|Harry Belafonte for Bernie Sanders|
First it was Madeleine Albright claiming her support for Hillary Clinton while condemning women to hell if they don’t help each other. The women for Bernie Sanders took it for what it was, a threat against their feminism and decided to firm up their backing for the Bern and then denounce Albright. Then yesterday, Albright said she regretted the way her remark was “perceived.” What the hell did she expect, this coming from a career diplomat?
If that wasn’t enough, civil rights leader John Lewis implied that Bernie sanders’ claim of being involved in the civil rights movement was not true because he didn’t see him there. But Harry Belafonte, who has been very active in civil rights and is supporting Bernie Sanders, chastised Lewis, his friend, saying he couldn’t have possibly seen everyone involved in the movement. Belafonte goes on to say he definitely saw Bernie Sanders involved in civil rights and that is the reason he is backing him now.
Albright is a staunch Democrat, as is John Lewis. It is tragic that because of this party connection, they feel compelled to support the party by trying to bring down Hillary Clinton’s opponent, Bernie Sanders.
