Please stop the “centrist” hate. Even Bernie is an independent in the Senate because of personal disagreements with the Democratic Party.

I've been seeing TONS of hate against centrists, independents, moderates, and so on. It's honestly gotten to the point where it is so prevalent that it seems not genuine, or influenced by some troll campaign. BERNIE IS AN INDEPENDENT! He's only running under the Democratic ticket because being an independent isn't a serious option when running for president.

Yes, the Democratic Party is objectively better than the Republican party. I don't think any "centrist democrats" disagree with this. But even Bernie recognizes that there is corruption within both parties.

Please stop demonizing and vilifying potential Bernie voters. You're not doing us any favors.

Which progressive organizations and candidates are the best bet for ensuring a progressive takeover of the Democratic Party?

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

Obviously this is a general question but I am curious which progressive organizations and candidates (other than Sanders) people in this movement have donated money/time to help.

I am considering donating to Our Revolution and Justice Democrats. I think Brand New Congress is misled to fund progressive GOP candidates, as it's a waste of time/resources and the GOP is beyond redemption. I can see the argument that just running progressive GOP candidates might move voters in deep red areas, but it still seems like too much effort for little result. Justice Democrats already has a track record and a better national profile so they seem more effective.

I also give monthly to my local Black Lives Matter organization and I would be curious to hear what other not-strictly-electoral organizations people donate/volunteer with.

With regard to candidates, I am considering donating to:

• Rep. Ilhan Omar

• Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

• Sen. Bernie Sanders (obviously)

• Former Sen. Mike Gravel (to get him to the debates)

• Rep. Ayanna Pressley

• Rep. Pramila Jayapal

• Rep. Rashida Tlaib

• Rep. Raul Grijalva

• Rep. Ro Khanna

Are there any other representatives or candidates who I should be paying attention and/or $ $ $ to?

Thanks for any information or advice you can give.

PS. None of the above is intended as a solicitation for anyone else to donate to the organizations or candidates I have listed. I am seeking information about what to do with my own resources.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/apr/28/bernie-sanders-v-the-democratic-establishment-what-the-battle-is-really-about

In a crowded Democratic presidential primary field, there is one candidate who has drawn sustained opposition from party elites: Vermont’s Senator Bernie Sanders. The New York Times reports that major donors, party operatives, senior lawmakers and rival candidate and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg have been attending private meetings where they discuss, among other things, how to prevent a Sanders nomination.
