The" Bern" says" Trump Is 'a Racist, a Sexist, a Homophobe, a Xenophobe, a Religious Bigot'

Bern, Ya Old Hypocrite, have you looked in the mirror lately? Coming from an old white guy, he must have not got the "Memo"


Bernie Sanders: Trump Is 'a Racist, a Sexist, a Homophobe, a Xenophobe, a Religious Bigot'

On Friday, at the National Action Network conference in New York City, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, unleashed a storm of invective against President Donald Trump.

Sanders lamented the "institutional racism which permeates almost every aspect of American society." He suggested that "sometimes the media doesn't believe that."

"It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we have a president today who is a racist, who is a sexist, who is a homophobe, who is a xenophobe, and who is a religious bigot," the socialist said. "I wish I didn’t have to say that, but that is the damn truth, and we have to say it."

I believe Bernie is a bit ignorant of Black culture but I don't recall him ever saying racist things like stupid has. The man has lived in Vermont practically his whole life and Vermont is not known to have many Black citizens. I doubt ol Bern is much of a TV watcher, which is how a lot of us have become familiar with the Black culture.

You'd think he would learn something from Hitlery, who really helped put Trump over the top. :D

Post by Riddick » 05-17-2019 01:45 AM

On PBS’s Amanpour and Company Tuesday night, actor Kelsey Grammer made some surprising statements you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone in Hollywood admit: that they are conservative and support what President Trump is doing in Washington. FULL STORY

"Ignorance is Bliss" untill you read the small print. Sounds great doesn't it? You got all these "Rights", Utopia! Except it is just the "Barbed Hook" of which the people swallow.......FOREVER. Stalin implemented these "Wonders" on the Russian People for over 50 years, until the USSR fell in 1991. The Russian people, lived in poverty , want, lack , breadlines and gulags. The "Rights" never came to be in any Good, positive form for the people!

Stay Ignorant, stay useful, well, till you get what you wanted, NOT as you expected, but perhaps as you truely deserve? Me? I will always be Free, no matter what others "Choose" :D


Bernie’s ‘Economic Bill Of Rights’ is a Near Duplicate of Stalin’s 1936 Soviet Constitution

Bernie Sanders, as many of his Democrat colleagues, admits to being “socialist” but don’t you dare call him a communist.
Is Bernie Sanders a Communist?

Consider the opinion of our President and this brief excerpt from a 2016 article by Joseph Farrah at WND:

Donald Trump has called Bernie Sanders a “communist” and a “maniac.”

Was he wrong?

You decide.

But before I make the case that he is, consider that in my misguided youth, I would have described myself as a “communist.” I traveled in many of the same circles as the young Bernie Sanders – Students for a Democratic Society, anti-Vietnam War protests, various Marxist organizations.

I stopped calling myself a socialist and a communist a long time ago. But Bernie has never given up the utopian dream.

It began for him when he joined the Young People’s Socialist League while a student at the University of Chicago, from which he graduated in 1964. What was the mission of the Young People’s Socialist League?

Snippet

On Wednesday, 2020 hopeful Bernie Sanders delivered a major speech about Democratic Socialism.

Finally, Sanders introduces the centerpiece of his platform, which he calls “a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights.”

However, there’s something deeply disturbing about Sanders’ proposal. In an appearance on Hannity, political commentator and historian Mark Levin points out that Sanders has “stolen his agenda from the 1936 Soviet Constitution.”
Here is an excerpt from Sanders’ speech:

A Bill of Rights that establishes once and for all that every American, regardless of his or her income in entitled to:

●The right to a decent job that pays a living wage
●The right to quality health care
●The right to a complete education
●The right to affordable housing
●The right to a clean environment
●The right to a secure retirement

These six “rights,” which define Sanders’ platform, are indistinguishable from the rights identified in the 1936 Soviet Constitution, which is also known as the Stalin Constitution.

Couldn't it also be paraphrased as the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

In a word, No (or "Nyet", if you prefer). But that's JMHO & I'm not a Statist or collectivist. YMMV.

Anahoo, Bernie's been a long time admirer of the USSR. It's gone now, but we have the template! In its place, we can have the United States Of Socialism.

Let's give totalitarianism a try. What's the worst that could happen?

NO. We have the right to Pursue all these things. To think all these things are a "Right" is ludicrous (laughable)!,Utopic thinking. We humans are all different! The catch to the above, is that is pure BS that will never happen. There is not one human on this planet, that is the same. They want you , robotic and compliant , humans worth anything are neither. Reality is a bitch.

A perfect movie for you to watch, is Peter Sellers movie called "Being There". Lots of People made Chance out to be something he could never be. You and great many others are being "Chanced" by simply being told what you "Deserve" just by being born, with no effort needed from anyone. That's just not real . The promise is false.

If it where so. Humans would have no purpse to be here. Many will not even know that they already , don't Exist.

Who needs purpose! Existence without effort is total bliss! Anything else is hell.

Chance was a TV infatuated simpleton gardener cast out from his sheltered "Eden" into the real world. What sin did he commit to earn such a sanction? Why can't he just eat, sleep, sh!t, garden & watch TV his entire life - Dammit, it's just not fair!

Not everyone is helpless, hapless & hopeless but it matters not: The message for everyone is you'll only make do with intervention from a higher power. For life to be unstrained & equitable folks need an Eden & a God who'll never forsake them.

A Government - All powerful, All knowing. All seeing and all Democratic Socialist. There's your God folks, the promise is true. Utopia awaits. Just believe! And OBEY.

Bernie Sanders's Socialism Speech Dodged The Issue

Post by Riddick » 06-20-2019 01:58 AM

Edited & Excerpted From Yascha Mounk's Article At The Atlantic:

Anyone who has studied European—or, for that matter, Latin American history—should know some socialists crafted systems that left virtually no space to private enterprise and crushed the political freedoms of dissenters, while others combined government benefits with a robust market economy and the rule of law.

What mattered was not whether a party or movement called itself socialist, but whether it recognized the danger of autocracy, and carefully formulated limiting principles that would stop it from going down the same path as the Soviet Union. So activists who hope to mainstream socialism in American politics must, at the very least, make clear what, exactly, they mean by the term.

The great differences among the movements and countries that have historically called themselves socialist also makes me skeptical about leftists who think that embracing this label is enough to explain what kind of future they want. Some members of the Democratic Socialists of America, for example, simply want to emulate the rich democracies that provide their citizens with a generous welfare state. But others seek to "abolish capitalism" or sing the praises of the Venezuelan dictatorship.

This is why I was very hopeful when Senator Bernie Sanders’s campaign announced that the candidate would hold a major speech on “How Democratic Socialism Is the Only Way to Defeat Oligarchy and Authoritarianism.” After years of using the term about as imprecisely as many of his followers, I hoped that Sanders would finally set out why it holds such importance to him, what role the market would play in the socialist system he promises to build, and how he can protect his political project against the Soviet risk.

I can’t say he met my expectations. In the most poignant passages of his speech, Sanders rightly argued that a robust welfare state need not be in tension with personal liberty. On the contrary, access to basic social and economic goods is a precondition for being able to make real choices.

Sanders' classic leftist critique of unbridled capitalism retains much of the force it had back in the days of Marx, making a case for the universal provision of affordable health care, financial industry regulation, and generous old-age pensions. But he didn’t acknowledge—in this section or elsewhere—the ways in which the suppression of free markets has repeatedly fostered a different kind of oppression over the past century.

Virtually all socialist movements have claimed to embrace democracy, as Sanders did with a perfunctory reference to the Bill of Rights. What separated, say, Nicaragua Sandinistas, who ended up crushing political opponents, from the French Socialists, who respected the right to dissent, was in good part their attitude toward markets.

Socialists who nationalized large parts of the economy, and severely restricted the functioning of the market, crushed freedom in two ways: First, they made it impossible for citizens to engage in private economic initiative. And second, they quickly started to abuse the power to take away the livelihood of political opponents.

This history makes it all the more important for Sanders to be clear on the kind of role that he envisages for the market in the society he is setting out to create. What forms of private economic initiative would be allowed? After sitting through his speech, I was none the wiser about this basic question.

Instead of clearing, Sanders’s long-standing ambiguity about the nature of the socialism for which he stands settled over me like a sea of fog. If Sanders was coy about the details of a "socialist" economy, he was downright disdainful of the notion that a speech on socialism and authoritarianism should seriously grapple with the long history of socialist movements that have ended in dictatorship.

In his view, the threat of autocracy comes exclusively from the right. Just as in the 1930s, "America and the world are once again moving towards authoritarianism." This danger is driven by "right-wing forces of oligarchy, corporatism, nationalism, racism, and xenophobia." The only answer that will stave off fascism is, you guessed it, "democratic socialism."

Thus Sanders name-checked Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini but remained silent about Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong. Indeed, the only connection between socialism and autocracy he was willing to acknowledge is the one that exists in the feverish imagination of the ignorant right, decrying the “red-baiting” in which Republicans have long engaged.

The implication was obvious. Anybody who was hoping for a clear account of the differences between Sanders’s political ambitions and those of autocratic socialist regimes is a fellow traveler of Richard Nixon, Newt Gingrich, John Boehner, Donald Trump, and the Heritage Foundation.

Figures in some of the most successful left-wing movements of the 20th century such as Germany’s Willy Brandt, Britain’s Clement Attlee, & the USA's FDR were clear about the benefits of markets and forthright about the dangers of left-wing authoritarianism. For thinkers like Michael Walzer, the label "Democratic Socialist" entailed a deep recognition the left could be as vulnerable to autocratic temptation as the right.

A serious speech about socialism and authoritarianism would have built on the political legacy of Brandt and the philosophical legacy of Walzer. The speech Sanders gave was not serious.

No, thank goodness, not every one is "Helpless, Hapless and Hopeless! It does matter! We are sent here to be changed, not to change anything but ourselves. I have fired my Higher Power a couple times, but, for the last 20 years, I have one that works for me, if I listen properly.........

My Mentor of many years, watched me, snivel, and flop around, and asked me why I held on to something that didn't work for me? Well, Knock Me Over with a feather! I had no idea that I could do a "Trade In"!
