Sanders Supports Clinton

Sanders Supports Clinton

by Stephen Lendman

Holding back on officially endorsing her, the presumptive Democrat party standard bearer, belies his earlier saying “if (she’s) the nominee, I will certainly support her.”

Support = endorsement, so why stop short of admitting it. Sanders’ reasons ring hollow. So does his empty threat about waging a convention floor fight over Democrat platform policies.

He’s part of the dirty system, supporting what he claims to oppose, more hypocrite than populist, turning truth on its head, claiming “the Democratic (sic) party stands with the middle class, stands with working families, and is prepared to take on Wall Street and the big money interests” - the same ones his voting record shows he supports while claiming otherwise.

Money controlled duopoly power runs America. Democracy is pure fantasy. Republicans and Democrats are two sides of the same coin. Not a dime’s worth of difference separates them, waging war on humanity at home and abroad.

Sanders is a con man, a despicable character, a phony populist - pro-war, pro-imperial lawlessness, pro-dirty business as usual, saying one thing, doing another throughout his 30-year public career, fooling millions with empty rhetoric, promises he’d break if elected president.

Clinton represents pure evil, a Wall Street/war-profiteers dream, a threat to world peace. Supporting her shows where Sanders stands - on the wrong side of issues mattering most.

Asked if he’ll officially endorse her before next month’s Democrat convention, he all but indicated yes without admitting it. Hypocrisy defines him.
