The Washington Post reports:
Moments after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) took the stage at his campaign rally in Phoenix on Thursday night, the crowd was on its feet cheering madly for the Democratic presidential candidate.
But those cheers were swiftly replaced by deafening boos when Sanders’s supporters noticed that one man standing behind the senator in an upper section of the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum wasn’t waving a “Bernie” sign like many of those around him.
Instead, the man was holding a red flag above his head — and it was emblazoned with a swastika. Videos showed Sanders only turning around in time to witness the man being escorted out. “Whoever it was, I think they’re a little outnumbered tonight,” Sanders told the crowd with a smile.
This is just sickening. It’s 2020 and a rally for a Jewish presidential candidate was terrorized with a swastika: https://t.co/FZvdmOZE0Z
