Sanders presidency would be an ‘unprecedented nightmare’ for Jews

33

You think things are bad for American Jews now? If Bernie Sanders is ever elected POTUS, what is happening now in Brooklyn will seem like child’s play. Bernie Sanders is America’s Jeremy Corbyn. He’s that bad. However, most of America’s Jewish groups have been reluctant to attack Sanders for his anti-Semitism. That is because Sanders is in fact Jewish by birth.

The fact that Sanders attacks Israel regularly, and brings anti-Semites into his campaign, and endorses Jeremy Corbyn, means absolutely nothing to most of America’s Jewish groups. It’s an absolute joke and a disgrace. If Bernie Sanders is elected president, American Jews will pay a big price for it.

A Sanders presidency would be an ‘unprecedented nightmare’ for Jews

Bernie Sanders becoming America’s first Jewish president would be no friend to his fellow Jews, thanks to his anti-Israel, pro-BDS rhetoric.

A Bernie Sanders win in the 2020 Presidential race would deliver the first Jewish American president to the White House, but would be no win for Jews or Israel, Jewish News Syndicate Editor-in-Chief Jonathan S. Tobin has warned.

Sanders isn’t typically viewed as a front runner in the presidential race, as his far-left policies are widely viewed as giving him a vocal, but narrow voter base. But a recent analysis by Politico has suggested that those writing off Sanders’ campaign may be premature, as the 78-year-old senator has the staying power that younger, flashier candidates lack.

According to Politico, Democratic Party insiders have taken a second look at Sanders’ chances given his staying power and are now forecasting that it may come down to Sanders vs former Vice President Joe Biden.

“It may have been inevitable that eventually you would have two candidates representing each side of the ideological divide in the party. A lot of smart people I’ve talked to lately think there’s a very good chance those two end up being Biden and Sanders,” David Brock, a Hillary Clinton ally, told Politico. “They’ve both proven to be very resilient.”

Elizabeth Warren had been tipped to be the one to go up against Biden, but her star has waned in recent polls. Similarly, bids by Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Beto O’Rourke have all quickly burned out, leaving the field open for Sanders, as a more steady hand, to move up.

Dan Pfeiffer, who served as an adviser to former President Barack Obama told Politico: “I believe people should take him very seriously. He has a very good shot of winning Iowa, a very good shot of winning New Hampshire, and other than Joe Biden, the best shot of winning Nevada. He could build a real head of steam heading into South Carolina and Super Tuesday.”

And California state Senator Scott Wiener said that Sanders had been “more resilient than I anticipated,” adding, “But in retrospect, he has a very, very loyal following, and people have really stuck with him.”

 

‪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?
