At this point nothing will make me like him :ohwell:

Still has my vote if he's the one to beat Trump though, I'm not that stubborn.

I will never understand the pure hatred for Bernie from some Democrats. 

God forbid a politician stand up for the working class and fight for things that should be our human rights. Things that are normalized in most Western nations.

I mean, I agree Fox News is pure propaganda but that doesn’t sound like a bad idea :ally:

He spilled the tea and did not hold back! This proves that his policies are not outrageous. Just because they're labeled as "Progressive" or "Leftist," does not mean that they are *not sensible and reasonable! It's all about framing, and the GOP know how to do this in regards to their base/voters (i.e. "Affordable Care Act"/"Obama Care").

He made an excellent point in that if we make this election all about Trump, Democrats will lose.  He also articulated what Democratic Socialism is quite nicely.  And I think he approached the topic of his 1%-er status appropriately (all my friends and neoliberal Dems always **** on him for that) but he is advocating for a policy that would affect his taxes in a "negative" way :ohwell:

Anyway, I adore this man and am tired of people putting him down when the disparaging remarks are typically used to label him a socialist or another rich person in a mansion (he is still a US career politician in some senses but has always been on the front lines for the every day American and marginalized communities) and I especially get miffed about the ageism directed at him -- looking at you Buttigeig and this "new generation" talk :triggered:

It wast a conservative audience.  So he didnt convert anybody. I haven't seen it but I read they also applauded late term abortion and Ilhan Omar. 

When they have a Democrat on they're not going to have a crowd of right wingers that will boo all the time.  No other Democrat would ever agree to come on.  My guess is the audience was mixed if not overly loaded with liberals or Bernie supporters. They screen their audiences.

There's also the fact that Fox and Republicans would like nothing more than to run against a socialist in the general election or at least help him to cause problems for establishment Democrats in the primaries. So helping Sanders by having a good  townhall would be in their interest as well.

The fumes of white supremacist if America gets a Jewish president. 

On other hand i could imagine hate crimes against Jews would rise even more.

He’s as Jewish as Obama was a Muslim. 

Bernie is agnostic.

You can be Jewish and Atheist. He literally said: “I’m very proud to be Jewish, Being Jewish is so much of what I am.”

Moreover,  Antisemites don’t really care if you are religious or not. 

“It’s not like he’s embarrassed or ashamed of [his faith],” said Richard Sugarman, an Orthodox Jew who is among Sanders’ closest friends and a professor of philosophy. “He continues to be a universalist; he doesn’t focus on those issues.”

The Jewish Vermonters who know Sanders say his reluctance to make his Judaism central to his public persona is a function of his preference for the economic over the esoteric, as well as a libertarianism typical both of the state and its Jewish community – one that embraces expressions of faith and the lack of them.“
