New ridiculous smear against Bernie by AP. Here’s why it’s bull

Basically, they are calling Our Revolution, a grassroots-funded PAC for downballot progressives, "dark money" and a "super pac"

Now, it's AP, so they've got to have some good evidence before writing a piece, right?

Nope.

Their literal entire point is that because PACs don't have to disclose their donors, a billionaire could theoretically put a bunch of money into it and then they could put it into Bernie's campaign. And they say that any money Our Revolution raises is "dark money" because they don't have to disclose the donors. So literally the 99% small donors are dark money now, I guess.

Now I don't think any billionaires are putting any massive amounts of money into a group that works to elect progressives that want billionaires to not exist. How ridiculous of an assumption, AP.

This is the most botched, vague article I've ever come across from AP and is a blatant smear article. Beware.

To what extent were the 2016 primaries actually rigged against Sanders/ for Hillary?

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

This question was sparked by the fact that I've recently become aware of some outrage movements (some of which I have been a part of) that are actually based off false premises or ignore the details/nuance in the situations. Because of this I have become increasingly skeptical of any large claims that are easily stoked by anger, because I felt like I was cheated, tricked, and otherwise manipulated to feel a certain way about perceived slights.

Anyway, I had took it as a given from hearsay that the primaries were rigged against Bernie, but some googling gives me sources that say the primaries weren't rigged against him, and instead in some aspects actually favored him.

But then looking at a segment of a Michael Moore video, he says that Bernie had basically swept all the counties for a state, but Hillary somehow still got the votes for it, with similar situations happening across multiple states. The sources that say it wasn't rigged don't discuss this at all so I'm kind of confused.

I know that asking this in a Bernie subreddit will obviously give me biased info and probably a decent amount of low effort hive minded responses, but it's also the place I feel like I can get the most all round info without worrying about secret agendas and the like.

Thanks!

Need Assistance: Defending Bernie Against Family

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

So my Christmas was unpleasantly contentious this year. Mainly because I refuse to stay quiet about what a disaster Trump is. My parents are ultra conservative Christian Republicans…I know, an oxymoron. Anyway, their biggest argument against Bernie is that he is a “millionaire” with “3 houses”.

To me that is so absurd to suggest that simply because he has invested his money wisely, and purchased property through those investments (from his books, pension, etc.) that he is somehow unable to speak against the ultra wealthy and corruption.

So I did a google search about his money, and I was blown away at the insane attacks from every major news media outlet from the obvious Fox News, to the disappointing CNBC. Each one just going to town on him for having wisely invested his money.

So here’s what I’m asking for, is there responses to this? Has he addressed this at all? I feel like it’s a ridiculous argument but I also feel like there’s more to the story that I don’t know. Honestly I don’t think Bernie needs to defend himself at all. It’s not like he got this money from illegitimate means. But I’d like to be more informed and have a defense next time this comes up at the next family get together.

Any help is appreciated.

The UK media’s disinformation campaign against the Left – Lessons learnt, and a sign of things to come?

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

So I recently moved to the US (California!), having spent ~5 of the last 6 years in the UK. The UK recently had an election where the Tories — the main right-wing party — won a surpise landslide victory, despite strong grassroots support for the Labour party led by Jeremy Corbyn. In the run-up to the elections, I was genuinely optimistic that Labour would win, but theirs was a crushing defeat.

One of the main reasons Corbyn lost was a ruthless, systematic disinformation campaign against him on maintream media: a bogus years-long anti-semitism campaign, endless posts with false claims about the costs of Labour's proposed policies, and shameless & uncritical support of the Tories from even the BBC (the UK's national news channel).

The parallels between Corbyn and Sanders are pretty clear: both in favour for universal (and in Corbyn's case, free) healthcare, workers' rights, immediate climate action etc. I guess we're all aware that supporting Bernie is going to be an uphill battle, and that we'll come under increasingly ruthless scrutiny in the run up to the primaries, the DNC and the election.

So, I felt it made sense to share some articles on the dynamics of the UK MSM's systematic and system-wide smear campaign, and some thoughts on lessons learnt from Labour campaigners & democratic socialists:

  1. 'Organic but organised': How misinformation is spreading in the UK election campaign
  2. Investigation finds ‘88% of Tory ads misleading compared to 0% for Labour’
  3. Understanding our defeat (This is a very long piece: search for 'Air Supremacy' on the article, and read on from there for a pretty impressive analysis on why misiniformation works so well against truth)

I hope this helps, and would love to hear your thoughts. Althought I can't donate or vote, I'm trying to help our efforts through writing & research. So, if people would find it helpful to compare the UK elections and the run-up to the 2020 presidential race, I'm happy to invest some time to produce some regular, short but (hopefully) informative posts. Do let me know!

The Media is going to try to charge Bernie with Antisemitism after how well it work against Corbyn in the UK.

The best way to combat this online is simply shaming them for the audacity to say that Bernie is such after literally losing his family on his Father's side in the Holocaust.

Do not bother denying or letting them muddy the waters. Shame them and call them pathetic to their faces.

Noam Chomsky on Bernie Sanders’s Chances of Success – “The wealthy control legislation in America. The barriers against carrying out progressive legislation are quite high. It would require an enormous popular mobilization, the kind that took place in the 1930s that enabled the New Deal.”
