Bernie Out, But is He Really Gone?

Bye, bye Bernie Sanders. The socialist Vermont senator ended his campaign, leaving the door open for Joe Biden to clinch the Democrat nomination. Apparently his Communist democratic socialist schtick was a bit too much for the party establishment to handle. Even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t save him.

President Trump, naturally, immediately took to Twitter to express his glee:

Bernie looked like a juggernaut in the first primaries. He tied with Pete Buttigieg (remember him?) in Iowa, and took the primaries in New Hampshire and Nevada. Bernie Bros, mostly young adults with little or no real life experience, bought into his “Medicare for All” and “free college” schemes and rallied to his side. However, big donors, party leaders, and elected officials decided that Feeling the Bern would not score big amongst the electorate. That’s when former NYC Mayor Mike “I Heart Xi Jinping” Bloomberg threw his hat into the ring in order to deflect Sanders.

But then came Super Tuesday, and the increasingly befuddled Joe Biden revived, taking the series with 10 of 14 states. From then on Biden scored primary after primary. Both Bernie and Bloomie were left behind.

Then the pandemic struck, leaving everyone confined to their homes. Campaigns largely came to a halt, except for Biden’s disastrous virtual “town halls.” And finally Bernie cried out no mas! His campaign was over, done, kaput. He announced the sad end on a livestream that came loaded with his typical Workers-of-the-World-Unite rhetoric.

Or is Bernie really toast? At the end of his livestream, he said that he was still going to collect delegates and stay on the ballot.

So, how do you quit a campaign for the presidency, yet still stay on the ballot and collect delegates?

Bernie is a sly dog. He may be out, but like the good apparatchik he is, he still wants to drag the Democratic party ever more to the left.

Of course. Bernie operates like Lenin and Mao — maybe down for now, but still working behind the scenes to spread communism democratic socialism. As he said at the end of his livestream, The struggle for justice continues onNot only that, but he added this:

“We will change this nation, and with like-minded friends around the globe, change the entire world.” 

I hear the strains of “The Internationale,” don’t you?

Bernie may be out of the race, but he’s not down, not by a long shot. Those Commie roots of his run way too deep to let it all go now.

    Guess someone finally came up with enough cash so Bernie can buy that 4th house he and his wife wanted. The last one was on a lake. Wonder if the next one is on the ocean and noticeably larger than Obama’s place?

    Socialism is like herpes.

    You think it’s gone, and then it flares up again.

    I have trouble distinguishing photos of Bernie Sanders from Jeremy Corbyn. They look equally sour and miserable, but that’s the norm for extreme socialists: they look for misery to justify their own existence and try hard to inflict misery on everyone else. Both have lost in the main game, but both claim they have won the philosophical battle.

    Bernie was a lot like George Wallace- a radical candidate with a fanatical base, but almost no appeal outside those followers. Even Occasional-Cortex noticed that he wasn’t going to be winning & she best make nice with the Establishment- and she’s denser than the core of a neutron star.

    He did get some traction in ’16 against Hillary, but ANYBODY would be preferable to the Wicked Witch of Chappaquiddick.

    But once he set out on his own, most of the Democrats took a look, and said “nope!”
