Why hasn’t Bernie Sanders fired Iowa staffer Kyle Jurek yet?

Is Bernie afraid of what will happen to his campaign if he does?

Bernie Sanders’s refusal to fire violent pro-gulag communist on staff speaks volumes.

American Thinker- By Monica Showalter

Bernie Sanders has spent years convincing voters that his Soviet honeymoon, his support for the Nicaraguan Sandinistas, his admiration for Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez were all a misunderstanding.  See, it’s Denmark, Danish-style socialism he wants for America, not a second Venezuela.  He was really quite reasonable in intentions all along.

It was exposed as garbage the other day, when James O’Keefe released an undercover video of a top-line paid Iowa staffer, Kyle Jurek, praising gulags, re-education camps, burning cities, beaten cops, and killing anyone who resists the “revolution” as the plan all along.  Worse still, he said the Bernie campaign was loaded with such people, and Bernie’s moderate claims were a mask.  So much for Bernie’s rebranding bid.

Ordinarily, that would be a firing offense.  The guy just undercut Sanders’s carefully cultivated public relations persona to win voters and made Sanders look like Mao recrudescent, Stalin reborn, and Pol Pot’s ghost, something worse than even what most suspicious Republicans have ever came up with.

Sanders’s response? 

Nothing.  No firing.  No denunciation of all the sick plans and praise for the world’s most odious dictators.  A quick dismissal of the whole thing as “political gossip,” and not by Bernie himself, but by another Iowa staffer.

“The hundreds of thousands of Iowans we’ve talked to this caucus season don’t care about political gossip; they care about making healthcare a human right, taking on climate change, making college affordable, and ending endless wars. That’s our focus,” said Ms. [Misty] Rebik in the tweet.

That’s an astonishing thing to dismiss, given the extremism of Jurek’s statement. read more

  1. Yeah,AOC,why won’t your boy Bernie cut this thug loose? Or maybe you got Jurek the job with Bernie. That would be awkward.

  2. To make health care a human. right would require. the brainless UN to act, Besides socialism and communism are brothers sharing the same father, Karl the Parasite.

  3. If Sanders cuts him loose, many of his campaign staff will go violent like Jurek says, only on Sanders and the staffers who are non-violent. Bernie’s a prisoner to his own staff.

  4. I’m with you, Cynic. That Bernie is a pretty frail guy and now, with a bad ticker, he’s probably not gonna mess with a disgruntled employee. He undoubtedly saw what happened to Harry Reid.

  5. Fascists need psychos to do their genocide.

    Obama had his ‘sons’ but fortunately he was too stupid to know how to fully use them in time.

  6. I’m waiting to hear a report about that punk being on life support in some hospital. He runs his big mouth about attacking people and busting them up which is bad enough, but he does it in bar rooms while half drunk.
    It’s just a question of when somebody will decide they’ve heard enough of that mouth and serve him up a brutal ass kicking.
    So, at least that’s something to look forward to!

  7. Why would BS fire Jurek?
    Hitler never fired Röhm (later killed him, though).

    Jurek’s just doing what he’s supposed to be doing – offering a glimpse into “Life under Bernie.”
    Jurek’s a useful idiot – archetypal of the drooling sadists necessary for the proper installation of a KZ (or Gulag) system.
    THIS is the target at which the Demonrats’ aim.

    Still doesn’t strike anyone peculiar that a guy who calls himself a Socialist is running for the nomination of the Demonrat Party? And the Demonrats, not only allow it, but encourage it?

    izlamo delenda est …

  8. Turns out Bern’s campaign manager in Iowa bailed this POS out of jail, now the question is if campaign money was used to post the bail.

    Could be glorious if this insane Benie Bro sinks the whole ship.
