On Bernie Sanders’ kind of socialism

A Fox News poll reported that Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America. A lot of media is reporting that as ” a socialist is the most popular politician in America.”

Don’t get me wrong; socialism likes to be inclusive. But Sanders shares about as much with socialism as the ones who defend Stalin & Mao’s crimes or the ones who defend Assad’s crimes. There’s a profound misunderstanding there of what socialism is all about.

When we talk inclusive we do not mean people who talk a good game but walk another. Supporting war, occupation, colonialism, apartheid, mass murder, & persecution of any one for any reason is no part of our inclusion.
