The man who would be President

Ah Bernie Sanders.  The independent socialist senator from Vermont.  The hero of the American intersectional left.

Here is a charming video of the Bern from 1988, looking intoxicated on his honeymoon in the Soviet Union!  The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics!  For those who can’t remember or are too young to know (coz you don’t get taught the costs and consequences of socialism), Russia was the centre piece of the USSR.

Bernie is the guy on the right – right of the video, not right of the political spectrum.

Oh Bernie.  Palin’ around with Russians.  How could you.  Can there be an investigation?

And just think.  This guy almost beat Hillary to be the Democratic Party nominee for President in 2016.  And even more.  He is currently considered a favourite for the 2020 nomination!

    Socialists never face the consequences of socialism.

    Nothing wrong with having been drunk and shirtless in the 1980’s.
    Or so I’m led to believe.

    It’s only a matter of time before there is a military coup in the western world, when these treasonous toads get into power. The french military has already warned Macron.

    or even in the early 70s, I am told.

    He did beat her.

    What’s more he would have won the general election.

    I always wondered what the decromat aparat had on sanders to make him abandon his attempt to become presidential candidate ,one day he is acclaimed by the communists in the decri=omat gang the next he withdraws ? Many crimes he has committed come to mind .murder, paedophillia ,treason spring to mind ,he wouldnt pull out just for theft .sex crime deception they are all guilty of that no it was really serious . I am sure Trump would know the decromats wont nominate him again in case Trump exposes his crimes .
    Politicians are really the dregs of society arent they there are more honest people in jail ,many more ,politicans the scum of the earth ,vermin .

    That Sanders could have even been a viable candidate is startling. Not that many years before he wouldn’t have attracted more then a handful of votes from the lunatic Left.

    Meanwhile, that Cortez woman gets elected.

    I know the US is supposed to a beacon of hope etc, but even they are (slightly) wilting under the relentless pressure. God help us.

    From your tone it sounds like you’re opposed to a Sanders Presidency, but from your past statements it’s not really clear at all.

    Challenging someone like Bernie will take a lot more than superficiality and boilerplate. Sadly we are in this mess largely because what mainstream movements claim to oppose socialism, actually agree with socialists, on the most fundamental questions.

    As someone said to me in Silicon Valley, a few years ago, while explaining why so many smart people in America vote democrat: “Our choice is between socialists vs stupider socialists, who don’t believe in dinosaurs.”

    It must be very lonely on your utopian planet, which is why TAFKAS offers the following advice. Go fuck yourself.

    During my sabbatical from this site l have been following American politics through initially as much of the wide spectrum of opinion that is available online.
    Whether it is due to cognition dissonance or in fact because they are actually irrational, l eventually reduced my Lefty sites to occasional visits to see how they would spin a story in comparison to the 3 conservative sites l found that aren’t completely deranged as well.
    Bernie Sanders has been a lifelong political creature starting a a protest leader among students.
    He has never had a real job.
    This story is old hat. What it does is illustrate how the current Democrat side is completely disengaged from trying to maintain any threat of logic or precedent in regards to anything in the public sphere.
    Similarly thinking people in Oz have the same modus operandi of shouting down any question that would require a considered answer.

    It IS very lonely.
    I mean, even on Australia’s “leading libertarian and centre-right blog,” not only most posters, but even many of the bloggers, are politically illiterate leftists.

    Also, thanks for confirming you think capitalism is, “utopian.”

    Anyway, I’ll let you get back to mocking Bernie Sanders, because that makes perfect sense…

    You couldn’t make this up…

    Boringly and predictably this site’s resident auto-coprovore chimes in with drive-by sneering.

    How about you start with an exposition of what you mean by “rights” which explains why you assert it’s legitimate to use border protection to protect a “right” to be protected from disease but not to protect a “right” to be protected from other dangers and detriments.
