These kind of incidents are likely just the beginning. The depraved Bernie Sanders is a virulent anti-Semite and anti-Zionist. Sanders has spent much of his career vilifying Israel, and has also played a significant role in normalizing anti-Semitism in the United States. Therefore, it should not come as a surprise to anyone that Sanders has as a campaign staff that is full of Jew-haters.
“Sanders aide apologizes for questioning American Jews ‘dual allegiance’ to Israel,” by Marc Caputo, Politico, March 12, 2019:
A spokeswoman for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign apologized Tuesday after questioning whether the “American-Jewish community has a dual allegiance to the state of Israel” — a comment condemned by Jewish leaders across the political spectrum as having anti-Semitic overtones.
“In a conversation on Facebook, I used some language that I see now was insensitive. Issues of allegiance and loyalty to one’s country come with painful history,” Belén Sisa, Sanders’ national deputy press secretary, told POLITICO. “At a time when so many communities in our country feel under attack by the president and his allies, I absolutely recognize that we need to address these issues with greater care and sensitivity to their historical resonance, and I’m committed to doing that in the future.”
Sisa posed the question Sunday during a discussion in a Facebook thread in which she said that, like Sanders, she stood with Rep. Ilhan Omar. She deleted the post after POLITICO began asking about it.
Omar’s repeated comments about Israel led to a messy fight in the House as many of her fellow Democrats accused the first-term congresswoman of using anti-Semitic language. Omar’s defenders have said she was making valid criticisms of the nation’s government and allies that were being stifled.
