2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders said Friday that “we have a racist society from top to bottom.” The Vermont senator spoke Friday evening at ABC’s Democratic debate in New Hampshire, where he discussed racism in the United States as former Vice President Joe Biden and billionaire Tom Steyer argued over who has more support from black voters. “We have a racist society from top to bottom,” Sanders said, adding that this “racist society” is “impacting health care, housing, criminal justice, education — you name it.”

Someone should ask the Red Geezer what he personally has done to remedy the fact that Vermont is one of, if not THE whitest state in the Union. Does he support segregation yesterday, today and forever?

I watched 2, 3-min segments of the debate last night. Each time I saw Sanders, and every time he is on TV in a sound bite, he is ranting and yelling. He gets more Communist-looking every day.

There is one way to take care of that and it is to ensure that no one votes for a supposed- democrat.

Very interesting...a bunch of old. millionaire white guys talking about how unfair and racist the country that made them millionaires is. Unfortunately the Democrat Party has pretty much dumped all the black candidates who might have confirmed their assertion. Oh wait. They DID confirm their assertion. As least in the Democrat Party.

I had no idea that this ol' commie was the ONLY person in the country that wasn't racist. Whatta guy! So, the only way to fix this is to dump all the laws of the land and open the prison gates, right Comrade? Wonder if any democrats or Independents are sick and tired of being called RACIST by this gang of nutjobs and their lapdogs in the so-called media?

They were talking about themselves and they are all racist. They have promised the African American people everything under the sun for the last 30 years. Now Trump comes along and his policies are really making a difference in their lives and community. He is reaching out to them for their votes keeping his promises and doing the right things. It is apparent the Democrats want to keep the blacks on drugs, un-educated, and on food stamps so they can control their votes. It's way past time for the blacks to leave the Democrat cesspool of corruption and make better lives for them and future generations to come.

America does have racial problems. Even more so after the Obama 8 year fiasco. The problem with Bernie and the democrats is that they blame the whole racial problem on whites. The fact is blacks are even more racist than those they charge with being racist. It's a two way street that the Democrats have hung a ONE WAY sign on.

As long as we evaluate outcomes based on race, there is no way to NOT have a racial society. What you are asking people to do when you evaluate based upon race is to cease to compete. People compete... period. When the rules of the competition include issues of RACE... then RACE becomes front a center. When RACE is front and center... lines are drawn and battles are inevitable. So... WHO is it that keeps reminding us of RACE? Democrats. Always democrats. How many laws are on the books that deal with outcomes based on density of eyebrows? Want to start a new set of battles? Enact laws that require all employers have a certain number of people within each range of eyebrow density. If we were to ever live in a world in which RACE was not an issue... it will be because RACE is not a topic.

Anytime your answer is Government Handouts, you don't believe that All People Were Created Equal. Other wise you wouldn't (still) be trying to balance the scales. Subsidizing Poverty creates more Poverty, and keeps people of all colors/races in subservience.

From ''top to bottom'' would include democrats! Bernie's supporters might want to take issue with that, providing they are not democrats. As we know, the democrat party is the historical party of rabid racism. It includes the cities of our northern states, where blacks are kept in poor ghettos, denied good education, made dependent on the democrat race hustlers, and permitted to live in a violent environment. Democrat controlled cities, where the hypocrites preach to everyone else while their cities decay.

Race is like a scab. As we grow and learn, we realize that picking at scabs retards the healing process and may even lead to infection, so we refrain from picking - even though there's an urge. As is true of many issues, liberals never let common sense and life experience apply to their worldview. They keep picking at the scab - either because they remain ignorant or are compelled by the desire to show the world how wounded they are. The only way to eliminate racism is leave it alone and let it finish healing.

So according to him; all of us who work in "the system" doctors, nurses, teachers, police, real estate agents, builders,plumbers, electricians, lawyers, juries, judges courts...because, even if he doesn't realize it, that IS what he's saying. He can't get away with calling "the system" evil and racist without impugning those of us who make up "the system". Yet, he excuses himself, even though he is a rich white man who, for almost 30 years, has been a Congressman and Senator in the very government that oversees the evil racist "system" that he is bemoaning. Yet, according to him HE is a pure and the wind-driven snow and is annointed to be our collective conscience and point out all of OUR shortcomings only so that he can heal us. So, SENATOR Sanders should remember that when he points an accusatory finger at others he needs to recognize the he is pointing three fingers back at himself.

They are cutting their own throats with this. The overwhelming majority of Americans know that they are not racist, and that most "racism" today is against whites, as blacks and Hispanics get special treatment. This BS story not only doesn't help them, it hurts them, shows up them as total liars.

Of course such a statement cannot be wrong. Still Sen. Sanders certainly knows this is misleading. Society— as such— is made of every social strata by definition; ergo some people in it— somewhere— are not living up to the highest civic ideals. The problem is an electorate unlettered and unreasoning, and multiple subcultures, emotionally-charged by a media culture that’s passionately emotive, and lacking— in some people’s opinions— adequate sang froid as to how their greater societal cohort may regard their chosen or biologically inevitable separateness, worked up about denial of their rights and the world’s indifference to their harm. Such claims are never false; or rather are so value-charged that no rhetoric could do justice in expressing their truths. Life terribly unfair. One need not put up with real oppression. On the other hand in a pluralistic society one must put up with every disagreement. That’s the deal.

I didn't know there was a socialist debate on Friday but witnessed sound bites on Fox and for the life of me I saw people struggling for identity. The 'Red Geeze' was flaming with Joe Biden wishing he was home eating Jello. I grew up in the deep south and never gave race a second thought neither did any of my black friends. After Obama hit the scene things changed when the real racist came out of the closets. Now at my older age lets just say I'm not racist but more cautious about some people of any color. The Red Geezer gets more frantic every time I see him he must think he's Lenin standing in the Russian square during the Revolution. Maybe the Red Geeze watched too many re-runs of Dr. Zhivago and longs for those days. Que Laura's theme.

I had the unfortunate experience of being on college campuses in the late 60's. I saw hundreds of people like Bernie. He looks pathetically quaint now but they were very violent and ugly then. In their hearts many remain as simple-minded and reactionary as ever. I don't know that Bernie has ever accomplished anything of note besides accumulating personal wealth. His wife is a gonef who wrecked a college. The thing is . . . if he's the nominee and Trump takes 48 or 49 states it will make no difference whatsoever. Wait a few years and the dims will nominate someone just as wrong and just as silly.

No country in the WORLD has more ethnic identities living under one flag than right here. Obviously, these Demonrats are still living in the 1950's and still believe the hype foisted on the American psyche by the leftist rags and TV reporters.

Bernie says the country is racist from top to bottom. I guess he excludes himself because he is perfect. He must be including blacks, native Americans, Hispanics, Asians, etc. as racists. Wow! He insults me, having never met me, and wants me to recognize him as leader. The term racist is as old and worn-out as Bernie. Get a life, Bernie! He is the crabby old guy living on the corner yelling at the kids to get off his grass.

Those are Hall of Fame numbers. But the player known as “Mr. Hustle” has never been inducted into Cooperstown because of a scandal that marred his post-player career. In 1989, three years after his retirement, Rose was kicked out of baseball amid accusations that he bet on baseball games while playing for and managing the Cincinnati Reds.

Joe Biden brought his “No Malarkey” tour to a New Hampshire debate stage on Friday night. But in promising to tell the truth, he accidentally exposed his own doleful (or I should say, Bob Dole-ful) prospects in Tuesday’s opening-gun primary. In his first words of the debate—the moment when candidates are usually the most scripted—Biden confessed, “I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here.” It was a novel campaign strategy; few candidates ever say, “Vote for me because I’m going to lose here.” If his comments were a brief misstep in an otherwise smooth debate, it would have been one thing.

The 30-year-old was asked by one of her followers to discuss the benefits of a shorter work week when she misspoke and referred to 'Milton Keynes'. Ocasio-Cortez later said she had confused a British economist, John Maynard Keynes, with Milton Friedman, who won the 1976 Nobel Prize. John Maynard Keynes—who she intended to refer to—theorized that government spending was linked to economic growth. He was an advocate for increased government expenditures

Morning Joe regular Donny Deutsch claimed on Friday that Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s decline in popularity over the past couple of months is due to her being strident and unlikable—all while making sure everyone knew he wasn’t peddling a sexist trope. Following her third-place finish in the Iowa caucuses and polls currently showing her lagging ahead of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough asked Vice correspondent Shawna Thomas what may be behind Warren’s “precipitous decline over the past two months.” “You know, just two months ago we were talking about what a stellar campaign she had

Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to jokingly insult a New Hampshire student Sunday, calling her a “lying dog-faced pony soldier” at a Hampton Beach event. Biden was reportedly responding to a question about his campaign’s lackluster performance in the Iowa caucuses and how he planned to forge a path forward, especially if he did not do well in New Hampshire’s primary.(Snip) “A young woman asks Biden ‘How do you explain the performance in Iowa and why should the voters believe that you can win a national election?’ Biden’s response: ‘You ever been to a caucus?’ Woman says yes. Biden: ‘No you haven’t. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier,’”

I see that various pundits are competing to write the political epitaph for Joe ‘son-of-a-bitch‘ Biden. That’s entirely understandable. It’s been clear for some time that Biden is on the threshold of senility, and it is only my charitable disposition that prevents me from speculating about which side of the threshold he occupies. And then there was the desolation wrought by the Democrats’ impeachment entertainment. From the start, it was clear that the chief casualty of that amateur theatrics was going to be Joe Biden and his sniff, sniff, sniffing son Hunter. Everyone who is not Bill Kristol understood that the bullet of that purely partisan hit job would miss President Trump.

The president’s fiscal 2021 budget will not include funding for the licensing of Nevada’s Yucca Mountain as a nuclear waste repository, a senior administration official confirmed to CQ Roll Call on Thursday. President Donald Trump tweeted earlier what appeared to be a rejection of the long-debated plans for the federal site about 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, an abrupt reversal of his administration’s policy. “Nevada, I hear you on Yucca Mountain and my Administration will RESPECT you! Congress and previous Administrations have long failed to find lasting solutions — my Administration is committed to exploring innovative approaches — I’m confident we can get it done!” the president tweeted Thursday evening.

Immigration experts and House Republicans are balking at the New Way Forward Act, a Democratic bill that is being described as an embrace of “open borders” and likely to be the most “radical” legislation ever introduced in history. Democratic Illinois Rep. Jesús García, along with several other progressive House members, introduced the New Way Forward Act in December 2019, to seemingly little fanfare. The bill, among many things, calls for the decriminalization of illegal immigration, would make it more difficult to deport convicted criminal aliens, empower immigration judges to nullify deportation orders, and also calls for the return of previously deported illegal aliens.
