Bernie Getting Eaten by the Beast He Helped Create

“A poetic version of the confession of German pastor Martin Niemöller reads, “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.” A chilling reminder of the effects tacit complicity in propaganda and acquiescence to identity politics can have on both the person and the nation as a whole. The mainstream media and the political left have turned victimhood into a political asset, accusation into conviction, and identity politics into a weapon. They have created a beast devoid of reason, and that beast has now turned to devour one of their own, an icon of the modern left, Sen. Bernie Sanders.”

“One can say what they will about Bernie Sanders’ politics, but he is no liar and has never demonstrated any sort of sexism. Sanders has always been upfront, straightforward, and honest. Warren, on the other hand, has fabricated tale after tale of victimhood at every turn and for every advantage, and has only been encouraged, or rather, incentivized, to do so by a media that has been habitually complicit in her actions. Now, Sanders stands in Warren’s path to the nomination. Of course she was going to turn her victimhood at him, and, of course the media was going to go along. The beast has been created, fed, and now it is turning on Bernie.”

“Bernie Sanders is an upstanding, if far left, Senator. But where was he when they came for Kavanaugh and where was he when they came for the Covington Catholic boys? Where was he when Elizabeth Warren lied time after time to seize victimhood and where was he when the left-wing media sought to destroy without consequence anyone they opposed? Bernie never said anything, and now they’ve come for him.”
