  1. Engle is a dinosaur and needs to go. Keep it going Progressives!!!

    • YES and no.., yes to vote for him.., the ¨progressive¨ thing.., i am not sure about.
      But i agree with the basics of your statement.
      Greetings bibia.

      @bibia666 The root word of “progressive” is “progress.” So are you unsure about progress..? Is that where you’re having trouble..?

    • j welsh : We need young guns. Fresh blood, with a fresh perspective and no baggage. So, I’m all for this guy, who’s worked as a principal of a school, and therefore knows how things work.
      Besides, I’ve seen Black Lightning. He can fight crime too 😉✌️👍

      @bibia666 ..If you are not agreeing with the progressive part I guess you are a ‘lightwieght’ republican that thinks he is a Democrat. Am I wrong?

      @Troll Extraordinaire ..Why do I doubt that you even know what an anakist is?

    • Oddvard Myrnes | June 25, 2020 at 12:04 PM | Reply

      @ruth depew ..Why are you saying that? Do you confuse whichfull thinking with reality? Politcs are the art of the possible. Unfortunatly the conservatives will exsist as long as christianity. Why? Because the conservatives are the christians. It is engrained into them from birth. This is why it is a tribal environment now.

    • ruth depew Honestly that’d be b a beautiful thing. Imagine how great our country would be if the furthest to the right you could go was Biden

    Conservatives will give great farewell to Donald Trump in November 2020 and then this country will rise again with its secular and democratic values .

    Progressives need to be actively involved in government

  8. Looking forward to seeing what he does. Time for change!

    Correction: Jamaal Bowman is now the congressman elect of New York’s 13th district. He’s going to be a fantastic representative.

    • 16th actually

    • Oddvard Myrnes | June 25, 2020 at 8:44 AM | Reply

      13th or 16th who care. This is a victory. But let me pour some ice water into your vanes. This is just a start and if you are in the belief that massive change are just around the corner – NO it is NOT! This is a long fight. Tessmage Tessera is right. You build a movment. They will do whatever they can (DNC) to trick or pressure Jamal into a compromising situation where they can control him. Mrs Clinton has allready manuvered Camela Harris into VP position and if Biden win you are stuck with Clinton, Tanden, Axelrod, Rahm and the old crew. This is why you must NOT vote Biden. Let the chips fall where they may with Trump, build the movment and it is yours for the taking in a couple of years. Go with Biden and you bury yourself.

  10. The GOP funneled money to Elliot’s campaign.

    I’m liking this progressive movement! Gives me hope that politicians CAN be OF the people FOR the people!

    • Tessmage Tessera | June 25, 2020 at 3:50 AM | Reply

      I should think that most Americans would embrace the progressive movement, if they took some time to learn about us. “Progressive” simply means to place a strong focus upon social progress, instead of the rather backward and oppressive ways that we’ve always done things in America. Social justice and equality has to be more important than corporate profits and tax shelters for the super-rich. As progressives, that’s really all that we’re striving for… and I can’t imagine why any fair-minded people would be opposed to those values.

  12. look how much the msnbc host despises him. lol 😩😂

  13. The USA is so messed up that black politicians support a white guy over an anti-racist black guy.

    Leads? He crushed him!!! Admit it you corporate guys are scarrrreeedddd!!! Here comes justice democrats!!

    Jamal. Be aware of MSNBC. They are under DNC control and can turn on you anytime Clinton say so. DNC will try to get you aligned with the narretive they peddle. Clinton have allredy planned to place Kamela Harris as VP and if Biden win Mrs Clinton & crew (Nera Tanden and others) will control the WH. Be calm, careful and bide your time. Do NOT let the DNC lead you. Talk only to your constituency and find out who the players are. Who you can trust and who you can not.

  20. Loving this progressive wave.
