Bernie Sanders Campaign Should Stop The White Women's Privilege Lectures

Bernie Sanders Campaign Should Stop The White Women's Privilege Lectures

Last February Jennifer Wright addressed Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders’ problem with women, writing Bernie Sanders’ Sexism Problem for Harper’s Bazaar.

“We have got to look at candidates, you know, not by the color of their skin, not by their sexual orientation or their gender and not by their age. I mean, I think we have got to try to move us toward a non-discriminatory society which looks at people based on their abilities, based on what they stand for.” Vermont Public Radio, Feb. 2019

Many women and people of color view that statement as a reaffirmation of the “let white men rule, we’re better at it” theory of political governance. Wright perfects her roast of Sanders, and I encourage to read her piece, while I pull out a few highlights that still simmer in my conscious as a super active person in the Hillary Clinton campaign.

There was a bit of poetic justice when women who worked for Bernie in his 2016 primary campaign came forward to discuss how they were paid less and experienced sexual harassment. You see, with rare exceptions — finally hiring Symone Sanders who served as his national press secretary until late June 2016 — Bernie couldn’t really find many good women of any skin color to hire at a high level. His campaign was run by white men — a feature that he has fixed in his current 2020 run for the Democratic nomination.

Still, when women working in the field and as organizers complained about both wages and fending off sexual advances from male staffers, Bernie grabbed his mop of white hair and defended his inaction saying initially “I was a little bit busy running around the country”. After all, Bernie Sanders said that “women’s issues were a distraction” and Planned Parenthood — who is getting the crap kicked out of them by the Trump administration — is “the establishment”.

Clinton, Sanders, Obama: The Democrats Try To Define Terms of a Peace Treaty

Since releasing this post earlier, Senator Pernie Sanders has met with President Obama and about 90 minutes later President Obama released his HIllary Clinton endorsement video.

The duo will set off for Wisconsin next week in their first campaign event together.

Dear Berners: A Word About Your Threatened Coup! HillaryWomen News

Hillary insists that we behave with decorum and compassion at this difficult time in the Sanders campaign. We are digging deep into our souls because we remember how we felt exactly 8 years ago, when Hillary took herself out of the election. She was way closer to being tied with Obama than you are with her.

BUT, if you think that you will wrestle the Democratic nomination out of Hillary Clinton's arms over some silly poll argument that EVERY major polling organization says is nonsense; if you think that you are going to stage a coup against a lead of probably 3.5 million votes by midnight and 300 pledged delegates -- well you have a pussy riot waiting for you in Philadelphia.

Whatever demonstrations you have planned will wither compared to the millions of women and men across America who will be marching to Philadelphia to protect what Hillary Clinton has won fair and square. You think we have no enthusiasm?? You think again.

We just want you to understand where the Hillary crew is coming from. And it won't be pretty. When I saw these glam biker babes, I just had to get my point across. ~ Anne
