Bernie Sanders: Biden Regime’s Support For Israel “May Be Biden’s Vietnam”

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders recently proclaimed that President Joe Biden has placed himself in a politically-compromised position by getting behind Israel in the Israel-Hamas war.

Sanders made these comments during an interview appearance on CNN on May 2, 2024. 

He made a 1960s era analogy by pointing to then-President Lyndon Johnson’s move to not run in 1968 due to the anti-war protests that his government had to confront at the time. Countless student activists took to the streets to protest the war in Vietnam, which placed major pressure on the Johnson administration to reconsider its escalation of the conflict. 

“I worry very much that President Biden is putting himself in a position where he has alienated not just young people, but a lot of the Democratic base in terms of his views on Israel and this war,” Sanders stated.

“This may be Biden’s Vietnam,”  Sanders added.

Sanders called on Biden to to stop “giving a blank check” to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his far-right wing coalition government.

Indeed, with the radical Left pounding the pavement and Arab voters in key swing states like Michigan being disgusted by the Biden regime’s policies with respect to Israel, there’s a strong chance that the Israeli military quagmire could sink the Biden campaign. 

America First nationalists should use this moment to make the case for a restrained, non-interventionist foreign policy that takes neither side in the Israel-Hamas conflict. Simply put, this conflict does not feature a pressing national interest. If anything, the US’s relationship with Israel is an entangling alliance that many of the Founding Fathers warned about that could potentially ensnare the US in a nasty geopolitical blunder. 

The focus here should be on exposing Israel’s noxious influence on American politics and the need for the US to end its special relationship with Israel. From there, the Us can exit the Middle East and re-oriented its foreign policy priorities to where they’re most needed — at the US’s  southern border with Mexico.
