In this episode of The Humanist Report we’ll give you a bit of good news for once: progressives are starting to win. Not only were we able to influence the DNC to drastically reduce the power of superdelegates, but we’ve now successfully convinced a majority of Republicans that Medicare for All is the right option when it comes to American healthcare—but that’s not all we’ll talk about on this show! Additionally, we’ll take a steaming dump on Trump for loosening restrictions on the rules of engagement in Yemen, discuss Bernie Sanders’ plan to force multinational corporations off of welfare, look at John McCain’s legacy, Bill Maher’s sucking up to the establishment, Verizon’s recent net neutrality violation, and more! Enjoy the program!

All they're going to do is flood the Democratic race with several corporate Dems in order to make it impossible for Bernie or any other Progressive to win a majority. Or they will select people such as Biden and Elizabeth Warren to split the votes so that a first round Winner's will not be clear opening the convention for a second round KO

Not bad at all. I bet it took some practising.

arnold trogman · September 4, 2018 at 10:08 pm

Support us by shopping on Amazon?? huh.. talk about cognitive dissonance!

Drew Taylor · September 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

Bottom line for DNC/Bernie/Nina Turner story: They need to shit or get off the pot. Either start a Progressive Party before the midterms, or don't bitch when the DNC fucks you over again in 2020.

Tony Gimenez · September 4, 2018 at 10:41 pm
