Posted on 08/15/2018 6:13:56 PM PDT by Libloather
During an interview on The Late Show, Tuesday, Senator Bernie Sanders declared socialist ideas to be mainstream, after host Stephen Colbert suggested its hurting Democrats at the ballot box.
Mr. Colbert pointed out that most of the candidates Mr. Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaigned for lost their primaries.
Why do you need to call yourself socialists? Because thats freighted with so much negativity in the United States, the late-night comedian asked. Maybe theres a little taint to socialism that turns people off?

THREE MANSIONS FOR EVERYONE! The Bern is an independent socialist. How does that work, exactly?
Give me one of your mansions, there, Bernie. Then I’ll believe your BS.
Yeah. Just ask Nicolas Maduro.
[Mr. Sanders pushed back on Mr. Colberts argument, saying that capitalism is out of control in America and the people are sick and tired of it.]
The man is a lunatic. The amazing part is he said it with a straight face.
Someone needs to ask the Bern WHERE HAS SOCIALISM WORKED?
Communism kills and these fascist fktards have millions to shield themselves from the rules they want to inflict on everyone else.
There’s a reason people come from around the world to receive American medical attention and it isn’t Obamacare or single payer.
Socialism worked very well in Germany until they ran out of Jews to steal from and kill.
If capitalism is out of the mainstream then why is young America trying so many startup businesses (food trucks, ride programs, apps, media marketing, etc)?
Why does everyone brag about having a side hustle?
I hate it.
When I was a kid and heard about the Second Amendment as a way to protect freedom I always thought yeah cool. I understood it, but I thought in the America we lived in it was an artifact and would never really be needed. Now I look at my rifle and wonder what the future may hold. So many people like Bernie espousing a murderous philosophy and I’m the guest of honor at their party
“..ommunism kills and these fascist fktards have millions to shield themselves...”
This is America, and there are still Americans here. There isn’t going to be a big enough “shield” for them to hide behind if they try to pull that sh*t here.
They will be opposed.

Liberals know that a certain percentage of the population wants to believe a lie. So they provide them, on a regular basis.
Notice how that sleaze Colbert just wants Bernie and the rest of them to disguise who they really are to make his socialist ideas less threatening. The end justifies the means.
Karl Marx HATED the middle class.
He wanted them DEAD.
He wanted their blood FLOWING in the streets.
The WHOLE POINT of ‘The Communist Manifesto’ is to get rid of the middle class.
You can NOT use Marx’s ideas, ***ANY*** of Marx’s ideas to help the middle class.
It’s not possible.
But you middle class Marxists just LOVE Bernie and his Socialism. :)
BTW - renaming something, doesn’t change what it is.
This topic was covered in Hannity last night. He had some young reporter there using Norway as her model and they agreed that capitalism was propping up socialist benefits. So essentially socialism was successful in Norway not because of it’s positive aspects but in spite of them.
I would love to see Bernie confronted with that!
