Throwing dollar bills at a woman...just when you think BernieBros couldn't get anymore crass!

My blood is boiling. Could the political discourse get any lower?

Are we seriously still pretending that "BernieBros" was something conjured up by the Clinton campaign?

150. Well...

it was relevant in 2008 when she and her husband were doing horribly racist things against Obama. Don't pretend to not remember that. Here, it is clear that they were throwing money to make a statement about corruption, and women were involved in this action. You all think people are stupid as humans can be to think that people can't see this for the clumsy propaganda it is. It wasn't sexist, it was an action against her corruption.

what Bill Clinton said was factually accurate. There are some Bernie supporters who have expressed the implicit or explicit desire to execute the rich/Wall Street/1%. Good for him for calling them out on that.

Clinton supporters say that Bernie's numbers don't add up. If Jane were to say something like "Clinton supporters think Bernie can't do maths lol" I don't see anything wrong with that as it's factually accurate.

73. "Hillary and the gun deals she signed off on"

A Pentagon document, linked to by Lee Fang of The Intercept shows that "Clinton approved a sale of over 4 million dollars ($4,195,110.40 by my count) by the Remington Arms Company of New York in 2012. This is particularly notable because Remington is the same gun maker that made the AR-15-type semiautomatic rifle (a Bushmaster XM15-E2S) used by Adam Lanza in the Sandy Hook massacre in December of 2012. Remington Arms is now the subject of the families’ lawsuit.

Furthermore;

The Pentagon document also shows Clinton that year approved over $100 million dollars ($116,160,367.19 by my count) in ammunition sales by Alliant Techsystems, the parent company of Savage Arms, which makes the MK II-F bolt action rifle Lanza used to kill his mother.

...

This revenue for gun and ammunition makers helped the NRA in its political efforts. In 2014, Bill Clinton campaigned for Senator Mark Pryor of Arkansas. Pryor’s opponent Tom Cotton was supported by NRA money contributing to Pryor’s defeat. Clinton thus approved gun sale revenue that would have flowed through Remington, Colt and others to the NRA onwards to the Clintons’ declared political opponents. NRA spending on lobbying and elections outpaced such spending by the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence by 73 to 1 in 2012.

Many of the Clinton-approved sales were to client nations who receive military aid from the U.S. (Afghanistan, Egypt, Israel) and thus from taxpayers. So the NRA is funded by your taxes this way:

you → federal government → client nation → gunmaker → NRA

Check the post of "Mr. Wendell" he refers to Hillary as a "whore" not a 'corporate whore". His is the post to which

I responded, and another poster has already called him out on it, so it seems you're a little behind, as usual.

That would be funny, if it weren't so frightfully ignorant.

My dear, the word "whore" as a slur applied to women who had sex with men for money, is EXTREMELY

old. It vastly predates the very EXISTENCE of corporations, let alone the term "corporate whore".

Sorry, that's all the remedial education I have time for today.

MrWendell is a Hillary supporter. So "she's supposed to be a whore" should be expanded to:

According to Bernie supporter's she is supposed to be a whore. So that is why they think it is funny to throw money at her to call her a whore. Because Bernie supporters are misogynist assholes.


Of course, you started playing the "they're calling her a whore" routine in response to posts earlier than MrWendell which gives the lie to your entire pretense of using MrWendell's post to justify your routine.

What is sounds like you saw was a bunch of guys tossing money at poor lady treating her like a woman of the night. That is called projection at best. It is not a healthy attitude from a group that wants to unite us. And make no mistake Trump will own people that make arguments like you as if you were nothing at all. You think these things mean something when you spout them, but you are taking power away from real victims, you are using them as if you were the people doing these things you envision in your head.

91. Okay, let's say the stripper analogy is valid - which, of course, it's not.

There are male strippers, too. Lots of them. Crying sexism at every turn makes your candidate seem like a poor, helpless, cowering creature. You would make a much better point if you just laughed and commented on how stupid you think it was.

104. Optics and implications matter. Even if you may not have been consciously sexist

 

The action could easily be put into a sexist frame of reference when aimed at a woman. Same thing as the "corporate whores" thing, Sure you could interpret the action as gender-neutral but it has societal and cultural associations that must be kept in mind.

105. Who really are the sexists here?

 



Hillary actually asks for people to throw $1 bills at her ... What was the reaction from Bernie supporters?

Yes, Bernie supporters ridiculed her here are some examples from twitter
http://www.rsvlts.com/2016/02/10/imnotkiddingmaddi/

Bernie supporters didn't go to for the sexist interpretation, they went after the complete lack of self-awareness of the Hillary camp.

So when Bernie supporters further ridicule the this lack of awareness by doing exactly what Hillary asks people to do, throw $1 bills at her, what do the Hillary supporters go to? Fucking sexism!!

"Look at me, I'm an attractive candidate swinging on a pole begging you to throw $1 bills at me .... What are you doing throwing $1 bills at me? Do you think I'm a stripper?"

121. You know I looked at that Black SUV and I didn't see any lady parts or boy parts for that matter.

But seriously. Do you even know which SUV she was in? No you don't just ginned up outrage about Bernie and his supporters. Here's what I see, someone says corporate whore you guys automatically decide it's Hillary who is the corporate whore. Protesters throw dollar bills at a line of SUV's and you guys automatically put Hillary on a stripper pole. You are either deliberately trying to smear people as sexist or you guys really have a low opinion of your candidate. I have a low opinion of her but when I hear the word whore my mind doesn't automatically tie Hillary and the word whore together. When I see protesters throwing dollar bills at SUV's, plural, and you have no way of knowing what vehicle she was in, on their way into a high dollar fundraiser I see a statement being made about money in politics.
My mind doesn't put Hillary on a stripper pole like your does, I don't associate the word whore with her either. Too bad her supporters think of her that way. She deserves better.

So today's fake outrage is to pretend this isn't about corruption but instead an insult to her as a woman, as if there were no women throwing bills as well. Does your blood always boil because of fake, manufactured nonsense? Pretend to not get the point as to why they were throwing dollar bills at her.

Learn from your mistakes and try to avoid making the same (or similar) ones in the future.

Pretending that we're intentionally misunderstanding only makes things worse for Bernie as it helps to illustrate exactly what everyone's upset about.

But... as always, the choice is yours to make. Whether you learn from your mistakes is entirely up to you. We can't force you, but we can continue to point out when you're wrong, and when the actions are unacceptable. (Count on it.)

There is real sexism in the world and you calling everything sexism doesn't help deal with real sexism. You have all used this so often that people won't take you seriously when real sexism occurs, since you do this fake nonsense so often.

your stupid propaganda of pretending this was a mistake and was sexist. I don't know who you think you are fooling. The people involved in this demonstration, which included women (that clearly hate other women I guess), did what they did to protest corruption. Pretending, which is all it is, that this is sexist is absurd. It's called deflection, because you can't and won't deal with her decades long corruption.

On Mon Apr 18, 2016, 06:51 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

You have the mind
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=1769322

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Personal attack. Personal insult. Saying things like "You have the mind of a child" and "you look like a fool" are personal attacks and not permitted by DU rules.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Mon Apr 18, 2016, 06:57 PM, and the Jury voted 2-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Personal attack.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Because the rest of this sub-thread is SO respectful... *eye roll*
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: It's not a civil discussion from either member. I'd vote hide the thread.
And NurseJackie could lose her little condescending "note to juries"; I consider that a far more hideable "offense" than the post we're voting on.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This whole thread is a steaming pile. I'm not going to vote to hide one post.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Meh, nothing here of interest.

160. They should have been throwing $100s.

Hillary wouldn't stoop to pick up ones; those are for the peasants. But were you outraged when corruption protestors showered a FIFA boss with money, or when Monsanto protestors threw dollar bills on the Senate building floor, or when Abbie Hoffman threw money onto the floor of the New York Stock Exchange? The protest was against the corruption of big money in politics, and Hillary's minions are not helping her by whining that every criticism is sexist. I will not use the term "whore," although - as I'm sure you know - it does not refer only to sex workers, but also to people and institutions who will compromise their ethics in exchange for money. It would appear, however, that when a woman compromises her political ethics for money we must dance very, very lightly - in fact, we may not mention that issue at all, lest we be called sexist.
