Yesterday, Infowars correspondent Kaitlin Bennett was kicked out of a Bernie Sanders rally by his campaign for no reason. She repeatedly asked the campaign staffer and security guards why she was being removed, and nobody could provide an answer.
The closest thing to an answer she could get was from an officer who apologized to Bennett for removing her, stating he was only removing her because Bernie’s campaign did not want her inside.
The video went viral on Twitter, and currently has more than 6 million views. Bennett is still seeking an answer as to why she was removed from the event, as is local media in the Lordstown, Ohio area.
WFMJ, an NBC affiliate in Youngstown, Ohio, reached out to the Sanders campaign to ask why they ejected Bennett, but could not get an answer. According to WFMJ, “We called the Sanders campaign to ask specifically why they had her removed and they wouldn’t answer the question directly.”
Instead, the Sanders campaign provided WFMJ with the following statement in all caps:
“WE ARE DISAPPOINTED THE PEOPLE OF THE YOUNGSTOWN COMMUNITY ARE BEING SHOWN ON THE LOCAL BROADCAST NEWS CONTENT FROM INFOWARS, A WHITE SUPREMACIST PLATFORM THAT HAS BEEN BANNED FROM YOUTUBE, APPLE AND FACEBOOK FOR HATE SPEECH AND TARGETING THE PARENTS OF CHILDREN WHO DIED IN SANDY HOOK.”
Yesterday I was kicked out of a @BernieSanders rally for no reason, and today his campaign is calling me a white supremacist, a label they KNOW incites violence. This man CANNOT become President. He hates the free press and will defame conservatives who disagree with his ideas. pic.twitter.com/R5uL8OnTvU— Kaitlin Bennett (@KaitMarieox) April 15, 2019
Bennett responded to the accusations from Sanders, calling it disgusting. She said that Sanders’ lies incite violence.
It was a Bernie supporter that tried to kill @SteveScalise. It was a Bernie supporter that attacked @RandPaul. Bernie supporters burned down Berkeley when Milo came to speak. @BernieSanders has violent supporters, and by calling me a white supremacist is threatening my life.— Kaitlin Bennett (@KaitMarieox) April 15, 2019
