Bernie Sanders Was Once Asked to Leave Hippie Commune for Most Bernie Reason

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) announced on Tuesday that he is running for president — again.

The big 2020 news dominated headlines, but also caused some to recall a hilarious story from Sanders’s far-left past.

In her book, “We Are As Gods,” author Kate Daloz reveals the rise and fall of the “Myrtle Hill Farm” commune in Vermont. The books claims the then 30-year-old Sanders visited the commune to research an article.

The Washington Free Beacon previously reported:

He was researching an article for his Socialist Liberty Unity Party’s propaganda paper. He wanted to learn more about natural childbirth. Interest in alternative medicine was strong among members of the counterculture as part of their wider suspicion of modern science, which was associated with the sterility of hospitals and the destruction of war. “Many elements of Western medicine came under suspicion during this period, but none more so than modern obstetrics,” Deloz writes.

[…]

When he wasn’t researching for his story, he spent most of his time at the commune in “endless political discussion.”

In other words, Sanders was so busy distracting others, very little work was actually getting accomplished. Sound familiar?

One resident, Craig, even said many “resented feeling like he had to pull others out of Bernie’s orbit if any work was going to get accomplished that day,” Daloz writes.

After just three days, Craig asked Sanders to leave.

"When Bernie had stayed for Myrtle’s allotted three days, Craig politely requested that he move on," Daloz writes.

Now how does America politely tell Sanders to move on?
