I ran across this article on FOX News and it shows me just how desperately afraid the Right is of Bernie Sanders...

Dem Hopeful Sanders once Penned Essay on Women’s Rape Fantasy



Democratic presidential candidate Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders once penned an essay claiming that men fantasize about abusing women and women fantasize about being raped.
...
The 1972 article "Man — and Woman," published in the Vermont Freeman, displays Sanders' views on gender and sexuality at the time of its publishing.

"A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy," wrote Sanders.
"A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused."

When in comes to female fantasies, Bernie also knows all.


First, it was in 1972, before many of you were even born, so they REALLY had to do some digging! But the real kicker is that they portray this little ~500-word story as an "essay" and REALLY misconstrue it's content beyond all recognition.

The story is about how women and men's roles have changed since the days of our hunter/gatherer past, and how our roles then have continued, in a manner, to this day. It's not what FOX (bless their hearts) portrays it to be at all.

Link to Sanders' Story



In the beginning, there were strong men who killed the animals and brought home the food - and the dependent women who cooked it. No more! Only the roles remain - waiting to be shaken off.
...
And men. Men are in pain, too. They are thinking, wondering. What is it they want from a woman? Are they at fault? Are they perpetrating this man-woman situation? Are they oppressors?


But FOX makes it out to be like a sexual fantasy of Sanders and says it displays "Sanders' views on gender and sexuality"... They should have read the "essay" before writing this article... But it just goes to show that they're trying to get the jump on bashing this candidate.

Bernie Sanders - 2016!

The political attack machine will do everything in its power to character assassinate Sanders. The Big Banks will flood think tanks with cash to find a way to destroy him.

I read the whole essay, and I found it disgusting.......

1. It wasnt FOX that broke this story

2......Does it matter WHEN he did it?

3. The man is running in the Democratic party who are the supposed "paragons" of Womens Rights......and the guy pinned a rape fantasy story......

Spin it however you want.......

Slam FOX news if you want...

But the responsibility lays squarely at the feet of Bernie.....

That being said, I find Bernie Refreshing, hes a self avowed Socialist and makes no appologies for it....

I dont agree with him at all, but it is nice to have some honesty about presidential hopefuls intentions.....

With how many volunteers are lining up and the donations from individuals that are coming in I don't blame them for fearing him, Hilary has to be #ing bricks for real, most likely thinking not again.

THAT is spin. Did you read the story? It's decidedly NOT a "rape fantasy". He's telling a story of two people. Not himself, not all men and women. Just two people.

They'll do that to every candidate who has an inkling of a shot in the primaries.

This is the usual crap that comes from both sides during the election. It's certainly nothing new but it always gets portrayed as "this is how much the right/left is scared of Joe Blow..."

I think people are afraid of Fox News.

I hate to break it to some people but Sanders is no angel.

Don't know anyone afraid of Sanders he's just as old as McCain.

Does the left not have anything other than old guys?

Fox news viewers wouldn't vote for him anyway, and he certainly doesn't need them to win the Presidency.

I did a search on this and apparently it is not a fox exclusive story. CNN among others have done stories on it too.


I'm wondering why you would pin it on Fox?

Many people think Sanders is some kind of deviate.

[ He does have a strange gleam at times ]

But even so, Sanders is a bigger threat to the Progressive Left Wing Democrat consortium than any Right Wing group.

I didn't say or indicate that it was a FOX exclusive. That's simply where I saw the story.

There. I took Fox News out of the title. Happy?

I hear the crap about Fox News for years now, and yet if Fox News had so much power ?

How did we end up with Mr. Hope, and Change ?

Answer ?

Some people just love to HYPE Fox News.

...including FOX News. Personally, I've still not forgiven them for the back scratching and knee tickling they gave Obama when they were trying to convince him to do that softball sit down interview with Bill-O. FOX isn't far from what CNN was 15 years ago... it's just that the other cable networks have REALLY shifted way left in that time period.

If the right wing has its way, they will be successful in portraying him as a sexual deviant and a "radical hippie"... From the OP source:



His controversial views of male and female sexuality have little explanation, other than he was a part of a radical hippie movement back in his younger years.


LOL!

Bolds well for Bernie if they have to go back to 1972. Kind of the same way they had to go all the way back for that story on Ron Paul. and they tried to say he was racist.
