Leaked Docs: DNC Discussed Attacking Bernie’s Jewish Faith

6

A Democratic National Committee staffer suggested using Sen. Bernie Sanders’ faith as a talking point against him, leaked DNC emails reveal. In a May 5 email, DNC staffer Brad Marshall asked whether the DNC could “get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist.”

Though Sanders is not explicitly named in the email, he was the only Jewish candidate in contention for the presidency at the time. The DNC is supposed to remain neutral, not favoring one Democratic candidate over another. “This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist,” Marshall’s email reads. Read more at THE INTERCEPT.

  1. This report can’t possibly be true. It is only those evil white racist rabid anti Semitic Republicans who can do such a wicked deed.

  2. the title is a little misleading based on the content of the email which implies they would prefer a believing Jew than an atheist gentile.

  3. “Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist.” It seems the attack is not about his “Jewish” faith but actually the fact that he’s an atheist who does not believe in G-D and therefor has nothing to do with Jewish heritage like he claims.

  4. The title of this article is incorrect. It should read, “Leaked Docs: DNC Discussed Attacking Bernie’s Lack of Faith”

  5. Personally i dont care if someone would have asked Bernie because he’s an oysvorf anyway. The point is that the Democrat party, the party of the people and all that bologna were told about that mighty party, would go after religion is appalling.
