I’m pretty sure it will come as a surprise to no one, other than apparently those residing there in his home state of Vermont, that Bernie Sanders has long been little more than your very typical communist, although he obviously prefers to go by the moniker of “socialist.” And while Sanders’ relationship with the former Soviet Union is fairly well known, including the fact that he and his wife honeymooned there, it’s the extent of that relationship that may still surprise a few. It’s a relationship that is revealed in hours of video that Politico has viewed and also reported on that shows Sanders connection to ‘Russia’ has gone on for more than 30 years.
“The mood is festive as the two bestow the items: A Beatles album, a red “Bernie for Burlington” button, “delicious Vermont candy” and a tape of tunes Sanders recorded himself with fellow artists from Vermont, among other goodies.
“I have met many fine mayors in the United States,” Sanders says, “but I want to say that one of the nicest mayors I’ve ever met is the mayor of Yaroslavl.”
At another point, a member of Sanders’ delegation hands a Russian woman a small American flag. “If you’re wondering what’s wrong with capitalism, it’s made in Hong Kong,” he jokes. “Sorry about that.”
Some of the footage has already gone viral after someone who works at a Chittenden County, Vermont television station posted a few minutes of the video online. Politico reported, “The clip featured a shirtless Sanders and other Americans singing ‘This Land Is Your Land’ to their hosts after relaxing in a sauna. A few minutes later, Sanders doled out the gifts to his Russian friends with a towel wrapped around his waist.” The video footage also shows Sanders sitting with his U.S. delegation at a table beneath a portrait of Vladimir Lenin, you’ll remember that he was the ruthless dictator responsible for the deaths of millions of his own people.
Politico also reported that Sanders’ goal was to develop a “sister city” relationship between Burlington, Vermont, where he was mayor, and Yarolavl, a city on the edge of the Volga River. It was in a speech he gave while in Yarolavl that Sanders said, “By encouraging citizen-to-citizen exchanges — of young people, artists and musicians, business people, public officials, and just plain ordinary citizens, we can break down the barriers and stereotypes which exist between the Soviet Union and the United States.” I guess I’d be curious to know just what barriers and supposed stereotypes old Bernie might have been talking about then, and if still feels the same way today.
Politico made the point that Sanders was worried about a nuclear war between the U.S. and the Soviet Union saying, “The video also paints a fuller picture of why Sanders ventured to the land of America’s No. 1 enemy in the midst of the Cold War, the anti-war idealism that fueled his journey, and what he found when he got there.” The news outlet also reported the video includes images of “shrines to Lenin” and shows scenes of the poverty in the Soviet Union, including people waiting in food lines and shabby housing. Both of which are something Sanders apparently still wishes to bring to America if, God forbid, Americans are stupid enough to elect him.
But look, even with all that being said I would argue that with today’s Democrat Party having now moved so far to the left it’s just this sort of revelation that could very well end up providing old Bernie with a rather sizable bump that just might allow him to pull ahead of ‘Creepy Joe’ Biden in the polls. Bernie has been unable to make much headway since proclaiming himself to be millionaire because his rather juvenile constituents hate that fact. And I find it all rather hard to fathom how it is that these two losers, one of whom is a ‘Commie’ and the other a ‘Perv’, are actually considered as being legitimate presidential contenders in the Democrat Party .
I think we can all agree that Sanders is really a “socialist” in pretty much name only. He has always been a committed supporter of Communism. He is a dyed in the wool communist, now, then and always. And I must say that I am more than a little disappointed in those of my fellow Americans who are somehow able to view someone like Bernie as being in any way fit to hold the office of president. But then I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, after all, these folks represent what has become the product of our public education system. And its our so-called institutions of ‘higher’ learning that pick up the indoctrination process where our public schools leave off.
Is anyone actually surprised by these revelations?! I think not! Will they hurt Bernie’s 2020 chances? Doubtful! The American education system has successfully managed to indoctrinate our children to the extent that they think socialism is the ‘promised land’ where everyone is equal and we all sing inspiring songs as we toil away at slave wages. Yes, while the elite continue to enrich themselves at the expense of the workers. Funny how that works! You don’t have to take my word for it, there have been numerous examples over the course of the last 100 years right up to present day, just do a little research. Yes, socialism, the first step to totalitarianism!
But let’s just cut to the chase, shall we? Democrat leadership has been closely aligned with socialists/communists for decades. Democrats have spent those very same decades in a very determined effort to rewrite history erasing those pesky historical facts and to literally whitewash their duplicity in the spread of this blight, but the facts remain. Communism robs the people of their dignity, freedom, creativity, inventiveness and their ability to worship. Bernie is little more than a cheerleader for a system of governance that crushes people’s souls. He wants unlimited power. Why else would anyone believe Communism is the way to go?
And so it’s with each passing election that this country becomes increasingly more dangerous, and it will only become more so the more we have Democrats who are able to get themselves elected. Look, we all know their agenda is one where the government: becomes in charge of what healthcare we are able to obtain, does away completely with our borders allowing in anyone who wants to come here, seeks to severely restrict, if not eliminate completely, our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, to name just a few of those things that they would seek in implement if we are ever again foolish enough to grant them the power to do so.
