Sanders Team Puts the Bern on Freedom of Speech

Angry Bernie SandersIt’ll come as a surprise to no one that Bernie Sanders abhors free speech as much as any other politician. Sanders disciples are no doubt complicit, because it’s OK to silence people who might not be their hero’s friends.

But it’s not OK, and people who can reason understand this.

Here’s the advanced directive from campaign staff for Sanders’ rally at Santa Fe Community College today.

None of this will shock anyone familiar with high-stakes political campaigns, because this kind of control has become commonplace. Even among purported underdogs who say they genuinely care about #thestruggle.

Whether we’re talking Bernie Sanders or anyone else who puts the kibosh on freedom of speech, that is not “A Future to Believe In.”
