REACHED FOR COMMENT BY THESE REPORTERS, JOE YELLED, "HUH? SO WHAT! I SAID I DIDN'T WANT MY KIDS TO GROW UP IN A RACIAL JUNGLE WHAT MAKES YOU THINK I'D WANT THOSE PEOPLE ON MY CAMPAIGN! AND YOU KNOW I'M RIGHT. IF YOU SAY I'M WRONG, YOU AIN'T BLACK!"
WHEN THESE TWO REPORTERS POINTED OUT THAT ONE OF US IS NOT BLACK, JOE REPLIED, "WHY! WHY! WHY! DIDN'T I JUST SAY THAT? YOU AIN'T BLACK!"
That's in England. Are we so deluded we don't see similar actions in the US? Corbyn? Bernie Sanders was his stand-in here in the United States. Bernie watched as his campaign was circumvented by the media (overtly) and by Barack Obama and others behind the scenes.
Instead of standing up for the values he espoused while running, he now offers meek little criticisms while telling everyone to rally around War Hawk Joe Biden.
There was a movement behind Bernie Sanders. How very sad that he betrayed. Even more sad, only Jimmy Dore appears to be comfortable telling that truth.
John Stauber offers:
It's very telling who Joe Biden's constituency is. Neocons like Bill Kristol. Liars like David Frum. Trash like War Criminal Colin Powell. Collie lied to the United Nations in order to help start the Iraq War. (See Ava and my "TV Review: Barbara and Colin remake The Way We Were.") He was part of a team of liars that also included Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, John Bolton and Bully Boy Bush among others. He's gone on to lie about his lies. And yet today he wanted to whine about Donald Trump lying. Sarah Abdallah observes:
Now that Powell is back in the news & being feted for his courage in calling Trump a liar, it might seem rude to remind liberals that Powell whitewashed the My Lai massacre, a service to the Empire that helped launch the upward trajectory of his career...
He's also the person who refused to allow openly gay people to serve in the military. That was what Bill Clinton had promised voters while he campaigned in 1992. Colin wasn't having it. That's why Bill proposed Don't Ask, Don't Tell. In 2010, he was finally for repealing it. He has never been forced to apologize, nor has he ever faced serious questions about his homophobia.
Jake Tapper brought him on CNN Sunday as 'wise' Colin Powell, everybody's friend. Jake did everything but shove his hand down the front of Colin's pants and give the liar a happy ending. Jake should be ashamed of himself and so should CNN.
We have endless wars today and not only are we not, as a country, trying to end them, we're now enshrining the crooks responsible for them.
To prepare for a Biden presidency.
