First they ignore you...

First they you

Then they at you

Then they call you a far fringe left Paulbot racist Snowdenista rancid hater!

Then everyone realizes it's agenda-driven bullshit

Then you WIN!

To all my dismal friends, just know that with your ceaseless moaning and complaining, you have pulled the establishment (kicking and screaming) to the LEFT.

So never EVER shut the fuck up!!

Nothing in either of those OPs describe me, yet I have this suspicion they are aimed at Bernie's supporters. That because we have legitimate concerns that we are somehow rancid now and don't understand the complexities of making decisions. That we demand purity from candidates and that we are anti-Obama or anti-Hillary because we bring up legitimate issues. As for Obama I like him I think he is a great president and I would vote for him again. I don't think he is perfect and I would rather have a more liberal president. But, the reality is that there are not very many Bernie Sanders in the world so yes, I realize I must be pragmatic and I would prefer to have the lesser of two evils rather than the greater of two evils, because I remember Reagan and how his presidency has led to so much death and destruction. As for Hillary if she gets the nomination I will cross that bridge when I get to it. I am not going to hide that I am extremely happy to be campaigning for Bernie and I consider him to be the as ideal as it is possible to be and still be human another words he has flaws and I know that.

Income equality in particular among another things. Think about that: on a so-called Democratic board, saying you are for economic justice gets you labeled an MRA racist. I have been called both.

There was a thread that Sanders and his supporters don't care about African Americans because they talk about economic issues and because black people living in poverty aren't as poor as Africans. People cheered and applauded that thread. I still can't believe it.

And then we are treated to thread after thread of how *mean* Sanders supporters are while they are throwing bombs all over the place.

They hypocrisy is stunning and I have not seen it's like many times in my life.

I have read thread after thread accusing Bernie's supporters of trashing the front runner,
But Brother, I ain't see in' it.
