Absolutely disgusting. However, such a statement is not a surprise from America’s most dangerous self-hating Jew. If Joe Biden wins on Tuesday than Bernie Sanders will have a prominent role in normalizing Israel hatred in the United States. If the Democrat Party had any integrity (they don’t) they would ostracize Sanders the way the Labor Party in Britain ostracized Jeremy Corbyn.

Bernie Sanders calls Israel ‘authoritarian’ at Pittsburgh memorial
“All over the world… in Israel… We see intolerant authoritarian political leaders attacking the very foundations of democratic societies,” said Sanders.
By Jerusalem Post, October 31, 2020
In a speech about the dangers of bigotry at a memorial for the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, Bernie Sanders included Israel in a list of countries where authoritarianism is rising.Sanders, the democratic socialist Vermont senator, was the keynote speaker at a virtual memorial event hosted by Bend The Arc, a progressive Jewish advocacy group. The event, held a day after the two-year anniversary of the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh in which 11 Jews were killed, centered on warning of the dangerous effects of white supremacy and xenophobia.Sanders spoke about how relatives of his were murdered in the Holocaust, and how he understands the threat posed when white supremacists gain power. He then spoke about how white supremacy targets Jews and all minorities, and how it poses a threat to liberal democracy. He then segued to speaking about how illiberalism and authoritarianism were on the rise around the world, including in Israel.“They don’t just hate Jews,” he said of white supremacists. “They hate the idea of multiracial democracy. They hate the idea of political equality. They hate immigrants, people of color, LGBTQ people, women and anyone else who stands in the way of their bigotry and racist ideology. All over the world — in Russia, in India, in Brazil, in Hungary, in Israel and elsewhere, we see this rise of a divisive and destructive form of politics. We see intolerant authoritarian political leaders attacking the very foundations of democratic societies.”Sanders was frequently critical of Netanyahu while he was running for president earlier this year. Critics in Israel and abroad have also called out Netanyahu’s perceived disregard for democratic norms, including his remaining in office while on trial for corruption and legislation that critics say degrades the status of Israel’s Arab minority. An ongoing protest movement in Israel is also calling for Netanyahu’s resignation due to his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has spiked in Israel, and his corruption trial. In successive election campaigns last year, Netanyahu trumpeted his relationships with authoritarian leaders like Russia’s Vladmir Putin and China’s Xi Jinping as a selling point.
