Oh, and back progressives/socialists down ballot. Great peeps like @RashidaTlaib @SummerForPA are facing reelection primary challengers & need our help, as do some candidates challenging establishment incumbents during this terrible election cycle.
...like @OurRevolution @DemSocialists @CPDAction @sunrisemvmt etc for more direct opposition.
Push your congress ppl to back Bernie bills like MedicareForAll & Covid19 relief UBI.
Vote in remaining primary races by mail if u haven't. Call voters at
I don't know what Bernie WILL do, though, as his record would imply he will hold to his word & support Biden as the nominee.
So we as voters, Dems/leftists need action suggestions:
Pressure Bernie, Nina, Faiz, Jane to stay in this race.
Look to groups outside the party...
To combat fascism & the corporate Democratic establishment, we need to be thinking strategically.
Bernie SHOULD challenge the primary results & process. He shouldn't endorse Biden, especially as he puts us at risk during pandemic, is incoherent, & now accused of rape.
Democratic voters have a right to see a fair process play out at Convention, but that seems impossible now if Biden gets his way at pushing it to virtual only.
Our votes were discarded & suppressed. The establishment coalesced in a weekend around a man who won ONE STATE.
If it wasn't already due to the errors & continued outstanding votes, the Dem primary has definitely become invalidated today thanks to Wisconsin GOP w support from Biden. Thousands of mail in ballots thrown out, ppl told to vote in person during a pandemic.
So now what?

Replying to @BethLynch2020: we're all gonna die
Pretty gross for John Lewis to wait to endorse Biden until after the latter man has been accused of raping a former staffer.
Civil Rights, public health, sexual abuse survivors....no issue is too big for Democrats to ignore as they push an incoherent, handsy uncle Joe on America.
Polls open in minutes. Here’s a look at the line in Waukesha, the city’s only polling location
Remember: Randi Weingarten of the teachers' union encouraged this, saying Wisconsinites should just grab some hand sanitizer and a mask and go to the polls. Joe Biden refused to condemn it, too. Dems bear responsibility for this tragedy too.
Rationing runs deeper than ventilators & PPE. Some #COVID19 patients may receive extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), or cardiopulmonary life support, as an adjunct to ventilation & medical mgmt. ECMO therapy can be life saving but it's hardly guaranteed (1)
Rationing of ICU ECMO machines for #COVID19 - often seen as the “miracle machine” of last resort if even mechanical ventilators insufficient to sustain a patient. ECMO‘s are amazing but they are rare, expensive, & very ICU labor intensive. Here is a good thread from an ICU nurse:
Former Pres. George W. Bush warned in 2005 of the importance of being prepared for a possible pandemic: "One day, many lives could be needlessly lost because we failed to act today."
If you wonder why Trump and his flunkies act without fear of any accountability, I give you the rehabilitation of George W. Bush.
