A point for Bernie is hes managed to get his kooky followers to forget that he owns three homes, gets caught flying first class all the time, and has become a millionaire since taking office (how??).

Maybe his supporters should be catalgoued for a future study on how the education system has failed informing on hypocrisy.

One point about Bernie. Some of his policy positions have become,or moved closer to being, mainstream. The foremost example of that being what is now being called Medicare-for-all.  All of the Dem presidential candidates are in favor of that — at least as an option (not sure about Bloomberg). All seemingly want us to get to that at some point. I do not believe we would even be at the point we are now on that incredibly important issue if it had not been for Bernie’s 2016 campaign, the ensuing years, and his 2020 campaign.

the party is being assaulted from the left (sanders) and the right (bloomberg)

probably unlikely that either will get elected, but they will influence the outcome

Bloomberg’s Billions: How the Candidate Built an Empire of Influence
In interviews with The Times, no one described being threatened or coerced by Mr. Bloomberg or his money. But many said his wealth was an inescapable consideration — a gravitational force powerful enough to make coercion unnecessary.

“They aren’t going to criticize him in his 2020 run because they don’t want to jeopardize receiving financial support from him in the future,” said Paul S. Ryan, vice president of policy and litigation at the good-government group Common Cause.

That chilling effect was apparent in 2015 to researchers at the Center for American Progress, a liberal policy group, when they turned in a report on anti-Muslim bias in the United States. Their draft included a chapter of more than 4,000 words about New York City police surveillance of Muslim communities; Mr. Bloomberg was mentioned by name eight times in the chapter, which was reviewed by The Times.

When the report was published a few weeks later, the chapter was gone. So was any mention of Mr. Bloomberg’s name.

Yasmine Taeb, an author of the report, said in an interview that the authors had been instructed to make drastic revisions or remove the chapter, and opted to do the latter rather than “whitewash the N.Y.P.D.’s wrongdoings.” She said she found it “disconcerting” to be asked to remove the chapter “because of how it was going to be perceived by Mayor Bloomberg.”

Other officials at the center disputed that account, arguing that there had been substantive reasons to revise or remove a section on police surveillance in New York from a report commissioned to examine right-wing groups targeting Muslims with explicit bigotry and conspiracy theories.

“Any and all edits to this report were done solely based on editorial and policy considerations,” said a spokeswoman, Daniella Gibbs Léger. The center, she added, had produced other content addressing policing in New York, including a “critical, hard-hitting video” on department policies under Mr. Bloomberg. A spokesman for Mr. Bloomberg said his team was unaware of any dispute at the think tank.

But at least one senior official wrote at the time that there would be a “strong reaction from Bloomberg world if we release the report as written,” according to an email reviewed by The Times. And three people with direct knowledge of the situation said Mr. Bloomberg was a factor.

Alienating him might not have been a cost-free proposition. When the report came out, he had already given the organization three grants worth nearly $1.5 million, and in 2017 he contributed $400,000 more, according to Ms. Léger and the center’s limited public disclosure of its donors.

Pundits Look to Bloomberg as Their Anti-Sanders Savior
Coming out of the first two Democratic primary states, with Bernie Sanders leading in votes and Pete Buttigieg leading in delegates, who is “starting to dominate the national political debate like no one in the past five years other than President Donald Trump”?

According to NBC‘s Jonathan Allen (2/12/20), that’s former New York City mayor, erstwhile Republican, and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who has won no national delegates and is currently polling in third place at about 14%. But inconvenient data never stopped anxious members of the media from inflating their preferred candidates’ standing. (...)

Are left-wing Americans proposing violent political change?   This is not what Bernie Sanders wants but do his supporters want violent revolution?

And if so, how dead Americans would represent an acceptable cost of 'progress'?  
 

More than the total of School Shootings since 2016?  

Distinctly remember Trumpy discussing how he has all the 'tough' guys on HIS side.

Unfortunately, his attacks on Generals, the Military, those who have served in the highest sense, as opposed to service-dodging bone spurs, have generally decided lil mango bawls is full of it. Matt Dillion wanna-be's take heed. The real warriors aren't having it.

Well, there is a hint in the title right after those two words.
 
The title/headline misrepresents what Buttigieg actually said; pretty much a straw-man argument.
