We at LwC love it when leftists and SJWs turn on their own. So when they attack Bernie Sanders for what they call white male supremacy, we’re going to have a few LULz over it. And yes, Bernie of The Violence of Bernie Sanders Supporters… Comes from Bernie Himself and WATCH: Bernie Sanders Is Dangerously Wrong About Israel vs. Palestine… fame. He’s apparently not woke enough.
Bernie Sanders has taken some heat recently for his remarks to a woman who said she hoped to someday become the second Latina senator and asked him for some tips about getting into politics. His reply, essentially, was that being Latina wasn’t enough. She also needed to “stand up to Wall Street, to the insurance companies, to the drug companies, to the fossil fuel industry.”
It is true that in order to end racism and sexism we have to begin by giving women and people of color a seat at the table. But that accomplishes very little unless/until we listen to them and find a way to work with them in coalition. To the extent that Sanders wants to avoid doing that in order to foster division within the Democratic Party, he is merely defending white male supremacy.
I’m not suggesting that the senator’s agenda is necessarily white male supremacy.
The real punchline here? Bernie was mainly taking a shot at Hillary Clinton. Hillary ran on nothing being a woman and something something glass ceiling. What Bernie was saying? Take a stand on policies that motivate people to vote for you because they think you will improve their lives. You know, those platform thingies. Not just how you identify when confronted with a bathroom sign. As fun as that was, sure.
Because Uncle Bernie didn’t go all in on “Yeah Vaginas” the uber left fart wizards have thrown him under the bus. Probably the Hillary bus that dumped human waste in the street. That’s just how much leftists care. It’s not just enough to toss an old man under a bus, it’s better to have a crap on him for good measure. Two birds.
You’re either winning or you’re learning. So far leftists only seem to be learning they need MOAR identity politics. This is the part where we should just step aside and let them spew their verbal shart over everyone. Get out of the splash zone, yo. Liberals gotta liberal.
