Response to notinkansas (Reply #12)

22. No other candidate campaigns against the Democratic party, just Bernie.

 

That's ridiculous.
No, it's not ridiculous.

And EVERYBODY is dedicated to defeating Trump.
How does it help the Democratic party (and our party's nominee) for anyone to make (or defend) DISHONEST accusations that Democrats are "ideologically bankrupt".

Exactly how is it supposed to "dedication to defeating Trump" for someone to falsely claim that Democrats are "feeble" and "corrupt"? What good purpose does it serve to proclaim that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure"?

Wouldn't you agree that it's "ridiculous" for someone to say that the Democratic party is "the party of the one-percent" and "party of the elite". Please explain to me what someone's motivation would be to say "there's no difference between Democrats and Republicans" if they weren't trying to take-down and weaken the Democratic party?

Fact of the matter is this... it's WRONG and it's DISHONEST to say that Democrats are "do-nothings"... and to say that the Democratic party "doesn't care about climate change."

It's also WRONG and DISHONEST to say that the Democrats "focus too much" on diversity and that because the Democrats "are very big into diversity" therefore we aren't "particularly sympathetic" to the working class.

What good purpose does it serve to promote this kind of dishonesty? It's divisive. It weakens us by creating resentment and suspicion. It makes new voters less willing to support Democrats if they're continually being told that "their vote doesn't matter" and that "the election is rigged" and that "both sides are the same anyway".

He hired some really deplorable people to be the faces of his campaign. He has made it clear that he considers the Democratic party to be an "enemy" that conspires against him. And in doing so, he's denigrating not only our party, but also our party's leadership, which includes some of our best and honorable politicians.

The rhetoric coming from him and from his campaign has a toxic and erosive effect. He deliberately plays that dangerous game and is fully aware that campaigning like this will turn his supporters away from the Democratic Party if he doesn't win the nomination.

No other Democrat behaves like this and it creates frustration and anger among Democrats because we've been through this before. It contributed to getting Trump elected and despite all that, BS doesn't care about it and still plays the same game.

All I'm trying to say is that it serves NO GOOD PURPOSE for his quixotic game to continue. It's divisive and it harms the party, it weakens the party. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
