Bernie's Lives Matter

Would you like a fine example of the expression "just can't win" in practice?
Look no further than what happened to Bernie "Boin-ie" Sanders at an event at a Seattle park in which he was due to commemmorate the founding of Medicare and Social Security. Members from Black Lives Matter (Only When White People Are Involved) stormed the stage, grabbed the microphone from Sanders and said, "BLM on the mic! Break it down, yo!"
OK, what they really said was, "Bernie Sanders, I would like to welcome you this place called Seattle. Which is actually occupied Duwamish land. Stolen!"
Who'd have thought that Sanders' version of "This Land is Your Land" would come back to haunt him?
Now then, you cannot get more left-wing than Boin-ie Sanders. The self-avowed socialist, Independent senator from Vermont and Democratic presidential candidate has promised to apologize for slavery if he gets into office. Because a film about slavery and civil rights like 12 Years A Slave, Selma, Django Unchained and 500 Years Later, coming out every year just hasn't been enough to awaken the consciousness of those pesky Typical White People for whom racism is part of their DNA. (We know this is true, because President Barry Hussein said so.)
Not enough for the Black Lives Matter flotsam. No, not by a long shot. Bernie Sanders might as well be a far-Right wingnut as the protestors ripped into him for apparently being too complacent regarding alleged police brutality. You know, police officers holding the line and protecting themselves from thugs. Poh-lice bru-TALITY, son!
"Join us now in holding Bernie Sanders accountable for his actions," the Seattle chapter of BLM (OWWPAI) urged the crowd. The protesting rabble also cited inequality of schools and gentrification taking place in Seattle among their grievances. Evil, evil gentrification. Where the marketplace pushes out the undesirables who make bad neighborhoods bad. Because everybody just loves living next door to feckless, violent poster persons for Margaret Sanger's manifesto with chips on their shoulders. Right?
Sanders was pushed around by a couple of loudmouths, silently backed away and exited stage left, allowing the podium and the entire event to be taken over by brainless zombies. Now doesn't that just speak to great leadership abilities? (Trump will clean their clocks when they pull this garbage with him.) He did recover in time for the second rally at the University of Washington's Hec Edmundson Pavilion in which he criticized the "billionaire class" and told all assembled:
"Too many young lives are being destroyed by the so-called 'War on Drugs' and too many lives are being destroyed by our system of incarceration. No President will fight harder to end the stain of racism and reform our criminal justice system."
Golly gee, ain't that swell?
Too many lives destroyed by incarceration, Boin-ie? How about the lives destroyed which led to the incarceration of those concerned? Oh yeah, comrade, I forgot. Like most Lefties of your stripe, you don't care about those. Innocent victims will have no place in Sanders' America. Unless they're black or Latino or illegal.
As The Who once sang, "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."
By the way, to go off on a bit of a tangent, if I may: Has anyone come up with a formula yet to determine what a liberal would do if one illegal alien killed another illegal alien? Is there an answer to this vexing problem? Would the origin of the person killed be revealed or would that be hushed as with the perpetrator of the crime? I think they would pretend to decry the illegal alien victim's killing while letting the illegal alien criminal—if that's not a completely redundant phrase—slip through the system. In other words, you can't even trust the progressives with illegal alien lives. I guess they too must suffer the occasional casuality in the country's race to the bottom.
Sanders has balls, I'll give him that.  To pose as the savior of the nation and the candidate for the everyday man and woman forty-three years after penning an essay entilted "Man—and woman" in which he postulated that women fantacize about being raped by three men while having intercourse "with her man" takes some chutzpah.  I guess that's the result of growing up in a hippie commune.  Maybe he's learned from it. Only time will tell.
In the meantime, I wonder what these Seattle members of BLM (OWWPAI) are going to do if the land they're on is stolen, occupied Duwamish land? Are they prepared to hand it back and live elsewhere? Of course not. There are too many supermarkets and too few people on food stamps. That issue must be tackled first, you see.

Oh Bernie Sanders. He reminds me of a crazy scientist. While I obviously could never vote for the man, I'll give him one thing: He says what he is and he is what he says he is. You know what you're getting with him.

Black Lives Matter is as stupid and irrelevant as Occupy Wall Street. In fact, it's more stupid. Get. A. Life. I'm so tired of white guilt.
