Lifelong communist Sen. Bernie Sanders did not condemn the leftist protesters who recently harassed and intimidated his colleague Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) in a bathroom stall because he could not rebuke her politics in the prepared statement, according to a report from Axios.
Axios published an email exchange in which Sanders withheld his name from a joint statement of Senate Democrat leadership when he was barred from including a segment that criticized Sinema’s opposition to President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” program.
While Sanders did not object to any of the statement’s language condemning the leftist protester’s actions, his communications director Mike Casca asked in an email for the statement to include the following line: “While we hope Senator Sinema will change her position on prescription drug reform and support a major [budget] reconciliation bill…”
If a Republican protester had followed Sinema into a bathroom and harassed her, you can bet Sanders, Biden, and every other Democrat who supports the far-left intimidation of their colleague would be shrieking in outrage. But they’re fine with it when such harassment is directed at a colleague who refuses to fall in lockstep with their radical agenda.
