I thought it was offensive when I read it this morning.
Since I’ve been banned from commenting on that site, however, I said nothing.
I’ve decided to speak now, though in a way that lets others do the talking for me.
Yes, these are quotes from the comments.
Here we go.
What Do I Think of Hillary 2016 and the National Democratic Machine?
I find the argument not just specious, but patronizing and deeply offensive.
Clinton, much like Obama, represents everything that is wrong with the corrupt political system: big money, bad trade deals, & a complete lack of moral compass.
If Hillary loses, her supporters should do likewise – and if they do not, then it will show the true threat that Bernie poses to the corporate power structure.
Ultimately this is going to be a test of money versus people.
Sanders supporters need to start thinking now about how they are going to…Keep the movement alive by…laying the path to the House state-by-state (*cough* Denise Juneau *cough*). But we need to clean up in the states to take back a chance for the House.
So instead of making an argument that HRC should be the nominee, you’re attacking the people who support Sanders. That’s wrong. That’s patronizing. That’s deeply, deeply offensive. And it’s divisive. Strongly and gratuitously divisive.
The “extreme left” being someone who takes on the banks, corporations and billionaires? A la FDR?
American public opinion has changed, and is changing, and the unchanging Bernie Sanders is now in sync with the electorate. I hope you can honestly accept the consequences of your argument when the Bern becomes unstoppable.
Hillary flat out scares some people. Me included.
She’s probably better than Rubio I guess.
Yes, vote for Clinton, the risk taker, if you want someone capable of running an imperial presidency against Congress.
She has managed to alienate two thirds of white males, she only polls at 44% of white females, only 40% of independents will vote for her and last, after she stated that she would be in favor of a mandatory gun buyback plan like the one Australia put into effect she will lose a large number of moderate Democrats. I do not think that these people will vote republican I just do not think they will vote. Sanders has popularity among all of these groups and if he were to get the nomination he would win.
Sure… potential consequences. Threaten Sanders’ supporters. Really makes me feel good about Clinton boosters and Clinton’s campaign. I imagine the consequences might also include getting blacklisted by the dem party in many, many ways down the road.
In short, while Hillary is raising money from her pals on Wall Street — the people are getting organized. Feeling the Bern? Sign up today!
This is Montana. Vote for whoever the hell you want, a Republican will carry the State…I shudder at the thought of any of the GOP assholes being elected but I will not vote for HRC.
Well, there you have it. Those were not my words, but I agree with them 110%.
Bernie, do not stop.
- Do not let the Hillary machine intimidate you.
- Do not let the corrupt Party apparatuses across this country try to scare you.
- Do not let state Party organizations threaten your members with retribution.
- Do not let this corporate, foreign-banker, Wall Street cesspit-infestation of monumental fucking proportions continue!
There, I think I’ve said enough.
