Sanders Stumps for War Criminal, Racketeer, Perjurer Hillary

Sanders Stumps for War Criminal, Racketeer, Perjurer Hillary

by Stephen Lendman

He’s on call for occasional cameo appearances for Hillary - mocking what he claimed to stand for while campaigning, proving his lofty rhetoric was phony.

He’s like virtually all others in Washington, promising one thing, delivering another - once a con man, always one, Sanders a deplorable self-serving opportunist throughout his years of public disservice.

He flouts the principles he claims to stand for, a Judas goat betraying his loyal followers, leading them to the slaughter Hillary assures if anointed Obama’s successor.

On Wednesday, he appeared with her at the University of New Hampshire, his mission to con students and youths to support a presidential aspirant belonging in prison, not any public office.

He helped her promote the illusion of tuition-free public college education for students of families earning less than $125,000 annually if she succeeds Obama.

Chance for it becoming reality under any duopoly power candidate is nil. Nor is relief from onerous student debt bondage coming. Prioritized neoliberal harshness mandates social justice erosion en route to eliminating it altogether.

America’s resources increasingly go for militarism, war-making, obscene corporate handouts, and hardening the nation’s police state apparatus.

Supporting Hillary assures more of the same on steroids, Sanders a convenient puppet, supporting what demands denunciation. 

He and Clinton back an imperial war agenda, risking direct confrontation with Russia, China and Iran, possible nuclear war on her watch if she bests Trump in November by fair or foul means.

Sanders made himself a laughing stock, a first class scoundrel, his rhetoric sounding increasingly hollow - buffoon-like blustering “(i)s everybody here ready to transform America?”

“If we are prepared to stand up to powerful and wealthy and greedy special interests, there is nothing we cannot accomplish…”

Touting progressivism rhetorically while supporting a war goddess, racketeer, perjurer, Wall Street tool shows what he really stands for - a man of special interests, not vital public ones, a shameless backer of dirty business as usual.

Bellowing an “imperative (to) elect Hillary Clinton as our next president” destroys his phony populism. His so-called political revolution is hot air, empty promises, unrelated to vitally needed social, political and economic change.

He’ll likely fade to obscurity once past November 8. Will millions backing him understand they were had? Shifting allegiance to Hillary would show an uninformed electorate consistently harms its own self-interest.

Supporting either duopoly power aspirant for the nation’s highest office assures the triumph of monied interests over all others.
