It's inappropriate to focus on a political candidate's looks — unless, perhaps, it's Canada's Justin Trudeau — but, according to one Instagram account, supporters are more than fair game. 

A new Instagram account, MenWhoBern, a play on Sanders' famous hashtag, is redistributing the wealth of hot guys on the Internet. The account collects the hottest socialist-loving selfies to create one online archive of picture-perfect progressives.

"I #feelthebern because Americans deserve to live in a system that doesn't breed worry and stress, like I do," reads one sign on the Instagram's account. Another picture shows a man holding a Planned Parenthood solidarity sign.

Sanders is famous for running on a platform of income inequality, gender and racial parity, and strengthening the middle class, but he may have inspired an even better historical phenomenon: the rise of the broletariat.
