How badly does Senator Bernie Sanders want his gang of 9/11 Truthers, Hamas supporters, and Marxists to be able to write the Democrat platform? If New Yorkers have to die and the pandemic has to worsen (with all the economic consequences thereof) so he can make sure the Green New Deal, hatred for Israel, and the destruction of Medicare are in the platform, he’ll do it.
New York officials canceled the state’s Democratic presidential primary on Monday, calling the vote a beauty contest that the state can ill afford in the face of the coronavirus epidemic.
The move by Democrats on the New York State Board of Elections followed the decision by Senator Bernie Sanders to concede the Democratic presidential nomination to former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., rendering the primary unnecessary.
Supporters of Mr. Sanders had mounted an email and phone campaign to pressure the two Democratic members of the Board of Elections to keep Mr. Sanders on the ballot and hold a presidential primary, allowing Sanders backers to amass delegates to the Democratic National Convention where they could wield influence over the party platform.
In a letter to the board on Sunday, Mr. Sanders’s campaign had urged the board to keep him on the ballot and hold a primary in the interest of party unity, and the Sanders-aligned group Our Revolution had cautioned against the presidential primary’s cancellation.
As another great socialist once said, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.
Is Bernie Sanders angling for a scenario in which Biden drops out? Maybe. But the bottom line is he wants control over the Dem platform and will kill as many people as he has to. Including his own Marxist supporters.
