Bernie Sanders stated today in Vermont that he’s staying in the presidential race despite some disappointing election returns and that he looks forward to the one-on-one debate with Joe Biden on Sunday — a debate that a top Bidenbot sleazily called for the Democratic National Committee to summarily cancel because Biden is ahead in the race for pledged delegates for now. But there are 26 more states that have yet to vote, and Biden isn’t even halfway to the 1,991 pledged delegates that he would need to actually win and earn the nomination.
Yesterday, even before we learned who won which of the six states that voted in the Democratic Party presidential primary contest (and by how much), Bidenbot U.S. Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, drunk on what he very apparently believes is his unique Democratic Party kingmaker status, asserted that if Bernie Sanders didn’t do very well in the six states yesterday, the Democratic National Committee should just go ahead and shut the whole thing down.
“I think when the night is over, Joe Biden will be the prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic nomination, and, quite frankly, if the night ends the way it has begun [with Sanders trailing in the polls in the six states that voted yesterday], I think it is time for us to shut this primary down, it is time for us to cancel the rest of these debates — because you don’t do anything but get yourself in trouble if you continue in this contest when it’s obvious that the numbers will not shake out for you,” Clyburn summarily fatwa’d.
Now, maybe in his own circle Clyburn is a Big Fucking Deal, but to me and to millions of other American voters, he’s no one, is just yet another self-serving Democratic Party hack.
Clyburn had endorsed Joe Biden right before the South Carolina primary — which Biden always was expected to win anyway. (The question was only by how much.) So Clyburn’s kingmaking status is way overrated, by himself and by those who follow the charlatan.
It’s awfully interesting, though, that Clyburn supposedly believes that Biden is the stronger candidate, yet he doesn’t want Biden to appear in any more debates.
Why wouldn’t you want Biden to debate Bernie as scheduled on Sunday? (More on this in a moment…)
Here’s the deal: There are 26 states that have yet to vote in the Democratic Party presidential primary contest. And to win the party’s presidential nomination, you must have earned 1,991 pledged delegates. Thus far, Biden isn’t even halfway to 1,991 pledged delegates (The New York Times’ tally right now has Biden at 864 to Bernie’s 710).
Yes, Biden has the momentum — for now. But again, to win the game you need 1,991 delegates, and Biden is not there yet. Bernie has no good reason to drop out now. Fuck the Bidenbots for asserting otherwise.
If Joe Biden is too fucking fragile to be challenged further by Bernie Sanders, who can be firm and stern but who is known for his honesty and decency and his sense of fair play, how the fuck is Biden going to challenge “President” Pussygrabber, who has no good qualities and no shame?
I’ll ask again: Do we want Biden to win the battle with Bernie only to lose the war with Pussygrabber?
And I have to wonder: Would the Bidenbots rather that Joe Biden lose to Pussygrabber in November than that Bernie beat Pussygrabber in November?
Seriously, ask yourself that question — would the Biden-loving DINOs rather have four more years of “President” Pussygrabber than a President Sanders?
I think that many of them, if not even most of them, would. Why? Because a President Sanders would threaten their unique, elitist, self-serving status. He would break up their long-standing ring of self-serving power that comes at the expense of us, the people.
Memo to Clyburn: One, fuck you. Two, shut the fuck up. You are one person. How dare you advocate that the democratic process be shut down in order to benefit your chosen candidate? Who the fuck are you?
Clyburn, you are self-serving and corrupt and you despise democracy except when you can bend it your corrupt way; the likes of you is why Bernie is so popular and why the Democratic Party establishment is in such trouble. We, the people, are sick and fucking tired of pro-corporate sellouts calling themselves “Democrats” while fucking over us, the people, in perpetuity with impunity.
Meanwhile, while Clyburn & Co. are off fucking themselves, Bernie Sanders soldiers on. He will participate in Sunday’s debate, he announced today during an appearance in Burlington, Vermont, after having reassessed overnight how he should proceed.
(That Bernie made no speech or announcement last night was reported as “news,” but I think it’s admirable and that it was necessary that Bernie and his campaign crew stepped back for a little bit and discussed the path forward, not feeling that they had to put out an immediate answer in the age of Twitter.)
I and millions of other Americans are happy that Bernie is soldiering on. We reject calls from the DINOs that amount to, “Surrender, Dorothy!” Fuck them; they are showing their true, anti-democratic and anti-Democratic character.
And if the Bidenbots actually think that they can do without us Berners in November, just ask Billary Clinton how well it went for her to not have our support because she didn’t fucking deserve it.
What I am hoping, of course — full disclosure! — is that Joe Biden implodes during the debate on Sunday. The serious issue of Joe Biden’s obvious dementia needs to be exposed now, not when he’s on a debate stage with Pussygrabber, because then, it will be way too fucking late.
I don’t think that Biden can go one-on-one with Bernie Sanders in a debate and survive. Thus far he’s only had to chirp in here and there while a crowded debate stage fights for attention.
On Sunday, the often-addled Biden would be, I surmise, overwhelmed by Bernie.
Therefore, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Biden pulled out of Sunday’s debate, claiming that the debate is just unnecessary when the fact is that Team Biden knows that the debate just might demonstrate amply that Emperor Biden not only has no clothes, but that he has lost his marbles, too. (I give that cowardly cancellation at least a one-in-three chance of happening.)
When should Bernie drop out, if he should drop out at all?
In my book, it’s entirely within Bernie’s rights to remain in the race until and unless Biden actually earns those 1,991 pledged delegates, and if Bernie does so, then I’ll have even more respect for him for having stuck to his guns and not folded like the house of cards that is the Biden campaign, just waiting to topple in on itself but encouraging Team Bernie to foolishly fold ahead of it instead.
Again: Fuck the Bidenbots.
We, the people, want a new, actually progressive Democratic Party and a new nation, and we won’t rest until we get it.
Woe to the DINOs who stand in our way.
