Sure, the High Sparrow from Game of Thrones looks a lot like Bernie Sanders. But he also sounds like him.

3. “A lifetime of wealth and power has left you blind in one eye.”

4. “Every one of us is poor… and powerless.”

5. “Let us wage a moral and political war against war itself.”

6. “Together… we can overthrow an empire.”

7. “Strip away the gold and the ornaments, knock down the statues and the pillars, and this what remains: something simple… solid… and true.”

8. “We are living in a world where greed has become for the wealthiest people their own religion, and they make no apologies for it.”

9. “I tell them no one’s special, and they think I’m special for telling them so.”

10. “The real issue here, if you look at the Koch Brothers’ agenda, is: look at what many of the extreme right-wing people believe. Obamacare is just the tip of the iceberg. These people want to abolish the concept of the minimum wage, they want to privatize the Veteran’s Administration, they want to privatize Social Security, end Medicare as we know it, massive cuts in Medicaid, wipe out the EPA, you don’t have an Environmental Protection Agency anymore, Department of Energy gone, Department of Education gone. That is the agenda.”
