Why Are Bernie Bros So Violent?

Dana Mathewson

Why, indeed? And why are they so enamored of the gulags?

I'm going to break my long-established rule and include the entire Power Line article here -- hope we don't run into trouble for doing so.

I am starting to get the feeling that James Hodgkinson wasn’t a one-off. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has been conducting an undercover investigation of the Bernie Sanders campaign. We wrote here and here about a Project Veritas investigator’s conversations with one of Sanders’ "top tier organizers” in Iowa. The Bernie Bro expressed admiration for the Soviet Gulags, said billionaires should be sentenced to breaking rocks, and suggested that anyone who opposes Sanders’ revolutionary policies would be shot.

It turns out there are more pro-violence Bernie Bros where Hodgkinson and the first organizer came from. O’Keefe has now released another video, this time of a South Carolina field organizer. It’s weird: I had no idea that there are at least two admirers of Russian Gulags in the U.S.:

Re-education camps for Republicans! Bring back the guillotine! Let’s have a revolution!

How many pro-violence Bernie Bros are out there? I don’t know, but I have a feeling we are going to hear from a few more.

Coincidentally, Hillary Clinton’s attack on Sanders is in the news today, as Steve noted earlier:

It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women. And I really hope people are paying attention to that because it should be worrisome that he has permitted this culture — not only permitted, [he] seems to really be very much supporting it.

Hillary, of course, is concerned about attacks on liberal women, not Republicans, police officers or the City of Milwaukee (which will burn, one of the Sanders organizers says, if Bernie doesn’t win the nomination). Still, she raises a serious question: does the unhinged, anti-democratic, pro-violence craziness that we see among the Bernie Bros start at the top? Maybe, for once, Hillary has a point.

Good Heavens! Did you ever think you'd be agreeing with The Hag? I admit she has a point indeed.

Go here https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/01/why-are-bernie-bros-so-violent.php for the entire article in order to extract the Tweet and the video included with it.

I'd like to mention that these folks who want to send their "enemies" (read: political opponents) to prison, or the gulag, or whatever, never stop to think what would happen if the jackboot were on the other foot. That is, if the other side were in power (as it is now) and were as merciless as they want to be. I always say "Be careful what you wish for." And you might want to mention that if you are in a political discussion with someone on "the other side" and he starts to get "worked up."

Remember the eight Obama years, how uncompromising the Right was, how many liberals were slaughtered or went to prison on trumped-up (no pun intended) charges, how many homes were torched because their occupants were merely suspected of being Obama supporters, how many black people were lynched, etc.? Yeah, me neither.

1 As Lenin said, power comes from the barrel of a gun.  Liberals understand nothing but power, and they can't pursuade because the facts are against them. So violence is all there is left.
