Neil Young endorses Bernie Sanders for President


After making no secret of his admiration of Bernie Sanders in the past, Neil Young has publicly endorsed Democratic Party’s nomination for President of the United States in the 2020 election.

Young, taking to his website, has penned a lengthy and highly positive endorsement for the Vermont senator: “I support Bernie because I listen to what he says,” Young writes. “Every point he makes is what I believe in. Every one. In 2016, if Bernie had run instead of Hillary Clinton, I think we would not have the incompetent mess we have now.”

Young, who recently became an official U.S. citizen recently, added: “Outside the courthouse, after I was naturalized (funny word for it), there was a Democrat Party Registration booth,” as part of his endorsement. “I registered. My first error as a U.S. citizen will be corrected now. I am registering Independent. The wheels are in motion. I don’t trust the DNC because I think the DNC is pushing their own agenda over the good of the country.”

“Stand with Bernie Sanders,” Young continues. “Stand for the workers, stand for the teachers, stand for the students, stand up for Climate Justice. Stand for higher taxes on the super-rich to pay for all love the above! Stand for the American Future. Stand with Bernie Sanders.”

Young also goes on yo warn his fans of the dangers in believing political advertisements posted on the social media platform Facebook: “Facebook is full of bots and trolls,” he writes. “It’s not America. Forget social media. Ignore it and replace it with truth. I don’t believe the Facebook social media cesspool of lies, disinformation from other counties and misleading comments. I believe Bernie Sanders. I think Bernie Sanders is the Real Deal.”
