Bernie Sanders: We Will Mobilize People to Make Sure Biden ‘Becomes the Most Progressive President Since’ FDR

Bernie Sanders: We Will Mobilize People to Make Sure Biden ‘Becomes the Most Progressive President Since’ FDR

There is nothing progressive with big government.

https://youtu.be/R3-7F9gEy0o

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told his followers that they will “be mobilizing people all across the country to make sure” Joe Biden “becomes the most progressive president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.”

Sanders used the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic to bash the medical system and President Donald Trump because we all know that none of this would have happened under failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

In all honesty, it is hard to follow Sanders’ rant because it contains all of his usual talking points: Free healthcare, working people, billionaires suck, income inequality, blah blah blah.

Sanders admits the economy sucks and laments about people not having jobs or money to pay rent. Does he realize that the Democrats pushed to shut down the economy, which caused people to lose said jobs!?

All of this ends with him wanting Biden to become FDR:

“The day after Joe is elected president — we’re going to be mobilizing people all across this country to make sure that he becomes the most progressive president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.”

What a shock. You mean the Democrats are going to use the pandemic to push their progressive big government ideas? No way.

The New Deal:

Almost everything FDR did to jump-start growth retarded it. The rise in the minimum wage kept unemployment intolerably high. (Are you listening, Nancy Pelosi?) Roosevelt’s work programs like the Works Progress Administration, National Recovery Administration and the Agricultural Adjustment Administration were so bureaucratic as to have minimal impact on jobs. Raising tax rates to nearly 80 percent on the rich stalled the economy. Social Security is and always was from the start a Madoff-style Ponzi scheme that will eventually sink into bankruptcy unless reformed.

How about the 1933 Agricultural Adjustment Act? He paid farmers not to produce crops:

What happened when we paid farmers not to produce? First, Americans had to pay more for bread, corn and cotton shirts. The higher prices for farmers meant price increases for customers buying farm products.

Second, because farmers were growing smaller crops, we used up more quickly the food being grown, and soon had to import the very crops we were paying farmers not to produce. In 1935, the U.S. imported 36 million pounds of cotton, 13 million bushels of wheat, and 34 million bushels of corn.

How about we make a president act like President Calvin Coolidge and his Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon?

Their policies saved us from hitting a depression in the early 1920s. Mellon insisted a cut in taxes and Coolidge lived by laisez-faire, which allowed failing businesses to fail. It was tough at first, but within a year, everything cleared up.

I highly recommend Mellon’s book Taxation.

Nothing is showing that’s going to happen

Easy to make promises you know you won’t have to keep, eh Bernie?

Translation: if Biden is elected, there will be even more riots.

    Certainly that, but significantly there’ll be more government and more taxation as those behind Joe (we’re looking at you and your members, CFR) will push him to enter even more international “agreements” that will strangle even more US sovereignty.

    All in the effort to bring about the NWO.

Joe already wanders around the basement thinking he’s Eleanor Roosevelt

    They let Gropey Joe out of his basement today, and once again he couldn’t even form a coherent sentence.

    Test FAILED!

    Back to the basement with you, Gropey Joe!

make sure that he becomes the most progressive president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Cool! So that means concentration camps for Americans are back on the menu, right?

    JusticeDelivered in reply to tom_swift. | August 31, 2020 at 5:25 pm

    “Cool! So that means concentration camps for Americans”

    Obama, Hillary, all swamp dwellers, anyone connected to BLM or ANTIFA, politicians with an IQ of less than 100, anyone who has had more than one baby on welfare, rioters.

    How much space would we need, is there enough available land in the desert? 🙂

It’s awfully nice of the Dems to write Trump’s campaign ads for him.

Progressive (i.e. [unqualified] monotonic) political party. Diversity dogma (i.e. color judgment) breeds adversity. Political congruence (“=”) and exclusion. Pro-Choice, selective, opportunistic quasi-religion. #HateLovesAbortion

Basement Joe is just a sock puppet, no surprise he will be removed or mafe irrelevant a few moths after he if he does win.

    Unless he dies he won’t be formally removed, because Harris needs to get to the 2 year point to preserve her eligibility for two terms as President. If his dementia gets bad enough he basically has to be locked up for his own good his total absence in public will make it obvious he’s been sidelined, but I doubt Congress would have the guts to formally remove him.

Keep talking, Bernie.
Every one of these idiotic rants will be in a Trump commercial.

Bernie is helpful. He lets us know what the Democrats really think, and he is not at all nuanced about his obsessive hatreds. Now if only he could explain why the Great Society’s failure led to this.

There is no progress in progressivism.
.

It is enlightening to hear that Bernie recognizes FDR as the depraved socialist he was.

Bernie is echoing the exact statement made by Angela Davis VP of the American Communist Party. She claims Joe would be the softest of the two and the easiest to sway to their way of thinking.

MoeHowardwasright | August 31, 2020 at 6:02 pm

Joe…a man without a coherent thought in his head. Letting a man with out coherent understanding of what his policies have wrought in other countries., be his spokesperson. SMH! China bought both of these tool bags. Package them up and send them overnight priority to Beijing.

I can believe it. Biden would be a figurehead for however long he lasts; the senior staff would be running the show, and if they were on the liberal/progressive side of things that would be the agenda.

Now another leftist like a squad member needs to come out and say “And we’re going to make joe biden grow a soft spot for rioters!”

Are these people secretly putting money on a PDJT win?

    CorkyAgain in reply to CKYoung. | August 31, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    There are some people on the far right who are advocating what they call “accelerationism”: they say we should let the Left have their way and go to such extremes that the people will finally have had enough and rise up against the whole corrupt system.

    It could be that what we’re seeing here is the radical leftist version of accelerationism. When Trump wins in November thanks in no small part to these Democrat “mistakes”, expect the radicals to double down on the Hitler comparisons and for the rioting/”protests” to continue until they get the crackdown they’be been trying to provoke.

    And speaking of FDR, there are many people who are concerned about what they see as an untenable situation in the stock market, housing bubble, and other areas of the economy. If and when that SHTF, whoever is in office will get painted as the next Herbert Hoover. So watch the Dems obstruct and try to stymie whatever Trump does to restart and stabilize the economy. (They love their old playbook and haven’t had a new idea in years.)

      How they gonna do that from a traitor’s grave?

      CKYoung in reply to CorkyAgain. | September 1, 2020 at 1:06 am

      Corky, heard of accelerationism, interesting theory, the left pulling their version of it. I would say a fatal flaw in a plan like that is PDJT’s coattails. If Congress flips GOP, the Senate stays or gains GOP, it will be a greenlight for the MAGA/KAG agenda, at least for two solid years. It will also be much, much easier to do things like invoke the Insurrection Act, since PDJT will not have to slow down or waste energy with impeachments and dozens of Congressional investigations etc. The amount of political corruption that is going to be exposed is what I believe to be driving the swamp/deep state into this suicidal frenzy. They are throwing hail Mary’s, swinging haymakers and scorching the earth because they really don’t have much to lose at this point. Decades in prison, being outed as traitors… might as well try to burn down the whole country at this point. Just a few years ago even hinting at political violence was unthinkable and would have ended a politician on either side. I don’t believe it was a coincidence one of the dirtiest (and dumbest) ones to first come out was maxine waters. I bet she bounced the idea off her colleagues and knowing she is low IQ and actually would, they sent her out to test the waters (no pun intended). $83,000 no show job in Ukraine at a corrupt oil company with daddy running cover is going to be nothing compared to what we’re going to learn.

FDR is a hero to the communists. Remember that he locked American citizens in concentration camps for no reason other than their ethnicity. That makes FDR no better than Hitler.

    Milhouse in reply to Ironclaw. | September 1, 2020 at 12:07 am

    Um, excuse me?! No better than Hitler?! That’s so ridiculous you must be a moby.

    Hitler’s crime was not ordering certain German citizens not to live in three of Germany’s states, and providing camps where they could live if they had nowhere else to go.

      tom_swift in reply to Milhouse. | September 1, 2020 at 8:19 am

      and providing camps where they could live if they had nowhere else to go.

      And the armed guards and the barbed wire around these camps were there to make them more attractive to prospective tenants?

      But if that was the case, the security arrangements would have figured prominently in the brochures. So, why did published wartime photos carefully omit any evidence of these luxuries?

Ol’ Joe Biden
Better off Hidin’

Gets out today and can’t talk.

Tells heckler “Don’t Jump!”

Watch:

Joe Biden Messes Up His Reading Of The Teleprompter Again

Weasil-Zippers

That’s interesting. Joe can’t be progressive by himself; leftists acting out are needed. Which has a coercive quality about it.

So, the violence will continue?

When will this worthless old commie assume room temperature?
