The man is a shameless liar and bigot. This vile Stalinist proudly abandoned his Judaism long ago, but will accuse people who expose his hypocrisy of anti-Semitism. It is appalling that Sanders would have the audacity to accuse anyone of anti-Semitism. Sanders is one of the most vicious anti-Semites to hold public office in the United States. Right up there with Omar, Tlaib, Ellison, and Ocasio-Cortez.
For decades Sanders has used his political influence to denigrate Israel. He proudly appointed three advocates for the BDS (Boycott the Jews) Movement to the Democrat Party’s platform committee, he employs the most dreadful of Jew-haters in his presidential campaign, and he refuses to support anti-BDS legislation, to make life safer for pro-Israel Jewish Americans.
Sanders has also come to the defense of Reps Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar after they were rightfully condemned for their repugnant anti-Jewish statements. In addition, Sanders has turned a blind eye to the borderline Nazism expressed by Jeremy Corbyn, and even flew to London to campaign for his fellow Stalinist.
It is only when it serves him politically that Bernie Sanders will re-discover his Judaism. Recently full-page adds were printed in the New York Times to expose Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for their anti-Semitism. The same thing should be done to Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders’ anti-Semitism must also be exposed.
Bernie Sanders finally mentions he is a Jew to complain about ‘anti-Semitism’ in an article about his wealth,
By American Thinker, Thomas Lifson, June 6, 2019:
Until it became useful for him to claim that being a victim of anti-Semitism, there is no visible evidence of Bernie Sanders embracing his Jewish heritage, and plenty of evidence of him avoiding it. Daniel Greenfield yesterday pointed out:
Only Bernie Sanders could write an entire New York Times essay titled, I” Know Where I Came From. Does President Trump?” without mentioning Jewish.
Instead, in typical Bernie fashion, it describes his father as a Polish immigrant.
“My father came to this country from Poland at the age of 17 with barely a nickel in his pocket,” Sanders writes.
And that’s as close to the subject as he gets. He describes his father as an immigrant. That’s it. An immigrant from Poland.
It’s not just conservatives who have noticed, either. In 2016, the New York Times published an article titled “Bernie Sanders Is Jewish, but He Doesn’t Like to Talk About It.”
When Senator Bernie Sanders thanked supporters for his landslide victory in the New Hampshire Democratic primary, he wistfully reminisced about his upbringing as “the son of a Polish immigrant who came to this country speaking no English and having no money.”
While the crowd cheered, Rabbi Michael Paley of New York was among many Jews watching the speech who were taken aback. He said he was surprised that the Vermont senator had not explicitly described his father as a “Polish Jewish immigrant,” a significant distinction given Poland’s checkered history with its Jewish population.
Bernie has been playing footsie (and worse) with the large and growing Jew-hating and Israel-hating faction of the Democratic Party, so the last thing he wanted was an embrace – or even a bare mention – of his Jewish heritage. That romance with Jew-haters has continued into the current election cycle, with one of his key aides caught and forced to apologize for disseminating a common trope against American Jews, as Politico reported last March:
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.
