(TheFreedomFlag)- Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has always been a little cooky. Comments he made over the weekend may be signaling that he’s losing it altogether.
The progressive senator who’s finished as the runner-up in the last two Democratic presidential primaries tried to justify President Donald Trump’s removal from office by saying if big tech companies are censoring him, then he must be too dangerous to hold office.
While it’s a foregone conclusion that the House of Representatives will impeach Trump this week, it’s not so certain as to what will happen if the case goes to trial in the Senate. The Senate overwhelmingly shot down Democrats’ efforts to remove Trump from office when he was impeached on two counts last year.
It seems that more Senate Republicans would support Trump’s removal this time around, but it’s probably unlikely that enough would jump ship to actually get it done.
In the meantime, liberals like Sanders are pushing hard for Trump’s removal. And they seem to be grasping at straws for reasons to support their thinking.
Sanders’ recent justification sounds even more wonky than some of his colleagues. Over the weekend, he suggested that if big tech companies believe Trump should be removed from their platforms, then that means he should be removed from the White House as well.
On Saturday, Sanders tweeted:
“Let’s be clear. If Trump is too dangerous to send out a tweet or a Facebook post, he’s too dangerous to be commander-in-chief. Donald Trump must be removed from office immediately and held accountable for his horrific acts of sedition, violence and chaos.”
According to Sanders, apparently the executives in power at big tech companies are the arbiters of everything right. Since they determined that the president was too dangerous to be on their platforms, then he must be too dangerous to lead the United States of America.
That’s not just a surprising conclusion to make, it’s a rather scary one, too. These comments are from a long-time member of the United States Senate who ran for president in each of the last two elections. He even got out to an early lead among Democrats, and has built a huge following.
He is, in fact, the leader of the progressive movement in the Democratic Party, even if other younger members of the House of Representatives are the ones making the biggest headlines.
And now, Sanders is touting a message that big tech company executives are the ones who we should all trust the most in this country. If Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey decides that Trump should be banned from his social media platform, then there is no questioning his decisions.
If Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg feels that the president is too dangerous and must be suspended from his social media platform, then the man must be removed from the White House immediately.
Bernie should take some time to think about his comments before he puts them out for the whole world to see. Maybe he’ll realize just how outlandish they are and the story they tell about liberals’ allegiance to big tech.
