Bernie Sanders makes a shocking announcement that has even Democrats anxious

Election season is ramping up, and things are moving along. But there is still time for all of that to change.

And Bernie Sanders has made a shocking announcement that has even Democrats anxious.

Bernie Sanders is one of the most Radical politicians in the modern world of American politics.

His proposed policies, his ideologies, and his public opinions make even some of the most Left-leaning politicians seem moderate.

Recently, one major issue that even the most Radical Democrats have been arguing about amongst themselves is the conflict in Israel.

Even though Israel was horrifically attacked in an act of terror, the Left seems to be obsessed with the idea that Israel shouldn’t be allowed to defend itself.

And politicians like AOC, Ilhan Omar, and other extremists have made it clear that they support terrorists, acts of terror, and hate Jews.

But now, Bernie Sanders has shocked everyone, even his most Radical colleagues by insinuating that Hamas’s use of civilians as human shields is “not the real problem.”

On a recent episode of “The Lead” on CNN, Bernie Sanders claimed that Hamas hiding among citizens and using them as shields is “perhaps, a part of the problem, but it’s not the real problem.”

He also took things even further and claimed that the starvation in Gaza “is Israel’s responsibility, not Hamas’.”

Host Jake Tapper asked for clarification and said, “What do you say to people who say, this is not fair, it’s a double standard, Hamas started this on October 7, Hamas wants to destroy Israel, Hamas wants to kill Jews, Hamas hides behind their own people, Hamas doesn’t care how many Palestinian civilians die — all of which, in my opinion, is true — what’s your response when people say that that –?”

Sanders interrupted so that he could answer: “I would agree with you. Hamas is a terrible, terrible terrorist organization that started this war. And what I have said from the beginning, Jake, Israel has a right to defend itself and go to war against Hamas.”

“That’s what I believe. I think most people believe. But you do not have a right to damage or destroy 70% of the housing units in Gaza. You don’t have a right to displace 80% of the population, throw them out of their homes, put them into this area, put them into that area, deny them food, water, medical supplies, and fuel. That, you don’t have a right to do. So, the answer is, of course, Hamas began this war, they are a terrorist organization, but the United States is not funding Hamas,” he added.

He continued on and tried to also blame America for the war saying, “We are funding Israel. And what has got to be made clear to Israel, you can go to war against Hamas, but you cannot continue these horrific actions which are causing, literally, the worst humanitarian disaster we have seen in a very long time.”

Tapper asked for further clarification saying, “What do you say to people who say the reason that so many innocent people are dying in Gaza is because Hamas embeds with the Palestinian people, they build tunnels under their homes, they hide under people, they want the civilian death toll, they consider them martyrs, and it makes Israel look bad?”

Sanders replied, “I think that is, perhaps, a part of the problem, but it’s not the real problem. The real problem right now is, we are looking, as I mentioned a moment ago, [at] massive starvation. That is not caused by Hamas.”

“That is simply caused by Israel not allowing the hundreds and hundreds of trucks that are lined up at the border to get in and go to the areas that it is needed. That is Israel’s responsibility, not Hamas’.”

Was this simply a slip-up on Sanders’ part? Or does he truly believe that Hamas using innocent civilians as human shields is not the problem here?

These are the sort of Radical and harmful ideologies that the Left holds to, and they are extremely destructive and dangerous.

We must be cautious and we cannot allow the Left to further this harmful agenda.
