In a scene that could have come straight out of the 2016 presidential election campaign, the Democratic Party brought in anti-Bernie activists to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ town hall meeting. CNN deceptively failed to mention the fact that the people who were asking questions were either tied to Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign. and/or were members of organizations that would not want to see Sen. Sanders win the primaries, much less the presidency.
Tara Ebersole, one of the many women who questioned Sen. Sanders at the town hall, was identified by CNN as a “former biology professor”. In fact, Mrs. Ebersole is also the chair of the Baltimore County Democratic Party, and her husband was a member of Hillary Clinton’s leadership council in 2016.
Shadi Nasab, who asked the Senator about allegations of sexual harassment on his 2016 campaign, is an intern at Cassidy & Associates, a DC lobbying firm that works with clients which would not be amenable to a Bernie Sanders presidency.
Abena McAlister, who was solely identified as a “mother of two”, is also the Charles County Democratic Central Committee Chair.
It’s almost as if these people were handpicked by Hillary Clinton herself…
When the Town Hall was over, Deadline had the audacity to tell its audience that Sen. Sanders “was no Kamala Harris” without stating the inconvenient fact that, according to all recent polls, Sen. Sanders has far more support than the California lawmaker.
The Town Hall isn’t the only opportunity the mainstream media has taken to slander Sanders and promote his Democratic rivals. Zerlina Maxwell, a paid official from Clinton’s 2016 campaign, is now working as MSNBC and being identified solely as an “MSNBC analyst”. As she and fellow panelists were discussing Sen. Sanders’ first 2020 campaign speech, Zerlina Maxwell made it a point to assert that Sen. Sanders did not say anything about race or gender until 23 minutes after he started talking. Her fellow panelists sat silently as she fed the audience all the intersectional talking points; however, multiple social media users who actually watched the speech almost immediately called out the deceptive comments.
The truth is that Sen. Sanders did in fact mention race and gender just a few minutes into his speech. In fact, he mentioned both subjects more than once. Not surprisingly, MSNBC not only failed to note the obvious, but also made it a point to tell everyone that Sen. Elizabeth Warren talked about race and gender in the first paragraph of her 2020 presidential campaign opening speech. While CNN at least conceded that it should have provided more information about the people asking Sen. Sanders questions at the Town Hall, MSNBC has yet to issue any sort of apology or clarification — and Ms. Maxwell has doubled down on her clearly erroneous position.
Given the fact that there is well over one and a half years to go before the general election, it’s hard to tell if the DNC and mainstream media will be successful in sidelining Sen. Bernie Sanders once again. However, recent polls indicate that they’re up against a difficult task.
Sen. Sanders is currently in second place, and the only candidate who is ahead of him in the polls is former Vice-President Joe Biden, who has not yet indicated if he will run or not. What’s more, as experts note, Sen. Sanders’ supporters are likely to stick with him while polls show that most voters who support other candidates are open to changing their mind as time goes on. However, one thing that can be said for certain is that people are now more in tune with Democratic Party shenanigans than they were in times past.
If the DNC and its media acolytes continue to try to use dirty tricks to get rid of a candidate they don’t like, the backlash could very well be severe enough to help bring about another term for current President Donald Trump. Maybe it’s not the worst thing in the world…but it’s fun to watch the left eat itself as it always does.
