The future of America

From The Kansas City Star:

TOPEKA — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, delivering the keynote speech Kansas Democratic Party’s annual convention Saturday night in Topeka, told a crowd of progressives not to despair in the face of President Donald Trump’s election.

Sanders, who won the 2016 Kansas caucus by more than 35 percentage points, touted the support he received from young voters during his presidential campaign and said that he ended the campaign much more optimistic about the direction of the country than when he started it.

“Our vision, our progressive vision, is not only the future of the Democratic Party, it is the future of America,” Sanders said.

Interesting delusion. Sanders is 75 years old, he lost the nomination to the person who suffered a decisive loss in the presidential election, which was to the political party that controls a large majority of the state legislators and governorships, and he thinks his vision of the way things should be, will be the future of our country.

You have to wonder… is it Alzheimer’s or is it a hallucinogenic drug?

  1. here’s a suggestion to explain sander’s view.– stupidity.
    all those progressives will be changed people after 25 years of income taxes and failed social programs, and “poverty stricken” people who cannot seem to work their way out of their plight.
    just sayin’.

  2. p.s. and, the “poverty stricken” of the future will be the sons & daughters of today’s poverty stricken, except, they will be more numerous. bets?

    • At the rate my taxes, escrow, insurance etc. keep climbing, I may be one of the poverty stricken in the future, too.

  3. Sanders didn’t lose the nomination. It was taken from him. And he gave it up for a $600,000 lake house and his life. I probably would have done the same thing in the same situation. These supposed facts do not detract from the probability of delusions and alzheimers.

  4. Crazy Uncle Bernie was a democrat long enough to run for POTUS and reverted back to his independent status. Why would they let him speak at a democratic party function is beyond me.

  5. Hey, give Sanders a chance. This country isn’t likely to become Venezuela without somebody like him in charge, after all!

  6. I believe his “progressive vision” includes unstated acts including the disarming of the citizens via the totalitarian state attempted monopoly of force. Now be a “good citizen” and “relinquish” your arms in solidarity with and for the “good of all”… well maybe not “all”…

  7. Here’s a grand unifying version of how all this works:

    Progressives hate blacks, especially blacks with power… unless that black person is saying the right progressive things. Because they’re fundamentally racist. Funny thing… they’re also anti-white, anti-asian, anti-latino… unless progressive.

    Progressives hate blacks, especially blacks with power… unless that black person is saying the right progressive things. Because they’re fundamentally racist. Funny thing… they’re also anti-white, anti-asian, anti-latino… unless progressive.

    Progressives hate gays, and all other sexual minorities… unless that LGBTQ person is saying the right progressive things. Because they’re fundamentally homophobic. You can see this on display any time a gay person strays off the progressive reservation. There may be those out there with a “loath the sin, love the sinner” attitude, but for progressives, non-compliant gays are apostates that must be stoned to death.

    Progressives hate men, except for the ones which toe the progressive line, then they’re OK, or merely second class who should shut up when their moral superiors are talking.

    Progressives hate the old people, unless they’re progressive. But they conveniently vote for government benefits, so they’re tractable.

    Progressives hate corporations and businesses, especially profitable ones… unless that corporation is saying the right progressive things and donating to the right progressive causes. Because progressives are greedy and jealous, and it sickens them to to core to see someone with something they don’t have unless they’re getting a cut.

    Just wait: you’ll find out that Progressives are anti-union, unless that union’s leadership is progressive. Screw the members, they don’t count. If Trump makes a deal with a union that the leadership can’t refuse because Trump broadcasts the details of the deal to the members, watch that union get savaged by progressives.

    Progressives are anti-government, unless they’ve captured the bureaucracy of that agency, then it is holy.

    Progressives love murder, theft, destruction, starvation

    Progressives are anti-science, in that they fundamentally don’t care what the objective facts are, but only care if they can fit into a narrative that advances their power. They cloak their pronouncements in scientific trappings because science as a process has good public favor, and they want that without doing the work. They are science-cosplay.

    So your fundamental, unified theory of progressivism:
    If pursuant to progressive power, it is good.
    If not actively pursuant to progressive power, it must be captured or destroyed.
    Burn the heretics.
    Objective reality is not convenient.

    And that is why an white old man with a brand new lake-side house is their messiah. Whatever else he is, he’s progressive. Murder, lies, theft, destruction, forced starvation, slavery… all OK, if it is done by a good progressive.

    Over-generalization? The why is the bad guy also “literally Hitler”, not “literally Stalin” who killed many times more and with just as much prejudice? Stalin was progressive.
