We Must Think Strategically
www.invidio.us

The change we need will not happen tomorrow. But it is important that we maintain our vision and continue to fight.

When it comes to strategy, Bernie’s no Solid Snake. Too bad he didn’t think strategically and kneecap biden with, I don’t know, his record on literally anything.

The video was kind of interesting though. The opening bit where he makes demands. It would be cool if he had any sort of power, but here it seems toothless and a little bit useless I guess.

Also, do you buy any of his optimism for a Biden admin? Is Bernie just thinking strategically for himself, like shifting the goalposts (gag) of his crowning achievement and pinning it on this united front victory over trump? Or, does he think he can actually steer Biden’s administration in a meaningful way? Isn’t fucking everyone going to be trying to steer sleepy Joe’s administration though? :/

At least he looks healthy here. It is a good look for our grandpa. He probably hasn’t interacted much with his grandkids since the pandemic began. Hope he gets a chance to pat some heads. However, it sounds like he might be gearing up to get back to work after his vacation.

Have you thrown him in the dumpster of history, or, do you give your healthy looking grandpa a hug?

For me he has served his purpose by getting me to eventually read Marx and Lenin. After the fuckery of Super Tuesday, I stopped following him completely. But I am also not American so don’t feel any attachment towards him whatsoever.

Too bad he didn’t think strategically and kneecap biden with, I don’t know, his record on literally anything.

I am not sure whether he is bad at elections or he was just dancing within the bounds that the establishment set for him. Biden has a massive attack surface and Sanders didn’t exploit any of that which leads me to believe that he just didn’t want to win because of whatever reasons.

Also, do you buy any of his optimism for a Biden admin?

None. Zero. It’s a scam. Biden explicitly supports fossil fuel (carbon-free by 2050) and private health insurance corporations. He is a republican masquerading as a democrap.

Also, Biden may straight up croak before the end of his term, maybe even before his coronation. Don’t know what will happen then.

I think you’re right to say he danced within the bounds of the establishment. That’s what makes his proposals/demands for things that exist beyond those bounds kind of pathetic. He wants it both ways it seems, or maybe he’s learned that it’s the only way he could be a career politician among the libs. It’s just that, when you’re 80-something yrs old, you gotta stop covering your ass and just go for it.

Finally, with all cause to keep it hidden dissolved, Bernie reveals his true power level: he was never a socialist

The Sleepy Joe campaign has still not decided who will be VP and, rather strangely, is hoping for public opinion to help him decide. Unfortunately for them, very few people care enough to say who they like

it’s not like there is any real choice there. they are all centrist democrat career politicians cut from the same cloth, just different aesthetics. two of them are cops (klobuchar and harris).

I mean, he’s consistently supported neo-liberalist causes during his campaigns and during the height of the BLM protests this year he was in full support of the cops. So like, maybe don’t treat him like anything more than a liberal?

I didn’t realize he was supporting cops. :/

all the people who are like “Bernie is our boi! we must vote for him, we’ll save us!” are real fuckin blind to him being the same bullshit liberalism that’s gotten us into the mess we’re in both socially and economically, and he wouldn’t change a damn thing. He’s not a “leftist”, he’s a liberal.

i haven’t paid attention to him since he dropped out. I’m not surprised he’d say something stupid like that though

Not watched this video yet.

I had a quick read of Sleepy Joe’s website and the policies look mostly the same as they were early in the campaign before they announced that Crazy Bernie’s people would be in the Biden bureaucracy. No “concessions” to Crazy Bernie seem to be made

There is also a second list of “recommended” policies jointly made by Crazy Bernie and Sleepy Joe which probably is there to inflate the hopes of people who believe that Sleepy Joe will be influenced or make concessions : https://www.npr.org/2020/07/08/889189235/democratic-task-forces-deliver-biden-a-blueprint-for-a-progressive-presidency

Crazy Bernie supporters should be careful and read the policies on Sleepy Joe’s website rather than putting their hopes into media reports about this Fake News blueprint

A few months ago I tried reading his website’s health care “plan” that the enough_sanders_spam types would always fire back with when ppl complained about Biden not having any plans. I read it twice. I had a friend read it just to make sure. It’s complete gibberish with all of the empty neoliberal buzz words. From what we could discern, he doesn’t have a fucking health care plan at all. Well, there was one part about how he’ll implement an extremely narrow and means tested to oblivion credit system for a small fraction of black people, but that was it.

he’s been successfully defanged and now only serves as a lure for ruling class support. class traitor.

Yeah I should stop hoping, against all evidence to the contrary, that he’s anything but a slightly unruly liberal.

A casual chat.
