This one is for the folks who – like me – admire Bernie Sanders because, for the most part, he sticks to his core principles instead of blowing with the political winds.
It is important to remember just what those principles are, and where they lead him.
With the above in mind, please read the beginning of Peter Hasson’s article for dailycaller.com – which, of course, got zero notice in our mainstream media:
Seattle Councilwoman Kshama Sawant, a socialist who belongs to a Trotskyist organization that wants to seize control of America’s banks, was a featured speaker at Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s 2020 campaign rally in Seattle on Monday.
In her speech to Sanders’s supporters, Sawant called for a “powerful socialist movement to end all capitalist oppression and exploitation.”
Sawant is a member of Socialist Alternative, a fringe Trotskyist group that is open about its goal of a “socialist United States and a socialist world,” according to its website.
Tell me: if someone belonging to an organization as far to the right as Kshama Sawant is to the left was a featured speaker at a Donald Trump rally, do you think mainstream media would notice? Mention on the network and cable news shows? What do you think they’d say about it. What do you think they’d say about Trump? The fact that he would allow such a person to represent him at a public event?
But for Bernie? Crickets chirping. I just checked google and, on the first five full pages, nothing from ABC, NBC, CBS, The NY Times or Washington Post – which means it isn’t there at all.
This is the real Bernie Sanders. This is who his policies attract. This is what our media are so deeply committed to not telling you about/reminding you of.
Be sure to mention it to your friends.
