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.

Time To Stop Pretending Pete Can Win Over Black Voters

Hiya, Petey! I didn’t really want to be the one to break it to you (Yes I did.), but since the White Penis Patrol in the media won’t shut the fuck up about you, it has to be done. I won’t name names, but, these fools are doing everything from pairing you up with Tulsi Gabbard as your VP to convincing old white folks that Black voters will move your way after you White Privilege your way to victory in Iowa. We know the drill.

So, lately, you have making the rounds and telling us you believe you have time to win over Black Voters. The time for that would have been when you first took office as Mayor, Dear. When you fired/demoted Chief Boykins and didn’t even take time to craft a believable excuse, you pretty much lost THIS primary. What? Did you think we wouldn’t take the word of some random black person whose name we don’t know over your word? You played yourself. We’d take the word of a Black Person in Illinois who has a cousin that lives in a town in your state over yours. The only Black Person we might not have listened to completely would be someone in the style of O.J. Simpson. And even if it were your word or Simpson, I’d be inclined to give him the benefit of doubt, and just call it inconclusive. Why?

You’re Mayonnaise, Pete. Bland, Boring, Oily, and BANNED from my table. You gets no seat, bruhman.

From NYT::

Adrianne Shropshire, the executive director of BlackPAC, a super PAC, said her organization had conducted focus groups of a few dozen black voters in six cities since August. In straw polls of the focus group participants, Mr. Buttigieg has not received a single vote.

Granted, the sample size is very small, I could pull more Blacks through a Twitter poll, but the point remains; Pete ain’t it. I can say, quite frankly, as someone who gave him a chance, that now I even hate his face. If Pete were the nominee, I’d do exactly what I would do if Tulsi we’re nominee. Nothing. Oh, and prepare for the second Trump term, because there is no way in hell Petey Pie can possibly motivate the 62% or so Black voter turnout we will need to defeat the Orange Butt-Plug. I just fell asleep for a second writing that because that is the effect Pete has on me.

Now I know we have a bunch of vote blue no matter who people that believe they run Twitter, and also think they can hashtag their way to victory no matter who the candidate is. They are stupid.

NYT:

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. has 154 endorsements from current or former black or Hispanic elected officials. Senator Kamala Harris has 93. Senator Bernie Sanders has 91. Senator Cory Booker has 50. Senator Elizabeth Warren has 43.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg has six.

Six? You’re raking in the dough from white folks, you’re out here faking support from black folks, You’re getting DRAGGED by Nina Turner, schooled by Kamala Harris, you take suspect ass photos, and all you had time to rustle up are 6 endorsements?  Bro, I could jump in the race and convince more than 6 people that I won’t let my laziness get in the way of my Presidenting.

This shit is suspect as fuck.

More from NYT:

Mr. Buttigieg’s supporters say most black voters and politicians haven’t gotten to know him and predicted that, once they do, his fortunes will improve.

HAHAHAAAHAAHAAA!! HAA! HAHAHAHA!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! Not gonna happen. We already know you. Quite frankly, we have known many of you throughout our time in America, so the last thing we’d ever do is further empower you.

Here is one reason we don’t like you, a video from this Summer.

“Did you just ask me if Black Lives Matter?”

Wow. Wow. Wow. Look how fucking terrible you are. Were you laughing?

Pete: “I’m not asking for your vote.”

Intelligent Black Woman: “You ain’t getting it neither.”

And you ain’t getting mine neither. At the fuck all.

For now, Mr. Buttigieg has so few black elected officials and former elected officials backing him that they could all fit into a single S.U.V.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Go sit your ass the fuck down, Pete!! I legit can’t stand you MORE now.

I’ll just post this again…

Fuck. Pete isn’t the only Buttigieg that black people avoid like he’s the repo-man.

First of all, how the hell do you go to Louisiana and manage to find ZERO black people willing to be in a photo with you? Also, OMG, he said the thing about tearing down the homes of us darkened people. Ooooooo!

See, that’s the thing, tho, ain’t it? I talk about how he tore down Black people’s homes, but I am so self centered, I neglect to mention he tears down AAALLLLL BIPoC homes, and Poor White’s homes too. So, really, Pete had a war on the POOR, black people were disproportionately affected, but, really, the historically BLACK area is the currently non-white + broke ass white folks who you forget are white all the time because white people don’t even treat them like white people area. I’m sure they have a nice mixture of folks’ homes for Peter to tear down and charge them for demolitioning.

An aside: When I was coming up and in my early 20, I lived around Mexicans, Central Americans, Belizeans (Yes, you have to discuss them separately.), Panamanians (see:Belizeans), Jamaicans, Hmong, Cambodians, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Samoans, Tongans, Hawaiians, Armenians (They seem not to believe they are white people, so you have to talk about them separately. I know.), Italians (same shit), Persians (same shit), Lebanese (Separately), Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Haitians, Nigerians, Ethiopians, Somalians, Pakistani, Indians, Native Americans, Europeans, Jewish People, and White People. I hope I didn’t leave anyone out, oh, one girl was from Kazakhstan. She was cool as hell. So, unlike Peter, I made all of my stupidest mistakes on race when I was younger than 35, and yes, I took it all the way up to the line, y’all. I learned how to do better. Now, shit, I just agree that I don’t know shit the fuck all, apologize, move on, and pay attention to what people say about their experience.

Now, out of all of those groups that I have experience with, guess how many I would create large scale plans for that solve all of their 400 year struggles? That’s right. Zero. And not just because I’m notoriously lazy. It’s also because, while I don’t have particularly bad relations with any of them, I don’t know their daily lives. While people are out here doing that thing with Pete that they did when Paul Ryan READ a proposed House Bill and called him a policy wonk… Nobody is really looking at the utter gall it takes for a man to do so poorly with the black people in his own community, then turn around and suddenly have a White Savior Plan named after a dead Black Man to solve ALL of their problems.

Does anyone really believe black people will suddenly believe in Pete?

On that note…

Huffington Post:

CNN political analyst Nia-Malika Henderson later suggested there was “something sort of more subtle that maybe Black people can pick up on that other people can’t.”

Former Vice President Joe “Biden seems like he’s comfortable around Black people, right?” Henderson asked. “And Pete Buttigieg doesn’t seem like he’s spent much time around Black people. And I don’t know how you get over that. I don’t know why he hasn’t really spent much time around Black people.”

Did you catch that?

“I don’t know why he hasn’t really spent much time around Black people.”

Why, Pete? Scared? You were a soldier, Pete!

 

“When Black Voters hear the agenda that I have for black America, and what motivates me to deal with these issues, the response is supportive, it is powerful, and I believe that is going to carry us to success in South Carolina and across the country.”

It grosses me out that you pretend to not know how badly you fucked up on race. And it takes utter gall to suddenly have plans for Black People, especially since you never had a plan for Black South Bend.

 

It’s obvious Pete makes the other candidates a bit nervous. I mean, dude is at ZERO PERCENT with black voters, the most loyal Dem constituency. He got name checked the most out of all the candidates, twice more than Kamala Harris, who was having a great night and always seems to get name checked even if it’s about shit she ain’t even do. Pete’s name checks had a different character to them; patronized a bit by Amy Klobuchar, collected by Harris on his lack of connection with Black Voters, attacked by Tulsi as naive, he was being told he ain’t it all night.

And really, let’s keep it real, the only time he really seemed to be fighting in his own weight class is when he was giving Tulsi Gabbard the old “ground n pound” after she tried to sucker punch him on the Mexico issue. Other than that, Pete ain’t it. He will never EVER EVER be it. Ever. Time to go home.
