Bernie Sanders Is Pro-Rape? Where’s the #MeToo Outrage?
While Bernie Sanders continues to tout his Socialist pipe-dream, his followers seem to not know or not care about Bernie Sanders’s views on rape. Ever since the #MeToo movement, the acceptable boundaries of flirting and sexual harassment has become smaller and smaller. Although allegations of decades old sexual abuse claims have brought down many powerful people in the #MeToo era, it seems Bernie Sanders is immune to the same level of scrutiny.
In 1972, Bernie Sanders wrote a filthy rape fantasy piece for now defunct “The Vermont Freeman.” For those Bernie-Bros who are quick to dismiss the previous, not even Left-leaning Snopes could deny Bernie’s rape fantasy stories. In Bernie’s sick rape story, he writes:
“A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously”
In another part of the article, he gets even more disturbing by making pedophile-like statement:
“Do you know why the newspapers with articles like ‘Girl, 12, raped by 14 men’ sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?”
Unfortunately, this perverted article was dismissed by Bernie Sanders staff in 2015 as, “dumb attempt at dark satire in an alternative publication intended to attack gender stereotypes in the 1970s” that in “no way reflects his views or record on women.”
Ironically, the same Bernie Sanders “staff” who attempted to justify their boss’s rape stories, were later accused of sexual harassment a year later in 2016. The allegations were so serious that Bernie had to give a public apology for his staff’s sexual abusive conduct (3 years later in 2019).
Is it a mere coincidence that Bernie Sanders openly wrote rape stories, only to have his political staff conduct themselves in sexual abuse a year later? If the Left weren’t such disgusting hypocrites, they would have shunned Sanders in 2015 and saved the sexual abuse victims from being victimized by his staff in 2016. Moreover, now that Sanders is running for President in 2020, one can only assume that this kind of sexual abuse continues in his campaign since no real repercussions seems to happen to Bernie Sanders when it comes to rape and/or sexual abuse allegations.
I call on all Leftists to live up to your #MeToo standards and call on Bernie Sanders to drop out of the 2020 Presidential race; force Bernie to personally acknowledge his role in the promotion of rape and sexual abuse within his campaign operation. By the Left staying silent on Bernie Sanders, it only shows that Democrats don’t give a damn about #MeToo, sexual abuse or womens’ safety in general. It seems as if the only time Democrats care about sexual abuse allegations is when they can be politically exploited, which underscores their lack of true empathy of victimization.
If you are for Bernie Sanders, then you are pro-rape and sexual abuse; period!
P.S. Bernie Sanders is such a hypocritical liar, he refuses to pay his staff the $15 an hour wage he touts on the campaign trail as the “should-be” minimum wage for America; what POS!
