Dean: Socialist victory equals win for Dems

Answer me this question: Why does Ann Coulter get pie whipped at her for saying in print what Howard Dean now says openly?

For some reason, if the world's most recognizable conservative makes the assertion, it's satanic venom. But if the head of the Democratic Party spouts it, the media yawns and goes about its day as normal.

But such was life on May 10, 2005. Consider the irony.

At 5:23 a.m., in New York City, few televisions tuned in to see it. But if you did what you saw was a crowd that was later estimated at between 250,000 to 300,000 Georgians packing Freedom Square to cheer on the person they see as a "Freedom Fighter" – President George W. Bush.

The president's speech was stirring, and the Georgians applauded wildly. He spoke articulately of the fight for freedom and honored the sacrifice Georgians had made to even be having that very event. He spoke with great conviction of the moral greatness of sovereignty and self-determination. He said all of this on the soil that use to be home to one of the socialist Soviet states.

Meanwhile, in Weirdsville, USA, a disturbing story ran in a small Vermont paper. (Come to think of it, does Vermont have a large paper?)

According to the Bennington Banner, Howard Dean – whose job it is to enhance the prospects of the Democratic Party – chose instead to come out in support of a card-carrying socialist in Vermont's clamorous race for Jim Jeffords' soon-to-be-open U.S. Senate seat.

Instead of backing a Democrat for the upcoming Senate Race, Dean departed from his own party and endorsed the state's only congressman.

"A victory for Bernie Sanders, is a win for Democrats," said Dean. "Bernie is a strong candidate," he added.

Did we mention that Dean gets paid to endorse actual Democrats? Members of the socialist, communist, Green, and a whole host of other parties may in fact be indistinguishable from Democrats, but Terry McAuliffe never confused the matter by endorsing one.

Evidently Dean sees so many similarities in the socialist agenda, he's betting he can endorse someone outside his own party and get by with it. Of course, conservatives have seen the similarities for years, but seem to be pelted by boys who throw like sissies whenever they stand up and say so.

Mind you, Vermont is so small (and insignificant) that it is easier to become a senator than a congressman. But leaving its small population aside, Vermont prides itself on being "progressive," where evidently their Republicans are Democrats, and their Democrats are socialists.

It is unfortunate that our public school systems are doing such a horrible job teaching our children anything truthful about history that they can no longer articulate why a person running for public office as a socialist is a bad thing. Lucky for smart kids, we have Ann Coulter, David Horowitz and others who are able to articulately lay out some of the distinct differences. Of course, any time Ann is given a stage to speak from, she is threatened with airborne pies thrown by men who have worse aim and throwing abilities than most girly girls.

The media, Gov. Dean, and the Democratic Party at large may not find it objectionable that Dean endorsed the current-day equivalent of the Kremlin to run for the U.S. Senate.

Fortunately, most Americans still do. And hopefully the Democratic and socialist agendas will be prevented from victory in Vermont.

Democratic and socialist agenda? I apologize for the redundancy.

Hmmm, I see an 08 Vermont TV ad saying. "Dean doesn't trust Dems in Vermont. Why should you? Vote Joe Republican for President!"

[Vermont,] where evidently their Republicans are Democrats, and their Democrats are socialists.

Sounds a lot like Massachusetts. Maybe when California slides into the ocean, New England won't be able to have an effect on the electoral process.

He [Bush] spoke with great conviction of the moral greatness of sovereignty and self-determination.

Does Bush ever listen to his own words? Sovereignty is something this country needs to hold on to.

Leftism is inconsistent with truthfulness, and just as "liberalism" has been turned by leftists into a euphemism for "socialism," the term "socialism" is itself a euphemism. Leftists use the word "society" when they mean nothing other than government - so the accurate translation from Newspeak "socialism" to plain English is "governmentism." IOW, tyranny.

If Sanders doesn't change to the Democratic Party but runs for Senate on the Democratic line, that's nothing unusual. Third parties endorse major party candidates all the time . . .

Nearly all of the Demagogic Party leadership and candidates are socialists in any reasonable senses of the word, but they know that you can't (yet) win national elections in the USA under that label..... so instead they resort to constant subterfuge and deception. If the news media weren't so completely warped and biased they would label every self-styled 'progressive' as a socialist or "far left" candidate. Nancy Pelosi calls herself a member of this Congressional Progressive Caucus and would be labeled as a socialist by an honest and informed news media. Even various communist parties often present themselves as 'progressives' all over the world - that's the favored term when domestic politics won't allow them to actually state their aims openly and honestly.

More than 4 dozen member of Congress are self-identified in the current "Progressive Caucus" and at times the list tops 100:

http://bernie.house.gov/pc/members.asp

Bernie Sanders is merely a bit more honest and open about being a socialist because he gets away with it in the People's Republic of Vermont - but much of the Demagogic Party is with him on nearly every issue.

Someone should find an analysis of voting records and see how many other Demagogic reps and senators are very very close to the record of Bernie Sanders. I'll bet there are dozens who differ little if at all from the 'socialist' Bernie Sanders.....

http://www.adaction.org/votingrecords.htm

Here it is, just looking at 2004, on the 20 votes selected by the ADA as most critical to leftist causes, Bernie Sanders (avowed socialist) rates 95%, but Nancy Pelosi and a whole slew of others rated 100%!!! There are PLENTY of the Demagogues who rated 90-100%, right up there with socialist Bernie, as ideal reps for the left.

It would be most interesting to see over 5, 10, and 20 years how many of them rate just as far left as Bernie....

You sure enough made my point. The only difference is that Sanders is more honest than the rest by openly laying claim to the Socialist label.

Great post!

"The only difference is that Sanders is more honest than the rest by openly laying claim to the Socialist label"


Exactly! ....and that's why the Sanders candidacy for Senate is actually a terrific opportunity for Republicans all over the country to bring out the socialist heart of Pelosi and friends. Every candidate of the Demagogic Party in 2006 who has a voting record reasonably close to socialist Bernie Sanders should be compared to him at every opportunity. This is actually a great opportunity - it wouldn't work as long as Sanders is a 'mere' congressman, but with him running for Senate I think there are quite a few close races where the Democratic candidate should be neatly entwined with Bernie Sanders.... and watch all the lying leftists scurry to try to disown their own voting records.

Dean, as expected will drive the democrats to a well deserved grave.

He actually, almost makes Terrible Terry look kinda' reasonable in a sad ironic way.

"Hmmm, I see an 08 Vermont TV ad saying. "Dean doesn't trust Dems in Vermont. Why should you? Vote Joe Republican for President!"

Sorry, my friend, both you and McCullough, are sadly mistaken if you (or anyone else) thinks this state (as it stands now) will vote for a R (unless, or course, he's a RINO, like our present Gov, Douglas, or a far left lib, posing as an R, such as Jeffords) then you know little about Socialist Republic of Vermont.

Vermont has the dubious distinction of being the ONLY state in which GW got fewer votes in 04 than in 2000.

First of all, out of a pop of about 600,000, there are ONLY about 8 of us Conservatives (soon to be 7; see my tag--13 days and a wakeup) and though I may be exaggerating a tad, I'm NOT that far off.

Grew up here in the 50's and it was a nice, conservative, place to live.

Then, in the 70's Bernie (Sanders) moved up here, got involved with politics, and its been, all downhill from there.

The ONLY reason Dean became Gov., was because Dick Snelling (R) died of a heart attack and The Screamer was Lt. Guv at the time.

Snelling, when he died (and that was 14 years ago) was somewhat of a moderate Pube, but he was as close to being a conservative, as Vermont will see in a long, long, time.

Anyway, I'll continue to be willing to wager that Vermont (on any level or criteria anyone wishes to advance) has got to be in the top 10 most liberal states in our great, Republic.

We have Pat (The leaker of classified info) Leahy, whose voting record is as (if not more) liberal than Kennedy's.

Then as our other Sen., we have "Jum-in-bed-with-rats" Jim Jeffords.

Then our only Rep., is of course--soon to be Senator--Sanders.

And, I won't EVEN get into local politics, but will throw this one out as example of tyranny and off the rails politics up here.

As of last month, not only can you not smoke in restaurants and bars, but I can no longer go to my local VFW or American Legion (that's right folks, PRIVATE CLUBS) and have a cold one with my Nam Vet buds and light up.

Bye-bye La-la land.
