Bernie Sanders wrote on Twitter Monday that the “ultra-rich” have been “looting” America for 40 years.
“The richest 400 Americans sit on $3 trillion—the size of the entire UK economy,” Sanders said. “The billionaire class now pays a lower tax rate than people living paycheck to paycheck. The looting of America has been going on for over 40 years—and the culprits are the ultra-rich.”

Then why did you endorse one of the architects of that looting for President, Bernie?

I expected him to endorse the nominee if he lost a long time ago. I don’t care who he endorses but I feel he is still doing good work in the Senate and I support that. Sanders is losing every state today badly so I feel bad for him.

It would have been one thing if he’d endorsed Biden with faint praise, and left it there. But no. Instead, he endorsed Biden, and chastised those of his supporters who would not follow his lead. Really sad.
On Biden, I’m no closer to supporting him now, than I was the day Bernie suspended his campaign. Still in the write-in camp, and I fully intend to vote for that person (whoever I decide it is), at this point.

The truth is, there’s no such thing as being “anti-Fascist.” Either you are a decent human being with a conscience, or you are a fascist.

Moved from the 1% to millionaires to billionaires to the top 400 now!
