Bernie Sanders’ campaign is achieving frontrunner status.
But as Sanders rises in the polls, his campaign is attracting new scrutiny.
And Bernie Sanders has a communist spy affair that has all hell breaking loose.
Bernie Sanders likes to call himself a Democratic socialist but in his heart of hearts, he is really a communist.
While in university he organized for the United Packinghouse Workers Union, which was a communist front under investigation.
He then went on to produce a documentary on revolutionary Eugene Debs who was called “America’s greatest Marxist.”
Bernie Sanders clearly wanted to try to carry out the communist ideals out while he was in power.
When he was Mayor of Burlington, Vermont, he restricted property rights, set price controls and raised property taxes, and even tried to tax a nonprofit hospital.
He also made several trips to the USSR and Cuba to help foster “goodwill.”
His goodwill went so far that he met privately with a Soviet spy who was trying to meddle in American elections.
“The documents from the Sanders archives include a letter from Soviet Embassy First Secretary Vadim Kuznetsov in March 1983, congratulating Sanders on his reelection as mayor and thanking Sanders for receiving him in Sanders’s office,” The Washington Post reported. “Kuznetsov had been in Burlington to attend a conference on nuclear disarmament at the University of Vermont a few days earlier. Neither Sanders nor conference organizers appear to have read a 1976 Time magazine article that identified Kuznetsov as a member of a ‘Soviet intelligence squad’ posing as diplomats to infiltrate U.S. politics.”
The Washington Post is kind to assume that Bernie Sanders didn’t know that Kuznetsov was a spy.
It’s just as likely that Bernie Sanders knew that he was a Soviet spy and was still willing to meet with him because of his communist sympathies.
The letter that Kuznetsov sent Sanders stated:
Dear Mr. Sanders,
Please accept my sincere congratulations on your re-election to the post of Mayor of Burlington.
I have been following with a great interest the final stage of this mayoral race which attracted a lot of coverage by the national news media.
Thank you for receiving me in your office on February 3.
With best wishes,
Democrat strategist Zac Petkanas posted the letter on Twitter and commented, “For the love of all that’s holy. The piece links to the actual letter a Soviet official sent Bernie Sanders congratulating him on getting elected. Can you IMAGINE what Trump would do with this?”
But the media gives Bernie Sanders a free pass, and it’s not fair to Americans.
Americans deserve to know whether he’s a communist that he’s been closely tied to all his adult life or a Democratic socialist like he claims to be.
Communism has killed more than 100 million people in the last century. Nazism killed 25 million.
Communism is dangerous and if Bernie Sanders is a communist, he could be the most destructive president America has ever had.
