MSNBC Live just reported that Bernie Supporters on line are flooding the internet with sexist....

misogynistic posts that makes it logical for Hillary to play the "Woman" card! That's the first time I have ever heard Bernie's supporters called out on the air that way..

They even said that Bernie should get his supporters under control because they are really hurting him.

It came right before Hard Ball started. I will try to get the segment but if anyone finds it, please post it.

The perfect answer to "Bernie isn't sexist"....maybe... but apparently the media has noticed that many of his supporters are, and are loud about it!

100. Who would benefit the most?

"Would it be...O'Malley supporters?"
(Please tell me that's a joke!)
Who benefits? Republicans. Don't put it past them. We already know that the Kochs are spending unbelievable amounts of dark money on this election.
I've seen outright lies posted about HRC. (I'm a Bernie person, but I'll vote for whichever Democrat takes the primary). Purported democrats are posting they will either stay home or write in Bernie's name rather than vote for Hillary.
Please, guys, think about this. Who stands to benefit? It's not O'Malley. It's the Republicans. They specialize in character assassinations.
Is anyone else old enough to remember Lee Atwater?
When he was dying of brain cancer, he had pangs of conscience over the tactics he used to get Reagan elected. He admitted that he used every dirty trick, every sleazy tactic he could think of. He admitted to using lies, slander, etc. And Atwater was tame compared to the Koch brothers.
The same family that founded and bankrolled the John Birch Society founded and bankrolled the Tea Party. They have used every smear tactic at their disposal against Obama. When it comes to Clinton, they've already said it will be gloves off.

9. Just like with BLM, his supporters haven't reached acceptance yet. It makes him look bad. That's..

the problem with pulling all of these "former" Libertarians into left leaning politics. They don't know how to behave unless someone "leads" them.



"These gender dynamics could have an unfortunate downside, however. Sanders went after Clinton hard in his speech Saturday night, and his supporters cheered every word while the Clinton supporters sat in silence. Sanders supporters are a diverse crowd, but as Suzy Khimm of the New Republic notes, a huge amount of his support comes from an Internet-savvy, cantankerous crowd of young men. It’s a crowd that’s already swapping conspiracy theories about a media plot against their candidate, as Khimm writes:

That question became pressing after the first Democratic debate aired on CNN in mid-October. When pundits everywhere hailed Clinton as the winner, and others (myself included) argued that Sanders had fallen short, the subreddit and every other social media channel went crazy with allegations that media was in the bag for Hillary Clinton. “Bernie wins EVERY poll yet CORPORATE MEDIA declares Hillary the winner !!!” one Sanders fan told me. “Are you blind or just bought? Grow a pair and admit the truth,” another wrote to Slate’s Josh Voorhees. Conspiracy theories rapidly proliferated, alleging that major outlets were deliberately undercutting Sanders by suppressing favorable poll numbers and deleting pro-Bernie comments. “We have an explicit example of the corruption of money in politics,” one Redditor wrote last week. “Time Warner is a top donor of Hillary Clinton and they own CNN, and CNN is censoring Bernie Sanders to alter his message.”

"On-line" means anonymous and this kind of conclusion, that these are Bernie fans, is not my conclusion.

columnists, news producers and on air personalities have been bombarded with hate mail and even veiled threats from Bernie supporters. We, here in the Hillary Group, are familiar with the tactics. At least here on DU there is a barely effective system to filter out the worst of the vileness. These poor reporters are getting attacked whenever they report facts that don't support the Bernie world view.

Even folks in the media who favor Sanders get some serious hate mail from folks supporting Bernie. The big deal was when Hillary won the 1st debate. Everyone who reported it got a barrage of hate on the Facebook pages, emails and their own blogs.
One of my clients told me that it reminded him of the RW hate when Obama won in 2008. Really mad!

I've been trying to figure out who these people are ever since I moved to Democratic Underground trying to get away from the worst of the behaviors exhibited by right-wing reactionaries.

According to one Pew evaluation about political types in general, I suspect at least two of the socially right-wing but economically occasionally liberal political orientations that they identified are represented here. Attacking in packs is behavior very typical of strong social conservatives, as is hostility toward anyone who isn't one of them.

30. IMO it's not on him.

It's on the supporters who act like it's no big deal or who are in denial about how bad it is. It's really fucking bad, and when I tell supporters this they get all offended and pissed off. I'm a Sanders supporter, that does not mean I can't recognize some nasty behavior within Sanders "supporting" groups (and there are some in the Hillary camp as well, of course).

It's not an insult, it's not trying to tear down supporters, it's just saying, hey, we gotta reign this shit in. Thankfully Reddit's Sanders group is realizing it and trying new stuff to reign that shit in. I wish DUer's would realize it is a really big problem. It's not an insult, but it will be taken that way. It's good to note that there are bad apples in a group, and it's good to try to work on it, even if there are some in the group who won't change. At least trying it will work.

People look to their guy to get cues about what they need to do. If the behavior is rising to the level of an actual media event, it's going to get asked about to Bernie directly on a show. Then what?

And respectfully, it isn't just a matter of reining it in at this point. Now that people know what is being "reined," it's kind of tough to unring that bell.

If Bernie is a populist and if he is really running a grass roots campaign, why can't he control his campaign? I'm going to write it in to MSNBC for their debate. It's a long shot but it might put an end to the worst of the Nazi/sexist threads.

78. Just wanted to say, internet stuff is not IRL stuff.

Not trying to be dismissive at all here, but I'm involved in IRL stuff and the internet stuff is 1000x more beyond the pale. The internet brings the worst out in people.

And I really don't think Sanders can denounce the internet stuff because the IRL supporters will feel like he's denouncing them, either directly, or indirectly because they're incapable of actually doing squat about what internet slacktivists do or say.

I realized this when some Reddit Sanders "supporters" came out and said they'd support Trump over Hillary. Fuck it. It's not possible to reason with these internet nobodies...

But yeah I know it's an issue I just don't see Sanders himself denouncing it will do much if any good at all. I'm not opposed to him trying, mind you, but I don't think it's on his radar. If he was Lessig or something I could see it being on his radar, but he's not that kind of person that I think would be that focused on internet BS. I think he actually might be insulated by his campaign staff in a way, and that's not too bothersome because a lot of politicians are not internet savvy.

So I can't rag on Sanders for not knowing this is happening or not responding to it. It is, unfortunately, what it is.

106. I don't know IF Bernie feels they work more to his benefit

or do not, but I suspect it is beyond a leader's ability to impose moderation on a type that is wired to be immoderate, hostile toward outsiders, and unreachable by reason that contradicts a cherished belief. I suspect we have a lot of social conservatives in that group wired to hostility toward outsiders, as well as the more expected left wing ideologues who see everything in black and white.

We may need to cut Bernie a break here. He also has followers who behave pretty much as any of Hillary's do. These others are a different sort of person, or different types of persons. And would we want him to cut them loose, to support maybe Cruz or Rubio, even if he could?

107. Some of them run his campaign's regional Twitter accounts.

I've seen some very intemperate remarks from some that were *representing* the campaign. Even if they are volunteers, and not paid staff, he could at least rein those folks in.



Who knows, maybe this is the kind of person he attracts, and he doesn't see anything wrong with it. I was actually trying to give him the benefit of the doubt that he'd want to halt that kind of thing.

108. Well, you provide a partial answer to my own question about

what he would want to do, Starry. He is obviously himself wired to be strongly...focused in vision and unwilling to compromise and thus may be slow to realize how damaging this kind of stuff is.

I think we can at least observe that he does attract this kind of person, though. That's settled, whatever it might mean.

when the BernieBus contingent walked out of the Iowa JJ dinner.

We've seen the same comments here on DU, possibly by the same people.

And that was a big, big mistake on their part.

I believe it marks the beginning of the end of Bernie Sanders attempted takeover of the party.

This is not the first time that other have seen Sanders supporters hurt their candidate. A Sanders supporter on this board told me that I was a bad parent because my children were supporting Hillary Clinton. These comments have no impact on who I am voting for but the concept that you can persuade someone to vote for your candidate by attacking them is not a good move

84. Bernie supporters are mansplaining to me about sexism

I was told I as a woman am sexist for voting for Hillary because she is a woman, that's the only reason I am voting for her. I was also told I was wrong to have recognized a mistake Senator Sanders made by saying "all the shouting in the world" to a woman immediately. I was told I only said that after Hillary said it which isn't true. They weren't sitting in my living room when I said he shouldn't have said that. I am just a liar who hates my own children and future grandchildren by voting for a woman just because she is a woman.

ETA I am voting for Hillary for many reasons being a woman is just a plus. Bernie's supporters helped me make that decision by the way they treated African Americans.

Clicky click spam polls are what they believe in and placing all their faith in age groups that hardly ever show up to vote.

Oh and actually believing that President Obama and Bernie are exactly the same charisma wise and with the same ability of inspiring speech.

It always takes him longer though because they are understaffed and it's busy. If somebody shoots someone or blows something up or whatever, they have to work day and night. They don't put "Live" broadcasts on their site so I think you have to know someone to get copies.
It might be fun to have because I could post it in GD too.

the ballot, apparently some are thinking this is the job of the DNC. We have to work for our candidate if we truly feel this is the candidate we want to get elected, too damn much whining and not enough time winning.
