National Berniecratic Candidates

Okay, so I hope this post does not get locked. I have helped compose a list of progressive primary challengers to centrist incumbent Democrats. Some of them are endorsed by Local Berniecrats, Our Revolution, Justice Democrats, DSA, or Brand New Congress. But, Brand New Congress only endorsed THREE challengers. Justice Democrats only released TWO new challengers. Our Revolution is not yet accepting 2020 nominations. We NEED to get rid of a few centrists at least in 2020 if we want to change anything, and they need to build their following now so they WILL get endorsed later. So, I am going to first post all of the candidates endorsed by official Berniecratic sources. Then I am going to post a link to Twitter — I and another person have been compiling a list of progressive primary challengers who have a platform and issues page that mirrors the Bernie platform. Most of these candidates have confirmed they are TRYING to be endorsed by a Bernie-friendly source. We have compiled over 40 challengers. Follow. Share. Vote.

First, make sure you double-check https://localberniecrats.com/ periodically. This site has local, state, and national candidates. Some of the candidates on the Twitter list are on Local Berniecrats already — but that will take forever to cross-reference on here. We all need to be thinking about Congress as well as Bernie. We need to send in warriors to back him up (like…if all candidates could be like Joshua Collins from Washington's 10th, that would be excellent, he needs to be nominated and endorsed.)

Second, double-check Justice Democrats https://www.justicedemocrats.com/candidates (Jamaal Bowman, NY-16, Jessica Cisneros, TX-28)

Third, check https://ourrevolution.com/candidates/ (No 2020 challengers, but some 2019 races)

Fourth, check https://brandnewcongress.org/ — Three challengers on the Twitter primary list (Cori Bush – MO-01, Anthony Clark, IL-07, Adrienne Bell TX-14)

Fifth, check out the Twitter list here (49 members!): https://twitter.com/rss303/lists/primary-challengers

Sixth: If you like one of the Twitter list candidates, and live in their area, nominate them for Justice Democrats, Our Revolution (when they start nominating), Local Berniecrats, and Brand New Congress. Below is the membership list for the Twitter list — each candidate has a website that clearly states what their issues and goals are — There may be a dud or two in here, but I've checked and double-checked and I cannot imagine that these candidates won't get endorsements (some who have been endorsed are listed below again).

Again, praying that this post is not locked because idk how else to get the word out about these candidates — one gets drowned out on Twitter and Facebook. But there are 200k of us, if we got these people some attention, we could win. If you are aware of any other progressives running, let me know…and for the love of God if one of these candidates is in your district, write a letter to the editor, nominate them for an endorsement, etcetcetc.

If you look at only the polls from establishments that have an A- or higher from 538, Bernie has been in 2nd place in 9 of 14 polls (65%) since the beginning of June.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

  • It's very clear that Sanders has the most dedicated following of supporters. Contrary to the narrative that the corporate democrat media wants to tell, Sanders has the most solid following out of all the candidates, and it's least likely for his polling numbers to collapse.
  • He is absolutely dominating in the social media game, which means that his message is getting out there despite the media wanting to stop it.
  • Bernie is the most liked candidate and he is being pitted against the safe-bet candidate, meaning the best thing we can do is try to dispel of notion that he can't win against Trump, so we should back the "safe" candidate who will. Not only did we make that very mistake last time, but it's simply not true that Bernie can't win. He is popular. Take to the streets and shout to the heavens, "Bernie is popular!"
  • If you have anymore stats, reply with them and I'll add them to the post.

Last night, we heard a lot of candidates talk about how much they support Bernie’s ideas/plans…which begs the question…why vote for people who support his plans when you can vote for the man himself? #Bernie2020

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

They all wanted to talk about medicare for all, tuition free college, a green new deal, etc.

Elizabeth Warren even gave Bernie props when asked about his Medicare for All Plan?

But why should we vote for people who merely support his ideas, and didn't dare do so until he had already made them wildly popular, when we can actually vote for the man behind the plan himself?

Talk to your friends. Donate. Engage. Be involved. Don't stop. Until we fucking win.

The second night will feature former vice president Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the two leading candidates in early polling, in what could be an epic clash over whether the future of the party rests in democratic socialism or bipartisan pragmatism.

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

rests in democratic socialism or bipartisan pragmatism….

Even that simple statement by the Washington Post — which they THINK is objective –shows that every news outlet is supporting Biden. Its the subtlest of propaganda.

How about PRO Sanders with this:

rests in reducing income inequality or keeping the status quo

OR

rests in giving power to unions and workers or keeping corporations and job creators their current status

OR

rests in increases taxes for the rich or reducing there tax burden

OR

rests in universal healthcare for all or having corporations dictate healthcare terms

That would be 'subtle' propaganda for Sanders. Pro Sanders remarks, and you NEVER see that on ANY corporate owned news news outlet. Someone needs to start a "Is this Propaganda Channel" So we can make people aware how they are being manipulated. It is often very difficult to see.

And Biden is such a weak, wishy-washy corporate sellout that they cant even find something that strong to emphasize.

This was posted earlier but quickly removed .

Here is the article

Judging from the authors twitter feed not including Bernie was an accident. https://mobile.twitter.com/AllyHutzler

You can contact Alexandra Hutzler via email [email protected]

Maybe if enough of us speak up she can not just edit the list but issue an apology. How all MSM should stop forgetting about him.
