So I recently had something interesting occur. I said Bernie Sanders was the strongest person democrats could run for the 2020 election. I was met with a few responses that I didn’t expect. So I pushed them, why don’t you support bernie (wasn’t answer), then I asserted a few claims. Those claims weren’t met with much resistance, instead the person started talking about the AG being fired. After just trying to grasp my head around how Sessions being fired relates to Bernie Sander’s pushing the democratic party left and having universal healthcare in the national conversation. Needless to say, I was blocked on twitter by someone who doesn’t support bernie, yet is a democrat. Now I’ve dealt with this sort of thing before, but it really opens up a serious point that many people don’t get. The democratic party did it’s absolute best to silence Bernie and alongside corporate media to dismiss him. Amazingly, he managed to push the entire party left. He got things like universal healthcare to be apart of the conversation. Even Obama has recently went on proposing it, and even went as far as to make an argument for why we’ll need universal basic income. It’s amazing how far left a single candidate pushed the entire party.
But that’s not what many democrats care about. Many democrats are just as ignorant as Trump supporters. Emotional, irrational, and in many ways completely delusional. Beto just fucking lost to Ted fucking Cruz and people want him to run as president. People actually WANT hillary clinton to run again, It’s mind boggling, the most irritating thing I’ve ever had to hear in my life. We’re going to lose 2020 if the average democrat can’t get it through their thick skull that what they hear on CNN, MSNBC, or on the “morning joe” isn’t everything. The reason why people don’t support Bernie specifically these dems, is because they fell in line with corporate agenda that the media and party have projected. They dismissed and assaulted Bernie non-stop, now there are many dems still who are stuck in that 2016 mindset that Hillary is somehow the best option for the Party. They honestly believe Bernie Sanders costed Hillary the election, and not the other way around. And when pushed on the substance, they break down like trump supporters refusing to change position.
How do we fix this, what do we do. Or am I the delusional one for thinking Hillary and Beto are weak candidates that can’t hold a candle to Donald Trump’s campaigning. Trump would absolutely annihilate both of them. Any thoughts on this?
