Bernie Calls For Socialist “Revolution” In America

5855

Following President Trump’s vehement rejection of the socialist uprising in America during his State of The Union address, various members of the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination circus have escalated one another’s efforts to out-socialism each other – from Wealth Taxes to Green New Deals, with ‘free shit’ for all in between.

However, everyone’s favorite three-home-earning, private-jet-flying socialist, Bernie Sanders has ratcheted his campaign’s rhetoric to ’11’ this morning with an op-ed directly calling for a socialist revolution in America – and based on the majority of Americans’ views, he may just get one!

It’s Time To Complete The Revolution We Started

authored by Bernie Sanders via The Guardian,

One week ago, when we launched our campaign for president, I asked people from across the country to sign up to be part of an unprecedented grassroots campaign. The response from the American people has been historic.

In six days, more than one million people have answered the call. Americans from every single Congressional district in the country have signed up to help lead a movement that is not only about defeating Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in modern American history, but about creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice.

This task will not be easy. Today, we have more income and wealth inequality than at any time since the 1920s, and the three wealthiest Americans own more wealth than the bottom half of our country.

Despite relatively low unemployment, millions of people work multiple jobs because they earn starvation wages34 millionAmericans have no health insurance, and we pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs.

Shamefully, we treat our most vulnerable people with disdain. We have the highest rate of childhood poverty of almost any major nation and a dysfunctional and unaffordable childcare system. While many Republicans want to cut Social Security, about half of older Americans have no retirement savings.

And, in the midst of all of that, we have a president who is a pathological liar, a fraud, racist, sexist, xenophobe, religious bigot and someone who is moving this country in an authoritarian direction.

To be successful in creating a government and economy that works for the many, we will have to take on powerful special interests that dominate our economic and political life – Wall Street, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry, the military-industrial-complex, the private-prison industry and multinational corporations. These special interests have extraordinary power, and they will spend enormous sums of money to maintain the status quo and their wealth.

The only way we will defeat Donald Trump and the special interests that support him is with a grassroots movement – the likes of which has never been seen in American history. We must stand together – women and men, black, white, Latino, Native American, Asian American, gay and straight, young and old, native born and immigrant – to address the challenges we face as a nation.

At a time when our infrastructure is crumbling and we have an affordable housing crisis, we can create millions of good paying jobs rebuilding our country. Together, we can raise the minimum wage to a living wage of $15 an hour, provide pay equity for women and guarantee all workers paid family and medical leave.

We cannot afford to wait any longer to address the existential threat of climate change. We must transform our energy system away from fossil fuels toward energy efficiency and sustainable energy, creating millions of jobs in the process.

While we spend almost twice as much per capita on health care as any nation, our health outcomes are worse and life expectancy is in decline. It is time for us to join every other major country and guarantee health care to all people as a right, not a privilege, through a Medicare-for-all program.

Unbelievably, Americans are saddled with $1.5tn in student loan debt and many young people can’t afford the cost of college. We must lower the egregious level of student debt and make public colleges and universities tuition-free.

The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world and African Americans are incarcerated at more than five times the rate of white people. Our job is to end the destructive “war on drugs,” eliminate private prisons and cash bail and bring about major police department reform.

Instead of demonizing undocumented immigrants as our current president has done, we should fight for comprehensive immigration reform, a path toward citizenship, immediate legal status for the young people eligible for the DACA program and a humane policy for those at the border who seek asylum.

At a time when women’s rights are under attack at the local, state and federal level, we must defend a woman’s right to control her own body.

To confront the epidemic of gun violence, we need to take on the NRA, expand background checks, end the gun show loophole and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons.

And finally, we must end Trump’s support for authoritarian leaders. We need a foreign policy which focuses on democracy, human rights, world peace, global wealth inequality, climate change and massive corporate tax evasion.

In 2016, our campaign began the political revolution. The ideas we fought for, which then were considered “radical” or “extreme,” are now supported by a majority of Americans. Now, it is time to defeat Donald Trump, complete that revolution and implement the vision we fought for.

Be afraid America.

  1. Somebody please tell me why Bernie Sanders shouldn’t be hung by the neck until dead for treason. He just said, “Let’s overthrow the US government”.

    • Exactly, and others on the left have as well. If a conservative said half the things they have, the individual would be in prison for many years, if not executed. I wonder if he realizes the shit storm he will be starting, because America will never go down without a fight, and I doubt that pampered panzy could survive it. Of course Obama is all the proof we need of how they feel about traitors, just like back in the 1930’s through the 60’s, when the Soviet communists had agents all through the democrat party. Now socialists, and radical Islamists are all over it.

      • Be prepared, be aware, now your surroundings, know where the issues reside. Know that they are deluded into believing they are the majority, that they are the enlightened. When the time comes have the resolve to be the patriot that you were meant to be! We are the patriots of this generation! And they are the traitors of our time! Molon Labe!

    • He’s an avowed Socialist trying to overthrow America. That’s treason. Our Founders are weeping. If it wasn’t for the Communist media this wouldn’t be happening. It is they who have brought us to this point. Not 1 liberal station has condemned this Socialist thought. Then we can assume they are all Communist/Socialist and need to be taken out. Rid the patient of the cancer and the patient recovers.

    • Just take away all his wealth and let him
      live in a socialistic country for a few years
      with all his dumb grass roots people.

      Then upon his return if he enjoy socialism
      that much, please stay.

      Look to Venezuela- there is no food and
      that country is socialism at its best.

      Good luck Bernie – you have become
      rich on the tails of people that worked.

      • Its both, and if you want to include “sanctuary cities” and “sanctuary states,” that is insurrection (total defiance of federal authority). The penalty for treason is death.

    • Actually, wouldn’t calling for a “revolution” in these United States of America be considered a SEDITIOUS ACT? Yup! That too, deserves the “hang by the neck until dead” rallying cry!!!!

  2. Bernie is tap dancing on a landmine ! He needs to be arrested for even saying this ! If I were you ; I wouldn’t push my luck ! I am really surprised at how stupid the people of Vermont are for even electing him !

    • what can we do as Americans to get this idiot out of politics, he should be locked up, he sounds he wants to overthrow the govt. he is a thread to our nation, lock him up,make him pay for what he is trying to do.

  3. Bernie is a IDIOT ,this just a NOTHER REASON why I LEFT the Democratic party ! He should be put in JAIL ! ,ON IF the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES had some BALLS ! !! ! ™®🚬🔫

    • yeap, or actually use the death penalty. Is it not cruel an unusual punishment that innocent people have to pay to keep scum alive for year after year when we the people did no crime?

  4. What you say about our President is what YOU ARE ALL ABOUT AND HE IS BRINGING ALL YOUR EVIL DOINGS TO SURFACE, that is why you are fighting him so hard. YOU ALL HAVE BAD BAD THINGS TO HIDE ,and President TRUMP is about to reveal them .

  5. Is this dimwit calling civil unrest? What kind of revolution does this dimwit call for? He may just see a revolution, a revolution to run these socialist along with their families out of this country. Just look what has become of countries like N.Korea, Cuba and Venezuela. Wake Up America

    • It doesn’t matter what anyone says… APPRARENTLY, the ENTIRE CONGRESS is voting in that direction!
      They are prepared to STOP the NATIONAL EMERGENCY, CALLED FOR BY PRESIDENT TRUMP..TODAY!
      CONGRESS IS PREPARED TO BEGIN THE DESTRUCTION OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT IN TOMORROW’S VOTE -BUT HEY, IT’S CALLED REASONABLE GUN CONTROL! SO.., THAT MAKES IT OKIE DOKIE!
      AND, IT SEEMS, NO ONE HAS A PROBLEM WITH SANCTUARY -EVEN THE REPUBLICANS, ARE VERY APPARENTLY OKAY, WITH SANCTUARY STATES & CITIES…!
      WORSE, THE PEOPLE ARE BEHIND THEM -THE HOUSE IS NOW DEMOCRATICALLY CONTROLLED! IT WAS VERY DEFINITELY “THE PEOPLE” THAT VOTED THEM IN!

  6. Quit sending me your garbage emails. I wouldnt vote for this stupid fucker if you paid me! Why would i want somebody to ruin the country I live in? You dumb bastards!

  7. Commie Bernie can crap in one hand and wish in the other and see which one weighs the most! Go to a commie country Bernie, give up your new car, your expensive house and your flights to do some good for people insteead of yourself for a change! Go away commie, you are not an American!

  8. old bernie, needs to be BANNED from politics, he can say all he wants but, it be all hot air. He is the 2018/2019 poster person for TERM LIMITS

  9. So Bernie wants a revolution ? Bernie did you purchase stock in body bag manufacturing ? You’ll make a killing of you did, no pun intended !

  10. So in the true interest of socialism. Is Bernie going to take his campaign funds and divide it evenly among his challengers also running for the 2020 Presidency? To make it fair I think he should. He’s collected too much based on his philosophy, how much is too much? How much is not enough? Why should he have collected more campaign funds than Cory Booker? Share it Bernie! Divide it up evenly Bernie!….You friggin phony!

    • Better yet, he can sell all that he owns, and give to the homeless, widows,orphans, st Jude hospital , military veterans ,to lsarel’s poor, and homeless, and a number of other charities

  11. Her Bernie, you want a revolution, you scum bag?
    Take it to the bank, you are going to get it.
    There are millions of men in this country that gave up significant portions of their life to defend the USA against socialism and communism.
    Ypu will be meeting some of them face to face.

    • he should be hanged , he is a threat to our nation, wake up America, see what this idiot is trying to do to you , he needs to be removed from our country in any way we can.

  12. A socialist communist sicko, he is. Sadly, strong appeal to the increasing low wage workers in this country growing in increasing proportions as the population increases overall. Most don’t have the education or individual responsibility to better themselves so they are prey to the democraps.

  13. I’m all for a “socialist revolution in this country.” We need to have a revolution against socialism and get the hell rid of morons like Bernie Sanders.

  14. Socialism has failed everywhere. Look at the latest disaster in South America. Bernie likes capitalism. Look how many houses he has gotten for running for president last time from contributors to his campaign. One of the communist strategies is to appeal to young people and use them as useful idiots. Thanks to liberal schools for banning critical thinking, brainwashing has prevailed. Nothing like going into debt on student loans to get jobs you could have gotten previously with just a high school education. The interest rates for student loans have increased due to the dems.

  15. Someone tell that -D umbass that only God, the Sun and barack ‘the messiah” obama can change or control or do ANYTHING with ANY planet’s climate. Grow up and learn science, dolt. Better yet shut up and go back to cuba

  16. Understand that when Bernie talks about Trump movingvtoward an authoritarian government what he’s really saying is that he rejects our constitutional Republic. Bernie’s model of government is that he and his ilk have all the authority and we are not but subjects and governmental slaves. He won’t tell you that. Instead he will make his ideas for the future sound utopian. It is….. For him. He will scrap our laws, our freedoms, and our constitution. It already starting. The idea of innocent until proven guilty is gone. Now police can take property, have no probable cause, violate your right to be safe from illegal searches and seizures, conduct warrantless hone invasions all in the name of a higher reason. To be safe in one’s property and effects has been thrown out all because snowflakes are afraid of possibles.and what its. Well what if a frog had wings then it wouldn’t bump his assertions when he jumped. Don’t try the be with me cause I’m probably going to be rubbed out for defending myself under the constitution and I’ll be vilified because of it. As I was taught, better to die fighting for what is right and just than to die on my knees because I became a subject. The government forgets that they serve at our pleasure not because they’re entitled because they’re better than me. Consent of the governed and under the constitution we can rescind that consent at anytime contrary to what the government and courts would have you believe.

  17. Calling for a “revolution” is calling for an overthrow of a duly-elected government by “We the People” is HIGH TREASON. PERIOD…. ALL these CORRUPT COMMUNISTS should be rounded up, arrested, tried, convicted, and Publicly HANGED. This is no longer “free speech” this is INCITING RIOTS, and has to be halted IMMEDIATELY before the BLOODSHED begins (and if not “squashed” it WILL HAPPEN)

    • In the round up be sure to add, Hitlery, Pelousi, Warren, Feinstein, Ocasio, the other Muslim Bi-ch, Schumer, NYC Mayor, Chicago Mayor, the list goes on. This newly elected? congress is full of anti American agenda. Beware all. GET RID OF AS MANY DEMONCRAPS AS ONE CAN, THEY AS A GROUP ARE THE TRUE DANGER TO SAVING OUR COUNTRY FROM THE SECOND CIVIL WAR.

      • put them on a boat like the Titanic, only no life boats at all and head it for a ISIS country with American flags all over it , have loud speakers shouting , Kill Allah

    • Gary,
      Don’t forget all the BRAINWASHED, INDOCTRINATED, “millennials” that he (and “teachers” as well as “professors”) have “convinced” them that you are “special” and this country “owes you a living” and a “free ride” for NOTHING is possible.
      How SAD (but awakening) it will be (for them) when REALITY hits home.

  18. So he is calling for war. GOOD BRING YOUR LITTLE LILLIES ON…WE ARE ARMED TO THE TEETH WITH WEAPONS WE BOUGHT WITH OUR OWN MONEY TO STOP TYRANTS LIKE BERNIE ….DO IT CALL FOR A REVOLUTION I DEAR YOU, YOU LITTLE IDIOT.. MAKE OUR COUNTRY BETTER….WE ARE WAITING…

  19. 2020 Candidates Running for…wait for it…
    “A More Perfect Union”…FOR THE PEOPLE?

    ELIZABETH WARREN

    The $93 TRILLION Socialist Gamble with Communism…

  20. Can we please toss this socialist fother-mucker over the rail of a tall ship?! See if his ideas still float! His call to action is Sedition and perhaps even merit him a charge of High Treason!

  21. I thought Congress outlawed the Communist party CPUSA in the 50’s.. Is Bernie hoping for an overthrow of our Constitutional government? Of course he will have to be the dictator in charge and will have to have 5 or 6 more Dachas aka mansions bicoastal so that he and his criminal wife can enjoy all of the accolades of dictatorship and untold riches. Of course he will nationalize all corporations and industries so he and his corrupt cronies can run them into the ground like Obama did with Solyndra. The Russians, Chinese, Cubans and venezuians will surely embrace him and assist in the looting of our industries and technology and the world will reach perfection and AOC will be named 2nd in command.. BERNIES WET DREAM.

  22. So Comrade Bernie wants open borders, citizenship for all illegals, free healthcare for all, free tuition for all, confiscation of guns, eliminate fossil fuels, lower house costs causing massive devaluation of real estate values, $15 minimum wage bankrupting millions of small businesses and causing massive layoffs, ban oil gas and coal causing the destruction of the auto sector causing untold millions of jobs to be eliminated, eliminate the airline industry…..WHAT A IDIOTIC LYING COMMIE SCUMBALL THAT IS HELLBENT ON DESTROYING AMERICA!!! THIS IS THE FUTURE IF YOU VOTE DEMONCRAP!!! MAGA TRUMP/PENCE 2020

  23. Sanders treasonous remakes to overthrow our Government and encouraging a civil war is beyond belief. What is more depressing is that people actually believe and will vote for him. He should loose his citizenship and sent to a Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Country. His 3 homes and his wealth we can give to the poor. After all under Socialism everyone is the same so he won’t need them. How can anyone in America believe such lies and stupidity. Socialism Communism Fascism has never worked. The best way to achieve a better life is having freedom to choose your life’s course by faith in God and yourself.

  24. As an American Citizen I call for the arrest and trial for treason against Bernie Sanders. He is a communist and supports all communist nations against the United States of America. He belongs at Gitmo with the rest of the traitors to America.

  25. Well, the Democrats, oh wait……the Socialists, no, that’s not right either………the COMMUNIST Fascists are about to TRY to take over the USA from within. It finally was made public by the head Commie, Sanders! WAKE UP PEOPLE!! YOU HAVE BEEN BRAIN-WASHED BY THE LIBERAL, RADICAL, DEMOCRAT SOCIALISTS FOR FAR TO LONG!!!

  26. Hey Bernie, you’ve got a lot money. Sell those expensive houses that you own and give the money to a charity. Then you could stand on busy street corner wearing sackcloth and ashes and a tin cup collecting money.

  27. TRY him for Treason . We have been fighting commie’s for over 70 year’
    s. Mabey the people in vermont do not have any Veteran’s left. ? Letting this as$hole in congress is a disgrace.

  28. Socialism is being ushered in by the liberal democrats and not surprisingly the dumb ass young people thinks its a great idea………….they have never worked in the first place so getting every thing “free” and being given other peoples money is an attractive idea to them….only problem is those “other” people will either fight to keep their wealth or they will also quit working , so the
    free barrel will run dry pretty damn soon….Democrats are determined to take this country down and they are getting a very good start without any resistance for the Repubs and consertative people………….third world country , here we come !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Socialism CAN only work with an UNLIMITED supply of Other People’s Money. Is yours unlimited?

      The demonCRAPs believe they can take ALL of our Money. Have you ever heard the statement “Live free or DIE”? It is my life motto!!!

  29. Did you actually read the article?. Sanders is advocating for change in our economy through a democratic process. You may not agree, but you don’t need to panic, and nobody needs to be “locked and loaded” to deal with different ideas about policy.

  30. Bisquick bernie preaches sedition and treason against two-thirds of WE THE PEOPLE! It’s time for the rest of US to teach him what is “right and good” about America. If he really wants to give away “free stuff”, then let him sell ALL his houses and use that money to appease his socialist following; then he and his spouse, “lame-brain-jane” can buy themselves a little “shack in the woods” and spend their last days there. Give them that “choice” – -do that, or find themselves in PERMANENT EXILE.

  31. Bring BACK ( because it is virtuallybanned) Judeo-Christian and Constitutional teaching into schools(because Constitutional thinking is repressed) and the liberal-progressive-socialist idiotic nonsense won’t have a chance.

  32. I have heard that the liberal democrats were looking for a revolution, well there is enough retired military to support their wish. How many do they need 5 million or maybe 10 through 30 million? We are the people who have sworn to protect the Constitution from foreign and domestic people who are wanting to overthrow the United States of America Government. We are waiting!!

  34. Just how in the hell did bernise become wealthy? He has never worked in his life. He was penniless at the age of 40. His wife (who in the hell would have married him with a face only a mother had to love) left him because of their meager living conditions. I thenk there has been some under the table shenanigans going on there!

    • That’s why he’s such a good Socialist. He plans on being on the top of the heap when the economy crashes and he knows how to do it. He’s become quite adept at doing what all good Socialist/Progressives do, live high on the hog while those they consider the unwashed masses go down in flames due to their misdirected ideological agenda. We may not be socialist yet, but we have enough of the socialist agenda running our country right now that it wouldn’t take much to push it over the edge. Like a bunch of young people voting that have no idea what good things this country is and has been all about. The liars are being believe and the rats are winning the rat race.

  35. Seems like all of the 50s communist paranoia which was summarily chastised then, has, over 50 years still leached into the American society. You can call it the life cycle of a capitalist society but with the help of global forces determined to undermine and dismantle this great country. Throw in a couple generations of “participation trophy” kids that didn’t learn that, at some point, they needed to accomplish something to make their way in supporting themselves in life all in the name of wanting to do good for our kids in making it better for them than we had it. How could that go wrong?

  36. Tell Bernie, as well as AOC, to go fuck each other, much like they’re wanting to do to this country!! All they want is ultimate control! Ayn Rand had it right when she described the difference between communism and socialism: Communism is control by Force, and Socialism as control by Vote! It’s merely the difference between Murder and Suicide!! Then you also have to consider they’re both DamnCrats!!!

  37. The thing Bernie is missing about all the “bad entities” he hopes to destroy, is that these situations were largely encouraged by Democrats. Look at the states and cities the Progressives control and they are hotbeds of crony capitalism. I don’t give the Republicans a pass on these things because they are apt to jump on the bandwagon when it comes there way, but comparing the states, cities, etc., that are run by Republicans versus Democrats, it’s not hard to see the Democrats are the most guilty of all that Bernie finds troubling. If he and others of his ilk get their way, we will become another Venezuela, Cuba, etc. Unfortunately too many Americans, even on the subsistence level, have better lives than people in many other countries, so they have become complacent and believe they are victims because the Democrats tell them they are. If they think they are victims now, they have no idea what’s coming down the road if their stupidity is rewarded.

  38. ” You Americans are so gullible ! We don’t have to invade you! we will destroy you from within without firing a shot! we will bury you by the millions! We spoon feed you Socialism until your Communists and don’t even know it! we assist your elected leaders in giving you small doses of Socialism until you suddenly awake to find you have Communism. The day will come when your grandchildren will live under Communism” This is a Quote from Nikita Khrushchev in 1960
