from Liberty Blitzkrieg:
The more Bernie Sanders rises in the polls, the more obvious it becomes that he’s being given the “Ron Paul treatment” by the Democratic Party. By that, I am referring to the way Ron Paul was ignored, derided and marginalized by the GOP establishment during his run for the Presidency in 2012.
Now it’s Mr. Sanders turn, and nowhere is this more evidenced than within the corridors of various unions.
We learn from Politico:
Top brass of the 3 million-strong National Education Association, the country’s largest union, are recommending an endorsement of Hillary Clinton, according to an email obtained by POLITICO — a move that has many state leaders and rank-and-file members planning to protest the early endorsement.
The email, sent from the union’s campaign office, states that the NEA PAC, the union’s political arm, is planning to hold an upcoming vote “recommending Hillary Clinton for the presidential primary.”
But the reaction is following a pattern that has played out in many major unions that have gone through the endorsement process this year — anger and opposition from rank-and-file members who support Sanders and want their unions to hold off on any endorsement in the primary. Many teachers protested vigorously after the American Federation of Teachers endorsed Clinton in July.
Other state leaders have expressed concern that an early endorsement does not allow members to be participants in a real debate around the issues that is still unfolding.
