‘Winning Allies’ Bernie Sanders on Countdown with Keith Olbermann


I happen to come across this clip and had to share it immediately. This episode originally aired on 10-4-11. Click the link below to watch this very telling video. Senator Bernie Sanders begins at the 6:50 mark speaking about the collapse of the economy caused by the greed in Wall Street. He says, “…here we are 3 years later and what kind of punishment have these crooks that caused this recession [been given].” Listen to the senator call out “the top 400 wealthiest people.”

The former Massachusetts governor labeled the Occupy Wall Street movement  “dangerous” and “class warfare.”

The irony is that Romney is right, class warfare is being waged in America today.” Sanders said. “The problem is, the wrong side is winning.”

“In America now you have the most unequal distribution of income and wealth of any major country on Earth, with the top 400 wealthiest people owning more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans.

Sanders added: “With that wealth, these economic royalists if you like — which FDR (Franklin D. Roosevelt) called them — exercise enormous political power. That is what class warfare is about. A few people on the top exercising enormous power and enormous amounts of money in order to push down the rest of the population.”
