The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

Bernie Sanders is trying hard to stay left of the group of Democratic socialist young guns who are running for president under the auspices of the Democratic party. So ... what to do? He can't rage against the rich—they all do that. He can't promise lots and lots of free stuff provided by a big intrusive government—they all do that as well. He can't suggest that capitalism is evil and profit is immoral—they all make allusions to the same meme. He can't offer "medicare for all"—there's no differentiation he can gain from that either. How about guaranteed income? Nope. Or reparations for slavery? Not really.

Bernie has decided to dig deep and adopt a meme that the lunatic hard left will applaud. Bernie has decided that the only liberal democracy in the Middle East, Israel, is an "apartheid like" country.

With that statement, I can officially say ... Bernie Sanders is an idiot.

But it's worst than that. Bernie Sanders is also a posturing liar who is so blinded by his hard-left ideology that he seems incapable of making a distinction between South Africa in the 1970s and Israel in the year 2019. Is he that historically ignorant or is he providing a not-so-subtle dog whistle to gain the support of the repugnant left-wing BDS movement in its effort to demonize Israel?

Yeah, I'm sure other Democrats like Ilhan Omar, Keith Ellison, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will cheer Bernie on, but I wonder why so-called mainstream Dems haven't commented publicly.

And for Jewish supporters of the Democratic party, Bernie's ignorant rant is yet another reason to #Walkaway.
