Bernie Sanders Acted Hypocritically During Midterm Elections

“Uncle Bernie” Sanders is an outspoken Democratic Socialist. He wants to expand the size of government tremendously. In his pursuit to destroy American values, he lies at every turn. This was especially true during the midterms. You’ll be shocked to learn what he did.

Bernie Sanders, like most socialists, wants big government. He wants a government so big, it will run just about every aspect of our lives. From private land ownership to businesses to what kind of cars we can drive, Sanders wants the government to dictate everything.

But he can’t just snap his fingers and turn America into the next Soviet Union. He needs to trick us into supporting his terrible views. One of the biggest ways people like Bernie pushes socialism is by raising the alarm over climate change.

Environmentalism has been used to push socialism for years. I should know, I worked for the Environmental Protection Agency, under President Obama. He used the environment as an excuse to push greater and greater government regulation. Entire industries were hamstrung or outright destroyed over the ridiculously strict rules passed by our federal government.

The long-term goal is for the government to have so much control over private businesses, that it’ll essentially run them. Democrats, like Bernie, claim that without government oversight, our industries will hasten climate change and our ultimate destruction.

It’s a ruse, of course. When has big government ever solved a problem? But, despite that, you’d think Bernie Sanders was a true believer. His grave concerns over the environment must mean he does whatever he can to protect it.

Think again.

Bernie Sanders is so concerned about climate change that he spent nearly $300,000 on private air travel in October so he could speak to audiences in nine battleground states prior to November’s midterm elections.

The independent U.S. senator from Vermont also used the opportunity to test the waters for a potential 2020 presidential run, according to reports.

Sanders’ 2018 campaign committee issued an Oct. 10 payment of $297,685 to New York-based Apollo Jets, a charter jet company used by retired sports stars Derek Jeter and Shaquille O’Neal, according to federal campaign reports obtained by, a watchdog news site in Vermont.

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s nine-day, nine-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” said Arianna Jones, senior communications adviser for Friends of Bernie Sanders…

Sanders has been vocal about the need to curb the effects of climate change, calling it the “single greatest threat facing our planet.”

Not only did Sander use private jets to get around (releasing a ton of emissions into the environment), he paid a pretty penny to do so.

Keep in mind, if the CEO of a major corporation did the exact same thing, Bernie would be furious. He would rail against the “one percenters” spending huge amounts of money to pollute our atmosphere.

But I’m sure Bernie justified the pollution his trips made because he was campaigning for his political buddies.

Once again, the Democrats’ ugly, double-standard rears its head.

To make himself feel better, Sanders spent $5,000 “carbon offsets” to balance out his emissions. That’s a nice way of saying he paid to pollute our atmosphere. Bernie could have easily booked regular flights on regular airlines. Hell, he could have gone first class, if he really wanted too. It would have been thousands of dollars cheaper, and he could have avoided the offsets!

That wouldn’t do for Uncle Bernie. He has to brainwash voters, after all. That means traveling state to state, pushing his toxic plan for America. If that means polluting the atmosphere, the very thing he calls a “planetary crisis,” he’ll do it.

As usual, politics matter more to liberals than the very issues they preach about. SHARE this story if you think Sen. Sanders is a hypocrite!
