Sanders Is Headlining the DNC Unity Tour…But Still Doesn’t Want to Be Called a Democrat
“No, I’m an Independent,” Sanders said when asked by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes whether he now identifies as a Democrat.
…and now calls himself an “independent”. Thus, we have two levels of lying going on:
- First, he’s more popular, as a Socialist, than any of the actual Democrats in the Democrat Party
- Second, what does that say about the perception of the Democrat Party as a whole that it has to have someone front them that isn’t one of them? How sad is that – for the Party of Diversity to have a really old white guy that gets cheers and the Chair of the Party gets boos at rallys?
- Third, what does it ALSO say about the Democrat Party ideologically that a Socialist is now the face of their Party?
Can we now unequivocally say that there are no differences between Socialists and Democrats?
