Ms. Williamson told the audience they had been “trained in America over the last few decades to expect too little, to say pretty please about things that should be the right of every American.”
“Today, we’re tired of saying pretty please,” she said. “We’re going to stand up, we’re going to show up because we woke up, and we’re going to say with grace, we’re going to say with style, we’re going to say to all those who say liberty and justice cannot be done, sure as hell can be, because we’re here and we’re with Bernie!”
Mr. Sanders, appearing at the last rally of a Texas swing that took him to El Paso, San Antonio and Houston, thanked Ms. Williamson at the beginning of his remarks and echoed her words.
“The major problems we face are the limitations of our imagination and what we believe as a nation we can become,” he said.
