11 Ridiculous Quotes Revealing The Democrat Panic Over Bernie’s Rise
The Democrat Party establishment is losing its marbles.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders appears to be the favorite to win the nomination after strong performances in Iowa and New Hampshire, which is making Democrat bigwigs uncomfortable.
Michael Snyder of The End of The American Dream highlighted 11 of the most absurd quotes coming from establishment Democrats on Sanders’ rise as the Democrat favorite.
#1 Rahm Emanuel: Putin and Trump are picking their opponent.
#2 Joe Biden: ‘The Russians don’t want me to be the nominee,; Biden said on CBS News’ Face the Nation,’ later adding, ‘they like Bernie.’
#3 James Carville: ‘Right now, it’s about 1:15 Moscow time. This thing is going very well for Vladimir Putin. I promise you. He’s probably staying up watching this right now. How you doing, Vlad?’
#4 MSNBC’s Joy Reid regarding the tremendous enthusiasm of Bernie’s voters: ‘Democrats need to sober up, and figure out what the hell they’re going to do about that.’
#5 Democratic House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn: ‘If you know how well we did the last time and look at the congressional districts, these are not liberal or progressive districts. These are moderate and conservative districts that we did well in. And in those districts it’s going to be tough to hold on to these jobs if you have to make the case for accepting a self-proclaimed democratic socialist.’
#6 NPR’s Maria Hinojosa: ‘As somebody who has been around for a while…I want receipts. What has he done in all his time to actually deliver for Latino/a voters?’
#7 Pete Buttigieg: ‘Before we rush to nominate Senator Sanders in our one shot to take on this president, let us take a sober look at what is at stake for our party, for our values and for those with the most to lose.’
#8 Joe Lockhart: ‘In any political campaign, candidates need to know what they stand for, and who — or what — they’re up against. At this stage in the game for Bloomberg, that enemy is not Trump. It’s Sen. Bernie Sanders and the election calendar.’
#9 James Carville: ‘If you’re voting for him because you think he’ll win the election, because he’ll galvanize heretofore sleepy parts of an electorate, then politically, you’re a fool.’
#10 Hillary Clinton: ‘Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,’ Clinton said of Sanders in a documentary about the campaign, released this year. ‘He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.’
#11 MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: No pundit on the left has been more critical of Sanders than MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. In the aftermath of the vote in Nevada, Matthews actually compared the Sanders campaign ‘to the Nazi invasion of France in 1940…
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews’ take on Sanders has received the most attention. He stated, “I was reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940,” Matthews said during MSNBC’s live coverage of the caucuses on Saturday. “And the general, Reynaud, calls up Churchill and says, ‘It’s over.’ And Churchill says, ‘How can that be? You’ve got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over.’”
Additionally, Matthews even hinted that the Democrats should probably wait four years and then select “a Democrat that they like.”
“I’m wondering whether the Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be president. That’s maybe too exciting a question to raise. They don’t like Trump at all. Do they want Bernie Sanders to take over the Democratic Party in perpetuity?” he stated.
“I mean, he takes it over, he sets the direction of the future of the party — maybe they’d rather wait four years and put in a Democrat that they like.”
Matthew’s comments represent the growing anxiety among liberal elites with Sanders’ rise.
The Boomer managerial wing of the Democrat Party is a dying breed, with the more culturally radical Democrats represented by Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar are ready to take the reins of power.
