Leftists have renewed calls for President-elect Joe Biden and Democrats to enact an extremist agenda that includes adding states, padding the Supreme Court, and taking advantage of a narrowly divided Congress.

The push comes as Democratic Senate candidates Rafael Warnock and Jon Ossoff defeated incumbent GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, respectively, in a pair of run-off elections Tuesday.

Brian Fallon, the national press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign, wrote on Twitter, “Make DC a state. Restore the Voting Rights Act. Eliminate the filibuster. Reform the courts. Revive democracy.”

Left-wing activist Paige Wolf, meanwhile, was more aggressive.

Warning: Strong language

“Well I’M calling it. We got the f**king trifecta. Take no prisoners. Burn them to the ground. Kick that turtle shell straight to hell. Pack the courts. End the filibuster, Make DC and Puerto Rico and Guam all motherf**king states,” she wrote on her protected Twitter account, according to a screengrab posted by Ian Miles Cheong.

Also, Adam Jentleson, who was an aide to former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), added: “If Democrats win both Senate seats in GA, it’s going to be hard to explain why they should promptly re-empower McConnell by seeking small-ball deals with him instead of getting rid of the filibuster and passing Biden’s big, bold agenda. Biden has a mandate. Time to use it.”

Walter Bragman, another left-wing activist, noted: “Democrats will have complete control of the federal government for two full years. They can pack the court. They can end the wars. They can cut the (monthly) checks. They can guarantee healthcare. They can forgive student and medical debt. If they don’t, you know who to blame.

“They will have to employ the nuclear option and eliminate the filibuster,” he noted further. “But they can do it. And given the GOP’s willingness to throw traditions out the window for power, they should. Eliminate the filibuster, ram through huge relief for everyday people and ride it to 2022.”

Rep. Pramilla Jayapal (D-Wash.) cited the two Georgia victories in calling for “transformative change across America.”

“Recurring survival checks, union jobs that pay a living wage, guaranteed health care, racial justice, voting rights, immigration reform, climate action, repro justice, education, and MUCH more. It can’t wait!” Jayapal added.

“Trump has led his party over the precipice. First thing Democrats should do is eliminate the filibuster and get some real work done. Second thing they should do is grant statehood to Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia,” leftist activist July Roginsky noted.

Last week, The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board warned that Republicans needed to keep control of the Senate so the chamber would act as a bulwark against Democrats’ extreme left agenda.

“Some of our friends think Democrats couldn’t blow up the 60-vote legislative filibuster rule with a mere 50 votes. Their confidence hangs on West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, who says he supports the filibuster. But imagine the political and media pressure on Mr. Manchin if Republicans use the filibuster to block Joe Biden’s agenda. He’s always been a loyal party man when it really matters,” the board noted.

“…[I]f the filibuster goes, so do bipartisan restraints. Statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico become possible, with four new Senate seats to cement a Democratic majority. Mr. Biden’s aggressive union agenda has a chance, including overtime pay mandates and easier organizing of franchise chains,” the board continued.

“So do nationwide mandates for ballot harvesting and mail-in voting, a ban on arbitration in business contracts, price controls on drugs, huge subsidies for green energy and perhaps a carbon tax. We could go on.”
