What an insane week it has been. There is so much talk about the coronavirus, but let's try and put that out of mind for now so we don't get consumed by it.
During a Bernie Sanders campaign rally last week, there was something that happened that you would honestly not expect...unless they were some protestor trying to prove a point or make Bernie look bad, which he can actually do just fine on his own.
But during the rally, something happened that made the crowd started booing at Bernie.
He was clearly confused about what was going on, so he turned around and didn't see anything. It wasn't until later when he walked off the stage that he learned what had taken place. Someone was waving a Nazi flag in the stands.
According to Slate:
Sen. Bernie Sanders expressed shock and disbelief Sunday when he was asked about the man who unfurled a Nazi flag at one of his rallies on Thursday. “Obviously, it is unspeakable. It is disgusting. It is something, I got to tell you, I never expected in my life, as an American, to see a swastika at a major political rally,” the Vermont senator said on CNN’s State of the Union. “It’s horrible.”
“He was behind me. And I was speaking to the crowd and I saw crowds booing and I turned around, I didn’t quite see what it was. I learned about it right after I left the stage,” Sanders said. “The idea that there was a swastika, a symbol of everything that this country stands against—we lost 400,000 people fighting that symbol, fighting Nazism. Six million Jews were killed, other people were killed. The most devastating war in the history of humanity.” Sanders’ extended family in Poland died during the Holocaust, something he learned about in detail when he appeared on the PBS show Finding Your Roots.

Horrifying. Last night, a man brandished a Nazi flag at a Bernie Sanders rally in Arizona.
It’s a clear attack on the only Jewish presidential candidate — in a time of rising white nationalism & antisemitism spurred on by Trump & the GOP.
It must be condemned all over the news. pic.twitter.com/Y0XEbpvCtk
