Tubman 20

Despite the best efforts from Hillary Clinton’s staff, advisors, surrogates and the candidate herself, Bernie Sanders isn’t dropping out, pulling back or shutting up, nor should she.

Bernie is not “dividing the party” or doing any other of the myriad accusations being hurled at him from the people who would like to usurp the will of the people to crown their Queen the “Democratic Party’s nominee” – which is laughable at this point as today’s Democratic Party has nothing in common with the word from which its name was derived, democratic (with a small d).

As the insults and accusations play in a continuous loop over the “public airwaves,” we are best served by taking the high ground. But when a Megyn McCain says you belong to a cult and calls the most honest and unimpeachable presidential candidate to run in my lifetime a “cult leader,” it’s best to just ignore the insanity.

But when that message comes from those in the “liberal” media (hahahaha) from those ostensibly on the same time, you know we’ve fallen through the rabbit hole.

So today, I aired my 2014 interview with Rev. Dr. William Barber, founder of the Moral Mondays movement who intones, “Forward together, not one step back.” Food for thought!

Today on the show, I was joined by every-other-Thursday guest Harvey J. Kaye, author of The Fight for the Four Freedoms: What Made FDR and the Greatest Generation Truly Great and my favorite new columnist, Seth Abramson.  

Find Seth’s recent columns here… but be sure to read the two newest ones: “Establishment Candidate Wins Home State” and “The Case for an Open Democratic Convention”

We’ll wrap up the week tomorrow with Ari Rabin-Havt and Robert Platshorn too, radio or not…
