A group of left-wing black activists fired off an angry letter to Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, accusing his supporters of hurling “racist threats” at them after the black-centric Working Families Party endorsed Bernie’s rival, Elizabeth Warren, for president.
The letter was signed by dozens of leftist black leaders, including Black Lives Matter co-founders Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza.
The group claimed that people affiliated with the Working Families Party “are being threatened on a daily basis, by self-identified Sanders supporters, with hateful, violent and racist threats. ‘Uncle Tom.’ ‘Slave.’ ‘[C-word].'”
The letter continues:
“The virulent, racist attacks on these leaders are unacceptable and dangerous. What do we do when racism and sexism is present in progressive movements? What is the prospect of strengthening democracy when old habits just won’t die?
Online attacks, threats and smears against Black leaders are unacceptable — especially when there is so much at stake for our movements. While we punch horizontally, those who have real power over our lives take advantage of our disintegration and our disorganization. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and perhaps a number of other candidates would be much better than what we’ve got now. And that is the real fight ahead of us.
We refuse to concede to white terror from the Left as well as the Right. We can argue about the differences between Sanders and Warren, but not if we can’t be distinguished from our real opposition.”
So let’s get this straight: The Left is continuing to implode — this time is accusing each other of being racist and sexist. Keep in mind that the Left constantly plays the Race Card on the Right.
Senator Sanders responded to the uproar on Twitter, saying he condemns all racism and bullying.
This campaign condemns racist bullying and harassment of any kind, in any space. We are building a multiracial movement for justice — that’s how we win the White House.

This latest episode spotlights the ongoing civil war raging within the Democratic Party.
The party is being splintered by the far-left faction of socialists like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and the newbie Squad (comprised of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley).
On the other side are “moderate, centrist” Democrats like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. While Pelosi is the leader of the Democratic Party, her stewardship is being challenged on a daily basis by upstarts like AOC.
As BizPac Review reported, Ocasio-Cortez played the Race Card on Pelosi in April during a catfight to determine who is the Queen Bee in today’s flailing Democratic Party.
Ocasio-Cortez suggested that Pelosi was racist because she criticized the far-left Squad for voting against House Democrats, who passed a $4.5 billion aid bill to feed, house, and educate illegal aliens.
Let that sink in: The far-left quartet of minority newbs voted to not give aid to Latino illegal aliens who snuck across the U.S. border. But AOC claimed that Pelosi — who urged her party to support the bill — was racist.
Nancy Pelosi said the four rogue rookies may be popular on Twitter, but that doesn’t mean anything in real life (which is within the walls of Congress).
Pelosi quipped: “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following [within the Democratic Party]. They’re four people — and that’s how many votes they got.”
Pelosi continued: “If the left doesn’t think I’m left enough, so be it…We have to have a solution, not just a Twitter fight. While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House.”
