Augusta Chronicle: ‘Sanders is communist’

Bernie Sanders


Today is known as “super Tuesday” related to the number of USA primary elections.  One of the candidates on the Democratic side is Bernie Sanders. The Augusta Chronicle ran the following:

Sanders is communist

I read recently that Fidel Castro is endorsing Bernie Sanders for president of the United States. If it was not so serious it would be humorous.

Few people know who Sanders really is. He’s made no secret over the years – proclaiming to anyone who will listen that he is a socialist, a.k.a. communist. Over the years, Sanders has been closely associated with the Democratic Socialists of America, the country’s largest leftist organization. …

While at the University of Chicago, Sanders joined the Young People’s Socialist League, the youth affiliate of the Socialist Party of America, a Marxist/communist group. In the 1970s Sanders was a member of the Liberty Union Party and the People’s Party both Marxist/communist groups. Sanders and his first wife even spent their honeymoon in the Soviet Union.

The above is not unique to the Augusta Chronicle. World News Daily, today, again featured an article from its editor basically pointing to the same conclusion.

Notice also the following:

2016: Democratic front-runner Bernie Sanders says concerns about his honeymoon trip to the USSR in the ’80s are “silly.” He’ll have a harder time explaining his months-long stay at a hardcore Stalinist camp in the ’60s.

It’s clear the self-avowed socialist is even further left than he has admitted. Fifty years ago, during the height of the Cold War, he sought out communist indoctrination.

The Israeli press earlier this month broke the story that Sanders, who is Jewish, spent several months at an Israeli commune co-founded by a Soviet spy. The revelation is just now wending its way through the American media, where it’s been confirmed by none other than the New York Times, though the pro-Democrat paper predictably buried the story on its back pages.

As a college student in 1963, Sanders was a guest of the Hashomer Hatzair, a Marxist youth movement founded by communist Ya’akov Hazan, who called the Soviet Union a second homeland and eulogized Stalin as “the great leader and extolled commander. We lower our flag in grief in memory of the great revolutionary fighter (and) architect of socialist construction.”

Ignoring Stalin’s atrocities, Hazan oozed: “His huge historical achievements will guide generations in their march toward the reign of socialism and communism the world over.”

The Marxist movement Sanders joined pledged its allegiance to the Soviet Union and was described as “Stalinist” as late as 1969 — well after Sanders’ visit.

While many are seeing that Bernie Sanders is some type of a communist, many Americans do not realize that the USA has been moving towards being communist itself the past several years.

Consider the following that the Russian publication Pravda ran right after the re-election of US President Barack Obama (

Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake…

Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. …

He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so.  How shrewd he is in America.  His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.

So, basically Pravda was saying that the USA has been turning communist, but Americans are basically too stupid to see it.

As far as Pravda goes, several years ago it decried the fact that the USA was ceasing to be a capitalist nation, but instead claimed that “the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed” (for more details, see Election Demonstrating Socialist Shift in USA? or ICG, Russia, and the Whimper of American Capitalism).

As far Barack Obama and Marxism go, notice something I have in my book Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term:

Barack Obama was influenced by various people with Muslim, Marxist, and anti-colonialist backgrounds in his youth and some have suggested that this affects his current decisions.  In the 2007 edition of his book, originally published in 1995, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, Barack Obama makes what seems to be anti-colonial statements and even claims that he sought out “Marxist professors” in college.  Influences in his youth did affect his writings, and perhaps his later readings…

Interestingly, the Russian newspaper Pravda stated, “Barack Obama…is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so.”  (Thiel B.   Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term.  Nazarene Books, 2013, p. 13)

Anyway, Bernie Sander’s Democratic party opponent, Hillary Clinton, says she basically wants to continue Barack Obama’s policies. Bernie Sanders, himself, says that they need to become even more ‘socialist’ (by which he means more towards communism).

In many ways, the USA has become more like the communist nations it opposed decades ago. The federal government of the USA no longer believes in many privacy or legal rights, it detains people for suspicions without charges, collects data without court orders, has government required health care, restricts the travel of more of its citizens, and seems to be more involved with ‘wealth redistribution’ than wealth creation.

This does not bode well for the USA whether or not Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton can win.

Now, one area that Bernie Sanders differs from communists is that Bernie Sanders is more open to drug legalization (see Bernie Sanders proposes a ‘marijuana nation’)–communist governments have normally been opposed to this.  Interestingly, former pro-wrestler and Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura recently said that if Bernie Sanders loses, he would run for president, apparently as an independent. Jesse Ventura is in favor of some of Bernie Sanders’ positions, including on drug legalization (see Jesse Ventura: If Sanders loses, I’ll run).

The USA is going in the wrong direction and needs the Kingdom of God.

Pray (Matthew 6:10; 1 Timothy 2:1-3).
