Nina Turner Gives Rousing Sermon at MLK Jr. Monument

On a grey Saturday afternoon, former Bernie Sanders surrogate Nina Turner addressed an assembled crowd in front of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C., calling on them to act in the spirit of the civil rights leader and take inspiration from his struggle for the fight ahead.

Sounding an awful lot like a reverend herself, Turner inspired all who listened with encouragements about the future, spreading a message of unity. She called on progressives to come together, with one hand reaching forward to climb above the struggle, with the other hand reaching behind, to pull those still struggling further skyward.

To Turner, though we feel we are facing dark times ahead, it is just a reminder of where we have been.

“The mountain might be higher, but we’ve been here before. The valley may be lower, but we’ve been here before.”

2. I have a hard time respecting Nina Turner

I think she did great harm during the election. Not by her support of Bernie Sanders. By the vitriol she spewed at out Hillary. I always thought it was something personal and that she had a grudge against Hillary. I think Nina Turner kept a lot of votes away from Hillary and her last minute support was a dollar short and a day late.

3. Whatever supportive words she has to offer are several months too late.
