Bernie is just like Trump!…right? No? You mean that’s just a narrative the MSM and propagandists like to push to smear Bernie?

They get their opinion facts from Hoarse Whisperer.

I am disappointed in having to say this.

Having checked AOC’s twitter feed it does not have a single mention of Bernie’s revolutionary Climate Plan. This does not bode well. 😥

I was going to say the other day that we should expect to see people we like endorsing Warren for whatever reason or other. Some will sugarcoat it with platitudes of Bernie has set the conversation but Warren is a woman who will carry his torch, etc etc. Much like Haaland (though as of yet I havent seen any real reasoning out of her, I know she has gotten alot of pushback on twitter).

I wonder how many people in the general public even realize that Bernie is Jewish.

I read an article this morning about Kamala Harris that made me see Bernie’s tweet the other day, after it was reported the Kamala expressed doubts about Medicare For All while at a Hamptons fundraiser, in a different light.

Long story short, in the article the writer, Louis Staples at UK’s Independent, lays down not only how Harris has now “pivoted herself into a corner”, but how she “has just consigned herself to the political graveyard” by moving away from her initial support of MFA. Brutal.

Harris has discovered the hard way that she is never going to win over enough voters on the left of the Democratic Party to become Biden’s main challenger. Voters on the left are uneasy about her background as a prosecutor. Her past stances on the death penalty, marijuana offences and the detention of children – combined with her history of jailing parents whose children missed school – have come under particular scrutiny.

The writer, Louis Staples at UK’s Independent, then went on to remind us of the short work Tulsi Gabbard made of Harris at the last debate and talks about how Harris is good at “sensing the political mood”.

Now, using that same political intuition she’s always had, Harris is reacting by attempting to re-steer her campaign. She’s pivoting back to the centre, hoping that if former vice president Biden continues to misstep, she may become the centrist candidate of choice. If chosen, she’d likely face off against Warren or Sanders, who will represent the more progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

And here’s the part I must admit found insightful :

The problem with this strategy is it doesn’t have the faintest chance of happening. While it does make sense that Harris would eventually pivot towards the centre after receiving little joy from the left of her party, this race has always been about who will face Biden. His final opponent will be the person offering a sufficiently radical and different vision from his.

I wonder if all this has anything to do with why Kamala Harris’s people were so rude to Bernie yesterday?
