Response to berni_mccoy (Reply #43)

108. You don't care that Russians interfered in the election?

Because you aren't a "Hillary fan"? 67 million Americans voted for Clinton. They and everyone else who cares at all about democracy and national security cares about that interference. As for "not getting anywhere," Mueller is dealing with that. I'm sorry to disappoint you, but they have Manafort dead to rights. I understand that some Trump voters don't like to come to terms with the fact they were played by the Russians, or simply don't care that our electoral system is no longer ours because the result was the White Supremacist they so badly wanted to hold office, but the rest of the country does care. Meanwhile, you keep focused on Bernie. That election that you think was perfectly "fair," has resulted in Trump taking action today that will ensure low income Americans no longer have access to healthcare and that many will die. DACA recipients are being thrown out of the country, and Trump is poised to start a nuclear war that will kill millions--all due to Russian annihilation. But what bothers you is that someone made a stupid sign with Bernie's name on it, which in your mind justifies or obviates the Kremlin attack on our electoral system. Millions of lives vs. Bernie's career, and your priority is the latter.

I don't suppose it has occurred to you that there is a disconnect between your priority on one's politician's political prospects and your disregard for the integrity of electoral democracy. How exactly do you suppose Bernie could become president without elections not subject to Kremlin interference? And just what do you think he would rule over if Trump succeeds in starting a nuclear war with a country with the capacity to launch nukes that reach US soil?

Meanwhile, the poor and marginalized are suffering, but none of that matters because they are mere "Hillary fans." The 67 million Americans who voted for Clinton along with the additional Republicans and independents who care about the integrity of electoral democracy, "will never get anywhere" with their concern for electoral democracy "will get no where" because you saw a sign that takes Sanders's name in vain.

So you go ahead and remain focused on your petty animosities toward Clinton voters. The rest of us are going to try to keep this country from descending into fascism and the word from facing nuclear Armageddon. You've got smaller things to focus on, and far be it from me to try to convince you that democracy or human lives matter.

For the record, I would not have included Bernie on such a sign. I would have dedicated it to the white males who voted for Trump and decided this election. And of course that includes the fascist collaborators who chose to inflict suffering and death on others to satisfy their own narcissistic egos.
