Words from the Native man on stage at Westlake protecting BLM





"Although light years ahead of his Democratic counterparts, Bernie Sanders will ultimately become a better candidate because of the Black Lives Matter takeover of the microphone and stage in Seattle." —Gyasi Ross, Blackfeet Nation/Suquamish Nation Territories





Talking about genocide is uncomfortable. Talking about slavery is uncomfortable. Talking about why three out of five Native women are the victims of sexual assault, largely by non-Native males, is uncomfortable. Talking about Jim Crow laws is uncomfortable. Talking about why Native and Black people end up dead at the end of police gun more often than any other ethnicities is uncomfortable.

But it has to be talked about. We have to talk about it.

Yes, even Bernie has to talk about it.

The question of groups

I was reading in a group , let say the Pineapple group,that I don't belong to as I am not a Pineapple and there was a post about the member posting in this group that was supportive of the group. Well, someone who didn't belong to the group, alerted the post and got a jury to hide it.

I believe if you are in a group that is for pineapples and someone who doesn't like pineapples reads your pro pineapple post, they shouldn't be allowed to alert.

How can we change this?

I believe in the sanctity of the group. If I like pineapples, I should be able to wax on about them being the best fruit and not have to worry about the Peaches coming in and shutting it down.

The initial group I read in was not a candidate group, but I don't belong to that group. I do see that the member should not have been alerted upon and then hidden for being in the group, posting pro group things.


I hope I am clear.

Aug 10, 2015 (LOS ANGELES, CA) The Bernie Sanders campaign came to the LA Memorial Sports arena. This was filled to capacity at 19 thousand people, with an overflow crowd of 10 thousand. If we include the stream we found, that would be an extra 3,237 people who watched from all over the country.

Remember that Bernie had a fund raiser in Seattle

Yeah, right after Westlake.

Here it is!



At the Comet and it was $200 to have a microbrew with him!

One perspective on BLM

This video is from a Seatlle activist and his views of Westlake yesterday. He has been with many protests including Act Up which was all about agitation. Please watch.

He talks about using agitation and how it works. He also talks about how the Westlake event could have furthered their cause with an ask. This video is kind of rambly, but I liked it. He asks the person who is looking at a shut down to wonder why. In Seattle, shut downs usually mean another hour to an overly long commute so to not be annoyed with sitting in your car because of something...to ask yourself what the rage is about.

He aligns with my thoughts, which are that I have to take me, Artislife, out of being the one who is afflicted by this annoyance.


One thing I must add about this site in particular. I see many posters eager, yes, eager to jump all over posts that supports the conspiracy of a Rovian tactic being used and how Hillary is behind it and the jumpers are eager to point out how tinfoil hats Bernie supporters appear. But personally, I have posted many many times in favor of BLM and those who are not Bernie supporters are very quiet. Invisible. I see it with other posters like myself and it just adds to the illusion that agitation on this site is also very preferable.

Hey guys...maybe we can join forces?

From Bernie

We Need More Democratic Debates
I know, and you know, that the best chance for this country is discussing the issues that matter. Republicans aren’t going to do it, so we need more Democratic debates — more than the 4 scheduled by the DNC before the Iowa Caucuses.

And I know that if Secretary Clinton wants more debates, we’ll get them.

Sign my petition and tell Secretary Clinton to encourage the Democratic National Committee to schedule more debates before the Iowa Caucuses and New Hampshire primary in February and to allow important constituencies within the Democratic Party to host their own debates.


I know you all want them, too. If we join together and petition her, we might effect change. If you have a similar petition, I invite you to post in our group and we will do the same.

I am going to post in the O'Malley group too.

Pre Seattle event with Bernie on Aug. 8th

He's raising money.

In a bar!

http://blog.seattlepi.com/seattlepolitics/2015/08/04/bernie-sanders-is-raising-money-at-the-comet-tavern-on-saturday-no-medina-mansion-for-him/

The Comet Tavern has been refurbished under new owner David Meinert. In times past, Bernie Sanders would have had an unforgettable, stomach-turning bathroom experience.

Sanders is speaking at an early afternoon Social Security rally in Westlake Park, sharing the stage with leather-lunged voices of the Seattle left (and folk singer Jim Page). He has an early evening rally at Hec Ed Pavilion at the University of Washington.
