From all appearances, Bernie Sanders has won the Nevada caucuses. This clinches his status as the Democratic primary frontrunner. The Democrat establishment is panicking as they watch their worst fears come true. Now, they and the mainstream media are turning on Sanders to ensure he does not win the nomination… and lose to Trump.
Talk about fair-weathered friends, huh? Bernie Sanders has been a faithful ally to the Democratic Party for years. Sure, he’s normally an independent who slanders capitalism and endorses socialism, but when he needs the support of large voter base, he pretends to be a Democrat. Why shouldn’t the party bend over backwards to endorse his bid for the White House?
We’ve watched as the establishment worked to undermine Sanders’ campaign. It’s been going on all year. But now that he’s won an additional state in the primary race, they are really worried. People like Barack Obama know that if Sanders squeaks into the nomination, the party will lose not only the race for the White House, but quite possibly the House.
“It’s bad,” said one freshman Democrat from a swing district. “We are having conversations about how to deal with this.”
“If [Sanders] is the nominee, we lose,” said one Democrat. [Source: Fox News]
Which is why the Democrats and their lackies in the media have come out in full force against the socialist.
“Sen. Sanders believes in an inflexible, ideological revolution that leaves out most Democrats, not to mention most Americans,” [Pete Buttigieg] argued…
Buttigieg also claimed Sanders and his supporters are taking aim at moderate Democrats running in congressional races, saying the senator, “is ignoring, dismissing, or even attacking the very Democrats we absolutely must send to Capitol Hill. [Source: Fox News]
Joe Biden, whose campaign is limping along, criticized Bernie Sanders for how he tried to run against Obama in 2012. The liberal media is digging up old stories about Sanders’ connection to the Soviet Union, his love of communism, and fondness for infamous dictator Fidel Castro.
Not that they had to work hard to find these quotes. Sanders keeps giving them to them!
Sen. Bernie Sanders, the frontrunner for the Democrats’ presidential nomination, doubled down on his support for some of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s policies, saying in an interview that aired Sunday, “it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad.”
“When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?” Sanders told Anderson Cooper. [Source: Fox News]
Wow. And Sanders wants to become president of America? How can any legitimate candidate in the United States say a positive thing about Fidel Castro? This is the same Cuban dictator who acquired nukes from Russia and had them pointed at major U.S. cities. The only reason he didn’t use them was because of a blockade ordered by a tougher, more competent leader by the name of John F. Kennedy.
Castro is also the dictator who sent gay men to force labor camps, to kill them off. He also oppressed and murdered his people—for decades. Who cares if someone can read, when they’re being lined up for the firing range?
The Democrats don’t seem to have to work really hard to cast Sanders in a poor light. He does that himself! His plans for America are terrible. His “Medicare for All” and free college tuition would bankrupt our country. The sky-high taxes he’d implement would wipe out any economic prosperity we are currently enjoying.
But it seems Democratic voters want him, not one of the other candidates. Perhaps it’s because, out of all these clowns, he appears the most competent (scary, I know). Or perhaps smart Democrats have already left the party for the Trump train and are sitting out of the primaries.
Or perhaps, more accurately, the Democratic Party is long dead and Sanders (along with the rest of the socialists) is a vulture picking at the corpse.
