The radically liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has spoken out to demand that Joe Biden submit to the radical left, assuming he takes office in January.
In a lengthy letter posted to Facebook, Moore called on Biden to ditch centrism and embrace the progressive left by doing things like abolishing the Electoral college and enacting universal health care.
He also urged Biden to cater to the voters under the age of 35 who have come to love socialism:
“They [centrists] think because Trump got 70 million votes the Democrats should reject Black Lives Matter, AOC, and anything that vaguely sounds like socialism — at a time when the majority of our citizens under the age of 35, according to most polls, prefer the idea of democratic socialism over the greed of modern-day capitalism.
Why risk losing them? We need to listen to and understand why they feel this way. They’ve been saddled with crushing student debt and we’ve handed them a planet In the middle of its 6th extinction event as their future. You and Barack introduced them to the benefits of democratic socialism by letting them stay on their parents health insurance until they’re 26! The result: They just set a record by coming out and voting for you in the largest youth numbers ever.”

Moore wants Biden to charge into office “like FDR on steroids,” and to avoid being like Barack Obama, who the filmmaker said “wanted everyone to get along. He was willing to compromise on anything.”
Abolishing the Electoral College is also high on Moore’s list as something that Biden needs to do.
“You need to sign executive orders and cajole, demand and shame Congress into action,” he wrote. “And GO BIG! Eliminate the Electoral College through the National Popular Vote Act! DONE!”
Moore then demanded that Biden push through universal healthcare.
“Health Care is a human right and every American must be covered,” he wrote. “You MUST create a health system like every other industrial democracy — one backed by the government, not by the whims of the boss where you work or the pandemic that has shut him or her down. This is just plain common sense.”
Perhaps the most disturbing part of Moore’s letter comes when he indicates that he believes that anything that helped President Donald Trump needs to be eliminated.
“We are all eager to join with you [Biden] to repair the damage done to our country,” the filmmaker wrote, “and to eliminate that about our society and our politics which gave us Donald Trump in the first place.”
