So much for freedom of speech.
A Bernie Sanders supporter who slammed Hillary Clinton at her own rally in Iowa was kicked off stage after urging attendees not to vote for Clinton because you can’t trust her.
Kaleb Vanfosson, president of Iowa State University’s Students for Bernie chapter, trashed Clinton’s ties to Wall Street and lack of empathy for the average American.
“She is so trapped in the world of the elite that she has completely lost grip on what it’s like to be an average person,” Vanfosson said, as cheers erupted from the audience. “She doesn’t care.”
Vanfosson, who’s no fan of Donald Trump, also blasted the brash billionaire, saying Trump doesn’t care about student loan debt. But then, neither does Clinton.
“Unfortunately, Hillary doesn’t really care about this issue either,” Vanfosson said. “The only thing she cares about is pleasing her donors, the billionaires who fund her campaign.”
He continued: “The only people that really trust Hillary are Goldman Sachs. CitiGroup can trust Hillary, the military industrial complex can trust Hillary. Her good friend Henry Kissinger can trust Hillary.”
At that point, Vanfosson was rushed off the stage by a Clinton staffer. Afterward, Vanfosson told reporters he was “basically assaulted” by the Clinton staffer as he was kicked out of the event.
“Vanfosson told the Iowa State Daily that while being escorted out he was ‘basically assaulted,’” the Iowa State Daily’s Shannon McCarty wrote. “Vanfosson said he does have footage of the incident.”
Many Bernie Sanders supporters are still furious that the Democratic primary elections were “rigged” in favor of Hillary Clinton.
Leaked Wikileaks emails showed that Clinton campaign staffers coordinated both with pro-Hillary mainstream media and the Democratic National Committee to ensure that Sanders would not win. Clinton insiders also vowed to “crush” Sanders.
“Bernie needs to be ground to a pulp,” Clinton adviser Joel Johnson wrote in an email to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. “Crush him as hard as you can.”
“I agree with that in principle,” Podesta replied. “Where would you stick the knife in?”
