“We are winning the ideological battle,” Bernie Sanders announced Wednesday, but since he was 300 delegates behind, the 78-year-old said, “I am announcing the suspension of my campaign.” The real wonder is that anybody took Sanders seriously in the first place.
Sanders ran as a Democrat but called himself a “democratic socialist,” talking up nations such as Denmark. Trouble was, on his 1988 road trip, Bernie bypassed Denmark for the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Even then, the Communist regime’s murderous record was fully apparent to all but the willfully blind.
Stalin’s forced famines, purges and show trials were all chronicled in works such as The Great Terror, and in 1956 Soviet boss Nikita Khrushchev confirmed the millions of casualties. That had no effect on Bernie Sanders, a belch from the 1930s. His notion that “free” education and health care are “rights” comes straight from the 1936 Stalin Constitution. Just so millennials know, the USSR regarded freedom of speech and such as bourgeois formalities.
The Vermont socialist was also a big fan of Sado-Stalinist dictator Fidel Castro, who launched a literacy campaign, Sanders said, when he “came into office,” as though Castro had squeaked out an election victory. Sanders claimed to oppose “authoritarian” regimes, a term that would apply to Peronist Argentina, not totalitarian Communist nations such as Cuba and China. Sanders said it was unfair to say they were all bad, and reserved his harshest criticism for the United States, the nation in which he became a millionaire.
In the view of Bernie Sanders, some of the most loathsome regimes ever to exist are shining examples of social justice, human rights, and endless prosperity. On the other hand, this aging leftist, with not an atom of personality, was able to mount a campaign, win some primaries, and stay in the running until Wednesday. In the Democrat Party, as in Orwell’s English socialism (INGSOC), ignorance is strength.
Now the old commie has bailed, as CNN put it, “clearing Joe Biden’s path to the Democratic nomination and a showdown with President Donald Trump in November.” What could possibly go wrong? Couple things to consider here.
For eight years Joe Biden was vice president but POTUS 44, formerly known as Barry Soetoro, hasn’t exactly been in Biden’s corner. Even so, Biden overcame early losses and mounted a surge in recent primaries. He may be on top now, but hardly without issues.
Joe Biden, once the second-most-powerful man in the world, has entanglements in Ukraine and China that could prove troublesome, should they ever get the scrutiny they deserve. Beyond corruption issues, the serial plagiarist is now uncertain of his location at any given time.
In a recent debate, Joe Biden twice confused the coronavirus with the Ebola virus. Asked about Trump’s statement that the cure should not be worse than the disease, Biden said “we have to take care of the cure that will make the problem worse no matter what.” Bruce Bawer’s wonderful Biden inaugural address aside, the man is beyond satire, and he may have forgotten some recent history.
If the DNC had not rigged the process in Hillary Clinton’s favor, Bernie Sanders would have been the candidate in 2016. The former First Lady and Secretary of State had corruption issues galore, but POTUS 44 deployed deep state forces in the FBI and DOJ to keep her in the race. Clinton thought it would be a cakewalk, but Donald Trump beat her fair and square. Hillary then toured the world boasting of the places she “won,” and hinting at a comeback in 2020.
As Michael Goodwin sees it, “All the party has to do is call. Her bag is packed,” and her platform writes itself: “She didn’t really lose the 2016 election. Trump colluded with the Russians to deprive her of her civil right to be president. Anything else is just a Republican talking point and part of the vast right-wing conspiracy.”
Hillary was on board with the Russia hoax, the Ukraine hoax, and the impeachment bid. Like other Democrats, the former First Lady now deploys the coronavirus against President Trump.
On Monday, Clinton retweeted a Washington Post story that said the nation was “beset by denial and dysfunction as the coronavirus raged” under Trump, so “Replace this man in November.” As some might wonder, will Hillary Clinton and her DNC allies attempt to replace Joe Biden as the presumptive Democrat nominee?
As Christopher Anderson noted in American Evita: Hillary Clinton’s Path To Power, Hillary Clinton is a Saul Alinsky acolyte, and power is everything. When people get in her way she tends to shove them aside, or like Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster they depart alone under mysterious circumstances, the subject of endless conspiracy theories.
As he struggles to sort out the day, time, and location, Joe Biden may not grasp the seriousness of his position. The good news is, socialist Bernie Sanders has ended his campaign, clearing Joe’s path to the Democratic nomination and a showdown with President Donald Trump in November. As the president says, we’ll have to see what happens.
