CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST CORNEL WEST THROWS HIS SUPPORT TO BERNIE SANDERS
Civil Rights Activist Cornel West Throws Support Behind Bernie Sanders
“Bernie Sanders & Cornel West: The radical alliance that could change everything” by MATTHEW PULVER
Civil Rights Activist Cornel West = Supports Bernie Sanders for his commitment to fighting racial injustice in America = On CNN he told host Don Lemon that Sanders is the best candidate for minority voters because West and Sanders have been advocates for civil rights issues for decades.
Sanders has become even more outspoken about his stance on racial inequality in America connecting with minority voters. West’s endorsement should give Sanders a boost in support with minority voters.
Sanders = Already enjoying success none can MATCH with crowds close to 30,000 = ROTHSCHILDS MAFIA’S MEDIA BLACKOUT = Many have no idea who he is = NYT writes “black voters have shown little interest in [Sanders]” and that “[e]ven his own campaign advisers acknowledge that Sanders is virtually unknown to many African-Americans..” = Democratic constituency
BUT the blessing of Professor Cornel West, one of America’s leading public intellectuals is HERE. = “I love brother Bernie. He tells the truth about Wall Street. He really does.” + “I’m not a Hillary Clinton fan at all.”
Sanders Flaw = Less-than-progressive position on the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory and its insanely disproportionate responses to extremists’ attacks from Gaza. = Sanders’ positions and rhetoric on the Israeli occupation are to the left of virtually all of Congress but a far cry from active dissent in support of Palestinians’ rights to territory and safety.
Sanders = First senator to boycott Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to congress in March = Sanders cited the crass campaigning he saw in the prime minister’s visit = “Congress of the United States being used as a prop or a photo opportunity for [Netanyahu’s] reelection campaign.”
