President Biden has reinstated critical race theory in the federal government. In response, we have launched a campaign to file lawsuits against schools, corporations, and government agencies that teach the principles of race essentialism, collective guilt, and neo-segregation. pic.twitter.com/KautgNGIIB— Christopher F.

Is Joe Biden a moderate?
Is the Democratic Party the party of cultural elites or the working class?
Is he going to focus on the priorities and agenda of the American people or catering to the cultural radicalism of the White professional wing of his party? Have we gotten rid of Trump only to restore the DILEs to power? Neoliberal Joe is currently throwing some red meat out to his base:
“Pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct the foreign relations of the United States, I have determined that it is in the foreign policy interests of the United States to defer through June 30, 2022, the removal of any Liberian national, or person without nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia, who is present in the United States and who was under a grant of DED as of January 10, 2021. I have also determined that any Liberian national, or person without nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia, who is present in the United States and who was under a grant of DED as of January 10, 2021, should have continued employment authorization through June 30, 2022. …”
Who knew that a temporary amnesty for Liberians was at the top of the Joe Biden agenda? In fairness, we can’t blame this one entirely on Joe. Donald Trump signed the 2020 NDAA which included the “Liberian Refugee Immigration Fairness” provision and extended it through January 21. This was a Trump policy that expired at the end of his term which Joe has renewed. It is bad optics.
“Section 1. Policy. Every person should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to live without fear, no matter who they are or whom they love. Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports. Adults should be able to earn a living and pursue a vocation knowing that they will not be fired, demoted, or mistreated because of whom they go home to or because how they dress does not conform to sex-based stereotypes. People should be able to access healthcare and secure a roof over their heads without being subjected to sex discrimination. All persons should receive equal treatment under the law, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation. …”
“WASHINGTON — President Biden set off a heated identity politics debate less than 24 hours into his presidency when he signed a gender discrimination order that has drawn heat from critics who accuse him of erasing women’s rights.
Language in the order would allow transgender women to participate in women’s sport leagues.
The policy seeks to enforce a Supreme Court ruling from last year that prohibits discrimination on the basis of someone’s gender identity and sexual orientation.
“Every person should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to live without fear, no matter who they are or whom they love,” read the order, signed on Biden’s first day in office Wednesday. …”
Of all the things the incoming Biden administration could focus on right now, it has chosen to focus on “trans women” competing in women’s sports and giving “trans people” access to the locker room and restroom of their choice. This is the definition of a DILE issue and priority. No one else in the country is pushing for this shit or thinks it should be at the top of the agenda.
In fairness to Joe, the Biden administration is only applying the logic of the Bostock decision. Last summer, the Supreme Court ruled that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 covers discrimination against gender fluid or transgender people. So, it is really John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch who are responsible for this, which is why we said the Center Right is worthless. Those “conservative judges” who we have heard so much about for decades gave the Left this victory and are the true authors of this policy.
“(CNN) The Department of Homeland Security is pausing deportations for 100 days, the department announced late Wednesday, with some exceptions.
The announced pause on deportations joins a list of sweeping changes made by President Joe Biden only hours after taking office, including halting border wall construction, drawing down the controversial “remain in Mexico” policy and revoking former President Donald Trump’s immigration enforcement actions.
The decision to temporarily halt deportations was made “to ensure we have a fair and effective immigration enforcement system focused on protecting national security, border security, and public safety,” according to a DHS news release. The moratorium, which Biden had pledged to impose during his campaign, will start Friday. …”
Joe Biden has made good on his promise to impose a moratorium on deportations of most illegal aliens. In the 2020 election, we saw a broad shift among Hispanic voters toward Donald Trump who had an extremely negative reaction to the Black Lives Matter and Antifa chaos last summer. DILEs treat Hispanics as a solid racial voting bloc and call them “Latinx” voters and assume that amnesty for illegal aliens and non-enforcement of immigration laws is at the top of their agenda. It actually quite racist when the polling shows that Hispanics are far more focused on health care and the economy. Hispanics are typically workers who are care about the same issues as other working class people.
“The pause is intended to allow time for an internal review.”
(W)e must ensure that our removal resources are directed to the Department’s highest enforcement priorities,” the memo reads, later adding: “The process shall provide for assessments of alternatives to removal including, but not limited to, staying or reopening cases, alternative forms of detention, custodial detention, whether to grant temporary deferred action, or other appropriate action.” …”
The pause on deportations is intended to “allow time for an internal review” and marks “a return to Obama-era policies.” Barack Obama’s DHS deported far more illegal aliens than Donald Trump which is one of the reasons we always laughed at the liberal hysteria over “fascism.”
In September 2020, Trump signed an executive order calling for an end to federal diversity training based on critical race theory. Critical race theory attempts to place racism and its effects into a historical context. Trump described the diversity training as “racist,” adding that the training was “teaching people to hate our country.” Trump’s order ended effectively ceased funding for the training in federal agencies.
Biden’s order reinstating the diversity training said that “a historic movement for justice has highlighted the unbearable costs of systemic racism.” …”
Joe Biden issued a new executive order which overturns Trump’s previous executive order on banning diversity training. This was one of a flurry of actions that Trump did late in the game to try to rally his flagging base. Predictably, it was shot down by a federal judge on Christmas Eve.
“With Biden killing the project, the company now says it will lay off about 1,000 workers. It hasn’t said how many are American and how many are Canadian, and the company didn’t answer Yahoo Finance’s questions on the matter. But construction projects were due to start this winter on elements of the pipeline in Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska. At peak construction, the project would have employed several thousand U.S. workers, jobs that will no longer materialize. …”
The two most important DILE issues are the environment and climate change. The White professional wing of the Democratic Party is focused on these sorts of issues and cultural radicalism. In pulling the Keystone Pipeline permit, Biden has started to take actions which are going to have a negative impact on Americans who work in the energy sector. The working class wing of the Democratic Party is obviously far less interested in these exotic issues and much more focused on their material well being.
As many of us feared, Neoliberal Joe is already favoring the DILEs.
He is already doing a lot of this culture war shit that no one but those people care about. It is like he reached into a hat and pulled out the most polarizing and unpopular ideas associated with the Democrats – open borders, comprehensive immigration reform, climate change extremism and the transgenders in women’s sports stuff – and decided that would be the note he wanted to open on. There is also talk of Joe establishing a dictatorship and passing a new domestic terrorism law and Big Tech censoring anyone in America who disagrees with this agenda and doesn’t trust the mainstream media.
Note: Joe is already making a big mistake by not governing as a moderate. The COVID-19 executive actions were fine, but tacking on all this unpopular, polarizing and controversial stuff only appeals to small constituencies. BTW, he owes us the $2,000, which is the issue most people care about.
