Response to Wawannabe (Original post)

18. Half of Sanders' most loyal base did vote directly for Trump,

 

another similar percentage voted third party, and 2% refused to vote at all, for 24% of all Sanders' primary voters. Most of those here loudly claimed Sanders' messages as the reasons they couldn't vote for Democrats.

And true believers that they are, the same foul lies became basic frames of belief for them to this day, and I'm guessing they'll die seeing everything through a lens of Democratic corruption. Once they were no longer allowed here, of course, they retreated to the DU satellite forums that exist for hostiles to monitor our chat and post anti-Democratic poison. The inspiring home page of one:




And the sort of thing you see there about Democrats, in this case responses to Obama's message to avoid extremism, aka too much "purity," which obviously didn't go over well with its intended audience:

"BTW, Barry, Bernie has the perfect comeback to your bullshit: It’s always impossible until it’s done.–Nelson Mandela. Mandela would be ashamed of you, Obama, you fucking sellout."

"Barack O’Bummer. Direct from the office of the corporate DNC Inc."

"Says the representative of a conservative wing of the Democratic party, after spending three years casting stones at the Russians, who had little to do with their political failure to inspire citizens enough to believe it worthwhile to cast a vote. Good leaders own up to their mistakes. Blaming voters puts the “cart before the horse”."

"STFU, Barry! You betrayed 90% of the people who voted for you, especially African-Americans, whom you just shit on. Look forward, not back. Americans celebrate wealth, and they should. War, war, and more war. Assassinations. The rich got richer and everyone else got poorer. More, much more, and your final gift to America was Donald Trump. Lower than whale dreck, you are."

One posted a video of Ralph Nader claiming Obama would be another Bush. Another posted an article from RT/Russian propaganda to show how evil and corrupt Democrats are.


That Democrats are too much like Republicans to make any real difference is a message Sanders has pushed in various ways at every appearance I've seen him in. I learned to watch for it, and he's been doing for so long that it seems almost as automatic to him as breathing. Like when he blew off a question at the She the People conference about what he'd do as president about all the racist, extremist judges the Republicans have been packing the courts with, who are persecuting minorities, by saying he'd "appoint Supreme Court Justices" and "anyway, the Democrats do it too."
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
