This Is Exemplary Activism

Bernie Sanders standing up  for civil rights

Bernie Sanders standing up for civil rights in the sixties

I like this guy named “Killer Mike”.

This man speaks for me, and I’m a fairly privileged old white guy. He really knows his stuff, despite the silly name.

Here’s an interesting article from Daily KOS about Mike. Seems as though John Lewis lost his passion for change, but Bernie Sanders didn’t.

Damned corporate media hates my candidate, and I’m tired of them ruining our elections!

Bernie Sanders hasn’t made a dime, standing up for what’s right all his life. His net worth is that of a regular guy today, even though he’s been in the congress for all these years. I hope people wake up and realize that money is not the measure of a man.

    Watch and learn from Sanders:

    Not from George Walker Herbert Bush.

      Wait, no, this can’t be right. Bernie is a “single issue candidate.” 😉

        I guess you could call leadership “one issue”.

        I’m for it!

    HEY! Jesse Ventura and Henry Rollins are for Bernie too. I’ve always liked these guys, and Ventura probably could have given Sanders a run for his money, but didn’t.

    Tell me where they’re wrong.

      Ventura used to have a conspiracy-theory TV show where he was wrong in every episode. But I don’t hate the guy.

        It must have been a tall order to come up with something every week, but he was right about 911.

        OK, I’ll leave it there!

    Here’s an expansion on what happened in my first link on the post.

    That black girl had to pay $500 to get in to Hillary’s meeting, and I think I can add something to the following video from Cenk. Hillary blurts out that she already brought the issue up in her first speech of the campaign, trying to answer the girl.

    I remember it, and she’s right. I think she even apologized for the prison system she and her husband created, but it seems to me that she was just trying to get out in front of the story back in April, and sure as hell didn’t want the issue to come up right before “Super Tuesday”.

    It would have looked better if she had apologized again, rather then brushing the issue off, and saying that nobody asked her about this before. I guess all the damage they did is a bit hard to reconcile, other then a quick comment in a speech.

    Chuck Todd just signed off on NBC’s election night coverage saying that they’ll probably be calling Hillary the presumptive nominee tomorrow, but now that the stupid states have voted, how can we know that?

    Besides, if the Super-Duper Delegates can ignore the votes of the people, why can’t they ignore the votes of the people if Hillary gets more votes. Especially if it looks like Hill can’t win Trump.

    Poor Koch Brothers. Rubio hasn’t won a darn thing yet. Mike Leavitt must be sad too. I heard him talking up Marco this morning. Who’s going to take orders now?

      Cenk Uygur thinks Bernie can do better in Michigan and the states after that. 35 states still haven’t voted. Hillary already seems to be over her brief “progressive” phase, I suppose the donors have her on a short leash.

        Well that was a hopeful article from Cenk. I like that one!

        NPR hasn’t been giving me any joy. It’s strange, because Diane Rehm has been off for about a month now. Maybe now that Super Tuesday is over she can come back.

      • #17 by Larry Bergan on March 8, 2016 - 3:37 am

        Rehm still isn’t back. I guess that throat of hers took over her body. First it was voice treatments and then tours and influenza or something, so we’re left with Susan Page and her slightly betters.

        If you gave Diane Rehm her own show and reasonable guests, it would change the world for the better, but that world isn’t this one.

    I can’t be sure if this song is about the “freedom riders” that came from all over the nation, (including Utah), to help out with the civil rights movement in the south, but it sure is a great song.

    Hillary was campaigning for pro-segregationist Barry Goldwater when Sanders was getting arrested for the opposite. (see above).

    Support public television and Big Bird! Forget Newt Gingrich.

    I’m on a hippie rant. So kill me!
