Washington, DC — Bernie Sanders has always been known for his hard left-wing radical political beliefs . . .
Thanks to the National Rifle Association, Bernie Sanders was given a seat at the table.
The Washington Post reports about the NRA’s endorsement of Bernie Sanders in 1990.
They used the money their members gave them to help elect Bernie Sanders to Congress:
“A few days before Election Day in 1990, the National Rifle Association sent a letter to it’s 12,000 members in Vermont, with an urgent message about the race for the state’s single house seat.
Vote for the socialist, the gun rights group said. It’s important.
Bernies Sanders is a more honorable choice for Vermon sportsmen than Peter Smith”, Wrote Wayne LaPierre, who was – and still is – a top official at the national NRA, backing Sanders over the Republican incumbent.
That was odd.
Smith had changed his mind about a ban on assault weapons. The NRA and its allies wanted him beaten. They didn’t much care who beat him.
“‘It is not about Peter Smith Vs. Bernie Sanders”, LaPierre wrote, according to news coverage from the time. “It is about integrity in politics’.”
That’s not the only thing the NRA has done for Sanders.
In addition, they gave him over $11,000 of its members money in the 2016 election.
This helped Bernie build data bases, contact voters and more to spread his anti-gun agenda around.
Now, Sanders is a top contender for the Democrat nomination for President of the United States.
Chickens coming home to roost at the NRA . . .
