Bernie Sanders is a limited hangout coward who used to talk the talk but take not effective action EVER, and critically should have stepped the fuck up in 2016 and shouted about the corruption that kept him from taking the presidency, or died trying (and/or even if TPTSNB were to take out everyone he cared about), and anyone who thought things would be different in 2020 is a fucking idiot.

TL;DR: Bernie is a cuck.

The Coco PsyOp has been planned for decades.

I wouldn't be surprised if they said they're planning a pandemic and the last thing they want is a Jewish guy in the Whitehouse when the super hoax is launched.

I agree. That would be a foolish plan.

One of the many political grifters who feign a veil of socialism and leverage class-divisions, greed and envy to win elections.

He's arguably the oldest, literally and figuratively, to use this shtick. He basically became the template that Elizabeth Warren, and more recently AOC, used to win their elections.

"Have a problem in your life? Well look at that person over there who has more than you! He caused it! Why yes, I have three homes. Why do you ask?"

My favorite Bernie moment was when he couldn't admit to being a millionaire in a Fox News town hall interview thing. He ducked and weaved for like 3 minutes straight. It's retarded because he wrote a best selling book and he absolutely deserves his measly $1 million.

He's either retarded or a genius grifter. One or the other.

He literally takes all of societies ills that can be tracked back to government policies and then blames rich people.

Wealth inequality worsening since 1970s? What year did we go off the gold standard?

Labor union participation worsening since mid 1960's? What year did the government start to allow immigration from the 3rd world?

Healthcare is too expensive since the 1960's? What year did the the government became the biggest purchaser of healthcare, driving truly private healthcare basically out of business, but refused to negotiate down drug prices, service prices, etc?

The list is endless.

    True. But he's using rich people as a scapegoat as opposed to the policies that they created. He blames their being rich as the problem, not the policies they support that enrich them. Subtle different I grant you, but it matters.

    My vote is grifter, just not genius. He was kicked out of a Vermont commune in 1971, not only for talking politics while not working like everyone else, but also for keeping the other residents from working by running his mouth. I call those types productivity vampires. They will wreck your labor force if you don't get them under control or get rid of them.

    Bernie Sanders Part 1

    Who would have ever guessed that the neo-liberal communist, Bernie Sanders, is also anti-Christian?

    For those who don't know, Bernie Sanders is a Jewish freemason who is coy about his religion.

    The reason for this is he lived on Kibbutz Sha’ar HaAmakim which is Stalinist in their outlook. He has vast support in the USA from Socialists. He is a partner of the Chabad-Lubavitchers and was instrumental in helping them put their giant ahistorical menorahs in front of city halls across the country. What’s wrong with saying that people who have rejected Jesus the Christ are condemned Bernie? [Rejection is rejection; it isn't a curse.] After all, didn’t you write that a woman when having intercourse with her man enjoys fantasizing being raped by three men? What about the fraud your wife committed while president of the now closed Burlington College? What is the relationship between Talmudic Judaism, fraud, communism, rape, and your irrational anti-Christian stance Mr. Sanders? Are you running mop-up duty for your Chabad handlers ensuring that only Christians who don’t believe their faith are appointed to government offices? JPG

    ^ ^ ^ Bernie Sanders has no problem with religion and government mixing as long as its his racial-supremacist Talmudic Judaism.


    ^ ^ ^ Here’s Mr. Sanders who is offended by Christianity writing an essay on rape.

    Bernie Sanders is a left-leaning Zionist who supported Israel even after its 2015 escalations of the slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza.

    Understand, firstly, that your country is incorporated. A vote for a candidate simply means you make a contract with a person you like in upholding the UNITED STATES corporation &c., its simply a contract. Would a corporation, one of the largest in the world; an incorporated congress and all the monied interests allow a candidate to make a contract with the people and corporation that would conflict with said monied interest? No, they would not. Why then do you think Sanders, after supposedly being cheated out of the race would then go on to promote a corporatists career?

    Sander's "not fair game" rhetoric in 2016 was his way of saying he will eventually drop out and endorse Clinton, which he did. Does it not remind you of how Hillary Clinton endorsed Obama?

    And what happened? Many avid, and ignorant supporters of Sanders listened and voted for Clinton.

    And those who questioned his actions were slandered and smeared. Even those who stuck to their principles in seeing through the psychological operation were nonetheless held hostage to it. They evoked the idea that Sanders needed secret service protection because there was a possibility of "potentially violent confrontations with disturbed people..." further illustrating that the narratives are all planned in advance.

    It is as if, the monied interests let the candidates say whatever they want in the primaries as long as the people eventually support whoever the monied interests want in the national election. Could Sanders just be another bonafide Obama?

    Part 2

    Bernie Sanders

    Progressives, historically pro-central banking warmongers and interventionists for the so-called spreading of freedom, justice and democracy, i.e. the Woodrow Wilson types, have now transformed themselves into the proponents of social change who cannot find their spines when the colonial regime in Israel bombs the crowded ghetto of Gaza. But that is not so much a surprise with Sanders when he is on the list of Israeli-American dual citizens in the USA 114th Congress. And in a DailyBeast article, titled 'Even Left-Wing Politicians Can't Quit Israel,' Sanders states:

    "look man—i'm a politician with multiple constituencies—why should I alienate one just so you can write a story?"

    Sanders not only defends military contracts that benefit his constituents in Vermont, he also joined the 100 to 0 vote in the Senate to give unalloyed moral and political support to the state of Israel during its most recent bombing campaign against Gaza.

    Bernie Sanders is the darling of AIPAC and the right-wing Likud government of Israel..."

    (Source: The Myth of Bernie Sanders -

    What is plainly obvious is that Bernie Sanders loves to rail against Corporate America and Wall Street but he himself being super rich has nothing to show for it. And on this platform Sanders does nothing to build the base of any independent party of anti-corporate, anti-usury nor anti-Zionist resistance.

    And do you seriously believe Sanders or Rand or any other candidate for the corporation of the UNITED STATES for that matter would downsize the USA Department of Defense? Do we hear about any specifics in cutting this spending and dark money?

    In July of 2014, a senate resolution was passed to basically strengthen the corporations support for the Israeli government.

    Let’s turn this around for a moment: Had the Israeli public been subjected to a massive military crackdown including 369 military incursions into Israel and 110 bombing attacks on Israel during which 11 Israelis had been killed, 78 wounded, and 700 arrested, and then had six Israeli soldiers been killed in a single air and ground military operation, would the Senate have omitted mention of all such facts and voted by unanimous consent that responding Israeli forces were “unprovoked?” Would the Senate have voted that the one attacking Israel was defending itself and that Israeli forces were the ones engaging in “belligerent actions?”

    Why did the Senate get this so wrong? Why did Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy allow their names to be used for pro-war propaganda so at variance with the facts?

    In conclusion, it is evident that Sanders is pro-Israel. His voting record is not as good as people think when it comes to war, and he never speaks out about U.S. funding terror, nor the 9/11 false flag atrocity or anything like that.

    If your not talking about the U.S. funding proxies then chances are your not honest or totally duped. He can just hide behind the guise of terrorism or be duped into more greater israel/imperialistic warmongering.

    Bernie Sanders supported NATO's bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. Sanders sold NATO's intervention in Libya as a humanitarian effort to stop the imminent slaughter of civilians in Benghazi. His foreign policy and military policy remain in line with corporate capitalism militarism and imperialism. Sanders signed a blank check for Israel and supported appropriations in Iraq and Afghanistan. So why do so-called progressives continue to support him?

    ...climate change is directly related to the growth of terrorism..."

    —Bernie Sanders

    ^ ^ ^ That's the PsyOp!

    ...that Climate Change is directly related to terrorism. It is as if Sanders is trying to encompass the blowback theory PsyOp with another PsyOp. Sanders is campaigning hard when it comes to this poorly termed climate change. While the planet is clearly out of harmony, and deforestation rampant, the internationalist climate change agenda vision is not the answer.

    Sanders goes right along with this PsyOp. The agenda would encompass climate permit policies and agenda 21/30 plans.

    Part 3

    And what about Sanders economic outlook? He is very pro-Keynesian, advocating big government and big government spending.

    This plays right into the hands of big oligarchical communist government where people become so dependent on the state. It’s like the state is the centralized engine of society and society can not function without it. Top down power to the max. One could even see the move to a cashless society behind him too. Do we really want more federal government? Could they collapse the economy with him as president to role out a new form of distorted socialism? Or would Trump be the fall guy?

    Sanders does not talk about the Federal Reserve, CIA, or any of these rogue entities which as really at the root of the problem. I do not see how anyone is going to solve anything without talking and tackling these issues. Sanders does none of these things.

    Obama was a wolf in sheeps clothing, lest we fall for another, like many did with Trump. Appearing as one of us, rallying the people only to turn the other way. If Obama, a pupil of Saul Alinsky could turn around and do everything he said he would not, why would Sanders not do the same? It is a true and tried campaign, will the people fall for it again?

    If they plan for Trump to win, then the media could always be purposely rolling out Sanders very slowly so as to appear he is not part of the establishment.

    We have to understand the powers that be evolve their plans. I think all real truths know too, that in the end we will save ourselves. No one can do it for us. Especially not a president of a corporation who refuses to acknowledge the 9/11 false flag atrocity event, which was part and parcel of instilling deliberate fear and trauma in the American mind so as to pass unconstitutional legislation, impose preemptive warfare and initiate the 'Global War on Terror' fraud that is still being waged today.

    Bernie Sanders says $3 billion/year in "aid" to Israel

    "isn't a heck of a lot of money..."

    Bernie Sanders was on a kibbutz in Israel the same year Kennedy was assassinated by Mossad and the CIA.

    Bernie completely ignores the fact that Uncle Sam provides Israel with billions in "aid" and loan guarantees.

    In 2016, Bernie said he was the only candidate with;

    “personal ties to Israel...”

    ...having spent time there on a kibbutz when he was younger.

    Naturally, he supported a “two-state solution,” and praised Israel’s “commitment to civil rights and the rule of law.”

    Certainly the Israeli press is fond of Bernie and Trump. Either way, those billions will continue to flow in.

    On gun control, Sanders is staunchly against the 2nd amendment and would outright ban rifles including the ar-15; an always reliable and most widely used rifle for home defense, whereas Trump, although making it appear that he is pro-gun has done more for the gun control movement and security niche market than Obama. As Trump once stated:

    First, you take the guns away, and then go through due process.

    So, Sanders does not sound like he cares too much about the 2nd amendment, but is that not the case with most Zionists?

    Sanders would be invited by the CFR to “articulate” his positions on foreign policy issues.

    -Rejoin JCPOA

    -Two-state solution

    -KSA part of the solution

    -UN sustainable development

    -Threaten Russia w/ sanctions

    -Stay politically engaged in Afghanistan

    Like Max Blumenthal, Benjamin Norton, Michael Tracey and the other leftist Zionist gatekeepers, including the likes of Noam Chomsky, all who whitewash Israel's involvement in 9/11, propagandizing the official government sanctioned narrative, also promote the falsity of the Free Syrian Army state department propaganda.

    Sander's writes:

    Nearly 1 million refugees—nearly half of them children—are under threat as Syrian troops advance on Idlib.

    Sanders is either naive or deliberately toeing the state department and Likudnik line in maintaining the same old regime change lies as experienced in Iraq and then Libya.

    The threat most pressing is the presence of known ultra-violent Wahhabist militants, who refused an amnesty from the Syrian government and chose instead to accept the buses provided to go to Idlib. Many of them remain active. Some of them even bombed said busses with women and children on board, in a case of what CNN and Fox News called, laughably, a "hiccup."

    Many are also Wahhabi jihadists connected to US proxy countries such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the UAE and Qatar. Ignoring them is not an option, which is what all the leftist gatekeepers seem to be swell at doing. Toeing these state department talking points, maintaining the 'Blowback' perception management narrative all whilst ignoring the publicly available documents proving Da'esh and the the Salafist principality in the region are exactly what the western powers desire illustrates a profound lack of geopolitical knowledge or a reluctance to rock the boat -- a reluctance, a people surely do not want in a leader.

    And what about imperialism? Is Sanders truly anti-war? He surely presents himself as such but has voted in favor of almost every single U.S. military intervention in the last two decades. So, much for being anti-war!

    Sanders exclaims, as a politician, that he did his best to stop American foreign policy wars.

    An article in on Sanders war record reads:

    Vermont was one of the largest recipients of Defense Department weapons contracts, such s the General Electric Plant in Burlington, which produced gatling guns for death squads. When peace activists planned to block the gate to the GE factory on June 20, 1983, Sanders refused to support them and had them arrested.

    According to an article by the Vermont Vanguard Press, Sanders:

    “viewed his key constituencies as the unions and the poor. Bread and butter’ economics framed his analysis, pushing long-term issues such as peace conversion to the margins of society.” Even during his “radical period”, Sanders was only opposed to militarism unless it affected the jobs of American workers.

    Sanders’ long-standing support for the F-35 fighter jet, which at 1.5 trillion dollars is the most expensive program in military weapons history.

    He'd rather have that industry come to Vermont to create jobs. That, right there, is the reality he so chooses, and illustrates his obvious reluctance to rock the boat. He is in this way maintaining the status quo and can be seen, in this light, far from progressive.

    Sanders’ lobbying has paid off since he managed to persuade Lockheed Martin to place a research center in Burlington and get 19 F-35s stationed at the city airport.

    In the 90's during the reign of the Clinton and Bush Sr. administrations, Sander's foreign policy views paralleled the neoconservative doctrine rather than the George H. W. Bush Sr. doctrine. The latter was opposed in many ways to the neoconservative doctrine of intervening in Iraq, partly due to Bush being an oil man, in which many oil companies were in good standing with Iraq at that time. It too, should be noted that there was a Mossad hit on Bush for withholding aid and weapons to Israel. In fact, Bush was one of the first presidents to advocate for the 'one state solution,' that the Likudniks, neoconservatives, Zionists and labor leftist Zionists like Sanders opposed. That in and of itself could be seen as a very progressive stance from such a conservative figure.

    Therefore, although Sanders was against the First Gulf War in 1991, he voted for the Iraq Liberation Act and another resolution linked below:

    ...that supported American measures to overthrow Saddam Hussein, all in accordance to the neoconservative doctrine.

    Jeffrey St. Clair noted for Counterpunch:

    These measures gave congressional backing for the CIA’s covert plan to overthrow the Hussein regime in Baghdad...

    [which the (neo-Trotskyite) Zionist neoconservatives desired]

    Continued: well as the tightening of an economic sanctions regime that may have killed as many as 500,000 Iraqi children. The resolution also gave the green light to Operation Desert Fox, a four-day long bombing campaign striking 100 targets throughout Iraq. The operation featured more than 300 bombing sorties and 350 ground-launched Tomahawk cruise missiles, several targeting Saddam Hussein himself.

    In voting in favor of these sanctions and interventions, Sanders is a direct accomplice to the deaths they caused.

    • In 1996, he voted in favor of the Iran and Libya Sanctions Act.

    "...imposes sanctions on persons exporting certain goods or technology that would enhance Iran’s ability to explore for, extract, refine, or transport by pipeline petroleum resources, and for other purposes.”

    • In 2001, he voted to extend the Iran and Libya Sanctions Act.

    • In 1998, he voted in favor of extraditing black revolutionary Assata Shakur to the United States in order to face “justice.”

    • Voting in favor of American bombing in Kosovo in 1999.

    Part 4

    When antiwar activists occupied Sanders’ office in 1999 due to his support for the war, he had them arrested. Sanders’ backing for air strikes in Kosovo led one of his advisers, Jeremy Brecher to resign in disgust, writing:

    “Is there a moral limit to the military violence you are willing to participate in or support? Where does that limit lie? And when that limit has been reached, what action will you take?”

    According to the

    In fact, there is no limit to the amount of violence that Bernie Sanders is willing to support.

    Three days after the September 11 attacks [an Israeli and 5th column neoconservative false flag], Bernie Sanders showed that even “democratic socialists” could rally behind the flag.

    • He voted in favor of H.R. Res. 64, Authorization for Use of Military Force that provided a blank check to neoconservative lackey President George W. Bush. [...] Less than a month later, the United States launched military actions against Afghanistan...

      [Afghanistan was not on most of the neoconservatives radar, William Kristol in a Harvard conference exclaimed, "who gives a crap about Afghanistan," illustrating that the neoconservatives were after Iraq, Palestine, Iran and Syria, whilst the US military and the UNOCAL company were after Afghanistan in order to erect a pipeline which for years the Taliban disputed.

    Only one day after the 9/11 attacks, Fred and Don Kagan called in to give their recommendations of how America should respond. Throughout the conversation they seem completely disinterested in Afghanistan or Bin Laden. Don says "as long as we go after the actual perpetrators our job is going to be next to impossible" and that "Afghanistan is a distraction". Afghanistan is hurriedly brushed aside by both so they can shoehorn in their preferable target for a US military response : Palestine and Iraq.]

    ...[regarding Afghanistan intervention] which over the course of the last 18 years have led to thousands of deaths and devastated the country. The Global War on Terror marked the beginning of Sanders’ support for the war budget and appropriations to the military in 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007. and 2008.

    When the Bush Administration geared up for the Iraq War in 2003, Sanders did vote against authorizing the use of military force. This is something that Sanders and his supporters point out as reflecting his antiwar record.

    However, this is a clever bait and switch.

    Just as American troops put their boots on the ground in a war that would kill hundreds of thousands, Sanders voted in favor of a resolution expressing support for the military. While Sanders has verbally opposed the Iraq War as illegal and wrong, this amounts to nothing but hot air since he regularly votes for military funding. If the war is illegal and wrong, then so is voting to fund it.

    Clearly, this was a carefully coordinated political tactic, similar to what Tulsi Gabbard did with her 'Stop Arming Terrorists' bill. In the latter case, Gabbard could promote her anti-war stance by presenting legislation which she knew would never pass, whilst at the same time have various military contractors back her and overtly speak in favor of the neoconservatives at various Likudnik backed and pro-Israeli conferences. In Sanders case, his game theory is even more overt. Sanders will continue to use his nay vote against Iraqi intervention' as political leverage. Knowing that his die-hard followers will ignore his past and present record of militarism and war, even votes in favor of policies enacted on Iraq thereafter, thusly maintaining the war effort, Sanders can effectively lie by omission. A progressive in the Woodrow Wilson sense? Yes!

    And what about:



    Elizebeth Warren

    Ocasio-Cortez, by remaining silent on the very real U.S. military build-up and the machinations to topple Maduro, she is thusly complicit in America's exploitive foreign policy agendas. She too, has taken a neutral stance on Israel, possibly because she has marrano Jewish origins and has spoke openly to various pro-Israeli organizations.

    In an odd turn of events, Pamela Anderson tweeted in February of 2019:

    [Ocasio-Cortez] openly supports US intervention to Venezuela and supports US military and big corporations she claims she’s fighting against…

    Hmmmmm — Pamela Anderson


    A timely tweet, indeed, but hypocritical, considering the Pamela Anderson Foundation has given millions in aid to pro-Israeli causes, directly bolstering the Likudnik regime. Just another Kabuki theater conundrum. Thanks Pamela and remind Assange why Netanyahu and the Israeli government thanked him for his work or why Iran is listed in Wikileaks more than any other state. Might we be witnessing a massive limited hangout campaign? You be the judge.

    And what about Warren, the less progressive option on the left, who like Sanders, supported the corporatist Hilary Clinton.

    Well Warren just voted for a defense budget that is higher than the one that Donald Trump requested.

    This bill authorizes $700 billion in defense funds. This includes $640 billion for the Pentagon and an additional $60 billion for military operations in countries such as Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. This bill increased military spending by $80 billion, which far surpasses the increase requested by America First President Trump ($54 billion). There were 8 no votes (against 89 yes votes) and three abstentions, but Warren was not one of them. The defense policy bill (National Defense Authorization Act or NDAA) has passed 56 years in a row and inclides the repealment of the Smith-Mundt Modernization act of 1948, replacinf it with thr Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, thusly legally permitting domestic propaganda and psychological operations.

    The article on continues:

    Therefore, ratifying a bill that takes more taxes from workers and funnels it into foreign wars, leading to more deaths of innocent people, sponsors Israel’s war against the Palestinians ($705 million), and invests additional hundreds of millions in anti-Russian military build-up in Ukraine and the Baltic ($600 million).


    We touched on Sander's views on Israel in the preceding paragraphs of which we will now go into more detail. It is clear to anyone with eyes to see that Sanders is a liberal left-leaning Zionist, akin to the Labor Zionists who oppose the right-wing Likudnik Zionists on certain domestic and social issues. The securization of Israel and the whitewashing of its crimes abroad -- both sides-- one overt, the other covert sit among themselves downing Tabbouleh maintaining the status quo both in Israel and in America.

    Sanders, unlike Bush Sr. opposed a one state solution. Ultimately, Sanders views are in support of the Apartheid regime.

    According to, Sanders:

    ...despite offering some criticism of Israel, he was more concerned with Palestinian responsibility for the ensuing violence than anything else. He also emphasized his support for Israel: “You need to protect the state of Israel. That’s clearly and absolutely right.”

    According to Doug Enaa Greene, an independent historian:

    [Sanders] was not just in terms of words, but by votes to provide billions in military hardware and aid to the Apartheid state in 1997, 1999, 2004. When Hamas won the Palestinian elections in 2006, Sanders voted in favor of imposing sanctions in order to remove them from power. He has also voted for resolutions in favor of Israeli military actions against Lebanon in 2006 and Gaza in 2014. At a town hall meeting on Gaza, Sanders was heckled for defending the Israeli actions, telling the audience to “shut up.”

    It is true that Sanders has expressed opposition to the government of Benjamin Netanyahu and even refused to attend a speech by the Israeli Prime Minister in 2015, this remains empty symbolism. He has said that the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement to end the occupation of the Palestinian territories is motivated in part by anti-Semitism.

    He supported Obama’s military actions against Libya, sanctions against Russia, providing a billion dollars in aid to the far right Ukrainian government in 2014, and supported arming the Saudi Arabian monarchy to fight ISIS.

    Nothing in Sanders’ runs for President in 2016 or 2020 indicates any change in his support for American imperialism. He has refused to end the drone program.

    He is an exceptional political activist and person, with a very clear, consistent message since the early 1960s about the importance of challenging the 1% on the behalf of the needs of the 99%. He been one of the few politicians to consistently work for the 99% and to address the problems of class warfare. Sadly, he's not appropriately strategic and has thus limited his political capabilities. He's not networked appropriately, and his activisim has extended to unworkable options, like cancelling student debt, approaches to 'socialist' reforms, remaining an independent, anti-NRA approaches, banking reform, opposition to the military industrial complex, to the Patriot Act, and reducing trade with China. All of these would be wonderful to address, but he should know how to work in increments toward those goals, rather than assume that there is sufficient political support for them. Nor has he had the necessary network of support. Politicians have to work with much greater complexity, rather than assume that a socialist revolution is possible on the Hill. He is however one of the best political activists for the 99%.

      I'm not name-calling. He is a shill. There is no other word for it. Don't try to censor useful words.

      But feel free to chastise me on my hostile tone as potentially downward against an advocate of industrial systemic evil. I'll feel free to show you and abundance of examples of much worse social activity, including from you, and I'll point you to the Democrat and Big Pharma corporatocracy /s/VaccineInjuries that he supports.

      /u/socks is complicit to MASS MURDER and supporting authoritarian eugenics via shilling misinformation.

      May socks endure a slow painful death from vaccines - or better, wake the fuck up to the evils of his currently beloved authoritarianism.

      Also, go fuck yourself for defending him. You seriously need to wise up too.

      I never cared much for socks, but now you are making me like him.

      I should be grateful that you've been a dick?
      Are you now calling me names?
      What is your meaning?

      I think the name calling was pretty facetious and shouldn't be taken too seriously, though I I can understand your upset since socks is obviously shill material.

      [–]JasonCarswellVoluntaryist 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

      True thanks for the support. Shame this is even an issue.

      If he didn't lick his lizard lips when he is speaking he might get elected. My wife can't stand him because he licks his lizard lips all the time.

      In 2016 I would have voted for him over Trump, but it was Killary instead so I voted third party. Now he's a sellout and a grifter, no way I would vote for him.

      He's a coward who appears to be pro working class, but has done nothing for the working class in all the years he's been in power.

      I voted for him in both elections, even though he didn't appear on the ballot after the primary. I had to write him in.

      If the DNC hadn't screwed him over with the superdelegates, he'd be in his second term now.

      Communist scum. The only good communists is a dead communist - but I'd be happy enough if we pinnoched' them all to Epstein Island where they could make their magic utopia on their own and leave us normals alone.

      He comes across as being a less bumbling version of Jeremy Corbyn. The two of them seem happiest when proclaiming the people's revolution, all the while living it up in luxury with their wealthy friends. Corbyn's main flaw is he seems incapable of doing anything, even mundane daily activities, without somehow bumbling into a photo opportunity with a terrorist or somebody who wants to erase the Jews from the face of the planet.

      He spins a nice thread of equal opportunity and all that with his words. But he's a Jew, which means he lies EVEN MORE than other politicians. He's got to be the most purely communist politician in the USA.
