CPR News Interview: Dilma Rousseff and Sanders Supporters Ending the Democratic Party

Today I spoke to Don DeBar on Community Public Radio news. The first few minutes has reports on the right wing ouster of Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff and the U.S. unilateral withdrawal from missile treaty with Russia. I start at about 12 minutes to discuss my latest Black Agenda Report column. What should Bernie Sanders supporters do if Hillary Clinton wins the nomination? Simple. Don't vote for her. They have a chance to be the revolutionaries they claimed to be. They can end the ruse of democrats posing as progressives.

Feel the Bern! (For real.)

How Will the Left Vote in the 2016 Presidential Election?

On April 26 I spoke at a forum sponsored by Socialist Action. How will the left vote in the 2016 presidential election? People will make a variety of choices, but none of those should include the democratic party. More importantly, we need to talk about what it means to be on the left. The word is not synonymous with the democratic party.
