The Empire Strikes Back At Bernie Sanders



This propaganda is a coordinated attack on the supporters of a candidate of theirs in order to essentially force him from the race, and they're blatantly lying. After focusing attacks on his supporters (never saw a party attack their own people in this way leading into a likely to be tough election, especially given that the likely nominee is polling horribly and is already on thin ice), these same people are then assumed to turn around, forget that, and fall in line as a means to "unify the party". It's fascinating, they have utter contempt for the left and don't try to hide it, sign of just how much things have changed in the Democratic Party. So, are they right? Does the left just fall in line, and more importantly stop pushing and critiquing her? Her supporters essentially argue for us to give the right a monopoly on pushing and critiquing her, and they want that to happen as quickly as possible.

2. They are neoliberals and would likely prefer Trump to

Bernie, because Bernie wants to do stuff that will actually help us. Neolibs don't give a shit about that. They want to implement laws and policies that give their owners higher profits, that's it. Republican, Democrat - those are just nominal titles - the establishment wing of both parties serves THE SAME MASTERS.
