Earlier this morning, former Vice President Joe Biden announced his candidacy for the president of the United States.

Now, Biden may think that he is presidential material, but apparently, not all Democrats share this view.

Justice Democrats on “Joe 2020”

Shortly after Biden’s announcement via an online video, the Justice Democrats weighed in. They slammed the former vice president as a “centrist” who is “out-of-touch” with the Democrat Party and will compromise the Democrats’ efforts to defeat Trump.

It continues…

Finally, the Justice Democrats concluding their scathing criticism of Biden with one last tweet:

So, in a nutshell, the Justice Democrats don’t think that Biden is far-left enough for their liking. This is interesting for a series of reasons.

Democrats and Far-Leftism

Since the past year, Democrats have faced censure for what many Americans view as extremism within their party. In many regards, Democrats brought this upon themselves by championing for radical policies which stand virtually no chance of garnering bipartisan support.

Some examples of the radical policies in question include ending private healthcare, doing away with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and more. There exists a real debate about whether or not going as far left as possible is the best route to beating President Trump in 2020.

Thus far, the former vice president has not publically responded to the Justice Democrats. However, judging from his announcement video, Biden seems confident in his ability to take on President Trump in 2020. This is in spite of the fact that the former vice president has unsuccessfully attempted to become president twice before; his failed bids occurred during the 1988 presidential election and the 2008 presidential election.

Biden will face many other eager Democrats in the primary election. Various potential contenders are more aligned with the ideals of the Justice Democrats. Candidates such as Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and others have supported Medicare-for-All, abolishing ICE and even looking into slavery reparations.

While many Americans view a lot of what progressives stand for as radical or extreme, this appears to be what Justice Democrats are hoping for in the Democrat nominee.
