Bernie Blackout Examples: Video?

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

Hey, I'm looking for a short (60 seconds or less) video that clearly shows the Bernie Blackout in examples.

60 seconds (or less) is an ideal length & could be shared to social media and fit people's attention spans.

Does anyone know of any? I'm aware of that one that went viral a couple months ago, but are there any others with more examples? Including screen grabs from polls where Bernie is deliberately excluded?

Thank you!

Let’s get something straight: Vision and Pragmatism are not mutually exclusive. Bernie exemplifies both.

Hello, /r/SandersForPresident brothers and sisters!

My most upvoted post remains a screed I wrote in this very subreddit back in 2016, when Hillary Clinton's camp was hammering Bernie for dreaming too big and having impractical goals. Given the NYT endorsement sounding an eerily similar critique, I thought it was time to revisit and update the same message, so here we go:

Once again we're hearing corporate centrists like the NYT editorial board claim that Bernie Sanders is making lofty promises he can't possibly fulfill. The Times claims that "He boasts that compromise is anathema to him [note that the word compromise doesn't actually appear in their linked interview]. Only his prescriptions can be the right ones, even though most are overly rigid, untested and divisive [sic]. He promises that once in office, a groundswell of support will emerge to push through his agenda. Three years into the Trump administration, we see little advantage to exchanging one over-promising, divisive figure in Washington for another."

As I noted in 2016, the real danger here is the trap created by this argument: the premise that what he's doing is making promises. He's not making promises. He's stating goals. He's outlining his vision. He's articulating his platform.

The trap for us is accepting these critics' framing and responding on its terms. "Well, maybe it could happen if we get Democratic majorities…" or even Bernie's stated tactic of "well, he'll organize around the popularity of his agenda and use the bully pulpit of the presidency to pressure lawmakers." Yes, that's the plan for getting things done, but that argument concedes incorrectly (IMHO) that promises have been made, and that they may or may not be fulfilled.

This makes Bernie a potential maker of false promises. He's not. This is his vision: Medicare for all, tuition-free public universities, anti-imperialist foreign policy, Wall Street and the wealthy paying their fair share of taxes. He's not saying it will all be accomplished, and certainly not just because he's elected: he's saying it should be accomplished, and a vote for him is a vote for those goals.

He's a presidential candidate with a platform, and instead of looking at the current state of affairs and saying "we can make this a little better" he starts out by imagining what things should look like, and says "let's get there." That's why he's a visionary leader and a once-in-a-lifetime candidate.

Corporate media outlets and candidates are trying hard to create a false dichotomy between themselves and Bernie, which is that voters must choose between pragmatic compromise and pie-in-the-sky promises. The reality is that Bernie is more than capable of working with Republicans and corporate Democrats to advance his progressive goals incrementally, as evidenced by his entire career, but especially his time in both houses of Congress. This is not an "all or nothing" agenda, as the NYT has disingenuously characterized it: Sanders is as pragmatic as anyone in DC. The difference is that he also has a vision for what American should be, instead of leading with mealy-mouthed compromise.

So please, when you're confronted by the 'rainbows and unicorns' argument, remember first and foremost its false premise: Bernie is not making promises, he's laying out his vision, which is what a presidential candidate should be doing. There is no dichotomy between pragmatism and vision: we have both.

Why aren’t I seeing more Bernie advertisements on TV and Facebook?

I'm not exactly someone familiar with campaigns and their strategies, but I'm wondering why I'm seeing Bloomberg and Steyer commercials and Facebook ads, but no Sanders ads/commercials. ESPECIALLY so close to the Iowa primary. I'm in MN, we vote before Iowa, so it's especially weird to me that I'm not seeing more Bernie push via commercials/ads. What's typically the strategy with stuff like this? Is Bernie's campaign waiting until AFTER the Iowa vote?

First time poster here. I'm semi retired and recently started learning After Effects / Premiere. I'm also a big supporter of Bernie so I made my first video about him! I'd love to know what you all think. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPFUmJpT9aE

I’d also welcome any comments and suggestions on how best to join forces with others making media to help get Bernie elected.

Defending Bernie and our “Mental Bandwidth”

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

I just watched Faiz Shakir's campaign update, during which someone asked the question: "What should we do when we see Bernie being attacked online?" His answer was to not engage and instead use that "mental bandwidth" towards something more positive and constructive, which I found very insightful. I myself have been arguing with Biden and Warren supporters in r/politics recently, and it's incredibly draining (not to mention useless).

As the attacks ramp up approaching the first caucus, it's more important than ever that we maintain the mentality Faiz is encouraging. If you see someone outright spreading disinformation about Bernie, then correct them once (if someone else hasn't already) and move on. Channel whatever additional anger/frustration you feel towards phone banking, texting, donating, canvassing, or whatever would contribute positively to Bernie's campaign. It's what he would want.

I will start by taking my own advice. I've just donated to the campaign and signed up to canvass in NH, and it feels so much better than wasting my time pointlessly arguing!

WE CAN DO THIS!!!!!

Need help finding a Bernie campaign ad with female singer…

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

I want to share this with friends, but can't find it again. It's the full song with a female singer doing a cover from maybe the 60s or 70s. The imagery has Bernie out with diverse demographics, lots of women, hugging people. There's a shot of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nina Turner, I believe, and other women out working for him. Any help would be appreciated!
