I went to dictionary.com to find a definition for the word “pander” and it said, “a person who caters to or profits from the weaknesses or vices of others.” Merriam-Webster defined it as “to do or provide what someone wants or demands even though it is not proper, good, or reasonable.” Wikipedia presents a political definition of pandering, “the act of expressing one’s views in accordance with the likes of a group to which one is attempting to appeal.” And right next to the definitions there was a picture of one Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders — ok, that part I made up to be funny. But, ask yourself, is it really that funny? As a matter of fact, if you recall the first Democrat presidential primary debate, there seemed to be lots of pandering by panderers based on these three definitions.But all kidding aside, I must present to you a recent example of such aberrant and deceitful behavior. As reported by alternet.org, “On Wednesday, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders held a national town hall with students at George Mason University where he, among other things, pledged to remove the federal prohibition against the use of marijuana.
At one point, a Muslim student asked Sanders about the bigotry being expressed all over the country against Muslim Americans. Sanders embraced the student and brought her up on the stage.”
This is a man who will say anything — “black lives matter” and I suppose no one else’s. Sanders went into his normal rhetoric of pandering and not addressing the issue.There is no such thing as “Islamophobia.” There is no institutional hatred against Islam. Actually the term slamophobia was created andproliferated by the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Islamic terrorist funding case, the Holy Land trial. It’s a tool used to force censorship of those who speak the factual truth about the threat of Islamic terrorism and jihadism — as articulated in the Strategic Goal and Explanatory Memorandum of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America, written in 1991 by Mohammed Akhram. I just have to ask, has Bernie Sanders read the Explanatory Memorandum?
Here for your reading pleasure is Bernie’s response:
So here we have Bernie Sanders, the Islamapologist and the self-deprecating Jew who just took the horror of the Holocaust, where six million Jews were brutally and savagely murdered to achieve genocide and, in the truest spirit of moral equivalency and pandering, compared it to “Islamophobia” just to appease this young woman.
“Let me be very personal here if I may. I’m Jewish. My father’s family died in the concentration camps. I will do everything that I can to rid this country of the ugly stain of racism which has existed for far too many years. And let me tell you something. What racism is about is many many things. It is pent-up hatred, it is lashing out at people in uncontrollable ways, but it is something very different than that. For many years in this country you have had politicians, and I’m old enough to know this, who played black off against white. So they told white workers who are earning pennies an hour, you think you’re in trouble but you’re better off than the blacks who can’t drink at a water fountain or go to your school. And they told straight people, well you think you’ve got problems, but you’re off than those gay people right? And they held men against women. They played one group off against another. Rich got richer and everybody else is fighting with each other. Our job is to build a nation in which we all stand together as one people. And you are right, there is a lot of anger being generated, a lot of hatred being generated against Muslims in this country, that’s absolutely correct. There is hatred being generated against immigrants in this country. And if you stand for anything we have got to stand together and end all forms of racism, and I will lead that effort as president of the United States.”
Now, if this was a Republican presidential candidate invoking the Holocaust, one can only imagine the outrage levied against him. What do you hear in this case? Crickets. And to think, we have Jews being stabbed and Fatah leaders going on social media to encourage those attacks along with ISIS conducting beheadings, crucifixions, and rapes of Christian women — far younger than the Muslim student who made her inane complaint.You want a clear and present exhibit of political pandering? Bernie Sanders just gave it to you. And here he is seeking to be president of the United States, not to support and defend our Constitution, provide for the common defense, and protect the American people — nah, he’s going to end all forms of racism and hatred. Hey Bernie, next time liberal progressives refer to me as an Uncle Tom, sellout, Oreo, white man’s porch monkey, or house [email protected] — will you bring me up on the stage and kiss my arse as well?
And remember, it was Hillary Clinton who stated that we must “empathize” with our enemies and understand their grievances. Sanders and Clinton are the two Democrat Party frontrunners for president. I’d be ROTFLMAO except it’s no laughing matter, it’s serious. These two individuals will pander away our national security. And we know one is a certifiable liar who abandoned four Americans to die and, knowing otherwise, blamed their demise on a stupid video. Then again, we have a president who still classifies an Islamic terrorist attack on our Soldiers as “workplace violence.”
In a normal America, Bernie Sanders would just have disqualified himself as a candidate for commander-in-chief of our armed forces — sadly, these are not normal times in America. And the namesake for whom George Mason University was established would be appalled. Hey Bernie, perhaps you should have reminded that young lady of America’s history with Islamic jihadists, starting with the war with the Barbary states.
