The New York Times’ #MeToo smear against Bernie Sanders

5 January 2018

On Wednesday, the New York Times published a lengthy front-page article alleging that Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination was rife with sexism and discrimination against female campaign staffers. The article, headlined “For Bernie Sanders, Claims of Sexism in 2016 Campaign Hang Over 2020 Bid”, has all the earmarks of a politically motivated fabrication.

It is an amalgam of vague and unsubstantiated accusations, none of them alleging sexual assault or any other form of criminal behavior. For the most part, the actions described are at worst boorish. The accused who are named all deny the charges, making it impossible for the reader to determine the truth of the allegations.

Timed to coincide with the opening of the campaign for the 2020 Democratic nomination, the article represents an effort by the Times, which speaks for the dominant factions of the Democratic Party and the forces on Wall Street and in the military/intelligence establishment with which the Democrats are allied, to torpedo a potential presidential run by the Vermont senator. …

The Times article is an attack on Sanders from the right. It is motivated by fear of the growth of working-class struggles and the development of class-conscious opposition to the entire political establishment and capitalism.

In the 2016 election, Sanders won mass support by presenting himself as a socialist and basing his primary campaign on an appeal to class issues—wages, jobs and hatred of the corporate-financial oligarchy. …

Under conditions today of a convergence of economic and geopolitical crises and the greatest crisis of class rule in the US since the Civil War—and amidst a resurgence of the class struggle in the United States and internationally—the Times is determined to banish anything from the 2020 campaign that might arouse the seething anger of workers and young people.

Bring troops home from Syria, Democrat Elizabeth Warren says


This 4 January 2019 video from the USA is called Elizabeth Warren Supports Trump’s Syria Withdrawal.

It looks Ms Warren, a left-winger among Democratic party politicians, has better ideas on Syria than warmongering politicians in the right wing of her party and in the Republican party. They prefer United States soldiers coming home in coffins to coming home alive and prefer continued killing of Syrian civilians. Apparently, Senator Warren does not.

Unfortunately, it looks like warmongering ‘broken clock‘ President Donald Trump may be already backtracking on his original plan of bringing the soldiers home from Syria.

Update, 6 January 2019: Trump’s advisor Bolton now says US soldiers will stay in Syria indefinetely, ‘to prevent Kurds from allying with the Syrian government or Russia’.

US National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have embarked on what could be described as a “walk back” tour of the Middle East. Its purpose is to assure US regional allies that Washington is not about to implement the decision announced by President Donald Trump last month to carry out a speedy and total withdrawal of US troops from Syria: here.
