The communist who has inexplicably and dangerously become a rock star of sorts among the young people of our nation and others who don’t really understand or care about the consequences of “feel good,” good sounding socialism, made an appearance Monday on “CBS This Morning.” Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders joined the hosts under the unblinking gaze of the ever watching eye of big government media to help nudge the lost and disheartened Democrats into the next phase of fundamental transformation.
Sure, the election of Donald Trump has effectively put out their fire for now, but the Democrats are regrouping and they never rest. They will be back and soon. With the Clinton loss Sanders has suddenly emerged as the socialist, lighter public face of communism, sage voice among Democrats. He has become the man who possibly could have delivered the White House if not the recipient of dirty tricks waged against him by the loser and his temporary home party. Sanders positions himself as analyzing why they lost but perhaps he’s just delivering the initial party propaganda offerings in the rebuilding process. The official unofficial position and statement of what is to come.
Sanders exaggerates Mr. Trump’s confident position as to the approach that needs to be taken, transforming it into “I, alone.” That’s not what he said at all, but mis-characterizing the statements of Donald Trump are as natural as breathing to these Democrat vermin. Mr. Trump always made it a practice to declare himself the leader of a movement, being not a dictator or messiah as Obama was packaged and sold, but merely the messenger of the people.
Sanders pledges to support Trump if he follows through and stands against the financial giants and Wall Street. While their influence has in the past and present, often been excessive, those companies are staffed by Americans and they do provide services; the issue is one of balance and honest leadership. Some decisions will benefit them, others won’t. A predatory opposition party will always be able to find something to latch on to.
He identified several areas in which they have a common interest with the president elect, such as rebuilding the infrastructure, raising wages, ending disastrous trade policies, and pay equity for women. These are all issues that Mr. Trump has already addressed and made part of his campaign, though wage increases would come from natural competition rather than government mandates. Trump already pays women working for him a wage equal to their male counterparts.
Is Sanders sincere or simply setting the stage for later admonishments that will provide a foundation for midterms and 2020? Sanders says “there needs to be a profound change in the way the Democrat Party does business. It’s not good enough to have a liberal elite. I come from the white working class and I am deeply humiliated that the Democrat Party cannot talk to the people from where I came from.”
It’s worth noting that Sanders has renounced his affiliation with the Democrats following his “loss” to Clinton and gone back to his independent socialist identity. He’s not willing to affiliate with them, probably not openly Marxist enough, but he can still tell them what they should be doing, acting as their change agent.
Sanders seemingly can’t help himself, although it was undoubtedly part of his script, belittling our President-elect, saying, “You know, it’s very easy for a president to take on little girls who wear head scarves or Muslim, take on Latinos and minorities. Little bit harder to take on Wall Street and the drug companies and the insurance companies.” Sanders has a short memory as that was exactly who he opposed during his campaign, unlike the Democrat who was sleeping in their offices on the couch, with her palm outstretched.
Trump didn’t go after any little girls in head scarves, although the Muslim charges, when associated with terrorism are more substantive. He’s not a racist, the Latino claim is the familiar and worn-out Democrat smear.
Sanders says the excuse of blaming Comey is empty, that she should have won by ten points and that the question is why did millions of working class Americans who voted for Obama turn their backs on her. Maybe he’s not buying the argument that all Republicans are closet homosexuals who hate women. He could buy the one that they want prosperity rather than government handouts, the respect that goes with providing for your family through your own accomplishments rather than signing up for big brother’s handouts.
He says, “I think a lot of people do not think the Democrat Party is standing with them, that has got to change. That is, among other reasons, why I am supporting Keith Ellison, who will shake up the Democrat Party.”
Keith Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress, is an Obama of the future has the support of communist Bernie Sanders. The danger of Sanders and Ellison combining to create a combined youth and Islamic base, a combination of the unaware and the predators, is a serious and very real threat.
Sanders isn’t addressing the middle class, he’s for creating a single working class under the elites. He’s following the lead of his predecessors, Marx and Engels, who wrote in their Communist Manifesto:
“But not only has the bourgeoisie forged the weapons that bring death to itself; it has also called into existence the men who are to wield those weapons – the modern working class – the proletarians.”
