A friend writes: “The media has embraced Hillary. Sanders has peaked and I am p***ed that he never truly embraced the American radical tradition: Paine to FDR. Instead he continually spoke of Denmark–wtf? Denmark?”
I disagree with this writer about his interpretations of Paine and FDR. But “Denmark–wtf?” could be the epitaph for Feeling the Bern. My friend likes socialism because he believes it to be all-American. But many of his comrades like it because it is un-American.
