The video below is a great example of what happens when a politician has to pander to the far left. The transcript and video below of Bernie Sanders answering a question about cutting aid to Israel shows that Sanders is straddling the fence between support for Palestine and Israel:
SANDERS WAS ASKED: “You’ve been very critical of Bibi Netanyahu and the Israeli government. We spent a few billion dollars on aid to Israel. Would you ever consider using that aid as leverage to get the Israeli government to act differently?”
SANDERS REPLIED: “Absolutely. Absolutely. I mean, we are giving large sums of money. Look — I mean, let me back it up before the tweets start flowing in. I lived in Israel. Actually, I worked in the kibbutz for a number of months. I have family in Israel. I am Jewish. I am not anti-Israel, okay? I believe that the people of Israel have absolutely the right to live in peace, independence and security. End of discussion.
“That is what I fervently believe. But I think what has happened is in recent years under Netanyahu you have an extreme right-wing government with many racist tendencies.” – Bernie Sanders

The left is becoming more and more anti-Semitic and showing it.
It’s difficult to believe that Bernie Sanders really means what he’s saying!
