Bernie is never gonna fucking win playing nice. I don’t care about “party unity”. People will come around when faced with Bernie or Trump.

Bernie will never win by being nice to Biden. Sanders represents REVOLUTION. What does that word mean? Biden is literally a guardian of the corrupt corporate system. And all Bernie can muster is pointing out he voted for Iraq and softly pointing out other things while praising his character and calling him a friend?

If I was uninformed I would vote Biden 100% and pointing out a couple policy differences wouldn’t sway me from the nostalgia of Obama. But if I was told over and over how corrupt Biden is and won’t do shit for me, I would wake up and vote Bernie.

We will not win playing fucking nice I’m so frustrated with Bernie

Control the conversation. It’s government paying of health care!

Don't let people say "government take over of health care." Explain to them how insurance works. The more the insurance market is fragmented through thousands of different plans the more everyone pays. People without insurance or with poor plans already are a burden on everyone else. If someone can't pay the hospital just passes the losses onto everyone that can. Finally, the belief that we only pay more because we are subsidizing other countries universal health care is nonsense. Universities and Nonprofits develop the majority of advancements in health care, companies just buy the patients and jack up the most important costs.

Felons voting is a dog whistle issue…And it’s a winning issue for Bernie in the primaries

I want to talk about the politics of this issue, I believe morally there is no debate on felon voting, but I think the politics of this issue is awesome for Bernie in the primaries.

Modern dog whistle politics was invented by Lee Atwater.

Y'all don't quote me on this. You start out in 1954 by saying, "Nigger, nigger, nigger." By 1968, you can't say "nigger" — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights and all that stuff. You're getting so abstract now [that] you're talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I'm not saying that. But I'm saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me — because obviously sitting around saying, "We want to cut this," is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than "Nigger, nigger."

African Americans(especially in the south) are very sensitive to dog whistle politics, sometimes not even consciously because it has been used against them for decades.

From welfare reform to "tough on crime" to "All lives matter", African Americans are very sensitive to white people using dog whistle language in order to put down blacks.

Felon voting is just the latest in a long line of dog whistles, and the stats are clear, millions of African American men are disenfranchised due to minimum sentencing, tough on crime and war on drug policies disproportionate to whites.

Notice all the people in the media attacking Bernie for this stance are priviledged white elites. AA will notice that Bernie was willing to take on a controversial issue and not back down. A largely racial issue. AA will notice that because white politicians have a history of abandoning AA when the going gets tough, when something becomes unpopular, blacks are the first demographic thrown under the bus.

So Bernie looks very good to blacks, especially southern blacks for willing to hold the line on this issue.

I expect this to be a winning issue for him amongst AA in the south. Even if they themselves are not affected by this, it signals that Bernie is for real and NOT someone who is going to pander and abandon.

Am I the only one who thinks it’s weird Bernie’s campaign is promoting the heck out of his website?

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

So I noticed this time around, Bernie’s banners at his rallies contain his website in very large font. I’m just curious why his campaign is doing that instead of making a banner with his slogan instead.

Of course I want people to visit his website but in its current state, it’s very empty. All you can do is volunteer and donate. You can’t even reach the store from the mobile site.

If his website had his stance on issues and a news feed it would make much more sense to promote the website, so people can learn about him and his policy proposals.
