Okay this is funny, because Black tumblr was dead pushin everyone and even they mothers to vote for Bernie Sanders! I can’t tell y’all how many posts I came across encouragin people to register to vote and vote for Bernie Sanders!
Bernie Sanders got your vote because he acknowledges that the police brutality in America is extremely critical in today’s society and a reform must be made to change the way the police behave and act towards us, ESPECIALLY TOWARDS BLACK PEOPLE.
Bernie Sanders got your vote because he wants public education, including public colleges to be free.
Bernie Sanders got your vote because he wants healthcare for all citizens.
Bernie Sanders got your vote because he marched to MLK the day he made his “I Have A Dream” speech and organized resistance to segregation.
He got your vote because he believes that minimum wages should be higher for everybody, is aware of global warming, AND is aware of economic inequality.
but the MOMENT y’all hear that Bernie Sanders voted for war on Palestine, all of a sudden, you aint supportin’ him?
Like y’all expectin this nigga to be PERFECT!
Y’all was ridin’ his dick from the moment he announced his race to be the next US president, and y’all praised him for every word he said just moments ago!
Now he loses all credibility because of a vote? Y’all fake as fuck. Who you gonna vote for now? Hillary?
SHE AINT NO BETTER THAN YO MAN BERNIE!
WHO ELSE YOU GONNA VOTE FOR?!
People want politicians to be perfect. We need to realize that we will never agree with everything a politician has done in their life.
This is also an over-simplified bit of nonsense that puts Sanders in the same position as every liberal Jew ever: either 100% denounce Israel and all of its people or be seen as an Islamophobic murderer of Palestinian babies.
News flash: It’s more complicated than that. People might be aware of Sanders being asked about his (non-existent) Israeli citizenship in an NPR interview, but they should also pay attention to the rest of the interview where he is openly critical of Israel and supports a two-state solution. He flat out says he doesn’t know how that might happen (because no one does, if we did we’d have done it already), but he doesn’t agree with the actions Netanyahu has been taking.
In contrast, Clinton has strongly supported Netanyahu and is more conservative on every single other issue. You want a pro-Palestinian Democratic candidate? You’re not going to get better than Sanders. Yes, even though he’s Jewish.
