You have to feel sorry for Bernie Sanders’ supporters. Hillary Clinton used dirty tricks to keep him from scuttling her presidential bid. To make matters worse, they ended up with Donald Trump, their most detested presidential candidate ever. Then we find out that the Virginia shooter who was trying to kill Republicans was a Bernie Supporter.
Most of Bernie’s supporters are ignorant. Sanders is a millionaire, his wife is being investigated for financial shenanigans, and he’s a religious bigot who rejects the Constitution he took an oath to uphold. This says nothing of his terrible political (Marxist) philosophy.
Even so, they are dreaming the impossible dream that he will ascend to the political Olympus to become the next President of the United States. They are rallying for their political god with more of their ignorance and naiveté showing:
There was a large rally on Saturday night for the pie-in-the-sky set of the American public who long for government interference in every aspect of their life and increased taxes on anyone but themselves.
“Revolution” is not what they think it is. It’s a song expressing skepticism about changing society via revolution! Here are some of the lyrics:
But when you talk about destruction

But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow
To add insult to injury to the Bernie crowd, it turns out that John Lennon was not the revolutionary many people believed him to be, at least not in his later years. First, he was super rich. Second, he liked Ronald Reagan. Third, he was not an atheist, contrary to his contradictory song “Imagine.”
We’ve come to learn that John Lennon was embarrassed by his early political and social radicalism…
