15. YES! I posted about this, too! Welcome to DU, SunShine22!

Glad you're here! Especially here in the Hillary Group.

I was surprised to find this HuffPo article. It's a GREAT find. It struck me as very validating - of my own views about the overkill by shall we say "overly enthusiastic" supporters of Bernie Sanders. Well, well, well, it's been noticed and NOT appreciated elsewhere than just here on DU. I've actually lost my temper here about it - the brickbats and the pile-ons and the avalanches of Bernie supporters jumping all over anyone who does not bow and scrape and genuflect. This HuffPo piece just reconfirmed all my concerns. It pointed out, accurately I think, that all they're doing is alienating people he's going to need if he winds up as the Democratic nominee. And that's what some of us here have tried to point out, too. I used to like him a lot. But some of his supporters have really started to push me away. Bernie-Bullying is a good word for it.

From the link:

"If Bernie Sanders is to be the Democratic candidate in the presidential election, having a cadre of mouth-breathing thugs as his posse is not, I'd presume, the image he'd choose to convey."

They even come into this group (a supposedly protected group) and start up with it. And then they're so quick to complain about how horrible Hillary supporters have supposedly been to them. Where? Seriously. WHERE has that happened? WHO'S behaving that way from the Hillary camp? I sure haven't seen it. I don't know what they're talking about! The author of the HuffPo piece seems to agree. To his credit, Bernie Sanders hasn't gone there, but too many of his supporters certainly have. And they ARE making him look bad.

Then again, some of them may not even be real Democrats, but GOP trolls trying to stir up shit. There's a National Review article exhorting republi-CONS to do exactly that.

Looks like it's starting to become "a thing."
