Once again, the party of treason is leading the fight not against those who are waging a holy war to destroy us, but against those who oppose jihad terror.
“Let me be very personal if I might. I’m Jewish, my father’s family died in concentration camps,” Sanders said. “I will do everything that I can to rid this country of the ugly stain of racism that has existed for far too many years.”
It’s ironic that Sanders would invoke the Holocaust in saying that he would fight against “Islamophobia,” since during World War II, the Islamic world aligned with Hitler. Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and effectively the leader of the Muslim world, raised Muslim armies for Hitler, waged war on behalf of the Nazis in Iraq, and conducted pogroms against the Palestinian Jews in the British Mandate of Palestine.
It also bears mentioning that the Muslim world never apologized for its role in the Holocaust. Instead, it continued to pursue Hitler’s objectives, and Mein Kampf has for years been a perpetual bestseller in Egypt, Turkey and elsewhere among Muslims.
“Sanders,” according to The Hill, “chronicled racism and discrimination’s historical roots in American culture, arguing that groups have always tried to play one group off against each other.”
Playing one group against another? Is that how he describes the war waged by the Axis Powers against the Allied Powers during World War II? And as for today, the only groups that are trying to play one group against another are Islamic groups such as the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which works energetically to stigmatize legitimate resistance to jihad terror as “Islamophobia.”
Sanders also said: “Our job is to build a nation in which we all stand together as one. There is a lot of anger being generated, hatred being generated against Muslims in this country, that is absolutely correct. There is hatred being generated against immigrants in this country.” This is absolutely untrue. The anger is against the jihad that is being waged against the United States, as well as against non-Muslim minorities in Muslim countries.
“There are some out there who think, ‘Well, students and young people are apathetic, they won’t get involved, they are busy partying and so forth,’” said Sanders. No, there are those who rightly think that students in colleges, and young people in general, are being relentlessly indoctrinated with uber-leftist/Islamic propaganda.
Sanders concluded: “What you are saying here tonight is that you love your country and you are going to fight as hard as you can to make this the country we know it can be.” If he were really serious about that, he would have called upon those students to defend Constitutional principles against sharia encroachment. He would have stood up for the freedom of speech and the equality of rights of women and non-Muslims – all denied under sharia. He would have explained to them that it is not “Islamophobia” or “racism” to defend freedom from those who would impose sharia here, and not improper to ask a Muslim presidential candidate to renounce the aspects of sharia that are incompatible with Constitutional freedoms.
Instead, under the guise of rejecting “racism,” Bernie Sanders and his ilk are opening the door to the demise of those freedoms.
