  • Bernie crushed it at Fox News’ Town Hall. Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. MORE TYT:

    "Bernie Sanders’s Fox News town hall, which aired Monday night, showed that contrary to the belief of many of his detractors (and some of his supporters), the Vermont senator really does have more than one rhetorical mode.

    There was the mode he used for the town hall part, and the mode he used for the Fox News part — represented by anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, who liberally interspersed questions from the audience with questions of their own.

    When speaking directly to audience members or to the TV audience watching at home, Sanders was sincere and open. When asked about President Donald Trump, he spoke with emotion about how he hoped everyone could agree a “pathological liar” should not be president; in his closing statement, he practically begged for more comity in the country, without backing off his insistence that the rich need to do more to provide for working families."

      Isn’t it amazing how open minded conservatives are and tolerant of liberal speakers?
      I’ve never heard of conservatives rioting and trying to get liberals banned from a college campus. It’s just a totally different mindset. The western mindset.

        I believe you’re right I thought the same thing when he said Bernie is done he’s afraid of Bernie he will feel very comfortable with those young inexperienced politicians and very happy to debate Warren or Biden safe for him to beat them up

              The world loves Bernie Sanders, the only sane candidate and will help 90% of Americans yet the dumb Americans will probably get tricked by the billionaires and their media organisations.

                Young Turks, could you please tell us more about hate organizations?

                And fear-mongering tactics?

                All those times you try to condemn stupidity, yet without it, you wouldn't even have a job.

                  "shows how much I watch Fox News" um no...shows how little you prepare for your news segments. Thousands of professional journalists everyday talking about stuff they don't watch. It's part of the job or at least it used to be.

                  Also the Armenian Genocide totally happened.

                                Fox has been commandeered by the fake news people.
                                They are not pro conservative anymore.
                                When you see people with headwrap having their own show on it, you know Fox is dead to us.

                                    If Ana thinks it correct to state Turning Point is a hate organization, I have no problem identifying The Young Turks as a hate organization. After the number of years I watched TYT, I think I can produce evidence (namely their videos) to bolster my point of view.

I later find out he hates Muslims and Mexicans (don't matter if they're legal or not, he thinks they're "unsanitary") lmao. if you don't call an organization targeted at harvesting kids brainwashed into identity politics and hatred of anything that is not them a hate organization, I don't know how you'd define one lol

                                      It is also clear that many news organizations who are supposed to be progressive are hostile to Bernie.

                                      Bernie Sanders doesn't mind the tough questions. He excels at answering them. He knows what he is talking about, because he has been fighting for us for years. Your not going to phase him at all by asking him a loaded question. He has the knowledge and experience and knows how to use it.

                                      I'm in Australia, and watching this these are my thoughts. Fox want Bernie to be the nominee. Trump wants Bernie to be the nominee. I suspect they did stack the audience for him. And when the others go for their town halls, bammo.
                                      I think Bernie is fantastic, wants to lift Americans positions from second rate citizens to be able to access the normal rights that all other western country's citizens already expect, health care for all, free education. I hope he wins, or Elizabeth Warren. But I fear fox are pushing for Bernie because they believe trump will beat him vs Kamala or cory booker

                                        He is the clear front runner of the Democratic candidates. So why does Bernie have to go to Fox news for coverage? Why aren't the more liberal news agencies giving him a huge amount of free press like Trump got in 2016? Bernie is clearly ahead in the polls and the fundraising. Kamala and Cory are not even blips on the polls. None of the other candidates except Biden have near the support and Biden's support is slipping because of some of his positions and some of his actions. I hope they do push for Bernie as the nominee because they will be shocked when he beats trump soundly in the general election.

                                        @Rebekah Fehlberg Most Americans see it the other way around. They want Bernie because they know he can beat Trump. Not Harris or Booker. Both terrible candidates who the Democratic establishment will try to shove down the electorates throats again.

                                        Fox News believes that line. Hence the questioning and buzzwords intended to alienate the audience. But he definitely turned the tables on them with the town hall.

Hell, let's break out american flags and let them burn them while in prison. Oh and no more searching their cells for shanks and drugs. That's a no no.

                                            I suppose you'd like it if Bernie suggested that we added prison abolition to the democratic platform. That would be a winning issue too.

                                            @LaCroixBoi You seem to be suggesting that felons in prison have all the rights that you and I have. I thinks you need to consider the ramifications.

                                            @ArcDragoon I haven't seen anyone on this thread who has thought this through. So rather than making my defense, I'll ask a question; should convicted felons enjoy all the rights guaranteed by the constitution.

                                            Start with the 2nd amendment and you will figure this out quickly.

                                          Fox's Bernie Sanders town hall got more views than the other stations town halls put together and the stupid DNC don't want to use FOX for their democratic debates. Meanwhile CNN rigged the Clinton Sanders debate.

                                            And about Nancy Pelosi ... I am a staunch Progressive, and I don't know what Pelosi is, but I agree with her criticism of the Freshman Progressive Congresspeople. At first I was impressed as AOC did a few tweets that went national that explained progressive taxes and point out the lying and hypocrisy of Paul Ryan ... I think it was. But then they both started talking over their level of expertise and made mistakes when they should have been watching what they said. This is not a game, and these folks need to be careful to impress and inspire, not make Democrats look bad. Eventually I think most of us here want the Progressive wing to take back the whole Democratic Party, and that is not going to happen with some of the stuff these Progressives are saying.

                                            That black and white simplicity that Ana and John are talking about is why Republicans need to kill the public schools ... the 60 rebellion was all about the 50's public schools working great.

                                            The right needs to understand their own rhetoric ....

                                            There is a big difference between entrepreneurship, free enterprise, and capitialism.

                                            Capitalism is where people with capital buy us the stuff from poorer people to get rich ... it is always exactly the same, big inequality. Socialism puts people before dollars - period. Socialism balances capitalism ... socialism can coexist with entrepreneurship and free enterprise ... but in the late stages nothing can coexist with capitalism because it turns into elitism and fascism.

                                              I think it was a great idea for the Democrats to call out FOX News ... and maybe FOX let Bernie supporters into that audience to validate that so they can mess with later debates on FOX. It is very easy to turn on Bernie and start throwing communist rhetoric and insults at him ... they can do that any time. He was lucky but he was also really well prepared and thinking very clearly on his feet in that Town Hall. Bernie kicked-ass on FOX.

                                                Bernie answered the Ilhan Omar question perfectly ... but it still does not make me like or support Omar. She does not appear to know what she is doing that everything she says is some big controversial deal. She is not elected to push Islam in everyone's faces, or to attack Israel, she is there to represent her constituents. I would have voted for her as the Progressive candidate, but I would not be happy about all this stuff she is sidelining and how she is making Democrats have to stick their necks out to support her which makes them look bad to many people.
