Why Settle for Elizabeth Warren When We Can Have a Real Socialist?

bernie-sanders-550x366

Grumbling lefties are complaining that Alinsky Gal Hillary Clinton just isn’t far enough to the left to suit them. Instead they’re cheering on a run by Elizabeth Warren whose political career consisted of

1. Being a high-paid Obama government crony

2. Winning a senate race in one of the most liberal states in the country

They would have a better shot at running Bill de Blasio for president. At least he can plausibly deliver a speech without sounding like a liberal college professor… which is exactly what Elizabeth Warren is.

But progressives don’t have to settle for moderate Communists like Bill de Blasio and Elizabeth “You Didn’t Build That, the Collective Did” Warren. Why not go Full Socialist with Bernie Sanders?

Bernie Sanders is a Socialist independent who caucuses with the Dems. Considering how thoroughly the left has moved the Democratic Party to the left, he could just make the full switch.

“That is honestly not me,” he continued. “Anyone who really, really wants to be president is slightly crazy because this is an unbelievably difficult job given the crises that this country faces today.”

Still, Sanders says he is willing to consider making a run if no one else with progressive views similar to his ends up taking the plunge.
It is essential, he said, to have someone in the 2016 presidential campaign who is willing to take on Wall Street, address the “collapse” of the middle class, tackle the spread of poverty and fiercely oppose cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

Also, addressing global warming needs to be a top priority, not an afterthought, Sanders said.
“Under normal times, it’s fine, you have a moderate Democrat running, a moderate Republican running,” Sanders said. “These are not normal times. The United States right now is in the middle of a severe crisis and you have to call it what it is.”

These aren’t normal times. We’ve got a Socialist in the White Houses who refuses to use the “S” word. We’ve got a college professor who claims to be a Cherokee when she isn’t and won’t admit that she’s a Socialist when she is.

Bernie Sanders is at least completely open about being a Socialist. Why vote for lying Socialists like Elizabeth Warren, when you can vote for an honest Socialist like Bernie Sanders?

If you’re worried that Bernie Sanders won’t go around saying crazy things just like Elizabeth Warren... worry not.

The climate change debate “reminds me in some ways of the debate taking place in this country and around the world in the late 1930s,” Sanders said during a Senate hearing on the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2011 budget

“And during that period with Nazism and fascism growing — a real danger to the United States and Democratic countries all over the world — there were people in this Congress, in the British parliament saying, ‘don’t worry! Hitler is not real! It’ll disappear! We don’t have to be prepared to take it on.’”

Your move, Warren.

    I don’t know why a leftie like Sanders has any problem with Nazism or fascism – both are leftwing ideologies. They may not completely agree with the agendas, but most leftists would love to have the power to put conservatives into re-education camps or the Gulag because they won’t agree with their worldview.

    They also would love to eliminate private property rights.

    As indicated on this website, leftists are totalitarians at heart. They don’t tolerate dissent, which is why they try to shout down conservative speakers.

      True. Most people don’t realize that “Nazi” is just shorthand for the German National Socialist Party. Nazism wasn’t some exotic political ideology that sprung up out of nowhere. Nazism has its roots in 19th century Germany and the birth of the full-scale welfare state there under Otto von Bismarck. In fact, one could trace the philosophical origins of Nazism back to Immanuel Kant, the Prussian thinker who said that reality is just a figment of our imaginations and it could be whatever anyone wanted it to be. And if you wanted it to be about a master race that would rule the world, that’s what reality would be. Islam is just fine with that kind of thinking. Hitler is a hero to Muslims.

      Bernie Sanders is a Left social democrat, a la Jack Newfield, Irving Howe or Barbara Ehrenreich. The idea that he would form common cause with Nazis and fascists is ludicrous. His political sensibility is utterly the opposite of that. I disagree with him on most things, by the way, but to call him a natural Nazi ally is a cheap shot.

        Not much difference between fascists and socialists, the primary one, near as I can tell, is who owns productivity. Under socialism it’s the state’s, under fascism it is nominally in the hands of citizens. I know that seems like a big difference but it isn’t because in both cases the state controls productivity; the citizen owners in fascism can’t do anything without the state’s approval. In both cases the state controls just about everything. Big government is big government, by its very nature it wants to control everything. The larger government gets the less freedom you have.

    I believe that Socialism (like Islam) is a psychiatric disorder that calls for medication in mild cases and a straightjacket and secure hospitalization in the most severe cases.

      You could be right…but I would prefer the bloody purge approach to ridding us of leftists.

      It is a form of mental disease…..the leftists are masochists too…they won’t be pleased until our nation is another third world disaster like Zimbabwe or Somalia, wracked by poverty, ignorance and despair. Just look at the history of socialism: East Germany, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, North Korea, Albania, Stalinist Russia…..yeah, let’s give it another try.

    Kudos to Daniel Greenfield for writing about topics no one else is discussing, but I don’t think Bill de Blasio is any less radical than Bernie Sanders. If anything, the opposite is true since Sanders’ model of an ideal society is Sweden while De Blasio’s is Cuba. I feel sorry for the decent minority in New York City.

    Oddly enough I have some respect for Bernie; at least he’s honest in what he believes and less hypocritical than most Dems. He also expressed concerns over the impact of increased immigration on American workers at least until the bribe became too high for him to turn down. He also seems to have less of a visceral hatred for his own country than the African caucus currently occupying the White House.

    Vermont’s largest Employer are Hospitals followed by Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream. It’s a total subsidized welfare state with most of the Voters being brainwashed left wing students at UVM. Bernie Sanders is just a socialist in training to be a communist, just like the rest of liberals.

    ms. warren is a big liar, of course she is not a Cherokee, but she is a rich lefty which is a very bad combination. she made her money under the american conservative capitalist system but she wants everyone else to live under socialism which is what we have now with 50% of people depending on gov’t handouts on purpose. she is nothing but an ugly hypocrite.
