The "Bernie Bros" narrative isn't actually about Bernie, or Bros

You've all heard it. Especially AOC's revealing collaboration in enabling the Bernie Bros narrative. They're such meanies! Those terrible Bernie Bros. You all know $Hillary invented the narrative. You think you know pretty much everything there is about the narrative.

But like John Snow, you know nothing. The Bernie Bros narrative isn't about Bernie and it's not even about those mythological "Bros".

It's about violence.

Why Are Bernie Bros So Violent?
...Re-education camps for Republicans! Bring back the guillotine! Let’s have a revolution!

How many pro-violence Bernie Bros are out there? I don’t know, but I have a feeling we are going to hear from a few more.

Not just the threat of violence

The staffer also said, “If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC, f**king Milwaukee will burn.”

But actual violence.

Scalise, a Louisiana Republican, fired back, referring to his own personal experience with a Bernie Bro that left him with a severe bullet wound in his hip. “I can think of an example,” he said.

More specifically, it's about the only thing the elites fear. Not protests (which they ignore), not political revolution (Which they have proven for 60 years they can infiltrate and destroy), not Bernie's socialism (Which they gladly accept when it comes to them). They fear violence. A slave uprising. A revolution.

They fear that we will violently overthrow their usurpation of our Democracy.

You think these kids were upset back in 2016 on reading the emails and finding out they were rigging it for The Witch? Imagine how upset they’re going to be when the DNC doesn’t even bother all that much to hide how they are throwing it to Warren this time.

And this time? Bernie’s campaign is chock full of Antifa types that O’Keefe & his undercover journalists had no trouble at all getting to share their violent plans if Bernie gets robbed again.

Well guess what? BERNIE IS GETTING ROBBED AGAIN. And they aren’t even going to hide it this time around.

So, we’re going to find out if the kids in these videos are just fantasizing and talking crap or if they really do intend to riot and burn and break stuff.

So they're preemptively attacking the uprising that they could see coming four years ago. The uprising that has the only chance of actually accomplishing anything. Which is why these thieves fear it and why the usurpers of our democracy have created this narrative. They fear a free America. They should. 80 Million U.S. guns can't be wrong.

The main fear of the ruling class is not the devastating health consequences of the coronavirus, but the growth of social protests, to which they will respond with violence and repression. The eruption of strikes and walkouts by workers in Italy, protesting the fact that they are being forced to work amidst the pandemic, is only the beginning of the response of the working class.

Bernie Or Vest.

The people should not fear their government. The government should fear the people.

“Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.

How did this happen? Who’s to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn’t be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense.”

IF you haven't watched this movie yet you're in for a treat. The book is just as good and the movie follows it almost exactly. I have watched and listened to it numerous times and it's great each time.

is that there can be the appearance of "mobs of Bernie Bros" on the internet because there are in fact very very large numbers of Bernie supporters out there. Especially in online platforms which skew younger. So yes, if you go to any digital platform you are going to see massive amounts of Bernie support.
And I personally think this is the primary reason the "Bernie Bro" narrative was started. To inoculate the masses so they wouldn't recognize how popular Bernie actually is.

And secondly, some of the statements they will make towards you might seem mean and rather biting. But that's because you may have been living in a bubble where you didn't realize that your opposition to M4A was literally leaving tens of thousands to die. And your opposition to GND means you are enabling killing our planet. Oh, my gawd, did those comments seem mean? Well, if you are interacting with someone who would like tens of thousands of people not to die needlessly, or someone who doesn't want our planet to become unlivable, they don't seem mean at all. And just like if you are a pro choice person and a pro lifer calls you a baby killer, you let that roll right off your back. That is a meaningless insult. But maybe when a Bernie supporter calls you a planet killer it doesn't roll off your back because you know there is some truth to it. And when you know an attack is right, and it represents justice, then it stings.

@edg But you knew that already. Smile

The Gesta Normannorum Ducum by William of Jumièges has become the principal work of Norman historical writings, one of many written to glorify the Norman conquest of England.

Actually, I didn't know it was Green New Deal until I Googled GND. The Green New Deal definition is in the Urban Dictionary listing lower on the page than Gesta Normannorum Ducum, which is highlighted in the featured snippets box.

if it was we'd all be getting a UBI so that we could afford all the stuff that robots can make cheaper and faster. It's about power, about dominance, about evil. They don't let us have health care because they wouldn't have the joy of watching us die. They won't let us have Bernie because they want us to know that they won't let us have him. They would rather we didn't outright revolt because of two reasons: first, shooting and bombing us is like masturbation - a rush, but then it's gone, and you have no one to abuse, (that's why we have war afeter war killing a few million at a time instead of a big war - that would kill billions, and then what?) and second, your toy soldiers might not be toys and it'll be you that is shot.
