Bernie Sanders seemed to slight his own campaign press secretary when discussing progressives who decline to endorse Joe Biden while speaking to the Associated Press on Tuesday.
Sanders was asked about his former campaign press secretary, Briahna Joy Gray, who has declined to endorse Biden. He merely said that Gray “is my former press secretary — not on the payroll.” Sanders had also scolded his supporters who intend to decline to support Biden, claiming they’re “irresponsible.” Many Sanders supporters feel as if Biden lacks a real progressive policy platform, choosing not to support policies such as Medicare for All and a wealth tax.
Gray was one of Sanders’ most prominent campaign officials on Twitter during the 2020 primary. She announced shortly after Sanders dropped out of the race that she would not be endorsing Joe Biden, diverging from Sanders himself, who bent the knee to the presumptive Democratic nominee in an endorsement on Tuesday.
With the utmost respect for Bernie Sanders, who is an incredible human being & a genuine inspiration, I don't endorse Joe Biden.

Gray became a target for stringent ‘Vote Blue’ neoliberal Democrats after rebuffing demands that she endorse Biden. It appears Bernie is unwilling to defend his former campaign press secretary’s right to support political candidates of her choice, despite Gray’s loyalty to the Vermont democratic socialist.
Gray has predicted that the Democratic Party establishment will seek to replace Joe Biden at the convention or earlier. There’s reason to believe she is even more critical of Biden than her former candidate ever was, willing to ask questions about the veracity of Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegation against Biden and bring up his increasingly obvious cognitive decline.
Perhaps if Sanders had been willing to fight back against the establishment in the same fashion his supporters are, his recent humbling endorsement of the has-run Democratic nominee might’ve been the other way around.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
