This is an incredible pile of spoiled-child elitist tone-deaf claptrap.

The top two issues you list above, the main points that you say Democrats stand for, happen to be the BOTTOM two issues that the American people care about when it comes to voting. The number one issue by far is the Economy. And you Hillbot elitist corpdems just have nothing to offer on that score.

Firstly, you should know that Bernie enjoys an 80% approval rating among Democrats, and a 57–61% approval rating overall, depending on which poll you read.

Secondly, you should know that your Hive Queen Hillary has only a 35% popularity rating, and what’s worse is that if the election were held today, 15% of Hillary voters say they would vote for someone else OTHER than Hillary.

You probably know that the Democratic Party has been decimated in the past 8 years, losing some 900 legislative seats, 2/3 of all governorships, and of course the House and the Senate, as well as the White House.

And yet, you seem to think the problem is Bernie Sanders, who came on the scene just 20 months ago.

The Democrats have a problem with Bernie Sanders because Bernie represents what people want, and the Democrats do not. And they want to keep on NOT giving the people what they want, and Bernie is getting in the way.

Allow me to explain:

The Democrats have built a brand over the past 30 years that is based on being just somewhat less shitty than the GOP. They stopped representing working people and the middle class and instead they represent the effete elitist Liberal class.

Look: Hillary Clinton is worth $153 million and had no real reason to run except that she had been preparing to run for 30 years. It’s the same with all the Democratic establishment. The only thing they have going for them is their own elitist positions, their own connections, their own hubris, and above all, their own wealth:

- Nancy Pelosi is worth $200 Million and has a private jet
- Dianne Feinstein is worth $40 Million and has a private jet
- Claire McCaskill is worth $20 Million and has a private jet

And all three of the above have publicly and repeatedly come out AGAINST a “Medicare for All” single payer health care system.


I mean, Charles Krauthammer and George Will, both stalwart Conservative icons, have come out to say that single payer is inevitable.

MOREOVER: single payer is something that is supported by 75% of Democrats, 60% of Independents and 46% of Republicans. Indeed, 52% of Republicans earning less than $30,000 a year want single payer.

So — instead of trying to woo up-scale “suburban” Republicans who are down with abortion and gay rights, why don’t the Democrats go after those low-income Republicans for whom single payer healthcare is literally a matter of life and death?

I will tell you why:
It is because the Democratic Party is a cesspool of corruption, awash in dirty donor money and run by a cabal of elitist a-holes who really don’t give a sh*t about anyone who didn’t graduate from the right school or intern with the right person; who cannot see beyond the beltway and whose feelings for the “hoi polloi” who live beyond the confines of DC range from careless disregard to open disgust (“deplorables”).

The Democratic Party must either be transformed or destroyed. Bernie represents both of those options, and that is why he is attacked and disparaged by the Media and the Democratic establishment — and by the poor benighted corporate consumers like yourself.
