WaPost: Sanders and his supporters look like desperate dead-enders who canít accept reality

https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2016/05/18/why-the-sanders-movement-is-just-about-dead/

This is the moment of truth for Bernie Sanders and his supporters. Itís the moment that determines whether everything theyíve accomplished to this point is translated into real power and real change, or fizzles into nothing, leaving behind only bitterness and resentment. And right now, the latter course is looking much more likely.

5. The one inside Clinton's towering walls of white privilege and wealth entitlement

 

She might deign to extend a small blessing unto her meager unwashed subjects, if they only but pledge fealty to her.

Alternately, we could keep collecting Delegates and translate that into actual power at the convention. We don't have to get Sanders nominated to impact the platform and direction of the party, and that's what scares Clinton supporters so badly.

6. The press is turning on him after his weak response to Nevada

Couple that with Hillarys insurmountable lead
in pledged delegates and only the hardcore true believers
still think he has any hope at all.

A few months ago I would have guessed Bernie would
graciously accept his defeat and start trying to wrangle
some influence on Hillarys agenda.

I really don't think he'll do that now.
He'll probably continue his slash & burn rhetoric
until he renders himself completely irrelevent.

10. You seem to have the sequence confused.

 

The press turned on him with a pack of lies after the NV convention was rigged and his people protested. Then he made a very strong response and they don't like that either, but how is that surprising?

14. Yeah whatever.

The media spotlight has been on him since his response.

Regardless of what you think it's been almost universally negative.

He was already losing the support.
His fundraising is way down and he's not making up any ground
in pledged delegates.

The SDs aren't going to flip.

His more enthusiastic supporters can scream and yell all they want.

Bernie is not going to win the nomination.

You should be embarrassed for posting it here.

9. Its too late already

 

They know he is not going to win so they will go all out to destroy the monster Bernie created in his fever dreams.

The hated Democratic Party/Oligarchy.

Trump the 1%er billionaire and the fucking republican party will LAUGH at the foolishness of the left as it finishes the job Reagan and Bush started.

And fuck the world as well because the insane will be in charge of the biggest war machine ever known to man!

Good job Bernie!

12. Sooooooo, supplicate at the feet of blatant hypocrisy and corruption for "real power"?

Even I know pawns have no power beyond against other pawns.

13. Thank you for posting this. Paul Waldeman from WAPO is an effing joke.

HRC and the DNC will never allow real change. In fact they are campaigning against it.

Bernie may be able to negotiate a few things, but not "real power and real change."
