Democratic Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders just praised how liberals have made “fringe,” “radical,” and “extremist” ideas “mainstream” in the United States. What world is this guy living in? We think he’s been living in the elitist liberal bubble his entire adult life.
Americans are definitely turning away from the extreme left because of what it brings with it. The extreme groups like Black Lives Matter rioted and destroyed businesses. Bernie thinks that’s good? The $15 minimum wage hasn’t worked out so well either. One word…robot. How about Obamacare? That’s a disaster too! We had 8 years of ‘radical extremist’ views in the Obama White House…How’d that work out for us? The truth is that it was a horrible period in American history.
HERE’S WHAT BERNIE HAD TO SAY:
“Many of the ideas that we talked about were thought to be fringe ideas, radical ideas, extremist ideas,” Sanders told a progressive audience at the We the People Summit in Washington, D.C. “Well, you know what? Because of your efforts, those ideas are mainstream American ideas.”
Sanders credited the audience and progressive activists around the country for making their ideas more accepted.
“I want to thank all of the groups here, because whether you know it or not, you have helped transform this country in so many ways,” he said.
The senator urged the audience to continue their efforts and not to get complacent or “give up.”
“We are obviously in a pivotal and unprecedented moment in American history, and the fights that we are waging are not just for ourselves; more importantly they are for our kids, our grandchildren, and the future of this planet,” Sanders said. “And if anybody in this country who thinks that now is the time to throw your hands up and give up, you are dead wrong. Now is the time more than ever to stand up [and] fight back.”
