Great! We're nobody's fools.. There's also a new NBC/wallstreetjournal poll

out on this..

https://twitter.com/RVAwonk/status/856624970256056322

"Because of this worldview, Sanders cannot see how..

and why non-economic issues negatively impact our communities. He cannot see how the wealthy African-American attorney still will be ignored by a cab driver due solely to the color of his skin. He cannot see how the Muslim doctor still has patients who are hesitant to see her because of her hijab. He cannot see how the gay software engineer still worries that he could be fired from his job simply for loving whom he chooses. He cannot see how the Latino businessman still worries that one of his loved ones could be deported. And he cannot see the young college student who relies on Planned Parenthood for her affordable healthcare needs."

Thank you for this article, Durham!

Please Proceed, Sanders..

Sanders has most recently set out to define what it is to be progressive by refusing to campaign for Democrat Jon Ossoff in his contested congressional race in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. “He’s not a progressive,” Sanders told The Washington Post about Ossoff — who is pro-choice, supports increasing the minimum wage, is anti-war and supports immigration reform. Meanwhile, Sanders set off to campaign with Heath Mello, the Democratic nominee for mayor of Omaha, who has a strong anti-choice record including having introduced legislation restricting abortion, and was quick to call Mello a progressive.

You don't get to tell pro-choice Democrats what they "need to do,"

Yeah, you need to talk to BS about your little graphic there.. he's the

one who is trying to divide.. and on the Unity Tour of all venues.

"Sanders managed to re-open old wounds when he explained why he was using the Democratic National Committee-sponsored tour to endorse Heath Mello, an Omaha mayoral candidate with an anti-abortion voting record, but not Georgia congressional candidate Jon Ossoff, who is pro-choice and fiscally moderate " As the Washington Post recounted: “’ not a progressive,’ said. He was endorsing Democrats based on their economic populism; they could differ from progressives on social issues but not on the threat of the mega-rich to American politics.”

Bull.

And, Jon Ossoff, in Georgia.. wonder what they

deem him, since BS still won't call him the "P" word.

Sanders endorses Ossoff, but won't call him a progressive

"When asked Wednesday whether Ossoff is a progressive, Sanders said to the Wall Street Journal: "I don't know."

Jon Ossoff took the high road..

Ossoff on whether he's a progressive: 'Not interested' in purity tests


snip//

Ossoff, who is running for the Georgia House seat vacated by Tom Price when he became Health and Human Services secretary, came close to an outright win in Georgia's special election on Tuesday but ultimately failed to reach the 50 percent threshold needed to avoid a runoff.

So Close!

I think the "P" word is now moot.

Omaha Mayoral Candidate Under Fire For Anti-Choice Past Vows To Protect Reproductive Rights

snip//

Mello co-sponsored a bill in 2009 requiring women to be informed that they could see an ultrasound before having an abortion, a move that national groups appeared to be unaware of until just now. Rewire reports further:

Mello is a sponsor of the final version of a 20-week abortion ban approved by the governor in 2010, and cast anti-choice votes in favor of requiring physicians to be physically present for an abortion in order to impede access to telemedicine abortion care, and a law banning insurance plans in the state from covering abortions. He was endorsed in 2010 by anti-choice group Nebraska

All this Backlash, against Mello, from us Women is Working.

Mahalo, SunSeeker.. so all this backlash from

"Tim Kaine is pro-choice, not pro-death"

snip//

My understanding is that what Kaine is supporting is the right of a woman to choose whether or not to carry that embryo to term. This should be a private decision between a woman and her doctor, and Kaine has rightly assessed that neither the state nor the church should be involved in it.

Mello is "Aggressively Anti-choice" and BS calls him a "progressive" but wouldn't lift a hand to support Pro Choice, Jon Ossoff on Election Day in Georgia..

Sanders voiced his support for Mello in a statement published Wednesday by the Wall Street Journal. “If this fellow wins in Nebraska, that would be a shot across the board, that in a state like Nebraska a progressive Democrat can win, that will give hope to folks in other conservative states that perhaps they can win as well,” he said.

Why Is the DNC Embracing an Aggressively Anti-Choice Democrat

snip//

He was endorsed in 2010 by anti-choice group Nebraska Right to Life.

Heath Mello has sponsored a range of anti-choice measures, including a 20-week abortion ban.

Heath Mello is a sponsor of the final version of a 20-week abortion ban approved by the governor in 2010, and cast anti-choice votes in favor of requiring physicians to be physically present for an abortion in order to impede access to telemedicine abortion care, and a law banning insurance plans in the state from covering abortions.

snip// Dkos pulls their endorsement of Heath Mello

The Daily Kos, which describes itself as “a news organization, community, and activist hub,” pulled its endorsement of Mello after revelations about the Democrat’s stance on abortion. The site said it had been unaware of Mello’s anti-choice stance, but that “as soon as we learned this information, we withdrew our endorsement, because this legislation clearly runs contrary to Daily Kos’ deepest values, including our support for women’s reproductive rights and our staunch opposition to laws that in any way impede women’s access to reproductive health care.”
