Michael Moore praised for letter to Joe Biden demanding he embrace far left and eliminate Electoral College
In his open letter, he urged Biden to change the White House 'like FDR on steroids' and also avoid the mistakes that were made by former POTUS Barack Obama
Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has made it clear what he is looking forward to in a Joe Biden presidency. He hopes Biden will take on a radical left agenda that rewrites parts of the constitution and warm up to socialism.
Moore had taken to Facebook to share an open letter to president-elect Biden asking him to denounce centrism and embrace the far-left via a series of different steps which include abolishing the Electoral College and also pushing through universal health coverage. He has also urged Biden to pay attention to young Democrats under the age of 35 who have taken on and embraced socialism. He began his open letter by saying, "First of all, congratulations! YOU did it. WE did it! You stopped the madness. A grateful nation - and myself - are in a state of joy, hope and relief. 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."
Throughout Biden's presidential campaign, far left politicians and celebrities have stated that they would be trying to sway the former vice president to take on a more radical agenda should he be elected into the White House. Representative Alexandria Ocasio (D-NY) said "We can likely push Vice President Biden in a more progressive direction across policy issues."
Actress Jane Fonda had also said that she supports Biden as "you can push him" further left on issues such as the environment. Moore is the latest figure to try and convince Biden to embrace a much more leftist approach and agenda. In his open letter, he urged Biden to change the White House "like FDR on steroids" and also avoid the mistakes that were made by former POTUS Barack Obama. "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 has also demanded the elimination of the Electoral College and said, "You need to sign executive orders and cajole, demand and shame Congress into action. And GO BIG! Eliminate the Electoral College through the National Popular Vote Act! DONE!"
He had also spoken about how Biden should create universal health coverage backed by the government. He shared, "Health Care is a human right and every American must be covered. You MUST create a health system like every other industrial democracy — one backed by the government, not by the whims of the boss where you work or the pandemic that has shut him or her down. This is just plain common sense."
Many social media users seemed to be in agreement with Moore and took to the comments section to say so. One such user shared, "Thank you Michael. So beautifully written. I hope he reads it and takes it to heart." Another user commented, "I am so happy that democracy finally ruled the day and do many young people turned out to vote. Cannot wait to see the good stuff that starts to happen by February."
Yet another shared, "This made me cry. Every. Single. Word. We want so much to believe that all this could be true. I’m choosing to believe. I’m choosing hope. And yes, I’m ready to continue being a foot soldier in the cause. Go, Joe, Go!" While another shared: Michael Congratulations on your work to bring about this magnificent result not just for America but the world. I just can’t understand why a defeated incumbent stays in office for so long after election. I don’t know of any other democracy this is allowed to happen."
