Fantasy memes and real targets

First the memes. We've all heard them. "Anointed One", "because it's her turn", "inevitable", and the list goes on. On that issue, it emphasizes the blatant dishonesty by trying, and not successfully, to convince people they were invented by Hillary's supporters to instill hopelessness in those who support another candidate, but I'm sure at this point everyone knows where the memes originated. That's what you call desperation.
Now for the targets. Whether pro-Hillary or anti Hillary, it doesn't take long for those threads to devolve into a headlong race to see who can outdo the other in what I'm sure they perceive as being clever in the smears against Hillary. (With the exception of this group)I believe she is the secondary target, and the nastiness is directed at her supporters in an obvious attempt to circumvent a direct attack. They are not going after Clinton, they are going after you. The main reason? Certainly not out of support for their chosen candidate, but out of a desire to somehow hold themselves above others morally, and, here we go again, to make others feel a hopelessness for their cause. Bottom line for me? Their entire shtick is based upon, you guessed it. Hopelessness. That's what I have to say, and I feel better having said it. As always, this post, and it's fate is left up to the hosts of this group. Disclaimer: These statements are not directed toward any person who does not fit the above description.

I have often stated....

I have often stated that many of the Sanders supporter's, to put it mildly, dislike of HRC seems to outweigh the importance of their efforts to promote him. If you haven't noticed, which I suspect all of you have, seems every pro Sanders thread is immediately, if not eventually, dominated by smearing HRC. I don't see that in pro Hillary threads. What I do see, as if their own threads are not enough, are all out attempts to hijack those threads, not with valid criticism, nor with any positive defense of their chosen candidate, but with, you guessed it, more fox/repuggish style smearing. I do believe the worst thing a Clinton supporter has said about Bernie is probably nicer than the best thing many of his supporters have said about Hillary. I am a Hillary supporter, and I am not anti-Bernie Sanders. I am a Democrat.
If anyone in this group thinks that I have gone too far with my opinion, I will delete, and relegate myself back to observer status confident that this group will stay above the fray, and continue to fight the good fight without my shoot from the hip input. (as if y'all ever needed it )
Let me state that this does not apply to all of Bernie's supporters. Being from the south, I don't want to be accused of something I find rather shallow, and offensive. That would be the "broad blanket" toss. Thanks to all
