Bernie Sanders Hosts Anti-Capitalist Rally, Charges $100 for Seats

'Senator Bernie Sanders takes on the billionaire class... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is hosting an event to promote his new book and smear capitalism, which will cost $100 per seat for his supporters to attend.

According to Breitbart, tickets for the event, titled “It’s Okay to be Angry about Capitalism,” are being sold via the Ticketmaster platform—which is currently being investigated by the Department of Justice for alleged anti-trust violations.

Tickets range from $35-95, not including processing fees or taxes. Tickets worth $55 and more include a copy of Sanders’s book, also titled It’s Okay to be Angry about Capitalism.

Tickets will be available for purchase on Feb. 3. It is currently unknown whether Sanders has a say in ticket prices or the choice of Ticketmaster as the vendor.

The ticket aggregator, which is owned by Live Nation Entertainment, recently found itself in hot water after Taylor Swift fans came after them for price gouging after the release of her 2022 album, Eras.

The event is meant to stump for Sanders’s up and coming book, which will be released on Feb. 21.

“Senator Bernie Sanders takes on the billionaire class and speaks blunt truths about our country’s failure to address the destructive nature of a system that is fueled by uncontrolled greed and rigidly committed to prioritizing corporate profits over the needs of ordinary Americans,” according to Penguin Random House.

Contrary to the title of his book, Sanders is no stranger to capitalism and Big Tech monopolies. During his 2020 presidential campaign, he received hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations from Alphabet, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft.

Sanders is not the only presidential hopeful writing a book as a prelude to the 2024 race—Republicans Mike Pence, Nikki Haley and Mike Pompeo follow closely behind him with book releases of their own.

GOP Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s book is coming out just a week after Sanders’, on February 28.
