Did You Know That 2020 Socialist Candidate For President Bernie Sanders Supported Iran During The 444 Days Of The 1979 Iranian Hostage Crisis?

by Geoffrey Grider

In April 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini took over Iran; months later 52 American diplomats and citizens, as well as citizens of other nations, were kidnapped and held hostage for 444 days in the US Embassy in Tehran.

How far has America fallen in just 41 short years? We have fallen so far that the most popular Democratic candidate for president in 2020 is a hardcore Socialist Communist who sided with Iran and against America during the 1979 Iranian Hostage Crisis. That same man in 2020 displays an open hatred for Israel and is still siding with Iranagainst America. Of course, I can only be talking about Bernie Sanders. The terror-supporting nation of Iran never had a better friend than Bernie Sanders, now imagine him as president.

Bernie Sanders has repeatedly stated that he will work to create a Palestinian state, that he thinks Israeli PM Netanyahu is a racist, and that as president he will divert US aid from Israel to Hamas. Now read today’s story about how Bernie Sanders conspired against the government of the United States and supported our enemy Iran at a time when they held Americans hostage, and understand that in 41 years, he hasn’t changed his mind one bit.

Bernie Sanders was a member of the Socialist Workers Party that supported Iran during 1979 Iranian hostage crisis

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: While a majority of Americans stood firmly for the hostages and against their kidnappers, the Socialist Workers Party (SWP), a self-proclaimed Trotskyist revolutionary party, took the opposite position and insisted that the hostages were CIA agents, according to the Daily Beast. Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders joined SWP in 1980 and served as a presidential elector in Vermont, advocating for the party’s candidates who ran on a platform that defended Iran’s keeping the hostages, the website reported. At a rally, SWP’s presidential candidate Andrew Pulley condemned “anti-Iranian hysteria around the US hostages.”

Pulley often condemned “US President Jimmy Carter’s war drive against the Iranian people,” claiming that the US “was on the brink of war with Iran,” according to the Daily Beast. He also said that the war’s aim would be “to protect the oil and banking interests of the Rockefellers and other billionaires.”

On May 21, 1981, Sanders spoke at a Pulley rally saying: “For the last 40 years the Socialist Workers Party has… been harassed, informed upon, had their offices broken into, had members of their party fired from their jobs, and have been treated with cold contempt by the United States government,” the report said.

THE SANDERS CAMPAIGN DID NOT RESPOND TO THE DAILY BEAST’S REQUEST FOR COMMENT.

After US President Donald Trump ordered a strike to take out Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) commander Qasem Soleimani, Sanders spoke out against it. “Trump’s dangerous escalation brings us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East that could cost countless lives and trillions more dollars,” Sanders wrote in a statement.

Sanders has also spoken out in favor of the 2015 nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). At a debate on Tuesday, Sanders said “We have got to undo what Trump did – bring that coalition together and make sure that Iran never gets a nuclear weapon.” According to Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA), the Democratic presidential hopeful believes that rejoining the deal is a way of not escalating tensions beyond the nuclear issue. READ MORE
