Be accurate. Bernie talks about helping others. Be accurate. Be honest.

That's right, Neo. Anti-science and pro-war crimes. Pandering to the most ignorant.

I say it like it is.



The only thing your saying is demagoguery.

I am very well aware of Sanders background, as I am with all the candidates running for the presidential seat, but he is a self appointed Socialist democrat, As history points out, this will never sit well with the establishment in this nation, when we all know that America is run by a corporate environment.

Sanders will never get away with the truth nature of a Socialist state in the US.

His dream for America is just that a dream.

Beside that I find him to old for president, his legacy will be obscure.

Sounds like despite his own financial position, he cares about others. He recognizes the problems. You have to first imagine empathy.... I know it's hard.

Agreed. His whole point was about institutional racism, not that white people have never suffered being poor. Context people!

I find it humorous that Trump can say things like "Mexico is sending us all their rapists and murderers", and his supporters defend it by saying we are taking it out of context, but when Bernie says something, context goes out the win-dow.


It is amazing, isn't it?

It really does show you how afraid people are of Bernie -- afraid that he is actually winning over the hearts and minds of normal, average, thinking Americans.

So long as they are not white, and that is damned racist.

Bull and crap.

Justice is suppose to be BLIND.

A country where people are not judged by the color of their skin, or how many guns they own, or how many rounds it can fire at the squeeze of the trigger, or by how many zero's are in their bank accounts.

Sanders doesn't give a snip about anyone else but his own DELUSIONS.

No, no candidate will be able to change the status Quo in this nation, too late for that without a social uprising.

But he can do a lot of damage as all presidents do with the power of their mighty pen.

Whenever I see Bernie I see Carter type of president, no that bad but neither that great.

Hillary TALKS about helping others. Honest. Accurate.
ALL politicians TALK about helping others. Honest. Accurate.
That's how they get elected...Then they get rich.

No, neo... I'm saying anti-science and pro war crimes. That's the ignorant right. Pro-war crime will get you thunderous applause. Those kinds of horrible statements by Trump don't even need to be taken out of context like this pathetic attempt at a Bernie quote. The stuff Drumpf says should disqualify him, but instead it shoots him to the top, because republican voters have gone full-ignorant. They look stupid and they know the world thinks their stupid. That's why say things like "the left think they're so smart"... It's because the right knows on some level, they are embarrassed by their ignorance. They don't like being stupid, but the hatred tastes too good to deny. It's their choice. It's their thunderous applause.

I say it like it is.

Really? That's some admirable mental gymnastics. I'm misleading people as to what he said by posting what he actually said in it's entirety instead of one sentence from a very large statement? If you feel patronized by the truth perhaps you need to dance with the truth more often.

Yes there is! Video of what he said from start to finish! Go now and watch it and let the truth set you free! But you won't do that. Because the only part you care about is that one sentence. Because it confirms and massages your prejudices against Bernie Sanders.

According to a stunning Fusion investigation, 80 percent of women and girls crossing into the U.S. by way of Mexico are raped during their journey. That’s up from a previous estimate of 60 percent, according to an Amnesty International report.

while many of these girls are fleeing their homes because of fears of being sexually assaulted, according to the UNHCR, they are still meeting that same fate on their journey to freedom.

Rape can be perpetrated by anyone along the way, including guides, fellow migrants, bandits or government officials, according to Fusion. Sometimes sex is used as a form of payment, when women and girls don’t have money to pay bribes.
www.huffingtonpost.com...

Often, their rapist is coming across the border with them illegally. Now, this is fact. 8 out of every 10 women coming across the border have been raped en-route.

Are we getting Mexico's doctors and lawyers coming across the border illegally? or are we getting many of their rapists, drug dealers, criminals?

Statistics show we are getting the criminals more than we are getting the educated doctors and lawyer types. That is fact. So what Trump said is indisputable fact based on statistics.

It is NOT fact that white Americans have never known poverty in this country.

Who do you think I am going with for speaking truth?

And I said LIKE Lybia. Benghazi for example where it was a STATE sanctioned gun running operation or other things like MANPADS.

Like ARMING terrorists in Syria trying to over throw Assad.

Like Fast and Furious arming Mexican DRUG CARTELS.

Go ahead and point that finger at the RIGHT, but if your actually sitting there thinking the LEFT is 'better'.

That is as laughable as it gets.

You're off on a wild tangent.

Science has zero to do with Sanders' race bait comments.

Cuba did the same thing back in 1980, when Castro opened his jails and mental institutions so they could leave the country to come to the US as a protest.

Let's be real:

"Rape can be perpetrated by anyone along the way, including guides, fellow migrants, bandits or government officials, according to Fusion. Sometimes sex is used as a form of payment, when women and girls don’t have money to pay bribes."

Does it say most of the people entering the country are rapists? No. It says most of the women coming from Central America are raped along the way.... It's sad.

Why can't ALL Sanders supporters just admit...'Yup, Bernie said something stupid; he was pandering to African Americans to get votes...but, he's a politician, struggling in a desperate campaign...and he's only human. I forgive him and he still gets my vote, because he is a better person than Hillary."?
