Cornel West: Donít let media say youíre crazy because you donít support Hillary [View all]


Cornel West, a Sanders ally who is a member of the Democratic National Committee’s 15-person platform drafting committee, laid into Donald Trump at a Bernie Sanders rally in Washington, D.C., Thursday evening — and hit at Hillary Clinton, too.

“We know that Trump is a narcissist neofascist. … Don’t let corporate media convince you that simply because you’re not crazy about the milquetoast neoliberal sister Hillary that there’s something wrong with you,” said West, who was appointed to the platform drafting committee by the Vermont senator.

“But we know the difference between a neofascist and a neoliberal, so you make your own decision. I’m simply here to say that I love brother Bernie no matter what he decides, but you’re a free man and woman, make your decision based on your love for poor and working people.”

The rally came the same day that President Obama met with Sanders and then quickly endorsed Clinton. Following the meeting, Sanders said he would speak with Clinton about how to fight against Trump but declined to endorse her or drop out of the presidential race.
