    I hope everyone realizes that the DNC will always support the candidate that is establishment. They claim they’re trying to be more fair this year but I seriously doubt it. They support Joe Biden and you’ll see it very soon.

    And he dodged that question about bernie. The dnc is terrified of him just like the republicans are. Oh no, hes gonna make my doner money go bye bye! Better not give him any kind of fair chance.

    The DNC is actively working against Bernie Sanders. They are not fair with everyone. Their plans are with Biden, PERIOD!
    Let’s stop the BS, we are watching closely and if Bernie continues to get kicked around, I guarantee that millions of Democrats and independents are not going to vote for no one, including myself and every member of my family. We are staying home the election day.
    All we want is fairness with all progressive candidates, specially Bernie who is getting a rotten deal from the DNC and the media.

    Personally don’t think Biden should take on Trump. As I have seen in the comments that would be a repeat of 2016. Let him focus on major issues. Don’t let the insults stop him from focusing on the major issues

    Perez is a strategic hack; the DNC chose the only candidate that could lose to the dumbest person on earth. Don’t trust these corporate shills!
    The only real choice is Sanders! #Bernie2020

    Allah Cursed the Disbelievers Among the Children of Israel

    Allah says;

    لُعِنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِن بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عَلَى لِسَانِ دَاوُودَ وَعِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ ذَلِكَ بِمَا عَصَوا وَّكَانُواْ يَعْتَدُونَ ﴿٧٨﴾

    Those among the Children of Israel who disbelieved were cursed by the tongue of Dawud and `Isa, son of Maryam. That was because they disobeyed (Allah and the Messengers) and were ever transgressing (beyond the bounds).

    Allah states that He has cursed the disbelievers among the Children of Israel long ago, and revealed this fact to His Prophets Dawud and `Isa, son of Maryam. He cursed them because they disobeyed Allah and transgressed against His creatures.

    Al-Awfi reported that Ibn Abbas said,

    “They were cursed in the Tawrah, the Injil, the Zabur (Psalms) and the Furqan (Qur’an).”

    Allah then states that during their time, their habit was that

    Many here have pointed out that DNC isn’t supporting #Bernie.
    Well, I am not exactly well versed with the intricacies of the topic, so can someone please explain (preferably in detail) why it is so? Why is DNC [seemingly] against #Bernie2020 ?

    Also, why do polls rank Biden higher than Bernie, esp. when most people seem to like want Bernie ?

    Trevor I know this is off topic but, can you please do a story on bgr talking on how God feels that young girls should be married and having children as soon as they have started menstruating please!?
    I’ve known of these since a child but I feel that it rarely gets talked about the large amount of people within this religion who justify grown men raping underage girls because in their sick heads God says it’s what’s right.

    I hope I’m wrong, but I have a strong suspicion that they’ve already settled on a Biden/Harris ticket and that the primary will be as empty a piece of theater as an election in Russia or China.

    And then – again, I hope I’m wrong – the Biden/Harris ticket will lose to Trump.

    “Safe” candidates have never been safe, from either party. Just ask Romney, Kerry, Dole or Mondale. No one in the RNC wanted Trump, but they let the voters have their say and they won. And there was nothing inevitable or preordained about the victories of Obama or Bill Clinton. The DNC is so afraid of repeating 1972 that they’re willing to risk repeating 2016.

    Though I think the problem is that a lot of Democrats refuse to accept that Hillary lost. They think those 3 million votes matter more than the reality of the Electoral College. They blame all sorts of interference and shenanigans that could easily happen again. And they blame sexism – which makes it all the stranger that they’re now lining up behind a handsy hair-sniffer.

    And Harris isn’t going to help. Her record as prosecutor would draw protests if she were white or male. And she can’t even use that as a selling point because she has to pretend to be progressive so her California constituents won’t turn on her. As a result both centrists and conservatives will think of her as a hypocrite and the heartland voters will see her as a coastal elite. She is no Obama. And it doesn’t matter anyway because no one really votes for a candidate based on their VP pick (but they might vote against him based on their VP pick, which is what happened to McCain.)

    We are heading for disaster- and thanks to Pelosi, we won’t even hold Trump accountable for his crimes.

    Thanks a lot Perez. You’re our only hope for saving this country from itself and you’re blowing it. Hope you’re enjoying your corporate contributions.

    Tom Perez has such a diplomatic touch; hope the next democrat president appoints him special envoy to the middle east (another thankless job)
