Taking Bernie and the Radical Left Seriously
As you are undoubtedly aware, Uncle Bernie’s minions are threatening to burn down cities if their favorite commie doesn’t get the Democratic nomination. A Project Veritas undercover video features a man by the name of Kyle Jurek, described by Sanders’ Iowa field director as one of the campaign’s “top tier organizers,” saying, “F…ing cities burn” (if Donald Trump is reelected) and “I mean, we don’t have a lot of time left. We have to save f…ing human civilization.”
He went on to say that “If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination, or it goes to the second round at the DNC convention, f…ing Milwaukee will burn. It’ll start in Milwaukee, and then, when the police push back on that, other cities will just f–ing (loud noise).”
Threats and violence from the Radical Left were totally predictable, of course. A year ago, in Part II of my article evaluating the Democratic presidential candidates, this is what I said about Sanders:
I doubt [Sanders] can win the Democratic nomination — and certainly not the presidency — but this time around I expect him and his rabid supporters to be out for blood now that they realize Horrible Hillary and the Dirty Dems screwed them out of the 2016 nomination.
Now, suddenly, a lot of people are starting to take Bernie Sanders — an entertaining amalgam of Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Krusty the Clown — seriously. Bearing an eerie resemblance to Horrible Hillary mentor Saul Alinsky, Bernie is a crotchety old goat who sincerely believes that a majority of Americans would welcome socialism/communism into their lives.
Make no mistake about it, when Bernie rages on about redistribution-of-wealth schemes, he’s not just some idealistic old fool. On the contrary, he gives hope to millions of Americans who actually do dream of a Bolshevik-style uprising in in the United States. Trust me, these people would love nothing more than to see blood running in the streets. It may be hard for normal people to comprehend, but envy loves blood even more than it loves free stuff.
To envy-crazed Democrats like Kyle Jurek, Bernie represents much more than just a humorous sideshow in the fight for the Democratic nomination. As the first Democratic candidate to openly embrace socialism, he is nothing short of a heroic cult figure. Best everyone start taking Bernie seriously, because he is serious — every bit as serious as all the other lefties who have preached revolution of the masses over the past 150 years.
Radical Left revolutionaries hate the fact that most people will not cast their ballots for an agenda that calls for them to surrender their money and freedom, which is why they consider violent revolution to be a viable option. They realize that people don’t give up their freedom easily, so they believe it’s their moral duty to save people from their own bad judgment.
It’s also why, at a time when a majority of Americans have let it be known that they want to move away from government control, government regulations, and government theft, immature, low-information students, along with their low-information, even more immature college professors, are singing the praises of free … Free … FREE! Not free as you and I understand the word, but free in the sense of having other people pay for the things you want.
No question about it, free will always be music to the ears of a significant percentage of the population, and freeloaders could care less who pays the bills. These are the folks who are feelin’ the Bern and are euphoric about Sanders’ chances of winning the Democratic nomination and ascending to the White House.
Not only is the envy-based anger of the left every bit as strong as the MAGA anger that brought Donald Trump to White House, the Radical Left has one big advantage: To them, Marxism is a religious crusade that demands a willingness to resort to any means necessary to bring about change that is to their liking. So, even though zombie Democrats are looking quite crazed and moronic right now, it would be wise not to underestimate them.
On the other side of the political coin, when a conservative gets up every morning, he thinks about how to get ahead in the world by providing value in the marketplace. He may not consciously think about it that way, but it’s instinctive for normal people to strive to better their existence. The last thing on their minds is trying to figure out ways to gain control of other people’s lives.
Leftists believe time is on their side because of their undying commitment to foist their Machiavellian agenda on mentally lethargic Americans. Not just the most extreme leftists, but even so-called moderate liberals. In fact, moderate liberal is an oxymoron, because liberalism, as the word is now commonly used, is an extreme ideology that calls for control over other people’s lives.
That said, there’s no doubt in my mind that Trump will win in a landslide in November, and I expect Republicans to take back the House and increase their numbers in the Senate as well. That, however, should not bring about a collective sigh of relief, because the long term is not so certain.
Why? Because those on the Radical Left are masters at playing the long game. Which is why you can count on Democrats to keep pressing forward with their Radical Left agenda even after the election is over, regardless of the outcome. Remember, unlike unprincipled, weak-kneed Republicans, Democrats never — ever — let up.
Thus, the most important question of our time is: Which side will prevail over the long term? Will the MAGA people fall into the comfort zone and go the way of the Tea Partiers, or will they stay strong and ramp up their efforts to push back against Washington? The one thing you can count on is that the Radical Left will not fall into the comfort zone and will try to — you guessed it — overturn the 2020 election.
