The recent attacks on Bernie Sanders for delivering an opinion on the State of the Union Address show us Anti-Semitism is alive and well in the Democratic Party.
The Democrats, who rigged their party’s primary process in 2016 to ensure Bernie Sanders would lose to Hillary Clinton, thus ensuring they would run the only Presidential candidate worse than Donald Trump against Donald Trump, again show us just how much they hate it when Bernie Sanders attempts to inject a progressive opinion into the political discourse. And we know from Hillary’s leaked e-mails that anti-semitism not only fueled the attack on Sanders, but also was a key part of the strategy, exploiting the anti-semitic leanings of members of the Democratic Party in their campaign to stop Sanders’ grass-roots campaign from succeeding.
I am certain Bernie Sanders was not the only person to tweet a response to the State of the Union address. Certainly not the only member of Congress. Why has his response been singled out for attack by Democrats? The party that continues its shift away from New Deal politics to identity politics frames its attacks on Sanders under the guide of race and gender.
Because Stacey Abrams is a Black female, then Bernie Sanders must be racist for sharing his opinion of the State of the Union address. Are we supposed to believe that White males aren’t allowed to offer an opinion? Were any other White men with opinions publicly ostracized? Or is singling out Sanders just another in a long line of anti-semitic musings from the Democratic base?
Break away, Bernie. Break away. America needs a true Independent.
