If you blame Bernie or Bust, call it what it is

Blaming the victim. See how far that goes. (I hope you don't)

If the democratic party fails to get votes, the onus is on them and nobody else.

I could be a PUMA, I was a straight Democratic ticket, vote in every election kind of voter.


Not so firmly planted anymore.

LGBT rights, equal pay, healthcare and abortion rights are fucking toast if we let Republicans very into office.

"Victims"? Of what? Not getting their fucking way?

I am not "blaming" them for anything except being assholes.

Most Bernie or bust are of course people who wont be affected, which is why they are.

Like I dont get how the worst act of violence so far in a Trump rally is at the hands of a POC, what in the world is in his head?

34. Tell us besides Marriage Equality

 

how so much better it has been for us minorities (Latina) since 92. The party talks big, but it hasn't turned over the Patriot act, death by authorities hasn't gone down. Women's right over her body?

We look so much like them, they are not afraid of our politicians because we cave. Spineless!

10. In my opinion,

the "Bernie or Bust" bit distracts from the important point made in the OP. It is 100% Hillary Clinton's responsibility to earn each and every vote that she gets. No person owes her a vote.

11. It's the usual "blame the Left" meme common here when the moderates' candidate loses.

 

It's funny they don't blame the moderate Democrats who actually vote for Republicans.

16. I say it's what any LOSING candidate does. . . blame their opponent.

 

If you can't get others to vote for you, then it is YOU who have failed. Every loser does so because people won't vote for them. There is nothing new here. Except they already seem to be looking for people to blame when they lose.

Hasn't the DNC LOST over 900 seats since DWS has been in charge.
Well, we found out what she excels at . . . LOSING.

37. Depressed turnout on the left could play a role in November.

If Hillary can't get out the vote, that's on her. The warning signs from the left are out there for all to see. So, those backing Hillary should know that this is a risk. Of course, it's their prerogative to cast a vote for Hillary in the primary, but it shouldn't come as a surprise if this affects the outcome in the general.

38. My concern is that libertyblitzkrieg tracks back to longtime Rand Paul activists.

And that makes the sincerity of their position highly doubtful.

I mean, go ahead and write-in your choice when you feel strongly. I think that is good and right, well, unless you're in a purple state like me. BUT, trying to make a high-profile movement of it smacks of political opportunism by people who are NOT REALLY on the same side…..but, they play it on the internet.

and blame him. If she is the nominee, the hypocrisy will be hilarious in blaming us for her getting fewer votes.
