A Bernieverse of Socialist Douche Crockery

I view rabid Bernie Sanders supporters much like I view rabid Paulians (fanatical supporters of former Congressman Ron Paul) – as somewhat unhinged conspiritards in dire need of something or someone to worship. (By the way, notice I said “rabid” and “fanatical.” If you count yourself as one of those, by all means, screech!) They gaze adoringly at their would-be savior. They invoke His name in every discussion (e.g. See? Bernie Sanders said this same thing years ago… or Ron Paul predicted the economic collapse…). They post absurd memes and worship their politician-prince at a level that’s beyond weird.

Ehhhh. Creepy!

Ehhhh. Creepy!

And the even creepier…

OMG! EEK!

OMG! EEK!

And of course both sets of nuts claim the establishment is somehow clubbing their savior over the head like a baby seal, artificially spiking their successes, and influencing the media to ignore and silence them.

The Berntards are currently the standard-bearers for the “media wants to silence my candidate” conspiracy theories. Their latest – debunked by PolitiFact – is that Bernie was a clear winner in the Democrat debate, and CNN spiked polls supporting this insane contention, because HILLARY!

Problem with conspiracy theories is that most of the time they’re imbecilic inanities uttered by frothing fruitcakes (See: Alex Jones and InfoWars) that are mostly wrong.

CNN didn’t delete its poll.

The poll showing Sanders way ahead is here on Facebook through CNN.com/vote. It’s not on CNN’s website, but it’s not clear that it ever was on CNN’s website. 

[…]

CNN’s digital team used a Facebook app to run live polls of users about what they thought of the debate as it was happening.

And of course, the Berntards, much like the Ronulans dogpiled the poll and then complained it was deleted, because BERNIE is the man! And no, he’s not a socialist.

Good lord!

Yeah, I know one of those retards. “Bernie is not a socialist! He believes in private property! I know. I read stuff!”

This is where I feel compelled once again to whip out my old blog about whether or not Obama is a socialist, because it does explain to the slow of mind what that term means.

…there are degrees of socialism, just like there are degrees of libertarianism. While this one is by far not the most odious, it’s still noxious by its very nature. It punishes achievement. It strives to force the so-called “haves” to work for the benefit of the “have nots.” It claims to strive to help the needy, but instead keeps them effectively chained to government handouts, while others work to support said handouts and pay more and more each year.

Sanders by his own admission is a democratic socialist. This doesn’t mean he’s not a socialist. There are varied degrees of socialism, but leftists don’t want you to understand that, because “socialism” has negative connotations in most people’s minds… something having to do with the Soviet Union… Cold War… you know, that stuff.

“It’s not socialism, it’s social democracy, which is a big difference,” said Mike Konczal, an economic policy expert at the left-wing Roosevelt Institute. Social democracy, Mr. Konczal noted, “implies a very active role for capitalism in the framework.”

Hell, Teh Bern™ himself acknowledged and admitted this!

While the social democrats of today have, for the most part, abandoned that whole “government must own all means of production” thing, they have no problem with public management of it, or government control of it. They want the welfare state. They want regulation. They want equality of outcome, which goes way beyond the equality of opportunity most of us would agree is desirable. Sure, capitalism exists, but it’s muzzled by the state.

The democratic socialists such as Sanders have not abandoned their hope for social ownership of major industries. While all of us oppose corporatism, Sanders takes it a step further. He wants worker-owned cooperatives. He wants to use government force to break up Wall Street firms. He wants to control salaries by capping CEO pay, as if he’s more qualified to decide how much their work is worth than the companies they run. If you don’t think that’s socialism, I’ve got this bridge… Hell, he barely understands supply and demand, but he wants to have control of corporations?? Gee… I wonder how many competent, capable CEOs would want to work to run successful businesses for the pittance Bernieverse would allot them as a salary, even as their companies pay more and more in taxes to operate in the United States?

This.

This.

In Bernieverse, the $18 trillion price tag of Bernie nutjobbery would be paid by lots and lots of new taxes!

I’m envisioning lots and lots of businesses ceasing operations in the United States or leaving the country altogether. Wonder who will be the producers in the United States once that stops happening… Wonder who will create jobs…

Naaaaaah. Not at all socialist!

Please put down the crack pipe!

  3. Oh, I just can’t. I have to stick my oar into this cess pool of dimwittery.

    Even Vlad the Barechested Bearrider, the former KGB Big Mahoff, knows better than Bernie. And Vlad (hubba hubba) is deeply concerned because while he sits on a massive reserve puddle of oil and unmined methane pockets in Siberia, he can’t control the price of crude oil on the commodities market… so his rich friends are complaining to him about not having enough kopeks and rubles or something.

    Don’t worry. When Bernie’s Brigade has to stand in long, unmoving lines to get a loaf of bread and a few week-old sausages, they won’t think he’s quite so brilliant any more.

    I’ll go back to my free world now. Thank you!

    As I understand it, the branch(?) of socialism in which industry is privately owned but government controlled is called fascism. (aka social democracy)
