In America, People of Color Have the Right to Support and Vote for Bernie Sanders!

The "news" pundits sway the public's opinion one way or the other.

At Comcast-owned MSNBC, host of Hardball, Chris Matthews, shares with his viewers a vision of a Bernie Sanders presidency: Picture executions in the park, my friends! Sanders' supports executing Americans! This might happen to him, Chris Matthews! To You!

On February 12, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow begins with a segment on journalist Marsha Gessen's "Autocracy: Rules for Survival," published in the New York Review of Books just days after the 2016 presidential election. Maddow reviews some of the rules before moving to historian Timothy Snyder's On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century, 2017.

Amy Klobuchar will be on the show, momentarily .

What?

Maddow calls our attention to the front page of a number of national as well as local newspapers. She makes sure to point to the colorful photos of Bernie Sanders flanked by supporters and equally placed headlines above or below or two the side of him.

Four prosecutors resign in the Roger Stone case.

At the New York Times : "Sanders Is Winner in New Hampshire," and "Justice Dept. Acts to Ease Sentence For A Trump Ally."

"Rule of law," says Maddow. "Rule of law in danger."

Okay . And what?

If Bernie Sanders' supporters expect to hear anything about the victory the night before in New Hampshire, then they were disappointed. Maddow doesn't have an analysis about what the American public are committing to when casting a majority of their votes for the socialist.

Rule of Law, and now Amy Klobuchar!

The NAACP in Minneapolis and Black Lives Matter Twin City are calling on Amy Klobuchar to step down from the race for presidency because, as a county attorney in Minnesota, Klobuchar pursued the conviction and subsequent incarceration of Myon Burrell, a 16-year teenager at the time. According to the Associated Press, Klobuchar mishandled the case against Burrell, serving a life sentence for the 2002 muder of 11-year of Tyesha Edwards. Burrell has maintained his innocence, and former witnesses have recanted their testimony against him.

Klobuchar's ca mpaign uses her prosecution of Burrell to call attention to just how tough she is on crime. Just as was a tough as the people billionaire candidate from New York, Mike Bloomberg, caught on tape talking about where are the crime in America is located. Wink, wink! And categorizing "the vast majority" of murders and their victims, "fit one M.O." Male, minorities. Fifteen to twenty year s old.

Yes, America?

I wonder if Klobuchar will be tough on crime when it comes to corporate criminals?
