Bernie Sanders, commie. Or commie lover. Or commie sympathizer. Ok, this is from Trump, who is still explaining how he’s going to get the Mexican government to pay for a 2,000 mile wall. More on that later.
Of course, New York Republicans can be outdone by Texas Republicans any day of the week, even if they are competing in the area of stupidity. Rep Jason Villalba accused Bernie Sanders of being a Nazi, pretty nutsy given Sanders is Jewish.
Well Hitler’s party was the National Socialist Workers Party. Actually, the Nazi’s greatest enemy was the Democratic Socialist Party, which he destroyed by brute force. But who cares. This is just more dumb zingers – Sanders is a Commie by day, Nazi by night. I wish the election could be next week.
But Trumps zingers are just name calling, and are particularly embarrassing. Of course Jason’s are laughable. Laissez faire capitalism is a dead concept. Yes, government has been regulating industry since the early 1940’s. The child labor laws and health and safety regulations for workers were all considered government encroaching on the rights of private industry, or communism. The most contentious laws, the right of workers to unionize and go on strike, was held in the 1950’s as a communist plot.
Undemocratic socialism is what has been practiced in Cuba, Russia and Eastern Europe, with disastrous results. If anything Bernie has done, is to promote reforms in campaign finance- thus increasing the democratic process.
I guess since the Democrats had their attention grabbing debate and Trump really feels out of the limelight. There is a time to speak, and a time to sit down and shut up.
