Sanders on capitalism

He's sick and tired of being questioned about being a democratic socialist. He said in last weekend's Meet the Press:

"When one of your Republican colleagues gets on the show, do you say, 'Are you a capitalist?' Have you ever referred to them as capitalists?"

The answer is of course no, no one ever asks that question. It's taken for granted that capitalism is the accepted and normal thing for one to be, while socialism is somehow evil. It's an inherent societal and media bias that is never even questioned when it needs to be. And that question needs to be asked and have adherents defend it, for it is the main problem in our culture.
