Like all leftists, Bernie Sanders is a fascist authoritarian at heart, and now he wants people arrested and made into “criminals” just for engaging in legal businesses he doesn’t like.
Like all fascists, Sanders wants to use the iron boot of government to criminalize his opponents. Like any tinpot dictator would.
Herr Sanders jumped to Twitter on Thursday afternoon and called for executives of fossil fuel companies to be “criminally prosecuted.”
“Fossil fuel executives should be criminally prosecuted for the destruction they have knowingly caused,” the aged fascist tweeted adding everyone’s favorite Communist hashtag, “#GreenNewDeal.”

Sanders’ tweet came on the same day that he released an economy-crushing $16 trillion plan to address the mythological “climate change” crisis. Sanders exclaimed that his personal version of the communistic “Green New Deal” as a way to “end the greed of the fossil fuel industry.”
… and replace it with the greed of the new green energy industry, obviously.
Sanders posted a second tweet attacking the idea of “clean coal.”
“There is no such thing as ‘clean coal.’ There is no such thing as ‘sustainably fracked” natural gas,'” the crackpot tweeted, adding, “We are going to end the greed of the fossil fuel industry and move to 100% renewable energy.”
On his website, Sanders goes off on fossil fuels.
“These executives have spent hundreds of millions of dollars protecting their profits at the expense of our future, and they will do whatever it takes to squeeze every last penny out of the Earth,” his about section reads.
“Bernie promises to go further than any other presidential candidate in history to end the fossil fuel industry’s greed, including by making the industry pay for its pollution and prosecuting it for the damage it has caused.”
This decrepit crackpot would tank the one industry most responsible for America’s high standard of living.
