Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

I think I understand the Bernie bro thing now

Let me start off by saying I was all-in for Bernie in 2016. I caucused for him here in Washington State. And although I was seriously disappointed when he didn't get the nomination there was absolutely no question that I would be voting blue.

Last night I was playing my video game like I do, talking with my friends on discord like I do, because I'm a nerd LOL..
And this guy that I don't know too well, apparently intoxicated, was going on about how Warren stabbed Bernie in the back and she stole all his policies and then wouldn't back them up or some BS like that.... We bantered back and forth....but then he started getting really pissed off and saying things like 'Rome needs to burn and then be built back up' (to which I said 'okay Steve Bannon') and Bernie would have won if Hillary wasn't such a war hawk..... And Biden is blah blah blah..... But he professed himself to be a progressive....But the entire conversation he's bashing the Democrats left and right.... Says absolutely nothing bad about Trump or Republicans.....

So I started pressing him on platform and not the person..... And I asked him if Bernie doesn't get the nomination would he vote for the nominee and he said no!! He said he would vote for Trump or maybe just sit it out!! Of course I nearly shit myself.... So at this point I'm pissed off and I said I support the platform no matter who the nominee is...He says 'I Don't!'

So then I asked him who he voted for in 2016.... He said Trump because Hillary blah blah blah!!! So I told him he's not a progressive at all he's a trump chump and a shit disturber... Then I hung up on his ass lol

So this is the fundamental problem I have with Bernie..... It's not actually him..... But many of the people who support him are actually Trump refugees...... They are just extremists... They just want to see the whole ship sink so to speak.....

This is exactly why I couldn't support Bernie this time.... Because I don't want people like that guy on my side.....

1. Well, he really did burn it all down

 

Voting for Trump in 2016 was part of a strategy. Burn the house down. And that's sure been helpful. We've got children in cages, extreme right-wingers on the Supreme Court, no allies (except a few tin-pan dictators), and failed coronavirus strategy. To name just a few.

These people are crazy, and belong together with the Trump camp.

25. That's kind of the point. They're not votes we're going to get.

 

A subset of Sanders supporters was never going to accept anyone other than Sanders in the top spot, and they were always likely going to stay home or whatever in November.

Some of them, like Sanders supporters' local favorite Krystal Ball, have been quite open about it.

5. these "Bernie Bros" are real

 

For every 10 "Bernie bros"'s comment, while I think there are definitely russian trolls and republican pretenders, there are at least 1 or 2 that are real life people. When I refer to "Bernie Bros", I don't mean every single Bernie supporters, it is the "Bernie or Buster" or "Never Biden" people.

And I don't blame Bernie for "Bernie Bros" because I know he can't control Russian trolls and republican pretenders online. What I blame Bernie for is continuing to hire "Bernie Bros" as his campaign manager and surrogates and peddle right wing attacks. They just amplify the message to their supporters.

7. This is why revolutions have been bloody

 

The end justifies the means. Accept collateral damage. Keep your eyes on the prize, etc.

Except, we are still a democracy and most of us do not want a revolution. Most do not hate the rich; they want to be rich.

During the great recession some journalist went to talk the "man in the street" and asked about how best to cut the pie. And a young woman going to a movie with her friends laughed and said: I don't want to cut the pie; I want all of it.

This is where Sanders, if he is honest enough, should come out and exhort his supporters to go out and vote for Biden. Specifically condemn the ones who would stay home or vote for Trump.

10. "They are just extremists"

 

That has been my experience with many of them. They don't necessarily care all that much about the issues, they need to be against something. Once they get caught up in their causes, they put their blinders on. It seems to be some kind of adrenaline high for them. If they weren't involved in a political campaign, it probably would be something else.

12. They're fauxgressives. I've noticed the same thing on Youtube

 

I've noticed the same thing on Youtube on the comment section of the extremely pro-Bernie The Young Turks channel. They say that if they can't have Bernie that they'll vote for Trump. Which seems pretty odd when you think about it as both Bernie and Trump are far part from each other on the political spectrum. However, their logic seems to be that if they destroy the democratic party it will make it easier for them to rebuild it in their image.

For starters, I would never vote for Trump. I have never voted for a Republican in my life and I never will. I have nothing but disdain for the right, whether right leaning or right in the extreme.

I abhor authoritarianism, whether on the left or the right. To flat out equate the far left with the far right is just flat out wrong and insulting.

14. This Is Why Bernie Is Ultimately Toxic

 

His whole campaign is built around fostering resentment of Democrats, which makes no sense when Republicans control the Senate, White House and Courts. So, of course, if Bernie does not win, some may not vote for Democrats.

Of course, this is what ultimately repeals a lot of Democrats. Trashing Democrats will ultimately alienate the party he Hope's to lead.

This is why I think Bernie is used as a tool by Republicans and Russians. His attacks on Democrats are easy to exploit to generate divisiveness.

19. And he's let all this go to his head.

 

What really clarified it for me was a moment in 2016 when he got off that campaign plane in the middle of the night and a small enthusiastic crowd of mostly young people met him on the tarmac. He said ďI feel like a rock star.Ē

So a bent-over little old man whose next age milestone will be 80, whoís spent a lifetime kvetching and scolding and complaining from the sidelines gets a drive-by of the Fountain of Youth. And sudden tons of attention and mass-adulation. For the first time in his life. The spotlight! More like a whole big bunch of Ďem! And all the cameras and microphones - FINALLY ďcoming to their sensesĒ and seeking HIM out, at long last! And it goes straight to his head.

I think itís his artificially-inflated ego weíre seeing and hearing, thatís making all the noise. Itís a drug. And he got addicted to it back in 2015 and 16. And heís back for another fix this year. And if he lives, heíll probably want more in 2024 which will lead him to try to primary the Dem in the White House (presumably Biden) or yet another run if weíre unfortunate enough to have trump cheat his way back in.

welcoming them. It's about them using him as a pretext for shutting down the Democratic Party in general.

Bernie would not approve. So this doesn't reflect on him. He can only be so careful.

He's not alone. And he's not the first. Many big tent candidates from our party in the past have been used as 'marks' by bad faith players and impatient, hyperprecious "burn it down" snots.

You've done the right thing. Tell these stupids to go suck it.

26. Logical fallacy of small sample size

 

Sorry, but the folks I know are stuck on the issues. Not winning, not the party, but the issues.
For me, we have been losing ground on environmental issues since 1980, with a major set back when Gingrich and crew got elected.
It may make you feel better about your switch to paint the candidate in a negative light based on one person, but I have yet to see a forum here where the candidates have been compared based on policy. That is why I've been doing my reading on that elsewhere.
If you base your choice on the behavior of a few supporters, no candidate is going to hold up, no even yours.

30. Issues are a factor, but ...

 

When I vote, I'm voting for a person, not a platform. Others may very well be different, and I accept that, but I've found over the years that someone who is a great prophet (which Sanders is) often tend not to be well suited as leaders precisely because they lack the flexibility that you need in a position like POTUS.

I've been all over the map this season - I liked Harris, I liked Warren, I even admired some things that Bloomberg had to say. I have reservations about Biden, but mostly due to his age (which I believe are applicable to Sanders, Warren and Bloomberg as well). What made a difference to me about Biden, however, was that he was able to form a coalition. That's what a Democratic president needs to be able to do. Most truly good presidents were people who were able to keep a coalition together, to get consensus on a single direction from multiple stakeholders across all portions of the political spectrum. Sanders has some interesting goals, but as a person, he's caustic, self-centered and dangerously resistant to ideas that aren't his own.

Not all Sanders followers are Bernie Bros, not by a long shot, but the ones that he surrounds himself with typically carry the same attitude he does - burn it all down. He's too late - the country is already burning, already running a fever, and there's no real guarantee that it will survive the disease. This is not a stable basis for a society long term.

35. I'm more of a loner, so I don't tend to view things from the stand point of coalition building...

 

so it is rarely a factor in my choices, but I just saw an article that was making that point based on the show "Survivor" (which I never watch).
It is odd the things academics will choose to study, but someone wrote a paper saying that the strength of most winners was the ability to build coalitions.
But on the other hand, DC is a bit of bubble and I have read that most politicians view the public as far more conservative than it really is, and many of the coalitions built are with the 1% crowd.
So whether incremental progress is possible as many here say, or it will require a "revolution" as Chris Hedges says, is hard to determine. If I was positive that incremental progress was possible (which I haven't seen) I could get behind the full agenda. But especially on the issues that I consider critical, it has been a slow decline.

44. Is it now? The Reason Why Biden Is Doing Better Than Bernie...

 

...is because it appears that he is cutting deep into Bernie's prior advantage with the Bros.

34. I had a similar

 

discussion with one of my nephew's self-identified Bernie-bro friends in 2016. He just wanted to tear it all to the ground but had no clue of how or what to build in its place. He couldn't really articulate what his anger was based on. I quit trying to have a conversation with him because those conversations tended to become circular.

40. knuckleheads

 

This is Bernieís responsibility to tell those knuckleheads to get some sanity and get in-line and vote for Biden or go to HELL.

He has to tell them something like that or he's a piece of sh___ himself and is running on his ego.

He wasnít for Hillary enough thatís why I never trusted Bernie, although I like his policies. (but Trump is a generational, almost apocalyptic evil) that its no time for political dogma, Trump must be beaten or the world might really collapse.

43. Someone close to me

 

Sat out 2016. Bernie supporter. Very knowledgeable democrat with long record of voting blue. I was appalled. It has scarred me honestly. And it has perplexed me regarding what is going on. As in, what percent is the person you describe, what percent is passive agressive, what percent moves over to vote for the nominee.
