Bernie Sanders Cites Racism to Explain Progressive Defeats
National Review ^ | November 8, 2018 | Jack Crowe

Posted on 11/08/2018 9:59:46 AM PST by C19fan

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont says the reluctance of white voters to support minority candidates explains the defeat of a number of a highly touted progressive candidates in Tuesday’s midterms.

“I think you know there are a lot of white folks out there who are not necessarily racist who felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African-American,” Sanders told The Daily Beast in an interview published Thursday. “I think next time around by the way it will be a lot easier for them to do that.”

Does Bernie not comprehend he has just called the majority of the USA a racist?

Oh, OF COURSE, Bernie cites ‘racism’.....certainly wouldn’t want to actually blame the person who lost the race, would we? Has someone asked him if he feels the same about John James losing in Michigan? I didn’t think so.........

Whatever.

When everyone’s saying the same thing, soon enough no one hears it.

Maybe if the “African” Americans in question weren’t Marxists, people would be more inclined to vote for them.

Hey Bernie, were voters racist for electing this person to Congress?

We white males were told very forcefully and clearly to “Just shut up.”

Question: Is it migrating NY liberals or what that causes a state of the union to vote for the anti-American socialist Sanders for US Senator -—again?

White perfidy and white-hate have become foundational concepts of Leftist-Democratic ideology.

Listen up Whites.

It doesn’t matter what happens.

It’s your fault.

Whites are genetically evil and need to be Erased and Replaced.

We hate Whites.

Sincerely,

The Entire Left

I know the left speaks in a different language with words that sound like English words but have different meanings.

But sometimes it seems like they used a Mad Libs page with random people filling in different words - regardless of the definitions, the sentences don’t make sense.

So, can we call the Democrats racist if they don’t support a black GOP candidate in New Hampshire? Eddie Edwards, who would have been the first black congressional representative in history, lost this year. Two years ago, James Lawrence, a black GOP from the other district, also lost.
