Sanders people: Stop engaging on "corporate whores"

It's an intentional waste of time. It happens every day. To every move by Sanders or anyone associated with him, some smear will be applied. Figure it out. Talk about issues, issues, issues. War and peace. Truth and lies. Social Security, education, health care and peace. Corporate power. Climate change. Fracking. A corrupt process that allows corporations and rich people to buy politicians' loyalties with legalized bribery - call that what you will. No more of this personal bullshit!

If no one at the enormous Washington Square Park rally had said anything but "flowers," the RBRB (Rovian Brock Ratfucker Brigade) would be doing this fainting couch routine about how flowers are sexist, racist, violent and dishonest. Why do you think that is? Because sexist, racist, violent, dishonest (and as we've seen even Nazi!) are the shock words deployed by this brand of gutter politics.

What do you think they're going to say, "We disagree with tuition-free college and saving Social Security?" That's what they've got: attack words. If they took these terms at face value for the true horrors they actually represented, they would not debase them through trivial use.

No one outside Clinton village gives a shit about this round, by the way. If anything it will backfire. Let them promote (the lie) that Sanders personally called politicians including Clinton corporate whores. Do you think this loses votes? We are not going through a very politician-loving moment of our history.

2. Amen. My guess is that a true ratfucking operation would also send "Bernie supporters"

to keep fueling the bullshit.

Dr Paul Song apologized. Bernie apologized.

5. "No one outside Clinton village gives a shit about this round" exactly!

They think it will cause a baclklish against Bernie but in reality the people outside the Clinton bubble will just think they are batshit fucking insane. Who in hell cares if people harshly criticize corriupt politicians?

7. Yes! Don't argue with bullshit

Ask yourself before engaging: "Are we closer to winning by proving this jerk is wrong?"
If the answer is "No" ignore it and move on.

Let them flatulate among themselves in their own echo chamber.

10. Excellent, concise standard for checking.

 

Are we closer to winning proving this jerk wrong?

If the answer is No ignore it and GO PHONE BANK or something else constructive.

16. We won that one. You've got to push straight back at these people, stiff-arm style.

 

Going around the side or doing something nuanced doesn't normally work. Push 'em straight back to the river, no quarter, etc.
