YAY! My Aunt in NY, a Hillary supporter is now a BERNER! Here's why...

The debates.

She said something not so nice to me when she thought Bernie didin't want to debate her in NH. I explained he's so far ahead, and she can shave a few points, it's the nature of it all, and get a few more delegates. She still thought he should have said yes. Then I went over the debate schedule, and she knew nothing about this!
I explained why Bernie said no. Then I explained he put conditions on, that she agreed to. A New York debate. Funny, of the three, that one just didn't get scheduled.

It's not just about looking weak, it's about her word and being a hypocrite. She can't stand those! Now my Aunt Kristine says she no longer trusts her, with very serious issues.

AUNT KRISTINE IS NOW A BERNER IN NEW YORK!!!

My point in posting this, is because there must be more like her since Finney came out and spoke on this.

31. Then why are you feeding her lies? Bernie himself said Hilary never agreed to a NY debate!

 

You feed your Aunt a lie to convince her Hillary is a liar? Seriously? I know you will call her up and direct her to Bernie;s website for the truth!

Seven hides so far! Insulting DUers left and right. Promises to keep insulting people if they don't like the candidate they support. Bluntly insulting people by lying about them "having a problem with smart successful women" - save us, Skinner! If five hides is too many, can you PLEASE investigate the folks with SEVEN?

33. Sanders has nothing to do with the rude and uncivil content

 

of your posts. You have SEVEN HIDES and frankly should have more. I have bluntly called you a misogynist based on the insult of implying ANYONE on this board has a problem with "smart, successful women" and that is just one of the incredibly SLIMEY things you have said to posters.

The idea behind a hide is to let you know the content of your post is INAPPROPRIATE on DU. Your opinions and posititions are NOT the problem - the fact that you seem to be taking your STYLE from Donald Trump with personal attacks and vile insults IS.

Everyone has a bad moment or two when it may be necessary to walk away from the keyboard, and the "Trash & Ignore" features exist for a reason. HOWEVER, if you are really here to engage in DISCUSSION, I am telling you - as a total stranger on the internet, who has participated on this message board with some reasonable success - that insulting other people is NOT APPROPRIATE.

It makes you sound like a junior high school TROLL instead of a reasonable adult.

That may be the image you wish to project, but I doubt it.

And behaving with courtesy and respect to those with different opinions has NOTHING to do with either Hillary or Bernie. It is about how YOU demonstrate your civic responsibilities.

Lecture done, with one last bit: I think you owe several people an apology. If you would like to take a moment (because maybe I got through to you?) and do that - either via PM or in public, I will be happy to self-delete this scolding. If not, I will leave it, and use your behavior as incentive to start a petition to permanently ban posters who simply cannot behave with basic courtesy. I will use YOUR POSTS as an example of the egregious abuse of the existing hide clemency program.

I trust you will do the right thing.

started out at the peak of her popularity. She does not attract new voters. There is nowhere for her to go but down...

16. The polls do not agree with you about Hillary gaining support; just the opposite.

And the polls also show that more of his supporters would choose Bernie over Hillary if he weren't in the race.

22. Nate silver is not saying Hillary will be President, and he's certainly not saying she'll get there

with record-breaking pledged delegates. He gives her a stronger chance but it's not over.

25. You might want to tell your Aunt that *according to Bernie* she never agreed to a NY debate....

 

I know other places are lying about it, but it says so on his web site.
Ironic you inadvertently LIED to your Aunt and caused her to MISTAKENLY think Hillary was the liar- when it's actually you.
Since integrity is so important to you both- I am sure you will correct the record- and apologies for spreading lies here too.

"Our campaign has repeatedly asked Hillary Clinton to debate in New York before the primary, but they haven't agreed to it. We're not sure why."

Tell your Aunt the TRUTH.
