It’s done. It’s over.
Bernie Sanders has announced his endorsement for Hillary Clinton; and with that, the Democratic primaries are officially at an end.
I’ve already been talking about this for quite some time now. Before anyone decides to use this article against me in the future, let me say I was a Bernie Sanders supporter from day one. I watched live as Bernie Sanders unofficially announced his campaign last April, I paid for a shirt in the first shipment sent from his Vermont headquarters, and I watched him completely demolish Hillary Clinton in each debate online.
Two things really hurt Senator Sanders in this race: establishment politics and the arrogant and unforgivable attitudes portraying from an isolated base of supporters. It’s time to move past that.
I shouldn’t have to dedicate another post about this. You look at Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and it’s more than obvious Clinton remains the moral choice. Yes, to a progressive, you’re being forced to choose between amputating an arm and watching the world detonate into chaos. Which sounds like something more manageable than the other?
I have the same mentality that the Democratic Socialists of America have towards this situation. Help get her in, judge and criticize movements, and keep a progressive platform as the agenda for the Democratic Party.
With that, I don’t really have the time to rewrite what I’ve written time and time again. Thank You, Bernie for endorsing Clinton to help unite Democrats against Donald Trump. Unfortunately, Sanders wasn’t able to pull off what Obama did in 2008 — especially in the south. But that doesn’t mean progressivism will die for the next hundred years.
I’ve Felt the Bern for many reasons since the very beginning. But now? #ImWithHer.
