12. I wouldn't doubt it...

It's very easy to manipulate a group of people who are angry or fearful. Fear and anger are powerful motivators...

But so is money.

Not gonna say that money is changing hands here, but... PERHAPS something is amiss...

I'm skeptical of conspiracy though. I like to think that perhaps the group is just so misdirected and angry that they don't pay attention to those actually trying to help them...

Like, what if they're just so mad that all they see is an old WHITE MALE when they see Bernie? Then there's the people who try to explain to them that this WHITE MALE is actually on their side! They don't want to hear that, they've got pride, and anger. And that's not a good mix.

It's like a child throwing a temper tantrum, they aren't going to stop til they tire out or get EXACTLY what they want. In this case though... I have no idea what it is anymore.

At first they wanted the candidates to simply say "Black Lives Matter" without garnishing it with "All Lives Matter"... Bernie did that. Then they wanted someone to "Say her name!" Bernie did that. No other candidate has followed their instruction to the T as much as Bernie and yet... They just keep attacking.

I... really am starting to hope they stop.
