34. Not excellent by any means. That video editing was unfair and disingenous.

 

Sanders was asked specific questions at the Women of Color forum and instead of answering direct questions he just launched into shippets from stump speeches he has given thousands of times. Maher's staff should be ashamed of the editing that made it look like he was address direct questions when he wasn't.

The editing was clearly designed to set her up and make her look bad. Google the WOC forum and you will find out why Sanders was booed when he evaded answering direct questions.

That's a bullshit video.

40. How many people actually heckled Bernie out of well over a thousand attendees.

 

5, 10, 15?

On one question because they didn't want to hear Bernie's history aka; his inconvenient truth because they didn't want to hear his message of passionate universal egalitarianism, so in acting as gate keepers as if every American viewing the program already knew this or had no right to hear it, they cut him off.

How about the editing from MSNBC, (not to mention the one sided slant or narrative) on Joy's program not showing the applause after said heckling just a continuous loop of that one question and said hecklers "moment of glory."

"The Bernie does not connect with women of color" meme is totally at odds with with the reception, beginning, middle and ending of the town hall with the exception of that one incident by a few hecklers, and nobody knows what their real motivation was because they didn't let Bernie finish, it's also at odds with the polling but Joy; didn't want to hear that from Nina Turner, her mind was already made up.

Why are you downplaying it. Sanders keeps making these boo-boos with POCs. You'd thinking he'd have learned by now instead of always resorting to economic excerpts from his stump speeches when asked about questions on racism.

He should be ready for those kinds of questions and be prepared with more than stump speech shippets.

51. Are you not getting that the booing and applause were from different times...

 

during the forum? I mean who doesn't agree with his economic messages? That doesn't excuse his seemingly long-standing tone deafness on the racism in America v economics raises all boats issue going back to the 2016 campaign.

He should have long figured out how to answer those questions.
AAs know from centuries long experience that racism often trumps economic solutions because of...well, racists in America and how they quite often try to sabotage POCs from getting the economic benefits he espouses. We want to know what his solutions are, not just repeated recitations of his economic proposals.

Empty rhetorical devices may not add very much to rational dialog, but they certainly allow us the pretense we're making valid points!

72. Bernie has a rough time at She the People conference

 





Bernie Sanders was asked by a woman of color in the audience what he would do about the rise of white supremacist violence as President.

Instead he started talking about minimum wage and Medicare For All.

The audience claps when the moderator clocks him.

After getting called out for dodging specific questions about minorities, Bernie reminds the audience he "marched with MLK".

Audible groans/boos.

He wags his finger at them.

https://www.democraticunderground.com/128786745

Don't act like you didn't know what happened and why "WOC groaned and booed at BS" at #SheThePeople.

He's got to know question like that would come up at a WOC forum.

66. I did not, I asked you a question by your earlier posts the applause for Bernie meant

 

nothing it was all about one question and a few hecklers, not nearly the impact of larger and sustained applause for Bernie and not just on economic issues but on racial and criminal justice as well.

These cheerers would be predominately strong women of color and yet there was little to no coverage from their side, so their voices were effectively diminished by MSNBC and Reid.

I also stated my interpretation of the meaning of the title of the OP as "biased."

You are personally promoting that a strong woman on the left is deranged. Then you want me to sit here and answer your questions. There is no point in going deeper. The promotion of her as deranged, that you are personally doing, is.....

I suggest you keep beating this drum. Maybe if you can get interviewed by the news, with this being the topic, Sanders will drop another ten. Does he have ten more points he can drop? His free fall is epic.

Have a good night as you continue calling strong POC on the left.

7. Bernie seems to think that fixing income inequality solves most problems.

 

The only areas where he seem not to think that are guns and climate change.

But back to fixing income equality inducing a priviledged racist to give a POC a fair shot because the pie is shared more equitably. We have as much a chance of seeing live unicorns walking down Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Shameful, I always have liked her on MSNBC. Hopefully she apologises if she is ever back on that show.

In all fairness however, many of the non DU Sanders supporters do the same thing to Buttigieg. It is insane to call him some RW stealth neoliberal war monger. Fucking nuts. They also attack Warren, WARREN, as a fraud!

That is NOBBDS.

At that forum of women of color Sanders was asked specific questions by audience members but instead of answering the questions he launched into snippets of his stump speeches, which is why he was booed.

Unfair editing and Maher and his staff should be ashamed of themselves for setting Maxwell up to look bad.

Research his appearance at that forum and find out the real deal why he was booed. It made the cable news shows, Joy Reid's show, who was the moderator, and it was even discussed here.

I absolutely hate deceptive editing. I wanted to have a link to the real video in this thread so people could watch it and make their own minds about it.

10. Do Sanders people REALLY think disagreeing and quarreling with PoC

 

about what they should require of candidates is a winning strategy? Just what did all the white-splaining and antagonism and sniping that filled 2015 and 2016 gain?

Always that dissonance between avowed goals and actual behaviors in that camp.

Btw, my theory is that if Sanders did what PoC require for their backing he'd lose much of his populist support and that that is why he blows of their requests for specifics. He is leading both a sorta-socialist movement which wants to be a universal movement and a populist movement for which that could be very problematic. Thus, he doesn't want to show he knows exactly what PoC want and then be seen refusing to promise it. Better to be seen as (still!) earnestly bewildered over why they (still!) don't understand the value of his revolution to them.

'Bernie Derangement Syndrome'. Maybe the problem is with Bernie and not the women who are rightly skeptical of his empty promises.

You know, one can be progressive and yet disagree entirely with a specific person or persons of color, despite the implications of your response.

My RW relatives truly believe that they are not racist because they agree with Thomas and Cain.

as well. Those people worked actively to destroy the Democratic nominee. They passively helped Trump as they told lies about the Democratic nominee.

So no applause here for Sirota and his colleagues in deceptive scorched earth campaigns.

32. That video is edited unfairly. At the forum Sanders was asked specific...

 

questions on issues women of color have but instead of answering them he launched into excerpts from his stump speeches and as a result was booed.

The video was edited to make it look like he was addressing specific questions, which he didn't.

The video is also unfair to Maxwell.

Do they even have a clue why he was booed? And days later he slighted the AA community again. He is sure he will have a woman as VP but it’s too early to discuss minorities.

That is one of the most deceptive video edits I’ve seen.

Might be helpful if people promoting his campaign would stop referring to people as deranged as the deceptively edit their interviews. This is really sick behavior. Has the stench of David Sirota all over it.

54. A little context to show who the op is promoting as being deranged.

 

Zerlina Maxwell is an American political analyst, commentator, speaker, and writer. She writes and speaks about rape culture, sexual assault, gender inequity, sexual consent, racism, and similar topics.[1][2] She is herself a survivor of sexual assault and describes herself as a survivor activist.[1][3]

Maxwell has appeared frequently on CNN, FOX News, and MSNBC as a commentator and has written for the Washington Post, JET Magazine, The American Prospect, Black Enterprise, CNN.com, the Huffington Post, Salon.com, and Ebony.com.[4][5][6] Her Twitter account was named by The New York Times as "A Twitter Voice to Follow" in 2012,[7] as one of "Salon’s Twitter 50" in 2012,[8] and one of TIME's 140 Best Twitter Feeds of 2014.[9] The Cut magazine's Kaitlin Menza said that Maxwell as "has built a career around expressing her political opinions with wit and intelligence."[6]

Maxwell worked as a field organizer for the 2008 Obama presidential campaign,[10] and was Director of Progressive Media for the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign.[6] She is now Director of Progressive Programming for SiriusXM, and hosts a weekly radio show on SiriusXM, "Signal Boost."[6] In September 2017, Maxwell interviewed Hillary Clinton for a SiriusXM Progress Town Hall.[11]

https://mobile.twitter.com/ZerlinaMaxwell?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor

Something that is not highly edited, taken out of context, and being used in a diceptive manner.

She retweets everyone from AOC to EW. All positive.

Really bad form to refer to an influential black woman as being deranged when her life and career tells a different story.
