And to think the RCP was once the US allies of the Shining Path. Contra the Washington Times, I would argue that the fact that so many on the supposed “hard left” such as Bob Avakian, Angela Davis, and Bill Ayers have endorsed Biden out of Trump Derangement Syndrome most certainly does not indicate that Biden has somehow magically moved to the far left and become a revolutionary Marxist. What is means is that nearly all of the farce that passes for the “American Left” is a collection of weenies, chumps, losers, dumbasses, dumbfucks, and absolute fucking idiots. What it also means is that classical anarchists are absolutely correct when they refer to Marxists as merely the “left-wing of capital.” Seriously, Chairman Bob, is Sunsara’s pussy really that good?

For Bob Avakian, founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, this year’s election is actually an easy call: The need to stop President Trump is so overwhelming that he has no qualms about backing Democrat Joseph R. Biden.
The far left usually finds itself at election time grappling with tricky questions about lesser-of-two-evils, and fears of boosting what they see as a corrupt Democratic Party. But that’s not happening this year.
“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,” he said in an email to supporters Monday.
He continued: “To approach this election from the standpoint of which candidate is ‘better’ means failing to understand the truly profound stakes and potential consequences of what is involved. The fact is that there can be one — and only one — ‘good’ that can come out of this election: delivering a decisive defeat to Trump and the whole fascist regime.”
Compatriots, competitors and fellow travelers from America’s communist movement are coming to the same conclusion.
Angela Davis, who gained fame as a 1970s-era radical and was the Communist Party USA’s vice presidential nominee in the 1980 and 1984 elections, told RT in an interview last month that the left should pick Mr. Biden because he can be “most effectively pressured” into accepting their demands.
Indeed, some on the left say they’ve already seen that in Mr. Biden’s willingness to work with Sen. Bernard Sanders, who bills himself as a democratic socialist and was runner up for Democrats’ presidential nod.
