Leftist Hillary Clinton’s main “Democrat” presidential opponent, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, is an avowed socialist.
Keeping in mind that the great Ayn Rand defined socialism as:
Socialism is the doctrine that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that his life and his work do not belong tohim, but belong to society, that the only justification of his existence is his service to society, and that society may dispose of him in any way it pleases for the sake of whatever it deems to be its own tribal, collective good.
The essential characteristic of socialism is the denial of individual property rights; under socialism, the right to property (which is the right of use and disposal) is vested in “society as a whole,” i.e., in the collective, with production and distribution controlled by the state, i.e., by the government.
Socialism may be established by force, as in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics—or by vote, as in Nazi (National Socialist) Germany. The degree of socialization may be total, as in Russia—or partial, as in England. Theoretically, the differences are superficial; practically, they are only a matter of time. The basic principle, in all cases, is the same.
So considering there’s not much more anti-rights, anti-freedom and anti-American than socialism, one would think that Hillary Clinton would use a question regarding socialism to separate herself from wild-eyed 74-year-old socialist Bernie “The Red” Sanders, who has been soaring in recent polls, and has been drawing crowds many multiples the size of Clinton’s on the campaign trail.
But when a local Colorado news reporter, Brandon Rittiman, with 9 News in Colorado (ABC affiliate) asked Hillary Clinton if there is “anything wrong with Democratic socialism,” where people vote away their own rights without the added encouragement of having a gun pointed to their collective heads by a socialist tyrant like Hitler, Lenin or Stalin, Clinton punted.
“Well, I’m a progressive Democrat so I’m not going to comment on labels other people apply to themselves,” she answered the reporter.
The corrupt, lying Clinton, bogged down by a plethora of scandals, including Benghazi and EmailGate, ultimately said that she would not describe herself using the “Democratic socialist” label, as her nearest competitor, Bernie Sanders has. However, Clinton failed to explain to the viewers the difference between herself and socialist Sanders.
Hillary Clinton isn’t the only top Democrat who cannot tell the difference between a Democrat and a socialist. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has repeatedly stumbled and bumbled when presented with the question, unable and unwilling to give a straight answer.
