Bernie Sanders has been targeted by several Presidential candidates lately because he has taken a commanding lead in the Democratic nomination for President.
Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden have come down to name-calling Sanders' supporters. "Foundation of hate” is what Warren is calling his supporters, while Biden is calling them “Bernie Bros”.
“I’ve said before that we are all responsible for what our supporters do, and I think Bernie has a lot of questions to answer here. I am particularly worried about what happened in the attacks on members of the culinary union, particularly on the women in leadership.” Warren says.
Then she added, “The whole notion of publishing their personal addresses, their phone numbers, and then making very aggressive threats against their own safety and the safety of their families. That is not how we build an inclusive Democratic Party. We do not build on a foundation of hate.”
More from the Daily Wire:
Rumors were, initially, that Sanders had said a woman “can’t win” the White House. Warren acknowledged the rumor but clarified that Sanders was referring to her — and the 2020 elections — specifically. Sanders supporters defended the remarks, noting Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign, and linking Clinton’s inability to secure the presidency to institutionalized sexism.
Sanders, as noted before, has found no need to apologize for the behavior of his supporters, saying only that “[a]nybody making personal attacks against anybody else in my name is not part of my movement,”even though the “Bernie Bros” have since taken their aggressive movement offline, engaging in near-violent behavior just last weekend after 60 Sanders delegates were disqualified from voting by the Nevada Democratic party at its annual convention in Las Vegas.
As political competitors, Biden and Warren are looking for any way to sway voters for their own benefit. Sanders has a strong lead in big numbers so that likely won't happen.
