This 100%. But I think NATE thinks his audience is mainstream-indie, so he's writing to appeal to those supporters. The maintream-indie would eat this shit up. Bernie lost because he was willing to be part of the democrats, rather than actually fighting against them. Thinking more about it - the message and its delivery was ultimately flawed. The elites that let him run probably knew this and knew they could turn the election anytime they wanted, because they could just fix the results. Look at it this way, Bernie running in a party fighting against that party, with messages of the powerful elite that were corrupt, but at the same time giving his unequivocal support to Joe Biden, makes people question whether he was the real deal, at least the undecided voters.
