Last week, presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden echoed his former running mate, Barack Obama, in saying that we have an opportunity to “fundamentally transform” the United States.
Joe Biden calls coronavirus an “incredible opportunity…to fundamentally transform the country”
Make no mistake: Joe Biden is the bannerman for the radical socialist wing of the Democrat Party.

Using the Wuhan virus as a nice excuse for to presumably grow the government, Biden told a group of Latino supporters during a livestream that “If we do this right, we have an incredible opportunity to not just dig out of this crisis, but to fundamentally transform the country.”
According to Breitbart, this isn’t the first time Biden has talked about using the pandemic to advance Leftism.
He said April 22nd: I believe, because, sort of, the blinders have been taken off, because of this COVID crisis, I think people are realizing, “My Lord. Look at what is possible. Look at the institutional changes we can make – without us becoming a ‘socialist country,’ or any of that malarkey – that we can make to provide the opportunities to change the institutional drawbacks …” from education, all the way through to all the other things we talked about.
On April 17th, Biden said:“We have an opportunity now to take, in a recovery act, a real recovery. We can fundamentally change the science relating to global warming.”
And on April 16th, he said: “I think we have an opportunity now to significantly change the mindset of the American people, things they weren’t ready to do, even two, three years ago,” all thanks to the virus.
This eerily echoes the call from Obama during his 2008 presidential run, where he told a cheering crowd, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
I suppose there’s a silver lining in that if Biden is repeating Obama’s calls to “fundamentally transform” the country, it implies Obama wasn’t able to screw things up as much as he hoped.
It should be obvious that no one wants to “fundamentally transform” something they love. When Leftists tell you they hate America, believe them.
