This Pride Month we say: LGBTQ+ rights are civil rights. There is no place in this country for discrimination, police brutality, or hatred towards LBGTQ+ Americans. We will never stop fighting for equality. ... See MoreSee Less
Members of the LGBTQ+ community are human beings just like everybody else. They deserve to be treated with dignity and respect like everybody else.
With Liberty, and Justice FOR ALL!
Not just equality, Bernie - JUSTICE!!! I wish I could vote for you so badly.
Bernie Sanders, is there any way at all you can reverse your back out and become a contender again? We need you now more than ever. What good is any of us voting when it has to go to either Trump or Biden. Both corrupt in their own ways. We NEED you. There is no hope without you. Please come back 😔
Sen Bernie Sanders sir me and your supporters love ❤️ you and need you!✊❤️ and me and your supporters are voting for you sen Bernie Sanders sir and not voting for Biden and trump and sen Bernie Sanders sir me and your supporters truly want to thank you for standing for lgbtq 🏳️🌈 people and their rights!✊❤️
Right on Target Mr. Sanders! Wish you were the one in the White House!
“In spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.” “We adopt the means of nonviolence because our end is a community at peace with itself. We will try to persuade with our words, but if our words fail, we will try to persuade with our acts.” MLK JR
This is awful. Peaceful protests In DC. Rubber bullets and tear gas. Is it possible DT said he would speak at 6:30 and then got the NG and mounted police to essentially attack peaceful protest? I think it is a tv stunt. Just a big ole MAGA rally. They were protesting peacefully. No AK 47’s as in other places that the president encouraged to fight for their 2nd amendment because they had to stay home for a little while due to COVID. This was staged. After this horrible act, please go full on Joe. Speak out and often. If it was you as a candidate I’d be sending this message to others. Americans need dems United!!
This Pride month, we all need to remember to support our POC brothers and sisters. Protest, sign petitions, donate where you can!! Stay safe, but speak up. It's what Marsha P. Johnson would have wanted.
Any LGBTQ+ person who knows any feeling of fear or oppression for being who you really are, this is your time to exercise empathy and recognize there are other people, LGBTQ+ and otherwise who are in dire need of our support right now. I beg that no one who feels a part of the community overlook what is happening to the Black Community during pride month. Celebrating who we are and how far we've come can wait, we've done it every year.
I echo others. We want YOU as our president. The past week has made clear who I’m voting against, but the world would be better with President Bernie Sanders.
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم إِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِنْ دُونِ النِّسَاءِ بَلْ أَنْتُمْ قَوْمٌ مُسْرِفُونَ وَمَا كَانَ جَوَابَ قَوْمِهِ إِلَّا أَنْ قَالُوا أَخْرِجُوهُمْ مِنْ قَرْيَتِكُمْ إِنَّهُمْ أُنَاسٌ يَتَطَهَّرُونَ ( فَأَنْجَيْنَاهُ وَأَهْلَهُ إِلَّا امْرَأَتَهُ كَانَتْ مِنَ الْغَابِرِينَ وَأَمْطَرْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ مَطَرًا فَانْظُرْ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَاقِبَةُ الْمُجْرِمِينَ صدق الله العظيم
Well, better start fighting harder, since Trump is blustering about sending the military against unarmed civilians now.
#BernieComeBack! Seriously, we are so tired. You put a little pep in our step! We love you, Bernie #StillSanders #RealityEndorsesBernie #PresidentSanders
Wherever you are tomorrow June 2nd rally to get out the vote! If you are in a primary state vote! Bernie 2020!
On Saturday night a black lives matter protester was shot and killed in Omaha. James Scurlock. The national news has not picked up the story, only the daily mail from the UK has reported on it. A bar owner Jake Gardner literally took his gun and walked out into the street, not on his property, started yelling the n word, antagonizing and inciting violence, then shot James Scurlock twice. Today it was announced that Jake Gardner, a known white racist, will not be charged with his killing. I think it's not getting reported on because it wasn't a police officer that shot him. But the protests are also about racism and justice for blacks. Please share and bring some attention to this horrific senseless killing. From what I'm aware he is the first protesters to be killed during these protests. m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10158511608538851&id=837383850
You've been campaigning for president for 8 years. You cannot let the Clinton/Biden/Obama establishment carry us down the same road.
Beside brown and black there are also yellow, justice for all! With liberty
This is like the last thing on anyone's mind right now. We see you got the DNC memo this morning. Good little comrade.
Thank you Bernie--we're lucky to have you fighting the good fight in the senate.
But you did stop fighting. You endorsed Biden. Get back in the race. Now is the time that you are needed.
Now a right to enlist in the u.s military go on profile can't deploy .get promoted first get out on full disability.
Bernie-Talks like a leader and tries to unite people Trump-Has a Twitter that looks like your crazy uncle got drunk and started posting whatever he thought
Unsuspend, stop endorsing Biden. We. Need. YOU!
Bernie 2020 PLEASE WE NEED YOU!!
Liar in Chief: According to a new report, Trump has made 19,127 false or misleading claims since taking office. A new poll finds only 35% of Americans believe he is honest. In a democracy we can have different views, but not a president who is a pathological liar. ... See MoreSee Less
What I want to know is, who’s the 35%?? Honesty, integrity, courage and compassion are not qualities Trump has, and now that he’s been president for three years, everyone should be able to see that.
Love you Bernie, but let’s have a count on Biden’s lies now. I’m pretty sure he was never a hard coal (anthracite) miner, civil rights marching genius at the top of his class.
Riots are taking care of what politicians failed to. Consequences of decades of inaction. Looking like 1960 around here doesn’t it. We regressed because we the people don’t control this country YOU politicians do.
There ought to be a law that prohibits a president to blatantly lie to the American people. On matters of national security there are exceptions, but to be so untruthful as #45 is it should be an immediate removable offense. This should never happen here again in this country. When he is ousted from office charges should be brought against him from every angle and he should be made an example of.
In a democracy we can have different views, not different facts. There is the truth and then there is delusion. Trump seems to operate out of delusion.
IF YOU HAD BEEN LAWFULLY ELECTED LIKE THE ACTUAL VOTES TALLIED, IMAGINE HOW NICE OUR COUNTRY WOULD BE RIGHT NOW. WE CANT BELIEVE YOU GAVE UP AGAIN, BERNIE. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS.
If you can do better Bernie, why don’t you run as an independent and see what happens? Your own party doesn’t want you as president elect for their party so what do you have to loose??
35%? I don't think that's right at all, not even close. It's likely a figure that's been tampered with. Probably closer to 15% or even lower makes more sense.
I have lost all respect for Bernie. He runs the ticket, pulls votes from the other candidates, and when they drop out...so does he, leaving us with little or no choice!! I am beginning to think he is a republican in disguise😢😢
“...thirty-five percent of Americans believe he is honest.” That itself makes me doubt America can survive. Must be the same people that think he respects women.
35% is a staggering number of blind people. Shocking what so many believe.
He has lied more than every president in American history combined. Let that sink in.
It is more than 35%. A lot of people who said that do not believe him are ashamed to have been duped, and try to look smarter. But they are going to vote for him again. In an analysis of the voting system it has been calculated that Biden could get 5 million votes more than Trump, but still lose the election, depending on the states in which he gets the votes. Get ready for FOUR MORE years of Trump. Shame on both parties!
It's nice that this miserable excuse for a Senator has enough spare time to post things like this. Too bad he's not doing the job that he's so wonderfully overpaid for.
But you don't have the courage of your convictions, you wimped out, not once, but twice
We need Bernie to write the Civil Rights and Police Reform Act of 2020.
How about you honestly run for an election instead of just gathering votes and bailing out! #Twice
But it doesn’t make them pull away from Trump - they were promised Roe v wade overturn if they stuck with him!
100 lies a week sounds about right. 1/3 of the people will believe anything you tell them so that sounds about right too. Yes, pathological liar is definitely not a good trait for a President of the United States.
100% of Bernie supporters believe in Socialism. So 35% seen like a pretty good number.
“We have to mobilize to raise awareness, and we have to organize and cast our ballots to make sure that we elect candidates who will act on reform.”
A time when we needed a president who understands the racism situation better than the others, who has always fought for black rights and marched with MLK. Sadly the dems won't let us have him 😢
Huge different in own views and out right lying...he has no views..no morals, no values, no decency, and no education. It’s one thing to have an opinion...but he only lies
What we can learn from the actions without consequences of 45 is to look at what new enforceable laws we may need to make to ensure no one can ever do the things he has done and wants to do to the vulnerable citizens of our country.
I would have changed it to read, "A new poll finds 35% of people still believe he is honest." Over 19,000 lies in 3.5 years?! How can anyone believe anything he says?! How can people stick their heads in the sand and allow themselves to continue to be hoodwinked?!
Mitch McConnell says we should end the $600 unemployment bonus because workers now earn more by not working. I've got a better approach. Let's end starvation wages in America and raise the minimum wage to a living wage. All workers are entitled to a decent standard of living. ... See MoreSee Less
I actually still make a few hundred less a week than I would be making if I was working, but at least I can still afford my rent and bills. So no, it shouldn’t be dropped. And minimum wage for those that are making more than they would be, should be higher, when works resumes. No one can build a life making less than $20 an hour in this economy.
What Mitch the turtle doesn’t know is that people in Michigan aren’t even getting their unemployment! Some people were scammers and infiltrated the system. Now the unemployment is backed up with trying to get everyone’s ID and Soc Sec #’s processed. This, on top of having g to worry about Covid-19 and whether or not we have jobs to go back to 😢
I agree we need a living wage, but unemployment should match 100%- not give 600 of additional income. I'm still working and not getting extra anything. I don't get how they thought this was a logical solution. This is just providing a false sense or comfort.
It's too bad we just have a few sporadic senators and congresspeople who will say stuff like this now. And that those people will ultimately vote for whatever Democratic leadership tells them to, and try to convince people they should vote for Democrats with no conditions whatsoever.
Why don’t you just match what people are making instead of giving people MORE than what they normally make? And stop giving people who are on SS and still getting their income a stimulus?? If you were laid off or lost your job, focus on them. I don’t get it.
Lower Mitch McConnels pay and benefits and donate to those out of work! If they were making a living wage unemployment would not pay more!!!!!’nmmm
Can someone tell me what the point of government is, if not to take care of its people?? I keep asking, no one seems to have an answer
The 600 dollars doesn’t cover my husband’s paycheck. He lost his job due to covid, but it has most definitely helped us out and he’s been applying to many jobs. Positions seems to be lowballing now because there’s so many unemployed. Jobs that were 60-70k are listed as 50k.
The republicans dont give a damn about the workin people. Yes, i do make more on unemployment, but not by much. But, if my place of work called me today to go back to work, i would go. I like bein productive.
Mitch McConnell should live on minimum wage. What if elected officials had to live on even just 5x minimum wage? I’m sick of people who don’t know what it is like being the designers of it.
raising minimum wage will get rid of jobs. its actually better to remove the minimum wage and instead supplement low wages with a basic minimum income.
this is funny coming from Bernie who put his people on part time so he didnt have to give them minimum wages..
So basically the person that made $80k a year when this started and has been able to stay afloat because of the extra $600 a week unemployment needs to lose their home because Mitch Mcconnell thinks everyone is an opportunist and lazy just like him 🤔
Agreed! Lead by Example! $15.00 per hour for all members of the Congress and Senate! And Only for Hours Actually Worked.
Mitch should try to pay for medication with no insurance. The only reason I could afford it? The extra money. It must be nice to live in such a bubble and have no idea what struggle really is.
$600/wk barely covers medical insurance for a family of four. If you’re lucky.
We won’t be able to survive without the extra $600/week. He thinks taking it away will encourage people to go back to work, but 40 million jobs disappeared and aren’t coming back overnight. Yes, I technically make more “per hour” on unemployment but due to paying for my health insurance, that I lost from my employer, I’ll be at a deficit.
I’ll be honest with ya Mitch- I was off work for 3 weeks. I loved being with my partner but I wanted to come back to work. I’ve got a masters degree and I worked hard to be able to do the job I do. I wanted to work. Many! People! Want! To! Work! But it is dangerous to right now.
Minimum wage is for minimum skills, it’s not meant for a living wage.
Mitch- How about end the bail out to your Rich corporations buddies . There’s people still this date on furlough, laid off. That Not their fault !. Those are on furlough are waiting for their employers to recall them all back ..
Funny. Ive been applying for jobs since mine ended mid April. All I got was a request for an interview for an unpaid internship. I have a mortgage and bills to pay. My neighbor is also laid off and he got told he was over qualified to work at Home Depot. I couldn't get my application looked at at Kroger and they were supposedly desperate. These places don't want workers with experience. They want people who will work for peanuts
Yeah I earn more on unemployment but I still cant pay my Bills and afford necessities, so if I work I'm screwed if i dont work in screwed. This system is broken, our government can afford to bail out big corporations but cant afford to help its taxpayers,we give them our money and the give it to a billion dollar corporation and tell us to bugger off. How is that justified?
I wonder what Kentuckians think about that, nothing for them. The state that receives the highest In aid being told you don't matter, I got mine piss on you but still vote for me. So very very sad.
How about putting Mitch on minimum wage with no health insurance!😠
Bernie, we need you back. Unsuspend. This is ridiculous. You know we're not voting for Biden, especially not after this.
We need real police department reform. Every police officer involved in a killing must be held accountable, and those found guilty must be punished with the full force of the law. Every killing of a person held in police custody must be investigated by the Department of Justice. ... See MoreSee Less
It was a brutal murder. All the police directly involved needs to be accountable for the murder case. But why people destroying cities ? That’s wrong.
The reform must go deeper- the prison industrial complex must be dismantled. Our economy must not benefit off of incarceration. We must abolish privatized prisons and instill true rehabilitation in these institutions with reasonable and fair sentencing. We must stop breaking families and communities apart. Bernie- we need you to turn this country around!!
Part of the problem is that police officers _aren't_ found guilty on the rare occasion they come to trial, because the prosecutors softball the trial for the defense because they are in bed with the police. Even though there is video proof in the Floyd case, I'll bet cold hard cash that Chauvin gets off and gets a job with another police department in short order.
Absolutely! Independent Party investigations for all murders at the hands of police! We also need to hold police officers financially accountable and take victim disbursements from their pension funds! I bet that would give them a softer touch IMMEDIATELY.
And redistribution of their funding. New training, and learning programs. Programs that acclimate officers with their community, to help continue to break down the social barrier. EXTENSIVE training on deescalation, and using NON lethal weapons as a last measure. Technology and reoccurring psychological evaluations, and bias testing to ensure we are hiring officers who want to be there for the right reasons.
If you want to be an officer of the law, you should have to attend at least 4 years of schooling. A well rounded, educated path to enforcing the law and protecting the people. Learn to be a public servant.
Lock up judges who incarcerate the innocent as well. They ruin entire families: they lose a source of income, bring them groceries in jail, when released have to take a day off work to go to probation and pay the state, kids are raised without fathers, sisters without brothers, rights are removed and it becomes harder for social, financial and educational mobility. They sink entire families just to wave the gavel like it's a toy.
Reform is not enough for an institution that’s existed, from the very start, to serve and protect racial capitalism. We can and should create the conditions that make police unnecessary, and we can and should abolish policing. The prison abolitionists’ strategy of moratorium, decarceration, and excarceration isn’t all that radical, and it would work with cops, too — bit.ly/3eCBY8S
We need you to get back into this presidential race... There is no hope for democracy or even Biden You are who a lot of us were counting on!
The Department of Justice we have now under Trump and William Barr is more akin to the Ministry of Truth in 1984. We will get no satisfaction there.
And the only way to do this is to have the right people representing us in local, state, and federal government. VOTE
We also need to remove the stigma of reporting unacceptable behavior. I understand the need to support fellow officers, but not when they go from protecting the public to assaulting them.
What about for every police officer-caused death, a citizens jury and a branch of the ACLU and FBI work with the city or state government for a hearing to fairly assess if policy is being followed and to publicly announce findings in televised and documented outreach? I’m also in favor of a way for guaranteed funding of every police dept to get body cams and immediate firing and jail time for falsely turning it off or attempting to destroy evidence.
What sort of reform are you asking for? Minneapolis seemed to have followed a protocol, and the person was arrested.. Don't you think painting all police officers as bad, corrupt, and racist, is as bad as the stereotype of all African-Americans as criminal?
If an officer can hit his wife.. The person supposedly the most important and valuable.. Then they shouldn't be on the force. We need to make it harder to be an officer, and we need to make it easier to fire them if they can't uphold the law either. Accountability. If they have a serious complaint.. One and done. You can't protect and serve if there isn't respect and love at the heart of it
I agree. I know really good state troopers and police officers personally. They take their jobs so seriously. They eat healthy, they eat balanced, they train hard, they go above and beyond and put their hearts in “to protect and serve”. It’s not right that bad HUMANS who happen to be, cops, could have, ruined the whole force’s reputation. Ridiculous!
While we’re at it- make it a requirement to further education and an internship to become an officer. It seems that the missing piece is openness and understanding of culture and human behaviors. How can you protect and serve the people if you have no people skills?
Every use of force should be investigated and prosecute all assaults too! Start on the lower level offenses to bring the offenders to justice before they kill someone. The George Floyd killer had MANY lower level offenses and other MURDERS. He should never have been allowed to be a policeman.
You should be President, sir. Please reconsider your decision to suspend your campaign. We need you so badly.
We need psychological evaluations on the regular, also as a prerequisite for the job in the first place, AND MANDATORY therapy for all in law enforcement!
"Reform" and "accountability" are abject failures and empty words at this point. Defund: take away their money, take away their weapons, take away their powers. Period. Send the billions of dollars of police funding to services that people actually need.
We need to protect police that speak out about the corruption in their ranks too. All too often the 'good' cops are either fired, or worse for speaking out.
There needs to be a far more stringent employment vetting process for law enforcement, long before it ever reaches the killing point.
I want a list of names and addresses of every cop who walked away from a lethal day towards POC. Then we nonviolently hang out at their home and workplace. We stop deliveries, we make every outing a public affair, refusing public transport, etc. until they turn themselves in and the cases are reopened for a proper investigation and justice is done.
Mandatory mental health evaluation bi annually, accountability among the officers no more keeping quiet amongst each other when others do wrong! There are laws for civilians about that in a lot of states they should be held to same standards if not Higher. The other officers need to be held accountable for their in-action.
When we talk about systemic racism, we’re not just talking about Black lives killed by police with no accountability. We’re not just talking about Black lives killed by COVID-19. We’re not just talking about a third of Black children in our country living in poverty, and millions of Black kids going to totally inadequate schools. We’re not just talking about Black women having a maternal death rate three times the rate of white women, and Black families owning 1/10th the wealth of white families. Instead, we are talking about a system of pervasive racism that impacts every aspect of our lives. This has got to end. We need equity for Black people, for Brown people, and for all who are marginalized and made disposable in a system and an economy that treats millions of people as unworthy of the basic decency of human respect. ...

Bernie, I have no words. I'm so exhausted by all this discourse. I just wish you were the one leading us through this crisis. You're the only one with the heart big enough for it.
Please Senator, so many of us love your country and the positive things it stands for... You and the young and the older and the old need to stand up and be counted, to finally right so many obscene wrongs. There is so much support from the people and the peoples to remove your, their and our corrupt administrations & establishments... We are ready! And I'm older than you, but I still believe!
I am depressed that Bernie is not the nominee. It becomes clearer every time he speaks that he should be.
You have been the only political candidate I have 100% agreed with and passionately fought to get elected. I love you. Thank you for being a leader your whole life. I wish it was you in November.
If you're campaign had actually been about black advocacy you'd be a front runner to being the president. We know its in your heart but you needed to project that MUCH harder
Hollow words if you endorse Biden. You had two opportunities to call out the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party, but you chose to tow the party line.
How is it people continue to vote against their best interests. Why are you not our candidate?
Bernie you always speak the truth. Which makes me think ... that’s why some people are afraid of you ... your honesty terrifies them. I, for one, am very grateful for your authenticity. Thank you.
I feel like we need a HUGE movement of people willing to just vote for Bernie as a write-in! So dangerous though, because we can’t allow another four years with Trump.
Thank you Bernie! Your voice is the first I’ve heard from this week that has a position of power in this government and understands the pervasiveness of this issue. Please fight for change in the halls of the senate. Don’t let this week of protest be forgotten on capital hill.
You should be President, sir. Please reconsider your decision to suspend your campaign. We need you so badly.
Coming from the man who was literally arrested at a civil rights protest. We need you Bernie. Biden needs to drop out 😥
I wish it was you to lead us. I voted for you in 2016 and 2020. Thank you for your continued leadership and heart.
Love u so much Bernie I will keep a humble heart like you through the grace of God however "high" I go in this world
We messed up four years ago... this could’ve all been better if this man was our prez!
Always important for people of status and great political power to speak out in a positive light against such behavior upheld by law enforcement. Thank you Senator Sanders!
We were with you to whatever end , and then you quit on us. Be quiet please.
Lots of rhetoric . What we need is term limits on Congresspeople, an end to corporate and special interest bank rolling of candidates and then good citizens will have a chance to run for office and make the change that our corrupt politicians won’t .
Yes! Thank you. For some reason systemic racism keeps getting left out of the frank political discussions. This needs to be ON THE AGENDA
Biden was an accomplice in building today's systemic racism. He's not going to dismantle it.
Bernie is right. There are underlying issues that stem many of the publicly known issues. Not enough time is spent on telling the story of how some folks in this country are systematically excluded from the American way of life. We should be focusing on those issues & the rest will take care of itself. People, in general, don't care about what happens to others when they have nothing to lose. We need to give them a decency of life so they give a damn.
And we need all the cops present charged, we need Chauvin charged with at least 2nd degree murder, and the police state needs to be dissolved.
The governor of Minnesota said that because the protests were still going on, even after the arrest of the murderer, that this was about more than justice for George Floyd. He was damn right. Everything you say, Bernie, is why the protestors haven’t let up.
100% right on. And yet the DNC rallied behind Joe Biden. Absolutely tone deaf, and not the voice or leadership that is needed in these times.
Bernie understands and should be president! The Dem caucus is going against the people.
George Floyd’s murder is not only an outrage. It is the latest manifestation of a system that callously devalues the lives of Black people. ... See MoreSee Less
"We will not forget that Liberty has here made her home; nor shall her chosen alter be neglected". Her beacon shined all the way to where I now live- in Norway. But it shines no more.
Thank you Bernie. I pray that the protests become peaceful and that we find justice. I do understand the frustration that many feel with this country, this government, and those who forgot that we’re all immigrants, humans and were all created equally!
I'm bawling right now b/c this is so true. Bernie, I wish you could have stayed with us and be our president. It's devastating that they did this to you again. You are the only one who speaks the truth and from the heart. With you, we could overcome anything.
This needs to stop one way or the other we need A REFORM A GOOD REFORM WHERE COPS ARE NOT ALOUD TO USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND FOUL LANGUAGE THERE'S A SAYING IF YOU ASK FOR RESPECT THEN RESPECT FIRST REFORM NOMOREPOLICEBRUTALITY
I think all this started to ask for justice for George Floyd dead, but now has become to left movement that wants to create caos!!!! This is not the way to get justice for Floyd 😏
We wish you hadn’t dropped from the Presidential race. You would have been our voice with both the Coronavirus and with George Floyd. You’ve been a fighter for equal and civil rights since before the youngest voters were even born. Thank you for continuing to use your voice and for wanting the best for our country. Just wish we had you in the White House.
The justice system has always been so lopsided that a man of color is judged before he acts. That's just incomprehensible and must change. We're in 2020, and thus we should live up to the human values of dignity and respect. Overhauling the judicial system can't wait further...
I wish you would encourage people to vote this Tuesday and let them know you’re still in this. With everything going on- it is irresponsible not to use your platform to encourage voting for change. Everything you have been pushing for has become more and more evident as a necessary measure- remind the people that these issues would all be addressed under your presidency.
Many of the people may not even be local residents. These are agitators that come in deliberately to incite this behavior. These agitators start the riots.
Oh Bernie a few months ago we were on our way to a brand new world With you leading the way. Then the people in power stole that super Tuesday from us and the virus sent us all home . And now… This
Please come back in the race Bernie. Be the voice for everyone. You care more than any other politician and you have the most trust.
This is too heartbreaking for some of us to watch. Just like Sandy Hook victims or pictures of the Holocaust. I hate it but I would be crying for days over it.
(About 50 seconds later in MLK video) "I would HOPE that we can avoid riots because riots are self-defeating and socially destructive" - MLK I understand why the riots are starting and escalating but I keep only seeing this small clip of MLK and I just hope you all know that he was explaining the WHY and NOT trying to actually support riots.
If everyone was listening, you know There would be a chance That we could save the show Who will be the last clown To bring the house down Oh no, please no, Don’t let the curtain fall
My children, 6 of them; they are African-American and Mexican-American. 4 hold masters degrees and 3 hold state licenses. One is running for council in a city of population of +200,000. One is finishing his first year at a state university. He is also in the U.S. Army. Their mothers always told them to never wear a hoodie. Something so small but their mothers knew that they would always be marked by the color of their skin and the texture of their hair. Just a sliver of what people of color have to deal with each day. 🙏🙏🙏
“tHeY nEeD tO pRoTeSt PeAcEfUlLy” - same people who tore kaepernick apart for years for taking a knee peacefully to protest this same violence and corruption 🥴
Right now is the perfect time to un- suspend your campaign! Come back Bernie!
Yes, Bernie; we have not improved in the 56 years and nine months since Martin Luther King said "We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality".
We must think about who hires these thugs. There has to be greater education to people in charge of hiring staff about discrimination and employers must stress that zero tolerance is expected toward any person no matter the color of their skin or u will be fired. Every person should be treated with respect.🎶🎶❤️🎶🎶.
People here in New Zealand are grieving the loss of George Floyd's life and demand justice and change toward a just and fair treatment of all peoples.
What happens when we protest in riots they get free reign to fire upon us. What happens when we protests with guidance and have a leader like Martin Luther King, Jr. They kill the leader in the streets in front of our faces. Why should we haphazardly sacrifice ourselves again. Einstein said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. If we just put in the effort every day to grow and get smarter as a people, (as one) we can actually accomplish something and not risk lives.
There needs to be mandatory screening for racism at all police departments during the hiring process. Too many police officers are racists. It is a problem!
Now is the time for justice! Now is the time for change! This year is the most consequential election of our lifetime. No more! No more! This stops right now! Every single human being with an ounce of humanity must stand up, rise up, and demand deep systemic change! #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForGeorge
Although intervening would be a very difficult decision to make; what makes it even sadder is that all of the people who were watching and pleading now have to live with that for the rest of their lives.
Bernie....you're on the right side of history. Keep leading...you're a beacon of hope in a corrupt system.
Corporate America's refusal to provide paid sick leave to workers is not only inhumane—it is deadly.
Congress must guarantee paid medical leave to every worker in America as a right. ... See MoreSee Less
You refused to call out your “good friends”, during your active campaign. It doesn’t seem like you’ve altered your plan in the senate. You told us that you were taking on corporations, the military industrial complex, the 1%, a dysfunctional criminal justice system, and push a green new deal. When exactly is that going to start?
Our communities are fighting for equality while big corporations rob everyone blind. Our nation is broken yall and we need to fix this shit in November! Vote, dont let all this be a waste!
You have been in the government how long? And you still have not provided results, except talk. How much Healthcare do you get Free, courtesy of the United States, for doing nothing?
If you're employer doesn't provide healthcare, find a new employer. That's how all this FREEDOM works. So many employers provide healthcare.
We should have tried to fight for this in the 1st stimulus when we had leverage.
Trump declaring a war on the American people w the military? I do not know which one of the choices is worse. I would think the threat to our democracy is at this moment. Trump just tear gassed young pacific protesters w the support of the military. Congress needs to do something about it. He is no worse than Saddam Hussein terrorizing his own citizens. Trump is a terrorist.
Kinda tone deaf to current circumstances and other things going on around the country. Wouldn’t you agree, Bernie?
Who runs this account? This was posted several minutes AFTER the president basically declared martial law. Maybe post about that?
It's iIronic that it's those on the political right who accuse their opponents of being elitist, when its corporate management that typically treats other human beings like they're a class beneath them.
Bernie, I love you, but I just wish you would learn when to pick what battles.
“Corporations won’t pay for leave... we must make the corporate slaves cough up the funds from their salaries”
Read the room, Bernie, America is on fire,. This isn't the moment for your healthcare message.
Before free trade workers had it better unions were strong but greed corruption never sleep corporations u know they own Congress said that free trade was good for America and people sohh stuped agree believe so Congress approve it aleluya profits tda sky is tda limit so big business close factory's ND when to China 3 dlrs a day India Kidd's as young as 8 yrs old work 12 hrs a day to get 2 dlrs from Nikes yes Nikes shoes heaven on earth for big donors now u know what whent wrong blame politicians u vote for Trump promese coal miners millions of jobs well so far only a pile of shiet for tda miners
You’ve got to call Pelosi Schumer Biden along with McConnell
Senator, you need to get McConnel off his rear and back to work for the American people, not just his rich friends.
I think there are other things happening today. Maybe you should respond to the issue of the day? Offer solace, support, empathy? As a real President would do?
You are sure good about telling others they have to provide this or that benefit to their employees and yet you have no experience in business yourself. You have been in politics for decades and have no idea how the real world works.
How are you helping protect us against the Fascist dictatorship that your inter-party squabbles allowed to be hoist against us?" At this point the finer points of single payer and green new deal seem a bit irrelevant!
We are the Democrats! Trump has crossed a line!
You drop out of the race to allow two oppressive candidates run against each other!! Why!? Biden says you need a military to take on the government! Trump is willing to use the military on US Citizens!
These prescheduled posts, are very deaf to current events
Can you please do something to save us from the man that just turned our military against it's citizens?
STOP TALKING AND DO SOMETHING BERNIE!!!
Nope. Work for your medical like we do.
'Congress must', 'Congress should', 'Congress needs to' ... Congress won't do shit until someone forces them to do it and since they belong to big business, they've got every reason to say 'no'.
$16,000,000,000,000. Sixteen trillion, with a "t."
That's the estimated long-term economic harm caused by this pandemic.
Senator Chuck Schumer and I have a simple question: Why the hell won't Senator McConnell act like this is a crisis and pass emergency relief NOW? ... See MoreSee Less
This is what happens when a government that is supposed to be serving the people serves themselves and the big corporations instead. They've used this pandemic as a means to boost the large corporations on the hands of the working man and the small businesses.
A Plea To Bernie: This is the best opportunity for a 3rd party bid. We’re behind you. We have your back. Go for it. Don’t be afraid. A vote for either of these candidates is supporting the status quo. Listen to Killer Mike People. Plot Plan #killyourmasters Vote Bernie 2020
I have come to the conclusion that these in charge are after a full blown DICTATORSHIP guided by the Oligarchs.. and McConnell is positioning himself and his buddies in that upper realm while the rest of us are turned into endendured serfs
I hope that whoever is paying McConnell to take down America is making it worth his while. I'd hate to think that the slime bucket is doing it just for the pleasure of seeing others suffer.
It’s simple. Both parties could give a crap about the working class. They’re just making sure their donors are takin care of.
It shows what a house of cards the US economy is. There's very little actual value to it; it just depends on a quick and constant circulation of money. When the music stops, for even a second, you can see how few chairs there really are.
If emergency relief is given, people won’t accept jobs with salaries half of what they used to be. Corporations have thought this through and instructed Trump, McConnell and every other PAID politician on what to do. Watch. It’s a set up much like their response to George Floyd. Flame the fire. Upset the people. Make them desperate. Send in the military and offer them peanuts for working 60 hours a week.
. Trump re-elected will get the voter rolls. WAKE UP Berniers WE will be targeted next and ALL hope for Progressive change could be lost forever. THE GOP IS MUCH TO TOO DANGEROUS NOW. If we defeat them in 2020 we can work with the Democrats towards Progressive change don’t split the vote. www.vox.com/2020/5/13/21257078/joe-biden-bernie-sanders-joint-unity-task-forces-democratic-policy
If only we have an organized pandemic response team....🙄 this is self created by poor leadership and intentional lack of preparedness. Non statistic based policy decisions. When you attempt to deceive it usually blows up in your face. This falls squarely on our defective leadership.
It wasn't caused by the pandemic it was caused by the over-reaction of the government.
Because he’s so much more wealthy, well-connected and powerful than ordinary Americans. He’s out for himself and could care less about the well-being of others, especially those on the other side of the political spectrum. He’s a selfish, tone-deaf and vile human being. VOTE HIM OUT
Shame on Kentucky Home to the poorest county in the country He s not worth their vote.
The fools who resist helping people in this time of crisis are playing with fire. They’ve taken a precarious moment in history and made it even more of a powder keg for civil unrest. What do people do when they run out of food, 40 million are unemployed, they have no healthcare, they can’t pay rent, and they have very little to lose? Protests, riots, looting. It was so obvious. The “let them eat cake” response from so many Republicans and moderate Democrats always seemed likely to lead to this moment. So many injustices. What are people supposed to do?!
Stop spending Bernie! You are spending without any benefit to the people. Healthcare , education, and housing get nothing while you keep bailing out rich small businesses and corporations.
The economy does not matter when the entire system was built om "Debt" The system was built to serve Corporations and to have fresh young blood to fill up the time wasting jobs. It was built to pay "Minimum Wages" and was built to break down young Americans in the Chase of American Dream.
He is playing politics. His business friends got 500 billion dollars now he is wanting to give corporations a pass on the possibly that employees having to return to work might sue them if they catch the coronavirus at work. If its safe to go back then why the hell would you have to offer corporations a get out jail card. Why , because it's not safe but billionaires and millionaires cant get money if we don't work.
I'll take a shot at this...... because the bill was crafted to benefit working people and not the corporate overlords in the WH and boardrooms of America. Can you believe the audacity of trying to pass a bill that doesn't give all the money away to the people that got the last bunch? McConnell and the WH couldn't hold their heads up.
Because he’s bought and owned by lobbyists and special interest groups. He’s also a racist and hates poor people.
Because HE isn't affected by it. He's already set for life. He simply doesn't care or like us. We're beneath him.
It’s the same response that happened way back when Bob Dole said our health care here was just great, the rich, the entitled they don’t care about us .
because he's not starving, his family isn't starving and not facing homelessness and needing his diabetic medications. he's all comfy and in a good place while the people of this country that voted for him are starving
Many places including my county are no longer offering free Coronavirus testing. If you are low income or uninsured you have no options. Our numbers are going up even without free testing so the reality is much worse.
Because they don't see the loss of average American lives as a crisis... at least not when they can't lay the blame on someone else and declare a profitable war. You can bet if it only infected and killed millionaires and above, they'd be trotting out relief funds in a hurry.
Not to worry. Everything will be fine. Der Trumpfer has seen to it that these economic reports will no longer be published. No news, no problem. Right? 🙄
How much would we have cut that number had we given out UBI instead of 500 Billion to companies to buy back stock? It would all be going back into the economy and the economy (the people really) would be doing okay, not great, but okay. #PeopleAreTheEconomy

Unsuspend your campaign, Bernie, the world needs you.
And evidently it's being televised.
The best President US never had....
So many here missing the point almost like they don’t care about anyone but themselves and especially no one of colour ...who have tried peaceful protest to no avail
We know you're tired Bernie, but the world sure could use you right now.
Bernie, your a multi-millionaire who owns 10 homes. Who are you pretending to be? Where are you right now is more to the point?
Too bad MOST of America is too chickshit to take back this country.
Change or Revolution. That is the Ultimatum we give this gonverment.
Revolution is change and change is uncomfortable
I think police should need to be licensed just like we are nurses. Public records, complaint everything can be searched and license to practice can be revoked. Otherwise, the lack of transparency will continue. The board of nursing is not there to protect nurses but rather the public as it should be for police; protection for the public.
A revolution could be all of us getting our behinds out to vote.
Power to the people! Stay strong, working class in the US! Greetings from Poland!
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, however, Revolution usually leads to suffering, death, and destruction. Whereas, “Evolution” is a lifelong process which a human transforms to hopefully enlighten to a better person from the inside outward, which it really much better, right...but what do I know💁🏻♀️ 🌎☮️🌍💟🌏
In 1980 I lived in Paris, which has a famous history of revolution. The streets were lined with banners reading, "La Révolution Continue!" In other words, the federal government (Mitterand) had tried to co-opt and perpetuate the 1968 street revolution, put it under harness, use it. 1) The revolution is always in the hands of the people; the government simply can't create and perpetuate a revolution. 2) We need a legacy and narrative of what revolution should be in the United States, something we can teach and hand down to our children.
What is funny, is all the liberals trying to blame the riots on "far right extremists" and then getting mad when Trump wants governors to crack down on them.
It's could be if the several genocides committed by communist were returned to the fullest once and for all.
When will we see you out there Bernie?
There are "way" too many angry people here on both sides of the fence. Let's stand back and analyze what we are about to say before we comment foolishly..
Bernie is calling for revolution... please do it first in Vermont,
What a brilliantly timed post, concerning what's going on right now. Way to stoke the flames, and throw some accelerant on the fire. But, none of this will touch you, will it? So I guess it's what the F as far as you're concerned.
Bernie, how will these protesters be protected now? What must they do to be safe? The country needs to hear a compassionate, intelligent, a just voice right now.
Campaign Zero has a lot of policy ideas that could make policing less lethal. Not all require $. Most require leadership, will, and a refusal to accept the status quo anymore. (I don't work for them, just impressed by them.) Check them out.
It is if you bow out and sheepdog those who support the revolution back to the establishment.....
I thought suffering, death and destruction open the door to revolution.
We could be in solidarity but y'all doing so much boot licking. Just a few weeks ago everyone was griping about how major corporations took bailout money they didn't need as small businesses sank. Do you want to do away with corrupt and crony capitalism or not? Make up your minds.

Sanders is a clear voice with wisdom and truth. I hope he keeps up his message because he is the major mouthpiece of the progressives.
Bernie can make banks &corporations &government UTILITIES of the people again by resurrecting EGALITARIAN COLLECTIVE DEMOCRACY for all RELATIONS and earth sustainability and innovation MANAGEMENT Bernie Sanders IS our PEACEFUL solutions to corporate war economics on resources and humanity
It is and has been the rich vs the poor with the rich creating as many distractions as possible to keep the poor from realizing they are fighting each other rather than the true villain.
Democracy? US? It has never been a democracy. It was a republic until it got bought. Now it's a nation where rich people do exactly what they want with no consequences
We need an economy that works for all of us and not just the wealthy.
It IS in the process of being revitalized ! What the result will be , either a revolution or progression is still to be determined ! Bernie Sanders will instill progress for all Americans !
Maybe your good buddies that fought harder against you and to maintain the status quo can help Bernie? Why don't you talk about them some more? Maybe you can allow mostly shitty bills through and talk about the 3% of the bill that isn't that shitty. Disappointment! Why don't you just retire already Bernie? I mean the Dems are so fucking great then you have truly done all you can and should just enjoy the rest of your life now.
Also, America is not free when Tom Perez, Barney Frank, and the DNC rig the Democratic primary against you.
Term limits on Senators and Representatives can greatly help with that.
As soon as you endorsed Biden, your statements of this nature have lost their legitimacy. Biden isn't challenging the establishment - he is the establishment.
The US and the rest of the world need to wake up. We are simply facing evil that needs to be stopped. This is no longer about the usuall left or right politics or Socialism vs capitalism as some politicians try to put it. It is simply about right and wrong; good vs evil. It is about people's rights, wellbeing and world poverty and greed where 80% of world wealth is swallowed by 5% rich. The world is changing and if we don't stand up to evil, we will face destruction at a very alarming scale.
Is this an attempt to call to action in anger and hatred? Let us act to preserve compassion and empathize with the oppressed let us act peacefully. Let’s not be motivated to loot. He sounds like liberal trump stirring the pot of division. This is not about money this is about death at the hands of police who are hired and trained to protect citizens even angry ones.
Bernie surprisingly silent 🤫 on police brutality. He is vindictive and bitter for SC loss.
Bernie speaks the truth!! Thats why they will never let him in!!!! The truth is so simple you won't allow yourselves to do something about it!! We have all been pre conditioned to think we don't deserve a better alternative! Education healthcare, fair wages and more affordable housing!! You all have paid for it!!!!
We need to think of our economy and money the way we think about water and rain. The laws of nature dictate that water is what gives life to all living things. Water circulates from the earth to the clouds so it can be returned to the earth in the form of rain to stimulate new growth. Our money must make a similar circular pattern for all of human life to survive. Therefore, even the wealthy need laws to guarantee that money is returned to the rest of the population in the form of wages and taxes to provide sustainable living conditions for our entire population.
Fighting against the establishment is not the same as winning the struggle. tRumpf and his crime syndicate have taken over the country, stacked the courts and allowed corporate thieves to buy Congress. They need to go so that people like Bernie can continue the fight.
Well, that's true. And this year alone, there have been two massive bailouts passed by congress for the wealthy.
Bernie Sanders is literally the ONLY worthwhile Presidential candidate in this election.
This is the man that the left should have run ,,, . Nothing fake about this man,,, you know where he stands firm on everything.
Bernie, you have had forty-nine years in public office to revitalize the democracy. Got any specifics or just throw in’ it out there?
-Capitalism is an unchecked socialist system. so·cial·ism- a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. cap·i·tal·ism- an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.
“Septic Democracy is what we have” - quote courtesy of Bishop William Barber II
Love you, Bernie. Please un-suspend. You have 40% of the delegates. We need you. Biden isn’t the solution to this systemic situation.
And THIS is why we have a CONGRESS... to REPRESENT us. But Congress just ‘tolerates’ us as they sell their souls for money and votes. CONGRESS raped our economy and gave it to the military industrial complex and giant corporations of all types. CONGRESS raped the economy Americans built with their labor.
As if there are no options, on the one hand, Goborrea with Biden and on the other hand, AIDS with Trump. What democracy are you talking about? If the alternatives are the same as always, they have been in power for years and there has not been a great difference, the only thing that has been seen is how the quality of citizens is in decline, more social disparity, fewer opportunities. And unfortunately You Bernie, you are no longer in the race, they managed to knock you down, and you were the only possible option for the United States to have a change.
The richest 400 Americans sit on $3 trillion—the size of the entire UK economy.

The policy that has led to such a situation is to be revamped.The political parties which seek their assistance are constrained to deal with them in a quid pro quo manner. They should be compelled to pay 3% of the profit for the projects like health care , food distribution etc to other people.
Our government just gave trillions to companies that have completely avoided paying taxes for decades. Knowingly. While still discussing weather our people need to continue starving or not. I'm still trying to process this.
Our economy is absolutely rigged and our political system is rotten to its core. The wealthy buy off our politicians and then lo and behold, those politicians continuously go and give huge tax breaks to the rich. Politicians represent the people who fund their campaigns. Politicians, like AOC, who fund their campaigns via the people represent the people. Politicians who fund their campaigns via the wealthy represent the wealthy. We need to get money out of politics.
Yes, the top 1 to 5 percent are and have been looting from mainly the working class every since Reagan reduced the Federal income tax rates from 79 to 40 percent and the brackets from 16 to 7! Reagan also worked with Grover Norquist on the PLEDGE TO NEVER RAISE TAXES! These two actions are caused the beginning of the INEQUALITY affecting mainly the working class! We desperately need progressive leadership and the return of an Federal Income Tax that is fair to all income levels!
Bernie, there is a leadership vacuum that only you can fill! Please unsuspend and step up to the podium. The world is waiting for your wisdom!
Ultra rich is as much a part of America as whisky, bourbon, or rye. The problem, like with everything else in this plane of existence is that systems are, and always will be, exploitable. There will always be people who find it exciting to leverage or abuse the rules to gain more buying power for themselves. The only true equalizer for us is the preservation of purchasing power and keeping wages pegged to inflation. If any of those two gears slip too far behind the other, America will slip into something unbecoming.
We need to eliminate the lid on Social Security tax. Make EVERY dollar subject to that 6.2%, not just the money up to $137,700.
Both sides of the political aisle have let the ultra wealthy rob the rest of us. Quietly passing law after law to take away our ability to legally fight for ourselves. Well, we are NOT “ Human Capital Stock.” And we WILL fight back. There are still things worth dying for. The suffering of the masses will not be met with peaceful protests anymore. It will be met with violent displays of collective anger, desperation, and retaliation. Clearly.
People say the system is bent, well it was always set up that way, so those in power get to give it to those who support them or their agenda, or seek their support. Largess flows to those who practice and receive Nepotism and Machiavellianism. Republicans and Trump are prime examples of it in action. The Tories in the UK and the so called "Liberal Party in Australia, (far from Liberal)...That is why they hate the word social, and fair, and good! That is why they incite, they seek division and perpetrate gerrymanders and pork barrel to their own, that is why they will lie, deceive and cheat to get what they see as their right!, they are not called right-wing for nothing! #newparadigmneeded
The GOP may have been the agents of this robbery but the Democrats were the bystanders who did nothing to help us. A pox on the house of both current major parties and those filling their pockets with gold!
And the middle class and the poor must unite to demand shelter food medicine and education for the public. Nobody should want for these things. We need to rejoin our allies to fight the pandemic and change the world distribution of resources to be better for all mankind. We have to work diligently to develop clean, renewable energy.
Yes, and President Sanders might have been in a position to do something about it. Instead we have Biden, who will do diddly-squat to change this. Thank you.
3 trillion would only pay for this country for one year. the answer is to keep the greedy corporations from charging crazy prices that no one can pay. regulate insurance companies and pharmacies. start there
How do we change this Bernie? The system is rigged😢
If we equally distribute the wealth to all American, 50 years later the situation will be same as today
And when people are poor theyre are more crimes of desperation.... petty crimes shouldnt result in death....while billionaires steal hundreds of millions and destroy villages or cities or rivers and they are never prosecuted
The REAL culprit is CONGRESS... because these wealthy people are following the LAWS that were ratified by the Congressmen... who sold their souls for money and votes.
I hate how you are not the president to this country. It really upsets me. I have the upmost respect for you Senator Sanders. Thank you for always trying to educate the public and for always standing for what is right. I pray for you everyday. Much love 🙏🏽💖✝️
Please give a speech outside the White House tomorrow. Talk about the concept of Class Struggle. This may be our best chance.
And those american billionaires/millionaires tax dodge in the UK too calculating taxing amazon or starbuck or apple with standard business tax would fund britains national health service for one year just from one company. The problem is t in america its world wide allowing tax free havens should be illegal
it's called wealth creation not looting, comrade.
No the culprits are the lawmakers who create the tax laws that allow the super rich and corporations to pay less than the average worker
None of them are going to do Anything they are All the Same.When are the American People going to realize it not about us All people are slaves to Washington they just get paid cheap and get use against each other while the big men and women in Washington get Richer can’t you all see that buy Now.You will when it’s to Late please wake up People
This has been a factor for decades. We need to fix the tax code and see some tax returns too. Since Ronald Reagan and 1979 tax changes have impoverished many Americans along with the change in healthcare in 1973 by Nixon.
So the American government pretend to value & support human rights around the world but they can't make it happen to inside the U.S.... What a Shame !!!.

Police attacking reporters and innocent civilians is a threat to both democracy and the right to protest.
The foundations of this were laid many years ago. Remember the military giving police departments heave armaments, even tanks? No? You must have been asleep!
The youth of the country are motivated for change and they need a leader like Bernie.
Every "good" cop needs to identify every bad cop right now. Every silent cop is complicit.
Seattle Police abandoned their squad cars with rifles in the middle of the protests. The weapons had to be secured by security for the news crews. In many places the police departments are actively instigating violence and property damage.
They are on the offense. This is going to get much worse because they are attacking journalists and pepper sprayed a congresswomen yesterday. They feel enabled by Trump, but they don’t work for Trump.
Definitely a step in the right direction. More stringent use of force regulations across the board would help, too.
As a young man (just out of HS) I was seriously considering being a PO. I was able to attend a state patrol law enforcement camp that summer and was amazed at how militaristic the process was. I knew then that I wasn’t interested. Even then (to us young people just exploring the possibility of becoming a PO) they talked to us about protecting each other first.
All police are trained to be bad , as we see it today. Tomorrow we will train the police to protect us from ourselves , lead us to the alternative . To not carry weapons , but words of encouragement. Ideally a force of citizens , rotating threw periods of commitment to serve their public . Mostly , something has to change , before it all goes away.
For the people and not corporations!! Not a single soul should die over property and possessions. The police work to protect property (which also means power because property is power in America). No more killings. Better training for police, no more thinking it’s cool to be abusive. No more violence.
Our police and our armies should be distinct from one another. The police should enforce the laws, not abuse their power and oppress people with overwhelming military-like force.
Where is the supposed peaceful rally?
Why don't you become Joe's VP? Then when he goes full alzheimer's. You can step in and save this country!
I called this 10 years ago. I said to all my friends that we'd see rioting in the streets and our own country go against us. It's happening. Things are falling apart out there. I feel it's only going to get worse.
I don’t think that’s necessarily the right position to take especially in today’s security environment. I do believe however that police departments do not have to treat each incident as requiring military weaponry and tactics. We’re civilian citizens for Christ sakes, not trained mercenaries. Stop killing people for non-violent offenses simply because you can. Get smart!
The police perform a different job than the military. However a lot of police are former military. That's probably not a good thing.
One of the biggest mistakes ever made was giving surplus military gear to police departments. They got these weapons of war and started using them on civilians because they can.
This is the moment when we need your leadership most, to unite on justice and regain peace. Please fight back with us and #UnsuspendBernie
Definitely! Are you working on a bill to work on this? This deserves action now by all levels of government
Too late for that... They are the "revolutionary guards" of the states and counties, but they're far less competent or "well intentioned" as they try to make out... Did I mention that they are incompetent? or just corrupt? and, well shitheel racists with miiitary hardware... That makes them deathsquads in the General Lee
That's a nice first step. Then we can end systemic racism so that our police departments not only do not "look like and act like oppressing armies, but they actually cease to be them in reality.
So what do you say to these folks that were filming the national guard and police from their own front porch when police fired on them? This is tyranny. Plain and simple www.rawstory.com/2020/05/light-em-up-police-open-fire-on-people-filming-them-from-their-front-porch/
Attacking journalists at every protest. At what point do we realize its not an accident?
I was watching the series Waco on Netflix . There's a part in the beginning when the chief hostage negotiator Becomes very concerned because the majority of the budget is being spent on response teams And basically gutting his funding.. He says something along the lines of "problem is you put these weapons in agent's hands and they're going to want to use them..." Point is we have militarized the police and many of them actually believe that civilians are the enemy....
He’s going to play it down and make excuses for the PD. This country is like a family ruled by abusive men and the media is the equivalent of battered women telling minority kids about how perfect and wonderful their father is.

For poverty alleviation and inequality, there needs revolutionary reforms in economic structure of the state.However, we can not expect such revolutionary steps from the sitting government in usa that it would to bring back the unprivileged class into the skillful labor class. the elite class wants to keep unprivileged as perpetual liability for the state.
and while you are just in a certain income bracket where you pay out the wazoo in taxes AND still owe a bunch. And the best insurance your company offers and STILL getting huge bills to pay.
He is mistaken. They do have it all, children and families are going hungry, jobs have been sent abroad for many years and year after year nothing changes. Repeatedly saying this message does not change anything. What is the concrete solution and when does it begin????
Time to get back to the tax rates of the Eisenhower era. There was plenty of money for infrastructure, education, veterans, environment and more.
It seems they can! Before when a business owner were reliant on people buying their products to make money (if every company pays their people well they can all buy products from each company and we all grow together). NOW... the wealthy are not reliant on such money passing thru their business but live off interest, hedge funds and arbitrary stock values! Us commoners working and starving have no effect on them what so ever!
It's amazing how many people defend billionaires. It's as if these people think one day they'll be rich too. Spoilers: you won't.
VOTE Is Don the Con, going for a coup? He owns the Supreme Court, two third of the federal judges and the Secretary of Justice... Alt Right Steve Bannon: create chaos, join all movements, stir the pot, and when everybody gets emotional you can manipulate, call for a führer, cease power. VOTE
We cant never be satisfied as long as the working and middle class people in this country who's tired of being a victim of discrimination, degradation, exploitation and hypocrisy by a government that supposedly practices democracy.
This man right here “GETS IT”. No other politician does, NOT EVEN joe biden - NO...he doesn’t! The People that know this will never vote for another “POLITICIAN” again. And NO, I don’t consider Sanders a politician, I consider him a SERVANT to his constituents; what every other elected official should be!
They can and they have. We are the 'human capital' also in war known as cannon fodder, in our current pandemic - disposable employee or wage slave. We have lost.
Why don't you just pick up a phone, give them a call and make a deal with them to help you build out complexes for homeless and help the poor directly. I'm sure if you just ask they will help.
I remember when he used to rail against millionaires, until he became one. Now millionaires are ok but billionaires are bad.
It appears you can get away with it, as congress voted, and the supreme court ruled, in ways that made all of that perfectly legal. Only a complete unseating of all republicans will begin true change.
Bernie lays out the facts but who has the incentive to make these major changes? I don't see tax breaks changing, somehow they are built into our damn system. Yes, bring jobs back to America where they once were and so our citizens can be sustainable. Our people are starving, dying of covid-19 and rotting in place alone with little hope.
You know Mr. Sanders i understand now why you side with people to bear arms..because yiu understood longtime that the police and army state could happen here. I live in upstate NY and feel not at ease living among so many xenophobes..and you cant have a small handgun to defend yourself against the racists
Simply ask the politician you are thinking of voting for, how many multinational companies does he/she lobby for, and how much are they paid for each. This is simply bribery wrapped up in false respectability.
Why don't you and your government buddies quit spending trillions of stolen dollars on the war machine before you criticize peaceful, private people
You must un suspend. If it means breaking a contract with a very corrupt DNC that viewed all of us as more an enemy than Trump then go Independent and DO IT. No one is going to be motivated to vote for another corrupt politician.
These are great speeches and words are cheap. Why did Sanders step down and endorse Biden and at the same time berate his supporters who failed to do so? We all know that Biden will promise anything to get elected and so does Sanders, so either he was afraid of the fight or he wasn’t serious. Prove me wrong by getting back in the race Sanders, your policies are needed now more than ever.
I've never understood how it is that governments and corporations are running the show but the poor always get the blame while the rich just keep getting more hand outs.
Do what you were born to do Bernie. Stand as an independent. You would carry the country. Have faith in humanity. This is your time to do what you have worked all your life to achieve. This is your time! Do it!!! For us all.
Our jobs are overseas because Billionaire CEO's did not want to deal with unions in this country. By sending jobs overseas, there is more profit for them
June 2nd has 500 delegates up for grabs. If you know anyone in PA, IN, NM, MT, MD, DE, RI, SD, DC, make sure they still vote Bernie. #SuperBernieTuesday
But Bernie greed is good and the American way. Those people at the bottom don't matter. Get them back to work, on the frontline because I need a new golden toilet.
We want Bernie! We want change! Enough is enough. Time for the ruling class to bow to the people's will.
Recap of yesterday's events:
Joe Biden went out to meet with and listen to protestors.
Bernie Sanders tweeted about billionaires,
Donald Trump hid in a bunker with the lights off.
This. Is. Why. We. Need. Bernie. Sanders. For. President. We have systemic problems that would be a challenge for Whomever the next POTUS is, challenges that #Biden and FatNixon will never be able to rise and meet. I support #KillerMike and #BernieSanders #GeorgeFloydWasMurdered
Wow... Rapper Killer Mike does not hold back.
i'm way past bernie sanders at this point. he's just not radical enough to meet the moment.
I had a fucking crazy dream that Bernie Sanders came to visit me at my house. That was wild.
I did get to meet his wife back in 2016, however. I've never actually met Bernie himself.
anyways, yeah my mans Bernie would never. Love you baby @BernieSanders
