He’s sorry he’s white, that he’s male, that he’s wealthy, that’s he’s made harmless jokes, and appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair. Basically, he’s sorry he exists, and he apologized for all of it on The View yesterday after he “relaunched” his floundering presidential campaign. It was pathetic. But one this is beyond question — Beto is sorry, just not in the apologetic way.
The AFL-CIO, one of the biggest supporters of the Democratic Party, has now openly embraced communism. Retweeting a video by a new self-described “anti-capitalist” streaming service, the powerful union declared “We all need to seize the means of production,” a Marxist mantra espoused in the video. It wasn’t that long ago that the idea of a major political party embracing socialism seemed impossible, now an appendage of the Democratic Party blew right past it to communism. We have the audio.

When President Donald Trump criticizes the media, breathless journalists cry that it is a threat to their lives and the First Amendment itself. Elizabeth Warren, in turning down an invitation to hold a town hall on Fox News, went on a Twitter rant about how Fox is a haven of racism and hatred. She did so with no sense of irony, and the “journalists” that collectively clutched their pearls over Trump’s barbs were silent. Weird, right?
