25 Thing You Need To Know About Kamala Harris That The Media Won’t Tell You, Because They Can Only See Liz Warren

You may not know Kamala Harris is in the running to become the next VP of the United States if you rely on media of a Caucasian Persuasion, but never fear, Dear Hearts, I am as Blackkety Black as they come. I will give you many facts. Why is there a media Black-out on Kamala Harris? Because, the media wants Liz Warren. It was quite apparent to anyone who actually gave a shit that there was quite a bit of erasure of Kamala Harris in the media when she was running for President, especially when it came to the excellent work she had done over the years. When Laura Bazelon published her stupid op-ed last year, she completely misrepresented most of the complaints she had about Kamala, to the point where it now seems like it was personal. And, let me keep it real, everyone who used that article as source material, knowing it was opinion, yet presented that bullshit as fact, is going to hell. Just kidding, we don’t want your kind in our nice warm hell.

Time and time again, as I reread it recently, I noticed that her op-ed interpreted every move or non-move Harris made in a comically villainous manner. Every single inmate highlighted was “obviously” innocent, rulings made by judges in Harris’ favor were only made because Harris didn’t respect the secret silent signal rules that every lawyer secretly follows. Like that case where a death row inmate, who had several DNA tests and a blood test done prior that Bazelon glossed over, could surely be killed by State Murder (that is not going on because California suspended the Death Penalty), yet would be PROVEN innocent if they did a new new new DNA test that was super expensive, and who knows? Maybe he would. Or maybe he’s saying he was framed by the cops? The case is getting more attention, as we wait on the latest set of results. We know all of this; in a career spanning nearly 30 years, Bazelon managed to highlight about 20 or so times Harris either could have decided the other way, wasn’t aware of something, was indecisive, or wasn’t seeing the forest for the trees. In 30 years, this is a very good record. I mean, I make like 10 mistakes per day, so, if you went back a day, you can find as many mistakes in some work I got into in these two days, as Bazelon found in Harris’ whole career. Yes, my mistakes are smaller; nobody is dumb enough to trust me with any type of power.

One thing I keep wondering is: why it is that nobody knows anything GOOD about Kamala Harris, something besides the hyped up and dramatized acts of the Kamala caricature that has been manufactured by the leftist media? I have come to a conclusion; nobody reads books. Kamala Harris tends to read books, so it seems to me, she expects that others read books too. I won’t list off her own books, but suffice to say if you want to know more about her, you might want to start with the memoir she wrote right before she began her run for president.

I created a list of facts about, and accomplishments of Kamala Harris, and I will compile another set of beautiful facts for you whenever I get around to it.

1. Co-founded a group called Coalition to End the Exploitation of Kids.

2. Started a program called Back on Track to keep offenders out of prison by helping them with education and employment.

12. First Indian American to serve as a US Senator.

13. Second Black Woman to serve as a US Senator.

17. In 2008 she refused to defend Prop 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state, and helped lead the fight in having it overturned in 2013.

18. Harris serves on both the Select Committee on Intelligence and the Judiciary Committee.

19. As San Francisco’s district attorney, she created a unit centered around child sex crimes.

20. Was named “Child Advocate of the Year” by the San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Council.

21. At Howard she joined the sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha, one of the oldest Black Sororities in America.

22. Harris organized mentor programs for minority youths, demonstrated against apartheid while attending College at Howard.

23. She served as co-chair of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights.

24. Was the founder of a mentoring program at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art that has served hundreds of young people from the inner city.

25. Was president of the Board of Directors of Partners Ending Domestic Abuse while serving as DA.

 

So, now you know a little something about the woman who may end up becoming your first woman Vice President, and none of it came covered in shit, or was editorialized in any way. You should click the links you feel like clicking, but know this, some of them link to the same goddamn place. It’s really hard to find unbiased information about Kamala Harris anyfookingwhere on the web, thanks to a toxic primary season driven by the young followers of the oldest candidate in the race. I will bring you more facts that you can check yourself as the VP vetting continues, because we all know, the main stream media won’t bother discussing or even telling you any of this.

So, stay tuned for another piece on all of the Policies and Plans of Kamala Harris.

Kamala Harris Is The Best Choice For VP, So Biden Needs To Announce Her As His Running Mate ASAP

During the “Mueller Report Affair” last year I noticed something interesting, and by interesting, I mean hilarious; Kamala Harris made Bill Barr forget what words mean. These were not complicated and compound German words where they go on forever and contain far too many consonants to be deciphered. They were also not even high level words one might find in a test prep book for college. Nope. These were commonly used, everyday words like “asked” and “suggest”, words so easy I just asked my ten year old to define them, and let’s just say she did a far better job than the Attorney General of the USA. By the time Kamala finished chewing up Barr and spitting him out, poor Billo was so confused he was stuck desperately whispering to his own lawyers, trying to get them to supply him with words to say. Can you imagine Kamala Harris doing this to Mike Pence on the debate stage? I can, and it makes me laugh.

When Kamala Harris suspended her campaign in the first days of December, I was fully distraught. It was only a few days later that I recognized the wisdom in what older Black voters had been saying to me since day one: Kamala should run WITH Joe Biden rather than against him, be his teammate not his rival, they could only choose one. Their words, I hope, reach God’s ears, because this was actually some of the best advice we had been resisting for months. It’s going to take a strong team to defeat the money bags and trickery that will come at us from the GOP, and in my view Biden and Harris are that team. Even in my most resistant phase, I saw the value of another admonishment I received, this time from Vanilla, telling me not to go nuclear on Biden, not to use my voice to tear him down, because he WAS likely to BE the nominee, and I would have to live with my choices if I weakened him to the point where he became a non-viable candidate. I decided to stop. Of course, I don’t believe I alone have that power, but as you all know; Shit spreads on social media like a wildfire; like the butterfly effect, it only takes a few words said just the right way, repeated by many, and before you know it, we’re all eating shit sandwiches on election day in November. I know better than anyone; I watched Beth Lynch push the “Kamala is a COP!” line to the max and I also watched that notion become “Common Knowledge.” In the activist circles of the Dem Primary, a narrative like that can be very toxic and lends itself to misrepresentation, erasure of one’s good work, mythologization, and straight up lies.

By the time Tulsi Gabbard went on stage and falsely accused Harris of GREAT WRONGS we could see the smear campaign working, and without a long term national profile it was very difficult to combat. People have to know you to trust that you are who you say you are, and from the beginning it was going to be hard for anyone new to break through. We needed to team up with Joe; we have masses of energy, a cohesive and dedicated grass roots, but everyone KNOWS Joe; he has some things money can’t buy and social media cannot destroy: Credibility, dues paid, connections, and the loyalty of Black America. When supporters of Joe Biden hit me up in the late days of August, and suggested a neutrality agreement, it only took me a few seconds to agree and accept the offer: we would support Joe for President and they’d support Kamala for VP if worst came to worst. The K-Hive would grow up and turn our fire on the crew that was burning the rest of the candidates at the stake weekly, and if Kamala did drop out, we would move to Joe rather than suffer Bernie. As much as I often agree with Bernie that the nation must move in a direction that puts the most emphasis on The People, and providing for those most in need, I have never agreed with his tactic of silently permitting his Revolution to destroy the reputations of his rivals while feigning ignorance.

Well, the worst did come, Kamala dropped out, and we have supported Joe ever since. I appreciate the members of the K-Hive being so understanding about my quick move to Joe after Kamala left; not one person cussed me out, which is kinda unusual. We offered our services to the newly formed union and we attempted to BE like Kamala in whatever way we could; one thing she always said was “Dude’s gotta go.”, so we knew better than to act out and pretend our goal was something other than getting Trump out of office. Being like Kamala meant when other candidates dropped out it was our job to be kind, understand that their supporters need space, and to welcome them into the fold so we could team up against a very dangerous President. The most important thing was not our petty internecine warfare, it was not getting payback for slight or barbs against our candidate, it was always teaming up against Trump. This means, when Joe reached out to the K-Hive for help, we went to the mattresses. What you know about that K-Hive life, son? Fuck around and find out. Ha!

Now, we are faced with another opportunity to help out, in the form of supporting the insanely smart idea of Kamala for VP. There are those who say silly shit about Kamala not winning the primary making her a bad VP choice, and it makes me laugh my ass off. What VP actually WON the Primary? Biden himself did rather poorly in the delegate race in 2008, yet he became one of the best VP’s in modern history. And now that he has won the Presidential Primary; he will BE our next President; he will be number 46 if we all do what is best for the nation, and if we get our asses to the polls. That is where Kamala Harris comes in, surprisingly enough. Black Voters want a Black Woman VP, and WE want record Black turnout. Representation on the ballot gives our Demographic a 5% boost in turnout at the polls, even our non voters are likelier to show up if black is on the ballot. Of all of the Black Women being considered only one had the courage to actually run for President: Kamala Harris.

Politico:

Biden is already highly popular with black voters, according to the poll of 800 black voters conducted for BlackPAC, a progressive-leaning advocacy group. But 55 percent of African American voters said they would be more excited to turn out or vote for Biden if he were to pick a black woman to join his ticket, the poll showed. However, 27 percent said the pick made no difference because they would stick with Biden.

Black Voters are the most likely to vote for the Democratic Party, I cannot stress this enough, we NEED record black turnout to win. Period.

Let’s take a look at Black turnout over the years:

Had black voters been represented on the ballot, it is very likely Hillary Clinton would be President, but this is not a knock on Hillary, it is a knock on our common beliefs about electability that we get from the media. The media is white, and as such, everything is viewed through the lens of whiteness. All of 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and much of 2019, we were fed a steady diet of the importance of the White working class vote. There are more white voters, we lost white voters during the realignment period before I was born, and the Progressive Movement of Bernie Sanders emphasized the importance of reclaiming white voters, while erasing the reasons they moved to the GOP. Racism, sexism, and the various culture wars have all gotten bagged and tagged as “Identity Politics”, a feat that would have made Lee Atwater proud in his heyday. The necessity of the Black vote was downplayed, the importance of white men was played up, and Clinton, already dealing with a series of invented “scandals” did what society viewed as the “safe” thing. She chose a white man as her running mate, but unfortunately he was unable to activate enthusiasm in Black voters, especially those disillusioned with the Democratic Party or who did not vote regularly.

NYT:

Black voters have consistently supported Democratic candidates over Republicans by stunning margins: about 90 percent to 10 percent. No other major demographic comes close to this level of support — for either party. For every 10 new black voters, 9 will likely vote for a Democrat and one for a Republican, yielding eight net Democratic votes. In contrast, 10 new Latino voters (who voted 70 percent Democratic and 30 percent Republican in 2018) would produce four net Democratic votes. For white, college-educated women, the figure is two.

We need Black on the Ballot so black voters know we have a seat at the table and that our concerns will be heard, and hopefully addressed.

Like Shirley Chisholm before her, Kamala Harris wants a seat at the table, she wants to help guide this nation out of madness, and she wants to do it while being a Black-Indian American Woman. How will our needs get met if we are not represented in the rooms where the powers that be are deciding who gets what? As we know from the many failures of first, second, and now third and fourth wave Feminism, white women often fail at intersectionality, and as such do a poor job at representing women of color. We need a Black Woman.

I have another piece planned out where I wanted to write up a K-Hive Official Endorsement of Team Biden-Harris, and in it I planned on laying out the case in as logical of a fashion as I am able to do. Maybe I still will finish that piece. But this is a personal endorsement for me and I am an intuitive person rather than a logician, so this piece is fully written through the lens of my experience. Beau Biden would be the Biden running in this election (now I’m crying) had he not been struck down so many decades before his time, this is what I believe. I always really liked Beau, and I used to look forward to seeing him in the media from time to time, but now he is not there. It is sad. Like Joe, I have lost my own child, my first born; when Beau died it disturbed me, to this day I try not to think about it for fear that it will bring me back to the low place I was. Kamala Harris became friends with Beau during the time when she and he both held the office of AG, so Kamala is no stranger to the Biden family. I can imagine it would have been no hardship for Beau and Kamala to team up in this contest, if had he survived. I am not saying that this is THE reason they should team up, but it is A reason their teaming up would be successful. They are friends who lost someone together, they already have a connection, and when times get rough I know that they will be there for each other. That’s important.

Kamala Harris is a busy woman these days; she’s Social Distancing like the rest of us, yet somehow she manages to seem like she’s everywhere at once. In the Senate, fundraising for the Democratic Party and Joe Biden, crafting policy out of thin air with her “Black Girl Magic”, and she even gives interviews. But, look here, Jack, that’s not all she’s up to these days; she worked on the Covid-19 Stimulus, warned Black People about Covid-19 and spread awareness about the disparity in health outcomes for Corona, she addressed other health concerns like pregnancy, is singlehandedly attempting to save our entire Democracy, and has been explaining her plan to USE the Corona-virus as a mechanism to fight White Supremacy and Systemic Oppression. By doing Judo on it. All that, and she still has loads of time to rent free space in a million heads at once.

Speculation has grown since Sanders dropped out of the race for the Democratic nomination two full months ahead of schedule, and now we are destined to sit and wait for the conclusion of an interminable vetting process Joe Biden has likely been working on in his secret podcasting lair. Or he has been letting the professionals handle it? Who even knows? I feel like a kid in the back seat waiting for Joe-Dad to hurry up and get us wherever the hell we’re going, I am smoldering impatiently at how pleasant he is while enjoying the scenery, and I’m considering screaming “HURRY UP!!!” in his ear like a spoiled brat.

We get it, we get it, you are super busy vetting a list of candidates, just like Obama vetted you on some list, and you want to make the right choice. I’m not trying to pressure Biden; I am not a pushy person, but here’s the thing– he is taking too goddamn long, and needs to hurry up and choose Kamala Harris. We ain’t got all the time in the world to sit and wait… oh, yes we do, never-mind. What I mean is this; you need to tell us who you picked very very soon, so that people stop contemplating the absolute worst possible VP choices and debating them in my mentions, because it bothers me to death.

I expect an announcement soon, because I like to expect things no one has offered me, apparently.

I just hope the announcement will be Biden-Harris 2020. I want to win.

Bernie Sanders’ “Path To Victory” Is In The Same Place As The “Real Killers” O.J. Simpson Is “Searching” For

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Have you seen Bernie Sanders’ “Path to Victory” laying around anywhere? For weeks Dems have been searching high and low, in brooks and streams, on hillsides and mountaintops, down in the valleys and on the high plains, from sea to shining sea, yet we cannot find Bernie’s way. We’ve asked and asked, sent in our most fearless interrogators, we have even asked his team, all to no avail; Bernies mysterious path to victory eludes even the most dogged Dem detectives. From Bernie-world we hear cries of sorrow and squeaks of outrage; how dare we call on Bernie to drop out when not every state has voted? Do we not even care a little for Democracy? This is between THEIR cries for Biden to drop out, usually due to some health condition invented on the spot. We patiently explain math to the masses of angry Bernie people we find braying and howling in our mentions, we explain how unlikely it is that people will flip to Bernie from Biden. Again, all to no avail. Bernie Sanders claims to have a “narrow” path to victory. Who are Berners to believe? Me or his lying lies? Besides, Bernie would never play games, if he says he can win (I imagine Berners think this), then GODDAMMIT HE CAN WIN!!

Many say Bernie is a truth teller, not a self centered old codger who just missed his last chance to hold Presidential power. I disagree.

Bernie Sanders is absolutely full of shit. Ever since he lost the Michigan contest so epically to Joe Biden in March, Bernie has been touting his “narrow path to victory” to anyone willing to put him on the air, or give him the undeserved attention he so desperately craves. But, when asked what exactly that path looks like, Bernie gets mad, and Bernie’s staff gets quieter than a group of mimes at the library during “shut the fuck up” time. Indeed, you can’t get directions to this path from any known map, you can’t get it told to you by enlightened Berners, Bernie’s staff won’t point it out, and Bernie himself will not fucking tell you no matter how many times you ask.

Much like O.J. Simpson searching for the “real killers” of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, Bernie’s fruitless path will lead right back to himself, after winding its way aimlessly around the nation. Let’s hope Bernie doesn’t hit up Vegas and find out someone has some of his stolen memorabilia.

From Politico:

Bernie Sanders insists he has a “narrow path” to the nomination. But he and his aides refuse to say what it is.

I oscillate between laughter at the people still in thrall to Belated Bernie, and irritation AT Bernie for playing these stupid games; if there really is a path, it cannot possibly be so difficult to explain that you lose your ability to speak when its mentioned. Bernie’s comeback was supposed to begin in Michigan, a state he won in 2016, yet lost so decisively last month that he lost every single county. Michigan was supposed to be his salvation, he even went there to deliver a speech on race that he didn’t bother to deliver. For a man who has been CENTERED in the Civil Rights Movement, to the point where Black Leaders have been denounced by The Revolution as “sell outs”, or “selling us all out” for not choosing to support the only person in the race with photos of Bruce Rappaport doing civil rights work, Bernie is terrible at even discussing race. So, I guess he chose not to bother trying to get better in the five years he’s had to fix his issues with Black People, much easier to let PoC speak for you. Maybe soon we can be centered in our own movements again? Yeah. Wish in one hand…

A majority of the states and territories yet to vote rejected him in 2016. The national polls don’t offer much hope either — since Joe Biden defeated him in Arizona, Florida and Illinois on March 17, Sanders has trailed him by double-digits in every single national survey.

At this time Biden is polling ahead of Sanders in Alaska (My State) 57 to 43, in Wisconsin Biden is up by as much as 30% in some polls and 538 has his odds of winning at 88%. Biden is also forecast to win Puerto Rico, Ohio, Kansas, Guam, Nebraska, Oregon, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Indiana, Connecticut, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Delaware, District of Columbia, Montana, South Dakota, Virgin Islands, West Virginia, Louisiana, New York, and Kentucky. This is all the states we have left. Where the fuck is that path to victory?

Whoopi Goldberg grilled Sanders on “The View,” pushing him to explain how he could still capture the nomination. He never spelled it out, instead arguing that “people in a democracy have a right to vote and have a right to vote for the agenda that they think can work for America, especially in this very, very difficult moment.”

Wow, how clever. Does this mean people actually have the right to vote for whatever agenda they think will work best, or is this just some shit the losing side says to convince themselves that their cause is so noble, so integral, that it’s worth potentially handing Trump the White House for another 4 years? Let’s keep it all the entire way real; Bernie knows many people believe his staying in the race long after it was clearly fucking over made it extremely hard for Hillary to unite the party, and it pisses him off when anyone alludes to it. So, why the fuck does he look like he’s about to repeat the same dumb ass shit this year?

His path is so narrow that some of Sanders’ senior aides have even advised him to consider dropping out, though not everyone in his inner circle feels the same way, according to people familiar with the situation.

COME ON, BRO!!! Your own staffers are telling you it’s over, and they are your favorite type of staffers–men. Why aren’t you at least listening to Clown ass Weaver? You LOVE Clowns! You hired Nina, Brie Brie, and Corny to prove it.

Another possible reason for not explaining his long-shot course to victory: it depends on something his staff and allies have for the most part only whispered about — an epic Biden collapse. 

This is the real reason Bernie is staying in and I find it super fucked up. The only ones trying to manufacture a collapse of that magnitude are Bernie’s very own supporters, who behave more like a hit squad than like stalwart fans. Daily we have obnoxious bros in our mentions pushing some half cocked bullshit that mysteriously begins trending overnight, and dies down during the day. Oh, sure, it could really be thousands of Berners up late organically causing hashtags to trend, but it’s not fucking likely.

Here is what Bernie is after:

It is especially important to these Sanders supporters to maintain the rule changes they achieved in 2016, such as barring superdelegates from voting for presidential candidates on the first ballot. In order for his backers to have negotiating power, they said, Sanders needs to receive at least 1,200 delegates — he has more than 900 now — so they can introduce minority resolutions. They also hope that Sanders can push Biden to commit to progressive appointments.

No, no no no no no double fuck you all to hell NO. Fuck NO. Fuck YOU. Progressive appointments? FUCK OFF. Biden doesn’t need any of you back stabbing, ball biting bitches running game on him within his administration. Do you SEE the shit y’all are posting about him? The DUMBEST thing Biden could do is trust ANY of the Berniecrats as far as I could throw Donald Trump.

“The party reforms go down the drain if he doesn’t stay in,” said Cohen, adding that if he drops out before hitting 1,200 delegates, “it’s going to be Biden’s people writing the platform, that’s it.”

Good. I hope we hold Bernie Sanders below 1200 for one simple reason. Bernie Sanders is an asshole and the rule changes were made in hopes of settling some differences and moving forward in unity, without all of the claims of cheating and rigging, yet that is not how things went. Instead, we have Bernie’s loudest surrogates and supporters spreading nasty rumors and assassinating the character of the likely nominee, all in hopes it will stain Biden so bad he will have to withdraw and let Bernie be nominee. THIS IS EXTREMELY UNLIKELY.

If you’re upset with Sanders for not dropping out, there is no need to lose hope or feel like all is lost; staying in the race has the potential to be damaging to Sanders’ movement, possibly completely neutering the left of left, and it would be all their own dumb ass faults.

MSNBC:

But what if, this time around, he sticks it out and there are no more primary wins, or even near-misses? What if it’s just one landslide defeat after another?

If the late stage of the ’16 primary season enhanced his clout, would finishing up now with a string of lopsided losses actually diminish Sanders and his movement? 

Unlike in 2016, Bernie is unlikely to win ANY more states, so that momentum argument they used to “prove” Bernie Woulda Won, would instead prove Bernie Shoulda Not Run. Many voters who chose Bernie Sanders in 2016 have chosen to go with Joe Biden in 2020; Bernie’s base has only gotten smaller as the years have passed, and cries of “Feel the Bern!” have been replaced with memes of “Ridin’ with Biden.” I don’t like to state the O B V I O U S, but most Dems looking for a cool grandpa to hitch a ride to better times with, have already held their thumb out at Uncle Joe’s “No Malarkey Express” this cycle. Look, nothing short of death or a miracle will prevent Joe Biden from being our nominee, it might be wise if Bernie signaled this to his base very soon. Like yesterday,

Bernie Can’t Tell Whoopi Where His “Path To Victory” Went

I feel like I’m stuck in a world of ENDLESS sinister Groundhog Day Style movie remakes. Bernie Sanders will not stop running for President even though he knows there is no way in hell he can win. Just like in 2016. Bernie, that sensitive soul, is super very touchy when anyone presses him on packing it in and letting Biden get down to business, so he has imagined a secret possible “path to victory” that cannot possibly exist. This is NOT the first time. Last time, Bernie fed his tribe of internet warriors honeyed lies about how he was “taking it to the Convention” and somehow convincing the Establishment that he was more electable than Hillary. Like I said, this isn’t the first time. But it better be the last.

Boston Globe:

Four years ago, Sanders’ refusal to accept the reality that he was not going to be the Democratic nominee for president dragged the 2016 primary race with Hillary Clinton all the way to the party convention in July — undoubtedly damaging her candidacy.

Bernie’s second run is a bit like if they built another Titanic, made all of the same shit moves with lifeboats, headed off on the same exact date the next year, clearly saw the icebergs, and rode right into them on purpose. And then were super surprised that their ship began sinking. At this time the ship has floundered, the lifeboats have all been taken, and the SS No Malarkey has shown up to take everyone aboard. Yet, the crew angrily refuses to jump ship, the remaining passengers are cursing Captain Joe of the No Malarkey, and Captain Bernie of Titanic 2.0 is yelling out, “I still have a path to port!” while daring anyone to disagree. The band plays on, Captain Bernie records his Vlogs faithfully, the No Malarkey crew looks on in horror, and the ship slowly inches it’s way down into the Sea. 

Four years later it’s like watching the same bad movie again. In 2020, Sanders has even less chance of overtaking Joe Biden. He’s performed worse than he did in 2016. Since the South Carolina primary, Biden has trounced him nearly everywhere they have faced off, and usually by double digits. Every theory Sanders had about the race — that he could mobilize white working-class voters to support him and that he would bring new voters to the polls — has been proven wrong.

Bernie Sanders is STILL hanging around, trying to find a way to look important in his blood-red room of death while he lures unsuspecting journalists, and others with TV shows, into his lair (remotely) so that he can try to work his stump speech into an interview or two. Not one new word or idea has passed his lips since the last set of primary contests, ones that he lost in an embarrassing defeat, and he seems bored without rallies to give him all that delicious attention. Bernie is desperate for some airtime. March was pretty much a blowout for Joe Biden, though Bernie was slated to win states like Michigan when the month began. By the time South Carolina had finished counting enough votes to give Joe Biden an epic win, with what appears to have been higher turnout than ’08, Bernie’s fate was already sealed. Bernie would not be the Dem nominee in 2020, just as he was not in 2016, the only question remaining was this: How long would it take Bernie to discover he had lost?

Whoopi Goldberg stepped up and took one for the team when Sanders showed up on The View this week, and boy was it HARD to get a straight answer out of Bernie on when exactly he was going to do the math and see he had no chance.

Let me make a few points:

  1. Nobody said anything about how hard he worked for Hillary. She said he TOOK TOO LONG in DROPPING OUT. Bernie loves nothing better than he loves a straw-man, especially one he has carefully crafted with his own energy, and pulled right out of his own asshole.
  2. “I don’t accept that characterization.” You know what? Your acceptance isn’t necessary, Bernie. It’s fucking true regardless.
  3. How fucking much longer are you going to take making your assessment? Cause, you need to go.
  4. You being in the primary has nothing to do with our right to vote, you are not that fucking important.
  5. She didn’t ask what you were doing in the Senate, she asked what your path to victory is.
  6. “Well, for the fourth time, we are assessing–” OH SHUT UP!
  7. I am so tired of Bernie’s stump speeches and lectures, so so so so tired.

Apparently Krystal Ball is my complete opposite; while I think Bernie was being a rude, evasive, party squatting dick, she seems to think Whoopi was as wrong as shoes on a snake, and Bernie is a Prince among men.

Outrageous? Unconscionable? Do you even know what the words mean, Twerp? Also, rude? Krystal, you must not watch your own show, but lol, I find it cute how y’all are over here explaining how Whoopi should have run her interview. I get the sense that Krystal is super rich, cause she is ready to talk to your manager, Whoopi!!!! You better hurry up and ignore her ridiculous ass. Brodude looked ready to CRY about how rude that Black Lady is, although I’m not sure he can say things like ‘Black Lady”; he is still pretending race is not important or acknowledgeable. I tend to believe Ball and her co host, along with the Twitter Berners, fully believe Biden will gaffe out of the race and we will turn to Bernie in desperation. They’ll make us BEND THE KNEE!! It’s all they’ve ever wanted.

Sanders wants Biden to persuade him to drop out by making “make significant policy and personal overtures,” a person close to Sanders told the Washington Post. Putting aside the question of why Biden should make any concessions to his vanquished rival, maybe it’s worth asking if the guy who has come up short in two straight primary elections should be the one making demands. Frankly, what policy issue could possibly be more important than uniting the Democratic Party behind the urgent task of defeating President Trump?

Um, excuse me?

“make significant policy and personal overtures,”

What the fuck does this mean, exactly? Fuck that, why the entire fuck do you want PERSONAL OVERTURES, and wtf does that even entail?

WaPo:

One of the people close to Sanders — who, like the others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to reflect internal deliberations — said Biden would have to make significant policy and personal overtures to Sanders to potentially persuade the senator to leave the race, and to win the trust of his followers.

Are you serious with this shit? Again? What makes your old Marxist, can’t get the Black Vote, lost every County in Michigan, two time primary losing self think that the winner of the primary should have to beg you to quit and then run on YOUR agenda? When has this EVER happened?

The longer that Sanders continues his ego-driven campaign the more ill will he will spread. Continuing this feckless endeavor will only further marginalize Sanders — and the issues he is advocating for — in the eyes of Democrats.

Many Democrats are agonizing over Bernie refusing to exit the race, he doesn’t seem to see the point in dropping out just because he cannot see a path to victory. For weeks Bernie has been reassessing his campaign; that is, between the vlogging, the cyber concerts, and roundtables, yet it looks like he still hasn’t assessed a goddamn thing. What is Bernie waiting for? A miracle? For one of the smears his bros are trying to make trend about Biden to get some traction?

This has become a tired and predictable game with Sanders: he claims to take the high road while his unbowed cheerleaders remain in attack mode. On social media the Vermont senator’s surrogates and more militant supporters continue to lacerate Biden for his verbal miscues and darkly suggest he is in cognitive decline. It was the same four years ago. 

Does he think we’ll all suddenly realize that we can’t live without him? Ha!

Joe Biden, for his part, is NOT waiting for Bernie to reassess his campaign to begin his vetting of VP candidates, so, apparently there is still one person on earth who is not waiting to see what Bernie plans on doing before making a move. Joe Biden has a limited time to get all of his ducks in a row, so if Bernie thought he would be holding Joe back and keeping him paralyzed from taking any unilateral action, he’s shit out of luck. Biden kindly called him beforehand and let him know he’s moving on, and nobody is more thrilled than I am for that prospect. Bernie’s time is growing short, unlike last time where people made a million excuses for Bernie staying in, this time he is a known factor, and we know letting him ride things out until the convention just leads to a loss for us at the polls in November. Bernie, let us know when you’re finished, maybe we’ll even give a shit if you do it very very soon. Probably not, tho. We tired.

These 6 Clips Show How Obama, Never Bernie, and the Establishment (Black People) Made Bernie Lose to Joe

It was just one week out of one of the longest months ever known to man. March of 2020 will go down in history for being the first instance when the world came together, separately, and in their own spaces, of course, for self quarantine or for self preservation, all in order to prevent the spread of a global pandemic from the infected, to the uninfected. Not many people will remember this March as my Birthday month, or as the month that contained one particular week that decided the outcome of this primary election, and possibly, the future of the Democratic party. Almost nobody will remember it thus, yet if you are a Democratic Party insider, a dedicated Grass roots supporter of one of the Dem candidates (still running or not), or a stalwart member of the Revolution, it will be seared into your brain for years to come.

This primary season has been completely different than any primary season there ever was or will be. Not only did we have a, at times, self described Socialist on the debate stage, we also had a Gay Man, two Black Men, a Few Jews,  a Beto Man, a Latino Man, several Seth Moultons, a Black Woman who was also an Indian Woman, a Surfing Samoan Hindu Hippie Soldier, a Billionaire Beating Power-fisting Progressive Professor, an Industrious Inland Lady Legislator, Tom Steyer, The Queen Of the Moon People– Marianne Williamson, and the Math Motivated Automation and UBI Expert in the making, among MANY OTHERS. Way too many.

One by one, these candidates dropped out, were pushed out, went broke and jumped out, and we were down to just a handful of candidates. Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada were Gold for one of the candidates, and quite frankly, many of us were losing our shit as the media dramatized the race and elevated Bernie Sanders as the likely nominee.

Check out this hotter than hot take from February when Bernie Sanders was considered by many (NOT ME) to be the Front-Runner and likely nominee:

Krystal Ball is the literal worst; I waver between liking her and not liking her, depending on who she decides to be in any given year. And who is the clueless, completely wrong, yet cute man-boy next to her? Whoever he is, he is doing the most in his attempt to talk around race so he can focus on class, which just makes it glaringly obvious that race is far more important than these Progressives make it out to be. Not only did I find their analyses completely ridiculous at the time, looking at this clip in retrospect, I literally just wasted a whole entire hour laughing and trying to explain to Mike what the hell is so funny. He doesn’t care.

Ball, in her glorious wisdom, believed that all the portents and signs were there to prove that the Establishment was finally ready to bend the knee. “Bend the Kneeeee!!!” was the theme for her whole segment; according to Ball, EVERYBODY was going to bend the knee. Hillary was going to bend, the Establishment, Reverend Al, MSNBC, and to top it off, Jason Johnson was off the air. Knee Bent!! She was as happy as a Berner on Twitter reporting Dem accounts into suspension. Everything was going according to plan; the Moderate vote was split, Bernie was ahead, Obama was staying out, Bernie was going to coast to the nom, and Dems would push him across the finish line.

They had no choice.

NYT:

Jane King, a financial investor from Boston who describes herself as progressive, began the presidential primary as an avowed supporter of Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. But as Ms. Warren’s candidacy seemed to fade early this year, Ms. King looked elsewhere.

Okay, it’s all good in the hood, baby! That’s a Warren voter, so, surely she’d move to Sanders since he and Liz have similarly left platforms. Bernie was on his way to victory!

She considered Michael R. Bloomberg, Ms. Warren’s electoral nemesis. She thought about Pete Buttigieg, another moderate. Ultimately, in the Massachusetts primary that was a must-win for Ms. Warren, Ms. King voted for former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Um? Whoa, that was quite a surprise! Was Bernie’s name left off of her ballot? I mean, if she couldn’t vote for her beloved ‘Lizbeth, why couldn’t she vote for Liz’s ideological Brother from another mother?

She was simply trying to be strategic, Ms. King admits: She was willing to do whatever was necessary to stop Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont from becoming the Democratic nominee.

HOLY POOP! (I’m trying not to cuss so much. I can legit use foods in place of fake cussing, if you prefer.) I mean, if you watched the clip, you’d see that this is NOT what Krystal “The Genius” Ball told us to expect. This is the ending I was predicting and planning for. Huh. Maybe Krystal should read my feed and see what people who supported everyone besides Bernie had to say about Bernie. Although we are not the “Establishment”, we’ve all stayed at a Holiday Inn Express tho, so we oppose Bernie. Sanders’ movement is an online phenomenon that made it’s way to the streets; kinda, well, to your local arena in White neighborhoods, mostly. So, we online people have been watching The Revolution with feelings ranging between mild annoyance to bitter hate and furious rage. Me personally? I just don’t like them. Meh.

“I didn’t want Bernie to beat Elizabeth in her own backyard. But then, it became much more complicated than that,” said Ms. King, 70. “Are we going to have a nominee who could take on the Republican Party? We have to stop Bernie.”

Krystal Ball was ready to battle it out with the establishment, and fully believed Bernie had this thang all sewn up. It was In The Proverbial Bag.

There was no way for Bernie to fuck this up; the moderate vote was split, Bernie had his plurality, it was time to crow about it on teevee.

March was nowhere near as kind to Bernie as February; I’ll take full credit, sure. March saw Bernie’s hopes go from glowing anticipation, to being crushed into dust. The polls had been rather favorable to him; he had pulled even with the black vote, according to some polls, so what happened?

Rarely has political momentum flipped as quickly as it did in the first half of March, as Mr. Sanders lost serious ground to Mr. Biden before the coronavirus slowed their race. There are well-known reasons for the shift: Moderate candidates like Mr. Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota rallied around Mr. Biden. He enjoyed demographic advantages, particularly with black voters. And turnout among young voters and liberal nonvoters did not surge, failing to reshape the electorate as Mr. Sanders had hoped.

Everyone, damn near, dropped out and endorsed Biden. Okay, Pete and Amy did, but it had a big impact along with Clyburn’s endorsement. Biden’s win in South Carolina was the turning point, and in Progressive circles, it was the subject of hilarious (to me) Conspiracy Theories about Mean Obama ruining everything for Bernie.

This was legit hilarious. They never expected that the Democratic Party would come together in various ways to stop a man who has been threatening a hostile takeover of our party for the past five years. Do you hear Emma? She is ready to cry her ass off. Oh my. Can you imagine the fun she is at parties? No? Me fucking either. It’s super clear that the Bernie Journos did not see this coming AT ALL, and they had no plan for how to deal with, or reach out to Dems who were rushing to Biden. Bernie, for his part, is a cantankerous old jerk who didn’t feel the need to reach out to ANY of the Hillary Coalition, because he expected a crowded field all the way to the convention.

For some, like Amy Siegel of Natick, Mass., the anti-Sanders feeling relates back to the 2016 Democratic primary, when she supported Hillary Clinton and believed Mr. Sanders ran a divisive campaign that wounded her ahead of the general election. This time around, Ms. Siegel, 57, initially supported Mr. Buttigieg. But she voted for Mr. Biden in her state’s primary, held on Super Tuesday, days after Mr. Buttigieg dropped out and endorsed the former vice president. Ms. Siegel said she decided to flip her vote even before Mr. Buttigieg exited the race.

Bernie didn’t predict Pete falling on his sword for America and Amy picking up the sword and falling on it too. She and Pete weren’t the best of friends. But, they are both Patriots, so, they did their duties. And all hell broke loose in Bernielandia.

Yeah, I brought Emma back. Her nerdy sweater makes me happy. Also, I love the way she freaks out while trying to maintain her composure. Look how pissed they are at Liz Warren? OMG. I bet Emma cried and cried. Biden spent nothing in some of the states he won, while Bernie spent tens of millions. Also, can I point out a few facts? Emma focuses on a bunch of irrelevant bullshit and has a belief that somehow a nation that chooses someone she calls “far Right” would somehow choose a Socialist the next time. And her evidence is that a “Centrist” lost. Huh?

“What the establishment wanted was to make sure that people coalesced around Biden and try to defeat me,” Mr. Sanders said, days after Super Tuesday, on ABC’s “This Week.” “So that’s not surprising.” But some of Mr. Sanders’s vulnerabilities were self-inflicted, and voter interviews and exit polls from states that held their primaries in March suggest that problems existed on the ground level.

Bernie didn’t really even try to earn anyone’s vote, he had his 30% and that would carry him to victory, why change?

Because you lost with the same group last time and it’s even smaller now?

Cenk. Cenk really was on a good one on Super Tuesday, and it was fucking hilarious. His meltdown was EPIC, and he looked like HE was going to cry too.

Look, y’all.

This muthafucka said “We’re going to have Trench Warfare.” This is why I pretty much ignore all the conspiracy theories coming out of the Bernie section of Twitter; they’ve pretty much signaled they think Joe is WORSE than Hillary, and they abused Hillary until…they’re still doing it.

Ahead of Mr. Sanders’s presidential run in 2020, his campaign did not concern itself with smoothing tensions among voters who supported Mrs. Clinton in 2016. He did not seek the endorsements of many party leaders, who were always unlikely to back him, but could have been swayed from being openly antagonistic to ambivalent…”

Such arrogance.

Ball starts out this segment mocking the EXACT Warren supporters Berners spent about a month bullying halfway to death. Then she decides to, along with her co-host, pick Liz apart bit by bit, and try to strip her of her character, casts aspersions on her motivations, and shreds her integrity as if Liz were nothing more than a cardboard cut-out, not a real person. Hey, I have said many things about Liz Warren, but, GODDAMN. Krystal really didn’t do Bernie any favors whatsoever. These kinds of take-downs and cancellations work fine to get retweets and likes from people who already agree with you, but they don’t make skeptical Warren Democrats feel anything kind towards Bernie and his movement.

Ms. Stone, 63, an educator in Houston, said she “supported Warren because she was progressive but practical, and that’s not what Sanders is.”

Plus, Mr. Biden is, like her, a Democrat through and through. And Ms. Stone said that while she remained disappointed Ms. Warren did not perform better in Texas, the fact that the state went to Mr. Biden was some consolation.

“I wasn’t terribly upset,” she said. “It’s better than Sanders winning.”

Anybody was better than Sanders to many of us. We were willing to bite the bullet for Pete, Amy, Biden, even for Bloomberg and Liz, just not Bernie.

The moral of this story is, don’t be a shady bunch of asshole progs who sneer at the public and attack our favorite politicians, and we won’t coalesce around the one candidate that your group of vindictive, bitter, uppity malcontents finds the most abhorrent. Oh, and stop sending Bernie Sanders out to run in our primary if you’re going to continue expecting us to help you make him our nominee. We don’t LIKE him. And he doesn’t like us right back. And neither do you. And stop trying to extort shit out of us and hold us for ransom, that’s not how we do things. We may have our favorite candidates, but we, in the Democratic Party, usually find a way to vote for the nominee without demanding ransom or expecting them to run on someone else’s policies. It’s down to Biden or Trump; if you don’t vote for Biden, you need to go fuck yourself.

We’re not repeating 2016.
