A Reader Points Out How Far Left Bernie Really Is–But Minority Voters Don’t Care!
From: A Concerned Reader of VDARE.com [Email him]
I have been a long time reader of your website and agree with almost everything that you post.
However I just became aware today that Senator Bernie Sander is not just a socialist, he can be considered as at best a former supporter of Communism. What I read in the New York Post article that I have pasted the link to below shocked the hell out of me. I was born in Canada (which has a socialist third party) and while I do not endorse most forms of socialism I do recognize that there is a difference between socialism and communism.
I have pasted the link below to Paul Sperry’s January 16 New York Post article that one of my Facebook friends just posted today.
As polls tighten and self-described socialist Bernie Sanders looks more like a serious contender than a novelty candidate for president, the liberal media elite have suddenly stopped calling him socialist. He’s now cleaned up as a “progressive” or “pragmatist.”
But he’s not even a socialist. He’s a communist.
Mainstreaming Sanders requires whitewashing his radical pro-communist past. It won’t be easy to do.
If Sanders were vying for a Cabinet post, he’d never pass an FBI background check. There’d be too many subversive red flags popping up in his file. He was a communist collaborator during the height of the Cold War.
Rewind to 1964.
While attending the University of Chicago, Sanders joined the Young People’s Socialist League, the youth wing of the Socialist Party USA. He also organized for a communist front, the United Packinghouse Workers Union, which at the time was under investigation by the House Committee on Un-American Activities. [More]
Keep up the great work!
James Fulford writes: One interesting point about Bernie Sanders’ history of pro-Communism (what used to be called “fellow-travelling“) is that it’s being denied by prominent neoconservative (and former Communist) Ronald Radosh–see Diana West’s Propaganda’s Bodyguard of Lies, Pt. 1. at DianaWest.net.
The second point is that at this point in history, many Democratic voters, especially minority voters, don’t care if someone is disloyal to the United States of America. They’re disloyal too. That’s why Barack Obama didn’t see anything wrong with Jeremiah Wright’s hateful anti-American rantings–in a black community that votes 95% Democratic, Wright is not that extreme.
