When will you millennials learn? Socialists LIE and STEAL from YOU. Socialism benefits only the few who control the system. For just a teensy little minute, get your heads out of Twatter, put your Facebook self-promotion on pause, and consider these facts about your hero, the hectoring curmudgeon from Vermont:
The rich are evil and steal from you, sez Bernie. So why is Jane Sanders under FBI investigation for bank fraud? Seems Senator Bernie may well have pressured a bank to make a bad loan to Burlington College during Jane (Missus Sanders) tenure as president there. Is it stealing for a powerful man to twist a banker’s arm to get someone else’s money for a crap investment?
Now let’s consider your precious Bernie Sanders’ real estate portfolio. Bernie is the man who campaigned on the comment “How many yachts and homes do you billionaires need?” Ol’ Bern, the man of the people, the commoner’s friend, owns three large and prestigious homes, and has a net worth of tens of millions of dollars:
Bernie Sanders slams billionaires, gets reminded he owns 3 houses
After deleting the initial tweet and replacing it with a new one, swapping “can” with “can’t”, Sanders was mercilessly mocked for questioning how yachts and cars billionaires need when he and his wife bought their third house — a $600,000 beachfront residence — in August.
And then there’s the question of Bernie’s new ride. At left, below, the top-line Audi he’s purported to be driving. At right, below, the image Bernie wants you millennial suckers to buy.
But my very favorite proof that Bernie Sanders is the prototypical socialist is the attitude he holds about charity:
Bernie Sanders: ‘I don’t believe in charities’
Professor: Democrat ‘has no real respect or regard for civil society’

A 1981 New York Times item quotes Democratic Party presidential candidate Bernie Sanders as saying he doesn’t “believe in charities,” an outlook that one expert says is common in socialism and would destroy civil society.
In September 1981, the Times reported on comments then-Burlington Mayor Sanders made at a charity event:
“For the kickoff of the 40th annual Chittenden County United Way fund-raising drive in Burlington, Vt., the sponsors considered themselves fortunate to have as guests Mayor Bernard Sanders of Burlington and Gov. Richard Snelling of Vermont,” reported the Times.
“But the charity workers heard the sort of things they wanted to hear from only one of their guests.
“‘I don’t believe in charities,” said Mayor Sanders, bringing a shocked silence to a packed hotel banquet room. The mayor, who is a socialist, went on to question the ”fundamental concepts on which charities are based” and contended that government, rather than charity organizations, should take over responsibility for social programs,’” the article stated.
Joe Loconte fiercely disagrees. Loconte teaches Western civilization and American foreign policy at The King’s College in New York City. He has also held positions with the Heritage Foundation and the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington. From 2001-2003, he was an informal adviser to the George W. Bush administration’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.
“It’s no surprise that Bernie Sanders then, and I think even now, really has no real respect or regard for civil society,” Loconte told WND and Radio America. “This is the problem with socialism. It sees such an overwhelming, intrusive role for the state at all levels, there’s no room left for the voluntary society.”
He said the history of America shows civil society as a indispensable part of what makes America great.
“Those associations, those charities, those faith-based organizations that have always been the lifeblood of American democracy have always contributed to this truth as we describe the United States,” he said. “It’s exceptionalism. Near the heart of American exceptionalism is this vibrant, independent civil society.”
A Clinton wannabe, that’s Bernie, honing the arts of deceit, fraud, financial arm-twisting, and greed …. prepping to take over from the Witch of Chappaqua if he gets another chance to top the Democrat ticket. Lord preserve us.
