Black Lives Matter Marxist co-founder Patrisse Cullors made a point to remind Joe Biden that if he makes it to the Oval Office, he owes the radical organization a great deal.
Cullors wrote a letter to Biden, under the assumption that he will be elected President, demanding to have a sit downs and discuss the organization’s agenda and lay out exactly what they expect from his and his administration while in office.
“Without the resounding support of Black people, we would be saddled with a very different electoral outcome,” Cullors wrote to Biden and his runningmate Kamala Harris. “In short, Black people won this election.”
Cullors, very vocally reminded Biden that the far-left group “want[s] something for their vote,” adding they “want to be heard and our agenda to be prioritized.”
Cullors claimed the “United States has refused to directly reckon with the way that it devalues Black people and devastates our lives,” calling for even more progressive action.
“This cannot continue. Black people can neither afford to live through the vitriol of a Trump-like Presidency nor through the indifference of a Democrat-controlled government that refuses to wrestle with its most egregious and damnable shame,” she said.
Cullors claimed that Biden and Harris, who both ran on a platform that mentioned addressing systemic racism, owed it to the movement to act on their rhetoric and further the work of “Black liberation.”
“We issue these expectations not just because Black people are the most consistent and reliable voters for Democrats, but also because Black people are truly living in crisis in a nation that was built on our subjugation,” Cullors added.
Cullors reminded Biden and Harris that they both “expressed regrets regarding your record on issues impacting Black people,” and advised them to “take your direction from Black grassroots organizers that have been engaged in this work for decades, with a legacy that spans back to the first arrival of enslaved Africans.”
Last week in Wilmington, Delaware, Joe Biden thanked his black voters during a premature victory speech. “The African American community stood up again for me. They always have my back, and I’ll have yours,” Biden said at the Chase Center. “I said from the outset I wanted a campaign that represented America, and I think we did that. Now that’s what I want the administration to look like.”
Joe Biden’s 47 years in politics however, have arguably done more harm to the black community than any other government official still serving, or running for office, and his running mate is equally responsible for being a detriment to the betterment of the African American community – something Cullors won’t soon forget.
Cullors demands make it clear that the Democratic party has been hijacked by the radical left wing of the party and Joe Biden will act as nothing more than their puppet, just as President Trump has warned us for months.
“We would like to be actively engaged in your Transition Team’s planning and policy work,” Cullors said. “Let’s get to work!”
