Thank You Bernie

Thank You Bernie

 

Sharing the bittersweet aftermath of Clinton's likely victory, Bernie supporters have flooded the hashtag #ThankYouBernie with heartfelt thanks for a remarkable campaign by a man who's already spent 50 years fighting to give a voice to the voiceless. They've thanked him for ignoring the experts, taking on the Democratic establishment, and fighting like hell; for recognizing black and poor and Palestinian lives; for newly inspiring the young and not-so-young who years ago gave up on being inspired, but who now vow to keep on fighting; for being humble, gracious, tireless despite the denial and condescension of most mainstream media; for "accepting misfits, radicals, rabble-rousers and rappers into the inner circle of your campaign"; for speaking the truth, doing what's right, staying on track, giving a damn. One meme circulating: "Do no harm, but take no shit." May he, and we, prevail.
