Bernie Sanders Declares "White People Don't Know What It's Like To Be Poor"

submit to reddit

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 Jewish socialist/communist 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 schtick.

“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.

    Don’t know what its like to be poor?????? Try telling that to someone who grew up in the depression in northern North Dakota with no running water, and your “toilet” stood about 40 yards away, as you plowed through the snow in sub-zero temperatures finding your way to it…. Where your Mother fed a family of five on 10 to 15 dollars a week. And…. as a child having to come home at the noon hour to change the cardboard in the soles of your shoes..
    That’s what it is like to be poor, Asshole….. And it wasn’t by choice, like you who never held, or I assume, never wanted a job in your whole career. What a loser…..

    Evidently Bernie hasn’t been to any trailer parks or ‘hollers” in West Virginia or Rush Ky or the boonies in Texas or Idaho. Bernie doesn’t visit with single moms or kids with dad in prison. Bernie doesn’t know.
