Yes this is a real thing. No Bernie Sanders didn’t have a public meltdown of epic, Charlie-Sheen proportions. This is what he believes. It’s what he’s always believed.
Remember this when you leftist friends talk about how “radical” the “far right” has become in this country. Please, remember this.
In an interview with NBC News, Bernie Sanders stated:
“When radical, socialist Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, I think the highest marginal tax rate was something like 90 percent.”
The interviewer followed up by asking, “When you think about something like 90 percent, you don’t think that’s obviously too high?” Sanders replied
“No. What I think is obscene, when you have the top one-tenth of one percent owning almost as much as the bottom 90.”
Again, remember that media narrative that Conservatives are becoming “too radical”? Well allow me to compare the two factions through this scientifically calibrated, internet meme below.
Can you spot the “extremist”?
