Kity, Kity Kity. You’re so intuitive and perceptive. I can’t tell you how crazy it is. You’re getting an opportunity to see why there is so little advancement here in the U.S. and why change takes so long. These same types of people will sabotage the progress to the very places they claim they want to go. If they don’t get it when they want it, they’ll destroy any and all progress made. It’s why you cannot follow them. It’s why you cannot trust them.
The same thing happened in 2016 with Bernie’s supporters. A bunch voted for third party candidates or Trump instead of Clinton when she was the nominee. It’s the very reason no one wanted Sanders in the race this time. A segment of the people who followed Sanders are exactly the same type of people who follow Trump. The characteristics are similar. You noted selfishness as the main characteristic, but I’d like to add two more characteristics. Stupid and racist.
Stupid is self-explanatory. There are a lot of stupid people following evil people. But what motivates some of Sander’s followers is a lack of ability to control others which is rooted in White Supremacy. It’s very difficult to convince them this is the behavior they are exhibiting. The cherry-picking facts, the need to convince others they are right and the rest of the world is wrong, the fact they can’t see the same White Supremacy in their candidate they see in Joe Biden…It’s pretty spectacular to watch. Two White Bernie supporters told me yesterday they were going to be watching Fox News and so forth because Joe Biden was racist, and you know the rest of their spill. Of course they were about 18 years younger than me.
They have no clue what they showed me in that moment. My freedom hinges on getting Trump out of office. If you watch Americans long enough Kitty, they’ll show you who they are. A vote for Trump is a vote for White Supremacy. Period. A Bernie voter who can vote for the racist 2016 Trump in 2020 is a 2020 White Supremacist, and an enemy.
