An introductory speaker for far-left Senator Bernie Sanders surprised supporters on the campaign trail this week; openly calling for a “socialist movement” to “end capitalist oppression and exploitation!”
“We need a powerful socialist movement to end all capitalist oppression and exploitation!” yelled Tacoma’s socialist city council member Kshama Sawant.
You don’t often hear introductory speakers for @BernieSanders talking about socialism. But in Tacoma, Wash., Kshama Sawant, a socialist on the Seattle City Council, just did.

Sanders addressed a massive rally in Tacoma, Washington this week; speaking to more than 17,000 supporters just days before voters in Nevada head to the Caucuses.
“Bernie Sanders rallied thousands of supporters in Washington state three weeks ahead of its presidential primary, calling for the grassroots movement that led to his win in the state’s 2016 caucuses to continue through the broader primary that takes place March 10,” reports MyNorthwest.
“We may not have billions of dollars to throw around, but we have hundreds of thousands of people in every state in this country knocking on doors,” he said. “And that’s why we’re going to win here in Washington and why we’re going to win all over this country.”
“We are a democracy, not an oligarchy,” Sanders said, referring to billionaire Mike Bloomberg. “You’re not going to buy this election.”
SOVIET STYLE! AOC Complains That She Has 66 Different Healthcare Options to Choose From
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her one-size, Medicare for All proposal Sunday; publicly complaining that she has more than 66 different healthcare plans to choose from each year.
“Members of Congress also have to buy their plans off the exchange. They are Gold plans that are partially subsidized. That means I get to ‘choose’ btwn 66 complex financial products. This is absurd. No person should go without healthcare, & no one should go through this, either,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Ocasio-Cortez launched a bizarre rant last week regarding her far-left proposals and entitlements; publicly complaining that “nobody is giving us a damn thing” and “we build this on our own.”
“It belongs to us anyway, it doesn’t belong to anybody else. I’m tired of this idea that Medicare for All, that tuition free public colleges are some hand-out from somebody else. Nobody else is giving us a damn thing. We build this on our own. We fund it, we establish it, we fight for it, no one should be able to take it away from us like they have been,” ranted Ocasio-Cortez.

The Congresswoman made similar comments last month, saying her policies don’t promote “free stuff” but call for “public goods.”
“Public education, libraries, & infrastructure policies (which we‘ve had before in America and elsewhere in the world!) are not ‘free stuff.’ They are PUBLIC GOODS. And they are worth investing in, protecting, & advancing for all society and future generations,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.
SOVIET STYLE! Bernie Says US Needs a ‘Political Revolution’ Because of ‘Hottest January in History’
Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders doubled-down on his calls for a “political revolution” this week; saying it’s the only way we can fight back against the “hottest January in recorded history.”
“Our planet just experienced the hottest January in recorded history. If our political system won’t allow us move quickly to 100% renewable energy as the scientists say we must, I believe it is time for a political revolution,” posted Sanders on social media.

A recent survey from Gallup could spell big trouble for Bernie Sanders’ chances of winning the White House this November; showing a majority of Americans simply won’t vote for a ‘Socialist’ President.
“A majority of Americans surveyed in a new poll said they would not vote for a socialist candidate for president, with the most opposition coming from Republican voters,” reports The Hill.
53 percent of those surveyed said “No” when asked if they would vote for a “generally well-qualified person for president who happened to be a socialist.”
“Democrats are much more likely to say they would vote for a socialist, based on the new poll. Gallup found that 76 percent of Democrats said they would vote for a socialist, whereas just 17 percent of Republicans and 45 percent of independents said the same,” adds The Hill.
