Bernie’s Foundation Crumbling- Campaign Alumni Address “Sexual Violence” In 2016.

Bernie Sanders is all bernt up!

Former staffers and alumni of the 2016 Bernie Sanders campaign wrote a lengthy letter to Bernie’s office, wanting to set up a meeting with Bernie’s office to address the climate of “sexual violence” that took place during the 2016 primary season. They labeled the situation as it developed “untenable”, and “dangerous”. They made specific reference to a pervasive culture of toxic masculinity

More than two dozen women and men who worked on that campaign participated in the letter’s crafting.

“In recent weeks there has been an ongoing conversation on social media, in texts, and in person, about the untenable and dangerous dynamic that developed during our campaign,” they wrote.

It’s about time.

This letter is not only a huge nail in undead Bernie’s coffin. It is also solid proof of something we’ve been waiting a long time for; namely, that the 9 of 10 Sanders supporters who went on to vote for Hillary Clinton in November of 2016 have inside them the moral capacity needed to assert themselves and make their voices heard on this incredibly important matter.

We’ve been hoping for years for this because it had been getting really hard to keep respecting those who kept on supporting Sanders through it all.

For three years now, we who occupy the sane center of America’s political spectrum have been forced to watch as a new type of critter, the Bernie Bro, crawled up out of the primordial filth to start spewing all over the country’s national dialectic. You couldn’t get through ten posts on your Facebook timeline without seeing some line of anti-Clinton conspiracy hatred slathered somewhere around a #BernieOrBust hashtag.

Nor has this tendency generally improved; this is clearly evidenced by the recent torrent of Bro slander unleashed against Beto O’Rourke.

It has been so disgusting that I know many people who will not now even say they’re on the left at all. They’ll say only that they are moderates. That is because their revulsion to the psychosis that led Bernie supporters to riot in the streets of Philadelphia during Hillary’s acceptance of the 2016 Democratic Party presidential nomination is so total.

I hope that one day they will heal enough to allow themselves to be brought back around. We need them.

This is the end for Bernie Sanders. His revolution is over, and his foundations are crumbling. Revolution Messaging, his feared social media machine, works for Beto now. Tad Devine is burned up; he was the first witness called at Paul Manafort‘s trial. Bernie’s campaign manager and Trump’s campaign manager were linked inextricably both by fate and Robert Mueller. Chief strategist Jeff Weaver was one of the ones who signed the letter.

It’s over. Time to move on.

This taking of accountability by the mentally stable members of the Sanders campaign will be a big start in restoring strength and unity to the sane center, where the middle class in all nations live.

All of us have known many Bernie supporters who were great people, progressive in the true sense of the word, people who were willing to overlook his lousy resume because they felt the issues he was championing to be so important. In all fairness and sincerity, they were! Income inequality in America really is gigantic. The middle class really is disappearing, we really do need public healthcare, and Norway really does have an excellent system of government- a capitalist one, like every other civilized country in the world.

All of that was valid, and those people who fought for it and still voted for Clinton are honorable, good Americans, just like us. But they have been shouted down by the same people who’ve been trying to shout us down, that noisy, visible, and unruly pack of creatures known as the Bernie Bros.

Those Bros are the ones who revealed the side of Bernie he didn’t want you to see.

The one who said women would prefer to stay home.

The one who said that Planned Parenthood is the establishment.

The one who voted to get lighter prison sentences for rapists.

The one who penned rape fantasy essays in the ’70s.

The list goes on ad nauseum, but one thread remains the same. This is a man who never, ever, in his whole twenty-eight years in the Congress, did a thing to champion black issues, women’s issues, LGBT issues, or really any issues except ones directly concerning white men like him. He also renamed two post offices.

Remember those last set of 2016 Democratic primary debates? Both presidential contenders were fiery, and passionate, which was only to be expected in what had, until that point, been a highly issues- focused and progressively driven primary. But once Bernie started losing, he got out and out rude. Rather than taking the opportunity to renounce the extremities of misogyny committed by his supporters, his performance gave weight to the concern Paul Krugman expressed back then: “Bernie is becoming a Bernie Bro.”

During the debate, Sanders interrupted Clinton again and again, at one point even throwing out a long “excuuuuse me” while wagging his finger. When not interrupting, he sat there smirking and making faces while Clinton spoke. At one point, he was seen muttering a sarcastic “OK.”

Imagine how this would play out in a general election! Imagine how Trump would beat us over the head with this!

We have just finished seeing the end of the Year of the Democratic Woman. Nearly a hundred women across America just won midterm elections. And women have for years now been dragged savagely through the mud by the maniacal supporters of Bernie. If the choice was Trump vs Bernie, how better than to thoroughly demoralize them? What a win-win for Vladimir Putin.

During the election, one of our contributors was told that they hoped she was gang-raped, due to her refusal to support their chosen master. And on the subject of rape, look at what Bernie himself wrote on the subject! Just don’t look right after lunch. They might as well have invited Harvey Weinstein or Bill Cosby.

Quoth St. Bernard,

“A man goes home and masturbates, to his usual fantasy- A woman tied up, a woman on her knees, a woman abused. A woman enjoys intercourse with her man- as she fantasizes being raped by three men simultaneously.”

“Have you ever looked at the StagManHeroTough magazines on the shelf of your local bookstore? Do you know why the newspaper with the articles like ‘Girl of 12 raped by 14 men’ sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?”

It’s clear Bernie knows to what they are appealing, at any rate, and why not? He always has the answers, to everything!

Watch for the moniker ‘Rape Fantasy Bernie’ to join the ranks of Lyin’ Ted and Little Marco. This is all to say nothing of the other baggage he comes with; the list is so long it’s taken over a dozen articles for this organization even to begin touching it. Here’s a timeline compilation on Bernie’s bull from Medium; if you’ve got three days to spend reading, knock yourself out.

It would be the biggest disaster in the history of the Democratic Party, Nixon vs. McGovern all over again.

We have always known and believed that most of his supporters are not the kind of people to permanently turn a blind eye to all this, and it’s a big relief to see them start asserting their awareness. They should know that they have compromised themselves severely over the years by remaining silent while all this went on for basic political reasons, e.g. they didn’t want to hurt Bernie. They should be commended for finally realizing that in this issue, Bernie has hurt himself and that the topic has needed addressing.

They should be deeply commended for putting this plan into action, and actually writing that letter. Sexual violence. That’s heavy.

Last year, Millennial Democrats addressed it ourselves, when anti-Semitic organizer Linda Sarsour invited Sanders to be the keynote speaker at the Women’s March. There was an outcry over that so huge that Bernie backed out as fast as his legs would carry him so that people would stop talking about this.

The choice of Bernie Sanders was an insult to every woman everywhere.

This year, Chicago won’t have the Women’s March, because they found out what Sarsour really is. Until she is gone, there is no Women’s March. A California Women’s March has been canceled as well, this time because of racial issues that have never been addressed by these rabid supporters of Bernie Sanders.

Just as we wrote last year, we need to Occupy the Women’s March, but that’s another story.

Perhaps after he fails to change, and they come to understand he’s been this way for sixty years and isn’t changing, they’ll make the next logical step, and come back over to our side, where nothing but welcome awaits them.

The next words are for all sane supporters of Bernie Sanders- Come back to us. We will embrace you.

By all means, go ahead with your plan to convert and reform Bernie, and the climate of “sexual violence” that takes place around him. If you succeed, it’s the best thing for America and the human race. Every person who becomes a champion for the rights of women, and everyone else, has done something to promote a better world. This would also mean we get to look forward to hearing him take full public accountability for six decades worth of chauvinism.

He’d better get started.

Our predictions for your success, however, are sadly not very bright. We Democrats have been trying to reason with Bernie for many years, but the kind of guy who said JFK made him nauseous is not likely to align precisely with traditional liberal and progressive goals. If and when he fails to achieve in this, the modest task that is his charge, give us a call.

This is being written on New Year’s Day. 2019 is here, and the halfway point of the Trump presidency will be crossed in just under three weeks. The end is in sight. We need to win next year and rid the country of Donald Trump.

Let us now come together once and for all to pick a leader who can guide us through the storm. And let us realize, once and for all, that Bernie Sanders is not it.

Sex Offenses and the Senate Don’t Mix- Say No to Roy Moore.

Alabama’s perverse and disgusting Senate candidate, Roy Moore, is still refusing to step out of the race. He remains unapologetic and has repeatedly lashed back on Twitter at Republican detractors like Mitch McConnell, who he feels has let down conservatives. All the while, the scandals just keep rolling in.

Chomo, by the way, is slang for child molester.

Earlier today, a fifth accuser, Beverly Nelson, stepped forth to tell the story of how she was defiled at the hands of this awful human being. McConnell, for his part, says he believes the women. His presence in the halls of our government is beyond intolerable. Roy Moore’s filth can never be allowed to touch the Senate.

A sex offender can’t get a job in this country driving a bus. How is it he can be a Senator?

Unfortunately, a great many Trump voters do not seem to mind. A definite connection between sex offenders and alt-right conspiracy theorists can be verified.

Take our president, for example. He openly boasted to Billy Bush about grabbing women by their genitals in the ugliest possible way. His supporters didn’t care a lick, and that’s exactly how much Trump cares about what type of man Roy Moore is and whether or not he ought to be in our Senate. His silence on the subject has spoken in volumes and given even more of a green light to his devotees.

Basically, if it’s okay for the President to treat random women like a catcher’s mitt, they seem to reason, it must be okay, period. Too bad we Democrats have been spoiling their good time all these years.

Remember when Senate candidate Todd Akin used the phrase “legitimate rape” during his 2012 campaign?

Milo Yiannoupoulis provides a more recent example. In February, Milo Yiannopoulos resigned from Breitbart News, the alt-right website he’d been a top editor for, after video surfaced in which Milo states clearly that he is absolutely fine with sexual ongoing between men and underage boys as young as 13.

It was enough to make you sick unless you’re cut from the same cloth. This is what led to billionaire Robert Mercer cutting ties with him recently and pulling his interests out of Breitbart in general.

The Republicans love nothing more than to slander their opponents with crimes they themselves are frequently guilty of. Hence Donald Trump, constantly misapplying the term fake news.

It’s interesting, how the people who have spoken out the most about sexual abuse over the years have so frequently been guilty of it themselves. Sigmund Freud called this tendency projection. It was his psychological theory describing the process by which humans avoid dealing with their own issues by attributing them to others.

Earlier this year, the infamous far-right troll Mike Cernovich spoke at Columbia University in New York City about the rise of alternative media. While he was there, some “protestors” showed up with a rather unexpected sign.

The sign in the picture said “no white supremacy, no pedo bashing, no Mike Cernovich” and displayed logos of “antifa” and NAMBLA, which supposedly stands for the North American Man/Boy Love Association.

There are aspects of the conduct of the “Antifa” organization we do not support, but it has to be granted they have nothing to do with NAMBLA.

Gothamist reporter Jake Offenhartz, who actually took the picture that Cernovich tweeted, mentioned in his original tweet that the sign was an “alt-right” plant. This type of manufactured incident often helps the right wing shift the national dialogue to deflect attention off their own perversions. They would like nothing better than to paint Democrats as the party of wingnuts and sexual deviancy.

Republican sex scandals, however, occur at least as often as do their Democratic counterparts. It’s always a riot when one of these breaks loose. The GOP prides itself on its firm commitment to pro-family and conservative values. Jerry Falwell’s Moral Majority comes to mind. All of it, however, has been used to conceal some very ugly truths, and this is the crux of the matter. Sex offenders, fascists, and other horrible criminals have infested the government, through the Republican Party.

When did it become cool, to become a sex offender? Who can stand a rapist? Or a child molester? How is it that we’re even considering letting these old leches hold the keys of power for us? And what does it say, about the men who are turning a blind eye? It is the opinion of Millennial Democrats that there’s a long game here. They want to make it okay for men to do as they like with women again, and for a very specific reason.

In the 1990’s, ethnobotanist Terence McKenna used the term “The Archaic Revival” to describe his vision as to which direction society needs to be heading in, in order to secure a prosperous and healthy future for all humans, instead of just a few. The essence of it was interconnectedness between intelligence. Building bridges, strengthening ties, creating new bonds of cohesion for society.

Perhaps the most fundamental value of the Archaic Revival was its emphasis on valuing feminine energy as being crucial for the forging of those bonds.

All throughout the 90’s, that concept and many others like it emerged, gained potency, and coalesced into a strong movement. We have carried the torch. Millennials have overwhelmingly chosen to embrace the values of diversity that our parents, the baby boomer generation, fought so hard to secure for us before we were born.

We liked going to school with kids of other backgrounds. It made things interesting and fun. We got to know each other. We learned to work together, and that’s what we’ll be doing going into the future. That’s what Millennial Democrats is all about.

These things were largely made possible by the strengthening and unchaining of the power of womankind. Gone are the days when an educated woman was restricted to being either a teacher or a nurse. Reversing that state of affairs is what a great deal of this is about for the alt-right.

Disenfranchising women has been a goal of patriarchal elements of society since before we were writing things down. Believers in a system of hierarchy necessarily need people to lord it over. The well-being of the commonwealth has to fall by the wayside. The few must grow rich off the labor of the many. If everyone’s equal, the pyramid stays flat.

Not long ago, Donald Trump said that things have changed, and now they’re changing back. It must be realized that this is their goal. Televangelism and media combined with a well-polished party line, all designed to bring back the good old days of graft, corruption, and big bosses.

Breaking the back of cooperative, which is to say feminine, societal efforts to bring about a better way of life is therefore of fundamental importance to the new order they’re trying to bring about. This manifests itself in anti-union activities, for one working example.

Hillary Clinton recently discussed the culture of sexual assault, following media coverage of a plethora of new lurid complaints against Hollywood film producer and longtime Democratic donor, Harvey Weinstein.

In an interview with the U.K.’s Channel 4 News shortly after the story broke, Clinton said:

“Look, we just elected someone who admitted sexual assault to the presidency. So there’s a lot of other issues that are swirling around these kinds of behaviors that need to be addressed,” Clinton said on the subject of the Weinstein scandal.”.

“I think it’s important that we stay focused, and shine a bright spotlight, and try to get people to understand how damaging this is,” she continued.

Going forward, we’re going to be doing just that. And the very first step is to help make sure that the only federal building Roy Moore steps into is a penitentiary. If you’re in Alabama, vote for Doug Jones. If you’re elsewhere, then send support every way you can. This fight is about us all, and we are going to win it, together.  Just like we did in New Jersey and Virginia. This #BlueWave is just getting started. Let’s use it to wash this crap right out of American life.
