Project Veritas Exposed Violent Marxists in Bernie Sanders Campaign.
I guess 'Circe Jerk' doesn't like facts.
Bernie Sanders is a faux socialist. He's never advocated anything radical for American Foreign Policy. But his campaign workers sure have radical ideas about gulags, re-educating Americans and killing people with guillotines.
If you support Sanders you are supporting people who want to destroy not reform America.
Blathering on with ad hominem attacks just proves to everyone that you have no argument 'Circe Jerk'. I'm sure you will prove me right with more nasty attacks rather than commenting on the fact that Sanders hasn't fired these lunatics, the MSM has avoided the whole issue and you have an impotent response fit for a middle school debate.

Laughing out loud @ dorje @302

Putting America's oligarchs and their sycophants to the guillotine is what America (and the rest of the world, by the way) needs right now. Cutting out that cancer won't destroy America, but rather give America the opportunity for renaissance. Some fools think that cancer can be "reformed", that if we just find the right "regulations" for that cancer then everything will be OK. That has been tried again and again but the cancer of capitalism always returns to where we are now, murdering millions in the process, with hundreds of millions more to go before capitalism can reset for another cycle. Shortening some oligarchs and their lackeys by a head is small potatoes in comparison to the killing that empire is doing and what is to come.

"Project Veritas is an American Right-wing activist group. The group uses "disguises and hidden cameras to uncover supposed liberal bias and corruption". The group is known for producing deceptively edited videos about media organizations and left-leaning groups. Wikipedia
Founder: James O'Keefe
Founded: June 2010"

Wikipedia may be wrong, but preponderance of evidence tells that "drone" is a troll.

Thanks for your reply, its kudos, and for the Sufi saying! I first encountered the Sufis when doing research on the people of the Caucus region, Chechens in particular, as they resisted the Russian Empire's advance led by Shamil. I found it odd that most of the source materials were in the Asia specific library at University of Hawaii Manoa instead of the large Russian history collection in the main branch. Unfortunately I wasn't versed in Russian, so I had to rely on the British sources, which were decent but not as numerous. Fascinating all the differing culture groups that once lived in that region as well as the large number that remain today.

The reality is that the slimy DNC and Senator Warren will do what they can to block Sanders

“Just as it did in 2016, the DNC appears determined to sabotage a Sanders nomination, foisting a collection of neoliberal and imperialist hacks onto the convention committee to hold back a popular rebellion against the policies of endless war and corporate free trade they have personally presided over.”

Meanwhile smoke-signal Warren has a “new list of foreign policy advisors, Warren unveiled a cast of pro-war think tankers, Cold Warriors and corporate careerists united in support of the Beltway consensus. So much for “big, structural change.””

Another Hmmm-inducing coincidence I have heard of, is that, bearing in mind that the incubation period of the novel corona virus is two weeks. there was an American military delegation in Wuhan two weeks before the outbreak. (Or so I have read. Can anyone confirm this allegation?)

The eleventh of the month has gained significance due to 9-11 and 7-11 (in England). Thus, 3-11, 4-11, and 5-11 would have symbolic value as for a "terrorist" incident.

The “terrorist incident” in London was on 7/7 not 7/11. Perhaps you are muddling it up with the perfume?

Yes there is a lot of dirt to come out about how in the last days of WW2 the British Intelligence service betrayed the mostly communist French agents to the Gestapo and the Allies in Italy paused and told the Germans that they were staying put for the winter, so that they could concentrate on mopping up the, mostly communist, Partisans. I have reads hints of it here and there but never seen a full-blown account of it.
