Bernie Sanders Made Over $1 Million Hawking Socialism Last Year

Socialism has never led to anything better than economic stagnation, and often results in tyranny and genocide. Why do people continue to promote it? Maybe it’s for a classic capitalist reason — they can make a good buck:

Thanks in large part to his successful foray into authorship, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) made more than $1 million in 2016. That’s according to his latest U.S. Senate financial disclosure, which he filed Sunday after receiving a 20-day extension.

In addition, his wife makes somewhere between $192,000 and $815,000 from retirement mutual funds. Presumably a large percentage of this is from the golden parachute under which she floated off to luxury after bankrupting Burlington College. We would know more, but Sanders cagily refuses to release his tax returns.

No wonder he can afford a $600,000 summer house.

The primary source of his ample income is writing books extolling the expropriation of other people’s wealth.

    Just think: If Crooked Hillary hadn’t skunked him with the rigged d-cRAT primaries, he might have been elected president and by now –just after 5 months in office – he’d be in Chavez territory money-wise. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d56cb6ab30e0165fb1e9f07eb5d26953ddfcad1c366a72a2f67cec90162d0a4f.jpg

    If your yearly income from any outside sources is greater than your congressional and any other federal yearly pay, you must relinquish your Federal salary, and any retirement benefits that are accrued by you; as you obviously don’t need it, and you obviously were NOT doing the peoples work. This oughta save a bundle.

    The irrelevant ‘North Korea’ red herring and whether Bernie Sanders is a Nazi [Video].
    Mention one of the biggest socialist bugaboo’s to the nation’s Left, that the abbreviation for Nationalsozialistische [deutsche Arbeiter-Partei] and invariably one will pipe up with the irrelevant ‘North Korea’ red herring. This is their futile attempt at distracting from a very damaging fact to the Left, that those people were a socialist workers’ party.

    Not only does this, place them all in the same ideological realm, but it also eviscerates one of the Left’s biggest historical lies – that a socialist workers’ party is somehow supposed to be on the right. Communists and Socialists like to disavow their ideological brethren as somehow being further ‘right’ than they are and thus ‘Right’ wing. They play this little game with a bit of ideological relativism in the same manner as someone situated in Meeker Park or Boulder could consider that Denver being to the East in a relative sense is thus an ‘Eastern’ city.

    In many ways it is sad and unfortunate for the nation’s socialist Left that the best they’ve been able to muster over the years has been that pathetic irrelevancy that fails to prove anything other than Leftist love to cherry pick data to yield the best results for their propaganda efforts. The fact is one can easily cite many a country name that is a true reflection of their national character such as:

    The Principality of Andorra, Australia, Barbados, Belize, Canada, The Cook Islands, The State of Eritrea, Hungary, The State of Israel, Japan, The State of Kuwait, Malaysia, The Principality of Monaco, Mongolia, Montenegro, New Zealand, Independent State of Papua New Guinea, The State of Qatar, Romania, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, The Independent State of Samoa, Solomon Islands, The Swiss Confederation, Tokelau, Tuvalu, The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,The United States of America.
    But that is conveniently ignored by those trying to distract from the fact that the Nazis were a Socialist Workers’ Party.

    But this brings us to this video from the fine people at Turning Point USA asking college students Is Bernie Sanders a Nazi?

    In essence, those students didn’t know the meaning of a common abbreviation from history and didn’t realize that they are all part of one big socialist family. But that is to be expected given the woeful state of education these days and that no one on the nation’s socialist Left has been able to come up with a better retort than referring to irrelevant factoids selectively plucked from the ether.

    Another pathetic DemonRat hypocrite extraordinaire. Like the Idiot Media (of idiots, by idiots, for idiots), I never believe or even take into consideration a word that comes out of their mouths.
