Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Biden was lifted up by the African American voters, not the "establishment".

Bernie and his campaign are railing against the "establishment" saying they were helping to support Biden.

Its utter bullshit.

Biden was struggling, had no money and as nichole wallace said on msnbc , would have been left like a roadkill on the side of the road if it had not been for Clyburn and the African American community coming in and lifting him up.

It was only at this stage post South Carolina that the more traditional Democrats started to endorse. It has now mushroomed into a roller coaster.

1. He's leading with the African American vote by double digits in most states, even YOUNG voters.

2. I love this quote from Joe Lockart on Twitter:

The Democratic "establishment" is not delivering wins for Biden tonight -- Democratic voters are doing it. Blacks, Latinos, suburban women, college educated and working class. It's insulting to these voters to suggest they are being coerced.

6. Lockhart is right. Like in 2016, democratic primary voters are pulling the strings.

 

The Sanders campaign and his supporters need to stop the horseshit, claiming that some mythical "establishnent" is calling the shots.

4. Not in the way the word is used by the Sanders campaign.

 

The AA community is the soul of the party, its backbone.

When detractors use "establishment " , they mean smoke filled backrooms where the party bigwigs pull the strings.

8. Exactly the people Bernie Bros railed against in 2016 when they voted for Hillary.

 

Because 'southern states are red and shouldn't really count.'

9. And those are also the people who lifted Hillary up in 2016.

 

The media likes to pretend that isn't true. But in the absence of a female candidate, and incredible sexism, I don't think they will get away with it this time.
