Video: Socialist Bernie Sanders promises ‘war’ on ‘white nationalism and racism’ as president

While speaking at the Young Leader’s Conference in Atlanta on Saturday, socialist Bernie Sanders promised that if elected to the White House in 2020, he would “go to war” with white nationalism and racism.

“I’m Jewish. My family came from Poland. My father’s whole family was wiped out by Hitler and his white nationalism. Too many people have fought over the years. Too many people have died against racism to let it resurface and flourish in America,” he said.

“We will go to war with nationalism and racism in every aspect of our lives,” he added.

“When we combat white nationalism, and when we combat racism, we are going to use all the laws in our power,” he further said.

Sanders also made it clear that he would even use executive orders in his “war” on so-called “white nationalism.”

Here’s video of his comments as posted to Twitter:

Google, by the way, defines “nationalism” as, “identification with one’s own nation and support for its interests, especially to the exclusion or detriment of the interests of other nations.”  And remember, Google is certainly no friend of the right

Moreover, Google says “patriotism” is synonymous with “nationalism.”  Hmmm…

So, using Google’s definition, one could reasonably argue that Bernie Sanders intends to go to war against white people who happen to be patriotic to the United States.

The response on Twitter?  You guessed it:

It sure sounds like it to us.

That’s probably much closer to the truth than anyone really knows.

Heh…

One person told Sanders:

Something tells me that a bunch of people would do the same.

Of course not.

Definitely food for thought.

Then there was this very salient point, made in the form of a question:

It sure sounds that way to us.

What concerns us is the increasingly violent rhetoric coming from leftists like Sanders, which almost always translates to violent actions by left-wing domestic terror groups like Antifa, which made itself known yet again in the streets of Portland this weekend.

We can’t help but wonder — how high does Sanders want the body count to be in his “war” on white nationalism?  We won’t hold our breath waiting for an answer.
