I do like some of what you write here, but this statement is pretty stupid imo. Bernie Sanders has more or less had the same message since the 70s. :!:
If Millenials finally feel they have a candidate that they feel understand the issues young ppl go through, and will participate in the election (for a change), I think that is a good thing.

It's pretty easy to think someone "understands" your problems when he's offering you tens of thousands of dollars if you vote for him.

I fail to see what it matters what someone believed in 1970. What matters is how they'll vote today and for the president most importantly, what kind of justice will he appoint to the supreme court.

He's saying millennials like Bernie because he offers them financial security. Which, sure, that makes sense.

Someone who understands their problems would certainly do this. But, one would also do it if one wants their votes. His point seems to be that in Bernie's case it's just about the votes, despite Bernie having fought for financial and social equality basically his entire life. But that doesn't fit his narrative, so we are to ignore that.

He has like 30% name recognition, likely even less with black voters, but yeah that is worrying. It's probably his "all lives matter" comment

Judging by this Politico piece, his homosexuality probably plays a part, too.

Https://www.politico.com/story/2019/05/ ... rs-1322396

Joe Darby, a prominent pastor in Charleston, S.C., was discussing the Democratic presidential field with fellow clergymen when Pete Buttigieg’s name came up. A fellow pastor quickly interjected.

“Isn’t that the dude who kissed his husband on TV?” the person asked skeptically, according to Darby.

The exchange highlights a major obstacle for Buttigieg, who’s vaulted into the top tier of Democratic candidates without gaining traction among African Americans, according to recent surveys of national and South Carolina Democrats. But as the mayor of South Bend, Ind., devotes more effort to campaigning for black votes in the South and elsewhere, he will have to break down some resistance over his sexual orientation, particularly among older voters, according to interviews with more than a dozen African American activists, political strategists and clergy, as well as a review of public polling. ...

“He’s white, male and gay, all three of those things are going to create obstacles for various communities — specifically, I think, the white and the gay, for the black community, are definitely going to be obstacles for him,” said Harrison Guy, a Houston-based choreographer and LGBTQ activist who led the discussion with the mayor. “He’s very aware of that.” ...

“For older African-American voters, yes, it may be an issue, and with older clergy, it may also be an obstacle. That’s also true for older, white, working-class voters, too,” said one national Democratic strategist, granted anonymity to discuss the issue candidly.

Hm, so why do the media promote so many black people if they are generally homophobes? Typically the media steer clear of promoting people who don't agree with their typically progressive agendas.
Do they get a free pass on this?

The type of people who get media coverage are politicians, athletes etc and they're either not homophobic or not stupid enough to be publicly homophobic. Those who do get roasted. Tim Hardaway isn't in the hall of fame partially because he was incredibly homophobic in his younger years.

My point is just that Sanders seems to just be "You can't afford X, so I'll give you X." While Warren seems capable of a more in depth analysis of social problems. She even wrote a book about the problems two-income families have. She doesn't seem like the drones and politicians who don't seem to have healthy, communitarian motives behind their Progressivism.

I do not think we are on the same side, on most issues, when it comes to 2020 candidates. Anyway, that was not the point. We should try to play some games, sometime, cos it seems we are on the same side of noobishness when playing aoe3 :P

I disagree with you, cos as far as I have seen and heard, every proposal Sanders have suggested, he has also spoken on how to fund it. He even wrote a book ;)
