i am calmer now. i am gonna watch a lot of george carlin later, because he is right. "power does what it wants." if you want something, you gotta seize the power.

FUCK YOU BERNIE SANDERS. FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU.

i just contacted the campaign to ask for my donations back.

i literally told the campaign i didn't want my money going to a spineless quitter. fuck you, bernie. sincerely. we needed a paul wellstone, but we certainly didn't get him.

i will say this. bernie just set us fucking free. he no longer has to feel any need to temper us. that's a thing, i guess.

give em both barrels, folks.

The fact that corporate-owned media outlets aren’t working overtime to exonerate Joe Biden from the rape accusation, opting instead to ignore it entirely, means that somebody, somewhere, knows it’s true.

As #COVID rages, billionaire-backed @hrw@twitter.com is taking credit for crushing new US sanctions on Nicaragua while pushing to escalate Washington’s economic war on Venezuela.

@queenoftheleft The project is no longer a revolution within the Democratic party, but a revolution within the USA. Let's go.

Peak neoliberalism

This is an ex Democratic Party chair wanting to profit off of Biden-themed masks in the middle of a deadly pandemic

These neoliberal Democratic operatives don't even realize how right-wing they are. They think they have no ideology, but it's just capitalism

@BernieOrVest Just got the news. Fuckin' hell. I didn't see this coming. Bernie dropping out.

Fuck. Okay, misery over: let's get to work. We need to reconfigure into an activist network at this point.

someone in ireland or scotland let me come live with you please.

There was zero legitimacy in the Democratic primary. Zero. The DNC manipulated it at every level, then held "elections" in the middle of a pandemic

Now they're trying to coronate Biden without an ounce of democratic legitimacy

Bernie just blew up his leverage by dropping out

i don't owe the democrats a goddamn thing.

i don't owe the united states of america a goddamn thing.

fuck them both.

At the end of the day, Bernie was weak. It's true everything was rigged against him, from the DNC to the corporate media. But he never defended himself against them

He never attacked the Democratic Party, because he made the decision early on to endorse its candidate—ie, to lose

Sad at the death of John Prine. Many years ago, his song The Speed of the Sound of Loneliness gave me some clarity when I urgently needed it.

"It's a mighty mean and a dreadful sorrow
that's crossed the evil line today.
How can you ask about tomorrow
when we ain't got one word to say?"

@mickeybatts Americans prefer fascism to social democracy. This is the simple and hard political calculus. It’s not pretty, but it’s obvious as it is real. The US is stupid and dangerous (you already know all that, I'm just venting).

If Bernie had been serious about winning, he would have had to break with the Democratic Party, attacking the DNC and media

Working-class Americans hate the media and the neoliberal Democratic Party bureaucracy. They deserve nothing but our contempt, not a scintilla of respect
