AOC: Silencing Tara Reade Allegations Against Joe Biden is “Gaslighting

Earlier tonight, CBS News reported that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said it was legitimate to talk about Tara Reade and her allegations against Joe Biden. This makes AOC the first congressperson to acknowledge Tara Reade and her claims against Biden.

This is a brave stand to take, where AOC is suggesting we can’t be hypocritical and ignore stories when they affect our party. She also says this story shouldn’t be set aside because of the election.

In her words: “What you’re voicing is so legitimate and real. That’s why I find this kind of silencing of all dissent to be a form of gaslighting.”

When it comes to Joe Biden, New York Times abandons “Believe women”. By David Walsh. 15 April 2020. Former Vice President Joe Biden, the leading candidate for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, has been accused by a former staffer of sexually assaulting her. Tara Reade alleges the incident occurred in 1993 when Biden was a senator from Delaware. There were no witnesses, Reade never filed a complaint and the statute of limitations for such an offense, if it occurred, has long since expired. Reade told Newsweek that she went public with her claims in late March, according to the magazine, “to ensure that ‘powerful men’ are held to account”.

  2. The devastating economic fallout of COVID-19 is widening the already immoral levels of inequality that plague American society.

    That’s why we are deeply disturbed that Joe Biden is taking advice on the economic recovery from proud Milton Friedman fanboy Larry Summers.

    According to The Nation, “going back decades, Summers has opposed big stimulus spending, regulation of Wall Street, and pushes for economic equality.”

    Summers’ record supporting policies that have punished working people and rewarded corporate power is the last thing we need at this time of great economic crisis. Rush a donation now to help us keep up the pressure on Biden to cut all ties with Larry Summers immediately!

    Summers was prominent in the neoliberal push to repeal the Glass-Steagall protections that were instituted during the Great Depression and a major factor in the 2008 financial crisis.

    He also actively argued against relief that could have kept homeowners in their houses instead of being thrown out on the street with foreclosures.

    And late last year, he made a bizarre case against the wealth tax by disgustingly equating support for it with antisemitism.

    The bottom line is this: Larry Summers has spent his career arguing for policies that punish working people and exacerbate inequality.

    If Joe Biden is serious about helping ordinary Americans, he will stop listening to Larry Summers as soon as possible.

    Donate here to help us organize grassroots power to demand that Joe Biden stop taking advice from Larry Summers on the economic recovery.

    We’re in this together,

    The whole team at Our Revolution
