I watched ABC this morning for an hour. George Stephanopoulos and numerous guests commented on the Chicago protesters disrupting the Donald Trump rally there. He even had Bernie Sanders who proclaimed it was purely a racist thing.
What George did NOT do the entire show was show some of the less than flattering images from that rally. Namely these people waving a communist flag ON CNN. That IS CNN’s broadcast. Anyone watching that, and we’ll just have to assume George Stephanopoulos did, knows that these people weren’t there simply to voice their opposition to Trump’s campaign.
If we are to believe they were sincere, then we have to accept that they were there supporting communism. Which, is a form of socialism. Which, is what Bernie supports openly.
Now, to be subtle, a lot of people DO have issues with communism and socialism. I do. It’s never worked, led to the deaths of millions of people, and people supporting it have never had the first logical argument as to why we would actually be better off with it.
We can assume the people waving those flags, dressing as Nazis, and stomping on US flags, were there for no other reason to disrupt the rally and stifle Trump’s right to free speech.
Which, of course, is a staple of communism, which is a form of socialism, which is what Bernie supports.
My belief? This was nothing more than moveon.org going to bed with Black Lives Matter ( and anarchists ) to protest anything Republican. Bernie obviously got a stiffy thinking it was for him, but it wasn’t. He needs to look longer in the mirror. He’s not black no matter how hard he tries. They will never “support” Bernie. They’ll just hate his enemy. A union formed from hate never ends well. Ever.
