At the TPUSA Christofascist conference, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene described President Biden as the new torchbearer from FDR and LBJ’s New Deal and Great Society, as if this was a bad thing.
Lyndon B. Johnson is very similar to Joe Biden. How are they the same?
They’re both Democrat Socialists.
Lyndon B. Johnson was the majority leader in the Senate. Does that sound familiar?
He was Vice President to Kennedy. Joe was Vice President to Obama.
He was appointed as the president after JFK was assassinated, then he was elected.
His big socialist programs were the Great Society.
The Great Society were big government programs to address education, medical care, urban problems, rural poverty, transportation, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, and welfare, the Office of Economic Opportunity, and big labor and labor unions.
Now, LBJ had the Great Society, but Joe Biden had Build Back Better, and he still is working on it.
The largest public investment in social infrastructure and environmental programs that is actually finishing what FDR started that LBJ expanded on, and Joe Biden is attempting to complete, socialism.
What a fool.
The goal of Johnson’s Great Society was to attempt to promote education, expand highways, introduce Medicare, urban renewal, and help eliminate poverty. All of these policies emanated from President Kennedy’s New Frontier ideals. How those views, which have helped 98% of Americans, are now considered “destructive” by Evangelical Republicans is beyond me.
As Joan McCarter writes, Marjorie Taylor Greene’s weekend speech is a commercial for Biden reelection
“Greene is clearly no scholar, probably having gotten most of her history from Wikipedia, but she is hilariously and cluelessly making a very good case for reelecting Biden and Democrats. Putting Biden in league with LBJ and FDR—correctly, if he can actually complete his agenda—is all the motivation we need.”
By calling LBJ and FDR Socialists, the QAnon Klan mom continues to expose her ignorance. Unfortunately, the MAGA cult is just as ignorant about our history as she is.
UPDATE: The White House agrees with us: “Caught us. President Biden is working to make life easier for hardworking families.”
