Bernie Sanders campaign releases new ‘proud to be Jewish’ video, repeats Charlottesville hoax
Bernie Sanders, who sure has a lot of anti-Semitic campaign surrogates, put out another campaign video in which he proclaims he’s proud to be Jewish. In his new video he also, like Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke in theirs, takes President Trump’s words out of context to make it sound like he was calling the neo-Nazis who congregated in Charlottesville “very fine people,” when in fact he said they and white nationalists should be “condemned totally.” But it’s a Democrat campaign video, so of course, it’s going to be misleading.
More people seemed amused, though, that Sanders even put out a “proud to be Jewish” campaign spot.

I'm very proud to be Jewish and I look forward to becoming the first Jewish president in the history of this country. pic.twitter.com/UOPvEomHNE

That kind of crap may work in Petrograd comrades but it shouldn’t work here

Sanders is as proud to be Jewish as any other goy.

Practice Judaism? No.
Marry a Jew? No.
Have Jewish children, grandchildren? No.
Support Israel? No.
Partner with anti-Semites? Yes.
Hold up Judaism as a flag for votes? Yes.
No Jew should vote for Bernie Sanders.

He’s using this now for the first time, in his 70’s, because it scores him victim points for being a minority. You can’t simply be a straight white man. That’s unacceptable to hard left Dem’s. So he’s playing this card now.

Give me a beak. Sanders is Jewish in name only. He surrounds himself with antisemitic advisors and has been outspoken in his lack of support for Israel. He's not fooling anyone with this new campaign, and as a proud Jew, there is no way I will vote for him.

Bernie stands against Israel and for PLO extremists.

Yet he aligns with anti-Semites.
Like many “Democrats,” he panders for the votes. What a disgusting hypocrite.

Proud to be Jewish? When was the last time you were in a Synagogue or shul?

Please speak out against BDS!

Yeah, get one of the squad members on your team like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Ilhan Omar to speak out against sanctions against Israel.

Yeah…except that you have Linda Sarsour and the “squad” pushing you in exchange for cabinet positions so most Jewish people are giving you a pass…

You’ll always be Jewish but never President. Sorry

Get fucked, you tired old lying Bolshevik. This guy has spent his life working against the Jews as a people—and now he wants to insulate himself from the Hamas folks he’s spent years cozying up to. https://t.co/iuAXLfxAEP
