25. I agree. We all need to stop blaming each other for Trump becoming President.

Creating literal barriers for African Americans to even be able to vote is done in the full light of day all of the time in this nation. It is conscious, it is racist, and it is overtly partisan. And the effects of that on elections is many many times more toxic to democracy than any disinformation campaigns waged to discourage voting by any group.

I hope we can all agree to stop with circular firing squads attacking the most loyal Democratic voters for Republican "victories". It angered me also when Sanders supporters have been blamed here in the past for the election day results in 2016. It didn't matter that it was shown that Sanders supporters were more loyal to Clinton on election day than Clinton supporters had been to Obama on election day 2008. There will always be some PUMA (Party Unity My Ass) types, there will always be some BOB (Bernie or Bust) type voters in a nation of over 300 million. That is not where the real action is happening. As a whole African Americans are by far the most loyal constituency the Democratic Party has. And self identified progressive voters rank extremely high by that matrix also.

We have to support each other, and defend each other, and win together.
