Civil War Brewing: Bernie Sanders Supporters Building a ‘Never Biden’ Movement
A Democrat civil war is brewing as some of Bernie Sanders’ biggest supporters are warning that they will strike back at the Democrat Party if Joe Biden becomes the Democrat nominee.
The Bernie Bros are on the warpath!
As each new Democrat primary puts Biden further in the lead in the all-important delegate count, the Bernie Bros are issuing warnings.
“We will never – NEVER boost or support Joe Biden or defend his abysmal record and terrible policy positions,”
Henry Williams, executive director of The Gravel Institute, told the New York Post.
“We will tell people, as we always have, to vote their conscience and to make decisions based on the interests of all the world’s oppressed people … I do expect a massive exodus from the Democratic Party.”
These voters say they can’t vote for the uninspiring Biden. And according to the Post some of them may be in a position to really hurt the Democrats.
The paper added:
The grumbling from Sanders die-hards is no idle threat. A whopping 12% of them voted for Trump in 2016, according to an analysis by Cooperative Congressional Election Study. That added up to roughly 216,000 voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, exit polls showed. Trump’s combined margin of victory in those states was 77,744.
The Post also noted that if enough Democrats even just stay home on Election Day this year it could hurt Biden’s chances of beating Trump.
His supporters also don’t want Bernie scared out of the race prematurely, too.
“I think staying in the race is the responsible thing to do,”
Bhaskar Sunkara, founder and editor of the socialist magazine Jacobin told the paper.
“He needs to challenge Biden on certain aspects of his rhetoric. He needs to accumulate clout and delegates to shape the Democratic platform and pressure the Biden campaign into adopting a more popular economic platform.”
If they come to fruition, these rumblings could doom the Democrats in 2020.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical.
