Sanders sinks again: The populist Democrat departs the race just when his message was most relevant

Russia Today – By George Galloway – 8 April 2020

Senator Bernie Sanders, the left-populist candidate for the nomination to fight President Trump in November, has suspended his campaign and instead will seek to influence the party’s program at the forthcoming convention.

Like the Grand Old Duke of York, though with far more than 10,000 men, he has marched his army of young and blue-collar activists – which once looked likely to sweep him to power – up to the top of the hill only to march them down again. Twice.

When cheated by the DNC and the oligarch-soaked party establishment in 2016, he threw his weight behind the now discredited Mrs. Clinton. Not that she felt any gratitude; having nursed her wrath towards him for four long years, she did everything she could to stop him winning this time around.

Now, even worse, he has pledged his troth to a candidate even more unelectable than Hillary Clinton: sleepy, creepy Joe Biden.

Biden was the DNC pick from the beginning, but the caucus and primary season began not just with three smashing Sanders victories but with Joe Biden bringing up the rear – beaten not just by the front-runner Bernie but Tom, Dick, and Harry from the boondocks too.

Then something inexplicable happened. It may take another set of leaks from the DNC to prove this but Biden who looked out of the race was suddenly back in the saddle, with candidates who had beaten him soundly started pulling out and endorsing him. Only the spoiler-supreme Elizabeth Warren, still posing as a leftist, stayed in to split the Bernie bounce.

Whatever happened – whether rigging manipulation, voter-suppression or what passes for divine intervention in the Democratic Party, the guiding hand of Barack Obama – Biden suddenly went from zero to hero, from loser to winner. Even more oddly the more it became obvious that – to put it kindly – Biden’s cognitive decline was accelerating, the bigger he won.

Despite the fact he now faces allegations of rape from a former staffer, he’s just won the biggest prize of all: the endorsement of Senator Sanders.

The Democrats seem to feel that if the so-called mainstream media in America simply ignores the fact that Biden can literally no longer string a half-coherent sentence together, often forgets the names of his closest colleagues, confuses his wife with his sister, doesn’t know which state he’s in or which office he is running for, they can afford to risk him up against the bear-like prizefighter Donald Trump.

Even more strikingly, given that every liberal journalist in America and every Democrat grandee is a zealot for the #MeToo movement, the rape allegations are simply being treated as if they had never been made. No journalist will raise this with Biden, any more than his serial lying over everything – from his civil rights role or being arrested by apartheid cops on his way to try and see Mandela (possibly plagiarised from me, to whom this actually happened) to his academic and political record. Recall that plagiarizing a speech by British politician Neil Kinnock forced Biden out of the presidential race in the 1980s.
