    Bernie Sanders to give opening night speech at Women's Convention

    Bernie Sanders will given an opening night speech next month to the Women’s Convention, an event organized by the activists who set up the Women’s March on Washington the day after President Trump’s inauguration.

    The three-day convention in Detroit is expected to attract more than 3,000 people, according to the Detroit Free Press.

    One of the organizers, Tamika Mallory, told the Detroit Free Press that Sanders is the right choice because he is in line with the principles of the Women’s March.

    “I think that right now, no one can deny that Bernie Sanders is probably one of the most powerful U.S. senators … on progressive issues, women’s issues, mobilizing millennials,” Mallory said.

    2. interesting. my understanding was that the women's march was

    connected to the forces of hilary

    there was a flurry of activity from hilaryites here locally at that time and a fair amount of big talk

    but it all petered out

      7. I thought that she probably just tried to jump on the bandwagon.

      Like she tried to with Bernie supporters.

    5. And you should hear the howls of outrage from "liberals"

    who think that the women shouldn’t have the right to pick a man to speak to their woman’s group.

    By that measure, Sarah Palin would have been a better choice, apparently.

    Because remember folks, it’s not what you do and what you stand for, it’s what color you are, the XX chromosomes you have, or the sexual orientation you proudly profess.

    6. Hell's gettin' crowded, eh?

    I guess there must be a special place in Hell for women who let the King of the Bernie Bros open their convention!

      10. Most definitely

      A peek there at the same article gets responses like “Many women are unhappy about it” and “this must be satire’ etc. etc.

       

      So predictable.

        Unless you are Peter Douche. I thought Peter Douche was Manny at first, but I’m not sure about that.
