Published on April 29, 2021

Senator Bernie Sanders speaks frankly about the challenges of balancing a divided Senate, and how difficult it is to work with members who continue to spread the “big lie” about the 2020 election results. #Colbert #BernieSanders #SenatorSanders

    Bernie is always made to talk about how bad Trump republicans are or how wonderfully progressive Joe Biden has been.
    So far Joe is doing okay but he isnt even living upto what he said he would do in his first 100 days.
    They are not allowing Bernie to talk about progressive ideas he supports that the country needs.

    The prevailing attitude and understanding that should be shared by ALL Democrats is that the country is at war between democracy and fascism. The GOP is reduced to a puppet for corporate oligarchs who want to destroy government regulation and taxation, white supremacists, and unbalanced paranoid lunatic seditionists. This regrettably puts them out of the legislative process, just as would be the case if this were Germany’s old Nazi party.

    Sen. Sanders last statement was tremendous. I’m about ten years behind Sen. Sanders in age, but I still teach young people and yes, THEY. ARE. INSPIRING. They want success but not at the expense of others, i.e. they do not believe in the Donald Trump zero-sum game. They’re not playing Monopoly in real life. They don’t get their jollies by shouting, “Nyah, nyah! I win and you lose, Loser!” That is, they are more mature than the 74-year old who recently left the White House. Keep listening to them and being energized by them, Sen. Sanders.

    Sanders just gave a good example how Democrats think they can maintain power : pass legislation ;
    How different with the way Republicans see it: limit voting access to those that do not support you

    I love that the Democrats in Congress are united. The Republicans are not and most of them want our country to be a dictatorship.
    They are trying to take away our vote because the only way Republicans can win elections is by cheating.
    WAKE UP, Joe Manchin, and get behind the S1 voting rights bill before you have a country run by an autocrat!

    When even the best policies come from one of the DNC puppets it is still cringe inducing to watch, and makes it only that much harder for folks inclined culturally to the ‘right’ to pay any mind to what even they would benefit from. We need an honest, incorruptible and passionate person passing these policies (and more). We needed this man as President. It was by far and away one of our country’s biggest missed opportunities. And as always, my hat is off to this man turning every cheek, laser focused on the issues and pushing the policies. Remember, it wasn’t FDR who was most inspired in implementing his policies, it was his behind the scenes labor secretary who held his feet to the flames to get it all done. Sound familiar? My hat is off to you Bernie Sanders – a true hero.

    In the old days. Red Socialist Fascist Racist Republicans that sought to overthrow the Democracy & The Constitution of the United States. Well, They would be taken out and shot. Lynched on the front lawn of the Capitol. Returning the Jim Crow rewards to the Red Socialist Fascist, as a solution.
    Democrats say they are too civilized for such actions. Will this be the new Mantra for dealing with all Red Socialist Fascists throughout the world? Myanmar, China, Russia, Syria, etc.

    I love Bernie and I share his optimism and inspiration from our youth. I am often moved by people like Greta Thunberg who simply make use of our current technology to put their voice out there about important issues and are not swayed by the obvious and shameful lies pushed by the opportunistic charlatans in power! I look forward to hearing what my kids will say when they are old enough to follow her example. Social media is a tool that can be used for great good and great evil. I intend to teach mine to use it for good as set by Greta’s and Bernie’s examples.

    The rest of the free world too shares the American youth view that Mr. Sanders finds inspiring. And how not. (i’m not American, just got interested in your country’s 2020 elections not even because i & other people felt strange about how the US was governed, but because i admired a lot what i heard from one of the past Dem candidates. God Bless all of USA, always.🙏)

    You know, I think I’d find it “difficult” to work with senators that support racism, spreading false claims and lies, deliberately denying certain groups of US citizens the vote, open support of extreme right wing domestic terrorism, destruction of US democracy and the complete denial that Biden won fairly.

    AT THE SCENE OF THE CRIME! That’s what gets me about this whole “Debate.” It happened on the floor of the House, and the Senate. Only the Elephant in the Room is trying to present “Alternative facts” of the event to Senate Majority Leader Bernie Sanders. As if he wasn’t right there, with them, when it happened.

    it’s only now with video and an internet that connects everyone,
    they are getting noticed more and more as the enemy’s of the people that they really are!
    And those people who follow them have only blinded themselves to the truth because they feel they have no choice , and are (by the republicans design btw), woefully uneducated &willfully ignorant …..

    The republican party is the enemy of the people and must be stopped.
