As the establishment Democrat Party finally works up the nerve to dump “Bernie” [score]Bernard Sanders[/score] and finally gloat about Hillary’s candidacy, it made me realize something very important about today’s Democrat Party. They are Bernie and Bernie is them.
Today’s Democrat Party is a National Socialist Party. They advocate for trade protectionism, a strong national defense, and government control of important industries (like healthcare, banking, and energy). They’ve also begun to press for greater government regulation of the individual by arguing that our personal liberty has much more stringent boundaries than we realize.
While Bernie might call himself a Democratic Socialist, this term is misleading, because it doesn’t actually mean anything. Explain the difference between a democratic socialist and a socialist, please. There is none. Every socialist nation holds “democratic” style elections and referendums. No, Bernie, the true term for your political orientation is National Socialist.
But that’s not my point today. Today my point is that it’s not just Bernie. The entire slate of leaders from the Democrat Party are also National Socialists, and one of them just endorsed the other for President.
On Thursday, President Obama finally got off the bench, boxed Bernie Sanders out, and called Hillary Clinton’s number. On Thursday, Obama finally endorsed Hillary Clinton.
This should be the final blow for the Sanders campaign. He had promised to continue fighting all the way to the Democrat National Convention, but now that passions have cooled he’ll likely concede the race and endorse Clinton… it kind of sounds like this process is already in the works.
“Needless to say, I am going to do everything in my power, and I will work as hard as I can to make sure Donald Trump does not become president of the United States,” the Vermont senator said.
Sanders said he phoned Clinton, who clinched the nomination this week, after Tuesday’s primaries to congratulate her on her “strong campaign” and said they would speak soon about “how we can work together to defeat Donald Trump and to create a government that represents all of us and not just the 1 percent.”
