2020 - Bernie Sanders Says Whites Are Being Made ‘Uncomfortable’ Voting for Black Candidates

If there is one major takeaway from the Midterm elections then it is that on the Republican side those who stuck with Trump mostly won, meaning that the current US President cemented his place as the GOP candidate; whilst on the Democratic side those that went too far to the left, mostly lost.

Therefore the overly emotional reaction of far-left Democratic great Mr Bernie Sanders is at least a bit understandable, when he explained, right after the election results became clear, that he assumed that ‘white’ voters hadn’t chosen progressive candidates because of ‘perceived racism.’

Mr Sanders stated: "You know there are a lot of white folks out there who are not necessarily racist who felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African-American."

After a lot of social media backlash (from established Democrats), Mr Sanders' spokesman insisted his comments were taken out of context.

“There's no question that in Georgia and in Florida racism has reared its ugly head. And you have candidates who ran against Gillum and ran against Stacey Abrams who were racist and were doing everything they could to try to play whites against blacks," he said. "And that is an outrage, and we have got to continue doing everything that we can to fight all forms of racism."

The 2016 hopeful for the Democratic nomination for President was commenting on the fact that his favorite candidates running on celebrity-endorsed progressive platforms didn’t get there: Mr Andrew Gillum in Florida, Ms Stacey Abrams in Georgia and Mr Beto O’Rourke in Texas.

Mr Andrew Gillum, who narrowly lost in Florida to a Trump-supporting Republican, had endorsed a $15 minimum wage, universal healthcare and wanted to reform immigration enforcement, among other measures.

He lost the state by half a percentage point only, mostly getting the younger vote. He demands a recount, which looks like a petty thing to do in the eyes of most GOP voters at this point.

Over in Georgia, Ms Stacey Abrams also hasn't conceded her race just yet (and there are controversies swirling around voting fairness in her state). She was endorsed by Oprah and expressed similar progressive sentiments.

During an interview with Rolling Stone magazine over the summer she admitted that looking for centrist votes was not a really good idea for her, saying: "I'm not going to spend a disproportionate share of our resources trying to convert Republican-leaning voters when we can invest in lifting up the voices of those who share our values."

Of course, there is more to it than this. Mr Sanders knows that given the Democratic results in the Midterms, a progressive candidate being elected as the 2020 Democrat nominee is now less likely than before as the only end result seems to be that more “Trump”-voters get riled up to go out and vote for their guy instead.
