  8. these two men conversing have made smile I in a way I haven't in a long time. I see hope for true progress in Americas political system, societal philosophy, and cultural diversity. Hopefully this land can truly become a free home for everyone. I say this not only for my sake but all of my boricuas in Puerto Rico who can't vote. Change is possible!

  9. As a Canadian being able to sit back and watch this election unfold without having any bias, you guys in the States really do need Bernie Sanders. Dude is real, no bullshit with him. It's not some sideshow or some battle of who loves God more, like the Republican debates always end up becoming. He is just a guy he knows what the fuck is wrong and how to just fix shit. Killer Mike nailed this sit down. Just a super smart guy interviewing another super smart guy. Great job, Mike. Do the right thing, USA. Get out and vote.

  10. Awesome …..loved every minute of every part of this sequence… Mike, your a true man… Mad respect…. I've never voted once in my 40 yrs, but Mr. Sanders now has my vote …

  11. In Canada we can own guns, just harder to obtain and the guns we can obtain are in no way automatic and mainly hunting oriented. You can still get pistols and other weapons off the street if you go way out of your way

  12. i just dont get americas obsession with guns. arent all those statistics about gun-related deaths in the US reason enough to ban military grade firearms? people own rifles for hunting everywhere, you just dont need big firearms.

  14. I worked for Sallie Mae consolidating student loans and was privy to the horror stories of student loans, our young people would call crying that they were not aware that all of loans these loans come due upon graduating, this is so wrong, we are the only country in the industrialized world that does this to it's families and to make matters worse we kill them with healthcare premiums that other make other people cringe and wonder how in the world does America find it in their collective hearts to destroy the very tax base that provides the politicians jobs with great pay and a every conceivable benefit known to mankind and turns its back on the very people "not the rich or wealthy who shelter their dollars elsewhere and do not pay any taxes at all" that have given so much.

  15. This was a terrific 6 part interview and I watched every one of them. I have to say that I really loved it. There were a lot of topics covered and this should tell a lot of people watching this of who Bernie Sanders is. Listen to what he has to say. He is always focused and on target on all the issues. He never wavers. Thanks for sharing this Killer Mike…

  19. Excellent, excellent conversation. I hope Sanders is your next president. It would be beneficial to the world. Killer Mike as the VP or in the presidential cabinet? I have no idea of your political capabilities but you seem to be a masterful visionary and communicator. Traits necessary in the field. Think about it. Now I'm gonna go and listen to your music.

  20. That was really ace. I get really inspired and motivated when I listen to intelligent, thinking, real people speaking (I do not like the hunting AT ALL – but that is not going to change my thoughts on your intellect, thoughtfulness and ideas – I will just never come hunting with you). Good work. When Bernie smiles, I can see it is real love.

  21. I've cried twice before this interview has came to an end, and I'm not even from the States! oh USA, how I wish you were'nt so god damn relevant

  22. I agree with Mike on most things and think he's a great activist, but I have to disagree with his view on gun control. I understand his argument, and as a white middle class guy I definitely cannot begin to understand what it's like to be scared for your life because of racism and crime. However, I am also from the UK where gun laws are very strict, and I know that our country is better off for it. Not only are there fewer homicides and acts of violence, but we also have very very few cases of police shooting that invoke any controversy. I'm 18 now I think I must have been around 14, possibly even younger, when there was last a controversial case of police violence against a black man. In America, such incidents occur regularly. In addition to this, I cannot remember there ever being a school shooting of any sort and this is due to the lack of guns. The fact of the matter is, by removing guns you remove the ability to commit gun related crimes, thus reducing the need for protection.

  23. Thank you, Killer Mike. Excellent interview. Fills me with hope, watching two intelligent, mature men discussing relevant issues. I am a Swedish citizen, living in Denmark, and I strongly believe that the American people could benefit enormously from implementing some of the "socialist" policies the Scandinavian countries implemented in the mid-1900´s, or even earlier.And I agree with many other commentators; if I could, I would vote for both Bernie AND Mike 🙂

  24. This says something about mike ( maybe more about me cz i havent even heard a single track of his), but ive been watching him and only heard about him through political interviews, talk shows etc, but the fact that ive heard of him and listened to him and only heard him through non-musical expression, shows that he is…i dont know how to verbally describe it actually, but a lot of rappers think they are doing a great justice talking about importnt and un-talked about things, and they are (not commercial/mainstream rap), while he is doing both, rappin his message while also literally walking the walk not just talking the talk ( proper activism)…Plus he is so fucking smart and just wired…maybe its the trees he be burnin hehe : D, but hey big ups to him, he's like a younger cornel west and i think even better and even more on point and broader. I love the man and i havent even heard a single tune, but i feel that i need to and want to now…Peace

  26. Bernie doesn't like having a lot of money, and he doesn't. So YOU shouldn't want to have a lot of money. Remember that.

  28. To see a real conversation as meaningful as this is inspiring. This election was feeling so hopeless until I saw this. This gave me energy, hope and excitement. I really hope more people see this!

  29. I liked his point about if the police have assault rifles then why shouldn't the people have them, but that leads to people saying well I want a predator drone or a tank, but it would also be interesting if the police weren't afforded assault rifles either, that's a good argument, in Britain not even the police had guns when there was a ban, all in all great interview Mike, I loved this whole convo.

    Reply

  30. Having a genuine conversation like this gave Bernie a sense of humanity and "personability" that I've yet to see from Hillary. I'd like to see her just sit down and have a candid convo like this. A big reason younger voters support Bernie isn't simply because we're all "Revolutionaries", it's because we can easily discern between someone who is genuine and someone who isn't.

  31. Thank you so much Mike for doing this! This kind of exposure is what Bernie needs! Hopefully people who are undecided or plan on voting for someone else will see videos of Bernie and end up voting for him!

  32. Great interview Mike, love your style brother and your intellectual curiosity is infectious. Have you checked out what Chris Hedges has to say about the issues you explored with Bernie? I would be very interested in your take on Hedges. peace, love and harmony form Québec

  33. my friends tried to get me to listen to run the jewels and i couldn't get into it. i haven't really liked any rap since the mid-nineties, but ,and i'm a 46 year old ,blue collar,white male punk rocker ( not spiky hair and a leather jacket punker, fuck the establishment and fuck your rules punk rocker) i really have enjoyed this conversation and killer mike sounds like me when i explain a lot of my political views( ie- killer mike is a punk rocker). i'm a left wing progressive who loves guns and doesn't even remotely trust establishment politicians, democrat or republican. i'm terrified by this new trend of name recognition presidents and politicians, the nepotism of it all disgusts me as much as the publics seeming hunger to buy into it.. hillary straight out scares me, less than the insane asylum that is the GOP now, but she's too beholden to too many people for me to trust very much and as much as she tries to play it off, she reeks of white entitlement. i'm well aware that i'm writing run on sentences, but if it's good enough for hunter thompson it's good enough for me. anyway, just downloaded both run the jewels records, killer mike, i'd love some whiskey and we need bernie sanders like a guy with the clap needs to go get that shot. GET THE FUCK OUT AND VOTE!! NOT JUST FOR BERNIE, BUT IN EVERY ELECTION!! LOCAL ELECTIONS ARE IMMENSELY IMPORTANT TO YOU AND YOUR COMMUNITY! RISE ABOVE AND START A POLITICAL REVOLUTION TODAY!

  36. does it really take youtube to get a decent interview with a presidential candidate?
    i'm not a us-citizen but like many others i fear for the world if donald trump is elected. i actually didn't believe that it was possible at all, but like sanders said, this is how all the big dictators got into office. it's the same mechanisms that hitler exploited and people apparently never learn.
    i really hope that stuff like this will make a difference. if trump is elected the usa will be a threat to the rest of the world, will become isolated and thrown back. it's actually scary to think about it. and i don't understand why so many people don't see the writing on the wall here.

  37. You had me until the guns and God stuff. Haha

    I completely agree with you that if "they" have guns, then we should too ("they" being police officers and "the government" generally). But what if they didn't have guns? That's the whole point. We don't need guns. We only need guns to protect ourselves from other people with guns. Anything else is just recreational.

    I get that people like guns, but that just isn't enough for me. For how much damage they do, they just aren't worth it. But if we were to get rid of them, of course it would mean for those in power as well. The gun isn't a safety blanket, no matter how much you'd like to think it is. Gun owners are wayyyyy more likely to be the victim of a shooting than non-owners.

    All of this aside, I commend you for introducing Bernie Sanders to the black community in true sincerity and compassion. I hope you are able to change some minds and get some people to realize that Bernie Sanders is really the only candidate we should be backing. He is the candidate that I have personally been hoping for my entire life. So, thank you for doing this.

  39. I just have to say this for the record…..Bernie Sanders is the MOST QUALIFIED candidate to lead the United States of America!……VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!!……I too had no clue who Sanders was until recently, and it's crazy that he isn't talked about more because the man is a pure genius! I also had no clue who Killer Mike was either, but I find him very informed and highly intelligent! He definitely should consider getting into politics as well!

  40. I really loved this discussion. I can't really understand how so many people think of Bernie's ideas as "out there". Being an idealist does not automatically mean that you lose touch with reality. Here we have a politician who sees so many things that are wrong with a country and tries to find the best solution to fix them. As he says himself realizing that change will take coordinated efforts from the American people and it won't happen in a day. Isn't it better to have someone as president who understands the big issues and is enthusiastic about solving them than someone who does not want to risk stepping on people's toes to gain votes? I'm not American so maybe my opinion isn't even relevant but it seems to me that Bernie is not just a politician, he represents an opportunity to set the country on a better path.

  44. This was seriously so beautiful to watch. Killer Mike, you are a great reviewer as well as a great man. Much respect. And if this doesn't convince people that Bernie is who we NEED as a president, idk what will. He literally wants everyone to be happy.

  45. As a 31 y.o white male from Texas, I'm Angry. I'm poor, constantly struggling with financial security paired with stable employment, and scared. I'm scared when i watch the news and see groups of other angry people being fed hateful rhetoric. I don't want to say Trump rallies, but yeah Trump rallies. Putting aside my own Problems with this and living in Texas while considering myself a progressive . I'm fearful that if Bernie does not win the election we will at best have a stagnant 4 years where most likely the slant of wealth inequality and separation-creating rhetoric will continue to grow. I don't think Bernie will be able to get all these things if not most of them done, but what i do believe in is that he will help shift our way of thinking to start acting together, we can be different in many ways, be it wealth, color, religious beliefs, and sexual identity, and still be a group invested in the betterment of our nation and humanity in general. We are in fact, all humans. At least I'm pretty sure we are. Forget The GOP's choices, I'm speaking of Hillary, the republican candidates are a non-option in my mind, of course Bernie will get push back on anything progressive he proposes, but Hillary will too, and I just don't believe that she will stand up to the same amount of resistance, to which I'm certain there will be. She is a politician who has had her life planned out for years. In my perspective, I feel she has been in this line of work for a while with the main focus on the career and not what the job actually means. to represent the individuals who essentially hired you. To listen to their wants needs and concerns and then give every ounce and hour of effort to trying to address them.

    You rock Mike, TY to you both for sitting down and having such a real talk. Sorry for coming in so late, better believe I did early voting on the primaries though!

I am not an US citizen, in fact I haven't even being there ever, BUT just because of the effect that the choice you "Americans" take when you vote will have on my country, I feel in the obligation of inform myself about whats going on in your country and share that info.

  57. John the Baptists and his disciples were egalitarian gnostic reformists, they viewed the Abrahamic deity, a culturally appropriated lesser canaanite warrior deity chosen for its isolationist properties, as the Demiurge, the one keeping the illusion of the physical realm, that which not only the cathars later viewed as hell or rather purgatory and even the error in translation which is the current bible only calls "hell" – earth, as a prison away from the higher divine knowledge and true pure aspect of god beyond the physical realm.

    Then after the fact came Paul, a former warrior, viewed the political landscape and the divide between the original gnostic origins of the philosophy and the crumbling Roman state and rebuilt the tool (religion with out the philosophy) into one of power, the hierarchical Roman-Catholic church as a control mechanism of fear and shame, "Paulinism", while discrediting and eradicating traces of the original egalitarian philosophy and its followers.

    Egalitarian (equality) Gnostic (knowledge) Reformism (change) – that's what is missing from Religion, or rather philosophy with out the conviction of the hierarchical doctrine.

  61. Mike I still think this is the best conversation I have watched between 2 real men on politics on the State of affairs in our Union and it was held in a barbershop Mike I don't care about copyright infringement or anything if I hit the lottery tomorrow I'm going to make 10 millionillion copies of this video and I'm going to distribute it around the country.
    Thomas Paine jump-started thirteen colonies to become
    the United Sttes with a pamphlet called " common sense "
    You can now jump start United States into becoming all we can be the government founding fathers truly envision bye producing means of copies of this conversation between Mike and Bernie in a barbershop around the country and the world
    Now you might be saying Yogi don't get carried away it wasn't that great a conversation it wasn't that deep wasn't that profound it wasn't that meaningful it wasn't what you think it was all about that its going going to shake up the world
    Well you're a man of humanity and humble so you probably don't want to blow your own horn but I'm telling you they didn't think Thomas Paine's pamphlet common Sense was going to shake up the country and it did.
    I'm no savant genius or Einstein but in my 55 years on this planet I know it when I see it.
    And I know in my heart of hearts that if you could get this distributed around the country it would be the same type of jump start Thomas Paine gay to this country with a small pamphlet call common Sense….
    We could call this video and conversation common Sense part 2

  62. Mike, you're being played big time. Socialism is inherently tyrannical and is diametrically opposed to our founding documents which were written to limit government and protect individual liberty. The 2A is our insurance policy. If you're not putting the 2A first and foremost you might as well flush all your other values down the toilet.

    Also VT used to have no gun laws, and for no reason at all, the RINO governor decided on a whim to pass strict gun control without a vote. VT is now compromised.

    Don't take the bait, Mike. Sanders is a tyrant. You're a smart dude but you're being lulled by the siren song of a Utopian lie.
