Oh please. How is quoting Bernie &/or his surrogates "bashing Bernie"? Just, how? Hekate Dec 2019 #72
They dredged up a 3 year old tweet smearing a civil rights icon because he is sick now Tiggeroshii Dec 2019 #74
Yes, and you may have noticed my post advising the newbie to self-delete as divisive. Hekate Dec 2019 #81
Lots of Bernie hate on this site.... mudstump Dec 2019 #138
Here are some ways this could have been prevented dsc Dec 2019 #161
You know what the other way is? Tiggeroshii Dec 2019 #162
He hired someone who trashed a civil rights legend dsc Dec 2019 #165
No. He doesn't have anything to do with this. Tiggeroshii Dec 2019 #168
actually there were several threads of this very post dsc Dec 2019 #170
It was a tweet in poor taste. Using a mans cancer diagnosis to attack Tiggeroshii Dec 2019 #172
So it was fine until he got cancer? dsc Dec 2019 #173
Then wait until he doesn't have cancer anymore to share it again.? Tiggeroshii Dec 2019 #174
actually since he hasn't apologized we can assume she still believes it dsc Dec 2019 #175
Why would you share mean spirited words at all when the person they were directed at Tiggeroshii Dec 2019 #176
So actually in your universe if one says despicable things about someone who then gets sick dsc Dec 2019 #180
No. In my world we dont try to use peoples' illnesses and out of context tweets to hurt Tiggeroshii Dec 2019 #181
except this tweet isn't out of context dsc Dec 2019 #184
Funny how you contest the first point but are mum on the second. Tiggeroshii Dec 2019 #185
what part of this was posted the day she was hired (and he at least didn't know he was sick) dsc Dec 2019 #188
Wow! All queued up and ready to go. jalan48 Dec 2019 #60
This is from Jan. 2017 & is TOTALLY UNNECESSARY to dredge up at this moment. Hekate Dec 2019 #61
I wonder why she's still on Sanders campaign. Maybe Bernie shares her views. comradebillyboy Dec 2019 #139
Maybe DU could just focus on John Lewis for one damn day instead of ugliness... Hekate Dec 2019 #147
Another bloody sore point with me: Who did Sanders supporters heckle at the 2016 Convention? NBachers Dec 2019 #62
Exactly.. we will never forget Cha Dec 2019 #101
Another day, another Bernie bashing thread. Tiggeroshii Dec 2019 #63

None of that changes what she wrote. BannonsLiver Dec 2019 #85
Depends on who it is trying to make look bad Tiggeroshii Dec 2019 #87
So no-one should try to stuff any more meaning into it out of context. marble falls Dec 2019 #93
