If America’s leading Jewish organizations exposed Bernie Sanders for the anti-Semite that he is, he would not get away with making such a dishonest statement. Actually it is being a self-hating Jew that influences your politics very profoundly, Bernie! That is why you flew to London to campaign for the neo-Nazi Jeremy Corbyn. That is why are you running the most openly anti-Semitic presidential campaign in history? That is why you have stacked your campaign with anti-Semites who accuse Jewish Americans of controlling the United States Congress, and who support the BDS Movement, and who compare Israelis to dogs. No Jewish American should support any of the Democrat Party’s presidential candidates, and most especially the virulent anti-Semite Bernie Sanders. #Jexodus
Linda Sarsour blames Jews for police shootings of unarmed black people. And she’s an official surrogate for Bernie Sanders. She’s not the only Sanders backer with an anti-Semitic history. https://t.co/CGY0TNTw6K

Bernie Sanders is the American Corbyn… and this isn't good.

Bernie Sanders: Being Jewish influences my politics ‘very profoundly’
By Jewish News of Northern California, February 7, 2020:
Asked whether his Jewish identity would be “a help or a hindrance” as he runs for president, Bernie Sanders said that his Jewishness is one of the two main factors that shaped his outlook.
The Vermont senator, appearing on a CNN town hall for Democratic presidential candidates broadcast Thursday from New Hampshire, was asked by a local woman about his Jewish identity.
“It impacts me very profoundly,” he said. “When I try to think about the views that I came to hold there are two factors. One I grew up in a family that didn’t have a lot of money … and the second one is being Jewish.”
Sanders recalled as a child reading “big picture books of World War II” and “tears would roll down my cheeks” when he saw what happened to Jews.
“At a very early age, even before my political thoughts were developed, I was aware of the horrible things that human beings can do to other people in the name of racism or white nationalism, or in this case Nazism,” said Sanders, who also recalled seeing Holocaust survivors in his Brooklyn neighborhood with numbers tattooed on their arms, and a recent visit to his father’s hometown in Poland, where locals took him and his brother to a site where Nazis committed a mass murder of Jews.
