I saw this last night and could not believe it.
Bernie Sanders says terrorists like the Boston Marathon bomber, rapists, and murderers should be able to vote from jail. pic.twitter.com/PL0fpMSGwo

And because Bernie said it, Kamala Harris (and soon the rest of the Democratic clown car) said it too.
You can tell just how extreme this postilion is when both Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, very incredulously, ask Sander and Harris if they are sure that they want Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to be able to vote from prison. Even CNN’s two most hackish hacks could tell this wasn’t going to go over well with Middle America.
Forget Tsarnaev for a second, here is the thoughts that came to my mind.
This same right would go to Nikolas Cruz and James Holmes.
Those mass shooters were the inspiration for gun control in Florida, Colorado, and other states.
So by the standards of Bernie and Harris (and soon the rest) a mass shooting is terrible enough that innocent, law abiding gun owners must be collectively punished with the revocation of their Constitutional rights, but the shooters themselves cannot be disenfranchised.
It really hammers home how much more they hate law abiding gun owners than Left leaning criminals.
Also, this paves the way for the Democrats to use violent, criminal thugs as political enforcers, as other Socialist dictators have done in the past. Especially when combined with the Ban The Box Campaign to prohibit goverment and private employers from asking about criminal convictions on job applications.
Some radical Bernie Bro would no longer have any incentive not to go around smashing conservation skulls with bike locks.
So what if he goes to prison, he can still vote for Bernie from behind bars and Bernie will give him a job when he gets out. So smash away to ensure a Bernie victory because a Bernie victory means committing a felony will have no long term repercussions.
The Republican with brain damage from a TBI will have to deal with that for the rest of his life, but that’s neither here nor there for Bernie.
