A senior political advisor to Sanders and former adviser to the anti-Semitic Women's March, Winnie Wong, tweeted a gif of far left UK Labour Party leader and anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn dancing on the grave of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The gif also contains a Red Rose, the symbol of the global socialist movement and conspiracy. after Conservative Party Prime Minister Theresa May resigned in the Spring of 2019. Wong tweeted the image and wrote, "Jeremy Corbyn's gonna to be the next PM of England. That's gonna be so much fun." Thatcher, who was British PM at the demise of the Soviet Union famously said, "There is no alternative to capitalism."
Leading anti-Semite Linda Sarsour is one of the chief surrogates of the Sanders campaign.
Sanders ran a campaign that was rife with sexual violence and harassment against males, females, and other genders. Sanders ignored complaints from at least two dozen male and female volunteers (and however many other genders) of "sexual violence and harassment" in his 2016 presidential campaign. The New York Times reported that Sanders had apologized to female victims of sexual violence who "were not treated properly", however male victims of sexual violence in the Sanders campaign have not been addressed. Secondly, a mere "apology" does not address the serious issue of sexual violence in the Sanders campaign. No single person has been reported to have been arrested or disciplined.
Sanders did an interview with ex-stripper Cardi B who admitted to drugging and robbing men.
Unfair labor practices
Sanders’ campaign was hit with an unfair labor practice complaint alleging illegal employee interrogation and retaliation against staffers. The complaint to the National Labor Relations Board, lists five potential violations of the National Labor Relations Act. The charge also alleges that the campaign unlawfully discharged an employee, modified a labor contract, and engaged in illegal discipline.
While Sanders vowed a $15 minimum wage, he was only paying campaign workers $13 an hour. Many complained of poor working conditions. In response, Sanders raised pay to $15 an hour and cut their hours. Loss of hours and part-time status had the effect of reducing healthcare benefits.
RacismBernie Sanders said of Baltimore, Maryland:
Residents of Baltimore’s poorest boroughs have lifespans shorter than people living under dictatorship in North Korea. That is a disgrace.Sanders further added, "anyone who took the walk that we took around this Baltimore neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation, you'd think that you were in a Third World country”.
Baltimore Deputy Police Chief was robbed at gunpoint. By mid 2019 Baltimore was a rat infested dump with 180 homicides. Baltimore is so infested with rodents the Baltimore Sunn' published a map of rat hot spot map. Speaker Nancy Pelosi white-flighted from Baltimore in 1962.

Human Rights Watch reported that in seven states, African Americans constituted 80 to 90 percent of all drug offenders even though they were no more likely than whites to use or sell illegal drugs. Prison admissions for drug offenses reached a level in 2000 for African Americans more than 26 times the level they had been under Ronald Reagan.

Love of communismA satirical article has Sanders reminiscing about his drunken honeymoon to Time magazine in his beloved Soviet Russia saying:
"on our honeymoon, I took Jane to Russia, back when it was still known as the Soviet Union. Russia was an incredible place back then, before the billionaires ruined everything. Who needs 30 different types of deodorant anyway? In the glory days of the Soviet Union, there was one brand, it was called “Deodorant,” and you had to wait four hours in line for it. By the time you got your hands on one, you were sweating so badly, not even the greediest billionaire’s fanciest deodorant could mask the stench. Or as I call it: The sweet smell of equality!"Vladimir Putin commented on the glory days of the Soviet Union:
"Whoever does not miss the Soviet Union has no heart. Whoever wants it back has no brain.
Barack Obama said of Sanders during the 2016 primaries, "I am hurt, though, Bernie, that you've distancing yourself a little from me. I mean, that's just not something that you do to your comrade."
Prison industrial complex
Sanders adopted Linda Evans prison industrial complex slogan as part agenda.
