To other bernie supporters

I think it's about time for me to leave DU.

I am being personally attacked.i have from 1992 to 2014 voted dem every election but i according to some not real liberal or
progressive

a so called neutral poster keeps going around calling us all racists.

I dislike clinton almost as much as i hate republican party.

I see little difference between clinton and GOP.do i really have to run down why i feel like that.

I live in missouri.as liberal my vote is already basically useless already.

I will vote In Missouri primary for bernie but after that stay home in november.noone worth voting for in missouri with clinton as
nominee.

I still believe in all the things i always did but democratic party doesn't believe in them and GOP sure doesn't.

When people say SC remember obama is considering a republican for SC.

As disabled american this is personal for me since social safety net is under attack and only one candidate for president would defend it and it sure isn't clinton.

The enitre democratic party must agree with bill clinton we are just like tea party so why would they want our vote.

We need every body here to fight the good fight FOR Bernie.

If you leave it is a voice that is needed but not heard.

people like you throwing in the towel after this small blip.

What are we a bunch of wimps!

Like Rocky throwing in the towel in the 2nd round.

Buck up people!!!!!!

This fight goes the full 12 rounds.

If not now when?

You might as well go home and vote for a fascist regime. Because that's what you are doing.

doesn't know what s/he's talking about. Don't let them get to you. Take a break but please don't leave permanently.

P.S. If that person's posting in GD-P - don't go there. Just trash the group and put them on ignore.

your sanity. I'm African American and the African American group banned me for voicing opposition to our community's misguided loyalty to the Clintons. I'm as left, progressive, radical as one can be, so these Hillary supporters can miss me with their questioning of my bone fides.

Just take a break if you need it. As a person with a disability, your perspective and your voice is an important one.

14. I've only been here a few days but am starting to wear out Full Ignore and Trash Thread

I think there are a lot of Clintonistas here who are getting marching orders via blast emails or texts because their tactics are virtually identical. And there's never any discussion of actual issues or past records. They avoid that like the plague. There is at least one who does nothing but start trolling threads and never even comes back to them.

I've started trashing any loyalty oath thread I see, or anything that even looks like one.

so it's time to go outside for a break. Take as much time as you need--my longest has been 5 months.

Then come back with a new perspective.

While I'm a Sanders supporter, I don't have the antipathy to Clinton that many have. Do I want to have to vote for her? NO! However, I realize that we can survive another Goldman Sachs administration a little better than we could survive any of the horrors the Republicans are likely to run.

There is a difference between actively attacking veterans' benefits (GOP) and not fighting for them strongly enough (Clinton). Hard to see when it's your ass on the line, but you'd lose less with her.

Then again, I'd vote for a cow pat if it had a (D) after it.

ETA: Trash GD . You'll thank yourself.

were sexist and misogynistic. lol.
They say that after their campaign told us we were going to burn in hell. And argue with me - a woman!!

I'm 1/4 Latino and was told I hate Latinos because I spoke out against Dolores Huerta.

And now we are being called racists because Bernie lost SC.

I don't get it.

And I don't get the posts out there where they are being sore winners!!

We're all in this together. We have your back.

18. Don't leave!

As others have stated, take a break for a couple days. Stay completely off DU until 6 PM on Super Tuesday, for example--or longer, if you feel you need it.

When you return, consider this place, especially GDP, an exercise in keeping one's cool and being able to let things go. Several times I've had to post something to the effect of, "Look, I'm interested in exchanging thoughts and ideas, not trading insults. This dialogue isn't serving any constructive purpose, so have a good day." Inevitably, the other person will respond to this reasonable statement with some childish taunt; expect that and ignore it when it happens.

Don't leave. DU needs people who care about Bernie Sanders. There may come a point when it's sensible to leave DU, but we're not anywhere near there yet.

I am so sick and tired today of being called a racist by clinton supporters.

yeah i am so racist that i have voted for blacks for congress here in missouri and voted for obama in primary and in ge twice.

I am sick of the BS too that clinton is progressive and will fight for things bernie did.more BS.but,we knew that.

Personaly tacking me like they do plus me knowing as disabled american i will be screwed over by clinton is why i won't vote for her.My vote can't be bought.
