Skip to comments.Senator Who Owns 3 Houses Rails Against Americans Who 'Worship Wealth'
Posted on 03/20/2017 6:44:53 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
The Socialist senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, set off a Twitterstorm yesterday with a tweet that was hard to believe.
Needless to say, this towering hypocrisy did not go unnoticed in the Twitterverse:
A man who owns three houses -- including the recent purchase of a vacation home for $600K -- and pays a smaller percentage of his income in taxes than most middle class Americans, should not be taking a dump on America in a glass house.
There are two possibilities for Sanders' obvious cluelessness; 1) he knew full well the kind of reaction he would get and was looking for attention; or 2) he really is oblivious to how incredibly hypocritical his words are.
I would think the latter explanation is closer to the truth. Liberals like Sanders -- like most rich liberals in Hollywood and elsewhere -- believe they deserve their wealth by dint of some special talent or brilliance they possess. They feel themselves above the mundane, petty concerns that most Americans have about great wealth. That their hearts are so noble, their intent so pure, and their lives so devoted to the less fortunate -- all this makes these liberals better than the rest of us.
If not the rest of us, certainly better than the run-of-the-mill rich people who don't share their compassion, their love for their brothers and sisters, their tolerance, and their out-and-out goodness.
It's amazing this guy got as close to the nomination of a major party as he did.
Bernie proves one thing.A bum is a bum even if he comes into some money later in life.
FU commie prick.
The only socialist I can think of who had a scrap of integrity was George Orwell.
“Says the man who owns 3 homes one which cost over $600,000”.
That’s the “reward” house that he “suddenly” bought right after he bowed down, I mean, ummm “lost” the primaries to Hitlery.
When Bernie divests himself of two excess houses, then he can talk.
Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, obviously.
Bernie has NO idea what people like me do for people that are having a tough time.

Bless you for your efforts.I see Sanders as a morally bankrupt person.
just another champagne socialist
Pretzel (liberal) logic (apologies to Steely Dan)...
Sanders has learned that Democrat voters are stupid, for example they believe he is “independent” even though he caucuses with and votes 100% of the time, with the Democrats.
So why not push the envelope and rail against people of limited wealth that aspire to a better life and label them “greedy?”
He also has other perks...
Gets subsidized health care and does not have to pay into Social Security.
Ten Years After:
Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till there are no rich no more
How many homes do you need Bernie? Hypocrite.
Inner Party members are oligarchy. They are not forced to live the principles of socialism like the Outer Party proletariat masses.
And donates the proceeds to something like the Salvation Army.
He’s a real Mother Theresa, that one! *SMIRK*
I’ll bet this was very popular with his libtard supporters who live in Mom’s basement.
