There is a new ice-cream from Ben and Jerry’s called, Bernie’s Yearning.
The entire top of this pint is covered with a thick disc of solid chocolate. Underneath is plain mint ice cream.
The chocolate disc – we are told – on the outside wrap of the pint, represents the huge majority of economic gains that gone to the top one-percent since the end of the recession. Beneath it, the rest of us.
1 Take back of spoon and whack huge chocolate disc into lots of pieces.
2 Let the ice cream soften up a bit, mix the pieces around–and there you have it, Bernie’s Yearning.
3 Dig in, and share it with your fellow Americans!

Whack the rich and mix into the rest – i.e.. redistribute wealth, steal from the rich and give to the poor.
So, what does Bernie yearn for with a truly religious zeal? Larger more intrusive, more dictatorial civil government. He hopes from more socialist medicine, more control of everyone and everything so that civil government can be the savior of mankind. Sanders is a devotee of the religion called Marxism and the civil government is his savior.
Not only that, but perhaps you remember what Sanders did back in June 2017:
“During a confirmation hearing for Russell Vought, President Trump’s nominee for deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget, Sanders expressed his indignation at an article Vought had written in January 2016 about a controversy that erupted at Vought’s alma mater, Wheaton College… Sanders, in a blatant violation of Article VI of the U.S. Constitution, was applying a religious test for an office of public trust.
Specifically, Sanders doesn’t think Christians are fit to serve in government because [in his own words] they’re bigots. Basic Christian theology, in Sanders’s view, ‘is indefensible, it is hateful, it is Islamophobic, and it is an insult to over a billion Muslims throughout the world.’
Sanders conflated Vought’s thoroughly commonplace understanding of Christian theology with racism and bigotry…The Left, itself a kind of secular religion, does not really think it’s okay to be religious—to hold strong convictions about eternal salvation or the divinity of Jesus Christ. Progressives believe this is disturbing and un-American. The irony is that the opposite is true, as John Adams put it: ‘Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.’
Understand, too, that the progressives who now run the Democratic Party will turn a blind eye to the exclusivity claims of Muslims and other religious groups they think they need in their political coalition. But they will not suffer Christians.” thefederalist.com
Sanders is not alone. These so-called Progressives hate the Gospel of Jesus Christ and those who adhere to Jesus Christ as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. They believe that Christians stand in their way, the path of establishing salvation they believe they will usher in here on earth. They understand that Christians have absolute loyalty to Jesus Christ and the Word of God and they will not bow to the Marxist regime that denies that Jesus Christ is Lord.
