Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) took it on the chin during a stop in New Hampshire after a voter called him out for his flip-flop on mass immigration.
Before Sanders began running for president, he opposed open borders and mass immigration because he knew it would drive wages for American workers down. He capitulated to win radicalized Democrat voters on the campaign trail, and the so-called people’s champion threw U.S. workers under the bus.
“I’m here because you seem like one of the most authentic candidates running right now so I wanted to hear what you had to say and how authentic you really are, and by the way, nobody believes for a minute that you told Elizabeth Warren that a woman can’t…make it for President,” a woman named Christine said to Sanders, explaining that she is a swing voter who has voted Republican and Democrat in the past.
“So one issue you have not been consistent on is open borders,” she continued. “When you first ran, you said it was a Koch Brothers scheme, and seemed to recognize that low-wage workers being dumped into the country does not help low-wage workers.”
“Can you explain why you changed on that issue? Did you to have to change because the donors seem to want the low-wage workers?” she asked.
Sanders responded by talking out of both sides of his mouth.
“What I believe in absolutely is I don’t believe in open borders. If open borders, anybody can come from any place in the world. There is no country in the history of the world, I think, that has ever had that view. That is not my view,” Sanders responded.
He went off track from there, explaining globalist economic dogma about how prices would skyrocket if Trump deported illegal immigrants.
“We have 11 million undocumented here. Many of those workers by the way are being exploited right now. Trump wants to throw everybody out of the country. If he threw out people out of the country, the price of food in this country would skyrocket. Who do you think is picking the crops and planting all over this country?” Sanders said.
He then outlined his policy to give amnesty to illegal aliens and prevent ICE from being able to enforce immigration law.

Sanders wasn’t always this way. He used to go on Lou Dobbs and talk with the patriotic talk show host about why mass immigration harms the American worker.
This video of Sanders talking to Dobbs on CNN from 2007 seems straight out of bizarro world in the current political landscape:
This questioner nailed Sanders on his hypocrisy and exposed Sanders’ Achilles heel if he becomes the Democrat nominee and takes on President Trump in 2020.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
