What Bernie Sanders said about these rights for convicted terrorists will make your blood boil

The latest polling shows Sen. Bernie Sanders leading the pack for the Democrat nomination in 2020.

If he wins, he will challenge Trump in the general election.

But his support could be plummeting after he said something insane about rights for convicted terrorists.

Bernie Sanders is a socialist with a lot of crazy ideas.

And somehow he continues to be popular among many voters, particularly young voters who support his socialist agenda.

But there might be no idea of his that is crazier than his belief that convicted criminals currently serving hard time should be allowed to vote from prison.

In recent weeks he hinted at the position, with many questioning how far he is willing to go with it.

But, in a recent town hall, he made it clear he believes every criminal deserves to vote while they’re still behind bars, including the Boston Marathon bomber and convicted sexual predators.

Fox News reports:

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday defended his stance for granting voting rights to criminals in prison, including the Boston Marathon bomber and convicted sexual assaulters.

During a CNN town hall on Monday night, Harvard student Anne Carlstein asked if his position would support “enfranchising people” like Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who she noted is a “convicted terrorist and murderer,” as well as those “convicted of sexual assault,” whose votes could have a “direct impact on women’s rights.”

Sanders first responded by saying he wanted a “vibrant democracy” with “higher voter turnout” and blasted “cowardly Republican governors” who he said were “trying to suppress the vote.”

The Vermont senator then argued that the Constitution says “everybody can vote” and that “some people in jail can vote.”

CNN host Chris Cuomo was clearly taken aback by his candid statement, even giving him the chance to walk it back.

But Sanders refused, instead doubling down on his position that even the Boston Bomber should be allowed to vote from prison.

Many think that once a criminal has served their time that their voting rights should be restored.

Further, most Americans understand that giving felons the right to vote while they’re behind bars is a ridiculous position.

But Sanders doesn’t care, likely because he believes these terrorists will vote for him.

    Bernie is just another deranged communist! I have never seen a more disagreeable old fart with a permanent case of a confrontational attitude in my entire life. He was so abrupt and grouchy in the Townhall Fox News had, I could not believe how he responded to Martha and Bret. He is plain and simply a mean old man! I cannot believe how strong his support is and how he appeals to millennials. That age young people are usually so sensitive, everything hurts their feelings and you have to handle them with kid gloves but, they love Bernie. I guess it is because he is “saying” what they were educated to believe in our liberal education system.
    Bernie is so mean, he makes President Trump look as gentle as a pre-kindergarten teacher! 🙂

    This has nothing to do with the victims or survivors of these felons. It takes a criminal to understand criminals. These democrats are criminals and they are very proud of it. They believe their own lies because their brains are weak and they become democrats. Democrats are anti- God and Republicans for pro-God. They do not have the mental capacity to do good or be honest. They also have vile hearts which explains their hatred for goodness and truth.

    Just take a look at this idiot. He looks like the mad scientist or better still a scarecrow that belongs out in a corn field in Vermont. Everything that comes out of his mouth is STUPID an will cost American taxpayers tons of money if he were elected. Bernie. Your too old. RETIRE. There needs to be term limits so these old coots can’t make a living out of these seats

  5. Steve Wolfgang says:

    When you go to jail you give up your rights….you are being punished for wrongdoing….no voting!

  6. Dick Guzinya says:

    What a dumbass,.the Boston bombers and his brother were born in the Soviet Union and Kyrgyzstan.. so they are not citizens and can’t vote..ummm and they were exchange students…sure..vote for Bernie…no nothing effr

  7. Gregory Sullivan says:

    Everyone can rest assured that as far as getting the nomination and winning the presidential election is concerned, he won’t make it to first base. He should be deported to Venezuela and eat zoo animals. After all that is what he wants to do is model this country after that one.

    • Rodney says:

      How about locking all the dim wits, libtards and rino’s up in ther zoo and let the visitors throw peanuts at them for their food and then hose them down for their water intake for the day, and see how they like being told what they can and can’t do!!!!!!!!

    • Robert E. Davis says:

      I believe he consumed massive amounts of lysergic acid diet hula diethyl amide as a teenager and now everyone is seeing the
      aggregate results………he is displaying symptoms of not being firmly planted in reality…..as most psychiatrists would suggest, he is in dyer need of a “wrap-around sport coat” and a steady diet of Thorazine injections! I’m not judgin’, I’m just sayin’..

  8. Pete says:

    Hmmm… What a great idea! We should now allow people that have proven that they don’t belong in society to have the right to decide how that society should function? Just when you start to think that the Left couldn’t get any more ridiculous, someone raises the bar…

  9. Ellie says:

  10. Bernie Sanders knows that he is not going to win against Trump But, he wants as his gold to make money from his campaign

  11. dew says:

    I have noticed for a long long time most of the left–are NUTS–and need to be locked up themselves–Bernie why not let the infants vote also?? YOU are indeed INSANE and one doesn’t need to be an expert to detect that! When common sense ws handed out you must have been by-passed many times ??

    • Robert says:

      Who was stupid enough to buy his book? Maybe they bought it just to verify how dementive he really is! God please save us from Bernie Nancy P. Chucky S. A.O.C and the rest of the Democrats from New York and California

  12. Breaker 19 says:

    Bernie just forgot to mention, that he is talking about the felons who vote Democrat, not the ones voting Republican. The Democrats think there are more Democrats in prison than Republicans. You know, they may be right.

  13. larry lawson says:

    Constitution gives rights to own guns. Bernie, going on your premise that they have rights under the constitution, would you thus allow them to buy a gun as well?

  14. Jim says:

    This is the crap the country is up against.Are we really that stupid? I guess we will see come Election Day.

  15. Nate says:

    Between Bernard wanting convicted felons voting and Nancy wanting to lower the voting age to sixteen and OL’Joe wanting to walk each one to the both with his hands all over them? What else will they come up with? When she was alive she voted Democrat, Doctors said she’d live to see 110 years old, we should be able to use her vote too! Oh, I’m sorry they’re already doing that!

  16. You ask how far he’s willing to go with this nonsense,? All the way to the scene of the crash.

  17. Mike Hunt says:

    Of course the “free cheese” candidates and Couch Potato Sanders want the murderer’s votes. Gavin Nuisance of KRAPaphornia assured them by abolishing the death penalty, even for the most heinous rapist/murderers.

    Where is Cankles when we really need her.??

  18. Caesar Meledandri says:

    Here is the most demented man running for the Presidency. He certainly needs to have his brain scanned to find out if in fact he really has a brain. If he does he should be incarcerated with all the convicts that he stated should vote. Good luck DEMENTED BERNIE.

  19. Sheldon says:

    I am so sorry for Bernie. He does not realize that what he is saying is outlandish it borders on insanity. It is way past time for Bernie to take his millions, that he will never spend, and retire to a nice home for the elderly idiots!

    • Thomas Wayne Kidd says:

      BORDER’S ON INSANITY????? . He landed in the state of Demented Causes years ago, and was elected mayor for life in the city of LA, LA burg. Bernieites bask in his light which is darkness and how great is that darkness.

  20. Michael Morrell says:

    He is a kook always has been. He doesn’t give a damn about anything but votes. If Hitler, Stalin and Jeffery Dahmer were alive Bernie would bless them with a right to vote. Clearly a nut!

  21. Bonnie Holloway says:

    Wow! He definitely went too far with that ignorant statement. That is a slap in the face of survivors victims and families.
