52:20 is from decades of dogmatic ideologies that came about from religion and the science of eugenics.

This is when #BlueMAGA rigged the nomination process to endorse Biden. Something that the GOP didn't even do in 2016 against Trump.

Biden is being used for a path to a contested convention. If he's not the outright nominee for the general; as everything about him is manufactured. When he loses in the general to Trump. They'll use Bernie supporters as the fall bros we who will vilified for pointing out his weaknesses in policies and pointing out mental decline to ensure millions are disenfranchised. It'll be a win win for the establishment again without any self reflection like 2016.
