We have been critical of Sanders and his ideas of ‘Our Revolution’ and ‘socialism’ and the way they coopt the real meaning of socialism. We have also hedged on the grounds that the terms may sow the seeds of a real socialist transformation. But neither Sanders nor AOC speak of revolutionary transformation or the expropriation of capital and the result can only end in disappointment. Neither of these two figures can comment on the attempt by Venezuela to create socialism and this kind of failure shows up the phony character of their abuse of the term ‘socialism’. These two will betray you in a minute for their own game which will have to murder real socialists. Once Sanders is done noone will ever take real socialism seriously again. Is Sanders working for the CIA?
It’s likely not a coincidence that rise in popularity across all Americans came as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez became two of the most prominent politicians in the U.S.
