As Bernie Sanders gears up for a 2nd presidential run (yay #Bernie2020) Twitter is awash with folks who create a mess, point to mess, & say see, we can’t have messes.

We mean the troll army of horrible David Brock’s Shareblue Media.

Here’s a 19 thread tweet for #SOTU19 /1
Who’s David Brock?

Brock’s a self-described “witting cog in the Republican sleaze machine.”

He coined ‘Anita Hill is a little bit slutty, a little bit nutty.’

He wrote The Real Anita Hill, which he freely admits was not so much a book but a character assassination of lies. /2
Bernie Sanders accurately refers to David Brock as scum of the earth. /3

We ❤️ Bernie.

Happy Monday! Let’s kick it off w/a Bernie Sanders accomplished a bunch list!

We see folks parroting old smears spread by that nasty Super Pac, saying the Bern achieved nada bc he’s an uncompromising ideologue who doesn’t know how to get things done./1

Bernie’s in the midst of a distinguished career as a social justice activist & elected official. He’s been a mayor, member of Congress, and a senator.

Bernie’s life has been honed by decades of hard work as a public servant on behalf of poor & middle class Americans. /2
Bernie ran for president-without taking Wall Street $, corporate $, or having a Super Pac for unlimited dinero.

He’s had the integrity to live his life according to progressive values. He’s never shilled for big banks & corporations. That’s quite an accomplishment in DC./3

I’ve been to 8 Bernie rallies, a Town Hall, + his Bday party. At all 8 rallies, regardless of the state, there were people standing bc of filled capacity + an overflow line outside. He always spoke to the overflow 1st. He said he didn’t feel it was right to go + not see a speech.
He has stood on a box, an amp, and a truck bed to do the impromptu overflow speeches. We would go 6 hrs early + there was already a line wrapped around the building. 4 of these rallies were AFTER the convention. It didn’t matter to us. He’s still the one who fights tooth and nail
For us each day. The Town Hall was in Burlington, VT + as always, the seats were filled + we needed to stand. Even in his home town. You want to beat trump? Show me someone else who can still rally people like that, after 3 years. #RunBernieRun

In a stunning upset in 1981, @SenSanders won the mayoral race in Burlington, Vermont’s largest city. He shocked the city’s political establishment by defeating a six-term, local machine mayor. Burlington is now reported to be one of the most livable cities in the nation.
In 1984, Mayor @SenSanders established the Burlington Community Land Trust - the 1st municipal housing land-trust in the country for affordable housing. The project became a model emulated throughout the world. It later won an award from HUD.
