IF You Are One of the People Who Is Rooting for Biden and Harris to “Unite the Country”… Here’s 3 Things to Think About:

The way [Biden and Harris] will try to “unite the country”—in line with the interests and requirements of this system of capitalism-imperialism—is something that no decent person should want, or be part of.


As people went into the streets in righteous outrage against the police murder of Daunte Wright and other wanton pig murders and were once again met with violent police response, Biden said, “Peaceful protest is understandable. And the fact is that we do know that the anger, pain and trauma that exists in the black community in that environment is real, serious and consequential. But that does not justify violence.” (emphasis added)

First of all, is this righteous? Why doesn’t Biden go tell that shit to the police, who is causing all this violence in the first place ( see "As the Verdict in the Murder of George Floyd Draws Close… A System on Trial Whose Time Is Up—We Need to Organize NOW for an Actual Revolution!")! This is just another threat from Biden for more violence by the murderous forces of “law and order”! When the people RIGHTEOUSLY stand up, as they did again this week, all they get is more violence from these pigs—along with sermons, scolding and empty promises from politicians.  Then, when the promises wear thin, Biden and others essentially threaten people, this time out of fear of what they might do if Derek Chauvin walks free next week.

Is this—Biden’s scolding of righteous protest against police murder and institutionalized racism—what you want and uphold?

Yes, it goes on ... and on ... and on. Yet further confirmation—as if further evidence were needed—of the profound truth that we need Revolution—Nothing Less!

2 As Biden announced the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by later this year, he said of the U.S. invasion in 2001 and the war since then, “Our objective was clear. The cause was just.”


As our article in this issue makes clear, this was a brutal war of revenge-domination—a war designed both to send a message to the world that anyone who crosses the U.S. will suffer violence against them hundreds and thousands of times worse and to launch a much more militarily direct domination of the Middle East and Central Asia, with hundreds of thousands killed, millions displaced as refugees and the society destroyed. The U.S. carried out torture and drone strikes over and over against innocent people, including wedding parties, and in the end set up the masses for an even worse domination by Islamic fundamentalists. 

Biden actually had the gall, in the face of this reality—and everything the US and its military has done around the world, in Vietnam and in Iraq, in El Salvador and in Indonesia—to say that “...we’re absolutely united in our respect and support for the valor, courage, and integrity of the women and men of the United States Armed Forces who served. I’m immensely grateful for the bravery and backbone that they have shown through nearly two decades of combat deployments. We as a nation are forever indebted to them and to their families. ...”

Is this—Biden’s valorization of U.S. and its military, its wars, torture and cruelty—what you want and uphold?

The Declaration and Call To Get Organized For A Real Revolution hits with the REAL reality:

The military of this country is not carrying out an “honorable service”—and it is not some “bad ass” force that people should respect. It is doing the same thing around the world, on a massive scale, that the police are doing here: carrying out the cowardly killing and terrorizing of people in the service of the biggest oppressors in the world, the rulers of this country. And it is a major cause of the destruction of the environment.

3 This past week Biden put forward his proposal for how many refugees the U.S. should accept in the coming year—many of whom are fleeing from the wars, climate disasters and other mayhem wreaked by America around the world.

And how many did he propose? 15,000—the exact same historically low figure put forward by the fascist Trump!

Now Biden promises to raise that quota—after howls of outrage even from Democratic Party politicians.

Is this—a slightly modified and sanitized version of Trumpism on the border—what you want?

Let’s look at why people come here. Go here.

As Bob Avakian has written:

There is no question that many of the policies of the Biden/Harris administration will be different than the blatant atrocities of the Trump/Pence regime, and things will definitely “feel different” with Biden and Harris, but the way they will try to “unite the country”—in line with the interests and requirements of this system of capitalism-imperialism—is something that no decent person should want, or be part of. (From New Year’s Statement by Bob Avakian: A New Year, The Urgent Need For A Radically New World—For The Emancipation Of All Humanity)

DONATE to the revolution.

From the genocide in Gaza, to the growing threat of world war between nuclear powers, to escalating environmental devastation… the capitalist-imperialist system ruling over us is a horror for billions around the world and is tearing up the fabric of life on earth. Now the all-out battle within the U.S. ruling class, between fascist Republicans and war criminal Democrats, is coming to a head—likely during, or before, the coming elections—ripping society apart unlike anything since the Civil War.

Bob Avakian (BA), revolutionary leader and author of the new communism, has developed a strategy to prepare for and make revolution. He’s scientifically analyzed that this is a rare time when an actual revolution has become more possible, and has laid out the sweeping vision, solid foundation and concrete blueprint for “what comes next,” in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America.

The website follows and applies that leadership and is essential to all this. We post new materials from BA and curate his whole body of work. We apply the science he’s developed to analyze and expose every key event in society, every week. posts BA’s timely leadership for the revcoms (revolutionary communists), including his social media posts which break this down for people every week and sometimes more. We act as a guiding and connecting hub for the growing revcom movement nationwide: not just showing what’s being done, but going into what’s right and what’s wrong and rapidly learning—and recruiting new people into what has to be a rapidly growing force.

Put it this way: there will be no revolution unless this website not only “keeps going” but goes up to a whole different level!

So what should you give to make 2024 our year—a year of revolution?
Everything you possibly can!
