Gilbertson: I Keep Thinking Bernie Sanders Supporters are all Mildly Retarded.
I can’t help it.
Anyone who doesn’t see that Bernie Sanders’ proposed policies are impossible MUST be a bit slow. I don’t mean to make fun of the mentally disabled, and apologize if anyone is offended by my way of expressing this.

But express it, I must.
Bernie Sanders fits the definition of insanity. People talk about how “honest” and “authentic” is Bernie Sanders. Of course he is, he absolutely positively believes in something that is pure fantasy – he rejects all challenges to his beliefs, he fabricates excuses where his theories fail – his world is not your world.
This is the equivalent of believing the Earth is flat, even after having seen the satellite images showing a nice curved horizon with the Sun poking up. There is no other way to explain how a man who was elected to the U.S. Senate cannot do enough mathematics to know that his policies will bankrupt the country. Perhaps it is more accurate to say that he REFUSES to do the math – because he is insane.
Everyone with common sense knows that socialism doesn’t work. It has been tried in a great many places, most recently Venezuela, all ending in disaster. The more sophisticated of us know that socialism is a negative feedback loop, the more you put into social support, the less the motivation to produce. And we who are older watched the Soviet Union attempt to conquer enough resources to stay afloat, only to eventually collapse under its own weight.
Let’s go back to the analogy that Sanders believes the Earth is flat. The satellite images of the Earth are open to everyone, so who is going to follow Bernie?
See what I mean? Anyone who is not able to see the simplicity of the error MUST be (at least) mildly retarded.
And just like the flat-Earthers from hundreds of years ago, Bernie is charging all kinds of conspiracies against his plan for socialism, all of the reasons it hasn’t worked before, all of the enemies of socialism, and the dismissal and claims of falsification of data supporting the opposite of socialism.
Followers of Bernie have to be able to ignore the success of free enterprise that permeates EVERYTHING around them. They have to ignore all of world history showing the failures of socialism. They have to gather ammunition to fight the overwhelming evidence that continually bombards them every second of every day just to keep faith with a man who is “authentic” and “honest” and, without a doubt, insane.
I cannot envision a normal person who lives in the real world, reads an occasional newspaper and takes interest in politics, and still is unable to see the impossibility of Bernie’s plans. And yet, I see seemingly intelligent. people supporting him who are actually convinced (or in some cases pretending?) that his policies are reasonable.
And we see Democrat Party leadership accepting it all.
And we see the media treating him like he makes sense.
Again, I can’t help it. I feel sorry for these people, I feel bad for them. I’ve tried to speak to a few, they will not let go of their psychosis, facts do not penetrate. They are, at minimum, mildly retarded.
I just hope there are not more of them than there are of us.
