Response to bravenak (Reply #104)

105. Lol. The projection is so blatant, it'd be hillarious if we weren't faced with the fact trump is ta

office!

In reality, the most you get out of bernie supporters are claims that he would have beaten trump in the general election. Seeing as the vast majority of that camp went on to actually campaign for and vote for hillary, it seems they "got over it", and fairly quickly.

Meanwhile, there's a little cadre of people literally incapable of admitting that hillary bears any responsibility whatsoever for losing to the biggest shitheel to ever run for president in american history. The result is a lot of projection, cognitive dissonance, and playing an entire deck of victim cards. EVERY DAMN DAY.

Half the country hates women (including the women who didn't vote for hillary.

Half the country is racist.

It's Comeys fault... no, it's Putins fault!

No wait, Hillary actually won, because she did absolutely nothing wrong during the campaign, she got the most votes, but they were switched!

NO, IT'S TEH BERNIE AND TEH FAR LEFT11!!1

See, at the same time, the most hatred is reserved for, not republicans, but the fellow democratic candidate in the race that you claim sucked so much he had no support, yet somehow caused her loss (despite claiming she actually won, but the votes were stolen).

Quite the cognitive dissonance going there.

Sure, i voted for bernie, i was (note the tense) bummed out that he lost. Actually i'm way more bummed out that hillary lost, because now we have president douchebag about to take office.

Maybe someday you'll realize that it's petty and unhealthy to relive the primary on a daily basis. Probably not. You end up working yourself all up on a daily basis blaming this and that for losing, but mostly ranting about bernie.

It's pretty clear by now that in your eyes, no matter what, hillary didn't make any mistakes in her campaign and was perfect, but got robbed. She lost because people hate women and are racist, while at the same time she actually really did win. Which is cool, everyone is entitled to their opinions.

But let's be honest about who can't let the shit go amd who is bothered the most and why.

As far as bernie people carrying a grudge, ha! Evn the most ardent supporter knew bernie was an extreme longshot to beat hillary, no matter how much we may think he could have beat trump in the general. He was expected to pull down kucinich- like numbers and quickly be vanquished. Instead, he won several states, brought old school FDR views back to the forefront of discussion, and interested a bunch of young people in politics. To a lot of us, there's nothing to be bitter or hold a grudge about, he far exceeded expectations!

I shouldn't help keep it going by posting in any of these threads, but the blame dodging and projection and navel gazing here is annoying as hell and i can't help myself from commenting on it. I've never seen anything like it, it makes the OG PUMAS look tame!
