Bernie Sanders: All Round Nasty Guy and Bad Sort that you don't want to vote for, guys.

Last edited Fri Aug 28, 2015, 01:43 PM - Edit history (2)

Bernie Sanders - WHAT A TERRIBLE PERSON.

Paedophile. Draft Dodger. Racist. Out of Touch. Unelectable. SOCIALIST. White. Male.

SO, so many bad things.

He is only interested in his own opinion. He is Captain Obvious. All his supporters are white males who drive Volvos. He hates black people. Black people hate him, except the nasty black people who don't hate him.

He can't win.

Marxists don't like him.

Also, I don't know if you've noticed, but he's kinda funny-lookin'.

I also hear that he's Jewish NOT THAT I HAVE ANY PROBLEM WITH THAT.

He's old. He's angry. He's a socialist. And he's white. And he's male. And he can't win.

How could anyone vote for him?

And he dodged the draft. And he's a silent warmongerer. He says almost NOTHING about foreign policy. How secretly aggressive is that?!?!?!?! Kinda scary. And hypocritical.

He's got funny glasses. And his voice is weird. And I hear he doesn't have any congressional endorsements, so everyone in Congress hates him, too! He's a troublemaker. He's a maverick.

He has boxes in his garage. Strange boxes. In his garage. Containing mysterious things. Can we doubt that the contents of these strange boxes are sinister?

He has a drink problem. And he's a womaniser. And he probably has a huge bank account somewhere with lots of stolen money in it. And he projects his own faults onto others. And he has a pole-dancing girlfriend. And one of his friends is a rapist.

And...

he's...

a...





N A R C I S S I S T !!!!!!!


YES! A NARCISSIST! And he's pals with Glenn Greenwald! And he's in cahoots with Julian Assange! And he's having sex with Angela Merkel! And when he stands next to spindly trees he looks sinister! And if he coughs, the spittle lands on your cheek! And his socks are mis-matched! And he's UNAMERICAN!!!! And he doesn't drink beer!!! And he hangs out with freaky people! And his mind is a twisty turny labyrinth of darkness!

He's a NARCISSIST!!! OMG, how is it that no-one else can SEE this? Are they all blind? Is this like an episode of the Twilight Zone? He's going to drive us all over the edge of a cliff!

His face is slightly assymetrical! And he's JEWISH, NOT THAT I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT.

And he's jealous! Jealous, jealous, jealous of everyone else's power! HE ONLY WANTS POWER! POWER only for HIMSELF! And he hasn't got any money, except in the huge bank account with stolen money! And he's hypnotising you, YES, hypnotising you with his old world liberal fuddy-duddiness, his faux common decency and his imaginary principles! He's taking you for a ride! DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE.

And he wants to spend YOUR money. And he wants to spend YOUR money. And he wants to spend YOUR money. And he wants to spend it on DRIVING YOU OVER THE EDGE OF A CLIFF.

And he hates Hillary Clinton. And he hates Barack Obama. And he hates Bill Clinton. And he hates Joe Biden.

And he can't win. And he's unelectable. And he's white. And he's male. And he's a NARCISS-

WAIT, WAIT, I thought of something else, he's a MANIPULATOR! He's MANIPULATIVE!

And he's Jewish, NOT THAT I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT.

And he's an ideological purist. And he can't negotiate. And no-one in Congress likes him. And he doesn't have any friends.

He's a NERD.

He's a political NERD.

He's a nerdy, Jewish (not that I have ANY problem with that) NARCISSIST.

And he's a paedophile. And he can't win. Aaaaannnd...




JESUS FUCKING CHRIST, I DON'T DON'T GIVE A SHIT ANYMORE. WHEN ARE YOU ASSHOLES GONNA FUCKING GEDDIT???!!!!

THAT GODDAMN PRESIDENCY IS OURS. OURS, YOU STUPID PIECES OF SHIT. OURS. IT BELONGS TO US. WE'VE WORKED FOR IT FOR DECADES. AND YOU'RE TELLING US THAT THAT STUPID, PETTY LITTLE NERD IS A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO US? THAT FUCKING FREAK? THAT STUPID HIPPY? THAT ANNOYING LITTLE ASSHOLE THAT WON'T SHUT UP AND PLAY BALL? THAT STUPID LITTLE JERK WITH HIS CRAPPY PRINCIPLES, OH SURE, HOW'S HE GOING TO GET ANYTHING DONE? HOW'S HE GOING TO GET ANYTHING DONE WITHOUT ANY MONEY OR INVITING ANYONE TO DINNER? ABOLISHING PRIVATE PRISONS, ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? THAT'S CAMPAIGN MONEY DOWN THE FUCKING SEWER!!!

YOU BELONG TO US, ASSHOLES. WE BUY YOU, YOU OWE US, AND WE TELL YOU HOW IT WORKS. YOU ARE OUR PROPERTY AND YOUR VOTES ARE OWED TO US, THE GUYS WHO TELL YOU WHAT YOU'RE ALLOWED TO VOTE FOR. YOU WANNA LOSE, BUDDY? SURE, GO AHEAD, VOTE FOR THE FREAK.

Fact. They are very well aware of children in poverty, theirs are, Fact! They are well aware that they are being murdered by police. Fact! They are unarmed and profiled for their skin color.

They are being stalked, shot and killed at an alarming rate. Here you are telling Cali Dem HE DOES NOT CARE! You are showing your privilege here.

199. Why the contempt?

This is from Time Magazine about Sanders as a student:

He became leaders of an NAACP ally called the Congress of Racial Equality at a time when most civil rights activists were black. He was arrested while demonstrating for desegregated public schools in Chicago. (No big deal, says Sanders: “You can go outside and get arrested, too!” he jokes. “It’s not that hard if you put your mind to it.”) He once walked around Chicago putting up fliers protesting police brutality. After half an hour, he realized a police car was following him, taking down every paper he’d up, one by one. “Are these yours?” he remembers the officer telling him, holding up the stack of the fliers.

In his second year at college, Sanders made national news. On a frigid Tuesday afternoon in January, 1962 the 20-year-old from Brooklyn stood on the steps of University of Chicago administration building and railed in the wind against the college’s housing segregation policy. “We feel it is an intolerable situation, when Negro and white students of the university cannot live together in university owned apartments,” the young bespectacled student told the few-dozen classmates gathered there. Then he led them into the building in protest, and camped the night outside the president’s office. It was Chicago’s first civil rights sit-in.
***************

So at 20, he made national news leading a civil rights sit-in against segregation. Not to be rude, but did you do as much when you were 20? Sanders fight against racial inequality has continued his entire life. During the Clinton years, when Democrats started to behave more like moderate Republicans and decided "reform" welfare, Sanders voted against it. He wrote this: "The bill, which combines an assault on the poor, women and children, minorities, and immigrants is the grand slam of scapegoating legislation, and appeals to the frustrations and ignorance of the American people along a wide spectrum of prejudices."

Alternet published "20 Examples of Bernie Sanders' Powerful Record on Civil and Human Rights Since the 1950s" http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/20-examples-bernie-sanders-powerful-record-civil-and-human-rights-1950s

I think what's troubling for some Sanders' supporters is that somehow a narrative was developed that Sanders doesn't care. In fact, there's not a single candidate who would do more to fight racial injustice. If you want to learn about Sanders' positions, go to http://www.feelthebern.org.

219. Why the contempt? They have nothing else.

 

NOTHING. No policy-based arguments, no skeletons in Bernie's closet. nothing. Every pne of their attempts at smearing Bernie have been completely debunked. They are enrolled in a cult of personality, and dog knows why it's HRH they are following. What the Clintons are is apparent to anyone whose eyes are open.

This shit-slinging started a couple of days before he even announced his candidacy and it is nothing but lies and bullshit flung again and again, but it can't and won't stick. Bernie is THe Real Deal, not a Turd Way sellout interested only in self-advancement by any means available to put to the task, fair or foul.

Smell the roses and join the 99%. Think of the children in poverty. Goldman-Sachs don't care about them, do you?


Who the hell are you accusing of standing for the 1%? Those that chose Hillary? What a joke.

She stands for women and there very basic rights to chose. We have been fighting for our lives for a hundred plus years. We got to vote, yet our vote never seems to get us our rights. Don't condescend to me rhett. I am so tired of hearing OLIGARCHS as a mantra.

Try a new one. Women's rights, Voting rights, the Right not to be shot dead in the street unarmed. Profiled shot and killed and the cop, the perp goes free.

118. I had no idea she is black and find it very strange that you continually point it out and

 

think that I should treat her differently than anyone else.

My comment is one that I often use to point out to Clinton supporters that they are siding with the 1% and not the 99%. H. Clinton is a member of the 1% club. She regularly visits with Goldman-Sachs and other Wall Street friends. Her campaign is anticipating that they will raise between 1 and 2 billion dollars FROM THE 0.01% to buy her the WH thanks to Citizens United.

Ironic how Citizens United is now her friend.

Radical 'Identity Politics' will drive the Democratic Party into the Tea Party kind of craziness that is wrecking the Repuglican Party.

For some reason, Hillary Clinton brings out this kind of fanaticism in her supporters based on 'identity'. We saw that eight years ago and we are seeing is again.

She is also fond of the practice of leaving brown kids toys to play with via the fun high tech pinatas known as cluster bombs. Those are expensive little toys those things spread around for children to play with, it takes a special kinda person to do whatever they can to make sure there will not be less of them to play with.

Arabic speaking children require special love and Hillary by far has shown them so much of that special love.

231. Because that was the focus of the legislation she voted against


You might have had a point if there was a vote to outlaw guns and we could see who did not vote to outlaw them along with all the republicans which would be the only way to draw a comparison. but no such vote has yet to be taken, the cluster bomb vote was.

"The absolute majority of patients are women and children, victims of shrapnel, and most of all, fragments of cluster bombs." Reporting from a hospital in Hillah, The Mirror, a British newspaper, became graphic: "Shrapnel peppered their bodies. Blackened the skin. Smashed heads. Tore limbs. A doctor reports that 'all the injuries you see were caused by cluster bombs. The majority of the victims were children who died because they were outside.'"

Even after wars subside, after treaties are signed, after belligerents return home, cluster bombs wreak havoc on civilian life. Up to 20 percent of the bomblets fail to detonate on the first round, only to become landmines that later explode on playgrounds and farmlands. Children are drawn to cluster bomb canisters, the deadly duds that look like beer cans or toys before they explode.


I suppose you can tell me why she opposed the international communities efforts to address this, other than she has a fondness for cluster bombs that are known largely for exactly what they are known for?

Is it instead "to appear tough"
"to get financial support from the munitions industry"
"for no particular reason at all, just plain didn't bother to listen when the effects were explained in detail to her and the rest of the voting body"?

I do not think I overstated it one bit, anyone defending her fondness for such munitions to me are either just as fond of such carnage or simply just as cold when it comes to such gruesome matters that involve the effects of children playing with the "toys" left by them.

Sanders Votes for Background Checks, Assault Weapons Ban

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

WASHINGTON, April 17 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) today voted for expanded background checks on gun buyers and for a ban on assault weapons but the Senate rejected those central planks of legislation inspired by the shootings of 20 first-grade students and six teachers in Newtown, Conn.

“Nobody believes that gun control by itself is going to end the horrors we have seen in Newtown, Conn., Aurora, Colo., Blacksburg, Va., Tucson, Ariz. and other American communities,” Sanders said. “There is a growing consensus, however, in Vermont and across America that we have got to do as much as we can to end the cold-blooded, mass murders of innocent people. I believe very strongly that we also have got to address the mental health crisis in our country and make certain that help is available for people who may be a danger to themselves and others,” Sanders added.

The amendment on expanded background checks needed 60 votes to pass but only 54 senators voted for it. “To my mind it makes common sense to keep these weapons out of the hands of people with criminal records or mental health histories,” Sanders said....

Description of the Assault Weapons Ban:

Summaries for Assault Weapons Ban of 2013

The legislation bans the sale, transfer, manufacturing and importation of:

All semiautomatic rifles that can accept a detachable magazine and have at least one military feature (e.g. pistol grip, detachable stock, grenade launcher).

All semiautomatic pistols that can accept a detachable magazine and have at least one military feature (e.g. threaded barrel, a semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm).

All semiautomatic rifles and handguns that have a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.

All semiautomatic shotguns that have a folding, telescoping, or detachable stock; pistol grip; fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 5 rounds; ability to accept a detachable magazine; forward grip; grenade launcher or rocket launcher; or shotgun with a revolving cylinder.

All ammunition feeding devices (magazines, strips, and drums) capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
157 specifically-named firearms.

I also have a real problem with hybrid democrats that may make fine allies on social issues but have sold us out and joined the right on fiscal matters that have made my neighborhood poor and placed many I know in homeless situations.

I have no patience or forgiveness for such Democratic hybrids and speak openly about how I consider such the enemy of my class.

I wrote clearly about these types in an OP: New Democrats, The DLC and the Third Way.

If you really want to know anything about me before deciding wrongly what I think is important just read my journal. It is not long,

I will say I do not support Clintons cluster bomb stance, I also think there should be a mandatory background check on all firearms purchased so I do not support Sanders on this. I can easily say Clinton is as fond of children playing with cluster bombs as Sanders is as fond of felons and the insane having guns seeing as how both voted against these and be logically sound on both issues, you cant. I am sure you wont get it, as you have a definite agenda and will probably ascribe some other viewpoint I have not stated or do not hold to further your argument.

14. Clinton plays hardball, but if Bernie wins the primary and becomes the nominee,

the 'ratfucking' he will take from the establishment will be swift, thorough, cruel, untruthful, and unrelenting. We knew this going in, people. Yet, Bernie is more of a Democrat than the Democrats and what he's talking about is nothing less than another less racially biased New Deal.

No one, and I mean no one, in the establishment wants Bernie in the general election, and if he does get there, the throbbing corporate-owned propaganda organ we call the media will black him out - they will use the word 'socialist' over and over and over and over, but they won't once talk about what Bernie says on the issues.

Maybe it is foolish, but I'm an idealist by nature, and I'm tilting at this windmill one more time, because I really hate how politicians who supposedly represent my interests don't even think about any of us after we've elected them.

185. "boldface" is apt


It is the bold-facedness of their attitude that I find so contemptible.

The disgusting cynicism of trying to whip up bogus drivel about Bernie supporters... I could sort of understand their smearing of Bernie himself, as there is the (utterly soul-dead) concept of "fair game" in some political circles but the sheer recklessness of alienating a whole chunk of the Democratic base just to get the right candidate would be unforgivable to me if I were American. It shows a paucity of good judgement that would lose elections big time if anyone tried it in my little country. I don't make that statement idly - they did attempt to smear the Scots and they paid for it.

Their candidate might still win, of course, but the games being played here will not be forgotten and they do not understand what they are doing.

How they can possibly expect anyone to believe that there's anything even vaguely alarming at this stage about the possibility of a Republican administration is completely indecipherable to me, that carnival of nonsense is dead in the water. We need moderates to see them off? EXCREMENT.

The "wrong candidate" story is one thing - "you're all elitists" is what I'd expect from Glen Beck, not Democrats.

FOUL.

Thank you, sir.

A double-talking, self-serving, war-mongering politician who pals around with some of the vilest and most despicable people on earth (Blankfein. Kissinger and Murdoch just for starters) and they seem to think she's the pope, Mandela, Gandhi and the Dalai Lama all rolled together and topped with a sprinkling of saints. I have never in my adult life - Ford was president when I turned 18 - seen such nauseating and delusional behavior from Democrats. Ever.

I support Bernie so strongly because of what he stands for. If Liz Warren were running instead of him I'd support her for exactly the same reason.

No Clinton has EVER had one more principle than self-advancement by whatever means are around to be put to that purpose.

194. Well I AM half-English, actually.





My mother's from London.

Bernie has a brother Larry in the UK already. He ran as a Green party candidate.

Bernie may wear a kilt if he swears undying loyalty to my clan. Otherwise NEVER!!!

A characteristic of the Highland clan system was that clansmen felt loyalty only to God, their monarch, and their Chief. The Jacobite Risings demonstrated the dangers to central government of such warrior Highland clans, and as part of a series of measures the government of King George II imposed the "Dress Act" in 1746, outlawing all items of Highland dress including kilts (although an exception was made for the Highland Regiments) with the intent of suppressing highland culture. The penalties were severe; six months' imprisonment for the first offense and seven years' transportation for the second. The ban remained in effect for 35 years.

Thus, with the exception of the Army, the kilt went out of use in the Scottish Highlands, but during those years it became fashionable for Scottish romantics to wear kilts as a form of protest against the ban. This was an age that romanticized "primitive" peoples, which is how Highlanders were viewed. Most Lowlanders had viewed Highlanders with fear before 1745, but many identified with them after their power was broken. The kilt, along with other features of Gaelic culture, had become identified with Jacobitism, and now that this had ceased to be a real danger it was viewed with romantic nostalgia.

Once the ban was lifted in 1782, Highland landowners set up Highland Societies with aims including "Improvements" (which others would call the Highland clearances) and promoting "the general use of the ancient Highland dress". The Celtic Society of Edinburgh, chaired by Walter Scott, encouraged lowlanders to join this antiquarian enthusiasm. Also in Ireland, any form of Gaelic customs was outlawed by the Penal laws.

Idolatry is supporting a person who voted to give GWB the go-ahead to massacre 200,000 people, and give the bill to us.
Whether she did this out of stupidity, (I don't buy that for a minute) or cold. calculating political expediency, this vote alone makes her unfit to lead our nation. I won't bother getting into the whole "owned by Wall Street" thing..... Idolatry, indeed.

Thank you for posting Hillary's comments regarding her Iraq vote. Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, who posts here claiming that her Iraq vote is some kind of deal breaker-- that she is some kind of war monger who supported the death of hundreds of thousands of people-- is exactly as you can plainly see.

But that's OK. It's an insular few that find validation in every right-wing meme ever flung at Hillary. And who now are martyred because their champion of the season now enjoys a bit of national campaign scrutiny.

I wish we had a hall of fame or a sticky we could vote this in for- it's a perfect sum up of everything Team Hillary has tried to "achieve" here, all perfectly framed in one post.

Congrats Team Hillary- this is your work. Who and what you have done in the name of your candidate. Who knows what you will be asked to do tomorrow? Or what you'll simply come up with yourselves.

as the Catholic Church doesn't support LGBT rights, is behind the times insofar as women's rights are concerned and the Catholic Church is wealthy, the issues of economic injustice, great disparities in wealth and global warming climate change must all be false as well.

Therefor Bernie is a liar, Bad Bernie, not to mention all those silly scientists.

I haven't been as strident vs Clinton supporters because that is not the group that I affiliate with.
What I do care about is the messaging and potential damage about and to my chosen candidate from within our group.
All of the vitriol and alert stalking has to stop somewhere, and it seems to me that if our candidate best represents the people then it should start with us.
I have not been perfect by any stretch, but I'm working to make both my candidate more attractive to undecided folks and DU the haven against M$M bullshit that it was at one time.
