Bad move. All of those that supported Sanders can choose to perpetuate the Status Quo and this “hold their feet to the fire” nonsense that is repeated in election after election or they can wake up and recognize that this has not worked for the past 40+ years.

Sanders knows without a doubt that in order to turn things around a bold agenda needed and he knows that this not coming from Biden or the DNC. What he is saying in essence is that progressives do not have a choice but to vote for the Democrats. Not only is that fundamentally undemocratic but he is wrong. They can choose to stay home.

The sell out is complete! And yet, there are those who STILL believe in the Democratic party?

Simply amazing.

To all you Trump supporters I say, “CHEERS BERNIE.”

Exactly my thoughts! You would have thought they would have learned their lesson when Bernie sold out to HRC in 2016 and was instrumental in helping to elect Trump. Are we seeing the same scenario in 2020?

A sad day for what little democracy and hope is left in this country. I feel betrayed by Sanders. In no way does this make Biden more appealing to me.

I knew this was coming, and I have a pretty good idea of the lies Sanders will say. I have no interest in actually hearing it.

Warren dealt Sanders a death blow before Super Tuesday, so don’t hold her up as an example lest I puke. Give her about 24 hours and she will endorse Biden when she gets her payoff position.

If you want to see more fascism in America keep doing what you are doing.

YOU ARE AIDING AND ABETTING THE ENEMY. STOP!! BERNIE LOST. I VOTED FOR HIM BUT HE LOST.
Noam Chomsky endorsed Biden last Friday in an interview with Amy Goodman. He also said another Trump presidency would be an “INDESCRIBABLE DISASTER”. LISTEN TO CHOMSKY FOR GOD’S SAKE! LISTEN TO SANDERS.

Peace, Bernie - you fulfilled your purpose in furthering the discussion adequately. Now, move aside - the movement has surpassed you.

The enemy is as much the DNC as it is the Republicans. The Obama presidency demonstrated that as did the Clinton one before that.

I could not care less who Chomsky supported. He was also a Clinton fan.

I voted Green Party in Canada the for the past 20+ years. This hardly means I was supporting the enemy. I was supporting the Green party. Those that supported “the enemy” are the ones that voted for them.

Me neither. Jimmy Dore was right all along when he said at the beginning of the Sanders campaign, Bernie will be screwed by the dem party and will end up endorsing, and campaigning for, Joe Biden, just like he did for HRC. Jimmy called it exactly and took a tremendous amount of flack for it and now he has been proven right, just as he was on Russiagate being a hoax, Russiagate hysteria being used to call Bernie a Russian operative along with other progressives (Tulsi, Yang), impeachment a farce distraction, Bernie’s campaign ineptitude, and on and on. We’d get a better fighter by electing that nightclub comedian with no ties to corporations or the dem party. Third party time.

“Donald Trump is a disgusting misogynist accused of sexual assault and rape. Being accused, but by fewer women or of less severe acts in most cases, is not a selling point for a candidate. Was no one accused of misconduct by multiple women available to choose to run vs Trump?”

thanks for suckering us once again, Sanders…at least I wasn’t as much a dupe as last time…I had a feeling this was going to happen again…i think people saying you really didn’t want to win, is correct…
However, I will bring a paper bag with me & pull the lever for Biden…oh well

There has got to be a viable alternative to Trump-Biden. Progressives have time to consolidate behind a third option. So many of us find the 2 available candidates unworthy of our votes. Greens, Democratic Socialists, Sunrise Movement, labor unions, the Progressive Party, etc. must join forces to rally behind someone who would actually serve the people. We desperately need a third option.

CD has to stop allowing posts from certain individuals that call those who do not want to vote for biden fascists, shills and liars. Aren’t those ad hominem attacks? We can do better here . . .

Yeah, but the dem party tanked him (Bernie). HE’S just too unacceptable to the hypocritical dem party. Honest to god, the dem party’s hypocrisy would be laughable if it weren’t so deplorable. I have come to understand the right wing revulsion towards the dems. Too bad they can’t see their own corruption, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t right about the dem party. The dem party is a cesspool of rats.
