Completely true. So why do you insist on ‘transforming’ the Democratic Party when all the evidence shows it’s incapable of changing. You couldn’t even get progressive Keith Ellison elected DNC head. You could easily build a third party, as your supporters keep urging you to do, that represents the interests of the 99 percent. Sanders won’t do that because he all he wants is to become president. He’s still living under the delusion that he will be nominated by a party that he’s not even a member of. He obviously thinks the easiest path to the White House are through the Democrats. That is not the thinking of a “revolutionary.” In fact, Sanders rarely uses that term anymore:
Since the Democratic Party lost the 2016 presidential election, the party’s establishment has suppressed all calls for reform from progressives. Though the party appointed Sen. Bernie Sanders as its head of outreach, most Democrats continue to treat him and his supporters as unwelcome outsiders. In a recent speech, Sanders provided progressives with insight as to how to advance their values against an inept and increasingly out of touch Democratic Party.
Bernie you are completely delusional in believing you could transform this Republican-lite party:
But I don’t want anyone here to forget that it was a Democratic president, not a Republican president, who deregulated Wall Street. It was a Democratic president who made the first major initiatives in disastrous trade policies,” Sanders explained in reference to former President Bill Clinton, who enacted several policies that hurt working, middle class and low income Americans. “Let’s not forget that either. So, they’re angry, and they look for an alternative.”
Fact is, Bernie Sanders is using his loyal supporters for his own selfish political ambition.
