Nearly 3,000 people lined the sidewalks around the Twin Arrows Casino in Flagstaff on Thursday to hear what Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders had to say. With a capacity of only 900 people in the main ballroom, many Bernie supporters only made it as far as the casino lobby where they listened to the senator from Vermont’s speech over speakers.

The “A Future to Believe In” rally hit many of the same talking points Sanders has been hammering home throughout his campaign. Sanders talked about vote suppression and how the U.S has the lowest voter turnout of any county on earth, the “rigged economy” with the top 1/10th of 1% having as much wealth as the bottom 90%, and his plans to create tuition free public colleges and universities, a universal healthcare system, and raise the minimum wage to $15 a hour. But what made this rally different from others Sanders has hosted was the focus on Native American issues.

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye opened the rally with a speech and acknowledged that the senator was the first candidate to come to the Navajo Nation,

“(Sanders) is the very first presidential candidate to step foot on our sacred land. No other candidate has done this ever. That says a lot about this presidential candidate to come and stand on Indian land, in Indian country.”


Damn, the first candidate ever to visit the Navajo nation? Bernie appeals to everyone, especially the minorities. The only people he doesn't appeal to are conservatives, and a few other political camps. I love that he is talking about how no one votes and is doing very well with one particular group that usually never votes, the youth vote. Bernie is destroying Trump and Clinton combined with the youth (30 & under) and if they continue to show up they just may make a difference for him. Now he's snatching up the Native American vote, something no candidates ever do.

Bernie, you sly dog you!

It's great that Sanders went to the Native Americans, the first presidential candidate to go to Navajo's sacred land! Go Bernie!

A rally of 14, 000 in SLC Utah, much bigger than Trumps rally!

And he is to busy campaigning to go to the AIPAC convention, Clinton, Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich will be there groveling for more of that lobbyist PAC money.

I find myself impressed with the enthusiasm of the "Bernouts". Even though he has already lost the Democratic nomination to Hilary, you are able to deceive yourselves into thinking he is still in the race.

Mmmmm I can almost taste your hate.

Don't be fooled, at the moment clearly things are in Hillary's favor but there's still plenty of people left yet to vote and what that does is leave a little something for Bernie supporters, something you may not be familiar with and that thing is hope.

Keep voting for Trump. I almost hope he wins so when he completely destroys this country I can say I told you so.

At half time did you just hide in the locker giving up? win or lose he is still spreading the message. HRC has been desperate enough to shift to many of Sanders viewpoints, seeing her do so looks pathetic imho.

Sundays Seattle rally should be yuuuge!

Sanders just keeps on going, maybe Obama whispered news of an upcoming indictment into his ear.

Wait , wasnt Sanders supposed to be a shoe-in ? What with running against Clinton, the young popular vote , and the sheer amount of supposed supporters ? Where are (or were) they ? Now the only ones left are launching protests at Trump conventions. Perhaps they should actually have shown up at the voting booths

That's funny because I don't recall anyone saying Sanders was a shoe in, in fact quite the opposite! As I've said, Sanders has had more young people vote for him than Trump and Clinton combined.

And too boot, most states Sanders lost were very close. Missouri comes to mind.

Sen Sanders campaign was a long shot; HRC has been scheming her way to the presidency from 2008.

Go Bernie!

Gawd I do love it when disingenuous whitey preaches to the non-white folk trying to convince them he has their plight in perspective. That's some funny shot right there. "Vote for me" I know what its like being Mexican living in North Korea.

Americans are generally stupid to buy this shot. Wont matter, it will come down to Cankles and Hair Piece in a spandex laden Lucho cage match. The first one to injure their cellulite loses.

Personally Orville Knickerbocker (Sanders) has my love, but he's too much of a commie. And he couldn't possibly know the plight of my people. Or my tribe....He's creepy....like smiling uncle in clown shoes luring you to the closet with a ball and paddle creepy.

So when he says feel the Bern....is that like rug Bern from being on yer knees while Bernie imposes himself on your constitutional rights? Just curious, not that I care....I live in a country that's not going into the crapper like America.

Its almost like a bad reality show on Fox, but not Fox's main network...one of the other ones that nobody watches and they pay contestants 20 dollars and a bottle of ripple to participate.

All the while the other side is doing this...
GOP congressman furious after sacred Apache land in Arizona is designated a historic place !!

and this little turd says..



“Shame on the Park Service and Forest Service for ramming a bogus historic place listing down the throats of Arizonans,” Gosar said in a statement. “Clearly, the Obama Administration cares more about pandering to extremist environmental groups and a D.C. lobbyist from the Clinton Administration than following the law and listening to the American public.”


And we say...


“If Oak Flat were a Christian holy site, or for that matter Jewish or Muslim, no senator who wished to remain in office would dare to sneak a backdoor deal for its destruction into a spending bill — no matter what mining-company profits or jobs might result,” the Times’ Lydia Millet notes. “But this is Indian religion. Clearly the Arizona congressional delegation isn’t afraid of a couple of million conquered natives.”

As a person with Native American ancestry.

And looking back through American history with the 'Great White Father always speaking with fork tongue'.

Hasn't changed one damn bit.

For pete sake look at what was done to them.

The land taken, and the only thing they got out of were 'casino's'.

So Vote for another 'white father'.

As if.

Everyone in the race is a white male, except for one person. Does that mean you suggest we vote for Hillary?
