Response to Thinkingabout (Reply #50)

Wed Jul 15, 2015, 09:52 AM

55. It refers to the OP, which is regurgitating the bullshit meme that Sanders will run as a third

party candidate. It's not the last few months before November 2016. Sanders has said, more than once, that he won't run as a third party candidate and there's no reason to believe he will, as he's never shown Presidential aspirations before now. This article isn't truly about November 2016.

The real point of this article is to blow the "Bernie dangerous to Hillary!" "Bernie outsider!" "Protect the hive!" "We can't risk damaging our nominee in the primary process!" "Don't even think about voting for that socialist!" dog whistles. I utterly reject the notion that we shouldn't have a competitive primary process, especially when the rationale is that a competitive primary will cost us the general election. That's fear-based non-thinking, and really, so is much of the NYT article in the OP.
