Lookouts and obvious slandering.

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

So let me get something straight. The primaries are not yet over, Bernie has said multiple times that he intends to carry this to the convention, and the convention's not for a decent while-- so why is the slander coming already? "Be on the lookout for "Democrats" who still post negative things about Clinton" we're posting negative things because we have been given no reason to trust her. Maybe the high road is accepting on blind faith that Clinton's track record won't be followed if she were to get the White House. But I've learned on this site, taking the high road doesn't mean a good goddamn thing anymore. "Be on the lookout". To sum this up:

"If they don't believe sunshine and rainbows fall from Clinton's lips every time she speaks based on an arbitrarily decided time limit that somehow doesn't jive right with the actual end of the primaries, then they're not just not a democrat, but a right-wing operative who deserves to be silenced"?

Excellent dividing of an already fracturing party. Just-- bravo. Ratfucker Rove couldn't do a better job.

2. I see this common tactic here daily:

Clinton is pure evil and anyone who fights that narrative is "dividing the party"


Fuck that shit. You don't get to slap Clinton supporters around and then cry "you better be nice to me or I won't vote for Clinton" when they respond.

Threaten all you want,I'm not buying this juvenile passive aggressive bullshit. Don't vote for her if you don't want to.Problem solved.

4. Exactly!

 

And that is what Bernie-ites try to do. Most wouldn't even vote for him in the general election because by then they will have lost interest.

6. "...lost interest"? After waiting decades for a serious liberal to show up, I'd lose interest?

Perhaps politics is just a football game to you, but to me it's about moral principles. That is how I vote and why I vote. It's not entertainment.

5. Exactly

Those who make those threats never were going to vote for her, no matter what. Hell most of them probably work for Karl Rove.

8. The Love it or Leave it, Loyalty Oath, wing of the party demands obedience and silence.

 

They're frustrated and angry that some of us won't hold our noses and settle for the "lesser of two evils" on demand.
