Without getting into it too much, many of you aren't getting it.... [View all]
Here at DU there is a new thing going on... Looks like this.
OP- Bernie Sanders.... anything... anything...
Snarky Commenter 1: Who?
Snarky Commenter 2: He won't get a speaking slot
Snarky Commenter 3: His ego is too huge at this point.
What is difficult to understand? He does not want your speaking slot. He does not care if you like him. He is NOT campaigning for President for Christ's sake.
What he is doing is fighting for the American people, whether you appreciate it or not.
Text yesterday from him: Help include an amendment to oppose the TPP
Today's text: Call your Senator and ask them to oppose the GMO labeling bill supported by Monsanto.
What an asshole, right? The nerve??
He is fighting for our values and our Party. This "Democrat" as some like to call him in quotes, is fighting his ass off so that the powers that be at the federal and state level are on notice that we are in fact paying attention now and you aren't going to screw us when it's convenient.
It's not his fight? Bullshit. It's a fight for all of us. And why would his endorsement matter at this point, especially to those of you who have marginalized him for not bowing out/down sooner? He's out there saying he will vote for Clinton. We will win with her in November and we will regain the Senate.
You think he is still running for President as a candidate and that's just not true in the literal sense. He's staying in to keep his voice out there for us, which he has been. And I hope it continues.
Note: I am not fighting the Primary, I am not calling out specific users. I am not bashing Democratic figures.
