Things just got real for former Vice President Joe Biden his picks for cabinet positions are causing a fracture in the Democrat party.
The media is keeping it real quiet but the base of the party is not happy with Joe Biden’s picks. Leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement are speaking out against his decision to nominate former Mayor Pete Buttigieg for Secretary of Transportation.
Mayor @PeteButtigieg is a leader, patriot, and problem-solver. He speaks to the best of who we are as a nation.
I am nominating him for Secretary of Transportation because he’s equipped to take on the challenges at the intersection of jobs, infrastructure, equity, and climate.

Buttigieg was seen as an elitist in his community and was often at odds with minority leaders. The South Bend mayor came under attack when he demoted the city’s first black police chief after a black man was killed due to a police-involved shooting.
His attempts to increase his support with the black community have been seen as pandering and for some reason, he always tried to overstate the support he was receiving from the black community.
Earlier this week, South Bend Black Lives Matter leader Jordan Geiger said, “[W]e urge the rejection of our former mayor Pete Buttigieg, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Rhode Island, Governor Gina Raimondo for Transportation Secretary or any other cabinet position.”

It’s not just Black Lives Matter going after the Democrat establishment.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is also calling her party out as well.
“I do think we need new leadership in the Democratic Party,” Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said. “I think one of the things that I have struggled with, I think that a lot of people struggle with, is the internal dynamics of the House has made it such that there [are] very little options for succession.”
“My concern — and I acknowledge this as a failing, as something that we need to sort out — is that there isn’t a plan,” she said. “How do we fill that vacuum? Because if you create that vacuum, there are so many nefarious forces at play to fill that vacuum with something even worse. And so, the actual sad state of affairs is that there are folks more conservative than even they are willing to kind of fill that void.”
One of the many things President Trump exposed was the “establishment,” even people like AOC who detest the President admit that.
Joe Biden is hoping that he is going to be able to take power in January install the old guard, use the media to smooth things over, and put everything back in the box.
That’s not going to happen.
Americans remember Pelosi telling everyone to “come to Chinatown” on the eve of the pandemic, we remember them saying a vaccine by the end of the year was impossible, we remember them violating their own coronavirus restrictions, and we are watching the establishment pass a COVID relief bill that does nothing for individuals forced to live under draconian Democrat rule.
BREAKING: @DailyPoster obtained a draft of the bipartisan bill that:
1) gives legal immunity to corporate execs who kill workers
2) limits the 1964 Civil Rights Act
3) empowers the Attorney General to punish workers & customers who sue corporations https://t.co/kh2wW183ic

Things never go back in the box right once everything is taken out.
