Bernie Sanders has an anti-Semitism problem

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


B ernie Sanders may be ethnically Jewish, but his campaign is rapidly turning out to be the most anti-Semitic in decades.

The latest scandal to rock the Vermont senator's campaign is his overnight reversal on endorsing Cenk Uygur, the Armenian genocide-denying founder of liberal news network The Young Turks. Sanders retracted his endorsement of Uygur for California's 35th congressional seat since vacated by Katie Hill, after rare bipartisan backlash.

Among other malfeasance, Uygur has written countless misogynist screeds, advocated for the legalization of bestiality, and perhaps most alarmingly, favorably interviewing former KKK leader David Duke.

Even if Uygur had given Duke a challenging interview, it's still irresponsible to give Duke and his ilk a platform.

In a vacuum, that Bernie even gave this thug the time of day at all would have been bad enough. Uygur's misogyny and general grossness has been well-known for years, but his anti-Semitism is just a part of a pattern of the vile creatures Sanders has now surrounded himself with.

Earlier this month, media coverage cajoled Sanders into distancing himself from yet another anti-Semitic associate. Darius Khalil Gordon, his deputy director of constituency organizing,   left   the campaign after the   Washington Free Beacon   dug up   numerous anti-Semitic and misogynistic tweets.

But at least Bernie presumably kicked an anti-Semite to the curb in that case. He could have very well put Gordon on stage with him instead.

A prominent face of the Bernie campaign is Linda Sarsour, the ex-Women's March leader who was   ousted by the group   for her long history of anti-Semitism. Most recently, the Louis Farrakhan acolyte   said   that Israel is "built on" the notion that "Jews are supreme to everybody else."

Another Sanders star is Ilhan Omar, the freshman congresswoman from Minnesota   famous   for charging American Jews with dual loyalty and repeatedly invoking anti-Semitic tropes and smears. She's joined by Rep. Rashida Tlaib, the one-state solution supporter who most recently   cared so little for the bodies   of slain Jews in New Jersey that she claimed they were murdered by white supremacy, not Black Hebrew Israelites.

Once is a mistake. Twice is a coincidence. Countless times constitutes a pervasive pattern, and the media ought to wisen up and hold the increasingly anti-Semitic Sanders campaign to account at last.

America needs to reject these purveyors of bigotry just like we saw our friends across the pond do in their recent election.

Aww look SP is off topic but that's OK.

See SP derail, SP has no rebuttal. Not even he can defend Bernie's rabid antisemitism issue.

"Bernie Sanders may be ethnically Jewish, but his campaign is rapidly turning out to be the most anti-Semitic in decades."

That's what happens when AOC (Friends of Omar and Tlaib) starts Helping? your campaign.

These antisemitic Socialists must be smashed. Watching Jeremy Corbyn's career come to an end was a wonderful thing. Next up time to shelf the American socialists that allow bigotry to grow in their culture.

It's odd that he's so anti-Semitic and surrounds himself with anti-Semites (AOC, Omar, etc), because some of his ancestors were murdered by Hitler when he was a little boy.

Adolph Hitler was said to have Jewish ancestry, Karl Marx was Jewish and an antisemite. It's a strange phenomena for sure.

Sorry, no cigar for you today, John Wayne was not Jewish.  He was Presbyterian but converted to Roman Catholicism late in his life.

The judges say that RC is almost the same as Judaism, but no dice for this silly Nazi Jewish insult festival.

Something that I find interesting / do not understand is how 'good people on both sides' is echoed as being supportive of supremacy - yet the Speaker of the House can defend anti Semitic remarks by saying 'she did not understand the full weight of her words' …?  Same excuse could be used for Trump 'he did not understand that his choice of words would haunt him' … see how that works?

As disgusting as white supremacy is, 'we' know their beliefs, it is not hidden … the new anti Semitic movement has / is working its way into the United States government as elected officials and those individuals are being defended by many....!

Disclaimer … I am not defending Trump .. I am trying to point out the words that many choose to ignore and the ones that for many will never be forgot because Trump said them..

Not only might Sanders be antisemitic, but he bashes Israel by suggesting that to "control" Israel the military aid given to Israel should go to Hamas instead.  In a way, i hope he's chosen to be the Democratic candidate to run against the Republican one, because he is bound to suffer the same embarrassing demise as Corbyn has.

     " military aid given to Israel should go to Hamas instead:"

Thanks for pointing that out, In my opinion Hamas is an enemy of the USA
