Remember Jill Stein? The Green Party candidate from 2016? Well, she’s back and she’s recruiting some Bernie bros heartbroken at the crazy socialist’s suspension of his campaign.
On Twitter, Dr. Jill Stein wrote: “Bernie Sanders ran a good race. Now it’s clearer than ever: establishment Dems’ top priority is sabotaging progressives to maintain their own power. [The Green Party] welcomes all who understand that the fight for people, planet & peace must continue. #DemExit.”
Interestingly enough, this seems to be working to one extent or another, as some apparent Bernie bros have decided to hop aboard the Green Party train:
“Thanks, Jill. The Green Party represents what voters under middle age want but are told we can’t have: peace, equality, sustainability. Greens [bring] young people in to politics who otherwise wouldn’t touch it. The messages of hope are much appreciated,” wrote one user.
Another wrote: “Bernie dropped out of the 2020 Election for POTUS so now I’m #DemExitingForever & going GREEN,” coupled with a green heart emoji and a sunglasses emoji.
Another user wrote: “Green party has my vote!”
Now, it’s unclear how successful this bid at getting some Bernie supporters to vote in protest against Joe Biden will be, and there is still much time before the election occurs, but suffice to say that plenty of hardcore Democrats are livid with Stein. Given the fragility and clear mental incapability of Joe Biden, weaknesses that will be showcased heavily by the GOP throughout the campaign, as well as the fact that, for the second time in a row, the Democrats did whatever they could to block Bernie from being the nominee, I’m not surprised that Democrat voters hoping to defeat Trump come November would be threatened by even the Green Party taking votes away from them.
A few days ago, I wrote a piece about how Obama’s own campaign manager noted that Trump would win come November simply due to his strong base. Joe does not have a similar base to Trump’s and the Democrats are insufferable, even to Bernie bros, so there is a very real possibility that plenty of Bernie supporters will defect, either voting for Trump (I’ve also written about this), voting for a third-party candidate that has no chance of winning anything or staying home on Election Day.
So it’s no real surprise to see hardcore Democrat voters angry at Jill.
One user wrote: “Remember every green vote is as good as voting republican.”
I see this as an absolute win.
Another user sarcastically wrote: “I’m voting Green because I like Trump as well!!”
A perhaps unsurprising amount of Democrats brought up Russia as well:
“At least Biden never broke bread with Putin you Trader!” I think he meant to say “traitor” but auto-correct might’ve gotten in the way.
“Da, is good, this tweet. Vlad wants to know where to venmo the rubles,” wrote another user.
“Oh, go take a stadium of seats, Russian Asset.” You have to love it when Democrats accuse someone of being a Russian asset just because they are standing in the way or in opposition to them. They’ve gotten so used to calling people racist that “Russian asset” is now their last line of defense when they have no argument left to make.
Now, Jill Stein was a suspect of the 2016 Russian collusion hoax, with reports saying that Russia threw ad time into Stein’s campaign to draw away disgruntled Democrat voters from Hillary to help Trump win, but as with other Russian collusion reports, it was unsubstantiated and the reports were from NBC News, part of the cabal of fake news organizations seeking to discredit the Trump administration and destroy it.
But it’s still quite evident that, even three and a half years later, the Russia hoax is still in the minds of low-information voters who actually believe the b.s. the fake news media had been selling. Even despite the complete lack of evidence, even despite the Mueller report not finding anything about Trump colluding with Russia and being rather explicit about that fact, they still believe that there was Russian collusion at play and it might happen again this year.
Joe Biden is a weak enough candidate that Jill Stein trying to draw in Bernie supporters is a threat, and it very well might be to an extent. As I stated in a previous article, 15% of Bernie supporters say they will vote for Trump in November. Only 80% of Bernie supporters plan on supporting Biden, which is considerably less than what he needs (which is why he is saying that Bernie’s policies will be on the ballot even if Bernie isn’t).
That leaves about 5% of Bernie supporters who will not vote for either Biden or Trump, and could very well jump aboard the Green Party in protest to the Democrats. And again, this is not good for Biden. Trump’s base won’t abandon him and I believe support for him has grown considerably since 2016. As I have said many times in the past, he has proven himself to keep his promises (to the best of his ability, when he isn’t stopped by GOP traitors or the Democrats) and do what he said he was going to do. While there were doubts about those aspects from Republicans in 2016, those doubts have been dispelled in the minds of those who are not NeverTrump, former Republican, traitors.
The candidate who is at high risk of losing support and votes is Joe Biden. Hardcore Democrat voters still living in the Democrat plantation will not abandon the Democrat candidate to be sure, but there are Democrat voters disgruntled with the Party (as there were in 2016) that have either switched to third party or to Trump voters. There are also Bernie supporters who have historically voted for Trump against the Democrat establishment candidate.
I doubt an awful lot of Bernie supporters will choose to vote for the Green Party candidate in November (whoever that ends up being), but any vote taken away from Biden helps Trump. I agree with the guy who said: “Remember every green vote is as good as voting republican.” Only difference is that I see it as a good thing while he sees it as a bad thing.
So Jill Stein has my thanks for doing her part in trying to draw voters away from Biden. Of course, she loathes Trump as much as other Leftists do, but at least her efforts inadvertently are a positive for this country if they are even relatively successful.
