We’ve reported on the socialism of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and his defense of Communist countries.

That is likely to hurt him in critical places like Florida.

But that’s not the only problem that’s going to hurt him and the Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer who both indicated this week that they would be comfortable with him at the top of the ticket.

They have a big problem in the Rust Belt, to whom Bernie has basically said, “Drop dead,” in regards to his positions on banning natural gas and fracking.

From Townhall:

In 2020, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd asked Sanders what he would say to workers in the Rust Belt, specifically in the key state of Pennsylvania, who are in the natural gas industry. It supports hundreds of thousands of jobs. Banning it, which is what Sanders wants to do, will destroy this industry overnight. And Todd aptly noted The New York Times report that quoted top union leaders in the Keystone State stating that if Sanders or Liz Warren is the 2020 nominee, they will tell their people to either vote for Trump or stay home.

Sanders’ response?

What I tell these workers is that the scientists are telling us that if we don’t act incredibly boldly within the next 6-7 years there will be irreparable damage done not just to Nevada, not just to Vermont, or Massachusetts, but to the entire world.


He finishes off saying his climate madness about the world imploding in the next ten years is “more important than the profits of the fossil fuel companies.” Remember the question wasn’t their profits, it was the jobs of working men and woman in the industry.

In other words, you’re out of luck because too bad.

Your welfare which should be his concern, isn’t really uppermost in his mind. Putting you out of work is.

And the unions know it and will come out for President Donald Trump.

It’s hard to know what’s going to be the bigger problem for Sanders.

But Pelosi and Schumer have indicated they don’t care about the people who have such concerns, they’re still willing to embrace Sanders. They need to be rejected, soundly, at the polls.
