Bernie Sanders Upsetting the Mouth Foamers

Bernie Sanders, the socialist candidate for the Democratic Nomination who’s been eating Hillary’s lunch, is a moderate on guns. He’s not as pro-gun as we would like him to be, but by the standards of the modern Democratic Party, he’s much better on our issue than anyone else in the Democratic field, save maybe Jim Webb (who doesn’t have a chance). Bernie says, “I think I can bring us to the middle.” One group that’s having none of that are the mouth foamers over at CSGV, having a conniption over the idea that they shouldn’t be allowed to file frivolous lawsuits against gun manufacturers. Sanders’ says:

Now, the issues that you’re talking about is, if somebody has a gun and it falls into the hands of a murderer, and that murderer kills somebody with the gun, do you hold the gun manufacturer responsible? Not anymore than you would hold a hammer company responsible if somebody beat somebody over the head with a hammer. That is not what a lawsuit should be about.

CSGV is upset because Sanders just exposed to everyone, on the left I might add, how utterly ridiculous and radical groups like CSGV, Brady, and Everytown have become. Even the socialist can’t buy into their “common sense,” and certainly isn’t helping them perpetuate their deception. To make matters even worse for CSGV, you have outfits like MSNBC saying, “Overall, I’m generally skeptical that gun policy represents a real threat to Sanders’ support from the left.” Could that be because, as we’ve been arguing all along, that no one on the left really cares all that much about gun control?

I’d never vote for Bernie Sanders, but I admire his being up front and honest about his values. At least I know what I’m dealing with. He’s not an empty suit floated on behalf of bomb throwing radicals, trying to sell himself as some sort of moderate by reading a mean speech off a teleprompter. I hope he gives Hillary a run for her money.

    I’ve been saying for years majority of leftists out of NYC don’t care much about gun control. They may have some belief in the idea, but won’t take any action in support of it.

    Bernie is the gift that keeps on giving. Economically he shows just how far left the Democratic party has gotten in the US. That whack job drew 10k people to an event in Wisconsin recently.

    • Kristophr says:

      He’s just being a non-hypocritical Marxist.

      Of course he wants the workers armed.

      • Sebastian says:

        Yeah, really. I’d think a consistent Marxist would believe in no guns for the bourgeois, but guns for the proletariat.

  3. f knauss says:

    I think you meant “everyone in the Democratic party”. Bernie is one of the few left of center politicians we have left in this country.

  4. mikee says:

    Bernie is to the leftist Democrats what Bob Dole was to establishment Republicans, the man who has earned his time as candidate.

    Like Dole, the moment Bernie starts talking he exposes himself as not what the true believers want, and the base starts staying home on election day.

  5. Ian Argent says:

    Bernie Sanders can get away with having and holding principles because those principles match the desires of his small and homogeneous constituency. HE doesn’t have to compromise.

    Presidents have to compromise.

    His principled stance is admirable (even if I disagree with his principles) as a representative for his constituents in the Senate. His being in the race will hopefully have salutary effects on the rest of the field. But I don’t want an inflexible ideologue in the OVal Office, no matter the ideology.

    Also, NRA appears to have him either D or F rated. Over, as far as I’ve been abel to tell, a vote for the original AWB? Anything newer?

    • Sebastian says:

      CSGV is butthurt because he voted yes on PLCAA.

      • Ian Argent says:

        But why is the NRA butthurt? AWB, sure, but that was over 20 years ago. I guess they scored some confirmation votes, but still.

        • Otis says:

          If I remember correctly, he pushed pretty hard for the proposed 2013 AWB as well, and in favor of magazine capacity restrictions at the federal level.

  7. Thirdpower says:

    Wow, they’re getting eaten up on their own page. Their claims are getting stupid even for their own nitwit believers.

    • Jim Jones says:

      That was surprising. It is fascinating to watch the left eat their own when they stray from the reservation. Some CSGV intern is actually insulting and downright losing supporters in the comments. Wow.

      • Thirdpower says:

        That could be any one of their general staff. The superiority complex, pathologies, and anger management issues of their Comm Dir., one Ladd Everitt, is off the charts.

  8. mike123 says:

    He voted AGAINST the Brady background check bill. That is a better record than most of the Republicans running.

  9. HappyWarrior6 says:

    The man is all over the place. He has a voting record like no one else! Votes against the Brady bill, FOR an AWB but FOR PLCAA.

    He has one of the most schizophrenic pro-gun voting records you can find for a Dem senator. He’s honest about his home state, though still doesn’t get that the 2A is not just for “Bermont”.

    I’ll give him credit where credit is due.

  10. Jim Jones says:

    I disagree. Although he wouldn’t campaign on gun control, which Hitlary seems intent on doing, he would sell us down the river at the first opportunity. Do you really think that if Sanders was President, and a Sandyhook 2.0 presented itself, that he wouldn’t be out in front of cameras asking for “common sense” reforms. C’mon. We all know better than that.

  11. Shawn says:

    You have to remember that when it comes to progressives that they will eat their own if it comes down to it. As far as the media concerned Hillary will become present there is no stopping it. If Bernie Sanders becomes enough of a threat the media will do everything in its power to destroy him.

  12. tincankilla says:

    I’m feeling the Bern. Of course, I’d prefer NOT living in a gerontocracy where people are still fighting over 1968.

    I’ve read that when animals see their own image reflected in a mirror, they can’t recognize themselves. It appears that also is true of partisans.
