A most remarkable thing.
Can you imagine your reaction if someone came up to you and announced that he was a Nazi, and that he was proud of it, and that he thought that you should think highly of him for it, and maybe even vote for him for a high elective office?
What would be your reaction? Well, if you were civilized and polite and all, you’d laugh in the dork’s face.
Now, how about if that same dork, instead of calling himself a Nazi, announced that he was a child molester, or a murderer, or a rapist, and he was out and proud of it, and wanted you to think highly of him and all that?
You don’t have to tell me your reaction.
Well one particular dork, Bernie Sanders, has announced — openly — that he’s a socialist.
Socialism is the single most blood-drenched death cult in the history of humanity. Responsible for more than 120 million deaths by torture, assassination, starvation, flat-out murder, bludgeoning, poisoning, or whatever, in the last century alone.
Socialism has not spent a day on this earth — since it was codified, documented and formulated in the latter part of the 19th Century, and honed and refined in the early and mid- 2oth Century, in which its adherents were not murdering people.
Legendary 20th Century socialists such as the Soviet Union’s Josef Stalin, China’s Mao tse-Tung, and Cambodia’s Pol Pot, made everyone’s favorite 20th Century bogeyman, Adolf Hitler — himself a socialist — look like a Girl Scout.
Yet Bernie Sanders looks you right in the eye and says that he’s a socialist, and that you should think highly of him for it, and vote for him for high elective office.
It should be as socially repellent to say, “I’m a socialist” as it is to say, “I’m a child molester.” Yet 40% or more of the Democrat Party does think highly of the moral equivalent of a child molester.
An even greater percentage of the Democrat Party’s voter base has pronounced itself prepared to vote for the moral equivalent of a child molester — over a Republican — to be the President of the United States, if he is selected as the party’s nominee in the 2016 Presidential election.
