Thank you, Bernie

I did not vote for Bernie during the primary but I'm interested in campaign TV ads dating back to the first campaign I was old enough to have any awareness of, 1984.

This gem is from the Sanders campaign. It began to air way back in January (Seems like a lifetime ago). It is a beautiful ad. An all timer IMO. And I believe it tells us exactly who Bernie is. Thank you for your efforts to make our country better, Senator. They are greatly appreciated.

MSNBC: AP says Hillary is the presumptive nominee!!!!!!!!

Per the AP

"The White Entitlement of Some Sanders Supporters" - Daily Beast

If you’re young, white and privileged, you don’t expect to lose. When you do, it must be because you got cheated. Blacks know better.

“Killary Clinton is stealing the nomination and the system is rigged against Bernie Sanders,” said the two young white guys standing behind me in line. They rambled incessantly about how she was cheating and could not be trusted. Superdelegates were their greatest frustration. Unelected delegates who could “decide” the nomination proved that the process was a sham that was intentionally set up to prevent Sanders from winning.

At first I tried to ignore the conversation and thought they were Trump supporters (“Killary” is usually a right-wing thing). But once it became clear that these guys were Sanders supporters, I had to jump in. For years, these guys had been “my people.” I have been a fan of Sanders long before his presidential run and have made many friends due to our mutual admiration of his policies. Surely, I’d be able to have a civil, rational conversation with these guys, right?
