As the old saying goes, “I thought you were crazy… but I can clearly see you’re nuts.”
This proves truer for Bernie Sanders with every passing day.
Bernie may have just stepped over the line and served up the most disgusting piece of socialistic utopianism we’ve ever seen…
And it may be too far Left for even the most radical Leftists to swallow.
His other ideas – Medicaid for all, free college, and a $15 minimum wage – were ridiculous, but they weren’t as blatantly detrimental to Americans the way this most recent policy is…
And it’s even got people in the DNC – the party from which he’s trying to receive the presidential nomination – shaking their heads in disbelief.
What does Crazy Ol’ Uncle Bernie want to do?
He wants to BAN deportations for illegal immigrants across the board.
Speaking to Latino Leftists, Bernie said, “We are going to end the ICE raids that are terrorizing communities all across this country. We are going to impose a moratorium on deportations… and there are some things that a president can do with executive orders and some things you can’t.”
End ICE raids…
That alone is ridiculous, seeing as these men and women mostly target criminal illegals, not the ones that are trying to fly under the radar.
Bernie Doesn’t Understand ICE’s Role
ICE mostly wants the people who are actively committing crimes against the American people and getting away with it.
But Bernie doesn’t seem to think that…
Bernie seems to think that ICE agents are like the Bogeyman – hiding in bushes and closets, looking to take out any illegal immigrant they come across.
They aren’t by, the way…
That’s not the job that’s most important to them.
Of course, a ban on deportations means that the illegals that steal, assault, and murder won’t be sent back to their home countries– it just means they’ll be prisoners here, completely wasting American tax dollars in prison as we give them “three hots and a cot”.
And in case you thought that Bernie only said this to play to the Latino crowd he was speaking to, he took to Twitter the next day and doubled down on the statement, saying…
“We must treat undocumented people with dignity. When we are in the White House, we will end the ICE raids which are terrorizing communities all across this country and impose a moratorium on deportations.”
An official in his campaign CONFIRMED this “banning deportations” position is new for Crazy Ol’ Uncle Bernie – probably to combat his Latino fellow DNC presidential hopeful Julian Castro.
However, this sentiment is NOT being echoed throughout the rest of the party, and some are afraid that this kind of position is TOO extreme for public consumption.
Dissent In The Ranks
One of the more vocal opposers of this new policy is Democrat Jeh Johnson, the former Homeland Security secretary under Barack Obama. In an interview, Johnson said, “I’m a Democrat. I’m a loyal Democrat. I want to see us win in 2020, but to do that, we’ve got to appeal to a wide the consensus out there on immigration and other issues.”
Meaning he sees this EXACTLY as the Right sees it: way too radical to be accepted. And Jeh isn’t the only Dem voicing his displeasure.
This divide is interesting…
As the Democrat candidates try to out-Left each other, it seems that Bernie has found a way to pull ahead. However, in doing so, he may have just gotten left behind.
Bye Bye, Uncle Bernie…
You had a good run – but you’re too crazy to be given the keys to the White House.
You’ll have to enjoy one of your OTHER three homes that your millions of dollars have bought you.
Man, Bernie is GREAT at talking about being a socialist…
But TERRIBLE at actually being one.
