Bernie Sanders Claps Back After Liz Cheney, Daughter of Bush VP, Attacks 'Fraud of Socialism' on House Floor

I’ve a little quote for you.

Martin Niemöller

(1892-1984), a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me."

Block –

This is a favorite quote, posted here quite frequently and slightly differently.

You’ll note that at the link below you will find varying extreme definitions of “socialism”
both as a liberal concept and as a fascist concept.

Even where Merriam Webster acknowledges those differences, it does not seem to
go far enough still in doing so.

Americans want a system like Norway’s according to polls.

And we see proven over and again that socially responsible government produces
healthier living standards for their citizens. We saw that for 70 years here with New Deal.

We also see the destruction that capitalism brings very rapidly – it’s basically suicidal.
Global Warming one of the saddest examples of those results.

Capitalism is fascism.

Unregulated Capitalism is merely organized crime.

SOME Jews - just like SOME Moslems, SOME ‘Christians’, SOME any crazy belief system you like - even SOME atheists! Same applies if you treat the word Jew as an ethnic/racial term. There’s good and bad (and middling) in every section of humanity, however you group it!
