“Let’s be grateful to Susan Sarandon for exposing just how vapid and callous the left-wing #NeverHillary argument is. Speaking to Chris Hayes on MSNBC on Monday night, Sarandon, a Bernie Sanders surrogate, said she was unsure if she could bring herself to vote for Hillary Clinton in a general election. Hayes was shocked, but Sarandon posited that a Trump presidency might be preferable to a Clinton one, because it would hasten the revolution. “Some people feel that Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately if he gets in, things will really explode,” she said.”
“Susan Sarandon is perfect spokeswoman for #neverhillary.”

With a mouthpiece like this, those of us who do not quite #feelthebern should be forgiven for believing that Senator Sanders (and/or no small number of his followers) is operating with an agenda that goes much further than changes to the system. The goal is revolution, not evolution: the destruction and replacement of the system, not its repair and upgrade.
Just as Trump was morally obliged to distance himself from his racist supporters (an obligation he failed,) Sanders must either distance himself from Sarandon’s remarks, or be considered complicit in them.
