Hillary, you have a problem. Ben Jealous — the former head of the NAACP — just endorsed Bernie Sanders:

Flashback: Remember when it was #BlackLivesMatter activists protesting against Bernie?

And now this:

Jealous will hit the campaign trail with Bernie, which is important because Hillary has a sizable lead among black voters:

Jealous can probably help Bernie counter former AG Eric Holder who is cutting ads for Hillary in S.C.:

    No wonder he’s endorsing a Socialist. He’s got the perfect last name for it………

      djm1992: Can you explain to me why so many Twitchy bloggers are suddenly using check marks and the word ‘verified’ in their avatars?
      Are fake posters really that common an occurrence on this site?

      • djm1992✓?????? ?????? ☭⁻ᴴ⁸ᴿ

        No. It comes from Twitter removing the Breitbart technology editor and blogger Milo Yiannopoulos’ account verification and “verified” badge all because he made a few uber-left SJW “feminists” haz a sad and think they were being harassed and threatened -when all he was really doing was disagreeing with them in a snarky manner. Putting a checkmark and verified in superscript text became sort of a “protest” of Twitter’s stupidity. As far as I know, people started doing it on FreedomReconnection (where I’m hanging out mostly now). Mostly it was just ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ at first, then others like myself started adding embellishments

        PS: you can use the emoji&symbols menu to insert text that is superscript for your user name in the disqus settings menu

        • san rafael blue

          Oh. Thanks for explaining. I didn’t realize that Milo’s firing had effected that many people, but apparently it has, and our ally Breitbart is called on it.

          • djm1992✓?????? ?????? ☭⁻ᴴ⁸ᴿ

            Wait, Wut?

            Brietbart fired him?!? When was this?

          • san rafael blue

            I may have used the wrong term. My impression was they altered their professional relationship with this guy. I had presumed he was their employee, but perhaps not. He simply doesn’t have access as before.

    Bold choice, bub…

    So, a very old white man represents minority concerns? Too rich, just too rich. I thought white men were hated by all liberals/progressives or is that only white men who aren’t socialists? So, when is Ben Jealous going to be called sexist for supporting Sanders? Isn’t that how liberals/progressives play the game?

    Hillary Clinton has said her firewall is the south, where she will, like many Democrats before her, count on blacks to blindly support her, and also like other Democrat politics, will quickly forget those blacks after the election is over.

    The NAACP endorsing a rich old white socialist Jewish man who comes from a state that has the 2nd smallest per capita minority population in the entire country……………….. But Ben Carson……….. he has no interest in the Black Community does he?

      You know how they think…Conservative minorities aren’t real minorities. Wasn’t it some high ranked NAACP member that referred to Tim Scott as a “white man’s puppet?”

      • Doc Farmer✔ᶜᵒᵛᶠᵉᶠᵉ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

        How they “think” – wow, we’re being generous today, aren’t we?

    • Jonas Blane ll

      Why didn’t you say anything when Black conservative Sen.Scott chose to endorse Hispanic/Irish Ted Cruz over Black conservative Dr Ben Carson?

      • Knight64

        Because it’s not the same thing.

        • Jonas Blane ll

          Actually it’s worse. People here are upset that a black organization with liberal policies won’t endorse a black conservative. However,people here aren’t upset that a Black conservative won’t endorse a fellow black conservative.
          CAN WE SAY HYPOCRITES?

          • Knight64

            You know that Senator Scott is endorsing Marco Rubio, not Cruz, right? (Of course you didn’t. You’re outraged over the wrong candidate.)
            And secondly, the lefties play the race game all the time. Except this time. Conservatives don’t see race first, so there’s no conservative “requirement” for race to endorse race like there is on the left.

          • Jonas Blane ll

            You’re giving black conservative Scott a free pass while attacking liberal Black Organization naacp

          • Knight64

            You don’t get anything right, do you?
            You said Scott endorsed Cruz, but he endorsed Rubio.
            You said I’m “attacking” (your word) NAACP, but I criticizing (my word) Ben Jealous who is hasn’t been the leader of the NAACP in years.
            And lastly, the whole point of the criticism is that Scott is not violating his principles, but Jealous is. Scott professes to be a conservative who believes like MLK that content of character trumps color of skin. So he supports someone who has similar conservative principles. Jealous, on the other hand, always has been and continues to be all about color; and stops at that one criteria. Never gets to character. And Jealous picked an old white guy to support. So, you see, Jealous is a hypocrite to his principles — but Scott is not.

        Dude, that was such a long time ago, at this point, what difference does it make?

        As if you consider Scott, Carson or Cruz to be true minorities. They are conservative after all, meaning to liberals, they aren’t real. Save your faux outrage.

    What a sick Bern on Hillary.

    Looking forward to hearing Bernie Sanders bust out his best ebonics when he addresses black groups in the south. He’s gonna have to step up his game because Hillary is awesome at pandering.

  • ClydeCrashcup

    So funny. Future convict HRC (one must hope), nabs endorsement of the first sitting Cabinet official ever to be cited for contempt of Congress, while “The Berne” gets a guy that heads an organization that has only exacerbated the racial divide so vastly expanded by BHO. Super! I will gladly donate one t-shirt each to Hill & Berne for their next, uhumm, debate:

    In other news, Ben Dover endorses Monica’s ex-boyfriend’s wife.

    Hanging out with the low information voters that protect the BLM criminal “Thugs”

  • Arkuy The Great

    The key is that Jealous is the “former” CEO of the NAACP. He is now a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. IOW, his power now comes from being a Progressive advocate, not a “colored people” advocate. The observations downthread about the straw poll do accentuate this difference.

    • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

      He’s also a Senior Partner in a Venture capitol firm. Does this mean Bernie has sold out to the Man?

  • D H

    Since the NAACP has not changed their name to remove “colored people” is society allowed to start (re) using “Colored People” and not “African Americans”?

    Or will they change to NAAAA to be politically correct?

      To ask that question is to answer it…

    Socialist Sanders endorsed by “Benjamin Todd Jealous (born January 18, 1973) is a venture capitalist,”. Yet another of the lefts highly placed tokens that pass the Paper bag test and would have passed as white in 1930.
