We are still a decent ways away from the Democrat convention, but I believe I should make my thoughts about one of the so-called “frontrunners” known. Of course, I’ve spoken plenty about Bernie Sanders and the Democrats in general, but I do not think I have specifically talked about the reason why I believe that, even if Bernie wins the nomination, he won’t beat Donald Trump.
Now, before I get into that, I wish to point out that I do not think a single one of the Democrats currently running for president has any real chance to beat Trump, including Bernie. However, there are a number of different reasons as to why for each of them.
Amy Klobuchar is straight up unlikeable, much like Hillary Clinton was. Joe Biden has demonstrated an intellectual incapability of being POTUS. Mayor Pete is also fairly unlikeable, but the fact that he is gay might hold him back, even among Democrats (I say this taking into consideration one particular Democrat voter who voted for him in Iowa, found out he was gay, and wanted to rescind her vote for him, so homophobia in the Democrat party might play a part, funny enough) and believes shoving the fact that he is gay in Trump’s face will somehow be effective. Tulsi Gabbard is practically out of the race. Andrew Yang is out of the race. And Michael Bloomberg is practically everything the Left accused Trump of being, and yet they seemingly prefer him over Bernie, despite them not being ideologically different from Bernie at all.
Which brings me to the reason(s) I do not believe Bernie will win the presidency:
First, it’s entirely possible, even likely, that the Democrats will screw Bernie once again and keep him from being their nominee. If you aren’t the nominee of one of the two major political parties, there is virtually zero chance of becoming president, even if running third-party. The closest anyone has come to winning as a third-party candidate is Theodore Roosevelt in 1912, when he ran third-party against Woodrow Wilson and President Taft, and actually garnering more popular and electoral votes than Taft, but the election still went to Wilson. So if Bernie isn’t the nominee this election cycle, I highly doubt he will ever be the nominee in the future, simply due to his age. Bernie is 78. Reagan was 77 WHEN HE LEFT OFFICE.
Second, even if Bernie does win the nomination, there are plenty of variables that one should consider. For one, the Democrat Party may not be willing to support him. This one seems the least likely to me, but I think they really fear he will lose in a landslide due to him being openly socialist and that the country does not want to elect a socialist (which is backed up by numerous polls). That fear may hold them back a bit in their open support, but again, I do think they would, at least outwardly, voice support for Bernie.
Another variable is what Bloomberg might choose to do. He is spending hundreds of millions of dollars in campaign ads, in buying various Democrats’ support (including Stacey Abrams, AOC, etc.) and he has just participated in his FIRST debate in the primaries, having fairly recently entered the race. He certainly has the money to run third-party if he so chooses (though not certain about the likelihood of that, if I’m honest). My point is that Bloomberg might try and screw Bernie no matter what and that is likely the reason he got into the race in the first place.
But above all else, the final and biggest reason I do not believe Bernie will win the presidency is simply because he is weak. And I do not strictly mean physically weak (being 78 and coming off a heart attack doesn’t help him any) but he is an all-around weak man.
Back in 2015, a Bernie Sanders campaign event was interrupted by Black Lives Matter protesters who took Bernie’s microphone. He hardly tried to fight back against such a rude interruption for his OWN campaign event, walked away entirely and didn’t even give the speech he had been planning on giving.
And recently, a Bernie Sanders rally was interrupted by some “animal rights” lunatics who also wrestled away the microphone from Bernie and he just let it happen. Security also took their sweet time resolving the situation, robbing Bernie of precious speaking time in the process as well, as though this is nothing new to them and it’s rather routine for this to happen.
It’s pathetic and speaks to Bernie’s weakness as a person, let alone a leader. Do you think, even for a moment, that Donald Trump would allow that to happen at one of his rallies once, let alone twice? Even Democrats would agree that he would likely kick a protester’s behind if they tried to do that.
Another example of Bernie’s weakness came from January’s debate, where he was maligned as having said something that he claims he did not say to Elizabeth Warren about a woman “not being able” to become president. I’ve already written an article on that subject, but one thing I failed to mention there is just how weak it made him look. Not the part about being lied about, but the part about how he responded to it. He was rather passive. He defended himself, but he stated he didn’t “want to waste a whole lot of time on this, because this is what Donald Trump and maybe some of the media want.” Really? You’re being maligned as a sexist by the mainstream media and by one of the candidates on that debate and your first intuition is to try and fight Trump in some way?
He didn’t even attempt to fight back against Warren’s lack of credibility, which would’ve been like taking candy from a baby. All he had to do was point out how Warren is a proven LIAR and has been a liar practically her entire life as a result of claiming to be Native American and heavily profiting from that lie.
There are other lies as well, such as the lie that she was “fired” from her teaching job because she was “visibly pregnant” when she had previously said in a prior interview that she left of her own merit, saying: “I was married at nineteen and then graduated from college after I’d married. My first year post-graduation, I worked – it was in a public school system but I worked with the children with disabilities. I did that for a year, and then that summer I actually didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an ‘emergency certificate,’ it was called. I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work out for me.’ I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, ‘What am I going to do?’”
She didn’t leave that education job because she was “fired” for being “visibly pregnant”. She left that job because she didn’t have the certification to continue in that job, had to go to graduate school to get that certification if she wanted to return and then came to the conclusion that she didn’t think it would work out for her.
She’s a serial liar, a deceiver and a daughter of Satan (not that Bernie is much different) and yet, he chose not to fight her on those grounds. And it’s not like Warren ever had much of a chance of winning anyway. He wouldn’t have hurt her in the general because she was never going to be the nominee, but he has/had the chance to become the nominee. He stood to lose the most by having that lie be propagated. He defended himself fairly well, but he chose not to take prime opportunity to destroy someone who was maligning him, with help from the media, and gave a weak reason for his fairly weak response.
But even despite all of this – despite the, at this point, plurality in interruptions of his own campaign events and rallies by people who would never get the chance to speak anywhere else; despite the weakness in deciding not to flat-out end an opposing candidate’s campaign while being maligned – despite all of this, there are two major instances that I can think of that make him look especially weak.
One, he chose to endorse Hillary Clinton in 2016. Despite the fact that it was blatantly obvious that the Democrat Party screwed him over in the primaries and practically crowned Hillary their nominee, he chose to ENDORSE the woman who had been in cahoots with the DNC and cheated him out of the nomination. Now, as I’ve said in the past, I think Hillary would still have won the nomination even without the cheating (at least in terms of delegates because she still had more normal delegates than Bernie, though it would’ve been a far closer contest without superdelegates). However, they still did cheat Bernie and keep him from having any chance at all at being the nominee. Without the cheating, he still would’ve likely lost the nomination, but he at least would’ve had a chance. The fix was in from the beginning and he stood no chance whatsoever as a result of the cheating.
Despite how poorly he had been treated by the Democrat Party, he still chose to endorse Hillary. Now, I do not blame him TOO much here. It was still awfully weak, but I suppose I can understand some of the reasoning. It was Hillary’s “turn” to be the nominee after Obama destroyed her chances in 2008, despite how utterly bogus that is and how utterly corrupt it makes the DNC look (not that that’s any surprise to anyone). If he had tried to run third-party against Hillary, allowing Trump to win by a far bigger margin, he probably would’ve been given the Clinton Special. He might’ve been Epstein’d before Epstein. Plenty of people also expected her to win against Trump, so there wouldn’t have been much point in trying to fight her, especially if people believe she would’ve been the next POTUS.
So I can sort of understand why he would choose to endorse Hillary. Still made him look pretty weak (just not endorsing her would’ve been better), but I get it.
However, I cannot possibly understand what he recently said about the Democrat nominee for this election cycle.
During a town hall on CNN earlier this week, Bernie said of Bloomberg: “I do think it’s a bit obscene that we have somebody who, by the way, chose not to contest in Iowa, in Nevada, in South Carolina, in New Hampshire, where all of the candidates, we did town meetings. We’re talking to thousands and thousands of people, working hard. He said, I don’t have to do that. I’m worth $60 billion. I have more wealth than the bottom 125 million Americans. I’ll buy the presidency. That offends me very much.”
He added: “I think we’re going to take a look at his record. And there are a number of things about his record that I think the American people may not know. As the mayor of New York City, he was very aggressive in pushing so-called stop and frisk… So, his policies humiliated and offended hundreds of thousands of people, and I think that is something that is worthy of discussion.”
So far, so good, right? It sounds like he is making his thoughts known about Bloomberg and that he doesn’t like the guy, right? He sounds like he is willing to put up a fight against him, right? Well, he later said: “[If] Mr. Bloomberg wins, and I certainly hope he does not, I will support the Democratic nominee.”
… Really? After all that’s been happening. After the numerous times you’ve gotten screwed by the Democrat Party. After voicing all your concerns about Bloomberg and how he is quite literally the very crony capitalist you claim to loathe and actually believe should not have the possibility of existing… you are going to support him if he wins the nomination? Are you freaking kidding me?
Of course, I believe the reason for this is he is trying to negotiate with Bloomberg, essentially saying: “I’m willing to be bought out of the race, but the price has to be fairly high.” There is no reason, before the convention happens and all the votes are counted, to say “I will support the nominee.” That’s a decision one can come to afterwards, but saying this now shows that he is both weak and willing to be bought.
But do you see why I say he is weak? Bloomberg hasn’t even outright won against him yet and Bernie is willing to say he will support a guy he clearly thinks is racist and should not even have anywhere near as much money as he has.
Again, I can understand not trying to get in Hillary’s bad sides, and even somewhat could understand endorsing her, even after the poor treatment he received from the DNC. But now, there is no candidate who has their “turn” to be the nominee. Bernie isn’t being screwed because it’s someone else’s turn. He’s being screwed because the Democrat Party doesn’t want him within 10 feet of their nomination. And yet, despite that b.s., he is willing to support the Democrat nominee, even if it’s Bloomberg, clearly not because he likes the guy, but because he is both weak and can be bought for the right price.
This is why Bernie will never be president. The only advantage he has is his grassroots base, which isn’t even anywhere near as big as Trump’s grassroots base. He is the only candidate I’ve seen be able to draw in big crowds on the Democrat side, but that’s only been a fairly recent development and the crowds pale in comparison to Trump’s.
Bernie Sanders will never be president because he simply doesn’t have the guts to do it. He is a very weak man who would be destroyed by Trump in the debates to the point the Democrats will try and impeach him for the murder of Bernie’s campaign.
Bernie is too weak of a man to be able to become president. He just doesn’t have it. Not that it bothers me in any way. The guy is a communist and if he never wins the presidency, that’s only good news.
