Whether or not you’re feeling the full-bern, the partial-bern, or perhaps the no-bern, the language coming out of Bernie Sanders’ campaign is some of the most refreshing of the current political landscape.
Does that make him the right man for the job? Well, there’s room to go round and round on that.
But one is point clear — until we tip over some of the artificial walls that divide us, we’re playing right into the hands of those who clutch at power for the wrong reasons.
That’s the general message of a new ad created by Sanders supporters, using a rallying speech set against images of torn faces to drive home the idea of “togetherness.”
“If we do not let them divide us up by race, by sexual orientation, by gender — by not allowing them to divide us up by whether or not we were born in America, or whether we’re immigrants — when we stand together, as white and black and hispanic and gay and straight and woman and man — when we stand together, and demand that this country works for all of us, rather than the few, we will transform America.”
