Clinton prepares red scare assault on Bernie Sanders

From Death and Taxes:




The Guardian is reporting that, according to a dossier they obtained from an anonymous source within the Democratic Party, the Clinton campaign and others who do not want to see Sanders receive the nomination will be accusing him of “sympathizing with the USSR during the Cold War” and “associations with communism” in Cuba. That former allegation is apparently based on the fact that he went on a trip to the Soviet Union to visit a twinned city while mayor of Burlington. The latter is tied to other quotes cherry-picked from throughout the senator’s career about China and Nicaragua.

Seems like branding a candidate a “socialist” is just a tad too 2000-and-late for the Clinton camp (also, probably ineffective when both the candidate and a large portion of the Democratic voter base openly embrace the term) so Hill-Dawg decided to just go full McCarthy with some good ol’ fashioned Red Scare fear-mongering.

    1. Senator Sanders is about a much of a communist as Republican President Eisenhower whose administration had a top marginal tax rate of 91% and yet a successful television show depicting the era was entitled “Happy Days.” And America was the undisputed economic powerhouse with the largest middle class the world had ever seen.

      Not surprising to see Hillary Clinton, a former “Goldwater Gal” go there with the commie smear. They must be getting worried in Clintonland since the latest polls show a surge of support for Bernie in South Carolina, her so called “firewall.”

  1. The “commie” smear being floated by the Clinton operatives is simply a way for the elite party establishment to manage their grassroots which is harder to do when a simple search engine is only a few moments away.
