Being a liberal means never having to say you’re sorry. If you happen to be a liberal and a member of one of the projected classes of people, you not only don’t have to apologize for doing horrible things, you get to attack your accusers for being racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.. Jane Sanders, wife of Bernie, has the convenience of being a woman and is blaming sexism for the reason why she and her husband are being investigated for bank fraud.
As you know, Jane Sanders ran a small liberal arts college into the ground after fraudulently securing loans for it. Her husband, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, is accused of using his political clout to help his wife pull the wool over the bank’s eyes. This is made especially bad because Bernie promotes himself as a socialist and here he is, smack dab in the middle of a capitalist fraud scheme.
The Sanders of course blame the Republicans for their criminal activity, with claims that Brady Toensing, a former Vermont Trump campaign leader, is the one who tipped the FBI off to Jane’s creative financing scheme. The feds wouldn’t be investigating this if there was nothing more than Toesing’s word, but yeah, everything is everyone else’s fault, including all men.
Jane Sanders talked with The Boston Globe about this and channelled her inner-Hillary Clinton for this outrageous finger-pointing:
“I find it incredibly sexist that basically he’s going after my husband by destroying my reputation, and that’s not OK,” said Jane Sanders.
Interesting choice of words. According to Jane, Brady Toensing is sexist for “going after” Bernie. Does this mean Bernie Sanders is actually a woman or is this just more of that liberal thing where they make up new definitions for words? I secretly suspect that it’s a little of both of these things.
Another interesting part of this story is that it was Hillary Clinton’s campaign that dug up the dirt about Jane’s loan fraud. They planned to use this information against Bernie in the democratic primaries to further discredit an already disreputable candidate. And that’s actually really funny considering what a sleezeball Hillary is.
This is from Fox News:
“Jane Sanders must think Hillary Clinton’s campaign was sexist for viewing the alleged bank fraud as a major issue, too,” said Michael Ahrens, Rapid Response Director for the RNC. In publicly leaked emails from Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2015, Clinton’s team looked into using Jane Sanders’ role in the college’s failure against then-candidate Bernie Sanders.
Could this lack of accountability get any more liberal? Jane Sanders is saying that it is sexist for Hillary Clinton to dig up information that is damaging to Bernie Sanders. There are so many conflicting liberal logic principals here it threatens to rip a hole in the socialist/progressive continuum.
The only thing left for Jane Sanders now is to accuse white Hillary Clinton of racism against whiter Bernie Sanders. Well, I guess she could play the homophobia card though it’s unclear whether either of them are straight.
The biggest thing missing here is that Jane and Bernie were caught red-handed doing something illegal. They aren’t even trying to dispute the facts of the case, but rather, attacking everyone and anyone who finds this criminal activity to be troubling. Passing the blame may work with the liberal media, but the FBI and the courts will probably dismiss the man-on-man sexism and just rely on the evidence.
