Bernie is never gonna fucking win playing nice. I don’t care about “party unity”. People will come around when faced with Bernie or Trump.
Bernie will never win by being nice to Biden. Sanders represents REVOLUTION. What does that word mean? Biden is literally a guardian of the corrupt corporate system. And all Bernie can muster is pointing out he voted for Iraq and softly pointing out other things while praising his character and calling him a friend?
If I was uninformed I would vote Biden 100% and pointing out a couple policy differences wouldn’t sway me from the nostalgia of Obama. But if I was told over and over how corrupt Biden is and won’t do shit for me, I would wake up and vote Bernie.
We will not win playing fucking nice I’m so frustrated with Bernie
Cornell West spoke in South Bend today; he talked about knowing Pete as a baby, since Pete’s dad is also an academic and they spent summers in Italy together doing research in the early 80s. Someone asked him about the future of the Democratic Party and he said, “Well, Pete is family, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to vote for him. I love my mom, but I don’t think she should be in office.” He went on to talk about “corporatist milquetoast” Democrats that don’t motivate people to get out and vote. (Can confirm, Pete likes to say he won with 80% of the vote, but only 10% of the town voted.) Then he went into talking about Bernie, how he’s consistent, and consistently on the side of justice. It was beautiful, and made me so glad to have such an orator with us.
