Vice President Mike Pence warned, “Joe Biden and the Democratic Party have been overwhelmed by the radical left,” after being confirmed as a candidate for re-election, alongside President Donald Trump.
Pence, listed some of the points on the agenda of Democratic presidential candidate Biden, which confirmed the strong leftist infiltration in his party.
“Their agenda is higher taxes, socialized medicine, open borders, abortion on demand, and funding cuts to the men and women who serve law enforcement,” Pence said on the first day of the Republican National Convention, in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Aug. 24.
The Trump administration has worked hard to fulfill the promises made in the 2016 campaign, and if re-elected, it would further strengthen the gains made, Pence said in his speech.
“We’re going to take our case to the American people. It’s a case of lower taxes, free-market economics, secure borders, right to life,” Pence continued to announce to his audience.
The description of the leftist presence adopted by the Democrats is shared by several analysts.
“Joe Biden is running on the most progressive platform of any Democratic candidate in recent history,” said Waleed Shahid, director of communications for the Democrats for Justice, according to Vox.
This coincides with the analysis of Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, for whom the fact that radical extremists have taken over the Democratic Party is not the best thing.
“They mark a sad and dangerous new chapter for their party,” because they pursue policies that are harmful to Americans, according to an opinion piece she wrote for Fox News on Aug. 12.
Some of the proposals on the leftist Democratic agenda are not accepted, “Ideas like Medicare for all, a green New Deal, defunding the police, and taxes on wealth did not win in the primaries,” said Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias.
Biden’s political record shows he is not a born leader, but as an influential politician, as argued by Lily Geismer, a professor of history at Claremont McKenna College who has written extensively on the Democratic Party and liberalism.
“Biden is best understood as reflecting or reacting to the main pillars of the party over the past 40 years, rather than leading or shaping them,” Geismer said according to FiveThirtyEight.
