Bernie Sanders Humor

Yesterday’s column dealt with the very grim topic of Crazy Bernie’s radical statism.

Today, we’re going to offset that grim topic with some gallows humor (the term used to describe making jokes when dealing bad news).

Or maybe it should be gulag humor based on our first item.

Since gun control is a favored policy of homicidal and genocidal dictators, Stalin is giving wise advice.

Next we have a kid’s social experiment.

My children are all out of the house, so no risk of this experiment at my home. Besides, I raised them with sensible values.

Since the Soviet Union (thankfully) no longer exists, this next image shows us how Bernie may want to create a new version.

I’ve saved the best for last.

Sort of reminds me of this amusing contrast.

Recalling the wisdom of Adam Smith, I don’t think Bernie could ruin the economy that quickly.

Though it wouldn’t be for lack of trying.

If you enjoy Bernie-themed humor, I have many other offerings, starting with thisthis, and this.
