I’m going to start this article out by clarifying that I am 100% pulling for Bernie Sanders. I think healthcare is a basic human right, and our government should be working for the people and not the corporations.
I am on Bernie Sanders’ side!
That being said… You Bernie Bros need to chill the fuck out.
A little bit of in-house squabbling doesn’t eliminate the fact that Trump is the true enemy, here. Don’t lose focus of that. Don’t cry and refuse to vote. Focus on the big picture.
I’m already getting sick and fucking tired of seeing people claiming that the whole world is conspiring against your boy. Everything that happens, from Pete and Amy endorsing him, to losing Texas on Super Tuesday, is pointed at as proof. Russia secretly working for him is proof. The fact that your neighbor told you it’s a conspiracy is proof. It’s ridiculous.
Have you ever stopped and thought that maybe, just maybe, this is just how the game is played? This outrage is like a sports fan blaming the refs for their team losing. Sure, they may have had an influence. But, if your team had just been better the one or two blown calls wouldn’t have been the deciding factor. You’re unwilling to admit that you simply got outplayed, and it’s embarrassing.
In this case, if you jokers got off your asses and went out and got more of the youth to vote, it wouldn’t matter what the DNC or Russia did. We still live in a Democracy, and votes still matter. Stop bitching and start doing something.
Above all, though, you need to keep things in perspective. I’ll be pretty upset as well if Bernie loses the nomination. And you know what I’ll do about it? I’ll go out and fucking vote for Biden. Because a little bit of in-house squabbling doesn’t eliminate the fact that Trump is the true enemy, here. Don’t lose focus of that. Don’t cry and refuse to vote. Focus on the big picture. Then, after we get Trump out of office, we can address the smaller issues. I’ll be writing more about this, but I can’t stress it enough. TRUMP IS THE REAL ENEMY HERE!
