    House Democrats Boo Bernie, He Answers With Why We Love Him

    Published on Jul 7, 2016
    Bernie Sanders was booed while giving a speech to Democrats in Congress. As he has done his entire career, he didn’t back down.

    Jimmy Dore breaks it down.

    Just in case you didn’t see this video. I don’t remember it. Love it.

    3. Screw those House Democrats – take names and we will find someone good to

    replace them as soon as we can.

    4. And that right there is one reason why they couldn't win the election

    They’re only interested in winning elections, but they’re too busy fighting the progressives in their own party  to have anything left to take on the Republicans. While they’re busy focusing on “winning,” Trump was traveling around the country talking, as Bernie did, about transforming the country, bringing jobs back, etc. His way of doing it is different, obviously, but logically, are voters more likely to vote for someone who tells them how he/she is going to make their lives better, or someone whose only talking point is fear of the other candidate.  I know many Democrats who ended up voting for Trump, and I know many Republicans who would have voted for Bernie.

    My brother was a delegate for Trump at the Republican Convention. He described the division in the Republican Party, and how the party “machine,” as my brother calls it, really didn’t want Trump. But in the end, they went with the candidate the people preferred. The Democrats, on the other hand, forced Hillary on us and ended up doing what the Republicans avoided, expending most of their energy fighting the progressives who wanted Bernie. No surprise that didn’t work.

    6. Over at my parents for Christmas, and wifi is spotty

    Could someone please give me a summary of the video?

    "Slavery followed, even voluntary slavery; the weak eagerly submitted to the strong, on condition that the latter aided them to subdue the still weaker. Then there were saints who came to these people, weeping, and talked to them of their pride, of their loss of harmony and due proportion, of their loss of shame. They were laughed at or pelted with stones." - Dostoevsky, The Dream of a Ridiculous Man

      7. I think it's better to wait to see it. Basically Bernie is talking to House

      Democrats and they boo him. He told them winning elections isn’t the only thing they should

      focus on. He was talking about remaking the country. They wanted to hear about how Bernie

      was going to help them beat Trump. But Bernie didn’t yield an inch.  The Democrats wanted to know

      when Bernie was going to support Hillary.  Jimmy Dore says it like only he can.
