My Report from the Feel the Bern Rose Parade March!!! (pic heavy)

Finally able to post this... I was so exhausted afterwards from not sleeping enough the last two nights and walking 7 miles and hanging with some people I met there afterwards that I came home, ate and fell asleep on the couch watch local news. Not before seeing the local ABC news cover the Berners though!!!

Just over 300 people RSVP'd to the event. We met at a park near the beginning spot of the parade. There was some prep going on, decorating the small float, practicing a song a couple guys were going to sing during the march and then a rally.

The Bernie Sanders campaign endorsed this event and sent a representative, Becky Bond, to speak at the rally. Here is a link about her: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/bernie-sanders-becky-bond_5617c573e4b0e66ad4c75d6b

It was really incredible to do this march. It made me feel so happy. What a great idea! And there was still thousands of people there since we were right behind the parade and they saw us and were mostly receptive to us. We got a ton of high fives from those right up at the street and got some shouts from people up in their houses at the beginning of the route and then from people up in bleachers later on. RVs were honking their horns and some people joined us along the way so our numbers grew!

So it was the parade, then tow trucks then a couple trucks with sheriff dept officers then us. Well there were a few religious fanatics at the very front as you'll see in a couple of the pics. I saw one of the officers taking video of us with his cell phone at one point!

Oh yeah, there were a ton of Iowans there since Iowa was playing in the Rose Bowl so I was making a point of yelling "Go Iowa!" when I passed them. One time there was a woman in full Iowa clothing who yelled out asking if someone had a button for her. Immediately several people handed her a button and some bumper stickers. And throughout the parade we had small flyers that we were handing out to people as we walked by.

I can't tell you how great it felt to have so many people yelling Bernie back to us and "Feel the Bern". I really think this is going to happen. More now than ever. The people LOVE Bernie! They lit up smiling and cheering!

And as I briefly mentioned above, the local Los Angeles ABC news covered this! It was short but sweet and they showed video. So that's cool!

So on to the pics (all take by me but I'm going to find and add one that's from high up so you can get the perspective of what people were seeing)...

I got there around 7:30am, my view upon arriving:




T-SHIRTS THEY GAVE OUT:




THE FLOAT BEING DECORATED PLUS OTHER RANDOM PICS:


















TONY TIG BEING INTERVIEWED:
(he performed his Bernie song at the rally with his sister)




RALLY BEFORE HEADING OUT TO PARADE:




BECKY BOND - SANDERS CAMPAIGN REPRESENTATIVE - SPEAKING AT RALLY:




THEN WE HEADED OUT TO GET BEHIND THE END OF THE PARADE.
On our way out there were three people dressed in what appeared to be Native American or Central American attire drumming and burning sage (?) on opposite sides of the street as we walked between them to get to the parade:










NOW ON TO THE PARADE!!!
















LOOK AT THE CROWDS THAT SAW US, AND THERE WERE ABOUT A DOZEN OF BLEACHERS LIKE THIS PLUS AREAS WHERE IT WAS JUST PEOPLE ON THE SIDEWALK. IT WAS AMAZING!!!








A BERNIE SUPPORTER CHATTING UP AN OFFICER, THEY WERE SMILING AND LAUGHING WHILE TALKING:

Adding my post to my journal so I can find and steal your pic and link.

And maybe even the yawn!



.

Replying and entering in journal so I can find your links later.



Oh, aren't you coy.

You hide all the evidence in the secret basement and then invite everyone to come look in the living room as proof that there's nothing to find. You really do think we are stupid over here, don't you.

That's rich. We all know you hid the worst of it from public view. It is astounding that you think no one knows what's going on. Like a 7 year old lying to their parents about something that they clearly know about.

Also if you think it's a hate site, please I beg you report it to the SPLC. Then this matter of a "hate site" can be cleared up.

Now you're really showing how immature you are.


Okay... jury... he asked for the links and the evidence... Drumroll please...

If that doesn't convince you... well even if it does, you'll never admit it. But thanks for getting me to put them all in one place. Now I can add this post to my journal for reference.

Hm... we're gonna have to make a new "rear view mirror" pic soon.



I COMPLETELY agree with you. I said that because that's the accusation made to anyone who points

out that Bernie is an unknown when they are explaining why Bernie has low polling across the board. We are then accused of saying that PoC are stupid and uninformed. Thank you for proving that is not what we are saying at all.

The fact is that Bernie is not a household name as Clinton is. If he were he would be polling much higher among all racial groups.

Yeah, well, apparently the new talking point is that it doesn't matter what someone did 50 years ago

I've seen that several times in the last couple days.

So then who cares who becomes president if their record means nothing? It's a bullshit talking point. One person I saw say it may be saying it out of anger, but I believe this whole attack on Sanders that has been going on since before the BLM incident is a calculated attempt to take him down on his strength. Swiftboating. Look at how rabid Hillary supporters keep going on about this issue with Bernie. Look at how those who are 'undeclared' in their support never go after Hillary about racial issues even though she ran an ugly race-baiting campaign against Obama. No wonder "the past doesn't matter" is the new talking point.

replying so I can add to journal and find your post.
