Bernie Sanders’ illegal alien aide is doing the anti-Semitism that Americans just don’t want to do

Now Bernie Sanders’ campaign is dealing with anti-semitism because of his spokesperson posting a comment on her facebook attacking the Jews!

She has come out and apologized already:

A spokeswoman for Sen. Bernie Sanders‘s (I-Vt.) 2020 presidential campaign apologized Tuesday after making “insensitive” remarks on Facebook questioning whether American Jews have “dual allegiance” to Israel.

“In a conversation on Facebook, I used some language that I see now was insensitive. Issues of allegiance and loyalty to one’s country come with painful history,” she told Politico.

“At a time when so many communities in our country feel under attack by the president and his allies, I absolutely recognize that we need to address these issues with greater care and sensitivity to their historical resonance, and I’m committed to doing that in the future,” she continued.



Here’s what she said in the anti-semitic post:

In a since-deleted Facebook post, first reported by Politico, Sanders’s national deputy press secretary Belén Sisa questioned whether U.S. Jews hold dual loyalty to the U.S. and Israel.

“This is a serious question: Do you not think that the American government and American Jewish community has a dual allegiance to the State of Israel? I’m asking not to rule out the history of this issue, but in the context in which this was said by Ilhan,” Sisa wrote in a Facebook thread, according to Politico.

There is a good argument that has been made by many here – it is only with the Jews that people accuse others of having “dual loyalty.” If you want a foreign policy friendly with Germany, you’re not accused of that, if you want good foreign relations with France, you’re not accused of that. The closest we have is when people on the left accuse republicans of being in the pocket of Putin to betray America, and when people on the right accuse liberals of having loyalty to some nebulous ideal of African interests or Latin American interests or something. But nothing comes close to animosity some use against the Jews….

Also what kind of nutty name is Belen Sisa. Sounds like a perfume or a salsa or something. “Pass me the Belen Sisa, I wanna put it on this taco and spray it in my underarms!” I would say.

Exactly how is this President and his allies attacking you? What; low unemployment or more money in your pocket through low taxes, how is this President attacking you? Is it because he said America will NEVER be a socialist Country? Are you an effing socialist and THAT’S how he attacks you? Well too bad! We The People totally AGREE!!!

When the Left regains Presidential power these anti-Semites won’t have to apologize.

Sure, it’s OK to be an illegal and protest with a Mexican or El Salvadorian flag, though. exclamation exclamation

Leave it to the left to combine anti-Semitism with a serious concern like dual loyalty, so they can undermine the right when they question the motives of Muslim invaders in the near future. Nothing they do is a coincidence, and they can count on the mainstream media to cover all their political calculations and double standards.

I don’t think DACA recipients should be called “Illegal Aliens”. They are legally able to stay in the USA….for now. As long as they can’t be deported, they are here legally (for now). I think its a misnomer that we call them illegal aliens. If that was true, I’d expect ice to head to Bernie’s campaign headquarters and arrest her on the spot.

If you’ve knowingly crossed the border illegally, logically, you’re all but a convicted criminal. The federal court system unconstitutionally undermined the current President’s decision to rescind the previous President’s executive order, and no policy has made them permanent residents, so they’re still temporary residents. I’d have deported them one by one when they turned 18, but neither party believes in actual deterrents.

bikerhoopbikerhoop 0 unconstitutionally used his largess to allow it by EO, and of course, Tromp’s EO to stop it was blocked. But those were probably rhetorical questions, anyway.

The headline says that Sanders’ aide is an illegal alien. It’s bad enough that they pander to illegals, but it’s a spit in the face when they allow them to be involved in the political process.

How ’bout the people here who fly the Mexican, El Salvador, Guatemalan etc flags…no one ever addresses THEIR allegiance or loyalty. Why is this happening w/ the Jews? The hypocrisy is overwhelming.

I agree, and girls today definitely need more of those tools. They need parents not friends!!! My father would tell me, “no one stands on the street corner handing out fair cards!” in response to my sobbing.. “but… but.. that’s not fair!” I had a profound sense of right and wrong with a distorted sense of justice. I would become very upset if I felt that someone was victimized or mistreated.. When I became a parent, I found it difficult to switch gears when I realized I was raising two lambs for the slaughter. I trued to teach them the simple facts of life- “people will steal, and it’s not because they are homeless or starving and in need of food” (In my child’s mind, people would only steal when they hungry or homeless). Growing up in the Adam Walsh Era, we had a school presentation about the stranger danger.… Read more »

Leftists especially do this a lot: Say something horrible or insensitive (meaning it’s how they really feel), THEN… if they are called out for it, they issue a lame “apology”. They’re NOT sorry.
