Call the police!
That was the response of Sanders campaign staff Thursday.
In South Carolina, officials for everyone’s favorite political candidate who wants to take away the rights of Americans to own their own business called the law on undercover journalists with James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.
You may have seen recent video of PV, wherein — as I covered January 15th — a staffer admitted Bern’s a conventional follower of the Nazis’ favorite economic system “masquerading” as a democratic socialist (was there ever any game-changing difference?).
Well somebody called the po-po on them fools.
And why? Because the reporters were pressing campaign peeps over comments made recently by Bernie field organizer Martin Weissgerber.

BREAKING: 2ND PAID STAFFER PRAISES GULAGS

I feel like I should embed that twice, but maybe you can just watch it again.
As for killing the rich, taking away business rights will certainly do it: It’ll kill the rich as a class.
Except for the politicians, of course.
Legislators AOC and Bernie favor a system in which they have all the control over products and production.
The cop who responded to the distress call told Project Veritas what’s what:
“They said that the only thing they’re gonna have is no comment. If you try to make contact with them, it’s no comment. … It’s one of those things where they wish he hadn’t said that, but they’re still standing by him…”

It seems to me that, if they didn’t want to answer questions about Martin’s remarks, they wouldn’t have also expressed solidarity with him.
Here’s more of his thoughts, as compiled by The Daily Wire:
“Let’s force them (billionaires) to build roads. … Rebuild our roads, rebuild our dams, rebuild our bridges. Let’s force them to do that.”
“Well, the gulags were founded as re-education camps. … What will help is when we send all the Republicans to the re-education camps.”
“I’m already on Twitter, following numerous groups around the country that are ready to organize yellow vest protests. I’m ready … I’m ready to start tearing bricks up and start fighting. … I’m not — no cap, bro. I’ll straight up — I’ll straight up get armed, I want to learn how to shoot, and go train. I’m ready for the f***ing revolution, bro. … I’m telling you. Guillotine the rich.”
“I think I was radicalized from the day; first day I was born … my dad, is a Marxist. Like, straight-up from Belgium … he took part in Paris ’68 and all that, which is really cool. … I’ve always made it, I’ve always been unapologetic about it since I was younger, I always said, you know I’m a Communist … in my house, we had, you know Das Kapital, Engels, and Marx and all that sh*t. … I’m a Communist that believes in direct democracy, direct communes on everything. Pretty much, anarcho-syndicalism. Unions everything. I hope, but I don’t know how effective that is in addressing climate change, for instance.”
“Oh, yeah. My dad is real; my mom is, but my mom is really left as well. But she can’t make her views known, because she works for WBUR, which is NPR, so she’s more held back. But you know … But then I went, I started studying it. That’s what I studied in college, I studied Russian his–., Soviet history. … I became the resident Marxist. … But, yeah, I’m all about the complete seizure of the means of production, nationalizing everything.”
“I only learned this sh*t in college when I started studying the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union was not horrible … I mean, for women’s rights, the Soviet Union — I think — the most progressive place to date in the world.”
“The first gulag that was opened; have you heard about Belomorkanal? They dug a canal; the plan was, in 1922, I think, to dig a Canal from the White Sea all the way to Saint Petersburg…a long way, if you look on a map…and, the whole point — it was going to be called the Belomorkanal, and I read — I spent a whole semester actually studying primary accounts from the Belomorkanal. The whole point of the Belomorkanal, there were no machines allowed. They forced the people to dig with shovels and hoe the whole canal, right? You should see the people writing about their time at the Belomorkanal. There’s this one guy, he was a thief from Georgia who had been captured. He was sent to the Belomorkanal to work and in his writing, like ‘I reject all thievery, I reject that past life.’ He said, capitalism made me into this thief, because when there’s poor people, there’s going to be crime. He said, ‘I went to the Belomorkanal and I worked.’ He became a shock worker, which is what they call the leading workers, people who always met the quota and exceeded the quota…and, like people came from America to work at the Belomorkanal for the Soviet project, the communist project. It was a beautiful thing.”
“Leave it to the Soviets to make the most badass f***ing, most effective gun in the world…AK-47…the destroyer of imperialism and coloniali[sm]. … That’s why I want to get it [AK-47] tattooed on me.”
“So, do we just cease — do we just dissolve the Senate, House of Representatives, the judicial branch, and have something Bernie Sanders and a cabinet of people, make all decisions for the climate? I mean, I’m serious.”
How could a young person in America end up with those ideas?
I anxiously await your answers.
I’ll give him this, though: He clearly does understand that socialism means the seizure of production. Perhaps he’s just missing that he’s one of the people it would be seized from.
Socialism isn’t just the annihilation of the rich outside of government; compared to our American standard of living, it’s the prolific creation of the poor. Including those who voted it in.
Aw, heck with it. #Bernie2020. Venezuela, here we come.
I’ll stock up on toilet paper now and make millions after the election. But not billions — those guys’ll be building roads.
Martin only has one thing to figure out: How does he simultaneously elect Bernie Sanders and do terrible things to him? Bern’s worth millions.
Down with the rich! I mean, up with the rich!
