The leftist e-magazine .Mic published “Twitter Reacts to Bernie Sanders’ Claims that Climate Change Caused Rise in Terrorism”:

 

“In wake of a series of terrorist attacks that struck Paris on Friday night [Nov. 13th], the first question posed to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during the following Saturday night’s Democratic debate was whether he still believes climate change is the No. 1 national security threat to the United States—and Twitter users had a lot to say about his answer.

“‘Absolutely,’ he said. ‘In fact, climate change is directly related to the growth of terrorism.’ Sanders added that climate change will cause farmers in countries ‘all over the world’ to struggle with a scarcity of water and land to grow crops, which Sanders said studies have shown leads to international conflict.

Some Twitter users mocked Sanders’ response, saying he should tell the French people that but wouldn’t say that if he were face to face with a member of the Islamic State group.”

Bernie Sanders is the junior US Senator from Vermont.  He’s a member of the Democrat Party and an avowed socialist.  He’s a balding, white-haired gentleman and 74 years old.  He’s nobody’s idea of a left-wing, radical revolutionary.

When Senator Sanders announced his candidacy for the Democrat nomination for President last May, it seemed to be a fool’s errand.   Hillary Clinton seemed virtually unstoppable.

My first reaction to his candidacy was, “Awww–isn’t that cute?  An elderly, white-haired socialist is running for President.  Gee, it’s really true; anyone can grow up to run for President in the USA.  Is this a great country, or what?”

Of course, I didn’t believe Bernie had a chance in heck of winning the Democrat nomination or even raising any funds.  I kind of expected him to campaign from his walker, make a brave show of it, take a nap and quickly fade from the campaign.

I was wrong.
