Crony Jedi-ism: Establishment Jedi Council Member Obi-wan Kenobi with the son of his former pupil Anakin Skywalker and the protocol droid Skywalker built.
Danny DeVito introduced Bernie Sanders at a rally as “Obi-wan” the other day.
That’s not right.
Bernie supporters would never vote for Obi-wan Kenobi. Too many ties to the old Jedi establishment.
Look at his friendship with Anakin Skywalker. He still refuses to repudiate him. Yes, he once called him more machine now than man and twisted and evil, but he was just saying that because Bernie pushed him to it. He trained his son, for the Force's sake! And look how well that worked out.
And he supported the Clone Wars when it was obvious to everyone Palpatine was lying about the Trade Federation and using the war to gain control over the spice routes.
Sure, he has the Wookie vote. But if the Wookies really knew Bernie and how his programs would benefit them they'd #feeltheBern!
Besides, Bernie has the padawans! The kids love Bernie and they're the future of the Order!
You simply can't trust Obi-wan Kenobi. Look at his theory that things are true or not true depending on your point of view.
Now he’s claiming he supports the Rebellion. But he came late to the cause, didn’t he? Wasn’t he hiding out on Tatooine while Rogue One was stealing the plans to the Death Star?
Finally, let's not forget that Obi-wan's master was trained by Count Dooku. Bernie once went on a mission with Mace Windu!
Yes, Bernie people say they’ll vote for Obi-wan if he wins the nomination and the Republicans nominate General Hux. But they’ll make sure we all know that for them it’s practically giving in to the Dark Side.
And I expect it won’t be long before some of them are making the case that maybe four years of rule by the First Order would be a good thing. It will show people Bernie’s brand of a social-democratic Force is the way to go and move the Jedi to the left.
One last thought. Remember who helped save Jar-Jar Binks!
Vote Bernie and may the Force be with you, always!
