I agree with everything you wrote.

EXCEPT the last point. I have no problem "forgiving" or reconciling with Hillary supporters. I recognize the urgent need for all of us to work together in the next two years to defeat the incipient fascism, and the first step has to be to lay aside the ugliness, strive to learn from the strengths of the other campaign, and work together. NOW.

To fail to do this is to go the same route as the left in pre-fascist Germany. We all know how that ended.

But I do have the most vicious and insulting of those who want to continue the primary fights on ignore. (That includes some Bernie supporters, as well.) I have had to do this in order to continue reading DU. It protects my blood pressure and bad nerves and lessens my state of depression over the election results not to have to read the contemptuous remarks they make at every mention of Bernie's name and his supporters.

Every hateful slur by these fellow DUers is a stab in the heart of this lifetime FDR/JFFK Democrat, early Bernie supporter, and Hillary voter.

Having these DUers on ignore also eliminates over half the posts I see in most any given thread in 2016 Postmortem. I can still log out and read them all, and occasionally I do that, but quickly log back in.
