Jill Stein told Bernie Sanders backers Tuesday to go green with vengeance, as in the Green Party, when they vote in November as the she participated in a rally near Philadelphia's city hall on, reported Philly.com.

Stein, a Massachusetts physician and activist, addressed Sanders activists who have not been swayed by called to unify behind Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton or that voting for the Green Party could help Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump win the presidency, stated Philly.com.


"Our hearts are with (Sanders), our hearts are with you," Stein told a cheering crowd at what was called a "Bernie or Bust" rally, noted Philly.com. "Whatever happens, you know my campaign is here."

Stein criticized the Clinton, who officially won the nomination Tuesday, and the Democratic National Committee for what she called "back stabbing and sabotage," referring possibly to the email scandal that led to the resignation of the DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz this week, noted PennLive.com.


Wasserman Schultz's left after nearly 20,000 leaked emails were released by Wikileaks that showed that efforts were talked about by party staffers to possibly undermine Sanders' candidacy for president, according to USA Today.


"He may say some bad things, but she's done some bad things," progressive radio host Tim Black, a Sanders supporter, said a rally Tuesday with the crowd chanting "Jill, not Hill," noted PennLive.com. "Clinton is way more dangerous than Trump. It was Bernie or Bust, and now it's time for bust."

Stein appeared to reject Democrat calls for unity among progressives on the show "Democracy Now" on Tuesday, where she appeared with former NAACP head and Sanders surrogate Ben Jealous, who was calling for unity.


"(Trump) says extremely despicable, reprehensible things, but at the same time, Hillary Clinton has a track record for doing absolutely horrific things, for expanding wars, in the likes of Libya, for example," Stein said on "Democracy Now."

"There could hardly be an example of a more catastrophic war, which has been more problematic for increasing the terrorist threats. Finger on the nuclear button? I worry very much about the air war that Hillary Clinton would like to start over Syria with this no-fly zone against a nuclear-armed power in the form of Russia," she continued.

Some on the crowd listening to Stein appeared to leaning toward her message and voting for the Green Party.

"I still believe that (Clinton) would be better than Trump," Bryan Gallow told Philly.com. "(But) I'm tired of just having to pick between Republican and Democrat."

Black added, according to PennLive.com: "We got to vote for Dr. Jill Stein, because the movement must keep moving. The lesser of two evils is still evil."
