Nobody Wants It

“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” “He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”

“It’s not only him, but also the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women,” Clinton said, before suggesting that Sanders himself was complicit in promoting those voices. Sanders denied telling Elizabeth Warren, his friend and longtime political ally, that he did not believe a woman could win the presidency. Warren has said publicly that Sanders told her this during a 2018 meeting. The back-and-forth between the campaigns and their supporters led to a contentious exchange between the candidates after a debate in Iowa. Clinton said Sanders’ conduct was part of a pattern.

“Then this argument about whether or not or when he did or didn’t say that a woman couldn’t be elected, it’s part of a pattern,” she told the THR. “If it were a one-off, you might say, ‘OK, fine.’ But he said I was unqualified. I had a lot more experience than he did, and got a lot more done than he had, but that was his attack on me. She continued, “I just think people need to pay attention because we want, hopefully, to elect a president who’s going to try to bring us together, and not either turn a blind eye, or actually reward the kind of insulting, attacking, demeaning, degrading behavior that we’ve seen from this current administration.”

Clinton’s assessment of Independent Progressive Bernie Sanders is spot on. It is a pattern. It is a pattern of opposing just to oppose, objecting just to object and of being argumentative for argumentative sake. It’s a pattern of unethical con artistry disguised as policy ethics. It’s a pattern that’s consistent with the continued movement of progressivism further toward authoritarianism, nihilism and radical ideology and the cult of personality over actual results. Progressivism is rapidly careening down the same broken path that Conservatism already lays broken and bashed in a hideous and gnarly crash site down at the bottom of. That ideology progressivism was once tied closely to. The Teddy Roosevelt Republican Progressive led new guard. Taking on the old guard just because. Reality is hitting progressive voters and candidates and outlets hard as they intentionally misread the room. The writing could not have been any more boldly imprinted on the wall of which party would be the future after Bernie Sanders lost another primary and Joe Biden received the most votes ever for a Presidential candidate to wipeout Donald Trump. The voters supposedly so excited about Bernie Sanders didn’t really exist. Sander’s support was a fleeting delusional internet created pop culture mirage. His rallies were similar to Donald Trump’s fringe groups of hateful misinformed agitators looking to own the libs by crawling out of the cracks and attending an over hyped white grievance rage against the machine just to rage concert whose main objective was thrashing the diverse Democratic Party and its’ very first female nominee so Republicans could win. Bernie has long trained others in his lucrative Ponzi scheme that relies on constant railing against the system and when that system works it means death to that type of brand. The system works better when Democrats are in office. This scheme needs Republicans who degrade and logjam the system on purpose, so it doesn’t work to make their wealth. It’s the same exact philosophy and technique used in the flailing news media business. The same business Bernie Sanders and his progressives are constantly feigning to be the victims of, yet they have carbon copied the same exact blueprint to deploy themselves. When things are better in the country news ratings go down. Creating a need for the news to be on constant doom spray mode to create false anxieties to replace real anxiety’s that were so lucrative to the news ratings and advertisers when Donald Trump and George W Bush were in office. Keeping citizens glued to their sets for constant reports worrying about the next shoe that was going to drop that was going to negatively affect their lives or anxiously awaiting the next ridiculous tabloid incident or pratfall that was sure to come. Things are better as a whole for the country and the rest of the world when Democrats are in office. The scheme works best when Republican and Democrat candidates are tangled up in tight races and in political battles because the news refuses to report on issues honestly instead choosing to do both sides journalism giving third party candidates the Bizarro Batman signal to start popping up like whack amole to repeat the entire process of how both parties are the same and a need for third parties and so the cycle continues repeatedly. The plan involves getting as much of the country lumping all Government in together as one entity instead of the intricate mechanism with many vital moving parts that it is. “It’s all the same, so just burn it all down” thereby suppressing the vote and keeping Republicans in office and hamstringing Democrats from making progress so they can continue protesting that Democrats are the same and ineffective and that it’s really just the system. When in actuality it’s their system that is at fault. Their system built to keep the system from working. The future of America is the Democratic party. When you talk about rights, freedoms, diversity, inclusion, environmentalism, holding corporations accountable, income equality, money out of politics and for the people by the people that’s who we’re talking about. That is who is going to lead the charge. Now and In the future. Not a bunch of people who have long voted Republican, protested by voting for ludicrous third-party candidates or haven’t concerned themselves with the problems in America enough up until this point enough to even have bothered voting at all and want to continue the charade that lunatics are the future of running the asylum. The drug of Trump has caused people to come off of their high and now sobriety has set in. It’s a high that they now keep trying to use Joe Biden as a replacement to reach but, as alcoholics and drug addicts can surely attest, they’ll never reach that same high again. Methadone is only a good replacement for Heroin in the margins for a very short while just as a vital tool with the ultimate goal being to ween addicts off of it completely and safely. Replacing Trump with Biden would be like trying to replace Heroin with applesauce. Trump Supporting and using Trump as a threat doesn’t provide the high or even the buzz that it provided people in 2016–2020. Instead of “saying no to drugs”, “find a way to get back on the drugs” has been the point of advice people have been handing out nowadays. But it’s a drug and a high they just simply cannot provide anymore. Nobody wants it.
