Ask anyone about kooky socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders and most will agree he’s a few french fries short of a Happy Meal.As it turns out, his wife is also on board the crazy train, and her latest remarks about Iran are all the proof you need.
According to Mrs. Sanders, the U.S. should start taking notes on how to run an electoral system from the nation that often wishes all of us death.The Daily Wire is reporting:
Bernie Sanders’ wife Jane, the same woman who as president of Burlington College took out $10 million in loans on behalf of the college which it couldn’t repay, but still managed to get a $200,000 severance package for herself one year later, has decided that the United States’ electoral system should be modeled after Iran’s.
Really.Sanders responded to this tweet:
Voter turnout in Iran was 70%.
High participation among the young. The worldly & moderate candidate prevailed with ease.
Lesson for the US!

Iranians show the world how it's done. https://t.co/f3gQyhL4Va— Jane O'Meara Sanders (@janeosanders) May 20, 2017
The supposed “moderate” candidate that “won with ease” was President Hassan Rouhani, who was reelected after having served as president since 2013.And just how “moderate” is Rouhani?
Just before he was inaugurated in 2013, Rouhani had this to say about Israel: “The Zionist regime has been a wound on the body of the Islamic world for years and the wound should be removed.”
In 2015 Rouhani blustered, “The slogan ‘Death to America’ is backed by reason and wisdom. It goes without saying that the slogan does not mean death to the American nation; this slogan means death to the United States policies, death to arrogance.”
One has to wonder what was going through Sanders’ mind when she decided to praise a nation that routinely calls for the utter destruction of her homeland, and the murder of its people?
There’s nothing praiseworthy about the systemic oppression so widespread in Islamic countries like Iran, and the proof is in the pudding.
Look how technologically far behind Iran is from other civilized nations. There’s no innovation, no advancement in culture, art, or business…because there’s no freedom.
Why would we want to bring such an awful system here? Time for liberals to get a clue.
