Response to GitRDun (Reply #56)

57. There is vitriol coming from both directions, and it would be hypocritical to ignore it.

 

A quick scan through the Hillary forum shows a mountain of unpleasantness and bile thrown towards anyone supporting Sanders, and plenty of that bleeds over into DU: P as well. There's also plenty towards Hillary supporters too, which probably means we all need to take a look in the mirror rather than this insistence that the other side are the guilty party.

Here's one tip though, if you genuinely dislike negative attitutes towards other candidates, then maybe you might want to avoid using words like 'pathetic' when you're speaking about people.

As for the campaign strategy, it's taken him from 3% to 35% in just 7 months, so regardless of whether it attracts your vote, it is difficult to make an argument that it hasn't been effective. He has actually become far less one dimensional recently in response to the advice he got from BLM, which is why his speeches on justice focus on a lot more than just the economy. It's always going to be the leading issue of his campaign though, for the very good reason that it's why he's running, and also why he's become a serious candidate. This is an issue that affects hundreds of millions of Americans, it DESERVES to be the lead issue.
