    HARVEY WEINSTEIN URGED CLINTON CAMPAIGN TO SILENCE SANDERS’S BLACK LIVES MATTER MESSAGE

    [from October 7 2016]

    https://theintercept.com/2016/10/07/harvey-weinstein-urged-clinton-campaign-to-silence-sanderss-black-lives-matter-message/

    HACKED EMAILS SHOW that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, a longtime ally of Hillary Clinton and a major fundraiser for her 2016 campaign, urged her campaign team to silence rival Bernie Sanders’s message against police shootings of African-Americans. He suggested countering it with “the Sandy Hook issue” — a reference to Sanders’s opposition to lawsuits against gun manufacturers…

    In an April 10  email sent to Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, just days before the New York primary, Weinstein invited Mook to meet up. He pointed to a Sanders ad featuring Erica Garner —  the daughter of Eric Garner, who was killed by New York City police officers —  as well as growing support for Sanders among Latino activist leaders. “I’m probably telling you what you know already, but that needs to be silenced, probably with the Sandy Hook issue,” he wrote…

    Throughout the primary, Clinton repeatedly assailed Sanders for his voteto limit legal liability for gun manufacturers, specifically claiming that vote was preventing the families of victims of the Sandy Hook massacre from successfully suing the industry. It was a feature of her attack on Sanders during their final debate in New York on April 14.

    Sanders, meanwhile, countered with his otherwise strong support for gun control measures — and this incredibly powerful ad…

    It was not the only instance in the hacked emails where Weinstein discussed political strategy with the campaign. On February 17, Weinstein sent Mook and Marshall a David Brooks column titled “Livin’ Bernie Sanders’s Danish Dream,” where the conservative columnist chastised Sanders for wanting to adopt much higher taxes as well as an expansive welfare state.

      1. Another sickening act by the neoliberals.

        5. Dishonesty and corruption are endemic among neoliberals.

        The hits just keep on coming.

        Together, together, my friends, we have begun a political revolution to transform America, and that revolution, our revolution, continues. ~ Bernie

      2. This whole thing is weird

      Why are they throwing a Clinton crony under the bus right now? Did he agree to “take one for the team” and go down to distract from something else?

      Anyway, TV loves a scandal. The Bernie town hall won’t get a mention but we have to hear all about this pervert.

        13. They are always willing to defend the indefensible.

        There isn’t anything a little creative word parsing and a lot of cynicism can’t explain. Over and over and over again.

        I would prefer not to.

        16. That is their specialty

        It is getting to a silly point of asking which hand the coin is in, then yelling “look over there!”, and thinking they can put the coin in the other hand with no one noticing

      6. Oh wow. And weren't we supposed to be the racists too?

      Clinton supporter urges Clinton campaign to silence minority asking for human rights.

      "Someone hacks the DNC allowing all of America to see how the DNC operates as one of the most corrupt political machines in national history. Ergo, Hillary Clinton should be installed as President by judicial fiat. And if you do not agree to this scheme you deserve to be brought up on charges of treason because fascism." - NUGrrl, december 2016 “Once a person has been determined to be an UNTRUSTWORTHY LIAR, their pretend stances on important issues are simply not relevant to rational discussion.” – Ida Briggs, September 2016

      7. The longer this story on Harvey lives on and its no where near done,

      the more they lose. They all have the icky predator enabling gene…cheat, lie, and abuse people.

      8. Anyone who honestly believed that Bernie was anti gun control because of that

      vote has no critical thinking skills whatsoever. The guns operated correctly and did what they were intended to do, which is why we need bans on the weapons themselves. Allowing victims to sue the manufacturers would also mean that they could sue the manufacturers of the vehicles that drove them to their targets, the makers of steak knives, duct tape, bolt cutters, etc…anything that might be used in a crime. It’s illogical and wouldn’t pass the SCOTUS, but somehow the true believe-Hers fell for it!

        9. the precedent was tobacco, and carmakers have been successfully

        hit for bad design–but the problem is these things are always up to the courts, who’d say “as long as the gun doesn’t explode when you’re not firing it at innocent people, we rule …”

        it’s one of those ever-sticky knife-edge things–and, I keep reminding my Clintonistas, he got an NRA D+ to Ger F anyway, and even more importantly wants to get corporate money out of politics altogether, which is why we’re being subjected to the people who told Malala Yousafzai to STFU

          10. Court rulings on gun manuracturer liability for crimes has ruled against…

          those sueing the manufacturers.  (This had been going on well before the proposed law, and I doubt the legislation would have stood judicial scrutiny.)  I think they properly saw that this placed arms manufacturers into unique position of liability, thus voiding equal protection rights for them.

          Sanders clearly saw this as well.

      12. So Harvey was an asshole even before he was known to be a sleazy pervert

      Not at all surprising that he prefers neolib Turd Way politics then. 

      Fuck Kamala Harris. Fuck Borey Crooker. Fuck Joy Reid. And FUCK Hillary Clinton & her husband for destroying the Demoncratic Party.

      14. They certainly took his advice and swiftboated Sanders with Sandy Hook.

      If you were wondering what kind of cynical scumbag came up with that strategy I guess we now know the answer. Harvey Weinstein!

      I would prefer not to.

      15. Sex and race are just "tools" to this scum

      They don’t really care about anyone but themselves. They just pretend to care for votes.
