RAGING MONDAY is back! After a couple of weeks off, Raging Chicken Press editor, Kevin Mahoney, was back on the Rick Smith Show last night talking about Bernie Sanders, #BlackLivesMatter, Netroots Nation, and the messy process of movement building.
A little over a week ago, Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley were taken off their game when #BlackLivesMatters activists disrupted the presidential candidate town hall, insisting to have issues of racism, police brutality, and the murder of black men and women front and center. By all accounts, both O’Malley and Sanders did not handle things well. Here’s a pretty good account by David Dayen of what happened as well as some context about what’s been happening within Netroots. While much was initially made about problems with Bernie Sanders’s campaign, Kevin Mahoney had different take on what happened at Netroots, democracy, and movement building.
