What’s not to like?” Nader asked Hedges.
“Because he did it within the Democratic establishment,” Hedges said. “He’s lending credibility to a party that is completely corporatized. He has agreed that he will endorse the candidate, which, unless there is some miracle, will probably be Hillary Clinton.”
“So what he does is he takes all of that energy, he raises all of these legitimate issues and he funnels it back into a dead political system so that by April it’s over.”
“That was the role of Van Jones in the last election,” Hedges said. “He was running around, using the language of Occupy — Occupy the Vote — and that is what Bernie has done. I don’t understand. He fought the Democratic establishment in Vermont his entire career. Now he has sold out to it.”
Thats exactly what the complaint against this idiot is. He's spent his entire career doing one thing, and now he decides instead of taking his popularity and contributing it to something that resembles normal working people, he sidles up to the machine.
The machine will eat Bernie alive. We all know this. You don't beat Caesar by playing by Caesar's rules. Only a fool - or a brainwashed die hard partisan- would think that is logical.
Thanks Bernie. You have made every real independent out there look like a fuckin sell out.
