Bernie Sanders’ socialist surge leaves Democrats fearful of losing everything

Democrats and political observers remain stunned as socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders continues to rack up wins and delegates.

And if the latest polls are any indication there will be more hand-wringing by elected Democrats around the country.

Because Bernie Sanders’ socialist surge is leaving Democrats fearful of losing everything this fall.

There is no denying that Bernie Sanders’ second run for the presidency is off to a much better start than his first.

Everywhere he goes he is greeted by crowds of young disaffected “socialists” in numbers nearly rivaling a Trump rally.

But unlike his last run at the Democrat nomination, this time those crowds and the excitement following his campaign are turning into actual delegate votes.

His recent stunning victory in Nevada and the even more stunning poll showing he is running a close second to Joe Biden in the more conservative South Carolina, have the Bernie Bros cheering.

But, for the rest of the Democrat Party, it has hands-wringing and blood pressures rising.

Because Bernie Sanders is a socialist. No let’s be clear, he is a communist. And there is starting to be real concern among the Democrat elites that nominating an out-and-out communist just may not be the best move politically.

And now Democrat House Leader Jim Clyburn (SC) has come out and admitted what many Democrats have feared – Bernie Sanders’ nomination could put the Democrats House majority at risk.

The third ranking member of the Democrat majority is considered a “king maker” among Capitol Hill observers and has endorsed Joe Biden for the Democrat nod.

And now he is sharing publicly the growing fears among Democrats that with Bernie Sanders at the top of the ticket, Democrats face losing to Trump again, losing any shot at taking back the Senate, and face the very real danger of losing the House as well.

During an interview on ABC News with George Stephanopoulos, Clyburn said, “A lot of people think so,” when Stephanopoulos asked if Sanders being the nominee could put the House majority in danger.

“I think that that would be a real burden for us in these states,” he says, pointing to Sanders’ socialist label.

These fears come on the heels of news that Americans are appalled at the way Democrat Nancy Pelosi is running the House, especially regarding the ill-fated impeachment effort.

Most observers believe the Democrat House majority is already in jeopardy, due to both Pelosi’s heavy-handed and radical agenda and the growing concerns about the far-left bent the party has taken in general.

Additionally, a record number of Republican candidates have already filed for House seats, including solid candidates going after once thought to be entrenched Democrat incumbents.

Clyburn, and other Party leaders, fear that if Bernie becomes the presidential nominee and thus “the face” of the “new” Democrat Party, millions of Americans will be turned off.

They won’t want Sanders’ brand of socialism, or his defense of Stalin, Castro, and other mass murderers and authoritarian regimes – something he is not backing away from.

That’s why we could be looking at a significant change in Congress this November should Bernie Sander become the Democrat nominee for President.

This could result in a newly re-elected Donald Trump with a solid Republican majority in both Houses of Congress – majorities that are ready to finally drain the swamp.

  1. If anyone votes for Bernie they must want are country bankrupted. I don’t think he is able to run he needs to retire and do all of us Republicans it will be one last Democrat to f### our country up.

  2. Rich: You referred to the democrap primary as a “clownshow”. What kind of “clowns” did you have in mind for that show?
    AssClowns, perhaps?

  3. If the moderate Democrats are alarmed, they can start giving greater visibility to pro-life Democrats.

    Instead of demonizing Democrats, if pro-lifers really want to end abortion, it’s going to have to be bipartisan. I told Jim Frey of Berkeley Pro-Life over a decade ago that we (Democrats) never see pro-lifers venture beyond their own base. Rather than reach across the aisle to Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc., and try to bring them on board with protecting unborn children, they just play to the same old Ronald Reagan / Oliver North crowd.

    If pro-lifers really want to end abortion, opposition to abortion must come from across the political spectrum. Pro-lifers are going to have to venture beyond their own base and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals etc. to distinguish abortion from arguably victimless crimes like marijuana; to argue on secular grounds that the unborn are persons (secular arguments are religion-neutral, and thus applicable to everyone, including atheists and agnostics) and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc. to see the killing of the unborn on par with domestic violence, hate crimes against LGBTs, etc.; and make the case to Americans that it’s possible to protect prenatal life without taking to draconian measures violating a new mother’s privacy and civil liberties in this regard.

    Robert Casey, the former Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, said he believed a pro-life liberal Democrat would easily be elected president: conservatives would vote for a pro-lifer, and liberals would vote for a Democrat articulating opposition to abortion as a secular and nonsectarian civil rights issue. In 1994, even archconservative Pat Buchanan had kind words for Robert Casey! If pro-life Democrats had greater visibility in past decades, perhaps Carol Crossed would have been the first female speaker of the House.

    After the 2016 election losses, Nancy Pelosi admits that the Democratic Party’s support of abortion has not been a winning issue. Pelosi spoke to the Washington Post about whether her party should support pro-life candidates or require that candidates support easy access to taxpayer-funded abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

    Struggling after heavy election losses in 2016, many in the Democratic Party are debating whether to support pro-life candidates, especially in rural areas where voters tend to be pro-life. Some, like Pelosi, appear to be recognizing that the party’s support of abortion-on-demand-up-to-birth is losing them voters.

    Unfortunately, rather than seeing the abortion issue as a real loser for Democrats, especially in red states (crucial with winning the Electoral College!), Pelosi blamed Hillary Clinton’s loss on pro-life voters themselves! Clinton supported the unpopular platform of forcing taxpayers to directly fund abortions, and she promised to nominate Supreme Court justices who would uphold Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand up until birth, if elected.

    Pelosi told the Washington Post : “You know what? That’s why Donald Trump is president of the United States—the evangelicals and the Catholics, anti-marriage equality, anti-choice. That’s how he got to be president. Everything was trumped, literally and figuratively by that.”

    Pelosi, who supports abortion but describes herself as a Catholic, said many in her Catholic family are pro-life. She also mentioned U.S. Sen. Bob Casey from Pennsylvania, a Democrat with a mixed record on abortion.

    “You think I’m kicking them out of the Democratic Party?” Pelosi said.

    Jay Ware, a black Democrat in Illinois, said on the Democrats For Life email list as early as 2004 that it should be automatic: just as the Republican Party supports pro-choice candidates like Rudy Giuliani and Arnold Schwarzenegger in blue states like New York and California where pro-lifers can’t win and even has Republican president George W. Bush campaign for them, Jay Ware said the Democratic Party should similarly support pro-life Democrats in red states where pro-choicers can’t win, and have Democratic presidents campaign for pro-life Democrats, etc.

    Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said in 2014, “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

  4. Sanders is a clear and present danger and should be hounded out of the USA. Then too the democrats have something to occupy themselves with. The ‘do nithing’ dems have something do.

  5. My prediction: If Bernie does somehow manage to win and become president there WILL be a civil war in this country. Half the country is not going to accept a communist president. They will fight back. I’ll be one of them. Bernie will have to turn the U.S. military against our own population. It will be a disaster of biblical proportions.
    I’m just saying.

  6. I don’t get it. Why does everyone think Bernie can’t beat Trump?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want to give up their private health insurance?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want to pay for the health coverage of illegal aliens?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want to pay for the student loans of other people’s kids?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want The Green New Deal?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want a mandatory gun buyback?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want to decriminalize illegal immigration?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want higher taxes, and $15/hr minimum wage?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want to restrict charter schooling?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want to end the electoral college?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want felons voting?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want to shut down all nuclear power plants?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want to force farmers to be more climate friendly?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want unlimited abortion? Abortion on demand?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want higher capital gains tax?
    Don’t a majority of Americans want a tax on wealth?
    With a platform like this Bernie should beat Trump in a landslide don’t you think?

  7. If Bernie wins the Demented-Dems-Primary-Clown-Show and is “screwed again” by the DNC expect a rerun of the 1968 Democrat Convention as his “field coordinators” have already threatened to disrupt and burn down Milwaukee. ?

    If Bernie wins their Primary expect Trump to win a second term by a 20% margin, otherwise known as a Land Slide, and the Democrat Party will be in disarray for the next two decades. They deserve it!

  8. If the Democrats select Bernie Sanders as their candidate, they will lose big time. Who wants to vote for a cranky old man like Sanders…!!!

  9. JULIO: THERE IS ANOTHER JULIO PASTING/COPYING THE SAME EXACT THING YOU HAVE POSTED. PLAGIARISM IS ALMOST AS PITIFUL AS THE MESSAGE.

  10. The Dems are going to lose almost everything, because they were planning on taking every American for everything we have, for their own corrupt purposes. Now it’s time for them to pay the Piper! They hedged their bets against hard-working Americans and they are about to lose it all to the house, our house, the house called America!

  11. “Democrats fearful of losing everything” . . . REALLY?? They certainly SHOULD be concerned about “losing everything”. They’ve worked very hard to accomplish that goal! I wish them God’s speed . . .

  12. Democrats you promoted this ass hole (burnie) now deal with it. Hillary’s knows how ! I’m sure ! Obama whistleblower , ebstine , ECT. ECT. Democrats abusing every rule of law , and fantasise on how to manipulate the system, demons do exactly that , obscure the facts , you know like lawyers.

  13. Yes let’s replace Trump with a man who praises a government that teaches citizens how to read while they’re standing in line to receive their monthly meat ration.

  14. You got to be stupid to vote for Bernie! I don’t care if you think MEDICARE FOR ALL is important! Who do you think is going to pay for it? You are! Because no doctor going to wait on you if you think he got to! Sander goal is to control your MONEY! Like his wife and him control the COLLEGE IN VERMONT! Til it file bankruptcy and close up! Bloomberg don’t think you are intelligent enough to under how to balance a check book! All you think about is FREE, FREE, FREE, everything! But in long run YOU LOSE! Just as Hitler did to the youth of GERMANY. Just like the Democrat has been doing to the black race! Where is your house that supposed to be FREE? CAR? FOOD? Nothing free in AMERICA but a JOB help you get your dreams! One reason to vote Trump back in, in 2020!

  15. Now maybe you’ll understand why democrats don’t trust elections. That’s why the DNC took control away from the voters in 2016. If Hillary were in the running I wouldn’t give Bernie a chance of surviving the primaries, literally. There’s no such thing as a sure thing if you’re not the DNC’s first choice.
