Sanders steps in it, declares white people ‘don’t know what it’s like to be poor’

Bernie Sanders played an entire deck of race cards in one fell swoop at the Democrat debate Sunday night, but it was his take on poverty that earned a facepalm.

The Vermont senator did his pandering best to wrestle the black vote away from Hillary Clinton by accusing police officers of terrorizing black people … the usual shtick.

“I’m not just talking about the horrible shootings that we have seen which have got to end and we’ve got to hold police officers accountable,” he said. “I’m just talking about everyday activities where police officers are bullying people.”

But that wasn’t enough for Sanders who dialed up the stupid to another level.

“When you’re white you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto. You don’t know what it’s like to be poor,” he said.

Interesting, because according to U.S. Census figures in 2013, the number of poor whites was 18.9 million.

That figure was 8 million more than poor blacks and 5 million more than poor Latinos, the Root reported.

According to Sen. Sanders, those white people don’t know what it’s like to be poor.

Social media wasted no time in lambasting the senator for his condescending statement.

    I drive in your State Bernie, some of the houses I pass makes me want to stop and give a donation.

    I will never forget growing up in a ghetto and the subhumans who attacked me relentlessly for being white.

    I will never forget that Bernie Sanders is yet another commie jew who hates white gentiles. Never will I pretend that rat faced bastard is anything but a sworn enemy of my people.

    Save your white guilt bernie you yiddish snake, shove it.

    OT – Bernie just said that legislation via executive order would be unconstitutional.

  4. wsurfs . says:

    To say white people don’t know what it’s like to be poor is a BIG FAT DEMONCRAP PANDERING LIE…!!

    When Bernie said “White People” he meant Jews like him.

    Senile Bernie is a Joke and a Racist. Color has no bearing on being Rich or Poor. When I was in Washington State it really surprised me to see scruffty White kids living in tiny shacks. There are Whites around coal or oil States that are poor and suffering thanks to Bozo and the DemoFreaks Anti Energy Policies. Poor Whites are all over the place many are even on food stamps and UEB . Bernie just look around fool.

      Someone should also tell Bernie everyone is poorer under Obama. Who btw, is not as stringent a socialist/communist as Bernie. Hillary and Bernie talk about how bad things are in the economy but for some reason forget whose policies have been in place for over seven years.

      Even Obama talks out of both sides of his mouth bragging about his accomplishments in the economy then turns around and cries about how we need jobs and how the infrastructure is the pits. He behaves like he doesn’t know he’s been in charge. It’s schizophrenic

    Sanders is a freak!

  8. CoonOkie says:

    What he said just proves the point that a politician will say anything to get a vote. Sanders is no different. Just another demo_rat trying to get the vote of the give me crowd. He proves the point that the only good politician is one swinging from the business end of a rope.

    Hey Bernie, if you want to help the poor then take it out of YOUR pocket. Why do you think that you have the right to steal from hard working Americans to give to your supporters? It is not your money. We earned it and taking it from us just to give to someone else is stealing!!! Your are a thief Bernie and that makes anyone who supports your policies a thief as well.

    Care to review the other planks that make up the Democrat platform? I already mentioned theft. Add to that the killing of innocent human life, lying, slander, division, envy, jealousy, strife, enslavement, racism, hatred, hypocrisy, idolatry, treason, and all manner of sexual perversions. The list goes on and on…

    The sad part is that many Republicans are just like them. They all need to just go away!
