Bernie Sanders wants the far left to take over the Democratic Party. Some might suggests that already happened, even though Bernie didn’t get the nomination in 2016.
Still, this is an interesting development because it highlights the civil war currently taking place among Democrats which the media usually ignores.
Sanders to faithful: Take down Trump, take over Democratic Party
Bernie Sanders’ permanent “political revolution” rolled into Chicago on Saturday night, as the Vermont senator called on progressive activists gathered here to beat back President Donald Trump’s agenda while remaking the Democratic Party.
Speaking to a crowd of buzzing supporters in former President Barack Obama’s adopted hometown, Sanders ripped Trump’s “incredible hypocrisy” and called the President a demagogue who makes “even a very conservative president like George W. Bush” appealing in comparison.
But it was his unsparing assessment of the party whose nomination he sought in 2016 that set off an audience of nearly 4,000 mostly dedicated “Berniecrats.”
“I am often asked by the media and others, ‘How did it come about that Donald Trump, the most unpopular presidential candidate in the modern history of our country, won the election?'” he offered teasingly as chants of “Bernie would have won” filled the hall.
Going further to the left will not help Democrats win back the voters they lost last fall.
Shhh. No one tell them.
