BLM Issues Blunt Statement Opposing Major Biden Cabinet Pick

It seems that Biden’s centrism has already become an issue for the far left.

Joe Biden will certainly have his work cut out for him, should he take the White House in January.

First and foremost, the former Vice President will be taking the helm of a nation divided, with no clear cut path to bring the disparate political fragmentation back under control.  Not only are the left and the right quarreling precisely as the media has conditioned them to, but the two parties are themselves fracturing into impenetrable sects as well.

Biden, who ran as a moderate Democrat in order to snatch up centrist votes from Republicans who were turned off by President Trump’s bombastic behavior, is now feeling the wrath of the progressive left.

Leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement have come out against President-elect Joe Biden’s decision to nominate former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg for Secretary of Transportation, recalling his struggles with minority voters.

Biden announced Tuesday that Buttigieg was his choice for the transportation post — a plum position for a candidate who dropped out of the presidential race before Super Tuesday and endorsed the former vice president.

The group was unhappy, to say the least.

In a statement Tuesday, South Bend-based Black Lives Matter leader Jordan Geiger said: “[W]e urge the rejection of our former mayor Pete Buttigieg, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Rhode Island, Governor Gina Raimondo for Transportation Secretary or any other cabinet position.”

ABC’s Beatrice-Elizabeth Peterson noted that Black Lives Matter leaders have sought a meeting with Biden for more than a month but have not received an invitation.

Buttigieg became one of Biden’s most often-used surrogates in the media during the late stages of the 2020 campaign, appearing several times on Fox News to combat the network’s conservative lean.
