|Jill Stein arrested for demanding access to mass media to promote her campaign for Presidential nominee for Green Party. Sanders the Democrat says nothing.|
A question for all Sanders supporters and this includes the SA the CWI section in the US. Jill Stein has just been arrested for the second time for insisting on her right to have access to the mass capitalist media to take part in the Presidential candidate debates here in the US. This is censorship and repression. I have not heard a word from Sanders on this issue. He should be opposing this censorship and repression. If he does not do so he is a hypocrite. He on occasion says that climate change is the number one issue but here he is staying quiet when the Green Party's best known leader is arrested. Sanders poses as being honest. If he does not speak out on this he is a hypocrite. But then the more Jill Stein and the Green Party gets coverage the more votes Sanders is in danger of losing. His silence on this is like his silence on Zionism and the slaughter of the Palestinian people. Sounds like the same old dirty unprincipled politics to me.
