Skip to comments.For millennials, Sanders is a grandpa who gets them

Bernie Sanders is no one's idea of a camera-ready presidential candidate. He's a "democratic socialist" running against an icon of the Democratic establishment. (And as satisfying as anti-establishment sentiment may feel for some right now -- the establishment is still pretty damn important.)
His white hair is kind of wild, he's awkward, doesn't smile much, he hunches over and waves his arms when he speaks. He campaigns in rolled-up shirtsleeves and has pens in his shirt pocket.
When it comes down to it, his radical policy positions and general cranky-grandpa vibe don't exactly scream "President of the United States."

Lenin too was a “democratic socialist”. The original name of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union was the Social Democratic Labor Party of Russia.
PS. “Grandpa” is a family-oriented term. Leftists are about abolition of the family.
Those millenials who have been smoking too much weed and taking other drugs? Sanders is a perfectly preserved ‘60s hippie who spouts absolute nonsense. One would think a man of his advanced years would have looked up from his Commie agenda playbook once in a while, but nope. He is a dyed in the wool Commie libtard, one who is horrifically naive. I wouldn’t put it past him to recommend we offer flowers to ISIS to appease them. He’s in THAT zone. Probably would pick Moonbeam Brown from Californy as a running mate. They would be a matched pair of libtard imbeciles such as the world has hardly seen. If you think other nations are laughing at us now, it staggers the imagination to think what they would do if (G-d forbid) these clowns were elected. I think his appeal is simply as a Democrap alternative to Hildabeast.
The most effective way to brainwash a liberal is to give him an enema.
Jerry Moonbeam is no slackazz Sanders wannabe.
It always amazes me, as to how little you folks actually want to oust ANY LIBERAL FROM ANY PIOUS POSITION.
Grandpa Bernie doesn’t say, “Get off of my lawn.” Instead, it’s “Let’s take over all the rich people’s lawns.”
No, he just ruined his state’s economy, schools, safety, etc. No he’s no “slackazz” at fouling up stuff. He’s a libtard, with the swathe of destruction connected to that designation.
If your food is of the excremental variety, by all means, dig in and enjoy! Otherwise, save your not-very-cleverly modified pejorative remarks for yourself.
EQ you’ve got it. The Democrat Party has been reduced to running two reds for their presidential candidate (Martin O’Malley is a Marxist-lite). Could make that 2-1/2 Marxist candidates.
Both Hillary and Bernie came out of the Communist Party USA orbit (she through their law firm of Burstein, Treuhaft and Gary), along with Cuban asset Prof. Johnnetta Cole (now with the Smithsonian Institution, while Bernie went from the old anti-communist YPSL’s to the CPUSA-dominated Packinghouse Workers (Pat Gorman, Abe Feinglass, etc) (A lot of Marxists helped the Packingworkers Union including CPUSA member and Soviet asset David Simon Canter, the mentor of David Axelrod).
Sanders is a communist/Marxist nut, period. I’ve met a lot of communists of all stripes from here to Vietnam and he would have been kicked out of most Stalinist parties as a wackjob. They wouldn’t tolerate a loose cannon like him. Maybe Lyndon LaRouche would have taken him in, or Bob Avakian of the Revolutionary Communist Party, etc. but no self-respecting red would want him around to gum up the works with his stupid Marxist spoutings.
Hillary is much smarter, much more greedy, and better trained at being a hardcore leftist but not showing it too much..
However, since the Millenials “Childrens’ Crusade has some steam, it just goes to show you how indoctrinated in Marxist doctrine our young people, esp. those in college, have been. The communists/Marxists’ greatest successes in subverting America have been in the field of academia, esp. the colleges and universitie.
This, plus the dumbing down of American education means that they can be indoctrinated at even younger ages than before and damned few liberals care about it.
That is the “American Tragedy”.
Thanks. You’re the best.
Take good care, EinNYC.
Wish Bernie would have been politically active back in 1954, and would have been rounded up like the rest of the Reds.
Millennials won’t be too happy in 20-30 years when they find out the Bern’s IRA and 401K confiscation plan cost them their inheritance,
Too bad that she's Category 5 stupid
IF ...by some insane chance , Sanders prevails and gets ‘elected’, I hope our entire U.S. Armed Forces rises up and overthrows the civilian political class in this country .
They cannot possible serve a President Commie Sanders
nor a President Lying Bitch Clinton .
No way! Rise up boys ! We will stand with you
and screw the ‘millennials’
if they are not in uniform they are mostly a bunch of dopes
Poor deluded fools looking forward to the "stability" of communism. Guess aborting their own isn't good enough for leftist killing each other. Now they want to usher in the death and destruction a shooting war would bring should the communist actually win. Be careful what you wish for young radicals. Some of us oldsters are ready to deny you any safe space. We remember the difference between Liberty and Tyranny. Patrick Henry said it best. I wonder if they still teach what he said in today's indoctrination seminars?
It was worth the trip to see the pics but she went to Berkeley and that says it all.
Amazing. In the real world, angry, nonsense spouting geezers like Bernie are derided, put down or simply ignored by millennials, “hipsters”, etc., but the apparatchik media will do/print/say anything to get a democrat elected.
It will be very instructive to see these liars attempt to spin away the 40+ year trail of lunacy that Bernie has publicly spouted.
We will endure many more of these puff pieces in coming weeks/months for whichever candidate has the “D” after their name.
Murdered by Hitler, 1933-1945: 20,946,000
Murdered by Stalin, 1917-1987: 61,911,000
Murdered by Mao: 114, 702,000
Murdered by Socialism in the 20th century - 197,259,000
If you add in those murdered by the Japanese during WWII, Pol Pot and N.Vnam, and Cuba the total goes over 200M.
Prospective murdered by US socialism 25,000,000 - from a Weather Underground (Bill Ayers’ group) interview decades ago. A total which would be far larger today and is what the Millennials will be voting for along with their ‘necessary’ free stuff.
One should also inform the Millennials who slept through history class - if they even had one - that the first to the wall are always the early supporters, the ones who betrayed their government, the ones who cannot be trusted because of their betrayal - in this case them.
