Sander's hypocrisy concerning primaries

I'm putting this here simply because I don't feel like wading through the river of denial.😛

I’m Sorry Sanders Supporters, but Bernie is Being Fairly Hypocritical on a Few Things

May 30, 2016 By Allen Clifton

I have been critical of some of Bernie Sanders’ tactics over the past year, I still do think he’s a good guy who has a lot of great intentions. I don’t agree with all of his policy stances, but I do agree with most of them. If he ended up being the Democratic nominee this year, I would proudly fight for and support him just as I would Hillary Clinton or pretty much any solid Democratic candidate.

Look, if you’re someone who honestly believes the system is “rigged” against Sanders, or “voter fraud” gave Clinton wins in New York, Arizona and Nevada, then stop reading this now. Nothing I say is going to convince you that you’re wrong. Heck, even when FiveThirtyEight.com (a website that does nothing but statistically break down things) used indisputable math to prove that the system isn’t “rigged” against Sanders — many called them a “shill for Clinton.” That’s what I mean when I say a lot of people really don’t want facts, they just want to be told what they want to hear. But the truth of the matter is, Sanders is being rather hypocritical with his criticism of the primary process and superdelegetes.

not a single one

Scrolled down the entire first page of latest threads and not one for Bernie among them with the majority being attacks on Hillary Clinton. I thought this was one but it turns out to be just another attack.


For some it seems the desire to see Trump beat Hillary has overshadowed any desire to see Bernie Sanders elected president.

To be fair the poster did mention something about Bernie and $15 an hour.
