Socialist Senator Sanders Hawks His Book Like an Evil Capitalist

Bernie Sanders Confronted: 'How Does an Avowed Socialist Sell a Book?'

(By Jason Mattera, Human Events) - Vermont’s Sen. Bernie Sanders is a different kind of socialist: the kind who will partake in the capitalist venture of freely exchanging money for products… at least when it comes to selling his own book.

The self-described socialist is out promoting his straight-to-paperback 'The Speech: A Historic Filibuster on Corporate Greed and the Decline of Our Middle Class', and was eager to sign and sell copies at corporate entities like Barnes & Noble in Washington, D.C.

That’s where HUMAN EVENTS caught up with Sanders to ask him how exactly an avowed socialist squares his collectivist worldview with the fact that he’s taking a bite of the forbidden fruit of capitalism? Is he giving away his “profits” to the federal government?
