Crazy Bernie Sanders says even terrible people like the Boston Bomber should be able to vote in prison
Crazy Bernie Sanders has said he wants felons to be allowed to vote. Last night in a Communist News Network town hall the old Socialist said even terrible people such as the Boston Marathon bomber should be allowed to vote.
And the even crazier thing is pundits don’t think the position will cost him any votes with his base. Proving Liberalism and it’s close cousin Socialism is a mental disorder.
“This is a democracy and we have got to expand that democracy, and I believe every single person does have the right to vote,” he said.
Sanders started his answer by pointing out the low rate of voter turnout in the United States when compared to other major democracies around the world. He said one of the primary priorities of his campaign is to make the US a “vibrant” democracy with a much higher voter turnout.
Crazy Bernie said enfranchising people like Dzhokhar Tsarnaev — the US citizen who helped bomb the Boston Marathon in 2013, killing three and injuring hundreds of others — is a part of that.
“Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away and you say, ‘Well, that guy committed a terrible crime, not going to let him vote. Well, that person did that. Not going to let that person vote,’ you’re running down a slippery slope,” Sanders said when asked by a student if sex offenders, the Boston Marathon bomber, terrorists and murderers should have voting rights.
He added: “So I believe people commit crimes and they paid the price and they have the right to vote. I believe even if they’re in jail they’re paying their price to society but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”
Kamala Harris said it is worth discussion to allow even terrible people like bombers that kill innocent people and sexual predators to vote from prison. Mayor Pete the gayest dude you can think of said a definite no. He is rising in the polls so maybe hoping to compete for the sane Democrat vote with creepy Joe Biden if he ever gets in the race.
One thing is clear Crazy Bernie Sanders is at the top of 2020 Democrats running for President and the party doesn’t like it.
