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.”
Something you guys need to understand is that the “Alt-Right” doesn’t really exist. The vast majority white identitarians would more appropriately be called Alt-Left because they are left-of-center authoritarians who are SOCIALLY conservative.
The mainstream right these days isn’t particularly socially conservative except when it comes to abortion. (And the same holds true of the mainstream left being “liberal”, only to an exponentially greater degree.)
The best thing Turning Point USA could do right now (along with the mainstream right in general) is stop identifying as conservative and TAKE BACK the mantle of liberalism.
And for the record, the Alt-Lefters who voted for Trump only did so because they believed the garbage the MSM was spewing about the bad orange man. And right now their strategy is to divide his base and get one of these insane Democrats elected because they believe economic collapse to be the most expedient way to bring about their white ethnostate.
Which means their strategy is essentially the same as Bernie’s, only instead of Democratic Socialism, they’d be saving us all with their Americanized version of National Socialism.
The purpose of Sanders’s and Warren’s “Wealth Tax” isn’t to raise money for the government. The purpose isn’t even to “address wealth inequality”; the purpose is to feed the sick fetishists on the left who want to destroy those who have that which they do not and wouldn’t be able to hold onto were it to suddenly fall into their laps.
Bernie & Warren are pandering to people who despise the rich for being rich. But what’s truly terrifying is the root of that hatred: the very notion of wealth itself.
Don’t believe me? Consider that disgusting mantra they’re always so quick to mouth about money being the root of all evil. Without money, what would we use as a tool of exchange? The only alternative would be force — or the threat of it.
Bernie & Warren know exactly what they are doing. They aren’t NPCs like Beto & AOC. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are EVIL.
I really think Bernie’s goal is to usher in a complete collapse of the present economic system — which is the only way America could EVER become a socialist country.
As far as Warren goes, her grasp on economics is tenuous as best. I don’t think she understands (much less cares) where half the crap she’s calling for is going to lead. She’s evil, but she’s proven largely incapable of anticipating the consequences of her own actions.
Yes, National Socialism is REAL socialism. It’s a political ideology. The National Socialist German Workers’ Party was a political party founded by National Socialists, and under Hitler it would later adapt many of Mussolini’s economic policies.
The state controlled the means of production. They simply employed certain measures allowing for the appearance of a market system, but instead of those “markets” being subject to market forces, they were controlled entirely by the government.
To put things in perspective: Under the New Economic Policy, the Soviets employed actual capitalistic measures. Does that mean the Soviets were not socialists — or that the Soviet Union was “far right”? 🤔🤔🤔
