The following article, Despite Major Pushback, Bernie Sanders Sticks with Felon Voting Stance, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Bernie Sanders, the de facto frontrunner in the current 2020 democratic field, may have exposed his own achilles heel on television earlier this week.

Sanders, a democratic socialist by nature, Independent Senator officially, and a democratic Presidential candidate out of necessity, has long been on the outside looking in at mainstream politics.  Now, thanks to the pure and unadulterated insanity of the world we live in, he has risen to the left’s pile of possible presidents; his views no longer so far to the left…now that the center is moving toward him.

But don’t let a desensitized democratic constituency make you believe that Bernie wouldn’t still have some bizarre, left-field ideas out there to shock us with.  Sanders himself, during a CNN town hall event this week, stated his belief that incarcerated felons should have the right to vote.  When pressed by CNN host Chris Cuomo, who asked if the Boston Marathon Bomber should be allowed to vote, Bernie upheld his belief to a stunned crowd.

The media fallout was almost immediate, and has been continuing ever since.

Bernie Sanders, for his part, is shrugging this aside and now tripling-down on his belief at a “She The People” event.

“And I was told this was a terrible idea despite the fact that in Canada and in countries all over the world — why did I say that?” Sanders said. “I said that because the right to vote is essential. If you are a citizen, you have the right to vote.”

Then Sanders compared that right to voting rights connection to race and gender.

“And that is a right we must protect because we know the history of this country. We know that women didn’t have the right to vote,” Sanders said. “We know that African Americans didn’t have the rights to vote.”

Comparing convicted felons to formerly oppressed minorities is just as crazy as it sounds, but Bernie Doesn’t seem to care.

Those incarcerated today in America made choices that led them to their peril, they were not arbitrarily shunned out of society based on some random characteristic of their being.

Bernie has no idea of how these inmates can be coerced in their cells as with mentally ill and drug addicts. The word is COERCED. Get a clue why there is a law to protect the legal voters that are capable of making their decisions.

But the dems/socialists such as old bernie are struggling to replenish their voting base. The illegal’s and dead person’s votes were not enough in 2016 so as they insist upon allowing more illegals into our country for their votes, old bernie sees numbers in the votes of criminals.
