Yes, we need an FDR, and all we got is a tin-pot Mussolini.
He’s a much better speaker than Mussolini clearly, he just told people to inject bleach and they did it.
Bernie Sanders is the only hope
伯尼 · 桑德斯是唯一的希望
Trump is the new Hoover
Hoover: "Prosperity is just around the corner."
Trump: "The virus will go away without a vaccine."
Hoover at his worst was 1000x more competent than Trump.
And I suspect that Hoover was a fine human being in a bad situation. Trump and most of the billionaire class would like to return the times of Hoover.
Hoover saved millions of lives in Belgium and the Soviet Union with his relief programs. He could not, however, overcome the idea that the government shouldn't intervene in the market. He was simply ill equipped for the combination of an ecological and economic disaster. He was not a bad person.
Biden is a placeholder until the Democrats can figure out what they want to be and can find some fresh talent to run for office. Everyone has either been very old or very lackluster. Biden just has to replace RBG, secure the elections, sign things from a Dem congress and not screw up so Dems can win another election.
Democrats have plenty of fresh talent. That isn’t the problem. The problem is that party donors and party leadership are at odds with the progressive wing of the party, and seem to be doing everything they can to handicap them.
Thanks in part to media misinformation, from the like of the Washington post.
I find it hilarious that they don't even mention Bernie Sanders. Sure he's not the nominee, but he's very similar to FDR in his policies. You'd have thought that he'd have been referenced at least in passing.
Biden doesn't support the Green NEW DEAL, it's one of Sander's major priorities. They argue against Trump not being FDR, yet also don't mention that Biden is an incrementalist.
I regret that I have but one upvote to give.
There were A LOT of wildcat strikes (not organized by unions; spontaneous) that gave FDR mandate and leverage to do what he did.
We need an FDR, yes, but we also need to, as workers, fight for ourselves.
welp, sounds like a violent, organized working class is incoming.
No, but Biden would at least handle this crisis seriously
We need an FDR.
Agree wholeheartedly, but for 2020 we gotta work with what we got
We got multiple new FDR’s though and we’re cheated out of them.
The Roosevelts were among the wealthiest and most power families in New York and America. FDRs grandfather was the founder of the Bank of New York. He grew up as a trust fund kid and was tremendously wealthy. His branch was a minor branch of the family too. The main Oyster Bay Roosevelts included prominent Revolutionary War hero’s and officers, the founder of Chemical Bank, Bishops, Mayors of New York, Senators, Governors, state reps, academics, etc. Many of the Oyster Bay Roosevelts married into other prominent and powerful finance and political families of the times such as the Schuylers, Wadsworths, and Grants. Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, FDR’s wife, was one of the very power and even more ridiculously wealthy Oyster Bay Roosevelts.
Oligarchs? Most definitely.
If only there was a candidate with almost the exact same policies as FDR that can help us during these troubling times.
Trump is barely a viable human being let alone FDR.
America needs a new FDR
closest thing to that would've been Bernie. but Americans voted against him because "muh Socializm".
Right Wing Corporate propaganda has eliminated the possibility of us having another FDR.
It’s very very very important to keep noting Bernie didn’t lose because of policy. His was by far the best
Bernie lost because he was trying to get the Democratic nomination while running against the Democratic Party.
Half the Democratic Party is against the Democratic Party. We need a new separate party for actual progressives.
Yep. Independents can't run for an election against candidates that are party insiders without a massive landslide. It only happens when there is no one else to contest the election against the GOP or third parties.
And as we can see in the case of the Presidential primary, they are perfectly happy to just let people hop in so they're not the guy who says he'll destroy their way of controlling the country.
Of course, Bernie didn't do himself any favors by continually calling himself a democratic socialist when his policies are not that.
Unfortunately America would first have to go through a true depression. No bailouts etc, let the free markets loose.
The only thing trump took from FDR was the lowest thing he did, internment camps.
Trump has all of the weakness and flaws of every president and not a single good aspect of any of them.
Reagans pandering, rhetoric, his mental decline.
W Bush's inexperience and incompetence.
JFK / Clintons lust
Nixon's paranoia and delusions
Every single flaw, if the previous president had it is on display in trump and he possesses none of any good they had. It's really messed up how bad, unqualified and downright crazy this orange mountain of shit is.
There’s this guy called Bernie Sanders that has tried twice to take that role and the political establishment and corporate media have done their best to prevent that from happening, so here we are.
And to be fair, neither is Biden.
The DNC will never nominate an FDR, unfortunately.
Y'all need to learn what the DNC is. Voters decided the outcome of the primary.
Eh, true but the DNC does have major influence in various aspects that affect how people vote and which people vote, and the DNC has figurative dirt on their hands in alot of those regards.
Examples include, telling people it was safe to vote in a pandemic when it was most certainly not, coercing moderate candidates to drop out and endorse Biden just before super Tuesday, giving moderate voters only one choice( I honestly don't know why moderate voters are ok with this. They could have had buttigeg? Or klobuchar or anyone who is miles better than Biden. Biden was forced on to moderates just as much as he was forced on to progressives.)
Point is, it's true that more people voted for Biden than for Bernie, but that wouldn't be the case if the Democrats hadn't fucked around. The primary results are not an accurate reflection of the will of the people.
The primary results are not an accurate reflection of the will of the people.
Actually, they are. The cold, hard truth is Sanders just isn't as popular in real life as he is on twitter and reddit.
Keep in mind the distinction between the will of "the people" and the will of "the voters". All voters are people but not all people are voters.
The democratic party is a right-wing party, so it makes sense they only want to anoint right-wing candidates.
Yeah, and his name was Bernie Sanders. And you very wise people rejected him. Twice. And acted like a bunch of smug idiots on top of it.
So no, America doesn't need a new FDR. Continuing to get fucked by the top 1% is what America needs. And quite frankly deserves.
Here's hoping Andrew Yang, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren get positions in Biden's administration if/when he wins. I'm for delegating/abolishing many Cabinet departments and making a few others independent agencies, but, for now, Yang, Sanders, and Warren would be great department heads.
Everyone loves FDR and Nordic Socialism until someone actually proposes doing it.
Bernie Sanders is our FDR
伯尼 · 桑德斯就是我们的罗斯福
Uh yeah Washington Post, we know.
Bernie was the modern day FDR. We failed.
We’re not even addressing the lack of ability in the country to manufacture anything.
Real manufacturing output is at some of its highest levels in the last decade or so. There was a loss due to 2008, but it had mostly recovered by now. What the US produces is mostly capital-intensive products like airplanes, cars, chemicals, manufacturing equipment, etc.
They wouldn't let Bernie win the nomination. So we get a nice ineffectual leader vs a reality show idiot that blew 400 million dollars that his father left him.
The only way trump could be fdr is if he serves more than 2 terms
No he is not. Trump is the new Mussolini or Pol Pot.
And there’s a good chance we will have to endure Trump for another five years or perhaps indefinitely because his cult STILL believes he’s doing a good job.
We’re about to see what America would have been like without the New Deal.
Trump is not fit to shine the shoes of FDR. He would even screw that up.
So... Make America Great like 1933 Again
Any sane president would have tried to use this great tragedy and tried to turn it into an opportunity to fix structural problems - massive infrastructure bill, social safety net which both parties could agree to, new green energy bill, strengthen CDC for future outbreaks, localized manufacturing, improved healthcare (insurance, cost, or availability), improve housing safety, shoot even a bill to force consolidation of streaming services would have been good. But nope - quite literally nothing at all. Not one single thing worth mentioning will be gained or done by this useless administration.
I was thinking about this last night, if we end up with another New Deal type program under a Democrat - I hope they name it the MAGA Act. It’s just perfect in so many ways.
我昨晚在想，如果最后我们在民主党人的领导下实施另一个类似新政的计划，我希望他们把它命名为 MAGA 法案。它在很多方面都很完美。
America needs a MLK without the whole assassination part.
FDR served 4 terms
The people are living in the past. We need to move forward, not looking back.
The morally and ethically bankrupt Trump would have sided with Hitler
I mean, isn't that obvious to everyone? Who in the hell ever compared FDR to Trump?
Neither is Biden. Yet we have to pick between the two. What a shit selection.
Gonna be some tough years ahead for america.
We just need another world war like FDR had to get us out of this. Not more schools, hospital and dams. 🤔
我们只是需要另一场像罗斯福那样的世界大战来帮助我们摆脱困境。 而不是更多的学校，医院和水坝。 🤔
“America needed a new FDR, But Americans pissed him away” seems like a more appropriate title
Too late. We had our chance to elect Bernie, who has similar policies as FDR, but we fucked up, and the Washington Post (together with the rest of the corporate media) helped destroy Bernie's campaign.
Really, Washington Post? REALLY!? GO FUCK YOURSELVES, WASHINGTON POST. FUCK. YOU.
You had an FDR, and you fuckbags spiked him at every fucking chance you had, you neoliberal-worshipping shitheads.
Trump is Hoover. Biden may not be FDR, but we're seeing leadership from Democrats on a scale not matched by Republicans.
I believe Bernie was FDR reincarnate and while he didn't get the chance to lead us, he definitely paved the way.
