Zerlina Maxwell was recently called out as having Bernie Derangement Syndrome.

The proof, a highly edited and deceptive video put out by a Sanders front group that goes by MSDNC. The contributors are: @spittingback, a huge Nina Turner fan who trashes Democrat after Democrat including their staff. It is a one hundred percent Sanders account. Their main target is anything Biden or Clinton. Pretty sure they think Clinton is still running.

@_memorable2, a twitter handle that says "I make Bernie vids and graphics." This person sticks to two things. Loving Sanders and trashing Biden.

Last is @greg06897, who says if you will never vote for Bernie then you are either "don't care" or are and "asshole." This person enjoys comparing Biden to Trump and absolutely trashing the Democratic Party.

These are the people calling a strong and accomplished woman of color "deranged."

Here is who they put together a highly edited video together to attack as having "Bernie Derangement Syndrome."

Zerlina Maxwell

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 "Salonís 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]

Zerlina Maxwellís Secret to Taking On Sean Hannity

Zerlina Maxwell has built a career around expressing her political opinions with wit and intelligence. Her Twitter feed gained the attention of President Barack Obama first, then Hillary Clinton, who hired her to lead the progressive-media outreach during her presidential campaign. Maxwell is now the director of progressive programming for SiriusXM, where she also has her own weekly radio show, ďSignal Boost.Ē She regularly appears as a political analyst on prime-time TV, and speaks about sexual assault and other topics at colleges in engagements across the country. Here, she shares how she gets it all done.

On her morning routine:
I work out as soon as I wake up. I do Beachbody or Insanity videos on my iPad. I try really hard not to look at my phone until Iím done working out. My commute is at least 45 minutes, so I can listen to a good chunk of an audiobook in that time. I have an Audible subscription. I am reading a lot of books on communication and management because Iím in my first real management position right now. And Iíll catch up on the news. Iím flagging things, sending them to my producers so I can make sure weíre covering all the breaking stories. Iím always reachable en route ó all the producers are on a group chat ó because who knows how long the rideís going to take. The subways are a hot mess.

On her day-to-day:
Iím the director of progressive programming at SiriusXM. I started here in February 2017, after the Hillary campaign. The majority of my day is managing my in-box, managing my team, talking to my producers. I hate meetings. I hate them. I hate meetings, because I like to do stuff. You have all this work to do and youíre sitting here in this meeting that is pointless. I donít like conference calls either. I come from campaigns, where youíd have like 55 field offices calling in. Luckily, we donít have a lot of meetings here.


The Cut





I find it to be nothing short of disgusting to attack a person who is fighting for us. I see it as similar, and might be perpetrated by a similar person or group, to the old Stockholm Syndrome garbage that was promoted by a small group about five years ago and was directed at minorities.


If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

5. It's not her fault that Bernie is incapable of thinking on his feet.

 

He melts down if he has to deviate from his stump speech.

6. She's right about Bernie

 

But she didnít impress me much when she was on Maher's Show recently and said the statue of Ralph Cramden outside an NYC bus terminal should come down. She did a poor job of defending her position and seemed to realize it was extreme by the end.

7. This right here is how you do it.

 

You challenged one of her spoken positions without using deception or the word deranged.
Well done.

8. She isn't deceptive or deranged

 

Iím surprised/not surprised that defenders of the junior senator from Vermont are attempting to make that case.

Iíd think they would have bigger things to tackle right now than a Sirius XM host and MSNBC panelist. And thus ends the ďsurprisedĒ part of the post.

I am not surprised at the level of venom being directed at a Sanders critic by Sanders devotees.

9. I like Zerlina, a lot actually

 

Mainly because she is a strong voice for all liberals and she often challenges me to think outside my biases.

It's funny to me that Bernie is the one who crapped out at the She the People conference with his ham handed answer to addressing concerns of women of color. He has a major flub and his fanboys rush to his rescue by...attempting to tear down those calling out Bernie. It's ridiculous and I wish more folks could see through that crap. Yes, Zerlina worked for Hillary, yes she is asking and calling on Sanders to "be better" in the way he approaches issues of race. No that doesn't make her deranged. If people actually listened to her for more than a few sec edited sound bite, they might know that.

14. I agree. The trolls are hoping people didn't actually

 

see the full appearances of Bernie at She the People, and Zerlina on Real Time. I saw both, so I know that attack video is full of sh*t. Bernie was unable to answer direct questions and kept pivoting towards his stump speech, which is why ZM said what she said.

18. This shit is very O'Keefeian of them.

 

What does it say about some of our posters here when they post the leftie equivalent of James O'Keefe's doctored videos? It's not the first time either - remember the video of Diane Feinstein? Juries, or the admins if the juries end up leavibg it (like they left the infamous Stockholm Syndrome OP - so horribly racist) should remove such OPs and put the posters in time out.

following one person as if he were a demigod whose every utterance is divine perfection.
