The quote from Piker in the OP is deleted but

I found it and arduously rewrote it 'cause it's something you couldn't copy/paste!

Hasan Pike to M Mendoza Ferrer..

"You are a disgusting fucking hack. Just so you know we will be there every step of your career, even after bernie wins and lying shits like you eat shit, we will be there to call you a fraud and place that well deserved asterisk next to your name. You knew 10000% that cenk was being sarcastic in that clip just like you know he calls duke a white supremacist and anti-Semite repeatedly throughout the video, yet you lied about it and the NYT repeatedly prove they don't actually give a shit about presenting the truth to the people by quoting a useless sack of shit smear artist like you.

yeah "shocking from a relative of cenk.

We've had enormous CHANGE.. Don't try to say

we haven't.

President Obama actually accomplished CHANGE.. BS just talks about it.

BS also endorse the lewd misogynist, cenk uygur, President Obama would never do anything like that.

Sanders’ abrupt reversal represented a misstep for Vermont senator and presidential candidate. The California arm of his campaign was warned about Uygur's past comments and urged the national campaign to stay out of the race, sources told POLITICO.

But Sanders endorsed Uygur regardless.
His intervention created turmoil on the ground in California’s 25th Congressional district, a seat that Democrats flipped in 2018 but is now vacant after Democrat Katie Hill resigned amid allegations of sexual impropriety.''

Similar denunciations poured forth again following Sanders’ endorsement on Thursday. Even supporters of the Vermont senator expressed dismay that the progressive standard-bearer would back a candidate, in Uygur, with a problematic history. Local activists also groused that, unlike Smith, Uygur does not live in the district.

Because you don't know any better.

I love all our "establishment Dems" that BS is always dragging on.

They are the true progressives.. BS just talks about it.

When BS says he will take on the "establishment" Dems..
.. what he is saying is that he is taking on the party that has been a the forefront of Women's rights, Civil rights, and LGBTQ rights.

No one is making anyone a "god".

I wouldn't for a candidate who would endorse cenk uygur for Congress even after the CA BS branch urged him not to. That's Not Progress.

Yeah, BS ignores all that the Brilliant Achievements that the Dem Party has Accomplished

and goes straight to "Establishment" "Establishment" "Establisment" with some "corporatist" "corporatist" thrown in there for added insult.

Brilliant post, lapucelle. Thank you for laying

out so well, the difference between constituents, in BS' home state, protesting for over 2 months against the "war machine he brought to Vermont"...

And.. "Dubious organizations grandstanding in a hall near Speaker Pelosi's office in the interest of staging self-serving, one-off, instagram-ready photo-ops borders on astroturfing".

I had no idea this was going on.. "Antiwar candidate Bernie Sanders faces backlash over the $1.2 trillion war machine he brought to Vermont".. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

Nice touch with the "Not me. Us, indeed."

Well Done!
