Bernie Sanders shirtless in the Soviet Union: 1988 video

Top Rope Travis is a rabid leftist who voted for avowed socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) in the 2016 primary election, and who is part of a campaign to draft Beto O’Rourke to run for the presidency in 2020 (@RunBeto2020).

A former 3-term representative for Texas’s 16th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives, O’Rourke narrowly lost the 2018 Texas Senate race to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz. See him dressed up as the Baphomet here.

On January 28, 2019, Travis tweeted a video of then 47-year-old Bernie Sanders with a group of other Vermonters, in a visit to the former Soviet Union in 1988.

The group was an official delegation from Burlington, VT, led by Sanders, their mayor. The trip was also a honeymoon as Sanders had just married his second (and current) wife, Jane, who would go on to become the ignoble, $160k/year president of Burlington College, from which she resigned in 2011, leaving the college with a crushing debt that led to its closure in 2016.

The video shows Sanders and his group sitting at a table, chatting and singing.

For some bizarre reason, Sanders and other men in the group are shirtless, exposing their naked torsos. We hope it was just their torsos that were naked.

The video clip ends with the group singing “This land is my land”.

Travis has since deleted that tweet.

Anyone else notice the references to pizza and ice cream evidenced in the video? I wonder if that had some covert meaning…back then?

My guess is that it had the same meaning then as it does now. Those early visitors to the former USSR were there to plunder. They came out of the woodwork like cockroaches.

Looks like after her initial exposure to bad economics his new wife went on to bankrupt a college. You don’t have to be competent to be a leftist. In fact its considered bad form.
