Default Marching lockstep with the DNC

"Bernie Sanders's delegates are being asked not to attack Democrats publicly on social media or to speak to members of the press without approval.

The Vermont senator's campaign has shared a tentative agreement with some but not all of the supporters who will represent him at the Democratic National Convention, set to take place at the moment from Aug. 17-20 in Milwaukee.

“Refrain from making negative statements about other candidates, party leaders, Campaigns, Campaign staffers, supporters, news organizations or journalists," the nondisparagement arrangement reads, according to the Washington Post.

The document adds, "This Campaign is about the issues and finding solutions to America’s problems. Our job is to differentiate the senator from his opponents on the issues — not through personal attacks.”

The framework, which would allow for delegates to be stripped of their duties for rules violations, has not been finalized as Sanders's team adjusts the terms of the social media policy, nondisclosure agreement, and delegate code of conduct form to satisfy rankled delegates. The social media policy is particularly important given the convention is likely to unfold, at least partially, online amid the coronavirus pandemic."

Apparently you are allowed to think for yourself, as long as your thoughts are pre-approved by the Democratic party, eh?
