About Me

I am a disgruntled former DU member. Most people here are fine, but the site is ruined by zealous Hillary supporters. DU took my money and put my account on everlasting review. Cowards. Dishonest cowards.

Attention Bernie Sanders fans

I can't post this on the Bernie Sanders forum, since I was blocked by one of the hosts. I pointed out that Sanders' old admission to being a democratic socialist would be the end of him. Once the media get ahold of the "socialist" thing, they will murder him. I guess this bit of reality is so upsetting to Sanders supporters they had a complete meltdown. They called me a troll, etc. and chased me away. As a Democratic socialist myself (Gasp! No! He can't be!) I know how this works. When people find out you're a socialist, whether democratic or not, they really freak out. I understand why people like Bernie Sanders. I like him. I would vote for him. I just don't think it's healthy to get so invested in a candidate that I ignore the way the popular media work, and how they will glom onto the "socialist" thing and use it to make Sanders look extreme. It would be great if they would not do that, but we live in the United States, and we know the media can't look at democratic socialism without going nuts. If I am wrong, by some miracle, I will be the first to jump up and shout ""Hooray!" Anyway, here's the post, so you can judge for yourself.

That's pretty much the end of Bernie. Once the "liberal media" get done screaming, "Socialist! Socialist! Socialist at the door!" people will think of him the same way they thought of Jerry Brown after Mike Royko called him "Governor Moonbeam."
