Vermont’s “Independent” Senator Bernie Sanders likes to portray himself as a bit of a lone wolf socialist – the conscience of the Senate left.
In my new book: “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the US Congress,” I devote 10 of its 700 pages to Sanders.
Bernie Sanders may be technically Independent, but in reality, he is merely a mouthpiece for the US’ largest Marxist group, Democratic Socialists of America. Despite DSA’s comparatively innocuous name, it is actually a crypto-communist group, basing its tactics on the gradualist theories of Italian Communist Party theoretician, Antonio Gramsci.
Bernie Sanders has been in the socialist orbit since he joined the Young Socialist League during his college years in Chicago.
He’s been a mouthpiece for DSA since their foundation in the 1980s. He pushes their policies in the Senate, attends their conferences and accepts their financial support.
