If you are wanting to get live of the crowds right now, Global News has a livestream too:

Benny

While the crowd waits for the first speakers, “America” is being played. The song,not the video.

polarbear4

I thought it was supposed to start at 8–haha–must have been a tweet from someone volunteering. I was worried he was keeping everyone waiting.

Benny

Now they are playing “Disco Inferno” which has the lyrics, Bern Baby Bern!

polarbear4

This has already happened, right?

Benny

CNN is airing some of the rally live. MSDLC…not so much.

polarbear4

VP Nina! Woo hoo! Your home grown senator has shown throughout his life, his measure….

Benny

Nina’s got the crowd fired up!

polarbear4

Oh i’m so glad Shaun is for Bernie!

Benny

Awesome!!!

Benny

Love it that Shaun is telling Bernie’s Chicago story. Most of it is from his article last year.

Bernie came out against apartheid in South Africa before it was popular to do so, and now that same thread is running with the Palestinian people.

Benny

And how Bernie stood with Erica Garner.

I miss her.

If a bird lands on his podium again during this campaign its a sign we best not ignore.

WindDancer13

Like the person who said that the bird thing was a staged trick? Some people have no soul.

WindDancer13

Four streams open at 12:45:
Global Network 2,111 viewers
WaPo 9,022 viewers
Secret Media Network 122 viewers
Bernie Sanders channel 14,361 viewers

No telling how many are watching on other channels or will watch later on YouTube through various sources. Something to keep an eye out for when MSM says only 122 listened.

Benny

And no telling how many on C-SPAN 3

WindDancer13

I don’t have C-Span 3 or I would open that one also. I am “liking” them all just for carrying the rally.

polarbear4

c-span seems to be playing it way late.

WindDancer13

I don’t know how it works, but my cable sub does not include C-Span 3. I think I do have the regular C-Span and maybe 2 though.

polarbear4

I’m just on teh intertubes. :O)

WindDancer13

Lol, so am I. However, my cable still restricts what is available for me to watch. I only have the basic sub so I could get a better price on my Internet cost.

Benny

Me too, but for some reason they opened the tubes on this particular broadcast.

CNN Headline has been showing it uninterrupted since Senator Sanders got on stage.

polarbear4

Yay.

WindDancer13

Thanks! Found it…Now have CNN and Bernie channel in stereo. Lol

polarbear4

Yeah, prolly good to let cnn know we’re watching. my page is “expiring” in 41 seconds tho (cnn). s’ok.

WindDancer13

Yes, I just got cut off from that feed also. So, they don’t really want us to hear Bernie, do they?

OzoneTom

I am watching on cable (pet-sitting for people who have that) so watching on CNN. I’ve heard that MSNBC is showing it on cable as well.

Streaming on YT WaPo channel has had no interruption: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XUeFu_wkok

I was shocked that they carried it uninterrupted and didn’t go to the Trumpcorp rally

Benny

Bernie is electric!

Bernie Sanders kicks off 2020 campaign with rally in his native Brooklyn

Hundreds of hardcore Bernie Sanders supporters braved the snow in Brooklyn Saturday to hear the presidential hopeful kick off his 2020 campaign.

The Vermont senator headed to Brooklyn College to host a rally, which was scheduled to start at 11:30 a.m. ET., during a winter snowstorm in his native New York.

Armored with snow boots and hats while clutching coffee and signs like “Hindsight is 2020,” Sanders stalwarts lined the surrounding blocks hours ahead of the event, while a reggae band played live.

“He’s fighting against the billionaire class. I think we need a revolution of working people to take power back from the financial oligarchy that is really running this country right now,” supporter Alan Akrivos told ABC News before the rally, adding that he liked that Sanders’ campaign did not take money from corporations or big oil companies.

As he did in the 2016 campaign, Sanders says he will run a grassroots campaign. His supporters donated $6 million in donations within 24 hours of his 2020 campaign announcement.

“It’ll be stronger, it will be involving more people, it will be more diverse,” Sanders said on ABC’s “The View” on Friday.

Hundreds? Quad is full.

BTW, that looks like “plaid shirt guy” behind Senator Sanders to the left!

Benny

No one has talked about the prison industrial complex system when it comes to criminal justice system. No more private prisons, no more profiting from prisoners, no more incarcerations of poor people because they cannot afford cash bail.

Good to hear Bernie speaking about his own history. He isn’t too inclined to toot his own horn, but it is important for people to understand where he comes from.

Benny

polarbear4

we have an enormous amount of work ahead of us. And we’re here for it!

polarbear4

“if we stand together, believing in love and compassion….”

polarbear4

Too short!

Trump is talking about that at CPAC. What a contrast.

Benny
WindDancer13

The Bernie Sanders channel (shows 54,606 views) has the whole video up already, and the trolls are out in the comment section.

Benny

WindDancer13

Did he really move further left, or are we just listening better?

first estimate between 10 and 20k

polarbear4

OK. so keeping rally commentary here.

I often watch Lawrence and have been ridiculed for watching anything MSNBC, as if being close-minded is a good thing. Lawrence has quite a few really good, thoughtful pieces. That does not mean that I do or have to always agree with him or any others who I listen to.

The struggles Bernie Sanders engages in and values he espouses can be traced back to his experiences in Brooklyn. Sanders only attended Brooklyn College for one year, leaving home for the University of Chicago after his mother died. But he’s been a champion of the free college education he received there and has featured it in his 2016 and 2020 platforms. Since the 1970s, New York and its university system have retreated from their promise to provide free higher education and the path to cultural, educational, and career advancement. Sanders will no doubt remind the city of its better self.

Jews have no monopoly on the theory and practice of radicalism and social justice. Think of the progressive Baptist tradition, which saw social justice and human liberation as a mandate of the Gospel, and helped shape the vision of Martin Luther King Jr; the liberation theology of Archbishop Oscar Romero and the socialism of Dorothy Day’s Catholic Worker movement; the Islamic Zakat traditions concerned with equitable distribution of wealth and the general good. Each exists and often combines with its philosophical and political neighbors.

Today, we take time to honor the Jewish style and strain of progressive thought that permeated New York in the first two-thirds of the twentieth century and that inspired the generous political vision of Bernie Sanders, his campaign and the revolution rising around it.

Good. I wanted to know how he did. Outside, In the cold & snow. V. Kamala Harris in LA. Ny Times reports that *her campaign* reported over 20,000.

polarbear4

Ended up at <200k on FB. Have to switch to phone for link.

Benny

Which is good for her, considering it was a balmy 65 degrees and sunny. Bernie has true grit just as his supporters do!

Wow, did New York State move up the registration deadline again? That’s crazy to have to register by May 19th (of this year)!
