Bernie Sanders is the Jeremy Corbyn of the United States. Like Jeremy Corbyn, Bernie Sanders is a radical Marxist. Like Jeremy Corbyn, Bernie Sanders is a vicious anti-Israel bigot. Like Jeremy Corbyn, Bernie Sanders shares a platform with some of the world’s worst Jew-haters. It is time for American Jews (the ones with dignity) to take down this vile anti-Semite, the way Britain’s Jews helped take down Jeremy Corbyn.
Bernie Sanders has an anti-Semitism problem.
Bernie Sanders may be ethnically Jewish, but his campaign is rapidly turning out to be the most anti-Semitic in decades.
By Washington Examiner, December 14, 2019:
The latest scandal to rock the Vermont senator’s campaign is his overnight reversal on endorsing Cenk Uygur, the Armenian genocide-denying founder of liberal news network The Young Turks. Sanders retracted his endorsement of Uygur for California’s 35th congressional seat since vacated by Katie Hill, after rare bipartisan backlash.
Among other malfeasance, Uygur has written countless misogynist screeds, advocated for the legalization of bestiality, and perhaps most alarmingly, favorably interviewing former KKK leader David Duke.
#Cenk2020 interviewed David Duke in 2015 in a segment titled: "Duke Explains how Jews Control Everything." At the end Cenk says "thank you for joining us" and Duke tells him how "courageous" he is. "I'm not a racist" Duke says to which Cenk responds "No, of course not…" pic.twitter.com/oYPJRoG7Sy

Even if Uygur had given Duke a challenging interview, it’s still irresponsible to give Duke and his ilk a platform.
In a vacuum, that Bernie even gave this thug the time of day at all would have been bad enough. Uygur’s misogyny and general grossness has been well-known for years, but his anti-Semitism is just a part of a pattern of the vile creatures Sanders has now surrounded himself with.
Earlier this month, media coverage cajoled Sanders into distancing himself from yet another anti-Semitic associate. Darius Khalil Gordon, his deputy director of constituency organizing, left the campaign after the Washington Free Beacon dug up numerous anti-Semitic and misogynistic tweets.
But at least Bernie presumably kicked an anti-Semite to the curb in that case. He could have very well put Gordon on stage with him instead.
A prominent face of the Bernie campaign is Linda Sarsour, the ex-Women’s March leader who was ousted by the group for her long history of anti-Semitism. Most recently, the Louis Farrakhan acolyte said that Israel is “built on” the notion that “Jews are supreme to everybody else.”
Another Sanders star is Ilhan Omar, the freshman congresswoman from Minnesota famous for charging American Jews with dual loyalty and repeatedly invoking anti-Semitic tropes and smears. She’s joined by Rep. Rashida Tlaib, the one-state solution supporter who most recently cared so little for the bodies of slain Jews in New Jersey that she claimed they were murdered by white supremacy, not Black Hebrew Israelites.
Once is a mistake. Twice is a coincidence. Countless times constitutes a pervasive pattern, and the media ought to wisen up and hold the increasingly anti-Semitic Sanders campaign to account at last.
When Bernie Sanders made @lindasarsour his campaign surrogate he knew what he was getting in to. He knew she was a rabid Antisemite posing as an anti-Zionist. He knew she supported terrorists and called for the dehumanization of Israelis. He knew and doesn’t care! Shame on him!With Jews like Bernie who needs antisemites like Sarsour?
