Commies (heart) Islamic State

BERNIE SANDERS: "Well, so long as we know what democratic socialism is, and if we know that in countries in Scandinavia, like Denmark and Norway and Sweden, they are very democratic countries. Obviously, their voter turnout is higher than it is in the United States. In those countries, health care is the right of all people. In those countries, college education, graduate school is free. In those countries retirement benefits, childcare are stronger than the United States of America. And in those countries, by and large, government works for ordinary people in the middle class rather than as, is the case in our country, for the billionaire class."

From Russia Today: "A leading Swedish politician says the country is facing a refugee catastrophe, which will lead to the country collapsing. The bold claims were made by Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom, who adds the EU needs to do more to take the strain off Stockholm."

And then there is this: "Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban accused billionaire investor George Soros of being a prominent member of a circle of activists trying to undermine European nations by supporting refugees heading to the continent from the Middle East and beyond."

Liberals love to quote the Arabic saying, which translates to The Enemy Of Mine Enemy Is My Friend."


  1. "Obviously, their voter turnout is higher than it is in the United States."

    Bernie, Bernie, Bernie. How do you explain the high voter turnout in countries that are dictatorships? It's up at the 99.99999% level. Is that because those countries are democratic? Or is it because voting for those in power is compulsory? We all know the Democrats want to turn the US into another Cuba where Oppression = Democracy.

    And PS, old man, about the Scandinavian systems, until recently they've been largely homogenous populations---a bunch of like-thinking white people---that lack the wide diversity of a country made up of many immigrant groups like the US. Those countries resemble more the individual states in the Union than the entire US. If we still believed in Federalism in this country, as the Founding fathers did, you could have your Scandinavian Nirvana. Unfortunately people like you, Sanders, have destroyed the Federal Republic and replaced it with an oppressive national government.

  2. Actually, the enemy of my enemy may be my ally, but I wouldn't bet on "friend".

  3. Liberals fail to mention that Norway has been wallowing in money due to its biggest resource: oil, obtained by off-shore deep sea drilling. Norway was one of the countries which offered aid after the BP spill but Obama refused, citing the Jones Act.

    Now Norway is experiencing financial problems, thanks to generous welfare benefits to ever-increasing migrant numbers. The tolerant Norwegians are stunned by riots, hostility and ingratitude from the Muslims, especially the young Muslims born in Norway, who have no interest in assimilation. Multiculturalism has failed in Scandinavia as much as it has in Western Europe.

  4. The Danish Prime Minister just slammed Bernie Sanders in a speech, saying that the Scandinavian countries are not socialist. Sure they are welfare states with high taxes to finance it, but the economy is based on a free-marked economy with a a lot fewer regulations and a much less hassling from bureaucrats than there is in the US.

    So if Bernie wants a socialist paradise theres no need to look to Denmark or Sweden. He's already living in one.

    Here in Scandinavia it's the influx of Muslims and their offspring that's the challenge, not capitalism.
