The Daily Bern

The Roundup is Progressive Nashville’s periodic aggregation of local, national, and international prog news and opinion worth your attention: in this edition, TN legislature shows its antigay streak, Robert Reich defends Bernie, Drumpf is the revenge of the poorly educated, and Obama proves it’s all about Wall Street — not you, the people.

We at GDPR Nashville are gobsmacked by the reaction we received to our broadcasts of Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ Nov. 19 address to students at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. The emails that came in response have raised our spirits by leaps and bounds. And the numbers of listeners to Bernie’s master class in democracy was […]

Tune in to a special edition of Grateful Dread Public Radio‘s Green Tea this morning and afternoon: We’re featuring the Nov. 19 address by presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders in its entirety, a speech largely ignored by the mainstream media. In the speech, just over an hour long, the senator takes on important issues including […]

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders today hit a home run before students at Georgetown University in Washington, DC.

I am not the only one thinking that — numerous sources are […]

The fight is on to buck the establishment and ensure the next President of the United States is of, by, and for We The People.

I am still on a high following last night’s Nashville stop of the Bernie Sanders campaign’s Tennessee State Volunteer Tour. Nearly 300 people from across the Metro area were on hand at the United Auto Workers Hall to meet with Bernie 2016 staffers and to launch a mission to recruit 5,000 Tennessee volunteers to spread […]

The great man is not making a Music City stop just yet, but his national campaign organizers make an appearance in Nashville Thursday, Oct. 22. And the following day, supporters will converge at a Democratic National Committee Nashville event. Tennessee 4 Bernie announced this weekend that members of Bernie Sanders’ national campaign team will host a […]

The crowd at the Oct. 13 Democratic debate party held at East Nashville’s Lipstick Lounge whooped and cheered for Bernie Sanders’ performance. (Organizer Lori, pictured at right, was among the Berners. She did a super job!)  I think Bernie did a great job communicating his message and distinguishing himself from the other four candidates on […]
