Bernie Sanders - FeelTheBern5 (For those of us who like this series of videos)

-snip-
Published on Oct 5, 2015

Number five, alive!

From "Long shot" to "He may have a shot", Bernie Sanders has taken the United States by storm. Some call it the "Sandstorm". Many others use term "Feel The Bern". However you phrase it - Bernie has been rising in popularity and in the polls.

Three weeks have passed since my previous #FeelTheBern video and more great things have happened for Bernie Sanders in that time, and while it was more difficult than ever before to find clips, those events are now included in this video.

But do not let the gathered clips in this video fool you - the media has not been giving Bernie the attention he deserves. It has taken a lot of work to find these snippets of news shows talking about Bernie. As popular as he has become it should be easier to find clips of the media discussing Bernie. But sadly, for the media, this has mainly been the summer of Trump and Hillary's emails. All while Bernie has talked about the real issues again and again and again.

Jim Hightower: "Bernie Is Giving Us All an Opportunity to Win"

-snip-
While Bernie Sanders was drawing huge crowds in Massachusetts, a Super Tuesday state, supporters from surrounding states, including Jim Hightower, were canvasing in Iowa in what was billed as a weekend of action. While they were knocking on doors and making phone calls to supporters in Iowa, Bernie was speaking to over 30,000 supporters in Springfield and Boston, Massachusetts.

Des Moines
Back in Iowa Jim Hightower, one of the country’s leading populists, was firing up the troops before they pounded the pavement for Bernie. Hightower told supporters that Bernie was “giving us all an opportunity to win.” Hightower, who campaigned for Sanders in Vermont when he first ran for Congress, told supporters that they were the key to victory.

Hightower said he wasn’t surprised that the country was ready for a campaign like Bernie’s, but was surprised by the fundraising, calling it astonishing. He said Bernie was already winning, citing the large crowds that indicate a growing movement.

In the Des Moines offices there was a mix of local volunteers and supporters who came in from Kansas City to spend the weekend knocking on doors. Throughout the state at all 15 offices the weekend’s outreach efforts were enhanced by volunteers from neighboring states.

For those of you who speak Swedish.

https://www.facebook.com/sweden.for.bernie.sanders/posts/404643126401442

-snip-
For you all you non-Swedish speakers here: The segment is VERY positive and is done with a narrative that makes it sound like Bernie is leading the entire race. The presenter mainly talks about Bernie's success Iowa and New Hampshire. Another thing to note about Sweden is that people mainly lack the bad associations with "socialism", so describing him as a socialist doesn't put him in a bad light. Also, the shown logotype to the right is from the social democratic labour party.

We need to remember small places like Puerto Rico and Guam as well as other territories.

They may be a small amount of delegates but they are important.

Interesting discussion on Reddit
