Long before the COVID-19 outbreak, Bernie Sanders watched the Democratic Party sabotage his campaign. The liberal elite worked overtime in the early months of the year to ensure Sanders would not be their nominee. But now that it looks more and more likely that Biden would get the nom, Bernie’s supporters are getting angry. And they’ve made a serious vow.
You really have to feel bad for Bernie Sanders. Not bad enough to support him. But just think about this guy. He jumped on board the Democratic Party in 2016 to run for president. In a sea of stooges, swamp dwellers, and lobbyist puppets, Bernie was promising to be a president that cared for the little guys. And the party went with Hillary Clinton—the queen of the swamp.
Then comes 2020—another chance for the (aging) socialist to make his mark. Once again, he joined the Democratic Party to earn their nomination. As many poseurs drop out of the race, it looks like Sanders would score the nomination, finally. But at the eleventh hour, the establishment backed Sleepy Joe Biden. And it seems Bernie’s chances are about to be snuffed out again.
Hey, it’s mostly his fault. Sanders is a radical, left-wing socialist who only joined the party to boost his chances at winning (most of the time, he’s an Independent). His entire agenda was to drag the center-left party into the cold reaches of the left-wing. It might have worked, given the Democrats’ disgusted for Donald Trump. But even then, Bernie has been unwilling (or unable) to actually fight his liberal rivals aggressively.
He thought all he had to do was hammer Trump. He didn’t count on the Democrats turning on him. Even though they did that four years ago!
Now, with defeating looming close, Sanders’ own people refuse to give up the fight. And they’re vowing something if he does lose.
Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) hardcore supporters say that, despite assurances from the Democratic National Committee that left-leaning voters will fall in line behind the likely Democratic presidential nominee, they’re ready to “resist” casting a ballot for former Vice President Joe Biden, “even if that means handing [President Donald] Trump a second term”…
Sanders’ supporters believe the former Veep’s remarkable comeback from near complete obscurity was orchestrated by Democratic powers-that-be and that powerful “moderates” are pressing Sanders out of competition for the nod…
“We will never – NEVER boost or support Joe Biden or defend his abysmal record and terrible policy positions,” one progressive activist told the New York Post. “We will tell people, as we always have, to vote their conscience and to make decisions based on the interests of all the world’s oppressed people … I do expect a massive exodus from the Democratic Party.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Now, let’s get real here. Bernie’s supporters have always been the most melodramatic, unhinged, and out-of-touch voters in the liberal base. While his most diehard people might abandon the left if Biden is elected, that might not represent the entire party.
But don’t be fooled. Millions of Americans are watching Bernie get the shaft—again. They were hoping this socialist would provide for them free health care, college tuition, and all sorts of things. Those hopes are being dashed as the liberal elite give the nomination to Biden. What would you do?
There might be a fairly large group of leftists who choose to sit out this November. Or, out of spite, vote for Donald Trump instead. Hey, these aren’t just liberal pawns who will vote for anyone with a “D” at the end of his name. These are passionate “Bernie bros” who believe the party stole the nomination from their guy, twice.
You don’t mess with people like that. And you don’t try to bully them into voting for a tired, confused old man unsuited to lead.
But will Bernie bros make good on their threats? I guess we’ll find out.
