Bernie Sanders supported Iran when they kidnapped 52 American diplomats and citizens and kept them hostage 444 days

This should not come as a surprise to anyone. Bernie Sanders has stacked his campaign with some of America’s most notable supporters of jihad. In addition, Sanders is an open sympathizer for some of the worlds most lethal jihad terrorist groups.

What is frightening is that it is very plausible that Bernie Sanders will be the Democrat Party’s nominee. In fact, Bernie Sanders will likely be the clear front runner once Elizabeth Warren ends her dying campaign.

A President Sanders would be a gift to the Islamic Republic of Iran. He would practically give the murdering Mullah’s carte blanche to wreak their havoc and destruction. This is just another example of why Bernie Sanders is the most dangerous presidential candidate of our lifetime. Like Jeremy Corbyn, Bernie Sanders must be stopped.

Bernie Sanders was in a party that supported Iran during hostage crisis

Pulley often condemned “[US President Jimmy] Carter’s war drive against the Iranian people,” claiming the US “was on the brink of war with Iran.”

By Jerusalem Post, January 18th, 2019:

In April 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini took over Iran; months later 52 American diplomats and citizens, as well as citizens of other nations, were kidnapped and held hostage for 444 days in the US Embassy in Tehran.

While a majority of Americans stood firmly for the hostages and against their kidnappers, the Socialist Workers Party (SWP), a self-proclaimed Trotskyist revolutionary party, took the opposite position and insisted that the hostages were CIA agents, according to the Daily Beast.

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders joined SWP in 1980 and served as a presidential elector in Vermont, advocating for the party’s candidates who ran on a platform that defended Iran’s keeping the hostages, the website reported. At a rally, SWP’s presidential candidate Andrew Pulley condemned “anti-Iranian hysteria around the US hostages.”

Pulley often condemned “[US President Jimmy] Carter’s war drive against the Iranian people,” claiming that the US “was on the brink of war with Iran,” according to the Daily Beast. He also said that the war’s aim would be “to protect the oil and banking interests of the Rockefellers and other billionaires.”

On May 21, 1981, Sanders spoke at a Pulley rally saying: “For the last 40 years the Socialist Workers Party has… been harassed, informed upon, had their offices broken into, had members of their party fired from their jobs, and have been treated with cold contempt by the United States government,” the report said.

The Sanders campaign did not respond to the Daily Beast’s request for comment.  After US President Donald Trump ordered a strike to take out Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) commander Qasem Soleimani, Sanders spoke out against it.
