It’s Over… But We Must Keep Fighting To Defeat The Democrat Elite

Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders Democratic Debate

As much as it pains me to say it, with this latest election blow, Bernie Sanders, short of an act of God, a fatal Biden heart attack, maybe? is not going to be the Democratic presidential candidate. The big money corporate interests, including the mainstream news media, i.e. CNN, MSNBC, et al are too powerful. Despite 70%+ of under 30s voting for Bernie, the overall turn out in that demographic is just 15% compared to 55% of voters aged 50+, who overwhelmingly vote for, safe option, Biden.

I am massively disappointed, before the first ‘Super Tuesday’, I was hopeful that Bernie could do it, become the nominee, against all odds. As I write this; Sanders has not suspended his campaign, but I feel it’s inevitable. I feel the youth are demoralized and will not make the effort to come out and vote in enough numbers to make a difference, even more so with the growing spread of the COVID-19 virus.

In my opinion, the DNC has massively put voters and polling station staff at risk, suggesting the state Democratic parties should push ahead with the primaries, against CDC warnings about gatherings of more than 50 people, due to the significant risk of Coronavirus, with the elderly being most at risk of contracting the deadly virus. If one person dies as a result of coming out to vote, Tom Perez and the DNC needs to be sued for wrongful death. Events are being canceled countrywide, yet Perez pushed ahead.

Honestly, Bernie, although not unelectable like the mainstream media kept on repeating, is just too nice. Sanders continued to refer to Biden as “my friend, Joe”, and never really went in for the kill. Despite this, mainstream media painted Sanders as the shouty, angry, rude, women-hating candidate, extending that description to the “Bernie Bros”, a moniker that the mainstream media invented, claiming that Bernie Sanders only appealed to young white men, a false claim that carried over from the 2016 election.

While the mainstream media simultaneously covered for Joe Biden’s lies about going on civil rights marches and rallies, attending black churches, and being arrested in South Africa trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison, during the apartheid era. Both these claims have been proven to be false. Given this, I’m truly baffled how Biden managed to get the lion’s share of the African American vote, but I digress.

I fear the potential for Medicare For All will be gone for at least 10 years, probably longer, after Sander’s second failure to get the Democratic nomination. According to many exit polls, between 60% and 70% of voters supported Medicare For All, yet, still cast a vote for Biden, a man who recently on MSNBC said that he would veto a Medicare For All Bill, if it made its way through the House and Senate.

Not to mention, the multiple times Biden has pushed for cuts for Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. He may have a (D) after his name, but he is a Republican-lite, reaching across the aisle and voting for GOP priorities. I cannot vote in 2020, due to not being a citizen at this time, and even if I could I would not vote for Biden, “vote blue, no matter who”, my arse, he needs to earn the progressive vote!

Something he clearly won’t do, he has already pissed off the millennial age group, with his “give me a break” comments in response to the struggles the youth of the nation is experiencing, massive student loan debt, credit card debt and the inability to find affordable housing in the area they reside.

As much as I would like to see Bernie stay in the race right up to the convention, to be a thorn in the side of the Democratic establishment. Bernie still has plenty of financial support from everyday Americans to make it happen. The chances of overturning Biden’s delegate lead, and the COVID-19 virus spreading like wildfire, makes it something that should not happen, if for no other reason than to protect Americans, as clearly the DNC don’t give a fuck about Americans as long as they achieve their political goals.

As disappointed as I am, the progressive movement must not be allowed to die, we have to keep fighting, try to get progressive candidates into local, state and federal Houses and Senates. It will take time, significant time, but we can get there, creating a government that actually represents the people of the United States, not big money interests. As the older generation dies off, the younger, more progressive generations will become the majority, then we can affect real change, no more incrementalism. But, I fear that may be too late, with the planet being at a tipping point when it comes to climate change.

Oh, BTW, the Joe Biden heart attack comment in the opening paragraph was tongue in cheek!
