Communist Party Leader Avakian Endorses Biden

Communist Party Leader Avakian Endorses Biden

August 4, 2020

In a statement released on Saturday, Robert Avakian, founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, announced his support for Democrat candidate Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.

“[I]f, in spite of mass protest demanding the removal of the Trump/Pence regime, this regime remains in power when it is time for voting,” wrote Avakian, then “using all appropriate means to work for the removal of this regime must include voting against Trump.”

Of course, Avakian still considers Biden and the Democrat Party “representatives and instruments of this exploitative, oppressive, and literally murderous system of capitalism-imperialism… Biden is not ‘better’ than Trump, in any meaningful way — except that he is not Trump and is not part of the move to consolidate and enforce fascist rule, with everything that means.”

Even a less-than-full-throated endorsement from the Communist Party still speaks volumes about which candidate stands for far-left government control, and which stands for freedom.
