Biden Scores Big Endorsement From Revolutionary Communist Party Leader

Presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden has already scored the endorsements of Trump haters, former Bush regime "Republicans" and celebrities and now his leftward lurch has landed the nod from an ideological fellow traveler.
Lunchbucket Joe has landed the coveted endorsement of Bob Avakian who has led the Revolutionary Communist Party since 1979 and with Bernie Sanders having slunk off with his tail between his legs, the former vice president is the next best thing.
Mr. Avakian who is the author of a series of communist manifestos including Phony Communism Is Dead... Long Live Real Communism!, Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America, Away With All Gods! and the enduring classic From Ike to Mao and Beyond: My Journey from Mainstream America to Revolutionary Communist, called for his comrades to cast their votes for Biden.
In a statement that served as both a missive for his fellow revolutionary communists and a sign that Biden is now appealing to the most extreme elements of society, Avakian discouraged the flock from voting for a third party in November's election.
Via Breitbart News, "Communist Party Leader Endorses Joe Biden":
Communist Party leader Bob Avakian has announced his support for former Vice President Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election.
Avakian, the founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, told his followers in a statement on Saturday that they should vote for Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
“At this critical hour, every appropriate means of non-violent action must be utilized to remove this regime from power,” said Avakian in his statement. “And if, in spite of mass protest demanding the removal of the Trump/Pence regime, this regime remains in power when it is time for voting, then — using all appropriate means to work for the removal of this regime must include voting against Trump.”
Avakian went on to clarify that he does not want his followers to vote for a third party candidate, and that their vote must be for Biden.
“To be clear, this means not a ‘protest vote’ for some candidate who has no chance of winning, but actually voting for the Democratic Party candidate, Biden, in order to effectively vote against Trump,” wrote the communist leader.
Avakian added that he still considers Biden and the Democrat Party “representatives and instruments of this exploitative, oppressive, and literally murderous system of capitalism-imperialism,” but that all of that needs to be disregarded for now, as ousting Trump is more important.
“But this election is different,” affirmed the communist leader.
Normally Avakian and his fellow commies would not vote for any mainstream Democrat but with Bernie gone and their loathing of President Trump and Vice President Pence who are both devoutly pro-American and anti-socialist/communist, he is calling for unity behind Biden who is a Trojan horse for those seeking to impose an extremism never before seen in America.
Excerpted from Avakian's deranged screed:
There is the possibility that Trump could actually win the election—although whether he wins or loses, this election will involve unprecedented moves to suppress the votes of those opposing him and to use other illegal means to enable him to remain in power. And, even more essentially, with the clear understanding of the fascist nature of this regime, and the full implications of that, this regime is illegitimate, regardless of the means by which it has come to power and moves to retain and further consolidate power. Hitler and the NAZIs came to power in Germany in the 1930s through the “normal channels” of the “democratic system” there—including elections—but there was absolutely nothing “legitimate” about their rule and all the truly unspeakable horrors it led to. And the same basic principle applies to the Trump/Pence regime. By its very nature and content, there is no such thing as “legitimate” fascism.
Whatever happens with the election—and even if Biden wins and succeeds in actually taking office—there will be no “return to normalcy.” First of all, the fascists—those still in powerful positions, and the fascist “base” in the wider society—will not allow it. And, in any case, no one should want it. The “normalcy” of this system has always included the barbaric oppression of Black people and other people of color, with systematic terror, brutality and murder to enforce this oppression. It has always included vicious discrimination, bigotry and violence against immigrants, women, LGBTQ people, and any others regarded as inferior and “alien.” It has always included unjust wars for empire, and continuing crimes against humanity. It now poses a threat to the very existence of humanity through its increasing devastation of the environment and the ever present threat of nuclear war.
It may be a bit cruder but it is definitely in line with the rhetoric spewed by the neo-Marxist Black Lives Matter movement, talking heads on CNN and MSNBC, AOC and her Squad and the celebrity Twitter posse.
That Biden is broadening his appeal to the craziest people in America is evident and he is going to need them to push his mentally-misfiring carcass across the finish line.
