I have spent the last 24 hours or so ‘arguing’ with Bernie Bros. I say argue because very few if any of his supporters actually do more than just yell when you point out Bernie’s hypocrisy about vilifying the rich. And boy howdy, pointing out how he’s changed his rhetoric from going after millionaires to going after billionaires since he himself became a millionaire will really rile them up.

Which is what I did.

Yeah yeah yeah, I rile a lot of people up (it’s sort of what I do) but this one really wasn’t all my fault … this time. It all started with an AOC tweet:

YEAH! THOSE EVIL BILLIONAIRES!

But what about the evil millionaires? Are they ok now?

I asked …

And just guess how this went over with her followers …

Oooh, he called me numbnuts and accused me of mental gymnastics … while he defends Bernie for being an evil 1%r. This is hilarious.

They always do this, especially when they can’t debate the issue at hand. I suppose part of it has to do with the fact that I’m a woman (not playing the sexist card, just from personal experience) and they think I’m younger … God love ’em.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Holy crap.

It’s OK for Bernie to be a millionaire because he pays his taxes.

I told you guys, this is the best con I’ve seen in a long time. They are literally defending an evil rich guy who tells them evil rich guys like him are the problem. He’s convinced them it’s ok for HIM to be rich, just not anyone else.

Dude is a socialist through and through.

Honestly, I’m not sure if they actually missed the point about Bernie changing his rhetoric to suit his own earnings or if they were being deliberately obtuse. If Bernie magically became a billionaire he’d start attacking trillionaires … the amount doesn’t matter. What matters is the idea of wealth not being ok, unless it’s his.

I just sit back and laugh at these tweets.

I hope you do too.
