Bernie Sanders on ISIS and Freedom of Religion
Bernie Sanders has had a major impact on the 2016 Presidential election, and, win or lose, he has energized a lot of Americans who were not previously involved in politics. One policy area that has not gotten much attention in the Democratic race between Sanders and Clinton is foreign policy, and, specifically, the juncition of foreign policy with domestic civil rights.
While Donald Trump loudly announces various anti-Muslim ideas that clearly violate the Constitution, Senator Sanders has been upfront in his support of civil liberties. For example, in a twitter feed from November, 2015, Sanders declared that, “We will not destroy ISIS by undermining the Constitution and our religious freedoms.”
We will not destroy ISIS by undermining the
Constitution and our religious freedoms.
