Response to Ninsianna (Reply #96)

97. My point is the hypocrisy of decrying "divisiveness" but doing so *selectively*

 

In your post, you're criticizing a Democrat on grounds of public policy, specifically reproductive rights. Does that mean you're "sowing division in the Democratic Party"? Does it mean you're "coming to Republicans' rescue"? No, it does not. It's perfectly valid for you to advance substantive arguments about why this Democrat is in error and shouldn't be supported. The quoted language from the OP would be wrong as applied to you.

Criticizing Democrats on grounds of public policy, specifically single-payer health care, is just as valid. The Democrats who oppose single payer can also make their case. That's the political process.

It's hypocritical for anyone to agree with the OP's attack on those nefarious "Bernie Bros and sisters" on the ground that they're criticizing Democrats, but then to turn around and criticize Democrats.
