Recent Bernie email about Verizon's attack and FDR.

Yesterday the CEO of Verizon said that I was "contemptible." He doesn't like that yesterday I walked the picket line with striking Verizon workers, or that I think Verizon needs to pay its fair share in taxes.

Verizon's attack reminded me of what President Franklin Delano Roosevelt said in New York City in 1936:

"We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering.

"They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.

"Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred."

Like FDR, I welcome the contempt of Verizon's CEO. I welcome the hatred and contempt of every Wall Street banker, hedge fund manager, pharmaceutical lobbyist and fracking executive trying to stop our campaign.

In solidarity,
Bernie Sanders

1. Bernie is our generation's FDR

 

IMO we'd be very stupid to pass up the opportunity to have another President like that.
