"Supporters" has become the new Godwin's Law on DU.

Maybe we can call it the Hillary Corollary:

"As a DUer supports Hillary further and further, the probability of a wide-brush tarring of Bernie supporters approaches 1."

Seriously, even just looking at GD-P brings up about three or four different posts that do this.

I'd say that's more than enough evidence to comprise a theory here.

1. With their bandwagon nonsense, it isn't just Sanders' supporters that get the broadbrush

it is everyone. Madeline Albright made no distinction, she just said that there is a special place in Hell for every woman that doesn't vote for another woman.

They have done similar things with AA. One very annoying angle was saying "Hillary won the Black vote" which implies that AAs are one collective object to be "won" like a prize at a county fair (and they get only ONE vote).

Likely HRC went with a bandwagon campaign because of the way it works in the GE. Trump is also running a bandwagon campaign and likely both will make overt appeals to vote not so much for them but against the other one. They both have high unfavorables but Trump's are slightly higher. They are betting that HRC will stay less unfavorable than Trump through October. There will be little room for issues with 2 campaigns that are likely to be 99.5% negative.

2. I love it when they pretend they are for Bernie or are trying to decide

Then drop the passive aggressive stuff about how Bernie supporters are so tough on Hillary supporters, or either candidate is really good. There was one who linked to an economic analysis of Bernie's proposal, with a this sounds really good but I think they just made up the numbers; can any of y'all explain that to me?

The funny thing is that they don't realize how obvious they are.
