>he Democratic Party turned sharply against him. The same party that Sanders claimed could be reformed mobilized to resuscitate the campaign of Biden, the semi-senile embodiment of the party as an instrument of Wall Street and the military.
Sanders might've caucused as a Democrat for ages but he was never a Democrat and thus never one of "them." It's fucking obvious that as more moderates dropped they'd flock to Biden based off his performance in SC. There is no conspiracy, and since the author claims there is one, then prove it.
>This included a number of statements declaring his readiness to wage war against Iran, North Korea, Russia, and China, and that the US has “the best military in the world.”
You will never win in national politics if you actively demonise arguably one of the most powerful military forces of all time, whether you like it or not, this is a sacred cow that is impossible to attack and get away with it unscathed.
> His criticisms of “my friend Joe” did not extend beyond mild rebukes. He did not once mention “socialism,” “capitalism,” or his “political revolution.”
>Sanders does not call for placing the pharmaceutical and medical equipment industries under public ownership in order to launch an emergency program to open more intensive care units and produce ventilators, as well as the development of a vaccine. He does not call for confiscating the fortunes of the super-rich to pay for the enormous social needs created by the crisis—and aggravated by decades of corporate-directed cutbacks in public healthcare services. He does not even call for taxing the wealthy.
Retard tier idealism. There is not enough of a leftwing movement in the United States to even contemplate publicly saying this. I totally agree that this should be done but you're fucking retarded if you think anyone would seriously propose such notions right now. All we can do is wait and see how the NSC + Cabinet utilise the Defense Mobilization Act given we all know Trump isn't holding the reins right now.
