Why Won’t Bernie Sanders Take “Socialist” As An Insult?


>>Stephen: YOU ARE A LIBERAL AND YOU ARE A
SOCIALIST, AND PEOPLE CALL YOU A LIBERAL AND A SOCIALIST. WHY WILL YOU NOT ACCEPT THOSE
TWO TERMS AS THE INSULTS THEY’RE MEANT TO BE? ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )>>I PREFER THE TERM, ACTUALLY,
TO BE A PROGRESSIVE. AND I WILL TELL YOU WHY. WHEN YOU LOOK AT COUNTRIES IN
SCANDINAVIA –>>AGAIN, HERE WE GO.>>HERE WE GO, ALL RIGHT.>>Stephen: DENMARK?>>DENMARK. IN DENMARK, EVERYBODY HAS HEALTH
CARE AS A RIGHT, AND THEIR SYSTEM IS HIGH QUALITY AND MORE
COST EFFECTIVE THAN OUR SYSTEM. IN DENMARK, AT A TIME IN AMERICA
WHERE PEOPLE CAN’T AFFORD TO SEND THEIR KIDS TO COLLEGE,
PEOPLE GO AND GET A HIGHER EDUCATION, GO TO COLLEGE FOR
FREE. THEY HAVE A VERY STRONG CHILD
CARE SYSTEM FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS, WAGES ARE HIGHER. SO WHAT YOU HAVE IS A SOCIETY
WHERE GOVERNMENT, AS I BELIEVE IT SHOULD IN THIS COUNTRY,
RADICAL IDEA, THOUGH IT MAY BE, SHOULD ACTUALLY REPRESENT
WORKING PEOPLE AND THE MIDDLE CLASS RATHER THAN LARGE CAMPAIGN
DONORS. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: WELL, IF YOU CAN STICK AROUND, IF YOU CAN STICK
AROUND FOR ONE SECOND, WE’VE GOT TO GET SOME MESSAGES RIGHT NOW
FROM GIANT CORPORATIONS TO PAY OUR BILLS. AND WE’LL COME BACK AND FIND OUT
WHY THEY’RE THE BAD GUYS FROM BERNIE SANDERS.

  1. Hey, if Scandinavia and Denmark are doing soooooooooo well. Why don't we send you guys and the illegal immigrants there. Then everyone will be happy. Right?

  2. http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv/bernie-sanders-interrupts-monologue-late-show-article-1.2527727, this is the longer interview

  3. When will Sanders stop talking about Europe and Canada and focus on the reasons why America is as "corrupt" as he puts it

  4. bernie sanders is like the cool grandpa you wished you had. he is like a straight talking donald trump, but one who actually makes sense.

  5. i live in denmark, and i can just tell bernie sanders that he's wrong if he thinks the system over here is better.
    here it doesn't matter if your a doctor or a carpenter, they both make almost the same amount of money, because the more you earn the higher the taxes.
    i know people that pay 60% taxes, i myself pay 40%. its terrible.

  6. The one criticism I would offer Bernie re socialism is that the European model is based on a populous who believes in helping out their fellow citizens for the betterment of the entire nation. America is not that country. Americans are largely interested in themselves as individuals and "getting theirs". America today isn't yet evolved enough to see the big picture. Hence it's perhaps premature to expect them 1. to support and 2. to not exploit such systems.

  7. in romania we all have healthcare also, the thing is , medics are so poorly payed, u are dying in hospitals even if u go in healthy, u go out sick.

    that s why communism will never work.

    don t be stupid americans, socialims , communism is a dead end.

  8. for free?….. FOR FREE?????!!!!! THIS PUNK KNOWS NOTHING OF DENMARK, HE DOESN'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT OUR SYSTEM…BITCH I GET PAYED TO GO TO SCHOOL >:V

  9. To start off Denmark is the highest taxed nation in the world, free college and free education might not sound as good as you think when the dollar is taxed an average of 80 percent. The minimum income tax in Denmark is 40 percent ( here being about 30 for someone earning over a million dollar salary.) When you come to think about having things free, free isn't as good as it sounds when your money is being stripped away by this great "socialist" idea.

  10. Vote Bernie yawl. He's the only guy level headed and compassionate enough for the white house. He's the only candidate attacking the establishment at the source. He's the only candidate that truly cares about the working class because he talks about it as much as he does and makes a point to speak on it. He's the only candidate talkin' about better energy possibilities for our economy and environment. All the media and bull shit you hear from people saying "He's a communist or a socialist" is convoluted dribble from people who either don't listen or don't know. He's a progressive and unless you want to progress with the rest of us than you are doomed to repeat your same mistakes.

  11. I don't think Scandinavian model applies to the US. Scandivanian countries have far smaller populations with more economic output. They can afford being socialist. US can't, unless it diverts from large military spending. Being a superpower and the world's policeman is costly.

  12. Bernie Sanders is not a good candidate if he is elected he will make america bad and if he is the nominee don't vote for him vote for the republican nominee

  13. Nothing is free. The goverment has no money of its own, unless they are printing it. The people are all paying for the "free" education, "free" healthcare, "free" whatever and most of the time it it's less effective and costs us (the countries) more in the long run. It's also a door to corruption and abuse.

  14. BURNYtheJEW, the 'gov't' should pay for it…BURNTHEJEW, you fucking MORON, the 'gov't' pays for NOTHING. The American taxpayers pay for EVERYTHING, even the insane, religious wars in the MIDDLE EAST, that the JEW lobby AIPAC, bribes 'our' politicians to betray the American people, to do what's best for israel and FUCK the American people that the 'god' the JEW invented, didn't choose or give land to.
    The answer to America and the WORLD's problem is, as it always will be, HOLOCAUST. But this time, make them ALL EXTINCT.
    Joe Magnets

  15. its funny because almost all of us who use the internet know the only two candidates that arnt puppets are Sanders and Trump.. Media can attack all they want.. We arnt stupid..

  16. What a jerk, Sanders is talking about something very seriously, and he insists and making jokes about the merchandise, making fun with a very serious old man who deserves more respect ! I'll never watch a second from his videos again! Don't be the audience for stupid people!

  17. What a jerk, Sanders is talking about something very seriously, and he insists and making jokes about the merchandise, making fun with a very serious old man who deserves more respect ! I'll never watch a second from his videos again! Don't be the audience for stupid people!

  18. Sanders isn´t a socialist 😀 for me as a german his views aren´t any more radical than the program of the german conservative party CDU.

  19. Yes he's right, Scandinavian countries are the Gold standard. Americans, vote wisely. Vote for Bernie Sanders.

  20. Bernie is a communist. He doesn't like it to be called that, but he is. Bernie will tax us to death and will kill small business. Don't vote for this senile old goat.

  21. Guess what Bernie and all of your Bernie supporters, this isn't Europe. This is the United States, competitive capitalism has made America the greatest and strongest country in the world today. Trying to change that is 100% against the constitution and against the Traditional American Values. If you want a big government who controls you, get the hell out of the US and move to Europe.

  22. I like Sanders, but Sanders goals will most likely never get accomplished. Too good to be true currently in America

  23. Bernie doesn't bother to tell anyone that Denmark's personal income tax rates are as high as 58.5%. So they get NOTHING for free; everyone is paying for all of that stuff whether they use it or not. Socialism has failed repeatedly yet nobody learns from history.
    OH, and their sales tax rate is 25%!!!!!
    And the Danish people are paying the banks interest on the money in their 'savings' accounts with a negative .65% interest rate.
    Go socialism. rah rah rah

  24. What Bernie is saying that these "Giant corporations" are doing wrong by avoiding paying taxes and bribing campaigns to support their interests while ignoring the needs of the people. Is it Unfair for Bernie to ask of rich people to obey the law just like anybody else and do what is good for the country just like anybody else.

  25. There is no magic pill with social democratic countries in Northern Europe. There are huge differences in both income and wealth also here. Some of the differences are inherited, through differences previous in history.

  26. The problem that Bernie left out is that European countries are being swarmed by extraeuropean leeches, and are now suffering culture clash and are on the brink of a continent wide civil war, because they didn't make it clear that those social programs are for their citizens and not the whole world. Their systems are not sustainable as is… They should have built a wall. Learn from their mistakes.

  27. He believes that America is great, it just is being led by rich donors who pay the politicians to lie to you and send their jobs overseas to become cheap sweatshop labor.
    He believes as a country we are strong and smart enough to handle all people with value by supporting healthcare and education.
    We deserve better.
    We pay our taxes, we pay them.
    Our living fees are their wages.
    WE are THEIR BOSSES.
    The choice is ours, it is okay if you don't agree or won't vote for Sanders,
    BUT do not disregard him because he is being called a "socialist".
    Others can do it, WE THE PEOPLE can do it too.

    Thank you for reading this

  28. What people dont understand is that nothing is ever "free". Somebody HAS to pay for it. Thats means higher taxes for EVERYONE. Especially the rich. What happens when rich people get taxed too much? They leave and take their business elsewhere. Denmark is one of the highest taxed counties in Europe. It is literally frowned upon in Denmark to be too successful or too wealthy. Look this up. There are little to no rich people in Denmark because they are taxed to much and hated by everyone else. You probably dont see a problem with this, wel thats because youre not rich. But lets say one day you make it, you work your butt off and make your dream of being rich come true. Now Bernie is president though and taxing half or more of your fortune. Are you going still going to stay in America? Didnt think so. Bernie supporters dont understand simple economics and just lose their mind at the word free without realizing that nothing is ever free.

  29. scandinavian countries – the biggest sh*tholes in the world, where raping is a human right.

    How is that a good example?

  30. Bernie Sanders will flood your country with Mexicans and Muslims then tax the shit out of you to pay for all of their healthcare and liberal arts degrees.

  31. This is the first time I've seen Bernie Sanders speak. If you put arm patches on his suit, he would look like a professor in some small liberal arts college.

  32. I know I'm in hostile territory right now so i'll tread lightly lol. I'm a moderate Republican and yes I support Trump. I don't agree with anything Mr. Sanders says, but I love what he stands for. It's confusing to me too trust me. I'll attempt to explain this.
     He doesn't pretend to be anything he isn't, he's what I like to refer to as "the real deal." Not many people are like that and it's not a common trait for Republicans or Democrats. He's not a liar or a snake oil salesman like most politicians, Bernie is doing what he feels is right for the people. I firmly believe Socialism and other hard left stances are ideological enemies of our Western Democracy and would lead to our ruin, but Bernie commands my respect.

  33. This guy is so dangerous towards America if this guy ever got elected president and got his way America would be destroyed

  34. a year on, I want to thank you ever so much for the part you played in pushing HRC and thereby getting Trump elected. but you're set for life, so I'm sure you've got more than enough resources to soothe your angst.

  35. It's true. You only have to pay a small entrance fee to study at a Scandinavian college, and the entrance fee is usually just something like 1200 kroner, which is around 150 dollars, and you can apply for a student loan in order to pay for living costs while your studying.

  36. Because Americans are brainwashed into thinking it's an insult when it isn't?
    Talk about being behind the rest of the world lmfao.

  37. Hey look Libs, the Socialist model of Nirvana Bernie Sanders wants for America is taking place right now down in Venezuela. ha ha ha
    Bernie is a fraud and 1%'er who owns three (3) homes worth $Millions and stays in 5-star Hotels when he's on the road .. and all the while he prescribes a KOA Campground lifestyle for you loyal sheeple ! haa ha ha ha … Tools ,,, Fools !

  38. Sanders you not telling the people anout everything about the government pays for everything in other countries. The regulations on how to get in college and what you have to take. In other words the government control you what classes to take and the testing to get in. Good luck young people about college because it not like america you have no freedom with government control.

  39. Sanders you not telling the people anout everything about the government pays for everything in other countries. The regulations on how to get in college and what you have to take. In other words the government control you what classes to take and the testing to get in. Good luck young people about college because it not like america you have no freedom with government control.

  40. It’s never FREE. it’s just paying the cost out of your cost of living without ever knowing the price. If FREE hamburgers means giving up YouTube and Twitter, or Monday Night Football, But Those Things never existed because the money for them is spent on hamburgers, your FREE socialist hamburgers come at the cost of those potential outputs. Socialists are always IGNORANT of the lines of production they destroy. And they never know if the cost is too high.

  41. I live in Norway and I did some math and I don't know how much you American's pay, but for 6 semesters of university I paid 600 dollars in total.

  42. Both Maxine Waters and Elizabeth Warren have publicly stated they are free market capitalist. The Florida Democrats overwhelmingly voted against Florida Republican Senate bill 7026 which was the Gun control legislation sponsored and passed by the Republican party of Florida. Thus, Senator Sanders is not the voice of the Democratic party. Matter of fact, Senator Sanders is far left of socialism. Another fact, Senator Sanders was an independent until the last election. He has been an independent his entire life except for the 1960's when he was working with Alan Dulles the former CIA director in the 1960's . Since when did he become the voice of the Democratic party. He joined the Democratic party as an agent of negative influence. Senator Sanders is a Jew, and, he does not want anyone to know that. I think what we need to be asking is ,did Sanders turn enough Democrats away with his communist rhetoric to give the election to Trump? The fact is, Senator Sanders was in Arkansas in the 1960's working to destroy the Democratic party. He is trying to destroy the Democratic party just like he did in the 1960's.

  43. i wonder why you don't get to hear more of what bernie has to say. could it be due to the fact that this shitty show is paid and run by large corporations??? aka propaganda of the capitalists

  44. Well that why we have the ACT and SAT which helps low income students be able to gain scholarships if they do t study why should they deserve the government to pay for them to go for college what if they take this government money for college and drop out then pocket it for themselves

  45. I love how he will piggyback on capitalism that just shows how smart he is, he wouldn't try this using Venezuela go Bernie!!!

  46. When we get free school and healthcare I hope the government chooses what we eat and study,that way the free healthcare and school makes sense.You never want people eating bacon,cake,to much sugar or drinking alcohol or smoking that could screw up the healthcare. You never would want an over abundance of French poetry majors or entertainment lawyers,Bernie must explain this deeply so everyone will get onboard. Go Bern dog!!!!

  47. Bernie needs to definitely stop the crazy talk on the right that volcanoes and humans have been farting for billions of years,and that the poles do a gradual cyclical shift, he needs to stomp that s**t out

  48. Bernie needs to quickly pass a law banning millionaires and billionaires from leaving the country and flood the southern border with latinos for cheap labor,that will ease the transition hiccups,he can make cuts to the Latin population later after they've become a huge burden to healthcare go Bernie

  49. Denmark. Not a constitutional republic, less population than new York city alone. Doesn't have 50 independent democracies making up over 300 million people each with distinct and separate constitutions. Sound very nice but really not comparable. Perhaps Bernie should just move to Denmark rather than trying to make every state in the union into Denmark against their will. Our problem isn't that we're not like Denmark, we simply can't be. Our problem is life long members that have taken over our institutions of government to their advantage rather than actually doing their constitutional obligations. Giving them authority such as is had in other countries would be disastrous. If we survived the civil war it would create.

  50. The way he treated Bernie (like a walking joke) and the way he treated Clinton… this is why Stephen is a fucking corporate SHILL since he took over the Late Show

  51. Bernie may not. Young ones under 30 that dont vote may think so. But 80 percent plus of voters do not approve of socialism.

  52. Communism is not pure socialism. It's a perverted form of socialism. American democracy (republic) is a perverted form of democracy. Like Malcolm X once said " American democracy is Nothing but disguised hypocrisy ".

  53. Liz Warren could get a leg up on this guy if she said what she said about the wealthy the way he says it, that is concise, clear, and in one sentence. Some might say that is actually a bad strategy for a woman in politics, and wonkishness is a good strategy. I don't know.
