Dunno where Sanders is getting his 'facts' from. So lets point out just how wrong Sanders is. Straight up this country was 'founded' because the colonials got tired of the British crown exploiting the colonies. In a nut shell that is why America was founded. Now Sanders like the 'good' little progressive he is goes on to parrot 7 years of political talking points to tell us again how 'racist' we all are.

Now of course Sanders entire platform is based on bigotry of his own. As everyone knows rich people are evil. They don't deserve any rights at all, and only exists to be exploited by politicians like Sanders to pay for his progressive little utopia. That's right the 14th amendment of rich follks doesn't count for much, and why yes people were are all just victims here!



SANDERS: I hope that every person in this room today understands that it is unacceptable to judge people, discriminate against people based on the color of their skin. And I will also say, that as a nation — the truth is a nation that in many ways was created, and I’m sorry to have to say this from way back, on racist principles, that’s a fact. We have come a long way as a nation. Now I know, my guess is that probably not everybody here is an admirer or a voter for Barack Obama, but the point is that in 2008, this country took a huge step forward in voting for a candidate based on his ideas and not the color of his skin Read more: dailycaller.com...


Hypocrite.

I hope everyone person that reads this thread, and has listened to what Sanders has been saying realizes what a HYPOCRITE he is.

Since it is perfectly acceptable to judge them evil rich folks, discriminate towards those rich folks, create laws, and taxes all based off of how many zero's are in their bank accounts.

Why yes people THAT IS PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE.

Oh yeah people America really took are 'huge leap foward' over the last 7 years haven't we!!

I got to 'good' little progressive and stopped reading. He did not mean why we rebelled against England and I think you know that.

You MUST defend and rebut these things.

Otherwise Sanders will get buried.

Setting up excuses for failure in advance is not acceptable.

When the phrase all men are created equal was written while people were owned how can it not be fact? I know bringing up the reality of our foundation is frowned upon it doesn't mean we shouldn't.

Being rich isn't a race, that is pretty simple and your usual red herring.

You can call him a classiest I guess but he is really just against the wealth gap that is a big factor of our pay for play politics we have.

And the point is ?

That was the same time women didn't have the 'right' to vote.

Don't here people saying how sexist I am.

The funny part here is If i had a nickle every time I have been called 'racist' I would be a 1%' er that Sanders hates so much.

Wow, that was an exaggeration at best and just deceptive and misleading at worst.

You think that maybe he was talking about the fact that some of the founders were Slave Owners??? That black slaves were literally considered to be 3/5 of a person and that was only when they weren't simply considered property and not considered to be people at all???

Also, he's not a hypocrite for going after the .01% for tax fraud either. That isn't discrimination, it's called going after criminals for tax evasion.

I know you hate and fear Sanders and you love more than anything to defend rich criminals and cheats but your case here is incredibly weak and deceptive.

I like how you also used it as a way to attack progressives though. Typical and redundant as that tactic is coming from you, I always love when you use it.

Sanders wasn't talking about 'native' Americans there now was he.

Don't hear nary a word about 'abolishing' the reservations that to this day that they still live on.

To assume Pilgrims lined up and shot the Native Americans.

Is definitely how America haters love to rewrite history...isn't it ?

Ya fine add it was sexiest too. Doesn't change your red herring. Sanders doesn't hate all 1%ers and doubt you can prove it so. Asking people to play by the same rules as others isn't really hate. You can talk against some one with out hating them.

There's absolutely nothing incorrect about what he said.

You don't think that racist ideology was a factor in the American peoples' acceptance of Manifest Destiny? Ha. I suppose you also don't believe that racist ideology was behind the justification for chattel slavery of sub-Saharan Africans either? That's a whole lot of willful ignorance you've got going.

We know it wasn't the pilgrims, they aren't to blame.

Expansionism is to blame. The white man was not happy with the land they already possessed they needed more, all of it in fact. Well almost, except the reservations, nice touch!!

For a " New Country " to come into existence i.e. founded, what was there before has to be removed i.e Native American Indians.

Unless you live side by side with Native American Indians that is. And they asked you to take their land away.

Would you really say that the pilgrims held the natives as equal people? Hating America has nothing to do with telling it how it was. America was not exceptional in its up bringing. I don't hate America at all, I hate that we felt that the states were our God given right as per manifest destiny.

That's all i have heard from Sanders.

All self professed socialist's do.




Asking people to play by the same rules as others isn't really hate.


Now that was funny. Where's the proof that them evil rich aren't.

Oh that's right for the most part all people do is take the Sanders' word for it.

Before that they took Obamas,before that the Clintons. Going all the way back to the Huey Long's, and the Roosevelt's.

In other words a POLITICIAN.
