This Christian University hosted the self-proclaimed socialist, Bernie Sanders, and he had no hesitation in crapping on America and twisting the Bible to promote his socialist ideas.
Speaking at Liberty University Monday, self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) declared that the United States was founded on “racist principles,” among other statements about the lack of justice and morality regarding income inequality.
Sanders, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, took questions following his address at the conservative Christian college, including one on healing racial divisions.
“A nation that in many ways was created — I’m sorry to have to say this, from way back — on racist principles, that’s a fact, we have come a long way as a nation,” Sanders answered. “My guess is that probably not everybody here is an admirer or voted for Barack Obama. But the truth is, in 2008, this country took a huge step forward in voting for a candidate based on his ideas and not the color of his skin.”
“In recent years, we have seen a proliferation of millionaires and billionaires, while at the same time the United States of America has the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country on earth,” Sanders said. “How can we, I want you to go into your hearts, how can we talk about morality, about justice, when we turn our backs on the children of our country?”
“In the last two years, the top 15 percent saw their wealth increase by $170 billion and 45 million Americans live in poverty,” Sanders added. “That, in my view, is not justice. That is a rigged economy designed by the wealthiest people in this country to benefit the wealthiest people in this country at the expense of everybody else.”
