Who do you want to be on debate stage alongside Bernie?

I think there will be two different debate groups correct? And supposedly randomly picked candidates?

So who do you feel would be helpful or ideal to have on the stage alongside Sanders?

I thought about it a little and I want Warren, Gabbard, Buttigieg. NOT Biden and NOT Beto. I think Biden and Sanders would turn into a media horserace and they would encourage the PoV of an "old white dude brawl" or something. And I worry Beto is too "cool" and might trip Bernie up. But it would be very useful to get our guy to draw contrasts with Mayor Pete. And I want Warren and Gabbard there as potential allies/backup.

Your thoughts?

I never want to hear about how Bernie’s supporters are uniquely terrible on the internet again when liberals are currently harassing women online because they came out and shared their experience with Biden being inappropriate towards them.

Seriously. And these are also the same people who harassed a Muslim woman for daring to speak to Chelsea Clinton in a pointed manner about how she was fueling Islamaphobia with her comments re Ilhan Omar. Stop erasing and gaslighting Bernie’s supporters with the Berniebro horseshit. People on the internet can be assholes don’t try and use that as a way to attack Bernie because you don’t like anyone pointing out to you that the Democrats you’ve developed a bizarre psychological relationship with where they must be defended at all costs are often less than stellar.

In the lead up to the 2016 primaries something happens to which never had before, I began to care about politics.

At 22 years old having no previous interest in politics whatsoever this was surprising. But some old dude from Vermont was saying things that made sense, things I believed. Even more so, I believed that HE believed in everything he was saying.

Having landed myself a nice career making decent money I started donating. Amounts are irrelevant but it was a nice sum considering my financial status. And I was all about it.

When the race started tightening and it became clear two candidates were ahead of the pack Bernie WARNED us. He told us the power structure was reluctant to see these ideas through. To see him through. And they would stop at nothing to defeat us and our ideas.

And they didn’t. Even with proof that the DNC colluded with the Hillary campaign. Bernie stepped a side. He stepped aside for everything I was against. Hillary made disparaging comments about gay marriage. Hillary called my people super predators. She supported legislation that made it legal to discriminate against felons, who are disproportionately people of color.

Bernie asked me to support everything I was against. I couldn’t. I feel back into political apathy. Hill dog and her merry DNC stole the presidency and handed it to Donald Trump, proving all of my fears. In my mind Bernie sat idly by while this happened.

Now with the 2020 announcement I’m getting emails. I want to believe but I just need some assurance.

“Purity test” is a dogwhistle for “poor and minorities want a voice in the party

Now that Russiagate is all but over the neolibs have been spamming this old talking point to distract from discussions about policy.

Remember when a Democrat complains about “infighting” and blames Trumps win on it, they are talking about the infighting of poor, working class and minorities fighting for a voice in a party owned by monied interest.

When POC fight to dismantle systemic racism, when working class families fight to give their loved ones medical care they are smeared as “petty purist” by comfortable moderates and wealthy politicians who don’t see their problems as worthy of any real consideration.

When moderates blame purity tests and infighting on Trumps win they are saying that the poor and minoritys that are fighting for their rights, health care, education, and justice reforms are to blame.

This is a deeply cynical, racist, classist, take that for some reason social media and MSM have allowed to fester uncontested. This is a sick tactic by some shadowy PR firm that is targeted to silence and bully POC and working families.

When you see people parrot it you must call them out. We can’t allow the wealthy to undermine the progressive movement again. Too much is on the line.
