The GOP shooter in Virginia was a huge Bernie Sanders fan. In the recent months there have been more and more instances of liberal violence against Conservatives and some have pointed to Bernie Sanders rhetoric is one of the causes. However, Bernie Sanders has refused to turn down his hateful rhetoric. He joined with Elizabeth Warren and called Republicans ‘cowards’.
They started by discussing the GOP healthcare bill. “The answer is not to make a difficult situation much, much worse. And again, getting back to the initial point, our Republican colleagues are so cowardly, are so frightful that the American people will learn what’s in their legislation. They refuse to have one hearing, one open discussion about it,” said Sanders.
“I think it’s beyond cowardly. I think it’s actually very strategic on their part. I think they’ve decided that — look, they know which side their bread is buttered on. They know what the Koch brothers want them to do, and a handful of other giant corporations and billionaires,” responded Warren.
“I think what they really want out of this is to say, ‘We’re gonna keep this as quiet as we can so nobody is examining it. We are going to suddenly expose the bill and we’re gonna get a vote on it right away, we’re gonna get Donald Trump to go ahead and sign it into law,” said Warren.
“And then what we’re hoping is that everyone will be so demoralized that they just won’t talk about it. That it’ll just go away,’” said Warren. Are you sick of these people demonizing Republicans so much? You can see relevant comments at the 18:00 minute mark in the video below.
