Cynthia Nixon took a stand during Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) rally in Durham, New Hampshire, on Monday night after the audience booed the mention of 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s name.


Good for Nixon though! He might be worth supporting is more of his base had that kind of class.

4. correct, not all of them.

 

There are good people in his ranks. Ones that saw the problem we were going into and made the right choice when it counted.

If only he filled his campaign leadership positions with THOSE people instead of.. the ones he chose.

7. Exactly. I really don't get his strategy.

 

Does he not realize that every time he attacks the Democratic Party, the DNC, long time Democratic Party leadership.. or his surrogates do... he's damaging his how long term chances??

He may well take the nomination to find that he doesn't have the support he and his surrogates are counting on from the long time dedicated voting supporters..

Democratic Party "establishment" has a long history of winning elections without the fickle elements of his base, but there's no evidence at all that he can win unless we'd all be willing to get behind him if he does..

His own words and actions.. the words and actions of his campaign leadership.. the words and actions of his surrogates.. damaging those chances.

12. No it's not surprising. Many young liberals don't identify as Democrats. Hillary is not an icon to

 

them like she is to many of us Democrats. She came out on Bernie in Jan, and now in Feb. She had to have known how doing that would set off his younger people. I think it's wrong to boo anyone but yeah, when she went on to talk about him anyone could see it was going to cause a reaction.

10. At what point

 

might we hear chants of "Lock her up" ? It seems that many in the Sanders camp are adopting the "burn it all down" mentality as advanced by the MAGAt crowd. If Bernie is the nominee I certainly will support him, given the horrible consequences that would await us otherwise. The sentiments expressed by those booing Hillary are telling. Apparently they share ownership in the 2016 results are are not averse to showing it. And worse yet, would not hesitate to stage a 2020 repeat if their candidate is not the nominee.

facepalm:

14. This is the same type of conduct that vetted sanders delegates engage in at the National Convention

 

Normally going to a national convention is a once in a life time experience. I have worked really hard inside the party on campaigns and voter protection issues for a very long time to earn this trip. Too bad that sanders and his vetted delegates ruined that experience and did their best to help trump. A candidate has absolute approval rights over their pledged delegates because these delegates can change their votes and these delegates represent the candidate and campaign. I helped vet Clinton delegates and I know that I was vetted. The Clinton campaign told us that we represent her and that our actions would reflect on her and her campaign.

In contrast, sanders sent one very weak text the Sunday night before the convention and then did little or nothing to control his delegates. It was nasty I was there when the sanders delegates booed Congressman John Lewis. I was warned about this stunt 30 minutes before it happened by the Clinton campaign whip. According to my whip, sanders was asked to stop this event and declined. That incident will be used against sanders by Russia to suppress the African American vote just as was done in 2016


Russia will just run material showing sanders delegates booing John Lewis, Elijah Cummings and others to suppress the vote of African American voters and I feel that this tactic would be very effective

I was at the Texas delegation breakfast when a group of sanders delegates marched in and demanded that we condemn Clinton and change our votes to sanders.



sanders spoke to the Texas delegation the next morning and his speech was again solely about himself. There was a mini-riot due to his delegates the prior morning and the only thing that sanders talked about was himself. sanders did nothing to deal with the fact that his delegates were out of control and did nothing to try to help Hillary Clinton win the general election.

Finally a group of sanders delegates yelled at my daughter and called her the c-Word because she would not try to get me to change my vote. Again sanders was asked to tell his delegates to behave during the convention and sanders refused

The conduct describe in the OP does not surprise me
