The communist party bosses were famous for thinking themselves more equal than others. Bernie Sanders is living up to that reputation. On the coldest night of 2016 so far, Bernie Sanders decided to hold a political rally in a homeless shelter and all the homeless people were put out on the street to freeze.
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.
Last week, the auditorium housed about 300 people a night when it served as a warming station for three nights.
