My kink is fantasizing about an old Jew...

...from Vermont... winning the 2020 primary. Unlike some (most?) of the eldergays on here, he's living proof that getting old does not have to mean getting regressive, reactionary and racist.

Bernie has been consistently on the mark. Maybe because he has nothing to lose, but he is speaking the truth these days. Many things can be true at the same time.

R1 - I would argue that he's gotten MORE progressive on this particular issue. Earlier in Israel's war on Palestine, he was more reticent to speak out against their actions. There are some on the Left who still criticize him for not being even more forceful and for using the "G" word. While I personally think that description of Israel's disproportionate actions is accurate, I don't get hung up on the semantics. It just causes inflammatory binary arguments, so I understand why he doesn't go that far.

It's telling that even Chuck and Nancy have been critical of Israel. There aren't more mainstream Dems than them.

Sorry, that should have read "There are some on the Left who still criticize him for not being even more forceful and for *NOT* using the "G" word."

He's irrelevant.

He's a Jewish Uncle Tom, ranting from the safety of one of his several Vermont mansions while the Israelis run for the bunkers several times a day.

And of course he's running in 2028 again. They'll run his corpse if they have to.

It means getting a second Dachau.

R7 - That made me genuinely laugh. You clever clogs tickle me.

If Bernie had won the primary in 2020, Trump would be president now and Gaza would have been nuked. That’s some kink you have there.

If Bernie had won the primary in either 2016 or 2020, I wouldn't have voted in the general. He would've been as awful a president as Trump.

OP look up the g-word definition. Then read the charter of Hamas. Israel has gone too far, but Hamas openly states the “g-word”.

by Anonymousreply 11May 25, 2024 10:10 PM

Oh, I'm not some Hamas apologist. I don't think of them as "freedom fighters" who sometimes go over the line. They're largely a terrorist organization and their methodologies have only made the situation for Palestinians worse. But let's also not pretend that Netanyahu has deliberately helped Hamas stay in power and even indirectly helped fund them because having them as an enemy, rather than the weakened Palestinian Authority has been good politics for him for decades now.

Wonders never cease!
