Huma’s guy Carlos Danger questions Socialist Bernie’s loyalty

Huma’s guy Carlos Danger questions Socialist Bernie’s loyalty

. . . to the Democratic Party, cuz Carlos Danger is all about loyalty

Did you know that Anthony Weiner, aka Carlos Danger, writes a regular column for Business Insider? In his latest piece, he wonders why Bernie Sanders, who’s an independent socialist, is running for the Democratic nomination.

This is pretty entertaining stuff:

ANTHONY WEINER: I have one big question for Bernie Sanders

Apart from the Donald Trump sideshow, one of the biggest stories in the presidential election this past week has been the apparent momentum Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) is enjoying in his underdog campaign.

Sanders has been drawing crowds of thousands at his rallies and is quickly becoming the main primary rival of Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. I totally get Bernie Mania. However, I’m deeply conflicted about it.

My wife works for Hillary so there’s that. But I’m also torn because I don’t really understand what he is doing.

It’s good that Weiner admitted that last part. After all, he is married to Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton’s most trusted aides.

Weiner continues:

I served with Bernie and he is my kind of politician — a progressive guy with some New York City attitude. It’s hard not to love Bernie Sanders. The Brooklyn accent perfected at Madison High School and Brooklyn College and the rumpled mad scientist look are perfect compliments to his colorful and unyielding presentations.

Still, I have one major question for Bernie. What exactly does he think he’s doing in a Democratic presidential primary? Why is he asking for the nomination of a party he always avoided joining?

That’s actually a very good question. Bernie Sanders has spent years of his senate career describing himself as a Democratic Socialist. What business does he have running as a Democrat now? Weiner provides a partial answer:

There’s no question Bernie’s leftist agitating is filling a void in this primary process. The Democratic Party has a strong primal scream element right now. It expresses itself in frustration that the high expectations of change that came with President Obama have not been met. It howls at the failure of candidates who hew to the middle of the road and it feels the need to counter the batshit crazy it sees dominating the debate on the other side of the aisle.

Our party needs a kick in the butt. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), Paul Krugman, and Jon Stewart are currently the standard bearers for that sentiment.

But Bernie Sanders? I just don’t know.

After a career of steadfastly insisting that the Democratic party was not his home, now he wants to not only be a member of the party but its standard bearer? What changed?

What changed? Elizabeth Warren decided not to run. Here’s the part where Weiner keeps saying socialist:

Is Bernie’s newfound party affiliation just a practical decision to run in a party that can win rather than risk being a Nader-esque spoiler on a third party line in November? That’s a fair calculation, but doesn’t it wipe away Bernie’s three decades of standing as a principled Socialist?

Many times over the course of his career Bernie has repeated the line that his independence made him more able to speak truth. He argued forcefully that being a Socialist was his identity and not function of political expediency. Well, duh, nobody chooses to be a Socialist to smooth their political path. Yet, as 2016 approaches, here he is filing papers all over the country presumably declaring himself a member of the Democratic Party.

The better Sanders does, the more “concerned” progressive Democrats appear.

Sanders can take Weiner’s questions seriously if he wants, let’s just hope he doesn’t let Weiner anywhere near his social media accounts.

Follow the weiner and it leads you to hillaryschnizel. As trump says, “Hey, that’s not Kosher!”

What changed?

Bernie Sanders didn’t change. He’s still the lovable old Socialist he always was.

What changed was the Democratic electorate. Within the past decade they’ve dropped the pretense that they’re anything other than socialists themselves.

Bernie didn’t move on the political spectrum. The Democrats moved to join him.

Of course not all of them are willing to admit it. Yet.

All in all, this simplifies things.

AWen did Anthony Weiner get respectful enough to get a BI column?

    Ragspierre in reply to SeniorD. | July 12, 2015 at 2:52 pm

    BI became a Collectivist “organ” some time back. And I mean that in the most possible “sphincter” sort of way…

Perhaps he will also write about all the email issues specifically

– Huma’s use of private email
– Huma’s contract with state that allowed her to keep private clients
– all of Huma’s contracts with private clients

Would it be just ugly of me to note that Ant-knee is the Muslim Brotherhoodlem’s Jewish butt boi…???

Serious question…

What is Bernie up to? He is trying to take over the Democratic Party, which has veered so sharply to the left that he thinks he an win as a Democrat.

Remember the prominent Democratic leaders screaming that the Republican party was being taken over by racist (Tea Party) radicals? They were screaming about that to avoid talking about how their party was being taken over by racist socialist radicals. They knew what was happening to their own party and wanted to defuse the issue, by setting up the notion that both parties have gone further to extremes.

    At this pace, today’s Demorat Party will have a 2016 ticket of Sanders/Weiner.

“I don’t really understand what he is doing.” who cares ? since Wennie is an idiot why would anyone ask his opinion ?

I completely forgot about Mr Danger. And it must be so cool to be a politician because no matter how stupid you look, no matter how much lying you get caught at, you can always get a job as a commentator.

Anthony Weiner is a non sequitur. Focus elswhere.

At least Bernie is not, unlike Hillary and Anthony, chasing after Huma’s ah, um “junk”.

I seem to recall Bernie, the new patron saint of leftists, has his residence in a town that is something along 87% white.
Just another racist democrat spouting out the lies to keep the plantation running smoothly.

After all the racist crap from Obama, and the sell out to Iran, riotous Democrats lost track of their base socialism. So Bernie shows up with his decades of socialist diatribe down pat … and he’s that cool drink of water to offset Hillary the lying screacher. Bernie speaks “socialism” much better than rude Obama, the racist rabble rousing Marxist.

Is Bernie loyal to the Democrat Mob? Will he deliver favors to those that bribe him, via his foundation or campaign donations, or other illicit means? I really don’t know, but he has to be better than Hillary. Bernie seems much less likely to have direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood like Hillary.

I don’t quite get the difference between the “progressives” and the “socialists”, except maybe that Democrats thrive on racist identity politics, plus corruption. Democrats seem more destructive, a top down fascist regime, using any subversive tool to tear down and destroy the capitalist enemy, while enriching their various syndicates.

But a President Bernie would have have his hands full rooting out the corruption our already too socialist system has wrought. Holder, Lerner, Hillary .. might be held to account in a Sanders administration. Bernie the Impaler … to the rescue. 😉 Plus he’d be easier to defeat.

Anthony Weiner is just doing and writing what Bill and Hillary Clinton want him to.

This is a kind of argument of disqualification that’s not personally against Bernie Sanders.

Anthony Weiner has now goten apart in a movie. (the Clintons are finding easy, well-paid work for him, even though it is difficult because he is not alawyer)

The movie is Sharknado 3. It will be shown Wednesday, July 22, on the Syfy cable network.

Anthony Weiner plays the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (not under his own name, although Michelle Bachman and others may appear under their own names.)

He gets killed in the movie – maybe eaten by a shark.

Weiner says most of the C-listers get eaten.

Damn you, Aleister. I’d forgotten about AW.
