Response to VulgarPoet (Original post)

8. This...

people I'd considered allies only to have been MASSIVELY wrong after seeing the kind of things they'd post without direct DU oversight

were more willing to dig a trench and shoot us in front of it rather than work across any kind of aisle that wasn't filled with concertina wire

absolutely incensed by both the numbers of Hillary's supporters who couldn't restrain being smarmy and condescending


And this is why we don't (shouldn't) continue attacking Bernie and his supporters (his actual supporters, not the Busters who are not his supporters). Once people don't feel cornered they can stop being reactive and start thinking again; and most of us on both previous sides were in a reaction spiral that was feeding off of the previous real, or perceived, attack.

I don't remember any of your posts, VulgarPoet, but if everyone that said something stupid or terrible during the primaries had to apologize we'd all be apologizing until 2020.

I thank you for your heartfelt post. Now let's go win.
