Warren, Sanders, and Biden Preach Diversity, They Donít Live It
Frontpage Magazine ^ | November 14, 2019 | Daniel Greenfield

Senator Bernie Sanders lives in a $476,000 colonial in Burlington VT. The house in New North End is one of three homes that he and his wife own. Burlington VT is 85% white and less than 5% black. Unlike the Old North End, which is diverse, the New North End has an older and more conservative population. The average household income is $80,000, and a number of the elected officials have been Republicans.

Despite Bernie’s socialist image, he chose to live in a white conservative suburban neighborhood where lefties are only slowly beginning to make inroads as younger couples start to move into the area.

Bernie's vacation place in North Hero, Vermont, by Lake Champlain, is over 97% white and only 0.25% black. His 1890 rowhouse in Washington D.C.’s Stanton Park is in a somewhat more diverse area.

Why invest in a home so close to Capitol Hill? Because Bernie expects to be in the Senate for life.

Senator Elizabeth Warren lives in a $3.5 million Victorian home a few blocks from Harvard Square built in 1890. Cambridge is 82% white and Asian, and 10% black. Half the population has an MA or a PhD.

Neighborhood Nine or Radcliffe, where Warren lives, is even whiter than Cambridge in general.

Her home is a four-hour drive away from Bernie’s. And it’s a long way from the foreclosed Oklahoma homes that she was buying and flipping to make a profit.

You don’t expect a top socialist to live like ordinary people, do you?

Liberals/progressives...were it not for double standards, they have no standards at all.

We’ll wait for them all to transition to small homes that are completely solar/wind powered (with just solar collectors the size of their roofs and a silly little Biden-brain sized windmill in the yard) and we can then start laughing a bit less when they prattle on about real diversity, science, economics, and actual human behavior that they never will be able to understand.

All of Vermont is 95% white. If you want to be the senator from Vermont, there really isn’t much choice. Black guys are too smart to live in a freezing state where there are no jobs.

“Because Bernie expects to be in the Senate for life”

Yet another reason to repeal the 17th and make them accountable to the States.

Vermont used to be conservative politically. The stereotype, is that so many New York liberal types such as Bernie, moved to Vermont, that they tipped the balance in a largely rural state, and overwhelmed the native population.

Yes, unfortunately the party demographics started in 1959 when VT went overwhelmingly blue

Lots of words can be ginned up to describe the Left, in general, but especially Democratic politicians.....HYPOCRITES. Every single one of them. We’ll wait and see how long the Squad sticks around. Right now they’re a bit too mouthy to start cashing in like some of old guard. Pressley probably has the best chance to stick around, as she doesn’t seem to be chasing every camera or microphone like the other 3.

You can hardly blame them. They have all those expensive things that they don’t want stolen.

The percentage of Vermont blacks in prison is much higher than their percentage of the general population.
