Democratic Party goes to war against Sanders – World Socialist Web Site
The line-up assembled on Monday behind Biden personifies the reactionary social forces that dominate the Democratic Party. Biden himself is the most right-wing of all the major candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination, steeped in the crimes of American imperialism during the eight years of the Obama-Biden administration, which followed his 36-year career in the US Senate, where he boasted of close relationships with reactionaries like Strom Thurmond and James Eastland, and, more recently, Mitch McConnell.
His “coalition” consists of upper-middle class factions based on identity politics of race and gender, such as Representative James Clyburn, whose backing was critical in South Carolina, and Senator Klobuchar; the military-intelligence apparatus, directly represented in this campaign by Buttigieg; and the financial aristocracy, whose support is still divided between Biden and billionaire Michael Bloomberg.
Sanders is unacceptable to the party because it has no intention of raising any issue of significant social reform in the 2020 elections. It wants to run a right-wing campaign, largely based on attacking Trump as a Russian agent, a re-run of the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign, in which it seeks to gain the support of Wall Street and the CIA for the ouster of Trump.
Isn’t that potentially anti semitism?
