Sanders’ Marxist Campaign: The reality of who they really are.

"This is not who we are," has become standard PR boilerplate groups and organizations use to distance themselves from embarrassing situations. The absence of those words from a major Presidential campaign, however, should make honest voters question that candidate's credibility.
Less than a month before the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, four field organizers for Sen. Bernie Sanders in Iowa and South Carolina advocated violence, slave labor and the Stalinist repression of dissent while expressing sympathy for Marxist ideology. Two even bragged about their Communist credentials.
All four spoke to undercover reporters for Project Veritas, which released videos of the surreptitious interviews. Yet no major national newspaper or television network has pursued the story, nor confronted Sanders about those comments. Nevertheless, the senator's campaign went into siege mode.
Misty Rebik, Sanders' state director in Iowa, called Project Veritas' interviews "political gossip" on Twitter before locking her account. The state director in South Carolina, Jessica Bright, followed suit. So did 14 other field directors and coordinators in both states -- and Georgia Parke, Sanders' national deputy digital communications director.
On Jan. 31, John Robinson, the campaign's chief operations officer, told campaign workers by e-mail to "avoid saying anything that would reflect poorly on the campaign" and to "always assume that you are being recorded."
In South Carolina, Sanders' representatives called police when Project Veritas' reporters appeared unannounced at a field office and tried to interview campaign officials. When an officer confronted the reporters, he told them none of Sanders' officials would offer any public comment. Then he made a remark with amazing implications.
"They are aware of the videos you guys took, the undercover stuff," the officer said. "It's one of those things where they wish he hadn't said that, but they're still standing by him." (emphasis added)
"Him" is Martin Weissgerber, a field organizer whose father was a Marxist and whose home contained copies of Marx's and Engels' works.
"I always said that I'm a Communist," Weissgerber said. "I believe everything has been formed by class struggle. I'm all about the complete seizure of the means of production, nationalizing everything. Guillotine the rich."
