My very first post related to Bernie Sanders was a plea to Democrats. We have to defeat Sanders, I insisted. I detailed how my call violated the “Vote Blue No Matter Who” meme. I discussed the ugliness of his campaign, the potential for infiltration in his camp by hostile forces and concluded with this sentiment.
As far as I’m concerned, the Unite Blue strategy is a hoax. We are wasting valuable time in our politeness. And while we preserve this false unity, our opponent is gathering strength. We cannot afford to play nice.
That was January 2016. Over the next year or so, I continued to record the development of the Sanders campaign, morphing from Unite Blue to Bernie Or Bust, engaging in nasty tricks and division, lawsuits and hate. I wrote thousands of words, tracking the blot and smear of its existence.
At the same time, I monitored the peculiarities and FEC violations of the campaign’s official PAC, concluding with an Index.
My final observation on candidate Sanders came months after the electoral win of Donald Trump. In this post, I fused together the similarities of the two, concluding that Sanders was Putin Phase I and Trump is Putin Phase II.
Here for my readers’ convenience is a compilation of my thoughts on the 2016 Sanders campaign.
