Spike Lee: Bernie Sanders 'Will Do the Right Thing'

Filmmaker officially endorses Democratic candidate in audio clip


By Kory Grow February 23, 2016

Filmmaker Spike Lee has officially endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. In a one-minute SoundCloud, the Do the Right Thing director told South Carolina to "wake up" and throw their support behind the Vermont Senator during the state's Democratic primary, which will be held on Saturday.

"I know that you know the system is rigged," Lee said in the recording. "For too long, we've given our votes to corporate puppets. ... Ninety-nine percent of Americans were hurt by the Great Recession of 2008, and many are still recovering. And that's why I'm officially endorsing my brother Bernie Sanders.

"Bernie takes no money from corporations," he continued. "Nada. Which means he is not on the take. And when Bernie gets in the White House, he will 'do the right thing.' How can we be sure? Bernie was at the March on Washington with Dr. King. He was arrested in Chicago for protesting segregation in public schools. He fought for wealth and education equality throughout his whole career. No flipping, no flopping."
