Every proud American is investigated by the FBI for potential ties to Marxist groups at least once in their lifetime, right?

Sheesh.

If the mainstream media did their job accurately, this would be the top story of the day.

From Washington Examiner:

Bernie Sanders campaigned for the Socialist Workers Party in the 1980 and 1984 presidential campaigns and was investigated by the FBI for his ties to the Marxist group.

Sanders has always played down the extent of his involvement with the party, which included radicals who praised the Soviet Union and Cuban communists, and has denied ever being a member. Asked in 1988 about his role as an SWP elector in 1980, he said: “I was asked to put my name on the ballot and I did, that’s true.” In fact, his ties to the party are deep and enduring.

Fox News has more:

Unearthed video footage showed 2020 hopeful Bernie Sanders recalling his excitement surrounding the Cuban revolution in the 1950s.

Sanders said, “I remember, for some reason or another, being very excited when [former Cuban dictator] Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba.

He noted, “I was a kid … and it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people.

Bernie’s socialist policies would cause irreversible damage on America – and that’s the point. That is what progressives want to see happen.

Recently on CNN, Bernie said he’d be cool with the Boston bomber voting from prison.

But not just him. All prisoners.

No joke.

From Daily Wire:

Socialist Bernie Sanders said during a CNN Democratic town hall event that he would let the Boston Marathon bomber, sex predators, and murderers vote in U.S. elections while in prison.

An audience member asked, “Would [you] support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer? Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?

Sanders noted, “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished. They may be in jail 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole life. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime. But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope … I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.

Bernie topped it off with this final line, “I believe every single person does have the right to vote.

Just completely crazy, right?

Al Sharpton’s Failed 2004 Campaign For President Is Still Close To $1M In Debt

Published

on

Rev. Al Sharpton once ran for president — hilarious, right? — back in 2004 and his presidential campaign was a complete and total disaster. How much of a disaster was it? Well, it’s been fifteen years since he ran the campaign and it’s still $900,000 in debt. Of course, Sharpton also hasn’t paid off his massive tax debts in a very long time, so perhaps the notion that this particular race baiting individual doesn’t pay his bills isn’t all that surprising. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “I have asked Andrew Rivera, the finance chair of my 2004 campaign, to set up a meeting with the Federal Election Commission so that I can resolve any campaign debts related to Sharpton 2004,” Sharpton told the New York Post over the weekend. “I am willing to work out a settlement for all claims with my own money to the degree that I’m allowed and will raise money directly.” He added, “Even if I am not legally liable for it, I am certainly morally responsible.” Sharpton is not personally on the hook for the money 15 years later. Instead, it’s his campaign committee and specifically his campaign treasurer, Andrew Rivera, who are responsible. Jerri Ann Henry, a consultant with an extensive work history with campaigns and PACS said, “It does reflect poorly on the people at the helm. I have worked for candidates who I know have taken great pains to make sure staff and consultants are taken care of. Frankly, almost a million dollars, that’s a lot of money. Today’s campaigns spend at that level all the time, but that is very significant coming all the way back in 2004.” This isn’t the first time Sharpton’s campaign has run into trouble. He also ran into some problems with the Federal Election…

Bloomberg Claim Of Being Able To ‘Teach Anybody To Be A Farmer’ Resurfaces; It’s Slammed As Being ‘Embarrassingly Ignorant’

Published

on

Democratic presidential candidate and former mayor Michael Bloomberg has been getting raked over the coals for the last few weeks as more and more video footage continues to be unearthed of him saying rather unsavory things that seem to be turning off leftist voters everywhere. First, it was video of him saying rather racist things concerning the Stop and Frisk policy in New York City, then comments about women popped up, then statements about allowing elderly people with cancer to die, and now a comment about him being able to teach anyone to be a farmer. This guy was obviously delusional to even consider a run for president with this kind of stuff in his closet. No amount of campaign spending for commercials is going to save him now. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: A clip of Bloomberg lecturing at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School in 2016 resurfaced over the weekend and sparked outrage from the Left and the Right on Twitter. In the footage, the former New York City mayor said that people need more “gray matter” to do the technological jobs of the Information Age than those in agrarian or industrial societies. “The agrarian society lasted 3,000 years,” he said. “I could teach anybody … to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, you add water, up comes the corn. “Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow, and you can have a job,” Bloomberg continued. The now-presidential candidate went on to distinguish the “information economy” from all preceding time periods. “The information economy is fundamentally different because it’s built around replacing people with…
