Bernie Sanders Supporters Have Sad Emoji

Just look at the picture. There were grown men crying over Bernie. They were clearly upset that they won’t be getting free birth control. So too were there grown women crying over Bernie, no doubt upset that they’ll have to continue living in the real world and not in the magical world powered by unicorn farts and jackalope dreams.

Sanders’ speech was classic socialism. Businesses are bad, successful people are bad, and only bigger government can save us — but not just bigger government, the right…errr…left kind of government.

It is amazing that in the twenty-first century the Democrats would resurrect the failed ideas of the twentieth century and try to run on them again. Bernie Sanders really wants free everything, but has no explanation for how he will get the money. More troubling, his crying supporters seem to have no idea that free stuff is really just stuff paid for by someone else. Who exactly will do that? Mexico?

The Bernie Sanders phenomenon is the Donald Trump cult of the Democrats. The Democratic Party at least had the presence of mind to snuff it out, unlike the Republicans and their cult of Trump. It is ridiculous to see people crying over a communist who celebrated the Soviet Union as it was exterminating its citizens wholesale.

The Democratic Party of today has reverted to the Democrats of the late sixties and it is a damning indictment of our present culture that they’re more successful now than then.
