SC newspaper: "Bernie fans starting to sound like Trump"

I won't be sticking around here to answer the certain avalanche of criticism over this post, but wanted both sides to see the perspective from a Charleston SC journalist who is often criticized for his Democratic and Progressive slant on current events.

What is this strange place?

This alternate universe called The Lounge where everyone does not seem to hate each other like in General Discussion: Primaries.
Don't you know that the other side is evil and intent on destroying our way of life? How can you be so cheerful here (and can I hide here for while? It's brutal in the other forums.)
