Biden slammed for letting “revolutionaries awake” dictate political agenda | World | News
Allister Heath, editor of the Sunday Telegraph, also claimed that these leftist ideologues pose a threat to Western democracy and capitalism – and could have a negative impact on the policies of the British government. The new US president has got off to a good start, issuing a series of executive orders while rolling out the vaccination program at record speed, as well as adopting his $ 1.9 trillion US bailout. In addition, Mr. Biden is now preparing to get Congress to approve his $ 2 trillion infrastructure bill, which has been dubbed the US Jobs Plan.
However, Mr Heath believes the US president has flattered the left-wing extremists in his party too much and that the consequences will be felt not only in America but also in the UK.
In an op-ed for the Daily Telegraph, he wrote: âBut while some of Biden’s decisions made sense, most weren’t.
âOut of weakness or lack of focus, Biden left too much influence to the radicals in his party.
“The consequences will be disastrous not only for America but also for Britain.”
Mr Heath claims that his party’s “awakened revolutionaries” have created a fused ideology out of “post-modernism, Marxism and Freudianism” that is “explosive and potentially fatal to Western democracy and capitalism”.
He said: “He sees free speech as a form of violence and assumes that anyone who disagrees is guilty of false conscience and as such deserves to be quashed as a dangerous heretic . “
Mr Heath is particularly worried that the left-wing economic policies of the Biden administration are having a negative impact on the UK economy.
He points to Mr Biden’s plans to raise corporate taxes in the United States from 21% to 28%, as well as the huge increase in government spending approved by Congress.

He added: âWe will also feel the heat of Biden’s increased spending.
âA lot of it isn’t really about infrastructure, but it will increase aggregate demand just as the economy rebounds after Covid.
âUS inflation and interest rates could rise, with a ripple effect on our own cost of borrowing: bad news for Rishi Sunak. “
