Bernie Called Out After Vandals Strike Bloomberg Campaign Office

There is mounting pressure on Bernie Sanders over the violent tendencies of his avid followers after an office for the Bloomberg 2020 campaign was vandalized on Thursday.
The office which is located in Knoxville, Tennessee was defaced by vandals who painted “F*** Bloomberg” “authoritarian,” “classist” and “oligarch” on the doors in what has been a growing epidemic of political violence and destruction by far-left goons.
While local police have yet to identify any suspects, the Bloomberg campaign quickly reacted by calling for the leader of the revolutionary socialist movement that has raged through the Democratic party like a cancer.
In a statement, Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheeky pointed a finger at the Bernie Bros:
"This latest incident at our Knoxville campaign office is exactly what we've been warning about. We don't know who is responsible for this vandalism, but we do know it echoes language from the Sanders campaign and its supporters,"

The Knoxville office of 2020 democratic presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was vandalized overnight Thursday.
WVLT News Friday morning witnessed the front doors of the office painted with expletives and posters that featured the words "authoritarian," "classist" and "oligarch."
The posters featured what appeared to be snippets from news articles on Bloomberg in which he allegedly made derogatory statements about women and people of color in the past alongside words like "fascist," "sexist" and "racist."
Knoxville Police Department said they received a complaint saying the vandalism occurred at the Western Avenue office between 6 p.m. on Thursday and 7 a.m. Friday. There are no security cameras at the office and no witnesses have come forward.
KPD said they are investigating the incident. No suspects have been identified.
"The kind of divisive and hateful rhetoric and action we are seeing from Bernie Sanders' supporters has no place in our politics," said Holly McCall, Tennessee's campaign representative. "Over the past week, we've seen similar attacks against Mike Bloomberg 2020 offices in multiple states. Mike Bloomberg believes Democrats need to unite to defeat Donald Trump in November, and as president, he will bring our country together."
The campaign cited a quote from Bernie Sanders saying “We are a democracy, not an oligarchy. You’re not going to buy this election” at a rally on Monday as evidence along with several similar comments made by Sanders.
The vandalism took place the day after Bloomberg repeatedly tore into the 78-year-old socialist at the latest Democrat debate, at one point infuriating Sanders by calling him out for being a millionaire who owns three houses.
The attack on the Knoxville office is just the latest in a string of Bloomberg offices that have been similarly vandalized including in Flint, Michigan, Toledo and Youngstown, Ohio.
In related news, one of President Trump's campaign offices was also hit by vandals, very likely those who support Sanders.
The pattern of defacing and destroying anything that they don't agree with has sadly become too commonplace in America where first it was Confederate Civil War statues, then the Founding Fathers and most recently, Plymouth Rock.
The incendiary, anti-American rhetoric from Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and other leftists have contributed to a dangerous climate that will explode at this summer's Democrat convention if Bernie gets cheated again and could have have the country ablaze when Trump is reelected.
Take it from Bernie's own people:
Make no mistake, these are tactics that were notoriously utilized by Hitler's Brownshirts and Stalin's communist goons and they have no place in a free society.
Bernie needs to reign in his army of miscreants before someone gets killed.
