Bernie Sanders Explains Why “Socialist” Isn’t a Dirty Word – Late Night with Seth Meyers

Comment from the YouTube page:

As a Canadian, he didn’t say ANYTHING scary. I’m a left libertarian, and maybe I disagree with him on a few things, but one thing I rail against are right wingers who scream about “socialism” (for the poor) while they are huge champions of socialism for the rich, which has been America’s system for years (NOT a free market). So I guess Americans are cool with socialism for the rich (Reaganomics), but if it helps some poor or disabled person survive and be in good health so they can go and find work? Hells no! Unbelievable.

And from the NYT comment section @ Hillary Clinton’s Team Is Wary as Bernie Sanders Finds Footing in Iowa

Wake up America ! Unlike the vast majority of politicians on both the right and the left who have sold their souls to Wall Street and the 1%, Bernie Sanders has always cared about his constituents. If this is what is meant by “Socialism” then so be it. Bernie is a genuine “mensch” which is precisely what we need to get rid of the corrupt banksters and Wall Street hucksters who have taken us down a dark and destructive path to plutocracy where only the very wealthy matter.
