Former rival Bernie Sanders bragged that Democrat candidate Joe Biden might be the most progressive President in modern times.
His comments come after camps for both men released a ‘progressive unity platform’ – a list of recommendations for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) prior to the party platform being adopted at the convention next month.
The paper, while avoiding such socialist phrases as ‘Green New Deal’ and ‘Medicare For All,’ states that it represents “a good policy blueprint that will move this country in a much-needed progressive direction.”
Despite the lack of their favorite phrases, the document does address the need to “right racist wrongs” and “reverse climate change.”
And Bernie is as pleased as punch about the whole thing.

Most Progressive Since FDR
In an interview with MSNBC Wednesday night, Sanders bragged that he had forced Biden to adopt policies that would make him the most far-left president in modern history.
“The compromise they came up with, if implemented, will make Biden the most progressive president since FDR,” Sanders announced. “It did not have, needless to say, everything that I wanted, everything that Biden wanted.”
Think about that for a moment.
How extreme is the Bernie/Squad wing of the Democrat party that they were able to yank Biden far enough to the left to make him the “most progressive president” and it still wasn’t everything their little socialist hearts desired?
As if that wasn’t enough, the ‘unity platform’ contains excerpts of Bernie’s platforms from his own site – word-for-word.
Today, Joe Biden’s unity task force released recommendations for the DNC platform that crib straight from Bernie Sanders’ radical agenda.
We found multiple instances of word-for-word copying from Bernie.

Biden Is Extreme
The Biden-Bernie unity tour comes just one day after the former Vice President aligned himself with radical Rep. Ilhan Omar on a ‘defund the police’ platform, and a few days after vowing to “transform” the country.
“We won’t just rebuild this nation — we’ll transform it,” Biden announced on Independence Day.
Other extreme positions in which Biden and Bernie’s Squad share commonality include:
- A federal ‘assault weapons’ ban, with Biden vowing to put gun-grabbing zealot Beto O’Rourke in charge of weapons reform.
- Seeks to cause “massive disruptions to private (health insurance) coverage.”
- Wants to implement the Green New Deal and supports jailing climate deniers.
- Free college.
And he offered this opinion on police officers in America…

We’ve been warning about this for some time now. Don’t fall into the media trap that Biden is harmless, or a moderate and wouldn’t be that bad should President Trump lose.
Listen to Bernie when he tells you this will be the most radical President you’ll ever see in your lifetime.
Joe Biden is simply the vessel the far left is using in their attempt to take over America.
