We have two people. One is Ronald Reagan, patron saint and fetish object of the Republican party. Modern Republicans cannot stop talking about how amazing Reagan was, and how his presidency was the “golden age” of modern America. To them, Reagan never did anything wrong and was the greatest president ever. The other is Bernie Sanders, who if you believe Republicans, is some radical socialist that will burn America to a cinder, hates your freedom, wants to grab your guns, then proceed to exterminate every living thing from east to west coast.
Logically, if you listen to modern Republicans, Bernie Sanders and Ronald Reagan are like matter and anti-matter. They couldn’t be more different. Good guy, bad guy, etc.. But if you actually listen to what they say, you know that actually isn’t entirely accurate.
Of course there are still some differences between Bernie and what Reagan would say today. However, when you see their similarities and considering how much Republicans claim to worship Reagan, you can see just how clinically and terminally insane the modern Republican party is. Reagan and Sanders sound literally like they are reading the same speech and just taking turns. If you know a Republican, piss them off today by sharing this with them and asking them to explain their contradiction.
