Normal person: Liz Cheney says 2+2=4, and on this particular subject, I agree with her.

If you're mad about Bernie Tweeting this, you're a dumbshiat.
 
2021-05-06 2:37:07 PM  
There's no praise in that statement.  It's just an acknowledgement of reality.

2021-05-06 2:38:58 PM  
How is that 'praise' exactly?
 
2021-05-06 2:39:12 PM  
Bernie is actually playing several dimensions of chess.  The dimension you choose determines the true meaning.

Bernie Sanders, a good man with useful ideas.
Berine Bros. Useless.

Bernie is correct to call it a cult because that is exactly what it is.

Cheney is not wrong to call the truth the truth but she is still an asshole in pretty much every other respect.

Credit due.

I don't know of any Bernie Sanders supporters who would view this statement as praising any of Cheney's unsavory positions, but I've come across a lot of FARKers who'd insist to me that they would

All Liz Chaney did was state the obvious.  All Bernie did is acknowledge that Liz stated the obvious.

Original: Original Tweet:

SenSanders: Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) will likely be voted off the House Republican Leadership. Her crime: acknowledging the reality that Trump lost the election. The Republican Party is no longer a "conservative" party. It is an anti-democratic cult pushing the Big Lie and conspiracy theories.


I'm going to dread asking this, but where is this so-called "bropocalypse" from Sanders twisting the knife in Cheney, and mocking the GQP?

Bernie haters: Fine with fascism if it means Stigginit to the poors; more entrenched in personality cults than anyone they've accused of the same thing; quick to rattle off a few names that sound Jewish if they're accused of antisemitism and have already cited Netanyahu

Hasn't Fark been fawning over Liz Cheney for the past week, just like it does for Romney and The Lincoln Project and any other one of Yesterday's Republicans whenever they show an iota of non-dogmatic thinking? Why would it suddenly be bad if Bernie states a truth about her?

The goalposts and double standards are ridiculous.

And I remember a Fark poster unironically defending it.

"Why is it wrong for someone to give a young person fresh in the workforce career advice??!" like the whole thing wasn't blatant grooming.

Sanders is clearly taking advantage of a GOP meltdown, not endorsing Cheney.

His point wasn't even that he agrees with her. His point was that the GOP has become a dangerous cult that is intolerant of acknowledging facts.

And yet still, the pile on.

Liz Cheney getting stripped is not an image I wanted in my head. It's all for the best that the Republican Terrorist Organization are kicking out anyone who is still not completely fuqed in the head. The Horrible People Party.

from the replies, first in line:

"@Dreamweasel
Jan 10Welcome to life in 2021, where the lion's share of what passes for political discourse consists of Explaining Extremely Obvious Things to People Who Refuse to Listen"Clearly dreamweasle has no clue about their own human history. It's not 2021, that's just how it has always been. And anyone that imaged we somehow were better in the past at the same time we were being slavers or jim crow law makers, is not applying particularly good critical thinking to the situation.Politics is at it's very core quite simplistically able to be defined as:the process by which reasonable and unreasonable people attempt to coexist peacefully.And of course from everyone's POV they are undoubtedly the reasonable ones in that process. ;)

"I think when one has been angry for a very long time, one gets used to it. And it becomes comfortable, like old leather. And, finally, it becomes so familiar that one can't ever remember feeling any other way."

Sure is interesting how every Bernie-Basher and anti-progressive always insists that they *totally* backed Bernie in 2016 and/or 2020.

Or turned the other way when a gay progressive was smeared with every homophobic trope in the book by a moderate incumbent.

He said, "Her crime: acknowledging the reality that Trump lost the election."

In that, he agrees with her, at least tacitly. But, yes, his larger point was directed at the GOP.

The fact that some on the far left are pillorying him for it, is utterly nonsensical and self-defeating.
