This is a message from Bernie Sanders:
“If you think you are living in unusual and unprecedented times, you’re right. This is a moment in American history that kids will be studying in school for a very long time.
We are living through a pandemic that has claimed the lives of 120,000 Americans. And, now, after cities and states have “reopened,” the number of new cases is skyrocketing.
We are living through an economic meltdown where over 30 million workers have lost their jobs, and people across the country are struggling with hunger, evictions and unpayable debts.
We are living through a massive outpouring of rage against police brutality and murder and the systemic racism which has plagued this country since it’s inception.
And, in the midst of all of that, we have a narcissistic and demagogic president who defies science in terms of the pandemic, ignores the pain of the unemployed and hungry and, instead of leading the effort to combat racism, is actively trying to encourage violence and divide us up.
That’s the bad news.
Here’s the good news:
We are actively and successfully fighting back.
As a result of mass demonstrations across the country, local, state and federal governments are beginning to move toward holding police officers accountable and rethinking the very nature of policing.
And, at the ballot box, there are a number of strong progressive candidates who are taking on the political establishment, running great campaigns and have an excellent chance of winning their Democratic primary and general elections.
