Short and sweet. Play the video above (be sure to unmute the sound and ignore the framing in the crawl), then listen to the great point made by Joe Scarborough after the Sanders portion. Scarborough contrasts the end of most campaigns with this phase of the Sanders campaign. Most campaigns die a quiet death in a little room surrounded by friends.
Not this one. Scarborough recognizes the signs. This campaign continues:
"Do you remember the final scene from Marco Rubio's campaign, sort of a sad moment where they had to fill half of an atrium and it was mainly friends — that's how most campaigns end, sort of with a whimper.And it won't be because of Sanders that the fight still continues. It will be yours, because you understand that the hour of resistance is now.
(Pointing) "That campaign's not over. That campaign continues. And Hillary Clinton's people need to understand, those people last night knew things weren't going great, and [yet] they were out there screaming and yelling and fighting.
"And they're going to keep screaming and yelling, and they're going to keep fighting, and they're going to take it to the Democratic convention..."
My favorite song about resistance:
Damien Saëz performs "Fils de France" in concert at the Zénith in Paris, 12 November 2002.
A taste of the translated lyrics:
We are, we are ... the land of the Rights of ManFrench lyrics in this version, but really, just enjoy the power and the sweetness of the song.
We are, we are ... the land of Tolerance
We are, we are ... the land of the Enlightenment
We are, we are ... at the hour of the Résistance
À la résistance,
