I stand with Dolores Huerta.

Huerta will not bow to bullying. Just as I stand with John Lewis and James Clyburn. All civil rights GIANTS.

Two of the people you just named lied very recently. That doesn't negate the good they've done, but its still the truth.

That's some real twisted logic you've got going there.

11. I stand with her achievements in labor rights and women's rights. I believe my ears

and I don't think she is telling the truth on this one. Sorry. The two are separate and shouldn't be linked as if one has anything to do with the other. Thank you for your consideration of this.

12. I Stand With Huerta Too

I stand with Huerta too for all of her fabulous activism but I didn't hear in that video what she said happened and I read where she said something different later. I think she should be given a chance to confront the people who disagree with what she said. That's the fair thing to do.

14. More of Clinton's MO. Get a respected activist to say something inflamatory about "Bernie Bros"...

...and then when that person is called on their BS accuse people of being bigots.

We can see right through this divisive shit the Clintons are selling.

17. She's changed her story.

http://www.snopes.com/sanders-english-only-huerta/

Her 'updated' story is at the bottom. Now she says people were saying 'no, no, no' and has dropped the 'chanting English only' lie.

Go figure.

18. Looks like the truth is more complicated than indignant outrage will allow.

https://www.rawstory.com/2016/02/civil-rights-activist-dolores-huerta-sanders-backers-shut-me-down-for-offering-spanish-translation/

“What happened is the person who was running the caucus said we need a translator and he said the first person that comes to the stage can be the translator,” she said. “So I walked up to the front and then some of the organizers, the Bernie organizers, decided to shout ‘no, no, no.’ Then a Bernie person stood up and said, I can also do translation. So then the person running the caucus said we won’t have a translator.”

snip

"A video posted online on Saturday purports to show Huerta being shouted down by Sanders supporters, but no “English-only” chants are distinguishable, although one person can be heard yelling, “Neutral.” Another person can be heard saying “Pero necesitamos Español” (“But we need Spanish”) from behind the camera, as well as, “It’s Dolores Huerta, my goodness.” The video can be seen below."

snip

"However, another attendee at the event has challenged Huerta’s statements. Erin Cruz told the fact-checking site Snopes that she was at the event along with members of a nurses’ union as well as actresses Gabby Hoffman and Susan Sarandon, and said that it was the moderator who asked for “English-only” during the event, and not any Sanders supporter. "

20. Who is bullying Huerta?

Proving she didn't hear what she claimed is on her.
The honorable thing to do when proven wrong is to admit it.

Kinda like what all the people 'standing' in this thread is NOT doing.

And GIANTS don't get a pass if they lie, misspeak, smear or distort!

Susan Sarandon ‏@SusanSarandon 1h1 hour ago
.@AmericaFerrera I was there. Nobody frm Bernie's side said English only. Moderator did when no neutral translator was found@DoloresHuerta


Perhaps if I give Huerta the benefit of the doubt - maybe with the noise and everything she misunderstood. No problem. But just say "sorry I was mistaken" and be done with it.

Is a racist and a civil rights fraud who secretly have hated PoC all his life?

Anyone doing the bully tactics here, are the Hillary gang playing Bernie activists and misdirecting Bernie voters...


When will your false accusations and smear campaigns stop? When will you start take issue with the misdeeds in your own campaign rather than throwing rocks in glass houses? When will you realize that you are all tools for the most disgusting Karl Rove tactics?
Do you people have no shame?

after Bernie began to go negative. That signaled the Hillary camp to go into "anything goes" mode.

And I sit in a country far away... Feeling I am more informed than the majority of the voters who goes to the polls and makes bad choices due to the bullshit oozing out of the orifices of the Hillary campaign.
The real value is to obsess about something that concerns us all, directly or indirectly sooner or later...

Cheers
