Bernie Sanders has turned his inauguration meme into a sweatshirt for charity. The “Chairman Sanders Crewneck”, named to honor Sanders new position as the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, is on sale now for $45 with 100% of the proceeds going to Meals on Wheels Vermont.
It's 100% organic cotton fleece, made in the USA, Union printed, and also features the coat Bernie wore in the famous "I am once again asking..." meme.
This is the most on-brand thing ever, and I expected nothing less. What a legend!

IT IS NOT THAT HARD TO UNDERSTAND. IT IS ABOUT A CRYSTAL CLEAR AGENDA: TO DELETE, TO ERASE, TO DEMOLISH THE WESTERN IDEA OF AMERICA, AN OPEN SOCIETY, IMPERFECT BUT MORE PERFECT THAN ANY OTHER THAN EVER EXISTED. AN IDEA OF A NATION BUILDED BY THE PEOPLE WITH A DYNAMIC BALANCE OF RIGHTS AND DUTIES, HAVING THE HUMAN BEING AS THE MAIN ACTOR OF HIS OWN DESTINY.
THE ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE (A BUNCH OF POWER HUNGRY-GREEDY ELITE CORPORATIONS AND THEIR CORRUPTED PUPPET￼S POLITICIANS) HAS BEEN WORKING FOR DECADES WEAPONIZING THEIR TOOLBOX OF POPULATION CONTROL. IT IS NOT ABOUT IDEOLOGY. THEY WANT A DIFFERENT COUNTRY. THEY HATE AMERICA BECAUSE THE IDEA OF A COUNTRY BASED IN THE IDEA OF THE GOVERNMENT BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE IS HOSTILE TO THEIR AMBITION OF TOTAL GLOBAL POWER.
14.5 million illegal aliens are living in America at a net cost to taxpayers of nearly $134 billion

I am only part of the way through reading J. Sakai’s Settlers: The Mythology of the White Proletariat and honestly it is the most complete Marxist analysis of American history I’ve ever seen.
For example: Have you ever thrown your hands up in frustration at the fact that, as the old saw has it, American workers do not see themselves as an exploited class but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires? How is it that a proletariat whose seeds were often composed of the most advanced proletarians in Europe forced to flee their homelands for their radical Marxism has become the least advanced in the world?
Turns out there’s a reason for that. In the early days of the Republic, when its wealth mainly came from looting Indian nations and the labor of Black slaves, it was entirely possible, and indeed probable, for a White worker to save up enough money to sooner or later buy a farmstead of their own to be the independent little lord of--in short, the reason we see ourselves as “temporarily embarrassed millionaires” is that there was a time in American history when that was true and when class, in the Marxist sense, didn’t exist. (If you were White, at any rate.)
Indeed, this frequent drain on the body of White labor conspired to keep (White) wages up even as the plentiful loot of empire conspired to keep commodity prices low--in other words, for perhaps the only time in human history, the market was working exactly as Capitalists have always claimed it does, and all it took was industrial-scale genocide and slavery along with a perpetual state of war to accomplish. And that’s the high White America has been chasing ever since, even as the drug slowly loses its effectiveness over time.
No wonder it’s so fucking difficult to make us see sense on this issue. God damn.
