Hollywood filmmaker, Michael Moore, is urging Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to pursue socialist ideas and while at it, to “go big” on his policies by eliminating the Electoral College.
The liberal documentarist and author also advised Biden, who has been declared the winner of the presidential election by some major news agencies, “not to try to get along” with Republicans once he takes over the presidency.
“YOU did it. WE did it! You stopped the madness. A grateful nation – and myself – are in a state of joy, hope and relief,” Moore said in his “open letter to Joe Biden” posted on Facebook.
“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 added.
Moore: Embrace socialism; reject cowardly center
Moore went on in his letter, urging Biden to embrace socialism, which he said is “preferred” by young people.
“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,” the liberal filmmaker said.
“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,” he added.
The Stupid White Men and Where’s My Country author also slammed former president Barack Obama for wanting “everyone to get along” under his administration, and not pushing the Democratic Party to the progressive side.
“Please do not make the same mistake an otherwise well-meaning President Obama made in his first two years. He wanted everyone to get along. He was willing to compromise on anything,” Moore wrote as he urged Biden to reject the “cowardly center.”
House Democrats have been battling the party’s disappointing performance during the election where the caucus lost at least nine seats to Republicans. Critics are blaming the party’s progressive push for these losses.
“Eliminate the Electoral College”
“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,” Moore went on.
“And GO BIG! Eliminate the Electoral College through the National Popular Vote Act! DONE!”
The Hollywood filmmaker then praised Democratic socialist champion, Senator Bernie Sanders, and asked Joe Biden to act unilaterally in overturning the policies put forward by President Donald Trump in the past four years.
“This past summer, your ‘Biden-Bernie’ unity joint task force identified a whopping 277 policies and decisions of Trump’s that you have the legal authority to immediately reverse by executive order or presidential policy decision … none of the above needs a single vote of the United States Senate!” he said.
“Find that big fat black marker of his and do it!” Moore added.
Resorting to executive orders could be the way to go for Biden if Republicans maintain control of the Senate. Currently, the GOP holds 50 seats against the 48 won by Democrats prior to two run-off elections in Georgia.
