Funny how Bernie is willing to fire a staffer for mean words online about journalists and his Democratic opponents, yet he is unwilling to fire any of his staff for their talk of gulaging Trump supporters, abolishing the constitution, and executing the wealthy.
At the very least you’d think the Democratic frontrunner would denounce such rhetoric, rather than instructing them to (and I quote): “Be careful what you say… especially in public. Always assume that you may be being recorded.”
But I suppose Bernie has his priorities.
At this point I think the only thing that could keep Orange Man from winning is voter complacency — people who want him to win refraining from voting because they believe he cannot lose.
Lately I’ve been torn on whom I want his opponent to be. Biden’s out — tragically, because Trump would have wiped the floor with him, and the sound bites would have been glorious. (The man basically memes himself.)
Which leaves either Bernie or Bloomberg. Bernie will take the nomination if he manages to receive enough delegates, which is why the DNC is intent on keeping so many warm bodies in the ring (plus Biden) — to siphon away votes. Bloomberg will be awarded the nomination via brokered convention if their strategy proves successful.
I hope somebody buys Biden an ice cream cone afterwards or something.
This is why Bernie Sanders refuses to denounce his staff’s execute-the-opposition & abolish-the-Constitution rhetoric: because Bernie himself admires extreme authoritarian dictatorships.
Tim characterizes Bernie as the Anti-Trump: “Trump is talking about creating wealth, Bernie is talking about taking it.”
