Bernie’s Self-Immolation

It’s more than a bit funny that the mad socialist, Bernie Sanders is, himself, feeling the “Bern.” Then, Socialism is great fuel and hypocrisy and equally good accelerant. Bernie’s self-immolation was almost guaranteed. 😉

What’s happened is that Bernie’s campaign staff – which unionized – is in extended arguments with their “management” over the pay and benefits that his campaign’s field staffers get. The staffers have complained that their salaries of $36,000 annually ends up being less than $15.00 / hour when the numbers of hours a week they work on average are factored in.

A letter that the campaign’s union planned to send to Sanders’ campaign manager Faiz Shakir which read in part that workers “cannot be expected to build the largest grassroots organizing program in American history while making poverty wages. Given our campaign’s commitment to fighting for a living wage of at least $15.00 an hour, we believe it is only fair that the campaign would carry through this commitment to its own field team.”

The letter states that field organizers are working at least 60 hours a week, which lowers the average per hour pay to $13 an hour.

“Many field staffers are barely managing to survive financially, which is severely impacting our team’s productivity and morale. Some field organizers have already left the campaign as a result,” the letter said.

Even a proposal from the campaign director, Faiz Shakir that recommended raising their salaries to $42,000 per annum was rejected, largely because the proposal didn’t also include Bernie paying for 100% of the staffers’ healthcare costs.

Yep. Ol’ Bernie really should have known that, if he’s going to run on forcing higher wages for low-end personnel and free healthcare for all, he was going to have to fut the bill for them same for the partisans actually working for him.

Oh! And just to add more fuel to his own pyre, Bernie’s response to this rebellion as of July 19, 2019 was to reduce staff hours to ensure everyone makes $15 an hour.

Bernie’s Folsom Pledge

Bernie's Folsom Pledge - To give convicted and imprisoned felons the vote
Bernie’s Folsom Pledge

Sometimes you’ve got to wonder about Bernie Sanders – wonder to the point of thinking long and hard about revising one’s opinion of Hillary’s DNC stealing the 2016 Democrat Nomination from him. This is one of those times since Bernie made it clear that he wants the Felon Vote.

The question was stark: Would you support enfranchising incarcerated people like the Boston Marathon bomber or convicted rapists?

The answer Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont gave was starker: Yes.

“I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy,” Mr. Sanders said during a town hall-style event on CNN this past week. “Yes, even for terrible people.”

It was a response that seemed designed to appeal to criminal justice advocates, to say nothing of people of color, who are disproportionately incarcerated.

It also immediately touched off the latest policy debate of the Democratic primary: Among the candidates asked about the issue recently were Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Senator Kamala Harris of California and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., all of whom signaled, with varying levels of intensity, that they did not agree with Mr. Sanders.

— Bernie Sanders

Yes, that is Bernie’s Folsom Pledge – to grant convicted murderers, rapists, pedophiles, terrorists, and any all other felons the “right” to vote while they’re imprisoned for their various and sundry heinous crimes.

Then, Bernie has always had a problem with the Black Vote and this is the sort of implicit pandering that might be needed to get him some of it.

What Could Go Wrong?

The Prison Block Voting Bloc - Vote Sanders or else!
The Prison Block Voting Bloc

Let’s forget for the moment that allowing the worst and most vile individuals who have been rightfully cast out of our society to have a say in our society is deeply offensive to America’s normative majority. Let’s also forget for the moment anything and everything about federal elections. While important, the impact of the convict vote on these things is secondary to other, more critical concerns.

No. Focus instead more firmly upon where and when these convicts – overwhelmingly (73%) Democrat – could have a real impact and cause real harm. Focus on the State, County, and Local elections.

Imagine, if you will, the great harm that incarcerated felons could do in those elections, especially ones for: Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, District Attorneys, Prosecutors, and/or Judges. Remember, these are elections with a much smaller electorate and, hence, the population of a prison there could and likely would greatly impact the outcome(s).

Bernie Needs To Stay In His Lane

Voting, be it for offices within each state or for elected federal offices is a matter that is wholly within the purview of each state. The federal government can only step in to prevent certain broad abuses, e.g., denying the “right” to vote based on race (15th Amendment), sex (19th Amendment), or advanced age (26th Amendment). As such, it is grossly inappropriate for any Presidential candidate to weigh in on this matter and to use it as a plank in his campaign’s platform.

The Bern Hypocrisy

The Bern Hypocrisy

The rampant hypocrisy of Democrats is well established. Yet, even with that bar having been set, Bernie Sanders manages to go that stumbling step further into out-of-touch surrealism.

I wrote a best-selling book. If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.

— Bernie Sanders

Just pause a moment or two and reflect upon the cluelessness, self-unawareness, “privilege,” and rank hypocrisy of that statement by America’s best-known and best-positioned Socialist.

Please! Cue Up That Screed

Please! Cue Up That Screed
Please! Cue Up That Screed, Jackass

Oh yes! I do so hope that the Jackasses of the Left, especially the Feminazi cunts, have the chutzpah to actually cue up and launch into one of their screeds on “White Privilege” and “Toxic Masculinity” when the three front-runners for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination are: Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Beto O’Rourke – all well-to-do White men and all with a history of “inappropriate” behavior towards women.

But we all know that they will cue up that screed and rant it to world and uncaring heavens, don’t we? After all, “it’s not the same thing” in their minds any more than Clinton, Franken, or Ellison are the same thing – again, in their minds.

Bernie’s Tools For 2020

Bernie’s Tools For 2020

Yes, it seems that old Bernie hasn’t learned his lesson and is considering running for POTUS again in 2020. 🙄 But hey! Bernie’s an avowed Socialist and, given how many times it’s been tried and how many times it’s failed at a great and bloody cost, it’s not too surprising that Bernie hasn’t learned his lesson.

Yeah, that’s the thing; when you’re a socialist and every problem looks like the “Aristocracy” and the Bourgeoisie, the only tools in your kit are going to be a hammer and sickle.
