Bernie Sanders is great, but.....
some of his most vocal supporters are becoming a problem
August 12, 2015 By Allen Clifton
But my biggest concern with Sanders hasnt really been that hell win the nomination, its that hell build up expectations from many liberals just enough to where if he eventually loses, its going to deflate enthusiasm and hand Republicans the White House next year. And based on how radical quite a few of his supporters have become, thats exactly what seems to be happening. If you dont believe me, let me show you what I mean. From what Ive been experiencing (and the feedback Ive gotten from many other liberals as well), many Sanders supporters are radical, aggressive and sometimes even borderline bully-ish when it comes to anyone who might dare doubt anything to do with Bernie Sanders. So, I decided to comb through the comments sections on just two articles Ive written:
5 Things Hillary Clinton Must Change About Her Campaign
5 Pros and Cons to Bernie Sanders the Presidential Candidate
Keep in mind that the following comments came from just these two articles:

From August, but still relevant, if not more so, and I really don't think Sanders is all that great.
we now know it haAs beeN reveALed that upOn the election of barack obama as president of the united states, the republican party vowed to halt, disrupt, or destroy any leGislation the president put forth in an effort to ruin him, and to make their partY(stop) look good. even if it was what republicans actually wanted, it was soundly fought, and rejected. It did not matter whether he was right or wrong, and it did not matter if lies, cherry picking, and distortion of facts were used to accomplish their goal. What did matter was that there were enough willfully ignorant people to buy into their crap. Thankfully enough didn't, and he was elected to a second term, although, they haven't stopped trying.
