Ryan Gosling Celebrates His Birthday By Voicing His Support For Bernie Sanders
Hey, girl, if Ryan Gosling asked you to vote for Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential election, would you?
On Thursday, Ry Gos broke his 100-day Twitter silence with a very simple call-to-action for his followers and fans.
The actor turned 35 today and chose to mark the occasion by sharing a video of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders hugging a Muslim student who asks what he will do to dissolve racial tensions in the country.
During a town hall meeting at George Mason University in Virginia, the female student stands up to say,
[Republican candidates] are talking about Islamophobia and are constantly bashing Muslims in the media ... As an American Muslim student who aspires to change the world ... hearing the rhetoric that's going on in the media makes me sick ... To the next president of the United States, what do you think about that?
In response to her concern, Sanders says in the video,
You are right. There is a lot of anger being generated and hatred being generated against Muslims in this country -- that's absolutely correct. There is hatred being generated against immigrants in this country. And if we stand for anything, we have got to stand together and end all forms of racism. And I will lead that effort as president of the United States.
Gosling's outward support of the presidential hopeful will surely turn heads and draw the attention of the Millennial demographic that greatly comprises his fanbase.
Of the issue of racism in the country, Sanders says,
I will do everything I can to rid this country of the ugly stain of racism.
Do you stand behind his message?
