1. THREAD: Who is the REAL #BernieSanders?

Since Sanders diehards are determined to hijack the @DNC and torpedo other 2020 contenders, and since he refuses to become a Democrat but wants to hog their spotlight and attack them, let's take a closer look at who this man is. (1/10)
2. The REAL Bernie Sanders:

First elected with NRA help, then repeatedly voted WITH the gun lobby. Opposed the Brady Bill five times.

Co-sponsored and aggressively pushed a bill to dump Vermont's radioactive waste on the low-income Latino community of #SierraBlanca, Texas.
3. The REAL Bernie Sanders, continued:

Has echoed the worst Republican talking points on immigration:…

Has refused to release full tax returns.

Supported the $1.5 trillion F-35 boondoggle.

Ran a campaign of personal destruction against Hillary Clinton that HE INITIALLY CONCEDED WAS A "CHARACTER ASSAULT" but that he kept pushing long past the time she was the obvious nominee.…
5. The REAL Bernie Sanders, continued:

72 hours before the election of Donald Trump, inexplicably tweeted a defense of Trump voters.

Has continually pandered to Trump voters while dismissing the diverse Democratic base by arguing that Dems must "go beyond identity politics."
6. The REAL Bernie Sanders, continued:

Several articles have been published that probe beyond the fabricated progressive purist image that his diehard followers bought into and that the mainstream media continue to foist on the public.

For example:…
7. The REAL Bernie Sanders, continued:

During the 2016 campaign, Sanders and his aides and surrogates were perfectly willing to throw Planned Parenthood and other progressive groups and leaders under the bus as the "establishment."

Details here:…
8. The REAL Bernie Sanders, continued:

His incredibly disturbing 1972 "rape" essay deserves more scrutiny, and will get it if he were ever to be a nominee. His efforts to distance himself from it as "satire" are implausible. These were his troubling views as a grown man.
