While I’m feeling the Bern–I think Sanders is the best option (which says more about the other candidates than anything else)–I don’t think he’ll win the Democratic nomination, let alone the general election. But suppose he did. What kind of batshit lunacy would the right come up with to tar him? I’m not talking about run-of-the-mill anti-Semitism–I fully expect some of that from the Republicans. I mean full-bore nuttiness: FEMA camps, UN Mongolian shock troops in black helicopters (that one is real, by the way…).
Calling Sanders a socialist or even a communist won’t work–they do that all the time with Obama, as ludicrous as that is, so that trope seems all played out.
No doubt, they would think of something, but, for the life of me, I can’t think what it could be.
