America just can’t catch a break. After three long years of brutal oppression under Donald Trump’s Russia-backed Nazi Reich, it turns out the only Democratic candidate with a chance of unseating him in November and rescuing the world from the Putin-Nazis is a 78-year-old bloodthirsty Commie with a Khmer Rouge-like army of kill-crazy followers.

Yes, I’m afraid the rumors are true. Apparently, elements of Jeremy Corbyn’s recently-disbanded Nazi Death Cult have regrouped in the United States, formed an alliance with Bernie Sanders fanatics, and together this Mega-Commie Kill Swarm is roaming the Internet with complete impunity, sadistically mass-murdering Sanders critics and defenseless differently-abled persons with vulgar language and vicious poo-memes.

The corporate media are doing their best to alert Americans to the imminent threat. CNN broadcast a special report explaining how Sanders’ “army of supporters” are “bullying” and “frightening” his critics into silence. An “outspoken Elizabeth Warren supporter whose daughter with Downs syndrome is recovering from cancer” was verbally-abused to within an inch of her life. An “activist dying of ALS” was instructed to go “f___” himself. The Working Families Party was subjected to a series of inappropriate adjectives. The Party’s leader, an African American and a personal friend of Bernie Sanders, was taunted with a racist Tweet, which Sanders took to Twitter and condemned, but by that time it was much too late. His Commie Kill Swarm was beyond his control; they started tweeting memes comparing Elizabeth Warren to a snake and Pete Buttigieg to a rat, and otherwise terrorizing the American public.

Senior Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin spoke to several other “victims” of Sanders’ Commie Kill Swarm’s tweets who are recovering from their Internet traumas in undisclosed secure locations and so insisted on remaining anonymous. According to Griffin, these emotionally-traumatized victims are so emotionally traumatized by what they experienced on the Internet that they wouldn’t even let him describe the traumatic “circumstances” surrounding their “attacks.”

And the proof of Sanders’ Commie Kill Swarm’s atrocities isn’t just anecdotal. No, Griffin also spoke to Ben Decker, “CEO” of something called “Memetica” (which appears to be Ben’s Twitter account), whose “Facebook analysis” conclusively proves that Sanders has a lot of online supporters, more than all the other candidates, which creates “the potential for greater harm.” This type of online “bullying-at-scale,” according to Ben, is just … well, “crazy.”

Of course, CNN is not the only corporate media outlet on the case. In the days leading up to the Iowa caucuses (which Sanders would go on to attempt to steal from Buttigieg by winning thousands more votes), a spate of dire warnings were issued. According to The Washington Post, “Sanders supporters have weaponized Facebook” and are terrorizing people with “angry memes.” The New York Times reported that “Bernie Sanders and His Internet Army have forced progressives who refuse to back him into hiring private security details to protect them from “death threats” and off-color jokes. Daily Beast warned of “Toxic Bernie Bros.” NBC likened them to MAGA supporters, who everyone knows are Russia-loving Nazis. SNL writers went even further, painting Sanders as the darling of 4chan … and these are just a few examples.

But by far the most bombastic display of unbridled Sanders-Commie-Kill-Swarm-Panic was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who totally lost it after the last debate and started sputtering about “socialists” staging public mass-executions in Central Park. Matthews is apparently firmly convinced that Sanders, if he wins the election, plans to dress up like Fidel Castro, march Matthews and his cronies out onto the Great Lawn, and go full-bore Daenerys Targaryen on them. He sat there, trembling, on national television, eyes afire with paranoia, jabbering about the godless “Reds” like a scene from Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove that got cut because it was too over-the-top.

Seriously, though, I doubt he has much to worry about. Regardless of who wins the election this year, the supranational corporatocracy that essentially owns the U.S. government is not about to let Bernie Sanders implement the same basic social programs that most capitalist countries throughout world have provided to their people for decades. Jesus, just imagine the freedomless horror if Americans could go to university, and, you know, maybe raise a child or two, without spending the rest of their lives in debt! Think of the suffering that would inflict on the banks, and insurance companies, and military contractors, not to mention the pharmaceutical industry. God help America, should it go down that road! The next thing you know there’d be high-speed trains, subsidized art, and un-chlorinated chicken … there’s no telling where the nightmare would end.

Look, I don’t normally get invested in the quadrennial Simulation of Democracy, but I’m kind of pulling for Bernie this time. I don’t believe he has a chance, but if he somehow managed to outfox the Democrats and win the nomination this summer, it would be fun to watch as the corporate media and the rest of the neoliberal Resistance react to a Sanders vs. Trump election.

Not that either Sanders or Trump, the men themselves, are a threat to the empire (as we have witnessed over the course of the last three years). But we’re in the middle of a War on Populism, which the global corporatocracy needs to win if it is going to continue to relentlessly destabilize, privatize, and restructure everything, as it has been doing since the end of the Cold War. Sanders and Trump are just symbols, of course, lightning rods for “populist” anger … but they are symbols the empire needs to destroy in order to reestablish “normality.”

The neoliberal Resistance’s ham-fisted efforts to prevent a Bernie Sanders nomination are desperate attempts to avoid a scenario where they are forced to ensure Donald Trump’s reelection, which, make no mistake, they will do if they have to. (Jonathan Chait has already whipped up some boilerplate to be used in that effort.) They did it to Corbyn, and they will do it to Sanders, but it is likely to get extremely awkward, pretending to reluctantly support him (because the alternative will be a man they’ve spent the last three years accusing of being a Russian spy and literally Hitler) while simultaneously painting him as a genocidal commie terrorist whose supporters are a bunch of white supremacist, billionaire-butchering neo-Maoists.

Thus the “Sanders Swarm” hysteria, and the Iowa caucuses “technical difficulties,” and whatever other propaganda and dirty tricks the Resistance has planned to prevent a Sanders nomination, so they can lose to Trump with a non-populist candidate and play “Resistance” for another four years.

So, unless you relish the thought of that, or the thought of watching a humiliated Bernie obsequiously shuffle around the country campaigning for Buttigieg, like he did for Clinton, please do what you can to get him nominated, so we can enjoy a Pol Pot vs. Hitler election.

Do it for purely entertainment purposes. It is mostly just a show, after all.#

    I’m enjoying the tensions between Bernie who owns the radicals, Pete who appear an Obama style CIA production, and Biden, the last of the establishment crowd capable of talking to money folks.

    The recent “mainstream” turn to covering Pete as an Obama-style “consensus and unity” messiah seems to be giving up the game. At least Biden and the Clintons were somewhat independent agents. The future of the DNC is looking like its going to be war as the gerontocrats die. Radical Reds verus entirely owned puppets of the bureaucracy.

  8. Sanders is no “commie”, much less a “social democrat”. What real “leftist” would want open borders – the gift to corporate America in cheap labour? Universal health care systems break down under mass immigration, because the cost of running it for the increased population is not matched by increased revenue to support it. That has been the case everywhere. As for university, half of the degrees offered are little more than indoctrination programmes, which do nothing for “critical thinking”

    I can’t believe Yang has any support. I’m poor as fuck but managed to put enough years into the workforce in the US that I qualify for the bare minimum of Social Security assuming I live long enough. The amount I’ll get? About $1200 a month. Plus Medicare and a few other old-guy perks. Yang wants to sweep that ALL away and hand me $1000 cash. Forget seeing the doctor, I may actually lose wherever I’m living because the rent may no longer be 1/3 or less my monthly income, too. I guess it’s enough to drink myself to death on and that’s about it.

    STAY HOME. Voting for Bernie will get you more of the above. Voting for anyone else — likewise.

    Force them to show the world a nation of empty voting booths. Make them pass laws to force us to vote under threat of fine, like Australia.

    It would indeed! Some get Rush Limbaugh to start up Operation Chaos 2020.

  19. As I remarked on a Ted Ralls thread the other day, I’m increasingly convinced that the DNC now actually wants Trump to win and is therefore actively assisting him by sabotaging their own chances of winning the election.

    The question is why? I can only speculate here, but I lean towards the theory that Trump has finally cut a deal with the establishment, and that there will be a war against Iran in term 2. I know he’s resisted this idea so far, just doing the bare minimum to appease them–Soleimani, etc. But I really think he’s finally thrown in the towel now, agreeing to attack Iran if they agree to drop their attempts at unseating him.

    Call me a conspiracy theorist, but that’s what it’s starting to look like to me.

    I don’t think it even requires a backroom deal for the Dems to throw 2020 to Trump. The socially-liberal millionaires that make up the party’s base these days don’t have anything to lose by giving Trump another term, while Congressmen who get $$$ from various lobbies have a lot to lose with a Bernie/AOC takeover of their party.

    WHAT FLAVOR OF JEWISH DECEPTION do you want? Leftist? You got the National Jewish Democratic Council. Conservative? You got the Republican Jewish Coalition.

    How about controlled-opposition from the right?

    You got Breitbart News: Born In The USA Conceived In Israel.

    From the left? You got Mother Jones and TruthDig, both owned by Jews, with thin and scanty Anti-Israel Light, followed by extra large Homosexual Heavy.

    The entire media is Jew-owned, with ABC under Disney’s major shareholders, Robert Iger and Alan Braverman; CBS under Viacom’s Sumner Redstone (born Murray Rothstein); and NBC under Comcast’s Brian Roberts.

    How about draping right-wing polity with a Jewish yarmulke? Then enter Ben Shapiro spouting a conservative rant on Fox News who gets the goys all unglued.

    “Not all Jews are leftist wackos,” says Trump’s goyisha base when listening to Shapiro, “this Jewish guy’s one of us.”

    But when the right-slinging Yid woos the Zio-christian boobs with, “I just LOVE Israel,” he gets the goys to chime right in with, “Oh, how we love Jews, ahh…Jesus.”

    Oh, you say, the media hates Trump so how can you tell me that Jews support Trump?

    Well, you simply can’t fathom Jewish deception. Big Jewish money is behind Trump vis-a-vis Sheldon Adelson, Charles Kushner, and Paul Singer.

    But to a man Jews despise Trump’s “deplorable” base—that is, white men and women—who crave racial congruity in America.

    Nothing scares the Jew more than a ‘White-Christian-Consensus’ that could easily turn against the ‘chosen’ at the drop of a worthless dime. (Jews know their history and knavery.)

    DON’T THINK FOR A MINUTE that a ‘deep state’ exists. The term is a Jewish media ploy to deflect the goy from spotting the deep-rooted tentacles of Jewish control.

    If you finger the CIA as the culprit then you’re blind to the Jewish layer encased within it—The Mossad—Israel’s intelligence agency.

    If you pinpoint the FBI as the rascal then you’re blind to the deeply embedded intrigues of Jewish money that prefers lackeys like Hillary Clinton who shill for Zionist interests with solid predictability.

    And suppose you focus on The Pentagon as the source of America’s woes then you can’t see who cuts the military bosses’ checks, the Jew-owned Federal Reserve.

    NO SINGLE PRESIDENT nor political hack can oppose the interests of Jewish Wall Street.

    Bernie can talk up a puff of hooey against Jewish finance capital but his socialist program depends on fiat money manufactured by the Fed (owned by a consortium of Jewish banks) to fund his programs AT INTEREST and gouge the American citizen with increased taxes.

    Bernie the Jew is yet another huge deception.

    For while decrying Trump’s Venezuela coup agenda when tweeting, “We can’t go down this road again,” he touted it deliberately and strategically way too late, so as to appear against the coup, since Trump was already a hundred miles down the road of regime change.

    What will 2020 bring?

    An overturning with dogs on the loose and America in a Jew-ruined fix.

    If Sanders were still for strict immigration limits and the right of the citizen to defend his life, home and family against aggression with a gun, then perhaps he could say that he was for the common man.

    That horse has left the barn. Now he wants us to be helpless in the face of criminal aggression by government and civilians alike, and increasingly powerless against corporations/employers/landlords due to the overwhelming mass of people now competing for jobs, housing, and medical care on our territory.

Because of the short-sightedness and ignorance of the electorate, they will blame the sitting President for the collapse, instead of blaming the decades of bipartisan team-efforted folly that actually caused the problem.

    Bernie has about as much chance as a snowball in hell to win the democratic nomination and run against Trump. He should know better, running as socialist in a country that has pathological hatred even for the word socialism – let alone for what socialism actually stands for.

    They sabotaged his nomination in 2016 and it’s going to happen again this time around. There is a reason for hope, though. His popularity among voters shows that the concept: “Fake socialism is better than a real one” didn’t get the job done. Bernie is popular with the voters, not so much with the establishment – but then again – at this point they are out of touch with reality on almost everything.

    Is there a new model of the heart attack gun ? popularmilitary.com : ” Army sold the CIA an assassination gun that mimics heart attacks in its victims.”

  55. @zard

    I don’t think simply hitting the “AGREE” button is warranted here (see below, near the end).

    I agree with basically everything you said, sadly. But I’ll limit my reply to the subject at hand: Bernie.

    “Bernie the Jew is yet another huge deception.”

    Couldn’t agree more.

    I posted at SOTT.net about that way back in 2015 when Bernie was running against Hitlery, calling him a “zionist wolf in progressive sheep’s clothing”, and citing his “Assad must go!” statements as being incontrovertible proof of his zionist underpinnings and allegiance.

    Had Assad fallen then, ISIS and Al-Qaeda would have turned Syria into a endless horrifying bloodbath of Christian, Yazidi, Shia and various other innocents, while Israel stood by and cheered them on. Israel’s leaders have been uniform in publicly declaring they’d prefer ISIS and Al-Qaeda to Assad, and all that entails for the people of Syria. Lovely.

    And once the head-choppers in Syria had done the zionist’s dirty work, they would be disposed of (via our blood and treasure, as usual), and the zios would simply waltz in and start grabbing everything that was not nailed down, all in pursuit of that equally lovely “Eretz Israel Project” so dear to their collective hearts.

    I also called attention to Bernie’s statement (so cheered by the easily deceived), “If Wall Street won’t regulate themselves, we’ll regulate them!”, and simply noted that this was another of Bernie’s ridiculous, deceptive (but alarmingly effective) statements that amounted to nothing, as Wall Street always promises to be ‘good’ when threatened with regulation, but somehow their collective feet are never held to the fire (surprise!) No matter what Bernie promises, I expect nothing but a different flavor of ‘more of the same’. Like Obama’s “Change we can believe in!”, that was all chump change for the ‘believers’.

    But the reason I did not simply hit the “AGREE” button is that for me, and possibly many others, when we posit “Jews” as being the source of much, if not most, of what troubles the US today, and similarly, a great deal of the rest of the world, we forget all the regular, ordinary, every day jews down at the bottom, who likewise are simple pawns in this ugly judaeo-centric power-play nightmare we cannot awaken from. How many innocent jews were slaughtered via 9/11 in the Twin Towers? Did “Lucky” Larry Silverstein and Co. give a talmudic turd about them?

    So while I agree with basically everything you said, I think when composing a long (and accurate) post such as yours, we simply add in a small paragraph that reminds everyone, including ourselves, that us little guys at the bottom are in it together, jew and gentile alike, and that this must not be forgotten in the anger that I believe we all feel at being used and abused over and over by these murderous, thieving Tribal thugs at the very top, who employ us all as their disposable ass-kerchiefs on a seemingly endless basis.

    Thanks for a great post! It was refreshing…….

    Don’t worry Unz posters. As I said before, most of you won’t qualify for re-education. Far too gone!

    The radical marxist commie Jew leftist socialist Bernie Sanders and his mass murdering college student followers will be building special-education camps for you all.

    Where you will be forced to look at nudey pics of Ilhan Omar 24 grueling hours a day. Forced to watch spongebob squarepants till your eyes roll back in your heads. When you begin to show improvement, not likely, you will receive a daily ration of ice cream.

  62. Matthews is apparently firmly convinced that Sanders, if he wins the election, plans to dress up like Fidel Castro, march Matthews and his cronies out onto the Great Lawn, and go full-bore Daenerys Targaryen on them.

    I would take my children to enjoy the spectacle, except that hotels in New York are so damn costly.

    Matthews used to be quite a decent TV commentator about 30 years ago, but success, money, and too much contact with the plutocracy has gone to his head, and it is about time to decapitate him.

    I wish he had stayed in the race, although I understand the decision, realistically. I’m still mailing in my vote for Yang in the Anti-White-Party primary here in California. (Nobody for me to vote for in the republican primary, where I have always voted in the past.)

    His universal basic income proposal deserves serious consideration — especially if it is funded by large cuts in both military/war spending and welfare-bureaucracy spending rather than hefty new taxes. (Elsewhere I’ve proposed new federal taxes to help fund a UBU, if necessary, that will not affect the solid majority of US Citizens: a tax on remittances of cash to recipients outside the USA, and an excise tax on marijuana products, both of which are large and growing markets.)

    I realize that congress wouldn’t muster a majority for such cuts in the welfare bureaucracy and programs, even to fund a UBI. Even serious cuts in military spending, bases abroad, and aggressive wars and occupation, are hard to hope for right now. We need to clean house for this idea and most other sensible ideas to have chance. Not optimistic, just saying it is what I advocate.

    Andrew Yang is way to my left, and I found much of his platform other than UBI to be facially unwise and unrealistic. But thanks to Mr. Yang for trying to focus attention on a growing problem that other candidates in both parties largely ignore or downplay. If some congressional district or state is going to elect someone from that party, let it be him instead of their other typical choices.

    The Weather Underground types of the late 60’s and early 70’s, who were they to have obtained power were prepared to murder 25 million people in the United States which they had deemed could not be ‘re-educated’, and who at the time readily self identified with the Manson Family, have bided their time and have now obtained the ascendancy within the Democratic Party.

    Bernie Sanders campaign workers are on record that ‘cities will burn’ should they not get their way come election time, and have spoke glowingly of the Gulag of the old Soviet Union.

    Considering Iowa, the Bernie people may well just lose a rigged Democratic party nomination process. [Done purposely with the ulterior motive of provoking the Bernie folks, not that it would appear to take much, to ‘revolutionary action’ such as a Red October 2.0 type of event?]

    And with the term ‘civil war’ popping up more and more in the media, well, it seems the United States sadly may well experience it’s own Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese style ‘civil war’, the latter a reference to the Vietnam War as it is more traditionally called.

    I put ‘civil war’ in quotes as I don’t see these as civil wars in the traditional sense, but as Solzhenitsyn alluded in his writings, rather they are wars against identity.

    More broadly still, I would call these ‘dialectical wars’, ie wars between the ultimately complimentary ‘Capitalist’ and ‘Communist’ wings of this manufactured and faux Hegelian Dialectic which the world has been in thrall to since 1776 and 1789.

    Whether the true believing ‘Capitalist’ or ‘Communist’ knows it, both are working towards the ‘United States of the World’, and London has historically been behind both of these persons.

    Anyhow, considering the pattern of digging up and desecrating rotting corpses by the Communist element of this contrived dialectic, which the world has seen in China, Russia, and in Spain, as in 1930’s Barcelona below, there’s no reason to think they wouldn’t try something like that in the United States.

    Amongst likely others, the presently interred remains of prominent Confederates come to mind, and ‘Founding Fathers’, too, such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, as after all, they had owned slaves.

    Most would rather such macabre scenes not take place. They would rather the likely accompanying mass murder not take place as well, either.

    People wonder what they can do.

    Well, as a start, as individuals they can refuse to play ‘the game’.

    They can refuse to take part in and support this manufactured and controlled dialectic, ie it’s Capitalism, Communism, it’s so called ‘progressive’ establishment ‘right’ and ‘left’, and their ‘synthesis’ in global ‘Multi-Culturalism’.

    They can tell those that are pushing it, in part, or, in whole, that ‘we are not your play things, ‘we are not your toy soldiers to do with as you wish.’

    ‘We have our own lives.’

    Yes, it’s against all the odds, but it is something.

    “Whoever wins must be prepared to take the _full_ heat if the economy collapses.”

    That could be an interesting perspective. I think that the oligarchs who own the Democratic party to a large degree see Sanders and people from his movement as a much bigger threat than Trump and right-wing populism – certainly, Sanders is quite moderate, but it seems that the oligarchs see his version of moderate leftism as a big threat. (Yes, of course, they say all the time that Trump is so terrible, but I think that is mainly meant to blackmail their base into supporting an allegedly more electable “moderate” – if Sanders becomes the front runner, this won’t work, and then, we will probably see much less negative coverage of Trump in the mainstream media.)

    I thought that the Democratic establishment wants Sanders to lose big if they cannot easily prevent his nomination. Then, for the next decade or two, they could say that it was a mistake to go so far to the left and only people who obediently serve the oligarchy can be nominated. Whether they can achieve such a colossal loss for Sanders and a big win for Trump is another question, but I thought this was a likely scenario in case they cannot or do not want to prevent a Sanders nomination.

    But if it is considered that a financial crisis is likely in the next few years, some in the establishment may actually want Sanders to become president in order to take the heat for the collapse. Certainly, many of them also don’t like Trump very much, but Sanders and the whole left-wing movement being used as scapegoats for the economic collapse would probably be more valuable for them.

    The candidates are lying. The mass media is lying.

    So–I am just following their example!

  86. “… I’m kind of pulling for Bernie this time. I don’t believe he has a chance, … ”

    Once and for all, can we all just get two things straight about Sanders?

    1. Sanders is healthily ensconced in the Democratic Party establishment. There’s no greater evidence for that than the way he simply rolled over for Clinton in the 2016 US Presidential Election; and so

    2. the realpolitik of Sanders running for the Democratic nomination is to legitmate the illusion that the American people have democracy. In other words, its yet another example of offering American voters false hope.

    … and this book, Democracy in America? should be required reading by every ‘analyst’ who purports to write on US politics:

    “America faces daunting problems – stagnant wages, high healthcare costs, neglected schools, deteriorating public services. Yet the government consistently ignores the needs of its citizens, paying attention instead to donors and organized interests. Real issues are held hostage to demagoguery, partisanship beats practicality, and trust in government withers along with the social safety net.

    How did we get here? Through decades of dysfunctional government. In Democracy in America? veteran political observers Benjamin I. Page & Martin Gilens marshal an unprecedented array of evidence to show that while other countries have responded to a rapidly changing economy by helping people who’ve been left behind, the US has failed to do so. Instead, we have actually exacerbated inequality, enriching corporations and the wealthy while leaving ordinary citizens to fend for themselves.

    What’s the solution? More democracy. More opportunity for citizens to shape what their government does. To repair our democracy, Page & Gilens argue, we must change the way we choose candidates and conduct our elections, reform our governing institutions, and curb the power of money in politics. By doing so, we can reduce polarization and gridlock, address pressing challenges, and enact policies that truly reflect the interests of average Americans.

    This book presents a damning indictment. But the situation is far from hopeless. With increased democratic participation as their guide, Page & Gilens lay out a set of proposals that would boost citizen participation, curb the power of money, and democratize the House and Senate. The only certainty is that inaction is not an option. Now is the time to act to restore and extend American democracy.”
