Bloomberg doesn't rise to piece of shithood, he's more of a nugget, a little constipated nugget.
He isn't there because he thinks he'll win. He honestly CAN'T be that stupid.

So I'm guessing that his 'running mate' will be the real story. Probably Hillary, Michele or Bernie.

And yes, I know it is ridiculous. I simply can't think of a non-ridiculous option for them.

Sanders staff member's toxic Bernie Bro shitposting is revealed, and it resulted in him losing his position. Scott Bixby, the reporter who wrote the story, is attacked by other Bernie Bros.

'Bernie Staffer Mocked Warren’s Looks, Pete’s Sexuality on Private Twitter Account'
During the most recent presidential primary debate in Las Vegas, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) suggested that critiques of some of his most antagonistic online supporters are largely unfounded and unfair, proposing that some of the worst offenders might actually be Russian trolls on a mission to sow disunity in the field.

But the private Twitter account of a newly promoted campaign staffer indicates that despite his condemnation of online harassment, at least some of the Vermont senator’s most toxic support is coming from inside the house.

Using the account @perma_ben, Ben Mora, a regional field director for Sanders’ campaign based in Michigan, has attacked other Democrats in the field—as well as their family members, surrogates, journalists, and politically active celebrities—in deeply personal terms, mocking their physical appearance, gender, and sexuality, among other things.
Bixby tweeting evidence of online harassment after his story was released.

Who gives a fuck about those shits, though? Sanders himself is problematic if he becomes the Democratic nominee. Right now it's looking like the Democrats will put him up, and though I've been saying for some time that Trump has a good chance of being reelected, I think that if Sanders gets the nomination Trump's chances are improved.

So you didn't see the expose of Bernie staffers calling for gulags and reeducation camps?

THIS is the one that worries you lol

I guess if the source of information is distasteful to major media companies, they will gleefully ignore it.

Yeah, go ahead and claim that the tankie yammering by one Sanders staffer = 'staffers.' There is definitely a shithead element in Sanders supporters. However, I'm unaware of anybody going out and shooting innocent people because of their ethnicity while praising Bernie Sanders.

"There is definitely a shithead element in Sanders supporters."

That's because Trump and Sanders are populists. Populists get a huge Twitter feed. Twitter is how we elect all presidents from now on. Oh, a small portion from old farts reading Facebook.

Do you think they only showed one of his staffers in the hidden cam 'expose'?

Funny, I knew there were more...

Maybe your news team will get the rest to you when it suits them.

It's not surprising that more than one tankie supports Sanders. It's not even all that surprising that his organisation is apparently OK with that. Nice fodder for Breitbart and Chris Matthews; I think that Sanders should disavow their bullshit.

Do you actually believe that Sanders would like to re-create the Soviet Union in the US?

I have listened to him, and like him (though I doubt he can win)

His 'dangerous' ideas can't go anyway - unless he gets a lot of support from both sides of the aisle, so I'm not worried if he does get in. Certainly no more than anyone else.

I would like to hear him say what he doesn't like about communism, and socialism. His affection for those is what his detractors focus on most, so I would be very interested to hear.

Unfortunately, it won't fit into a 30 second soundbyte, so it probably won't be fair.

Sanders has always been opposed to all forms of authoritarianism, even as long ago as when he was a member of the Trotskyite communist party (officially named the Socialist Workers Party). Unsurprisingly, the main stream media don't advertise this fact. After all, they are owned by billionaires and therefore slant their reportage in favour of Democrat presidential candidates who have no policies that would affect their desire to add more billions to their net worth. That is a dangerous idea Sanders simply will not resile from, so the MSM regard him as an enemy. Their editorial policy reflects this by stressing his socialism and ignoring democratic in his democratic socialism stance.

Nevertheless, every now and again a report of Sanders's opposition to socialism without democracy, his blanket rejection of authoritarianism - including that found in communist countries - inadvertently slips through.

Question: Hi Senator Sanders, so my father’s family left Soviet Russia in 1979 fleeing from the same socialist policies you seem eager to put in this country. How do you rectify it with the failures of socialism in every country that has tried it?

Sanders: Thank you for that question. Is it your assumption that I believed in authoritarian communism that was in the Soviet Union? I haven’t, and I opposed it.
Continues here

Sanders, who describes himself as a "democratic socialist," was pressed on CBS's "60 Minutes" program on Sunday about positive comments he made three decades ago about communist states, particularly his statement that Castro had vastly improved education and health care in Cuba.

"We're very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba, but you know, it's unfair to simply say everything is bad," the 78-year-old politician said.
...
Likewise after visiting Cuba in 1989, Sanders praised its achievements in education and healthcare, calling Castro's revolution "profound," but also noting the lack of political freedoms.

"The question is how you bring both economic and political freedom together in one society," he said at the time, according to the Rutland Daily Herald.

The Russia and Cuba thing reminds me of a friend in Finland when I was 15. His dad was a communist. They had those in the 60s, whereas all the leftist ideology is now in the social democrats and the green party.

Anyway, his dad, my friend's, would sit in the living room, reading a paper. I would chat with him and he would point out the Russian radio he got on his trip to Leningrad. "Best radio he ever had." There were small groups going there by 69-70. My dad had also visited a food plant by 66. The communist was not stupid enough to get a Russian TV set. It would have required even more trips to get new tubes for it than a regular TV. I saw one, it looked cheap. We had a Finnish TV, in a very nice modern wood housing, a Luxor in black and white.

I listened to him for a few hours (his podcast interview)

He seemed a lot less crazy, a lot less authoritarian.

But that isn't what will be showed during the shit-show.

I wish he could eludicate clearly, where he differs on it, while on that 'you have 1 minute' venue (debate stage)

Dem's just blocked the 'born alive' bill. It's uncanny how often the same tactic is used against them - push them to align with the furthest-left fringe of their party, then criticize them for being fringe.

Some doddering old fool, who is faking a presidential run, claimed that half the US population had been shot since 2007. 150,000,000 people.

He is being treated as a serious contender.

"His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it." —From the OSS’s psychological profile of Adolf Hitler
