Bernie Sanders Tells Supporters Booing Hurts Movement

He is very clear what needs to happen at the DNC...

In a meeting with supporters this morning, Bernie Sanders faced boos with a strong retort:

“It is easy to boo, but it is harder to look your kids in the face if we are living under a Trump presidency. Politics is not easy stuff. You don’t get everything you want tomorrow — ask the people who fought in the civil rights movement.”

This is consistent with what he said in an email yesterday:

Our credibility as a movement will be damaged by booing, turning of backs, walking out or other similar displays. That’s what the corporate media wants. That’s what Donald Trump wants. But that’s not what will expand the progressive movement in this country....

We have made great progress in the last year. Let’s continue going forward.

I would ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in any kind of protest or demonstration on the convention floor.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders”
