(Liberty Bell) – What is it about leftists? It seems like the more far-left someone leans, the more likely they are to be complete and total hypocrites.
And none more so than climate alarmists, who demand the rest of us live in poverty in an upended economic system while they fly around on private jets.
Do they think they get a special pass because they’re doing their part by flying around and yelling at everyone about climate change?
Or, in the case of Senator Bernie Sanders, if they’re running for president.
Sanders, the “Democratic Socialist” who just won the New Hampshire Democratic primary election, may be looking forward to bread lines and a dismantled global economy, but he doesn’t mind owning three houses and flying on private airplanes.
Do as I say and not as I do, I guess.
Sanders was recently photographed flying first class on those evil gas guzzlers that he preaches us mere plebs have no need to utilize.
The photo was posted by Hank Thomas, CEO of Strategic Cyber Ventures.

Flying first class because he is a millionaire, would fly his own plane if he was a billionaire… remind me again what he stands for?

Is this the First Class Gulag?🙄
No worries I'm sure he evenly distributed his seat time with his supporters in the back? Distributed his FF mileage earned? Shared the free drinks/snacks he got?
Spread the wealth as they say. 👿

A nervous Socialist in first class.
Always on donor/taxpayer dollars,
In route to one of his three homes,
Intimidated by seeing your eyeball,
Wanna really #FeelTheBern?
He made $1,062,626 in 2016 alone;
he donated less than 1% to charity.
When Bernie’s not at one of his three house or in first class, he’s flying in private jets.
“Bernie Sanders spent more on private jet travel in three months than his closest competitors in the Democratic presidential race,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“Federal Election Commission filings that the presidential campaigns submitted on Friday for October through December reveal that the socialist Vermont senator’s campaign spent $1.2 million on private air travel through charter flight companies Advanced Aviation Team and Apollo Jets.”
Sanders, apparently not a fan of the hoi polloi, has a long history of flying on private jets. In a single month in 2018, he forked out nearly $300,000 flying around on private jets.
“According to federal campaign finance reports, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator’s official 2018 Senate campaign committee, spent $297,685.50 with Apollo Jets, a private charter jet service headquartered in New York,” the website VtDigger.com reported. “The report does not break down the number of trips or where they were taken. The check was issued on Oct. 10, according to the report.”
