I’d meant to pass comment on this last year but let it get lost in the sauce. It’s an illustration of leftist logic at its finest. Dave Matthews in a Rolling Stone interview:
[Bernie Sanders is] a guy who is talking about something real and that isn’t insulted by being called a liberal. Someone could call me a liberal, and I’d say, “Thank you.” Someone could call me a socialist, and I’d say, “I wish I was a socialist.” I should get a shirt that says, “Tax me! Tax the fuck out of me!”
We have the front man for the most successful touring band in history, his net worth is estimated at $300 million, claiming to support the idea of wealth equality through mandatory confiscation and redistribution while incapable of voluntarily bringing himself to redistribute a sizable chunk of his own massive fortune, something the state would graciously allow him to do if he so chose.
That is, he favors the state taking for the purposes of redistribution from those who don’t have one-tenth of one percent of what he has even though he refuses to voluntarily offer a share of his pile of gold, a pile that is 1,000 times larger than theirs. He’d be a good person if only someone would just point a gun at him already!
