(Right Country) – What a year it has been.
There’s been an impeachment, a pandemic, murder hornets, race riots, and lots and lots of communism.
While Marxism is more normalized than ever before and radical left-wing activists practically have the Democratic Party eating out of their hands, the vast majority of Americans probably won’t check the box next to the name of a bonafide communist.
At least, hopefully.
This is what the Biden campaign likely believes, as they grapple with the fact that one of their top contenders for VP, Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) has said some very friendly things about dictatorial Marxist regimes.
Bass herself seems to think she should probably do some damage control as well.
She was forced to clarify on NBC News Monday that, despite all her friendly comments about Cuba’s Fidel Castro and her visits to his oppressed socialist country, she’s still a Democrat.
“I’m not a socialist. I’m not a communist. I’ve belonged to one party my entire life and that’s the Democratic Party and I’m a Christian,” she declared.
(It’s interesting that she seems to admit that socialism and communism are not actually compatible with Christianity and the Democratic Party, which is probably news to the likes of “The Squad.”)
Just the News notes:
Democrats have raised concerns that Bass’ words and actions regarding Cuba and Castro could hurt their efforts to win the Cuban-American vote in November, especially in swing state Florida.
Bass also addressed her coziness towards communism on Sunday on NBC, suggesting that she regretted the remarks she made about Fidel Castro four years ago.
On “Fox News Sunday,” she said that she understands “an awful lot more now” than she did in the 1970s, and that “the Castro regime did not have the same freedoms we do,” according to The Hill.
She only figured this out in the last four years?!
Just the News also notes that:
California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris and former national security advisor Susan Rice are among those also considered top vice presidential contenders. Biden is expected to make a decision within the next two weeks.
