Bernie’s votes for war are in the book! (the Congressional Record)
“The left is increasingly coming to the understanding that although Sanders has some advantages in his difference over others in his party on domestic policy, he’s always been hawkish on foreign policy. Biederman described Sanders as discarding a progressive worldview in exchange for a better vision at home.”[Foreign policy is] not a giant priority for him, but because American liberals default to endless war, that’s what he defaults to,” Biederman explained.”
“Sanders did some good by exposing the country to left wing politics and positions. But the “Independent” Senator from Vermont is just another Democrat and he’s starting to use his influence to corrupt the movement. It’s time to say goodbye to Bernie—and to his hanger-ons like Tulsi Gabbard and Tim Canova—before it’s too late and the energy of the left is subsumed into the war machine to provide alternative philosophical reasoning for the perpetuation of endless conflict.”
“In defending Israeli attacks on Gaza, Bernie Sanders said “you have situation where Hamas is sending missiles into Israel,” adding that those rockets are often originating from populated areas. As members of his audience began to shout out their opposition to his statements, Sanders responded, “Excuse me! Shut up! You don’t have the microphone.”
“Bernie Sanders knows that our illegal drones kill an average of 50 innocents per strike, but he wants to continue this program.
And that’s the bottom line for many liberals. As long as Bernie gives them a bigger piece of the American Empire’s pie they are fine with him being pro-war.
Bernie Sanders Rejects Syria No-Fly Zone, Backs Airstrikes
The United States has been bombing targets in Syria, including the Islamic State and al-Qaida affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, since September 2014. Those strikes have reportedly killed at least 240 civilians. Bernie is OK with this.
In spite of his claims of being antiwar, Sander’s “hawkish” support of Clinton’s military actions in the 1999 Kosovo War caused one of his advisers to quit. When antiwar activists occupied Sanders’ office in 1999 because of that support of Clinton’s war policies, he had them arrested.
In August of 2016, Bernie Sanders said he would not end U.S. drone strikes in countries such as Pakistan and Hemen, arguing such strikes must be deployed “selectively and effectively.”
