How Can Bernie Sanders
Happen in America?

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 2/27/2020 5:17:03 AM

A number of pundits have recently argued that younger voters, especially those under 30, are less inclined to be bothered when they hear the word “socialism,” since they have no firsthand memory of the Cold War. To some extent, this must be true. Those who weren’t alive during socialism’s cruelest catastrophes — or even its many banal failures — will be less put off by the idea. Then again, if a presidential candidate were praising the excellent public transportation system of the Third Reich or going on about the some alleged benefit to American slavery, they would rightly be chased from the public square forever

Easy, we don't teach history anymore -- neither the world's nor our own. Thus leaving the majority of Millennials and Gen Xers intellectually shallow and perpetually ignorant.

How many of us L.dotters grew up in families who had parents who served in the military or who had parents and grandparents who lived through HARD TIMES? We heard the stories of hardship and having little of nothing to call our own and our parents sacrificed and DID WITHOUT all the conveniences of life? Who had holiday gatherings of family where often times the men would hang out together and talk about their military service, or being away from home during the holidays service their country somewhere far from home? How many of us have never really known a time in our lives where having a hovel to live in, or enough food to eat, or the basics of life were at risk? To be sure, there are many who do live in poverty. There are many who have it worse and MUCH WORSE than we do, but the solution is NOT socialism and its unintended consequences of virtual slavery and servitude to the government dole. Much of what is fueling the adoration of CrAZy Bernie the Red is that many of the younger followers don't KNOW and correctly perceive the dangers of government dependence, and earning a HARD_EARNED dollar, and are SPOILED rotten. They have a sense of "fairness" and think that money to pay for everything is easily within reach, and that we already have socialism in small amounts and that we can do good by having more of it. People have lost their lives for disagreeing with tyrannical dictators who give things out to secure support only to have them taken away..... In the Great Depression there was much human suffering, but a lot of character building, and the Greatest Generation is all but gone now, and their children are fading out of the picture now. With 30-35% of the young people below age 32 (and eligible to vote), the challenge is real. They haven;t thought about what happens when all the money from the "rich" is GONE forever, and the consequences.

How can Bernie happen? FTA: 'For that matter, many Americans — including Bernie — lived through Stalin and Pol Pot and Mao and they still champion the idea of socialism.' For dye-red in the wool commies like Bernie, it doesn't matter if socialism works for the people; it only matters that it works for THEM. They don't really care about the downtrodden. They expect to be millionaires with their dacha by the lake. For Bernie, that's already happened. ditto the klintoons, the obummers etc. etc.

Sanders was an obscure congressional laughingstock for DECADES - even among lefty democrats - until Barack Hussein Alinsky came along and radicalized a bunch of economic illiterates by astroturfing and embracing the OWS mob using textbook Marxist class warfare rhetoric giving Bernie his opening.

The lazy, greedy, low information crowd has been putting democrat politicians into office since LBJ figured out that magic formula. They don't care what name you give the system as long as the groceries, housing, beer and cigarettes keep arriving free and on time. If they managed to gather enough numbers to put Bernie into office, they would enjoy life for a year or two and then the horror of what they had done would hit them hard. Atlas would shrug and the bread lines would turn into crumb lines.

Easy, it was by design. Perhaps we should have listened to Khrushchev. Soviet dictator Nikita Khrushchev said of Roosevelt’s “New Deal” paradigm shift, “We can’t expect the American people to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.” All we had to do was to listen to our enemies and take them seriously. No conjecture, no untested wild speculation, no conspiracy theories no tin foil hats.

The dimocrat party has been the socialist party for many years. They were implementing socialism incrementally--more and more free stuff. With the current line up of dim candidates they are willing to jump right into full socialism. The socialist supporters today just see it as more free stuff and believe this country is not capable of devolving into another Maoist, Che, Castro, Stalin, etc. experience. I don't care to test that theory and neither do the majority of voters in 2020.

"How Can Bernie Sanders Happen in America?" 1. Because of the msm. 2. Because of a sense of entitlement. 3. They have never experienced first-hand, a world war and the fought-for values of freedom. 4. They have never had it so good and do not understand why our land of plenty has made it all possible. 5. Lack of spiritual training, most of them reject God and have never gone to church. 6. They have been conditioned to believe less is better and if they can't have it, you can't have it. 7. They suffer from economic ignorance. 8. They suffer from historical ignorance. 9. They suffer from societal ignorance. 10. They have succumbed to the brainwashing effects of social media. Thanks, Zuckie. 11. They have been controlled by our indoctrination centers since Age 5. 12. Their teachers apologize for America almost every day. 13. They have been raised in a PC culture since they were old enough to cry. 14. They hate their divorce mothers for bringing them up badly. 15. Disintegration of the family unit. 16. They have never experienced hardship. No depression. No food shortages. 17. Wi Fi always available and so is social media.

Wait, what? "especially those under 30" No. When I was in high school in the 1970s, I had a social studies teacher who had visited the Soviet Union and she sang the praises of their system. A high school teacher evangelizing class after class of teenagers about the wondrous virtues of communism. In the 70s. The same government that gives us FBI, DOJ etc. also gives us government/public education. OF COURSE that government is going to teach the young that authoritarian tyranny is wonderful!

The schools have been being infiltrated since the 1920s, and it has taken generations of leftist traitors worming their way into the system to get there. They finally reached critical mass in the 70s, just after I left the college campus, but since then have been running riot with their Marxist propaganda lies.

Bernie Sanders used a method Hitler used to take over Germany. He had minions publishing Hitler's policies throughout Germany. This method was easier with Sanders as he has a better communications system than Hitler did. The socialist propaganda was used to inculcate socialism in the entire school system and that made it even easier for Sanders ideas to come to fruition across the nation. Now Sanders may be the Democrat nominee. I was a Sailor for 30 years fighting against socialism or communism becoming the American system and losing the Constitution, one of the best documents giving the people the power and not the government. It's a sad day when a professed socialist (Sanders is actually a communist) is running for president.

It was interesting reading all the reasons for Bernie, except we forgot to blame the Democratic Party. When Bernie left the Republican Party as a senator to become an Independent the Decorates jumped all over him to caucus with them for the need of a majority. If Bernie was not left alone as an Independent he would have no platform to run from. Problem solved as always the Democrats will do anything to have a majority dead voters, aliens etc.. They will sometime in the future regret Bloomberg. Its a shame they have no viable people in their own party and it's a reason to never vote for them because they have no principles.

I think most of the socialism kiddies have been the beneficiaries of a parental "free lunch" - handed everything, working for nothing. And, to some of them, Bernie just looks like the generous and loving grandpa they had or wish they'd had. When one grows up, one learns that there is no such thing as a "free lunch." Somebody has to pay. And most of us know that both Bernie and the "free" lunch he is offering are lethal.

Heading into South Carolina, it appeared that Democrats were taking the express train to socialism. Sen. Bernie Sanders arguably won the chaotic Iowa caucuses, then went on to a solid victory in New Hampshire, and a crushing triumph in Nevada. As the race went toward the Palmetto State, there was talk that Sanders might be able to deliver a “kill shot.” Instead, Joe Biden revived his candidacy with a dominant win, fueled by black voters who tend to be more pragmatic than the pro-revolution wing of the party. A day after winning Nevada, 60 Minutes aired an interview with Sanders in which he dug in on his decades of defenses

The South Carolina primary has been called for Joe Biden. This isn’t a surprise. South Carolina, with its large number of black voters, has always been seen as Biden’s firewall, but early returns suggest that his margin may be impressive. Bernie Sanders apparently is finishing second. Possibly the most important fact about today’s vote is that none of the Sanders/Biden alternatives showed any perceptible strength. Michael Bloomberg didn’t participate. There has never been a moment during the campaign when I have taken Biden seriously as a candidate for the Democratic nomination, let alone the presidency. Despite today’s win, his decrepitude seems to be accelerating. No doubt you have seen reports

On January 20, 2020, the nation turned towards Virginia as a massive Second Amendment rally took place in Richmond. Why did this “Right to Bear Arms” rally occur? Because Virginians were afraid of an aggressive legislative agenda aimed at gun ownership in a historically pro–Second Amendment state. The gun grab legislation that fueled the pushback was proposed on January 10, when House Bill 961 passed with a 51-48 vote. This dubious legislation, in short, would have prohibited the sale, transportation, and transferring of newly defined “assault firearms.” The ill-fated bill also would have banned magazines with a capacity of 12 or more rounds, suppressors, and other elements —

Whenever Bernie Sanders’s socialism comes up in the Democratic debates, he deflects criticism by saying he favors something along the lines of Denmark’s model. Sanders’s debate rivals almost invariably let this answer pass. (I think Pete Buttigieg tried to take it on in the last debate but couldn’t get the floor.) In reality, the policies Sanders advocates bear little resemblance to those of Denmark and other Scandinavian countries today. They do resemble many of the policies these countries tried 50 years ago. However, these policies failed and were discarded. The Vermont socialist is getting away with false advertising, including bait and switch.

Venezuela’s main opposition leader—the man who is recognized by that country’s National Assembly, millions of his fellow citizens, and several dozen foreign countries as the rightful president of Venezuela—was one of the special guests at the State of the Union address. President Donald Trump welcomed Guaidó as living evidence that his own administration was “standing up for freedom in our hemisphere” and had “reversed the failed policies of the previous administration”; he called Venezuela’s current leader, Nicolás Maduro, an illegitimate ruler whose “grip on tyranny will be smashed and broken.”

SUMTER, S.C. — In October, Pete Buttigieg said he would do better with South Carolina’s black voters once they got to know him better. When he came back in December, he was still working on introducing himself to the black electorate. And in late January he admitted he was scared that at his rallies in South Carolina, where 60 percent of the Democratic electorate is black, most attendees were white. Those fears were borne out on Saturday, when Mr. Buttigieg was trounced in South Carolina’s primary and earned just two percent of the vote from African-Americans, according to early exit polling.

While I fully support his right to protest things he thinks are wrong, I respectfully disagree with his belief that school carnage will end if semi-automatic rifles are banned.
