"Sanders gets raucous, but mostly white welcome in South Carolina as he works for black support"

"Sanders and his aides acknowledge he must get more black support, in South Carolina and other states, to win the nomination contest against Hillary Rodham Clinton."

And, yet too many of his supporters treat African Americans like this..

“It this a legitimate group? Have their official media accounts said anything concerning this? Could be paid subversion,” wrote another.

The doxxing began.

“Apparently one of the women, Marissa Johnson, was a Sarah Palin supporter some time back. You can probably draw your own conclusions…” wrote one.


Yeah, that was BFD on du.

It’s not everyone. On Reddit, it’s easy to find hundreds of comments discussing how best to understand, respond to, or support the activists. And it’s hard to tell the allegiances of online conspiracy theorists — and impossible to underestimate the penchant for mischief online. But many of the comments were similar to those heard in person at Sanders events over the last month.

"The Sanders campaign did not respond to two requests for comment on supporters and the conspiracy issue"


So they are well aware of how some of these supporters are acting in his name.

Tio Oso..

“It’s very insulting and completely tone deaf and really indicative of the level of vitriol and derision that very specific Bernie Sanders supporters are exhibiting and began to exhibit right away — which is 100% racist, it’s discriminatory, it’s very anti-black,” she said.

Mahalo for the link, MADem

Tio Oso is right on target.. And, those saying it's "time to move on" and "this OP is trolling"..

are part of the problem.

#BlackLivesMatter will say when "it's time to move on".

"The Sanders campaign did not respond to two requests for comment on supporters and the conspiracy..

issue."

I put that snip in my post, too, Bains. They are well aware of it.. I wish he would shut that shite down, too

snips from your link, workingclass.. mahalo

Sorry, I don't think President Obama has made any such "deal". He wants the primaries to play out,

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama isn’t planning to endorse his former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for president any time soon.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest says the president is
staying out because other friends of his may also run.


Although Earnest didn’t mention any one by name, that could include Vice President Joe Biden, who is mulling whether to enter the race.

Obama told reporters over the weekend that Clinton is a friend who he thinks would be an excellent president.

Earnest says it’s up to Democratic voters to choose their presidential nominee. But he says the nominee can be confident they will have the president’s support.

President Obama has been brilliant at changing our Country since 2009 and Hillary will build on

his legacy. She has Congress People and Senators Endorsing her.

Thanks to all the people who have voted all their lives to help as much as possible with regulations for Global Climate Change and keep SCOTUS as Democratic as possible.

I don't listen to those who let others carry our Democracy for them.

President Obama and Hillary Clinton are the most admired Man and Woman in the World..

I'm not shocked that the US "media"/AKA/rw goPropaganda big lie machine has managed to bring down Hillary's "favorability" as the front runner. But, that will change.



Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton Extend Run as Most Admired

http://www.gallup.com/poll/180365/barack-obama-hillary-clinton-extend-run-admired.aspx

Oh, I've noticed and that's put them on the wrong side of history. And, that's where they'll

continue to be.. dissing our popular, accomplished President Obama.

The country isn't DU, thank Goodness.. the country appreciates him. Half of it anyway.. the other half is brainwashed by rwinger propaganda.

".. but given her history, and the fact that she's still standing after decades of battling the

forces aligned against her, it is rather ludicrous to even suggest that she requires any protection from anyone."

Indeed.

And, look who wrote the article.. Kristin Powers.. who's written "The Silencing"..

"Lifelong liberal Kirsten Powers blasts the Left's forced march towards conformity in an exposé of the illiberal war on free speech. No longer champions of tolerance and free speech, the "illiberal Left" now viciously attacks and silences anyone with alternative points of view. Powers asks, "What ever happened to free speech in America?"

http://www.amazon.com/The-Silencing-Left-Killing-Speech/dp/1621573702

Sound at all familiar?

LOL.. she's got all the bona fide rwingers giving her wave reviews..

But, one of her points is a little questionable .. I say it's calling out faux "news" for being fooking liars.. I doubt if that's just me.

"•How the illiberal left is obsessed with delegitimizing Fox News"

"Cornel West v. Barack Obama" by Melissa Harris Perry

"Professor West says that Obama has “a certain fear of free black men.” But this is a pissing match—not prophetic witness."

snip//

West begins with a bit of historical revision. West suggests that the president discarded him without provocation after he offered the Obama for America campaign his loyal service and prayers. But anyone with a casual knowledge of this rift knows it began during the Democratic primary, not after the election. It began, not with a puffed-up president but when Cornel West’s “dear brother” Tavis Smiley threw a public tantrum because Senator Obama refused to attend Smiley’s annual State of Black America. Smiley repeatedly suggested that his forum was the necessary black vetting space for the Democratic nominees. He needed to ask Obama and Clinton tough questions so that black America could get the answers it needed. But black America was doing a fine job making up its own mind in the primaries and didn’t need Smiley’s blessing to determine their own electoral preferences. Indeed, when Smiley got a chance to hold candidate Clinton “accountable” he spent more time fawning over her than probing about her symbolic or substantive policy stances that impacted black communities. Fiercely loyal to his friend, Professor West chose sides and began to undermine candidate Obama is small and large ways. Candidate Obama ceased calling West back because he was in the middle of a fierce campaign and West’s loyalties were, at best, divided. I suspect candidate Obama did not trust his “dear brother” to keep the campaign secrets and strategies. I also suspect he was not inaccurate in his hesitancy.

West may have had principled, even prophetic reasons, for choosing this outsider position relative to Obama, but it is dishonest to later frame that choice as a betrayal on the part of the president. After what I had written about Senator Clinton during the campaign I wasn’t expecting an offer from the State Department.

Much more..

Yeah, we'll see if BS is as enthused about Cornel as some of his supporters.

I'd love to see that.. BS & Cornel VS President Obama. I'm thinking the candidate who wins the Dem Nom will want to have the Obama Coalition to help them win the Presidency.. not someone who's been pissing on him for years even before the Inauguration.. like Cornel.
