Bernie's three properties prove that he is a true socialist leader

Although Mike Bloomberg was generally a bust at the Democrat debate, with his reptilian, condescending air, he landed a couple of the debate's best shots, with Bernie as his target.  The one that landed hardest was his point about Bernie being a total hypocrite for selling socialism to the masses while being a millionaire himself.

Bloomberg's opportunity arose after he had already gotten off a zinger, saying capitalism works and communism doesn't, with the clear implication that Bernie is a communist (which he is).  In response, Bernie went off on a doubletalk rant about the fact that America is already socialist, except for the plutocrats who live off the government while America's workers starve.

Once Bernie had finished spouting this nonsense, during which he directly attacked "billionaires" (not millionaires, as he used to, but only billionaires), Bloomberg finally got his chance:

What a wonderful country we have, the best known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What'd I miss here?

Bernie instantly got defensive:

Bernie Sanders: Well, you missed that I work in Washington, house one.

Michael Bloomberg: That's the first problem.

Bernie Sanders: Live in Burlington, house two.

Michael Bloomberg: That's good.

Bernie Sanders: And like thousands of other Vermonters, I do have a summer camp. Forgive me for that.

What Sanders glossed over was how very nice his houses are and how he funded that lovely little "summer camp."  Indeed, with the phrase "summer camp," Bernie managed to imply that the last named is a tent with a couple of cots, rather than a $575,000 lakefront cabin with a guest cottage.

Roscoe B. Davis has created an incredible thread with information about Bernie's wealth acquisition.  It's long, so this is just enough to whet your appetite.  You must read the whole thing to understand how Bernie's socialism is for you, not for him:

Read the rest here.

By amassing wealth and property, Bernie has proven himself to be a true socialist leader.  After all, he's doing precisely what socialist leaders do: they impose poverty on the masses while enriching themselves because, in their own minds, they deserve it.  Moreover, having taken control over the government, they can get away with it.

When Hugo Chávez died, the man whose socialist policies destroyed Venezuela's economy was estimated at $1 billion.  His daughter, Maria Gabriela Chávez, was estimated to be worth $4.2 billion.  Fidel Castro's estimated net worth at his death was $900 million.  Kim Jong-un's wealth compared to his impoverished nation is beyond estimation.  For these leaders, socialism isn't a principled ideology; it's a racket — and Bernie's property holdings show that he's in on the racket.
