The following article, 2020 Dems Have Gone So Far Left That Even CNN Hosts Are Stunned Speechless [WATCH], was first published on Flag And Cross.
Democrat Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says he’s all in favor of allowing felons (including terrorists like the Boston bomber) to vote from prison.
A crazy thought is there ever was one.
Fellow liberal candidate Kamala Harris then claimed she would consider the issue.
From Daily Wire:
CNN’s Don Lemon asked Harris if she supported comments made earlier in the night by socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who said that convicted terrorists, including the Boston Marathon bomber, should be allowed to vote in U.S. elections while in prison.
Harris responded, “I agree that the right to vote is one of the very important components of citizenship and it is something that people should not be stripped of needlessly, which is why I have been long an advocate of making sure that the formally incarcerated are not denied a right to vote, which is the case in so many states in our country, in some states permanently deprived of the right to vote.”
Lemon followed up, “But people who are in — convicted, in prison, like the Boston Marathon bomber, on death row, people who are convicted of sexual assault, they should be able to vote?”
Kamala: “I think we should have that conversation.”
Now, even CNN hosts are stunned at how far left these Democrats have gone:
The very next day, Kamala changed her mind.
She said, “Do I think that people who commit murder, people who are terrorists should be deprived of their rights? Yeah, I do.”

A CNN panel blasted Harris for flipping, especially so soon:
On Sanders, via Daily Wire:
Socialist Bernie Sanders said during a CNN Democratic town hall event that he would let the Boston Marathon bomber, sex predators, and murderers vote in U.S. elections while in prison.
An audience member asked, “Would [you] support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer? Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?”
Sanders noted, “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished. They may be in jail 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole life. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime. But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope … I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”
Bernie topped it off with this final line, “I believe every single person does have the right to vote.”
