Woman Forcibly Removed From Sanders Event After Asking If Democratic Socialist Will Give Up ‘Your Planes’
“Never trust a socialist with a summer house.” — Colin Quinn
For a socialist, Sen. Bernie Sanders is doing pretty darn well. He’s a millionaire, he’s got three houses (including a lakefront home with an acre of frontage), and he loves his private jets.
Oh, but don’t ever — ever — ask Bernie about his 1 Percent status.
On Saturday, a woman tried to do just that — and she got forcibly removed from a campaign event in San Antonio, Texas.
The woman — who was wearing a Trump shirt — shouted repeatedly at Sanders about his jet travel, even as he droned on about climate change (Sanders supports a policy being pushed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called the “Green New Deal,” which would cost an estimated $93 trillion over 10 years).
“Are you going to give up your planes? Your jets! You’re a hypocrite! Are you going to give away your jets?” the woman, identified by InfoWars as Martha Doss of activist group Just Another Channel, shouted to Sanders.
Outside of the venue, Doss explained that she wanted to highlight Sanders’ hypocrisy on climate change.
I was just saying if he was going to give away his jets, his planes, if he’s going to give them away, because he’s a hypocrite talking about climate change. He’s such a hypocrite,” she said. “He talks about climate change, I’m wondering if he’s going to give up his jets. How did he get here? He probably got here by a plane.”
When Bernie’s not at one of his three house or in first class, he’s flying in private jets.
“Bernie Sanders spent more on private jet travel in three months than his closest competitors in the Democratic presidential race,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“Federal Election Commission filings that the presidential campaigns submitted on Friday for October through December reveal that the socialist Vermont senator’s campaign spent $1.2 million on private air travel through charter flight companies Advanced Aviation Team and Apollo Jets.”
Sanders, apparently not a fan of the hoi polloi, has a long history of flying on private jets. In a single month in 2018, he forked out nearly $300,000 flying around on private jets.
“According to federal campaign finance reports, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator’s official 2018 Senate campaign committee, spent $297,685.50 with Apollo Jets, a private charter jet service headquartered in New York,” the website VtDigger.com reported. “The report does not break down the number of trips or where they were taken. The check was issued on Oct. 10, according to the report.”
