Honest, it’s not a Wanted poster.
Last time the fix was in, at Bernie Sanders’ expense, in 2016, he took one for the team and was rewarded with a nice new beach house. This time, 2020, the smart money says he’s going to sell out again.
I say he’s sold out already, because the price has nowhere to go but down.
Consider: Bernie has just promoted some Far Left Crazy kook named Agnew to be his senior campaign advisor (https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/08/bernie-sanders-phillip-agnew-dream-defenders-abolish-prisons/). How far to the left is he? Well, he’s co-director of “Dream Defenders,” a group that advocates the abolition of police and prisons, open borders, and the abolition of capitalism. They also say the government needs “to deliver what is owed to black people.” Finally, Mr. Agnew himself is holding out for the story that 9/11 was when “America… killed her own citizens.”
That’s out-of-the-Solar-system Left. Who but a lunatic would vote for any of those things? Bernie has pinned this guy to his lapel; so if you’re voting for Bernie, you’re voting for suicidally insane public policies.
Hmm… Think that’ll drive more Democrats into voting for Biden?
Of course it will. But in the meantime, it permits Bernie to preserve intact his reputation as a Social Justice Warrior, a socialist jihadi, a dyed-in-the-wool commie crackpot. He won’t have to drop out of the race; he’ll be blown out.
What will they give him for falling on his sword? Does he need another beach house, or is a mansion in the mountains coming his way?
And will the Bernie Bros, those lovable hammer and sicklers, take it lying down? Their gulag pipe dreams up in smoke again? It’s the “again” part that’s really gonna rankle.
