This week, Socialist Bernie Sanders endorsed rival Hillary Clinton for president. The socialist who, according to his followers, launched a “revolution” is now feeling the backlash for his decision. In fact, his former followers appear to be turning against him.
Top among these disillusioned followers is socialist Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant — who, no doubt, is still angling to be one of the leaders of the “revolution.”
Sawant recently wrote of Sanders in an opinion piece entitled, “Bernie Sanders Abandons the Revolution”:
Bernie Sander’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton has hugely disappointed millions of his supporters…
Not only did Sanders endorse his neoliberal opponent, he has begun to campaign for her, even before the Democratic National Convention, where he had previously committed to continue the fight…
Sanders endorsement of Clinton is a fundamental failure of leadership…
We can’t afford to follow Bernie’s error. It is time for us to move on…
That is why I’m endorsing Green Party candidate Jill Stein.
Other than blasting Sanders, Sawant also makes sure to fill her piece with plenty of self-praise for her efforts in the “revolution” and other gross misinformation. But, perhaps the most interest part of Sawant’s attack on Sanders is her pledge to attend the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in order to protest.
Sawant promises that there will be “major protests and rallies outside the DNC on the streets of Philadelphia.”
Looks like Clinton/Democrat Party brought down Socialist Sanders in more than one way — bring on the DNC protests.

Good or her. I’m for anything that helps Trump win by a landslide.
Sawant is brilliant and the author of this horrible article, who remains nameless, sucks. clinton/trump are corrupt, vote for stein.
So you support covert nazism? Wow.
