Bernie Supporter Explains Democratic Socialism at NH Victory Rally: ‘I Stand By This Brand 100 Percent’

During Bernie Sanders victory rally in New Hampshire Tuesday night, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America described the philosophy of “democratic socialism” to Breitbart News.

“Evan S” of Massachusetts was in New Hampshire working for the Sanders campaign. Breitbart reported, “They — and they noted that ‘they/them’ is their preferred pronoun, or ‘she’ if absolutely necessary — walked through the philosophy of ‘democratic socialism,’ as Sanders himself had explained it.”

‘I don’t think it hurts Bernie at all’

“You listen to Bernie explain it, and it’s always so relatable,” “Evan S” or “They” said. “This isn’t Soviet communism, this is policies that meet human needs, like ‘Medicare for All’ … canceling student debt, getting rid of people’s medical debt — these are policies that are popular! Majorities support these. So, for me, democratic socialism is about building a movement of ordinary people that can demand change.”

“So I don’t think it hurts Bernie at all,” “They” added.

‘I’m a socialist, I stand by this brand 100 percent’

“They” insisted the “democratic socialist” label would help Sanders more than it would harm him.

“I’m a socialist, I stand by this brand 100 percent, you can see I’ve got my Democratic Socialists of America jacket,” “They” said. “I think that this is really just the beginning. …. I think what people really respond to is big programs that generate wins and change their lives. And I think as Bernie’s movement starts to put the pressure to really improve things for people — these high-deductible health plans, going away; this medical debt that ruining people’s lives, going away…”

“I think it’s really important that Bernie talks about democratic socialism while he does those things so that people can come to understand the opportunities of this whole set of politics, and this whole movement-building approach, which Bernie has, uniquely, in the primary,” Evan S. continued.

Comparing Bernie Sanders to Early 20th Century Socialist Party Candidate Eugene Debs

“Bernie is so good at coming out, and saying he’s a democratic socialist, but also talking about being the ‘organizer-in-chief,’ and ‘Not me. Us,’ and how he’ll use the presidency to build a movement of ordinary people to change things for themselves, right — just like Eugene Debs did at the turn of the century,” “They” finished.

It should be noted that Eugene V. Debs ran for president as the nominee for the Socialist Party from 1900 to 1920, winning 6 percent of the vote in 1912.
