“Bernie or Bust” – Over 50,000 Sanders Supporters Pledge to Never Vote for Hillary

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 11.06.03 AM

One of the things I mentioned in that piece was the fact that a significant number of Sanders supporters will never vote for Hillary. This sentiment is so intense there’s even a website advocating “Revolt Against Plutocracy” that is collecting pledges from Sanders supporters to vote Green Party should Hillary get the nomination. This is a brilliant strategy since a third party vote makes it much easier to quantify the exact numbers of people revolting against the DNC. 53,000 voters have already made the pledge.

What’s worse for the Democratic establishment, I’m consistently encountering commentary from Bernie supporters that they would rather vote for Trump than Hillary. While this won’t represent the majority, it’s likely to be material. In contrast, there probably aren’t more than a handful of Hillary supporters who would vote for Trump over Bernie. This is one reason Sanders is a much stronger general election candidate than Clinton.

    I used to advocate a vote for the Green Party but its policy on Palestine-Israel treats both sides as equally culpable, e.g a Jill Stein government would sanction and isolate anyone who breaks a ceasefire.

    Well, considering that it is Israel that probably breaks the ceasefires but blames Palestine (using false flags or total control of the MSM to spread lies) then it’s easy to envisage a Green Party doing the bidding of Zionists.

    So I would suspect the Greens as being as Zionist as the next “man” in the White Office.

    The system is dead — spoil your vote.
