before i read a thread in GD primaries i look

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Sissyk (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

at who the poster is supporting. if it's bernie i will not read it. i've had enough of hillary bashing to last me a lifetime.

that being said if bernie is the nominee he will get my vote.

16. They drop to the bottom of GDP like stones thrown in a lake ... thanks to ...

... the endless anti-Hillary OPs.

I bet the ratio is about 8 to 1 or higher.

2. And I tend to read most of them

 

though if they come from any of the usual propaganda sites. (on both sides) I don't read it either. I have found BETTER and MORE BALANCED coverage of the US Election though, in the BBC and other foreign sites. It is not a game outside the US.

6. I don't. I rarely look at the author's name when I open a thread.

 

The title is what draws me in.

Also, I am not sick of the bashing from either side. It's Primary Season, after all. I think it's when DU is at it's best. So much passion.

26. And you must make a distinction between "bashing" and talking about "issues"

 

There has been almost no bashing by Bernie people. Bashing is what the Republican candidates are doing. If Hillary people think this is bashing, what will they think if Hillary gets to the General? Wow!

17. it's not being deaf. let's face it --

about 85% of DUers are bernie supporters. i've heard all the negatives about hillary, but i'm sure someone will come up with more.

14. I have so many Hillary supporters on ignore that this is not a problem for me.

 

A few have escaped the net. I also put pledge-y things, no matter how sweetly and plaintively written, on trash. 'bye.

19. I look at the author and can usually predict what I'll find.

I bet if you ask certain Bernie supporters to create an OP that lists their last 10 OPs, it would be 8 or 9 to 1 anti-Hillary versus pro-Bernie OPs.

Sleeping is something I don't get enough of as it is.

21. And by "Hillary bashing" you mean talking about issues.

 

I don't generally bother reading the Hillary posts because they are pretty much empty of content but full of attitude. Like this one. See, it's about nothing but someone's attitude not any discussion of what issue they support from their candidate or any issue they disagree with against Bernie, just full of empty attitude.
That sums up the whole campaign. . . .

28. and the bernie posts? seems they just

bash hillary. talk about content -- bernie has a few things to say and that's it. everytime i watch him it's like a re-run. when i listen to hillary i keep hearing new things -- like how she's going to solve problems. it would be pointless for her supporters to post all of what she's going to do because we know she'll just get trashed.

that being said -- bernie has some great ideas, but if he's elected they'll never get passed. that's the reason hillary has my support.

25. many groups on DU have similar posts almost daily, another Disguised post, surprised? Not....

That being said, the one that wins the Dem nomination has my vote, the alternates are extremely disturbing to even consider from the GOP....
