I’ve already decided, in the first week of January, that this is going to be the year of the backlash. And I don’t mean against the right or against Trump.
Trump’s own legacy stands just fine. The conservative base stands just fine. The Democrat Left has some accounting to do – or some accountability to reap.
We may have a running narrative in the media about Trump but the real backlash is coming against the Left. For what? Well, how about everything? Biden spoke to some Republicans post election and told them ‘I guess I’m the dog that caught the car.’
The guy who could not campaign or speak half the time, let alone articulate a real agenda. He was the perennial critic of the COVID response. He was the character critic of Trump. But that boomerang is coming right back to hit him in the forehead. He got the car.
He dodged the court packing agenda, which the left clamors for. He dodged the question about shutting down frackiing and those big green-deal plans. He dodged his agenda.
Though he agreed with both. He promised a commission to provide Court reforms. A great way to keep himself from being accountable. He selected a former president of a union for his Labor Secretary. He promised a big spending bill forthwith. He vowed to raise the minimum wage to 15 dollars pronto.
He said something I have not heard from a president before. When nominating his Labor Secretary, he said it is not enough that government protect unions but it must encourage, support, basically promote unions. Sound like boilerplate rhetoric? I don’t think so.
“Marty knows worker power means not just protecting the right to unionize, but en-cour-aging unionization and collective bargaining.”…”The government should en-cour-age the formation of unions. It also means protecting pensions, insuring worker safety, insuring workers are paid a minimum wage. /…making sure we have a trade policy where for every decision we make, unions are at the table, focused in winning good jobs for American workers….This is one of the most important departments to me.”
“Working people have been struggling for a long time under the erosion of their rights and the deep inequality of race, gender and class. For the last four years, they’ve been under assault — attacks on their rights, their livelihoods and the unions that built the middle class. We are facing hard times but nobody is tougher than the American worker.
And now, now we have the opportunity to put power back in the hands of working people all across this country. And that is a good thing for our economy and for the country. We can defend workers rights, we can strengthen collective bargaining, we can grow union membership.
We can create millions of good paying jobs with investments in infrastructure, clean energy and in high-tech manufacturing, along with the workforce training to help get those people into those good jobs. This team, the Biden-Harris team has the plans to make this happen.”
Harris says… “we will create millions of good paying union jobs.”
Right to work anyone? How’s that for a super pro-union supporting agenda?
Mom and pop small businesses, meet your big pro-union government.
Joe also promised his Justice department would investigate incidents at the border — you heard about them for months — for any criminal activity. Who’s on that target list?
Bottom line: you can’t trust Biden. If he wanted to be a union organizer he should have been one. And the evolutionary backlash to Democrats will also be coming.
There are 3 major factions to the Democrat Party. The only unifying thing is their hatred of Trump. Without that, it is internal squabbles and infighting. Unions can’t help that any.
But let the backlash commence after January 20th. No honeymoon or vacation time.
