You should see who is getting Bernie swarmed!

https://www.facebook.com/ElizabethWarren

Could Senator Warren call this a 'special place in hell'?

Good job, bros!

It's astounding - and I'm wondering if they're really Bernie supporters or Dems, for that matter. They sound like Libertarians, Naderites, and Greens - with an occasional Repub tossed in.

But I believe Warren will come out and support Hillary Clinton - but not in the primaries. She'll endorse afterward and when Hillary wins MA.

I really respect Elizabeth Warren, but the demographic she appeals to is the same one that Bernie Sanders does. What do they even think her endorsement would do? Sure up Massachusetts?

Her endorsement will carry a lot more weight when her and Sanders endorse Hillary, since they represent a different constituency.

16. The spamming of PP, Naral, Al Franken, John Lewis, and anyone who endorses Hillary is bad enough,

now they are brow beating people who don't want to get into the political fray and endorse someone, and they wonder why Bernie lost in most demographic groups by so much in South Carolina.

If these supporters think they are helping Sanders they will be sadly mistaken as they turn more and more people away from their bullying tactics.

I was one of the voices on DU who argued that we respect Senator Warren's no on running for the nomination, because it was a very ugly optic when they refused to accept her decision and wanted to pressure her into running, like a young would-be rapist with his prom date. And now they keep disregarding her will and opinion and want to keep hammering her until she cannot continue her regular routine, like posting and engaging with her constituents on facebook, to get her to endorse Sanders - it is such an archetypal example of rape culture in action.

There are some deeply psychological issues related to Hillary's campaign.

Just as Obama's victory exposed the deep-seated racism, Hillary's campaign is exposing our inexplicable sexism and American cultural patriarchal society.

Because or despite - time for us to shatter that glass ceiling!

I must say, this has really gotten to me, that they are treating Senator Warren like this, that I can't stop thinking about it. Stevenleser said in my thread that the best asset Hillary has for getting people to not support Sanders are the Sanders supporters. I am more and more convinced that he is right.

39. They seem to see her as some sort of mascot

Every Sanders supporter I come across assumes, with absolute certainty, that she is in his corner. From that assumption, it's concluded that she is toying with people (yes, rape culture-y, as above mentioned) or that she is terrified of the all-powerful Clinton Machine--a damsel in distress who needs to be rescued by Bernie and his supporters.

Never occurs to them that she might be ambivalent, or might support each one for different reasons.

Let's not even consider the possibility that she might (gasp!) lean towards Clinton.

And yes, if she were to endorse Clinton, the rage would go off the internet meter.

CIVIL LIBERTIES
The Curious Islamophobic Politics of Dem Congressmember Tulsi Gabbard
Gabbard comes from one of the nation's most progressive chapters of the Democratic Party.
By Zaid Jilani / AlterNet February 22, 2015
Print
303 COMMENTS

Photo Credit: "Tulsi Gabbard, official portrait, 113th Congress" by United States Congress -

“Meet the Democrat Who’s Not Afraid to Criticize President Obama on ISIS,” intones a recent ABC News headline. The story describes remarks by Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D), who has for the past month been all over the media slamming Obama's refusal to directly associate ISIS and other terrorists with the Islamic faith.

She's particularly a favorite of right-wing media. Appearing with Fox's Neil Cavuto last week, she lashed out at the White House for holding an extremism summit with Muslim Americans, saying it's a “diversion from what our real focus needs to be. And that focus is on that Islamic extremist threat.” She criticized Obama for saying that “poverty, lack of access to jobs, lack of access to education” is contributing to radicalization. “They are not fueled by materialistic motivation, it's actually a theological, this radical Islamic ideology,” she said, throwing red meat to Fox viewers.

To the media, Gabbard is a curious spectacle. She's a Hawaii Democrat, coming from one of the nation's most progressive and dovish chapters of the Democratic Party, but she's also an Iraq war veteran, and she's consistently tried to outflank President Obama and the rest of her party to the right on foreign affairs. Last month she openly mocked Secretary of State John Kerry during an appearance on CNN, saying that he thinks that, "if we give them [Islamic extremists] $10,000 and give them a nice place to live that somehow they're not going to be engaged in this fighting."To Gabbard, the idea that Syria and Iraq have been through years of brutal civil war, wrecked economies, and massive displacement is irrelevant; the only reason they have an extremism problem is because of Islamic theology."

But the case of Tulsi Gabbard becomes less curious and more expected once you look at her links to a different set of ethnic and religious hardliners: the Hindu nationalist Indian Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Since her election to Congress, Gabbard has tied herself closely to this party, which has a history of condoning hatred and violence against India's Muslim minority. Many of her stateside donors and supporters are also big supporters of this movement, which disdains secularism and promotes religious sectarianism.

60. And, somehow, incredible national exposure!

Live endorsement on "Meet the Press"?

Isn't she 1 out of 435?

She supports Sanders. She has called Sanders the most qualified "military-mind" in the election.

I have no problem with politicians sticking with their "brand." You represent your constituency, and in turn you have to do what you have to do - or get out of politics.

Other politicians and supporters will use this as they may - but it doesn't warrant much attention, and is relatively insignificant.

And I still like Tulsi Gabbard!
