What's positive about having anyone falsely claim there's "no difference"

I think it would have a positive impact.
What's positive about having anyone falsely claim there's "no difference" between Democrats and the GOP? Where is the "positive impact" when someone says that the Democratic party is "the party of the elite" or "the party of the one percent"?

All I'm saying is that these types of smears and attacks on Democrats and the Democratic party are not the kind of things that actually motivate people to vote for Democrats. It also causes distrust and suspicion and that weakens the party. I believe that anything which weakens the party only benefits the GOP and Trump and Russia.

I'm just not seeing that as having a "positive impact".

You're absolutely correct! It serves no good purpose for anyone...

Nothing says 'vote for Dems' like bashing the entire Dem Party!
You're absolutely correct! It serves no good purpose for anyone to bash the party by saying that Democrats are "feeble" or that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure".

Only someone who truly hates the Democratic party would go to such efforts to denigrate us by saying that the Democratic party is "the party of the one-percent" or that the Democratic party is the "party of the elite".

It only benefits the GOP when someone repeats the lie that there's "no difference between Democrats and Republicans." Things like that only create distrust and suspicion, and that weakens the party.

I will only support a candidate who supports the party... someone who inspires and elevates the party... someone who lifts us up, not someone who tears us down. I'll only support someone who STICKS with the party through thick and thin, in good times and bad... not someone who's here today and gone tomorrow. Loyalty means a lot to me.

We have such an abundance of riches to draw from in the DEMOCRATIC party... people who are LOYAL to the party and to other Democrats. Those are the ones that energize me!

Enough of the negativity and lies and attacks and smears that denigrate real Democrats and the Democratic party!


Exactly! That's why it's so important to stand against those who denigrate the Democratic party...

United we stand, divided we fall.

We can remain united when people refrain from telling lies that Democrats are "ideologically bankrupt". We are strong when we stand up against the lies that Democrats are "feeble" or that that Democrats are "corrupt". At every turn, we must always confront and refute the lie that the Democratic party is "the party of the one-percent" or that the Democratic party is the "party of the elite".

There should be absolutely NO disagreement when it comes to calling out the LIE that there's "no difference between Democrats and Republicans," or the other LIE that Democrats are "do-nothings".

We can make a difference whenever Democrats stand up and fight back against those who tell LIES about how the Democratic party "doesn't care about climate change." It serves no good purpose for anyone to spread these types of lies.

When those types of denigrating and divisive lies remain unchecked and unchallenged, then that's when the division starts. That's when people start to question the intentions and motives of others.

All I'm trying to say is that a divided and suspicious and distrusting Democratic party is one that is weakened... and that only benefits the GOP (which benefits Russia.)

Good catch. It also perpetuates the idea of separateness and...

Good catch. It also perpetuates the idea of separateness and it reinforces his belief that the Democratic response "isn't good enough" so he must get in on the action.

Ultimately this is just a way to steal the spotlight from Ms. Abrams. It's just a way to spoil her moment and put his spin on it by having the last word. It's disrespectful and it serves no good purpose.

Ms. Abrams speaks on behalf of the Democrats. On whose behalf is Bernie speaking?

Oh the unity! Can you feel it?

I know, people forget a lot of things, don't they?

... it's easy to forget ...

One thing I hope that people never forget is are the false claims that Democrats are "ideologically bankrupt". We should also never forget the false claim that Democrats are "feeble", and the false claim that Democrats are "corrupt".

People aren't likely to forget the falsely claim that the Democratic party is "the party of the one-percent" and the false claim that the Democratic party is the "party of the elite". Nor will they forget the false claim that there's "no difference between Democrats and Republicans."

All I'm saying is those sorts of unfair and untrue smears on Democrats (and the Democratic party) really isn't "progressive" at all.

Fact of the matter is that when anyone continually spouts these attacks on Democrats, it actually causes a lot of harm. It creates distrust and division. It plants doubts and suspicions. It tarnishes and diminishes the Democratic "brand". It certainly isn't the kind of thing that someone says who wants to ATTRACT move voters into supporting Democrats or the Democratic party, so I have to wonder what good purpose it's supposed to serve.

These are perfectly fair and reasonable questions that deserve an honest response. It's also fair for loyal Democrats to stand in opposition against anyone who would try to damage the Democratic party in that way. I think reasonable people can agree that when anyone does something to weaken the Democratic party, that only benefits the GOP and Trump... and that ultimately benefits Trump.

Now is the time for unity, not division. We must remain strong, not engage in divisive attacks on Democrats that weaken the party. I don't know why anyone would be opposed to having a strong and united Democratic Party!
