As presidential campaign season gets into higher gear, candidates are starting to pile up the gaffes, or rather, expose the true nature of their proposals. Bernie Sanders, a Jewish candidate for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020 is the latest to show his cards.

“First, after Israel reelected the formidable Benjamin Netanyahu, instead of accepting the will of the Israeli people all Bernie could do was lament the win by calling the new government “racist,” signaling his unwillingness to work with Netanyahu should he ever become president,” said former New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind.

“Then, as if that weren’t ridiculous enough, in a town hall, Sanders promoted the idea that murderers and terrorists like the Tsarnaev brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon, killing four and injuring scores more, should be able to vote from prison! If that isn’t absurd then it shows you how far Left the Democrats have gone. Either way it should concern every American and Jew that there’s a candidate seeking votes among those who’ve taken innocent lives. As long as the Democrats are silent on the antisemitism of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib while calling Israel “racist” and getting cozy with murderers, Jewish Democrats have no choice but to take a vacation from the party in 2020.”

  1. Hikind just wants to keep his name out there. We all know what Bernie Sanders is and that he won’t get the Democratic nomination. After serving many years as an ineffective State Assemblyman Dov is just trying to be relevant. Perhaps Hikind could remain silent and find something productive to do with his time.

  2. yaakov doe Your dislike for Dov is obvious. He stood up against antisemitism in the past and now also. What did you ever do publicly to stand up to antisemites and their acts?

  3. Dov Hikind was a great representative of the Yiddish Community as a State Assemblyman for many years. I’m glad that he continues to speak up for our issues even after retiring from his position. Yasher Koach Dov.

  4. Hikind would not be considered a Democrat today. That he still considers himself a Democrat reflects inertia and creeping old age. By 21st century standards, he is a Republican, even if he hasn’t figured that out.

  5. With all due respect, Mr. Hikind is a DINO – Democrat in name only. Like many frum yidden he registers as a Democrat because in his district the Democrat is almost guaranteed to be elected. Therefore the only way to influence the election is to register as a Democrat and vote in the Democratic primary for whatever candidate seems closest to local frum political sentiment. Mr. Hikind has shown that he is, as akuperma points out, really a Republican, but it isn’t inertia, it’s well-considered strategy.
