Socialist Bernie Sanders, is not one to hold back. He usually always speaks his mind. In a recent interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Sanders tried his best to dodge and weave when it came to a question about protesters. So what was the question that Sanders tried to avoid? Should protesters harass public officials? Where is the line?
Sanders’s answer did not specify he just claimed “he was very strongly in favor of mobilizing the American people.”
The closest he came to answering was just a personal opinion.
“I’m not a great fan of being rude or disrupting activities,” Sanders added.
“I am very strongly in favor of mobilizing the American people to stand up and fight for economic justice and social justice and racial and environmental justice, and I think we have to mobilize people,” Sanders told Tapper.
“If you are out there and you’re sick and tired of what’s going on, of the very rich getting richer while the middle class continues to struggle, then you are going to have to not only get out and vote but you’re going to have to get your friends and your families to vote,” Sanders continued, venturing far from the topic of the original question.
So you can tell Sanders didn’t want to discourage any potential voters. So instead of addressing the behavior of these protesters, he wants more unruly protesters. This is something both sides of the aisle should address. Both parties should be for peaceful protest and condemn violence and harassing behavior. It’s only common decency.
But I guess Sanders’s isn’t interested in keeping the peace or the adage ‘do one to others.’

“A number of contenders for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination have either ignored or encouraged leftist rhetoric. Last week, both Hillary Clinton and former Attorney General Eric Holder appeared to approve of more aggressive protesting tactics, even though the strategy hasn’t worked well for the Democratic Party. Following a wave of dramatic anti-Brett Kavanaugh demonstrations, Democrats skidded in midterm polls, falling behind in several key Senate races.”
