You don't have to agree with him, but it's undeniable that from the spectrum of american politics, he is clearly a bonafide progressive who battled the powers that be through his life.

from the spectrum of american politics, he is

right about some things but wrong about Islam. Like too many on the "left," he draws the wrong lesson from the Nazis, forgetting why so many Muslims supported the Nazis. I love Bernie, but he and others who embrace Islam remind me of Ernst Roehm, whom the Nazis used and then killed, while those who speak accurately about Islam remind me of Hans Litten. Embracing Islam may be the "progress" some people are looking for, but it is not the progress most of us should be looking for.

It isn't paranoia if they are really out to get you. If they say expressly that they are personally commanded to kill you and your family and your friends, then you should not want them getting anywhere near you. London is in the process of electing most likely a Muslim mayor, even as surveys show that between 20% and 40% of British Muslims want Sharia, which commands the death penalty for blasphemers, unbelievers, apostates, and anybody gay, and demands the violent subjugation of Christians (including the Queen) and Jews. I wish Bernie would denounce Islam instead of embracing it.

It's nice that Bernie has such a concern for minority issues and fringe issues...

When does he start focusing on the problems affecting the MAJORITY of the population??

He needs to focus on issues that affect the people who are PAYING the bills, not the ones COLLECTING government handouts..

I'm quite sure a lot of minorities are making more money, and paying more taxes than a moron loser like you, ironvagina. But, there your racist meme is anyways!

Uh, implying that minorities are collecting government handouts and not paying the bills?
