Sanders Is Headlining the DNC Unity Tour…But Still Doesn’t Want to Be Called a Democrat

bernie-sandersSo the Dems are parading around a guy, Bernie Sanders, that calles himself a “democrat socialist” before running for Prez, signed up to run as a Dem, immediately resigned after the race…

“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?

My fight, from a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.
