The stakes are high in the epic battles brewing in NYC, on both sides. The Dems up dey are fighting for 291 delegates, with 247 up for grabs. The Clintons have already secured the support of about 44 ‘super-delegates’. By now the Clinton camp would have thought that their obvious shoo-in for the nomination would have been a fait accompli. But a near octogenarian is attempting to ensure that only one Clinton would ever be able to discharge seminal fuels within the oval office.
On the DNC side, we must agree that Bernie Sanders is the lesser to two great evils. For in this less than perfect world we are told, ad infinitum, that that is the best we can dare to imagine. This is false of course, and there are other more attractive options.
Firstly, we must consider allowing the entire system to collapse. This obvious option is likely, sooner or later, with or without the help from any of the actors involved.
Secondly, if the Clinton people and DLC democrats continue their electoral shenanigans, Bernie must let it be known that he will strike a blow into the very heart of the party. Letting it die on the vine by mounting as a third party candidature. He cannot behave like Jesse Jackson and corral tens of millions of voters into the arms of an untrustworthy Democratic Party apparatus. The Dems have been the graveyard for all progressive movements within the US of A. It is where social movements go………………..to die!
Thirdly, efforts must be catalyzed to force Kaiser Drumpf to behave similarly on the Republican side, throwing their party too into an inevitable breakup. Certainly it does not deserve being considered a national party, based solely on its positions over time.
Some of us have long been weary about much of Bernie’s political tactics, even strategy. His reservations about launching frontal attacks on Clinton have been particularly troubling. We have communicated that message through Cornel West. Since then we have witnessed some aggressive movement in the ‘right’ direction but much more could be done to slay ‘the dragon lady’, politically, of course.
Though he has a history of being one of the few high-profiled ‘White’ men to support Jesse Jackson in both his 1984 and 1988 runs, it remains incongruous that a Clinton could pretend to have a better inside track to ‘Black’ folks and their votes when as a practical matter most of Bernie’s political positions are more aligned to African-Americans collective thinking than Hillary Clinton’s plutocratic, neo-liberal, racist, Zionist, warmongering rhetoric and actions.
Clinton is a known murderer of world leaders, a known genocidaire of the Palestinian peoples; a carpet kisser; she is complicitous in imposing a fake political marriage on the American people; a criminal who caused the death of a diplomat, and others, in Benghazi when her State Department oversaw the stealing of Libya’s weapons for transfer to al-Qaeda and ISIS, for the creation of the present confusion in Syria; the overthrowing of duly elected governments in Honduras, Ukraine, Venezuela and elsewhere. Indeed, the crimes of the Clintons will require forests to properly detail. Save the forest, defeat the Clintons.
Bernie has won 8 of 9 recent contests. Even the one he supposedly lost has revealed evidence of Clintonian rigging. As a non-religious Jew, he has called for evenhandedness in relationship to the Palestinian ongoing genocide. His is a revolutionary position which goes counter to the demands of AIPAC, popular media and all the central narratives emanating from Washington.
This is the first time Hillary Clinton has had a real fight for anything. She walked out of the White House and was given a Senate seat having not ever holding a elective political position of any kind, lower rank, even as dog-catcher. In that political game participants are generally expected to start at the bottom and work their way up, not Hillary!
Based on that largesse, Hillary Clinton then felt deserving of the highest political office in the land. In that process it was fair game for the Clintons to spew racist, dog-whistling slogans, against Obama. How dare that ‘Black’ boy attempt to impede the ‘mighty’ Clinton, DLC machine?
Now the Bern has a chance to prevent unparrelled levels of immorality from winning political power, again. And ‘Black’ people, as relentlessly loyal Dems supporters, consistently in the ninety percentile, have the collective power to slap this wicked woman in her face with a Bernie victory in NYC next week.
Even after that humiliating defeat it will continue to be painful to see people like the mother of Trayvon Martin, the mother of Sandra Bland, finding cause to support the woman who call ‘Black’ men predators, sat in the White House while her husband put ‘Black’ men, in their hundreds of thousands in jail, just to prove to ‘independent’ voters that he was hard on crime. Hillary Clinton just sees ‘Black’ people as chattel who can be brought to do her bidding but she will NEVER talk about taking the constitutional measures to avoid more “Black’ mothers’ suffering.
The much larger ‘Hispanic’ community has no reason to vote for Clinton either. As Secretary of State she joined with Obama in deporting hundreds of thousands of ‘Latinos’, dividing families, causing the deaths of many driven into the arms of Coyotes and left wandering in western deserts.
‘I am the Bern’ because in this war against the Clintons, Bernie Sanders is the evil of two ‘lessers’. These are the cards given and now we have a chance to play our hand WE MUST DEFEAT HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON in NYC, utterly and completely! I will prefer to be wrong by support Bernie than to be right by supporting the greatest evil on earth.
