The Democratic Party is eating its own and Bernie Sanders appears to be the first victim of their self-purge.
Sanders’s Democratic competition is already making the case that he would be a weaker general election candidate against President Trump because of his “democratic socialist” label.
The Vermont Senator made a big splash on the first day on the campaign trail, raising a cool $6 million.
Opponents, however, have downplayed his ability to defeat Trump.
They see his socialist label as a potential limiting factor. One senior adviser to a rival campaign opined:
“I think socialist is a word that someone who wants to beat Trump should consider carefully before embracing.”
Naturally, Sanders supporters have come to his defense.
Larry Cohen, defender Sanders’s Democrat credentials:
“He’s clearly a Democrat and the party has grown enormously because of his efforts.”
Cohen went even further to suggest that Sanders has appeal beyond the traditional Democrat base:
“And his real brand is that he doesn’t just speak to Democrats. He speaks to literally millions of people that are unaffiliated. And he’s really talking about what we should aim for and where we can build a consensus.”
However, the other 2020 candidates have distanced themselves from the Sanders’s democratic socialist brand.
At a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Senator Kamala Harris dismissed democratic socialism:
“The people of New Hampshire will tell me what’s required to compete in New Hampshire, but I will tell you I am not a democratic socialist.”
Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rouke also piled on the Bernie skepticism by asserting that he’s still a “capitalist.”
O’Rourke downplayed democratic socialism telling reporters that “I don’t see how we’re able to meet any of the fundamental challenges that we have as a country without, in part, harnessing the power of the market.”
It’s ironic that Democrats, members of a political party that supports measures from confiscatory taxation, central banking, and state control of education, are desperately trying to re-assert their capitalist credentials.
It’s not like there is much of a difference between Sanders and your typical Democrat politician these days. Heck, Sanders is now embracing Democratic talking points on gun control.
Mainstream Democrats need to take a close look in the mirror and realize that they are quite socialist themselves. Alas, perception is reality in politics.
This just highlights the tendency of the Left eating its own. The fact of the matter is that the current-day Democratic Party is a wholly-owned subsidiary of globalist interests.
As a result, they will continue to go further left as time progress. Countries like Venezuela serve as cautionary tales of what happens when a political culture fully embraces leftism. You get to a point where voters only have a choice between hardcore socialists and socialist lite candidates.
Not many options there.
Sadly, this is where the Democratic party finds itself these days.
If they’re going to be honest with their constituents, Democrats might as well come clean with their socialist policies and stop trying to run away from the socialist label.

FLASHBACK: Man Arrested at Bill Gates’ Estate for Allegedly Exchanging Child Porn
In late December 2014, police arrested a Seattle man at Bill Gates and Melinda Gates’ mansion for allegedly compiling more than 6,000 child rape photos.
Rick Allen Jones was employed as an engineer at the Gates’ home and was accused of trading pornography images though Gmail.
He was charged with possession of child pornography.
At the time, the 51-year-old man had been collecting child porn for a decade, according to a report from King County prosecutors.
In 2013, investigators started investigating Jones.
They were able to track him down in March 2014 after he shared a suspicious image on Gmail.
Investigators initially failed to find Jones at his Ballard, Washington apartment. However, police ended up finding Jones at Gates’ estate.
It should be noted none of the crimes actually took place at the Gates mansion.
As Jones was talking to law enforcement at the Gates’ estate, three other detectives obtained a search warrant for Jones’ in Ballard.
At the apartment, the authorities found more than 6,000 images of grisly child porn and rape, 133 of which were children identified by police. On June 19, 2015, Jones plead guilty to felony possession of child pornography and failing to report child pornography.
He was sentenced to 90 days at King County jail, which was accompanied by two years of probation — a complete slap on the wrist when compared to similar cases.
Gates has been a leading proponent of globalist causes in the last few decades.
He is currently spearheading a movement to bring mass vaccination to the U.S. to fight the Wuhan Virus.
One of the nastier secrets of these elites are their alleged connections to vast pedophile rings.
Although there’s no concrete evidence to implicate Gates as a member of these networks, it is rather curious that an employee of his would get caught up in such activities and receive a light sentence.
