The Hill reported that “Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (I-Vt.) on Wednesday invoked his ancestors’ deaths in Holocaust concentration camps as he embraced a Muslim student and promised to lead the fight against racism.” His ancestors’ deaths in Holocaust concentration camps he is likening to the fictional construct of “Islamophobia”? What craven pandering.
Sanders also said: “Our job is to build a nation in which we all stand together as one. There is a lot of anger being generated, hatred being generated against Muslims in this country, that is absolutely correct. There is hatred being generated against immigrants in this country.” This is absolutely untrue. The anger is against the jihad that is being waged against the United States, as well as against non-Muslim minorities in Muslim countries. The Hill tells us that Sanders was speaking at George Mason University, and that “the Democratic presidential candidate was interrupted many times by cheers from the friendly crowd.” Of course: college students all over the country are indoctrinated with pro-jihad, anti-American ideas day in and day out. It is no surprise at all that they would be so susceptible to Sanders’ silly narrative of Muslim victimhood.
