Okay, here's #MyBernieStory:
I went to college because you HAD to have a degree to make it in the world. $80k later, I have to live with my Mom, because my $1,200 rent payment is going to my loans instead. I can't default because my Mom co-signed. I WILL NOT destroy her credit!(1
...Plus it's impossible to declare bancruptcy anyways. I've worked for a non-profit for ~8 years hoping to get some of my loans forgiven. Turns out 99% who try that fail. So, with interest rates at 14% and ALWAYS rising, I will NEVER pay them off. (2
And that's not for lack of trying. I work a full time job on weekdays, cater as a 2nd on weekends and housesit for all my coworkers and friends consistently for extra cash in my "spare time." I am using my grandparents old car (blessed) & would be completely HOSED without it. (3

This is Day 2 of my mission to convince Bernie supporters of why an Andrew Yang presidency would be better for them and their families’ wellbeing. Yesterday, I spoke about financial security. Today, I will go at length about education [Thread]
Let’s start by acknowledging the extent of both candidates’ education plans. Bernie’s publicly known plans for education are to introduce universal pre-k, tax-payer funded tuition for public universities, cancelling all student debt, and throwing wads of cash at the k-12 system
Andrew also supports universal pre-K, but is ardently against free college. Instead, he opts to give everyone a Universal Basic Income, drastically lower the cost of college of those who want to go, cancel much of the student debt, and make structural change to the k-12 system

Let's see which retweet bots are super excited about the third Democratic presidential debate. #ThursdayThoughts

@ZellaQuixote A duo of extremely similar real estate bots (@RealtorFairfax and @FairfaxVAAgent) were the first two automated accounts to retweet the preceding tweet. Based on a brief jaunt through their timelines, they seem more focused on retweeting political hashtags than real estate.
@ZellaQuixote @RealtorFairfax @FairfaxVAAgent The third bot retweet comes to us courtesy of @BernieBot_2020, which retweets various Sanders-related hashtags (#Bernie2020, #FeelTheBern, #NotMeUS, and #NoMiddleGround.) We've run across it before.

I'm going to quote something I saw on Reddit about Yang's UBI & put it into a Twitter thread.

This way I can bookmark it and use @threadreaderapp to unroll it, not to mention make reference use of it.

So away we go!
#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NotMeUs
Here is the question posted on the Reddit forum "SandersForPresident".
#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NotMeUs
Answer --

Well first of all, Yang argued with Bernie. Bernie was just answering a question asked during an interview. First off let's talk about the pitfalls of Yang's vision for UBI and how that would impact us. Yang wants to implement UBI

OK...so, I just did this an hour ago.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen....I am now fully #Berned.

(cc: @BernieSanders, @GabbyQuinteros)
@BernieSanders @GabbyQuinteros How did I get to the point of finally pulling the trigger for the senior Senator from Vermont?

Two years of progress by him, and one night of being pushed over the cliff by his detractors.

An explanation follows.
@BernieSanders @GabbyQuinteros For the past 3 years, I've been more of an understanding critic of Senator Sanders from the Indy Left. There were things that I liked from him, like his economic populism and his legacy of being a social progressive...

I usually don't play the veteran card, but I'm gonna play it here. #MyBernieStory has to do with why I joined the USAF. I want to live in a country where the oath I took means something, that rights for all are guaranteed,
that we are self governing, and that our elected officials aren't bought by lobbyists or corporations. I want our tax dollars to fund programs that benefit the masses, not fund tax cuts for the billionaires.
As a disabled veteran with a 100% rating, I am guaranteed not single payer but universal health care and a free education. I believe that if the government can manage that for me, it can manage it for all.

Fam, we need to have a talk about Bernie & Tulsi.
I realize this may lose me a few followers but it must be said.

Can we all just please knock off the bullshit about Bernie & Tulsi already, please? They're friends and allies. Now some of you may not like that.
#Bernie2020 /1
The reality is Tulsi & Bernie have worked together in the past and once Tulsi drops out, she will be giving Bernie her delegates.

Some of you seem to be down in a hole with this & can't see the forest through the trees. #Bernie2020 /2
This is a PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, not a dick measuring contest between Tulsi & Bernie. Those of you trashing Tulsi are actually hurting Bernie & his campaign. You need to keep your eyes on the prize here. We need allies, we need votes in the general! #Bernie2020 /3

All of the things that Russia didn't make @KamalaHarris do...

A thread:
Harris talks the talk, but why does her record speak to terrible policies that disproportionately affected people of color and poor folks?

Why did she fight to keep civil asset forfieture in place?
Why did she neglect to prosecute Treasury Sec Steve Mnuchin, during the foreclosure crisis, when he was running OneWest and was responsible for thousands losing their homes due to shady practices? (He's our damn Treasury Secretary, now, ffs)
Why didn't she course correct when she saw that her truancy efforts were causing harm, to mostly minority women?

Why did she fight so hard to keep wrongful convictions in place?

How many times has she flip-flopped in the past few weeks?

We started looking at automated activity (and potentially other aspects of) tweets containing various #<candidate first or last name>2020 hashtags (e.g., #Warren2020, #Kamala2020, #Bernie2020, etc.) We examined tweets from Jan 1st - July 3rd, 2019.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
Looking more closely at the 2020 hashtags that have both a significant percentage (we used 10% as a cutoff, 3%-ish is average) of automated activity and at least 1000 tweets, we see sizable volume for tweets posted via VK (Russian Facebook-esque social network.) What's the deal?
The VK activity in the 2020 hashtags comes from 21 very similarly-named accounts. Account names are the display name with "Im" prepended (e.g., "Alberta Swift" = "@ImAlbertaSwift.) All tweets were posted via VK, and none tweeted before 2018 (despite some being created in 2015.)

Why I support bernie Sanders as an Iraqi : I grew up in a war torn country all my life . I started being conscious to the world with the invasion of my country in 2003. I had my childhood upbringing during the 2007 civil war. And my teenage years during ISIS rising in 2014 1/
During those years there’s one constant theme, Confusion. I was a young kid who couldn’t understand anything and why all of these things happened. During ISIS war I had a deep depression because I was confused about life and my purpose in it 2/
Seeing Isis flags couple 100s of meters away from me shook me to my core. The stories of fleeing families from areas controlled by Isis and the genocide of over 2000 cadet in speicher camp. Almost losing my brother and father in 2 bombs attack on the Masjid near our home 3/

Thread regarding #Sanders2020

1. Folks think Bernie was selfish for running in '16. I'm NOT one of them. I think he knew the American people weren't going to vote for HRC, & understood clearly the threat that Trump was to this country & the world; & wanted to inspire us.
2. For 4 decades Bernie's message has been consistent. He has ALWAYS been #ForThePeople. He has NEVER sold out. Is he perfect? No, there is no perfect human being, but he's definitely the best we have in the field without question.
3. I think Bernie looked at his options & did an unselfish thing. I think it's why the 2016 campaign struggled. This time around I am prouder than ever to support his campaign & actually volunteering. I don't know how safe our elections are, if they'll cheat, but I have to try.

The brilliance of this Bernie Sanders ad is it is a general election ad. Trump’s the target. Team Bernie is reassuring Democratic primary voters he has what it takes to go one-on-one with Trump. It addresses the Jim Messina objections. #NotMeUs #NotMeUs
Jim Messina: “Bernie can’t beat Donald Trump.”
Team #FeelTheBern: “Oh yeah? Look at this.”
Bernie is actually making a policy proposal of tying Federal Contracts to corporation’s treatment of workers. Details are (understandably) vague on how to execute it but Sanders proposes leveraging state’s power of the purse on corporations. #NotMeUs cc: @matthewstoller

Have you written your letter of support for Bernie Sanders? I'll be posting mine soon! Maybe they will publish one of ours! #ShareTheBern amp.usatoday.com/amp/3403474002…
Senator Bernie Sanders stands out among all the Parties! He has consistently been on the People's side. Despite being cheated in 2016, he exhibits strong leadership and a conviction to help our Country become healthy, environmentally secure, and financially stable. (1, continued)
His vision for the United States is shared by hard working Americans. He has seen/worked around the Machine, he stands strong against the Man in Office, and most importantly... He listens to us. (2, end)

Ok.. Thread on voting because the establishment voters ain't listening.

1) Get a Fμ©KING CLUE Dem #BlueWave folks: We are PROGRESSIVES

If you have Questions about what that means in practice, please see my pinned.

We DO NOT operate on your #CultOfPersonality crap.
Full Stop
We don't operate on #CultOfPersonality BECAUSE OF OBAMA Cosplaying a progressive like a Furry in Las Vegas and then 109% #Ratfuxing us ALL on every level to service bribers at OUR expense.
This, and the utter disgust generated by @BarackObama @HillaryClinton and their decades of duplicitous lies is also how Trump got into office
Y'ALL think because you choose 2 make excuses we should as well

It doesn't work that way w Progressives

Thread.
Hi, guys, IDK if anyone is bothered by the February 20th Teen Vogue confession from the genre" I once was for Bernie, but never more..." but in case you are I prepared an analysis showing this is a professional hit job. 1/?
She starts by saying she never heard of Bernie before. That's not unusual in itself, but later she mentions Bernie's "alignment with socialist values" as the main attraction. So we are to believe she is a young socialist but never heard of most progressive senator in the US. 2/?
Notice the use of the words "I was hooked." This is 100% Brock territory.
According to many dictionary definitions hooked means: "addicted"" unable to stop taking a drug" or "obsessed."
Her support was not rational, she says. 3/?

This is going to be a big, ongoing thread of the #BernieHitParade! This is what we're up against. A massive, well funded & oiled machine. They'll say anything to tear Bernie, and us, down. We've got news for them: we're #NotGoingDown!

#BernieRR #Bernie2020 #NotMeUs
#BernieHitParade receipts:

@jmartNYT, who wrote the "Holding onto support may be difficult for Bernie" article, was outed by @Forbes is 16 as disguising political commentary as news. He called Bernie "pungent" when describing him at a debate. #BernieRR

@ed_kilgore, author of the "Bernie has lost his Mojo" piece is part of the DLC/Third Way machine fighting us.

It's almost 2019, & you know what that means, Fam. Get ready for a literal fight for our lives.

We must fight misinformation with truth. We must join together to win the narrative against the propaganda of the establishment. We must claw our way to progress.

Join us #Bernie20RR
This account will also be sharing accurate information about 2020 challengers. As soon as candidates start announcing, we're a go.

If the establishment swipes at Bernie inaccurately before then, we fight back. We absolutely must coalesce our messaging to have a bigger impact.

A Thread⤵️Breaking Down A Hit Piece on Our Revolution
Well, no mincing words, Dovere gets right into it. Problem is, not amplifying its candidates seems a HUGE projection. The DCCC and DNC has been horrible to their candidates. For example what they did to Laura Moser was horrible.
Where are these Sanders supporters? Once again this seems like a huge projection. And what Sanders has done to organize the left is more than anyone has in a long time.

1 like = ...1 like. I don't have time for more 😂

Let's kick it off with this that @LumpyLouish just made me tonight for #NeolibAMovie!

#FieldOfDaounuts 😂😂😂

I'm ded.

#BringOutYerMemes!
1 RT

This never fails to crack me up 😂

*Reportedly* taken at #DNCConvention16 where the #TrollKing was chased down the hall!

I have a special loathing for @davidbrockdc. He deserves all the mocking we can throw at him.
2:

Support for monopolies & worker exploiters by "The Resistance" has been grotesque.

Mock them into oblivion.
