    Default Why the democrat party really fears Bernie Sanders

    The democrat party is in full throated panic over Bernie and his Sandernistas. The real question is why. From a policy perspective there is nothing Bernie has said he wants to do that today’s modern democrat party hasn’t said they want

    There isn’t a hairs bit of difference between Bernie and the rest running for President from a policy standpoint.

    But the one difference is that Bernie calls himself a socialist. That is what they are afraid of. For the first time in a presidential election Socialism will be on the ballot and democrats down ballot will have to defend it

    Democrats have always preferred the incremental approach to bringing socialism to the US. If it is on the ballot and loses, they could lose ground for a generation.

    Yup.
    But their behavior the last 3+ years is going to have the same effect so why not let it hit bottom, then the only possible direction is up

    I don't think they fear him, I think the upper echelons of the party don't like him and never have. If I had to guess, he's only allowed to caucus with them and run for the nomination this go around to be a whipping boy and likely would have had a "heart attack" in 2016 if he didn't put his funds towards Hillary.

    I think bernie means it more. he still may be a corporate shill, but he's less obvious than all the others. they fear authenticity.

    IMO Bernie dares to say what DEMOCRATS really want, and the Party bosses know that honesty is not in their interest.

    The other day, Gropin' Joe Biden begged Sanders to muzzle his supporters, because the DEMOCRATS are scared that the voters will reject their radical plans for the USA.

    Biography:

    Grind is one of the internets most beloved and influential political thinkers and deep-level theorists in the modern era. He rose to prominence in early 2015 when he alleged, contrary to the dominant theory of christiefanism of the time, that Bill Clintons wife was indeed running for president and wasn't considering settling down to be a grandmother. In 2016, Grind was one of the key figures in proposing the new revolutionary theory of "30% is not a rare occurrence" which shook up the JPP political landscape like no other theory ever had before. His academic prowess, deep-level analysis and remarkable insight into human nature and psychology will undoubtedly result in further complexities being untangled and laid bare. He currently resides in boston, his hobbies include #rekking libs, vaping, and patriotism. You can find him in a thread near you.
