View Full Version : Bernie Sanders campaign kicks homeless black men out in the cold

With temperatures in Birmingham expected to dropped to 20 overnight -- the lowest temperature thus far in 2016 -- the place where the city's homeless usually go to seek shelter from the cold is unavailable.

Boutwell Auditorium, typically used as a warming station in such situations, is not available tonight because presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders is speaking to a large audience. Factoring in wind chill, it might feel more like 15 degrees on the streets of Birmingham tonight.

"Unfortunately, no, we do not have an alternative location and were unable to have the warming station tonight," said Birmingham city spokeswoman April Odom.

They should have paid for a ticket. Things in life shouldnt be free.

Bernie is a staunch, staunch capitalist. 100% serious.

Bernie only shares other people's resources to help the poor except when he needs them.

Maybe they should try living in a city with homeless shelters and not some place where the mayor is actively trying to kill them.
