Here It Comes: Get Ready for a Stop-Bernie Onslaught Like You've Never Seen

Beware. Because disparaging and minimizing Bernie in 2019 didn't work, the next step in 2020 will be to trash him with a vast array of full-bore attacks
Published on
Friday, December 27, 2019
by Common Dreams

A central premise of conventional media wisdom has collapsed. On Thursday, both the New York Times and Politico published major articles reporting that Bernie Sanders really could win the Democratic presidential nomination. Such acknowledgments will add to the momentum of the Bernie 2020 campaign as the new year begins—but they foreshadow a massive escalation of anti-Sanders misinformation and invective.

Throughout 2019, corporate media routinely a*serted that the Sanders campaign had little chance of winning the nomination. As is so often the case, journalists were echoing each other more than paying attention to grassroots realities. But now, polling numbers and other indicators on the ground are finally sparking very different headlines from the media establishment.

"When the Bernie campaign wasn't being ignored by corporate media during 2019, innuendos and mud often flew in his direction. But we ain't seen nothing yet."

From the Times: “Why Bernie Sanders Is Tough to Beat.” From Politico: “Democratic Insiders: Bernie Could Win the Nomination.”

Those stories, and others likely to follow in copycat news outlets, will heighten the energies of Sanders supporters and draw in many wavering voters. But the shift in media narratives about the Bernie campaign’s chances will surely boost the decibels of alarm bells in elite circles where dousing the fires of progressive populism is a top priority.

For corporate Democrats and their profuse media allies, the approach of disparaging and minimizing Bernie Sanders in 2019 didn’t work. In 2020, the next step will be to trash him with a vast array of full-bore attacks.

Along the way, the corporate media will occasionally give voice to some Sanders defenders and supporters. A few establishment Democrats will decide to make nice with him early in the year. But the overwhelming bulk of Sanders media coverage—synced up with the likes of such prominent corporate flunkies as Rahm Emanuel and Neera Tanden as well as Wall Street Democrats accustomed to ruling the roost in the party—will range from condescending to savage

When the Bernie campaign wasn’t being ignored by corporate media during 2019, innuendos and mud often flew in his direction. But we ain’t seen nothing yet.

With so much at stake—including the presidency and the top leadership of the Democratic Party—no holds will be barred. For the forces of corporate greed and the military-industrial complex, it’ll be all-out propaganda war on the Bernie campaign.

While reasons for pessimism are abundant, so are ample reasons to understand that a Sanders presidency is a real possibility. The last places we should look for political realism are corporate media outlets that distort options and encourage passivity.

Bernie is fond of quoting a statement from Nelson Mandela: “It always seems impossible until it is done.”

From the grassroots, as 2020 gets underway, the solution should be clear: All left hands on deck.

Already three Bernie hit pieces this month from the NYY, CNN, and Project Veritas. Let the propaganda wars begin!

We gotta rally people close to us, point out this slander and speak with our votes in the primary. We’ve come too far now to fail.

The corporate democrats that are bought and paid for by oil money are gonna help with the decay of this planet. Bern is trying to stop it and this is their chance to sabotage things. Speak with your vote

holy crap this is an incredibly poorly written article.

How in the world does "Bernie can win!" in WSJ "foreshadow" a massive anti-sanders campaign by the same outlet? WSJ praising Sanders is a good thing.

This kind of overt paranoia hurts our message and to be frank, sounds like all they did was take some Trump press release and tweak it a bit.

Use better sources and chill on the paranoia, Sanders is incredibly popular, criticism comes with that territory. But why don't we go ahead and wait to see who says what in that respect before we decide to bomb the very outlets that are helping spread his message right now lol.

#NeverWarren is literally the number 1 trending topic on Twitter right now.

Instead of pushing for a substantive debate on ideas and philosophy she and her camp decided to go for a disingenuous and cheap attack 3 weeks prior to the Iowa caucus. Shameful.

You hate to see it but Liz proved to be just another lousy politician

This move by Warren is only suprising because of its overt desperation. She went for broke trying to pull a Hillary and smear one of the most popular and highly regarded politicians alive. Problem is Warren doesn't have Hillary's balls or network so almost immediately the fascade started falling apart. It's just not believable.

Warren snubbing Bernie after the debates was an attempt to drive a permanent wedge between the two camps and prevent Bernie from gaining her base supporters after she inevitably loses the primaries. Whether it's the DNC, a backroom VP deal with Biden, or something else, it's now clear Warren is using her dwindling spotlight to handicap Bernie while she still can. The Bernie snub will be remembered as the end of her political career.

Poorly written comment by a known shill, denouncing awareness of an ongoing shill campaign against a progressive candidate.

So far this month we have 3 laughably transparent anti-Bernie smear attacks, one right after the next:










Bernie Sanders is a bigger threat to the established corporate order than Trump so these baseless attacks will only get more hysterical.

Politico reported that Bernie's campaign distributed a script to volunteers suggesting she appealed mainly to highly educated voters and they fire back with Bernie says a "woman can't win", that seems a bit lopsided

Bernie denies it and she vaguely responds with the "question has been raised" which is a phrase she likely walked in there with

who knows, but this kinda feels like one of the moments people look back on in history

The majority of us in here see this for what is really is.

Our movement is getting stronger and stronger. Those in power know how close we really are to winning this nomination.
