Broward Socialists: Anarchists, Good. Joe Biden, Bad.

Think the radicals and socialists are voting for Joe Biden this November? Think again. The Broward Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) are not happy with “Sleepy Joe” for remarks he made today in Delaware. While he seemed uninformed about the cause of the rioting in Portland, Joe Biden drew a distinction between protestors and those setting fires at the Federal Courthouse in Portland.

Biden said, “[T]here is no place for violence and destruction of property. Peaceful protestors should be protected and arsonists and anarchists should be prosecuted.”

Well, such common sense did not play well with the Broward DSA.

On Twitter, the Broward DSA let its hammer and sickle flag fly. They wrote:

Calling for anarchists to be prosecuted is unacceptable. Anarchists have been unfairly persecuted for over 100 years in this country, and it is extremely concerning that both major candidates for the presidency want to lock them up. Many anarchists are not violent, and instead are committed to building a better world through mutual aid, social justice, and more. Anarchism is not an inherently dangerous ideology, unlike fascism or white supremacy. Why doesn’t Joe Biden call for them to be prosecuted?

So what, you say? Who cares what a few fringe socialists think about Joe Biden?

When they’re not defending anarchists attacking Federal agents and reading books by Stalin and Mao, the Broward DSA is part of the organizers behind the Black Lives Matter protests in South Florida.

Last month, REDBROWARD revealed the Broward DSA, Broward Black Lives Matter and the Broward Dream Defenders formed the Black Lives Matter Alliance Broward. The alliance has organized numerous protests since 2016 across Broward. Jasmen Roger-Shaw, a candidate for the Florida House of Representatives, is one of the leaders of the Alliance. The groups have endorsed radical candidates such as Broward State Attorney candidate Joe Kimok. Alliance members teamed with Broward Democrats to host Zoom forums featuring leading candidates from both parties.

Did none of the candidates for State Attorney or Sheriff bother to research these groups?

Do these candidates know a major component of this alliance has no problem with anarchists roaming the streets of Broward?

Well, they do now.
