I have no words for the trash pointed to in this OP
So primary season for 2020 has opened, and the first target is Bernie:
Has the fire Berned out?" the Boston Globe's Michael Levenson asks on the front page.
The state of play: "[A]s Sanders weighs another campaign, some say that even as he has moved the Democratic Party ideologically — pushing issues such as Medicare for all, free college tuition, and a $15 minimum wage into the mainstream — the party has moved past him personally."
"I don’t see a lot of lasting energy for Bernie," said Markos Moulitsas, the founder and publisher of Daily Kos. "It’s different from last time when he was the alternative to an unfortunately flawed front-runner ... Right now, the mantle of 'progressive' can be carried by any number of candidates."
Another huge factor in calls for Sanders to stand down: N.Y. Times and Politico reports from women who say they faced sexual harassment and sexism in Sanders' 2016 campaign.
The fax machines have distributed today's talking points. The buzzword of the day is "moved on".
The same zombie lies. The same bullshit conventional wisdom. Little yappy dog, Markos, making sure to bark and wag his tail at the corporatist propaganda.
Its not that I'm anxious to give my time to Bernie again, I think he's now a sheepdog, as I've said many times.
But the naked hostility, the constant drumbeat against the man, is sickening. "The mantle of progressive can be carried by many candidates". You mean the fake sheepdog AOC, don't you unsigned editorialist at Axios - quoting an editorialist at the Globe. The completely overblown "sexism" charge is trotted out yet again, while its perfectly fine for a newly elected IdPol person to call Trump a motherf*****. Complete hypocrisy.
Jesus, even though I think the whole thing is rigged, the blatant agenda setting here just makes me want to punch someone. Its time for Bernie to "move on", but Joe Fuking Biden is a front-runner, according to the same conventionally wise-guys? The arrogance burns.
