HuffPo writer claims only way to defeat ISIS is to elect socialist Bernie Sanders

Bernie SandersIn an article published Monday at the Huffington Post, H.A. Goodman, a columnist whose work is published in a variety of liberal outlets including published in The Cleveland Plain Dealer, The Baltimore Sun, The Hill and the far-left Salon, argued that the only way to defeat ISIS is to elect socialist Bernie Sanders.

“Bernie Sanders says ‘I’ll be damned’ if the U.S. leads the fight against ISIS and Americans are sent back to never-ending quagmires. I explain in this YouTube segment that only Bernie Sanders, not Clinton or Trump, will refrain from sending more Americans back to failed counterinsurgency wars in the Middle East,” he wrote in an article headlined, “The Only Way to Destroy ISIS Is With a Bernie Sanders Presidency.”

He continued: “Because of his work as chairman of the Senate Veterans Committee, Sanders witnessed how the perpetual wars espoused by Bush, and Democrats like Clinton, continue to affect American soldier and their families. For this reason, he recently won the Congressional Award from the Veterans of Foreign Wars.”

He added:

In addition, Sanders understands how ISIS and other groups wage war. The primary goal of groups like ISIS is to lure America into asymmetric wars that mitigate our military advantages; submarines and nuclear weapons can’t defeat IEDs or insurgents hiding in apartment buildings. The willingness of Bernie Sanders to move beyond the traditional American paradigm of continual war, in the hopes of ending continual terror, is why Sanders has the right formula to defeat ISIS.

After the horrific attacks in Paris, Sanders explained that “the fight against ISIS is a struggle for the soul of Islam, and countering violent extremism and destroying ISIS must be done primarily by Muslim nations.” While Hillary Clinton echoed the same talking points (in a slightly less bellicose tone) as Trump, Carson, and Republicans, Sanders focused on long term strategy.

Translation: Sanders won’t do a damn thing against ISIS.  Instead, he’d tax us all to death to pay for free stuff and expect Saudi Arabia to defend us from the very people he would probably let in the country anyway.

This is beyond delusional, but it’s to be expected from the low-information left.

After all, these are the same kind of people who marched in support of child-killing ISIS and genocide and tell us that Muslims “have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”  If these people were around during World War II, the Third Reich would still be in existence and still be in control of much of Europe while telling us Nazis have nothing to do with Nazism.

This is the reason why every single Democrat in the country needs to be soundly defeated next November.  If given the reins of power, they’ll complete the destruction of America Obama started in 2009.
