Bernie Sanders

Geburtstag: 8. September 1941

Bernard „Bernie“ Sanders ist ein US-amerikanischer parteiloser Politiker, der seit 2007 den Bundesstaat Vermont im US-Senat vertritt. Von 1991 bis 2007 war Sanders Mitglied des Repräsentantenhauses. Im Senat gehört er der Fraktion der Demokratischen Partei an. Sanders trat in der Vorwahl der Demokraten für die Präsidentschaftswahl 2016 an und war deshalb zeitweilig als Demokrat registriert. Mit seiner Kampagne gewann er für seine Reformvorstellungen insbesondere viele Junge und Linke in den USA und unterlag nach einem lange offenen Rennen der schließlich nominierten Hillary Clinton.

Sanders bezeichnet seine politische Orientierung als „democratic socialism“ .

Zitate Bernie Sanders

„There are no "human" oppressors. Oppressors have lost their humanity.“

—  Bernie Sanders

"Man – and Woman" in Vermont Freeman (Mid-February 1972)
1970s
Kontext: There are no "human" oppressors. Oppressors have lost their humanity. On one hand "slavishness," on the other hand "pigness." Six of one, half dozen of the other. Who wins?
Many women seem to be walking a tightrope now. Their qualities of love, openness, and gentleness were too deeply enmeshed with qualities of dependency, subservience, and masochism. How do you love — without being subservient? How do you maintain a relationship without giving up your identity and without getting strung out? How do you reach out and give your heart to your lover, but maintain the soul which is you?

„The political revolution is not about one election or one candidate. It is about transforming America and continuing the fight for economic, social, racial and environmental justice. We have to continue to work together to advance the progressive future we all support.“

—  Bernie Sanders

„The bottom line is when Senator Inhofe says global warming is a hoax, he is just dead wrong, according to the vast majority of climate scientists.“

—  Bernie Sanders

Regarding Global warming, [Gerken, James, Senator Bernie Sanders: Climate Change Is Real, Senator Inhofe Is 'Dead Wrong', http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/31/bernie-sanders-climate-change_n_1723334.html, 31 July 2012, The Huffington Post, 16 October 2013]

„Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms. Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.“

—  Bernie Sanders

Remarks regarding the shooting at practice for a congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia (14 June 2017) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcH2i7um5sw
2010s, 2017
Kontext: I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign. I am sickened by this despicable act, and let me be as clear as I can be: Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms. Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.
My hopes and prayers are that Representative Scalise, congressional staff and the Capitol Police Officers who were wounded make a quick and full recovery. I also want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to prevent further harm.

„This idea of suddenly, one day or maybe a night, rounding up 11 million people and taking them outside of this country is a vulgar, absurd idea that I would hope very few people in America support.“

—  Bernie Sanders

2010s, 2016, Democratic Presidential Debate in Miami (9 March 2016)
Kontext: Poverty is increasing. And if wages are going down, I don’t know why we need millions of people to be coming into this country as guestworkers who will work for lower wages than American workers and drive wages down even lower than they are right now.... You have guestworker programs that have been described by the.... In this country, immigration reform is a very hot debate. It’s divided the country. But I would hope very much, that as we have that debate, we do not, as Donald Trump and others have done, resort to racism and xenophobia and bigotry. This idea of suddenly, one day or maybe a night, rounding up 11 million people and taking them outside of this country is a vulgar, absurd idea that I would hope very few people in America support.

„You can’t become a billionaire stepping over children sleeping on the street.“
