If you’d read the article I posted, you’d understand what I said. I said Sanders was repeating the pattern the KPD followed in the 30s:

“The Nazis had become the political center of power and trendsetter in politics. Even the communists, who had initially hoped to fight off the Nazis with fists, brass knuckles and revolvers (their motto was: “Beat the fascists wherever you encounter them!”), were now courting Hitler’s followers. In an appeal by the district office for Berlin-Brandenburg on Nov. 1, 1931, the KPD praised the “National Socialist workers” and “proletarian supporters of the Nazi Party,” calling them “honest fighters against the system of hunger.”
