Recent US elections confirmed that progressives will have to fight two monsters at once: Donald Trump and corporate Democrats
Nancy Pelosi's speech after Democrats took the House in recent US elections was not just a huge disappointment. Many progressives became furious about her empty speech, which was full of the most obsolete political generalities and cliches.
But it was not just that Pelosi didn't want to committ that Democrats will fight for specific issues - in favor of the vast majority of Americans - that returned in the political debate by Bernie Sanders and the progressive movement.
She actually 'gave the finger' to the progressives straight and clear.
If you don't believe it, just check her own words: “... we will strive for bipartisanship. [...] we have a bipartisan marketplace of ideas that makes our democracy strong ...”
Translation: ‘We will do business as usual. The bipartisan dictatorship will remain strong and under the control of the plutocratic elite. Nothing will change, don't bother.’
That's all you need to know.
Here is another evidence that the corporate Democrats won't let Bernie Sanders, under any circumstances, to take the leadership of the Democratic party. Even if he beats Trump by 20 points in the polls.
Still don't believe it? Check out how warmly Trump endorsed Pelosi for House speaker:
President Donald Trump on Wednesday enthusiastically threw his support behind Nancy Pelosi in her bid to again become House speaker, seemingly relishing the thought of using her as a foil as he revs up his reelection campaign. “In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats,” Trump tweeted. “If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!”
Yes, it's true. Corporate Democrats are ready to ally with the devil in order to maintain status quo in favor of their wealthy donors. Trump wants the same thing, after all, for his super-rich buddies. Whatever it takes to wipe out the progressive 'threat'. This is the perfect proof of the big fraud called 'resistance', which is actually 'assistance', as many already rightfully call it.
So, here is the evidence that progressives will have to fight against two monsters at the same time towards 2020 presidential elections: Donald Trump and corporate Democrats. It would be almost impossible to defeat them both, without their own independent political party.
