How Do We Know That Bernie Sanders Must Run and Win? By the Ridiculous and Blatant Disrespect Shown By The Democratic Party.

The ostrich with its head in the sand act of the Democratic Party has now reached epically absurd proportions.

No Democrats, looking the other way does not make the most popular senator in America simply disappear. Instead it makes you look awfully silly.

This disregard is also proof positive that Bernie Sanders must run for the Democratic nomination.

It is a very strange thing indeed when a political party's entire public agenda can be traced back to a single politician and that politician is never named. Not on MSNBC, not on CNN, not by any of the Democrats who populate those networks all day, not by any of the mainstream Democratic pundits. Is this supposed to be some sort of Sunshine of the Spotless Mind of politics?

Well, my memories are not erased. I remember 2016. I remember what happened and how important it was.

How important? So important that we are now treated to the disorienting sight of the entire army that viciously attacked Sanders in 2016 now mouthing his ideas as if they were their own less than two years later.

Of course I'm fine with that. Spreading these ideas was always the point, but then why the continual disrespect and smearing of the good senator?

The bad-faith efforts to smear Sanders as a racist, a sexist, or simply as if he did not exist at all are ugly and immoral. Ugly. And immoral.

It is one thing to ignore the liberal in the race and say he can't win. It is entirely another to lose the philosophical argument, steal all of those ideas as they become ascendant, not because of you but in spite of you, and then smear the man whose life work was pushing for those ideas while you mocked and ignored him. Bernie Sanders worked in obscurity for thirty years to bring those ideas to the country that he loves.

When one watches the media refer to AOC, another great American hero as far as I'm concerned, as the Democratic Socialist, as the one with the ideas, as perhaps the future of the party, without so much as mentioning Sanders, the obviousness of this ruse becomes glaring. You will mention the 29-year-old freshman congresswoman, a month in office and not even old enough to run for president without mentioning the 77-year-old senator on whose campaign AOC first became active, involved, and inspired? Why is that?

If the Democrats were so determined to create a Medicare for All healthcare system, demand a living wage for American workers, tax the rich and corporations at much higher rates, and make public college tuition free, then why this endless mistreatment of Sanders?

It wouldn't be hard to treat him as the elder statesman that he obviously is, to simply mention his name in a positive light when discussing the changes taking place in the party. Not only would it not be hard, it would be smart: disrespecting him is disrespecting the millions of Americans who supported him in 2016 and support him now. So why don't they do it?

There is one reason: They are afraid of him because he is serious about these issues and will actually work hard to make them a reality. Which logically leads to the conclusion that Democrats are not serious about these issues and won't work for them once in office. Nancy Pelosi was caught just a few days ago assuring the insurance industry that Medicare for All is nothing for them to worry about.

If the Democratic Party had any intention of fighting for the working people of America they could afford to treat Senator Sanders with decency. Hell, they could afford to let him run for the nomination without all of the lies and ugliness and let the best woman or man win. They could even—God forbid!—see him win and be happy with it.

They can't simply because they are as determined as they ever were to protect the moneyed interests that they have supported for the last quarter century. What other reason could there be for this absurd and painfully obvious Kabuki theater? And that makes all of their talk about bank regulation and Medicare for All pretty little lies.

The silence and scorn heaped on Sanders by the very people who now shamelessly ape his every word prove that he is the one authentic leader in this country. He is the person who can win the nomination and beat Donald Trump. He is the leader who can bring a better life to working-class Americans everywhere.

Senator Sanders, I implore you. Run.
