I agree with your points about the corrupt and I believe unfixable Democratic Party----the duopoly/oligarchy and yes, I believe murderous system that calls the shots (literally and figuratively) in the u.s.
With that said I did hope there would be momentum for Sanders supporters. You might say that I was duped! So be it, I was.
There was a time after his early victories in the presidential primaries I really believed (I know, I was delusional) things could move in the direction of change . .
I thought the whole “us, not me” thing was gaining traction and power.
But the power structure of the Dem party is massive as you know.
And self proclaimed neoliberal and/or willfully ignorant voters who vote blue no matter what do not want to see how horrific the Clintons (et al) were and still are to this day.
Obama, together with Jim Clyburn helped swat away —as if it was just a pesky gnat— any progressive momentum.
And I’m talking about momentum of people that endorsed Sanders before he dropped out in April:
That is a huge list.
BUT---- the Dem PTB would not allow this to happen. They simply “waved away” the pesky progressives as Bill Clinton chuckles about in this speech he gave at the Lewis memorial service in link below.
This is how empowered, entitled, and pathological they are.
It is right here in these nauseating words of Bill Clinton (rapist, predator, neoliberal POS):
At the memorial service for John Lewis, Bill Clinton specifically thanked Jim Clyburn “for ending, with a stroke of his hand,” the Bernie Sanders campaign when he and later Barack Obama united the Democratic Party establishment, not in an effort to elect Joe Biden, but to use Biden to block Bernie Sanders While none of this is a surprise to progressives, establishment figures and media denied their was any anti-Bernie coordination. But this remark by Bill Clinton shows otherwise.
