Sanders Supporters And White Entitlement

As a Bernie Sanders supporter, one of my greatest frustrations with the people in my camp is the anger they seem to direct at Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party for what they deem to be an “unfair” primary process. I think we can all agree that there are problems with our elections, but in the end it seems to me that concerning many of my fellow Sanders supporters who are new to the process and the Democratic Party, the sense of entitlement they feel wrt taking the nomination is pretty off putting. Personally, I think it's in part a product of the kinds of people Bernie has drawn out of the woodwork, i.e. white independent liberals and working class nonpartisans.

Bernie Sanders has no plausible path to secure the Democratic nomination: To earn a majority of pledged delegates, he'd need to win 68 percent of those left outstanding, even though he’s only won less than 46 percent of available delegates to date. But instead of acknowledging this reality, Sanders’ campaign is now taking a scorched-earth approach toward its opponents—even if that means helping Donald Trump win the White House.



Sanders Camp Flirts with Going Full "Burn It Down"

The New York Times posted an article late Wednesday evening which confirms and expands on much of what I've been hearing from within the Sanders campaign in recent weeks and days. The top leaders of the campaign are now saying openly that they are focused on dealing a crushing blow to Clinton in the California primary on June 7th and aren't concerned whether it damages Clinton's chances in the general election or not.
