Picture of Juggalette breastfeeding at Bernie Sanders rally goes viral

A picture of a Juggalette at a Bernie Sanders rally has officially gone viral.  Elle Bradford was at the rally when her daughter needed to be fed.  Rather than retreat to somewhere more private, she stayed at the rally and nourished baby Harper at the same time.  She didn’t think much of it until the picture started circulating, and says that reactions have been positive overall.  You can read the full story and watch the interview below.

From ABC15.com:

BARBERTON, OH – A photo of a local mother breastfeeding at Bernie Sanders’ rally in Cleveland is going viral — and sparking a surprising reaction.

At just six-months-old, Harper Bradford is already making a pretty strong political statement. Not with her words — but with her mouth.

Barberton mom Elle Bradford brought her baby to Bernie Sanders’ rally last Thursday and while she was “feeling the Bern,” baby Harper felt something else, too.


“There is no, ‘I’m feeding you in 10 minutes.’ It’s, ‘I’m feeding you right here, right now, or you’re screaming,” Bradford said.

So sitting second row, just feet away from the Democratic Presidential candidate, Bradford did what a mom has to do — and proof of it captured in a photo is now going viral.

But what makes the photo even more special for the family is that Bradford’s 3-year-old son Gavin was born with a hole in his heart and had to be tube-fed, making it impossible for her to ever nurse him.

“So this being her last baby, she was determined to do the breastfeeding and do it well,” said grandma Lee Bradford.

Bradford said Jane Sanders even came by after Bernie’s speech to thank her for being a mother. And the reaction she’s gotten from the public as the photo is shared thousands of times on social media, she said, has been primarily positive.

“I’m shocked,” she said, “And pleasantly surprised.”

Both mom and baby plan to be back in Cleveland when Bernie Sanders returns this Saturday.

And here’s a video interview / news story to go with it:

    What I love about this story is that it’s not just a Juggalette getting some positive press… it’s a Juggalette getting praise and admiration *for being a Juggalette* and representing Juggalette values. A lot of people believe women should be able to breast feed wherever they want, but a lot of women who believe that don’t have the courage to do it. Here’s a Juggalette representing what Juggalettes are about by not giving a fuck what people think about her breastfeeding. And, non-Juggalettes are inspired by that and respondong with praise and admiration. It’s cool to a case where someone gets a positive reaction from mainstream society for acting exactly like a Juggalo.

    Thanks for the mention Scotty!

    What I hate about this is that a Juggalette is a Bernie Sanders supporter. I fucking hate socialists, you can be a Juggalo or Lette and be a smart Libertarian or Republican. And in no way do I see this as positive really, just kind of silly really. Neither positive or negative.

    Dear Beckon, socialism is different from republicans and libertarians, those are political parties…. You clearly don’t even know what socialism is, you should do some research and not listen to the decades of brainwashing in favor of capitalism. Capitalism has pretty much ruined this country and we could use a little socialism to balance it out. A merge of the two will bring great things.
    Bernie for the win.

    Dear Deiko
    You are obviously one of the brain washed know nothings, who think they know something. I do know what socialism is, unfortunately. Now name one socialist country that has prospered? Capitalism is a stupid word invented by the King Socialist himself Karl Marx in his book Capitol. I am for Freed Trade and no government restrictions and stealing your mother fucking money; rich or poor. Wow where did you get the idea that I was saying socialism is not different from republicanism or libertarian. I suggest actually reading the comment before making your own comment. That there is a major problem with Bernie supporters, they don’t think and merely just see the word free, like free college, and automatically sign up without thinking of the consequences or how that would even come to pass. So I suggest you read books by Ayn Rand and Ludwig von Mises. But, you will probably just sit there, thumb in your ass and draw horrible conclusions and make horrible opinions based on nothing substantial.
