15 Adorkable Bernie Sanders Merchandise That Are As Rad As The Senator Is Radical

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is undoubtedly the most radical presidential candidate in the race so far, and so it should hardly come as a surprise that there's some pretty radical Bernie Sanders merchandise out there. Sanders began his bid for the Democratic nomination substantially behind Hillary Clinton, the current national front-runner, according to CNN national polling. However, the radical presidential hopeful is catching up to Clinton in states like Iowa and New Hampshire, and Sanders is fairly confident he can turn the tide. 

Famous for his revolutionary stance as a democratic socialist, Sanders has attracted the attention of both students, with his promise of free college, and the elderly, with his uncompromising stance on senior care reform. While Sanders' campaign store contains pretty standard products, there's a wide range of fan-made Bernie merch available online that could appeal to both his armies of youthful supporters (read: faded Tees and clever puns), and well, less youthful supporters (read: old-fashioned clocks and social security posters).

Sanders' most endearing trait is arguably his unique refusal to be bought (yes, there's a bumper sticker with that motto), and his complete lack of shame when it comes to talking about how left-wing his views are. An attitude like that calls for some pretty radical apparel and accessories to match. Luckily for Bernie and his followers, we found a wide range of unique merch fit for his unique platform — and his unique fan base, too.

Bernie Sanders Standard Campaign Tee

Business in the front, party in the back, indeed! Like the eccentric presidential hopeful himself, the tee appears fairly average at first glance, but pay attention to what it has to say, and it will surprise you. Whether you’re 17 or 70, this shirt is perfect for blending with your fellow Sanders’ supporters at a rally for revolution.

Bernie Sanders Pride Tee

Sanders’ campaign merch store was recently updated with some pretty colorful items, which include pride stickers, buttons, mugs, and yard signs with his name, and I have to say, I’m loving the bold gesture. Sanders has been a vocal advocate for LGBT rights even when supporting or even speaking about gay marriage was considered fairly radical by both parties. If you’re looking for a way to honor both the senator’s bid for the presidency and his long history of LGBT activism, this is the tee for you!

"Give 'Em Hell, Bernie!" Mug

The presidential hopeful drew criticism recently for hosting a particularly loud rally near Capitol Hill during a prayer vigil for the Charleston shooting victims, Mashable reported. Although we can all agree that was in no way the time or place to demonstrate his thunderous vocals, in general, Sanders’ knack for making himself heard above conservative critics is something for his followers to celebrate. And I think we can all agree coffee is the best way to celebrate literally anything.

Bernie Sanders Quote Sticker

Personally, I’m not exactly sure where I’d stick this, but considering this quote pretty much encompasses the middle-class economic proverbs Sanders has been campaigning under since the beginning of his career, it’s safe to say this sticker is an essential for any true Bernie Sanders follower. I suggest sticking it on your front door, if you’d rather not run into a billionaire or corporate leader, maybe it will ward them away like garlic to vampires.

Bernie Sanders Bumper Sticker

In case, for whatever reason, you were searching through Bernie Sanders merchandise stores looking to purchase the senator himself, you’ll be disappointed to find out that no, Bernie Sanders is not for sale. Maybe buying this bumper sticker will help you get over your disappointment.

Bernie Sanders Social Security Quote Poster

This poster is not only an absolute senior home essential, but a delightful gift if you’re struggling to think of something for your grandparents’ upcoming birthdays. The design is available in the form of a standard poster, canvas art, and framed print. In any form, the cartoon portrait of Sanders is a pretty good likeness, if you ask me.

A millennial-chic tee with fashionably faded print text, this shirt looks like something you’d find on a rack in American Apparel. It’s available with black, red, or brown sleeves and is the perfect way to stylishly stand out and represent millennials at a Bernie Sanders rally.

"Feel The Bern" Tee

Clever puns were promised, and a clever pun has been delivered. I’m tempted to label this as yet another millennial-chic shirt, but who am I kidding — your grandpa could totally rock this.

"Bernie Is Bae" Tee

As for this tee — if you’re pro-Bernie and a millennial, it’s an absolute must. If the presidential hopeful should ever make an appearance on your campus, you’ll regret not showing up to his speech in this tee the rest of your life.

"Get Off The Road" Bumper Sticker

Go ahead and stick this bumper sticker on your car, but heed my advice: Be wary of conservatives with road rage.

"It's Bernie Bitches!" Classic Thong

Fan of Britney Spears and Bernie Sanders? This thong is an absolute must. It’s also a great piece for anyone who agrees with the senator’s unconventional ideas, but is a bit shy when it comes to parading their inner-radical in public. And if you’re looking for something to spice things up in the bedroom, we’ve got something else for you too…

Bernie Pillow

If candles, rose petals, an “It’s Bernie bitches!” classic thong, and Bernie pillows laid out on the floor don’t set the mood, then honestly, I’m at a loss for what will.

Psychologists For Bernie Sanders Mini Button

Radical? Yes. Insane? Well, if psychologists support him, I’m willing to bet it’s a no.

The Good Fighter Wall Clock

If Bernie Sanders telling you what time it is happens to be your life-long dream, then today is your lucky day. This old-fashioned clock is also perfect for followers of his who haven’t quite figured out the settings of new, high-tech analog clocks.
