Forest Regional Message Board
Well the ideas tend to personalize (is that the right word for it?) to every candidate in some way, so it's pretty much the same thing with everyone eventually. Only difference with Bernie was that he was actually trying to move and change things in a different way, like the walfare kind of, and he said a lot of things people are not usually saying because they are afraid for their political careers. So it was kinda new and fresh in a looong looong time in the US politics on federal level.
I see no evidence of a cult of personality around Bernie. The slogan of his campaign was literally, "Not Me, Us".
And the movement that backed him continues apace, through the election of congressional candidates who support progressive ideals.
If it did seem like a cult of personality around Bernie during the primaries, it was probably because the only other major candidate considered left (Warren) routinely exposed herself as an opportunistic liar. When a person is the only one pushing a point of view that has a large enough base of support, and their opponents are hellbent on stopping them, itís understandable for the candidateís supporters to deify them.
It does logically make sense, whether or not Chinese interference becomes a notable aspect of the election. China wants Trump out because they need a stable trading partner most of all. Trump is just really hard for them to deal with -- one day he says he loves them, the next day he's banning their companies. Biden may be less blithely unconcerned with the Uyghurs compared to Trump, but China thinks the US doesn't have much control over that anyway. He may be able to hold up the US's place in the world a bit more, but China knows it's going to surpass the US in world power eventually anyway too. What the US does have control over is the fortunes of Chinese companies -- who are hurt by Trump's love of trade wars -- and by extension, Chinese economic development.
