Bernie Sanders had a rough time at the She The People Forum on Wednesday on April 25, 2019.
During this discussion, Sanders was asked how he would battle “white supremacy”.
Host Aimee Allison specifically pressed Sanders on his devotion to the African American community.
The Washington Examiner detailed how Sanders’ talk was met with hostility from the audience when he mentioned his presence at the March on Washington:
He mentioned he was present during the historic March on Washington in 1963 with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., which prompted members of the audience to groan. According to Fox News, someone shouted from the audience “We know!
Sanders continued reaffirming his civil rights credentials by citing his involvement in Jesse Jackson’s 1988 presidential campaign.
“As somebody who actively supported Jesse Jackson’s campaign, as one of the few white elected officials to do so in ’88, I have dedicated my life to the fight against racism, and sexism, and discrimination of all forms.”
In the middle of the audience’s heckling, Sanders declared President Donald Trump is the “most dangerous president” in modern history and called for Democrats to be united in 2020.
Co-Host Joy Reid then asked Sanders how his campaign would benefit black women, which Sanders responded with “Black women will be an integral part of what our campaign, and what our administration is about. Okay?”
He would then be cut off by hecklers in the audience who were not satisfied with his responses.
Despite making mass incarceration a major plank of his 2020 run, Sanders has had trouble gaining the confidence of the African American base of the Democratic Party.
BLP covered how Sanders went as far as to suggest that felons like the Boston Marathon bomber should be allowed to vote.
In the modern-day Democratic Party, which is consumed with identity politics, Sanders might struggle to come out on top during the 2020 Democratic Party primaries.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
