Bernie has lost his position as the head of a progressive movement…he did that the minute he endorsed Clinton and quickly on his coat tails was Warren….all in the name of unity……balderdash….
Millennials come out hard for Bernie….and if the establishment thinks that these endorsements will appease these voters in the name of unity….then I do believe they are mistaken.
There was a hard campaign to discredit Bernie by the neolibs, mostly Clinton supporters who masqueraded as media pundits….but they may have played a dangerous game with these voters….
We have been told a story about the presidential candidacy of Senator Bernie Sanders, a story perpetuated almost exclusively by centrist Democrats vehemently opposed to his progressive agenda.
This story has many variants, but each features a central component: The Sanders campaign, the narrative goes, is merely masquerading as an ambitious political revolt dedicated to improving the material conditions of the public. In reality, contrary to its facade of progressivism, the Sanders campaign has largely served as a vehicle through which angry white males can freely express their fury at the expense of Hillary Clinton, President Obama, and the rest of the liberal political class.
These voters may well look for an alternative and I do not mean the Trump camp…..
After decades of silence the young have found their voice….they just need to keep shouting….do not them wear you down…..a better world is possible.
