One of the saddest things was watching young ppl get yelled at "YOU HAVE TO ORGANIZE YOU HAVE TO VOTE YOU LOSERS" and they phonebanked and canvassed their asses off for months...only to lose, in some states, to a candidate who never opened a single office in that state.
Less than an hour after Bernie Sanders said he was ending his campaign, dozens of staffers who worked for Clinton 4 years ago received a link to a Zoom video call scheduled for 4 p.m: “Invitation: Bye, bye Bernard (HFA celebration toast)" via @rubycramer
Replying to @nataliesurely: Try to imagine, for a moment, the ~absolute fucking meltdown~ these exact people would have about this if the roles were…
GOP officials and conservative jurists forced Wisconsin voters yesterday to choose between risking their lives to vote and being disenfranchised. It’s unconscionable.
We need to act now to make sure every citizen can safely cast a ballot in November.
This is literally what Tom Perez and Biden did in Florida, Arizona & Illinois and wanted to do in Ohio.
Try to imagine, for a moment, the ~absolute fucking meltdown~ these exact people would have about this if the roles were reversed. Think of how they reacted to snake emojis, then multiply it by a number you’ve never even heard of. Their wails would literally be audible from space
Thank you @BernieSanders @SenSanders @briebriejoy @ninaturner @iPhilSomething @DrDooleyMD @davidsirota @NaomiAKlein @KeeangaYamahtta @BarbaraRansby @TheBarbaraSmith @DarrickHamilton @CarmenYulinCruz @janeosanders @KeaneBhatt @RashidaTlaib @IlhanMN @AOC @CoriBush
Deepest gratitude, Bernie. You articulated a vision for a much better America & we’ll keep working to make it happen. For those who’ve supported you, it will take a few days to process this. But we’ll rise up with passion & renewed dedication, always with your name on our hearts.
Bernie is a force for good who mainstreamed humane policies & the hope they can be won. He deserves massive gratitude & continued dedication to what he sparked. I only wish Bernie had shown the same disdain for the Democratic neoliberal elite as they did for him & his movement.
I believed Anita Hill. I believed Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Tara Reade. The #MeToo "feminists" who don't believe her can't say so overtly, so they're deleting their tweets, remaining silent or shooting the messenger #IbelieveTaraReade #IbelieveTara
