So we are snapping at each other, meanwhile

You see on TV the current events developing in chicago at the trump rally.

We are so busy demonizing Hillary or Bernie , we dont even react to the fact that we are seeing the rise of fachism in this country. these scenes could have be lifted from the 1930's during the rise of the nazi party in germany or mussolini's black shirts in italy

Its not a game anymore. Its the future of our country. trump has to be stopped.

1. A Bernie supporter's "+1." Evidently the most revolutionary act currently possible on DU...

 

...is building bridges.

2. At this point, I couldn't care less who wins the Dem Primary

I'm voting for whomever wins the Dem nomination. Both Sanders and Clinton will be oodles better than ANY of the Republican Candidates.

However, Mussolini 2.0 needs to be stopped at all costs.

3. Really?

 

I learned to walk and chew gum at the same decades ago.

I can track the counter protests in Chicago at the same time I am castigating Clinton for her lies.

5. I know it was never a 'game' for me.

And I have to think that anyone who thinks of politics in general or the primary specifically as 'a game' is merely displaying their privilege.

6. No shit!

 

This is what is at stake, and Clinton will lose to Trump.

4. 6 of one, half a dozen of the other

Trump is no worse than Cruz. Both need to be stopped, but the GOP will nominate one or the other. And we don't get to pick for them. Protests like this just harden GOP support for him - remember, THEY think WE'RE the Fascists.

9. Good to call it out!

In my experience the rush to appear sensitive, and not compare anything to 'Hitler' lest we diminish the atrocity of the Holocaust, could be dispensed with here, because it is so important, to stop Fascism before it takes root.

Trump appeals to Authoritarian personalities who want to feel more important than minority citizens. Poor fucks.

10. Then getting the strongest candidate is even more important, yes?

And without a vigorously contested primary how do we know which is the best candidate?

13. I am all for a vigorous primary.

If anything it will further contrast how different the democratic party candidates are from trump. I will happily vote for Hillary or Bernie in the General.

12. Not for me.

Apparently it is for some people who would rather not vote if they do not get their candidate and let trump win instead.
