Inspired by Sanders, activists push Democrats to the left — or out of the way

  Inspired by Sanders, activists push Democrats to the left — or out of the way While Sen. Bernie Sanders used his star power to unite activists behind the Democrats at a progressive conference, some debated whether the party could ever be fixed to their liking. Faced with unified Republican control of Washington, progressives were less interested in simple unity than in a purity that they believed could win.Much of the discussion at the People’s Summit focused on the need to leave “neoliberal” politics in the dust. But there was disagreement about how to do so.

During his match at the ATP Nottingham Challenger on Thursday, Britain’s Brydan Klein called himself a “ stupid , stupid person ” for hitting the ball into the net while trying to return a serve from his opponent, Sam Groth.

Klein was banned from tennis for six months in 2009 for racially abusing an opponent, so there is certainly some history there. The outburst may not have been as bad as some of the tennis meltdowns we’ve showed you in the past, but you can understand why the judge was on edge.
