8. Sanders is definitely not an FDR by any stretch of the imagination - unless it was being somewhat

hostile to PoC - depending on what PoC at the time bothers them.

FDR = Japanese Internment Camps for Japanese-Americans.

Sanders = against comprehensive immigration reform and dumping nuclear waste into the backyards of impoverished Mexican-Americans.

But that's where the similarities pretty much stop between the two.

Also, the liberals of FDR's time hated him.

There was criticism of Roosevelt for being too close to Wall Street, criticism of the New Deal's pragmatism and non-ideological approach, criticism of the New Deal for not going nearly far enough, criticism of the New Deal and Roosevelt as preferring conservatism to liberalism, and so on.

Do these criticisms ring a bell? They come from the same quarters that have excoriated President Obama and what have lobbed the nastiest things about Hillary Clinton all throughout the Democratic Party primaries. Same movie, different actors.
