Bernie Sanders is, apparently, the embodiment of “white privilege” beacuse of his meme-able mittens according to a liberal San Francisco journalist and teacher
Not many would associate the 79-year-old senator with “white supremacy” but an op-ed by high shool teacher Ingrid Seyer-Ochi argues that Sanders “manifests privilege, white privilege, male privilege and class privilege.“

RT reports: By turning up to Joe Biden’s inauguration in a puffy jacket and mittens, her argument went, Sanders didn’t show the appropriate respect to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Why Biden – who has worked with segregationists in the Senate, voted for the Iraq war, and authored a draconian crime bill that incarcerated masses of African-Americans – was given a pass is of course left unsaid.

Seyer-Ochi was furious that the torrent of memes inspired by Sanders’ fusty dress sense distracted her students from the “meaning of the day,” from the women present at the inauguration, and from “the female warriors inspiring these women, the colors of their educational degrees and their monochromatic ensembles of pure power,” whatever that all means.
“What did I think my students should see?” she asked, “a wealthy, incredibly well-educated and -privileged white man, showing up for perhaps the most important ritual of the decade, in a puffy jacket and huge mittens.”
Seyer-Ochi’s article provoked outrage online. “What a stupid and appalling article: all based on how Bernie dressed,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted. “As stupid and gross as it is, it represents a large and growing sector of left-liberal thought.”
The article wasn’t the first time that the mainstream media associated Sanders, who had relatives murdered in the Holocaust, with the forces of racial bigotry. Last February, MSNBC host Chris Matthews compared the elderly socialist’s performance in the Nevada caucuses to Adolf Hitler’s World War II invasion of France, enraging his supporters. At the same time, they also found time to brand Sanders, who looked set to beat Joe Biden to the Democratic Party’s nomination, a “communist” and “Russian stooge.”
While Sanders’ inauguration appearance may have infuriated Seyer-Ochi, the Vermont senator managed to spin it into a positive for nearly everyone else. By selling sweatshirts with the image of a mittened and jacketed Sanders on them through his website, the progressive lawmaker managed to raise nearly $2 million for a range of Vermont charities, including Meals on Wheels.
Seyer-Ochi, meanwhile, earned more than $123,000 in 2017 to complain about Sanders’ privilege to children.
