When will socialist Democrat Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) be held accountable by the media for his own revolutionary and hateful rhetoric?
“Not Donald Trump, not anyone else will be successful in dividing us based on race or our country of origin,” says Sanders. Meredith Warren, a Republican political analyst and consultant, counters: “But Sanders should take a long look in the mirror. Both he and many of his Democratic cohort, including Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, are fiercely pushing a campaign message specifically intended to divide America along different lines—economic ones.”
Warren, a graduate of Boston University’s College of Communication, where she majored in broadcast journalism, should be congratulated for drawing attention to the media’s double standard.
On one occasion, during an appearance on Iowa public television, Sanders was asked about promoting class warfare. He turned the question around and insisted that class warfare was being waged by the rich against the middle class and the poor.
The problem for Sanders is that his political philosophy is ultimately based on the notion of the elimination of the bourgeoisie—the middle-class owners of property—as set forth in the Manifesto of the Communist Party, written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. “This person must indeed, be swept out of the way, and made impossible,” it says. This is the theory of class warfare.
