Socialist Sanders: Capitalism Made Me a Millionaire!

He also seeks to put pressure on Trump by promising to release his own tax returns.

“I wrote a best-selling book,” Sen. Bernie Sanders boasted in a recent interview with The New York Times. Then in an ironic twist, the die-hard socialist gave a plug for capitalism when he added, “If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.” Either Sanders is going senile or, as is the case with most hypocritical leftists, he sees no problem embracing the wealth and status he garnered for himself via capitalism, while at the same time condemning others for applying the same free-market system to earn their own wealth.

Back in the 1980s, Sanders infamously said that breadlines were “a good thing.” Asked about his support for the Marxist Sandinistas of Nicaragua, Sanders opined, “It’s funny — sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing! In other countries, people don’t line up for food. The rich get the food and the poor starve to death.” His policies would yield the equivalent of breadlines.

Meanwhile, Sanders declared that he will be releasing 10 years of his tax returns, giving away the game by declaring, “I hope that Donald Trump will do exactly the same.” Presumably, this is so socialist Sanders can attack capitalism for allowing a guy like Trump to become a wealthy man. It’s the pot — Sanders, with his millions of dollars and three homes — smugly calling the kettle black.
