The time has come for Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VM) to come out and bash Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) on CNN because there aren’t many other options. The left couldn’t get a hold of the Senators by having President Joe Biden, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, or others go after them, and Sanders seems to be a good fit.
This isn’t working, of course, because Manchin and Sinema have held firm with their constituents rather than any fringe elements that have been career politicians inside of the Democrat party. Sanders benefits from the left being in charge, so he wants to ensure the Democrats have as much control as possible. Sanders top donors are from Alphabet Inc. ($963,943), the University of California ($903,237), Amazon.com ($781,837), and Apple Inc. ($480,498), according to OpenSecrets.org so federal election changes, as well as radical spending like Build Back Better, will keep the money flowing as long as Democrats are in power.
The Democrats aren’t in power, though, because Manchin and Sinema have struck down Build Back Better, ending the filibuster and federal election control, so Sanders is talking to himself. Nobody’s listening, especially after CNN’s viewers are dropping like flies.
A CNN guest said, “What can Senator Manchin say other than the fact that he is an extremist. He and Senator Sinema are extremists, and anybody that’s hiding behind them is extremists because when you want to put your political concerns over democracy when you serve in some of the highest offices of the land, then something is wrong with you.”
According to most of the Democrat party, you act like an extremist, suggesting widespread election fraud in the 2020 election. Biden just said that there could be election fraud in the 2022 midterm election, so from now on, Biden is a right-wing extremist. Oh, how the tides have turned.
It’s beautiful to watch the left tear itself apart and go after each other. That’s what happens when a single ideology, total control, is unachievable because some in the Democrat party don’t believe that’s what democracy is. Democracy isn’t meant to be a one-party system, and some checks and balances are in place to make sure that doesn’t happen. You didn’t hear the left championing the Republicans who voted for the infrastructure bill, so it’s difficult to take criticism seriously.
Nobody believes in “extremist” and “domestic terrorist” anymore because they have lost meaning. Anyone can rarely back up the terms when they use them against someone.
Chuck Schumer (D-NY) even said that he “would put forth Senate changes to force a talking filibuster,” which would require long speeches. In the name of democracy and protecting Americans from lousy legislation, you go ahead and do that, Schumer, because Democrats are going to be held to the same speaking filibuster that they want Republicans held to.
Schumer also said in 2005 that ending the filibuster would be “doomsday for democracy.”
