I’ve got my fingers crossed for big Bernie wins in Oregon and Kentucky. Meantime, I want to vent a bit more about the shit that went down in Vegas.
The news coverage is ridiculous. I just watched a thing on the primaries on CNN (CNN Europe, but still) They talked a lot about Trump and then they said “And now, on the Democratic side…” and the female announcer turned and said to the male announcer “Wait a minute, before we get to that, I think we should talk about this hard-hitting new Clinton ad (it was nothing special, just some of the horrible things Trump’s said about women) and they never actually did cover the Hillary-Sander’s race. In fact, they did not mention Bernie Sanders at all. They also didn’t mention the convention in Vegas at all.
Then, I just read the New York Times article on the event, which not only didn’t report it honestly, they reported it pretty much the opposite of honestly. They reported a story that did not happen. They quoted Roberta Lange, the woman who claimed no was yes despite clear audiotape to the contrary, gavelled the convention to a close despite the rules, and stole about a dozen delegate seats. She said they had to end the convention early because they were fearful for their safety. Bullshit. They closed it down early so they could steal the votes.
The direct lying, and the denial of Sanders’ existence on the part of American media is the scariest part of this election, and the greatest reason why I’m not voting for her no matter what. A vote for Hillary is a vote the Democracy doesn’t apply any more.
Then, I’ve been trying all day to post Bernie memes, but can’t access the site. That may be a conspiracy on the part of the internet people, but it could also just be because my computer’s too damned slow.
