Hero takes half a Bernie Sanders sign in the name of socialism and blows up the internet

Rebel Staff
 

A new meme has been gone viral online for its hilarious targeting of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

The photo is of a half-ripped Bernie Sanders sign. The missing half is replaced by paper with the following message on it: “I took half of your sign because you had one and I didn’t. I'm sure you understand.”



The picture got the 'Demotivational' treatment. 'Socialism' is written in a large font with “great idea…until it shows up in your front yard” under it.

What do you think of the sign change?

“If you make less than $250K/yr, you won’t even be affected at all. Only if you make more than $10 million/year will your new tax be slightly over 50%. Do you make more than $10 million a year? "

What you fail to comprehend is that if someone else is paying more tax my burden is indeed increased, by business relocating to more favorable tax regimes or engaging in more favorably taxed enterprises to the detriment of competition in the marketplace.
Secondly when government revenue is reduced because of the aforementioned actions undertaken by those with the resources to enact them do you really think the government would hesitate to collect lost revenue from lower tax brackets by increasing them, thus applying the burden to those less able to avoid them? Grow up dude!

Jonathan sorry but his promises need to be paid for and companies and rich people will move away, where will the money come from then?

No, Bernie is NOT going to take half your money. You may want to take a look at the diagram below so you can be accurate next time you claim you listen to his policies. No, he is NOT a communist. No, he doesn’t want to see you lose everything so someone lazier than you can have it. If you make less than $250K/yr, you won’t even be affected at all.
Only if you make more than $10 million/year will your new tax be slightly over 50%.

Do you make more than $10 million a year?

No?

Then stop worrying about your taxes increasing. They won’t.

So socialists , when will you be coming to clean a percentage of my condo? Change my cat litter for me and such?

HAHAHAHA this is priceless and defines socialism perfectly. But as Robert M said below it should have been 90% of the sign as Bernie wants taxes that high. And i demand some of Justins trust fund in the name of socialism.

Valeriy the left wing idiots go to Cuba and only see the resort areas and think that is all there is.

Valeriy. Welcome to the Rebel. I like you already lol. Scientists have stumbled onto the fact that Lefty’s use a different part of the brain than the rest of us. As such, I maintain they’re “incapable of learning”. So to answer your question, there’ll NEVER be enough examples for them to learn, because they CAN’T!

Joseph, being selfish asshole is not illegal. Taking others’ property is. There are reasons for it. Think about it.
commented 2016-03-09 22:42:28 -0500
I wonder how many examples like North / South Korea and West / East Germany do people need to understand how utterly crappy socialism and communism are?

Just for your information I was born in USSR and have seen it from inside. Never again.
commented 2016-03-09 22:27:35 -0500
Actually to be more accurate the perp should’ve taken at least 90% of the sign.

Well done. Canadians should take note on how to voice an opinion.
commented 2016-03-09 16:26:16 -0500
Bernie Sanders? Bernie Trudeau?? Same thing.
commented 2016-03-09 16:07:59 -0500
It would be interesting to know how many people who have seen this understand what it means with having to be told. I would bet that a lot of socialists do not understand.

@joseph Deeb:
What you posted is a meme response. They took the original one and put their own message over top (using Comic Sans for some reason). The original photo hold on its own. It’s not a two part thing.

This Communist Whaco only has half a brain, also.

Joseph…..The point of the second photo should be that…. “I” decide if someone gets the other half of my sign. Not the government or some other agency.

Problem is, the percentage of the population in the “I don’t get it” category. Wouldn’t be any different up here either.
