In an interview with The Hill, Democratic presidential candidate and avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said China had done more to address extreme poverty than any country in history. “What we have to say about China, in fairness to China and its leadership is, if I’m not mistaken, they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization, OK. So they’ve done a lot of things for their people,” Sanders said. He’s right. According to the World Bank, the number of poor in China went from 880 million in 1981, to less than 10 million. But I wonder how they did that? Well, the Chinese “socialists” killed millions of poor people, so there’s that. Dead people aren’t poor. Just dead. They called that the “Great Leap Forward.” After that, they used a tool Bernie despises: capitalism. It was only the Chinese rigorously adopted free-market principles, private ownership and decentralization, that they transformed their economy from a house of horrors to something much more humane. The things that saved a billion lives in China are the things Bernie thinks harmed our country. The lesson is that those who scream about inequality embrace ideas that create more inequality. By replacing equal opportunity with equal outcomes, you end up with two classes: the poor and the powerful. Which happened in China. And it seems to be happening in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Baltimore, too. Of course, China went “whole Communist,” resulting in mass murder, religious persecution, forced abortion and famine. The number of dead in China under Mao has to be counted in the tens of millions. So yeah, praise is in order for China finally coming around to abandoning bad ideas. Maybe Bernie should do the same.
Yeah… I wouldn’t hold my breath on that, Greg. As usual, Greg Gutfeld nails it with his pithy wit. Bernie is an unbelievable hypocrite. He’s a millionaire with three mansions, who underpays his own staff…and that’s just for starters.. And, this all the while he’s preaching his socialist nonsense; how the rich need to pay their “fair share.” Hey Bernie! How about you sell one of your three mansions. After all, you don’t “need” all three. And, why don’t you donate the proceeds to the poor. Lead by example! Unreal… And, let’s not forget that Bernie and his then fiancé had their honeymoon in Moscow…back when it was the Soviet Union. Think about that…especially those of us who remember those days.. An American couple having their honeymoon in the Soviet Union. Wow.. Bernie is someone who hates America, and how it was founded. He hates capitalism, and yet has greatly benefited from it with his book deals and so on. Remember that the next time you see angry, crazy Bernie talking about a “living wage” or some other similar socialist bs.
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., routinely slams corporate executives and makes calls for wage hikes, a stance that comes across as hypocritical thanks to a new report, according to Greg Gutfeld. The self-described democratic socialist is reportedly taking heat from campaign staffers upset they are being paid “poverty wages” and not the $15 per hour that is a hallmark of the Sanders campaign, Gutfeld claimed Friday on “The Five.” “He is, just by existing, a hypocrite,” he said. “He’s a socialist millionaire with three homes. Wealth is good for him but not for others.” Sanders reportedly has a net worth of about $700,000, but has made more than $1 million annually in recent years. He and his wife Jane own a house in Burlington, Vt., he purchased a $575,000 lakefront property in the Green Mountain State in 2016, and the couple owns a 19th-century townhouse in the District of Columbia. On “The Five,” Gutfeld said it is important that Sanders, “appl[y] the damaging policies that he wants to do to Americans onto his staff.” “But why won’t he?” he asked. “Because he knows when you raise wages… you have to reduce the number of jobs because ‘the pie’ doesn’t grow. “The purpose of the minimum wage is it’s the first rung on the employment ladder. The problem with the left is… they see the first rung as the last rung because they’re not economically competent.” In recent weeks, Sanders has called for a $15 per hour minimum wage on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” and at campaign rallies in Rock Hill, S.C. and in Augusta, Ga. Adding to Gutfeld’s remarks, host Juan Williams claimed the wages Sanders staffers are making average out to $13 per hour. The staff is also unionized, Williams said.
Greg is definitely right.. Regardless of your personal politics, or party affiliation, Bernie is clearly a spectacular hypocrite. But, then again, so are most socialist leaders. They’ll want to impose their failed economic/political system on everyone, but themselves. Socialism keeps people in mediocrity, except those at the very top who are millionaires (some even billionaires) with multiple mansions and so on. And, that’s been true throughout history. Bernie is just the most glaring, brazen example in American politics. Kudos to Greg for calling out that self-righteous hypocrite on his bs. For more, click on the text above.
Did you hear? President Trump tweeted. The tweets are being called racist because Trump told critics of the United States to go back to their country. Now those critics are holding a press conference to respond. Trump’s comment sounds bad, if you leave the rest of it out. He actually said, “Go back to your countries, fix the problems there — and then come back, and show us how you did it!” How many racists say “leave,” and then say, “please come back and help us?” Probably zero. But Trump messes with the media’s reading comprehension, so they only digest half. See, Trump’s mistake is to assume everyone sees the whole picture. Fact is, the media and Democrats wish him ill and read his tweets with ill-intent. The rest of us are left to explain it all. It’s like doing stand-up while your friends are sitting at the tables explaining your jokes. That’s where I step in — I read the whole thing. My summary? After he said “leave,” he said, “please come back!” If anything, it’s a challenge. But why quibble with context? Still, the president could work harder on the details. Like the fact that only one of the Squad is from somewhere else. Also, maybe don’t tweet about the Democrats while they’re eating each other alive? So, yeah, I could’ve worded the tweets better than Trump. But, unlike his critics, at least I could read them.
Hahaha!! Greg, as usual, absolutely nails it here! The liberal media is SO gullible. I agree with Greg that Trump’s timing probably wasn’t that good. He should have waited til AFTER the 2020 election, and then if he wins re-election, THEN go after these idiots and say this sorta thing, and watch their heads explode. As it is, the Dems are in a circular firing squad eating each other for lunch, and by Trump doing this, he gave them something to unit against. But, nothing racist here, as Greg clearly shows. More fake news from the dominantly liberal mainstream media. Typical… Greg Gutfeld currently serves as host of FOX News Channel’s (FNC) The Greg Gutfeld Show (Saturdays 10-11PM/ET) and co-host of The Five (weekdays 5-6PM/ET). 🙂
