Have they heard of DU? The biggest reason why I’m even on Twitter is because the Bernie hate at DU is way too toxic.
I wake up again to the erasure of #Bernie's POC and women supporters, and to the fiction that his voters are more toxic than those of other candidates.

Kurt Bardella Trump’s MAGA supporters and Twitter Bernie Bros have this ugly tactic in commonBernie Twitter operates under the self-righteous guise of being the true progressives of the internet. But their harassing tactics are anything but progressive.

Don’t be surprised – in fact, expect a great deal more of this from corporate media. As the threat of a Sanders nomination/presidency grows, so, too, will their attacks on him AND his supporters. If they cannot discredit him, they will try to discredit us. If they cannot poison people against him personally, they will poison people against his campaign. They will use every dirty trick we can imagine – and probably several we wouldn’t imagine.
I expect all of this and a great deal more, but you know what? For all of their bull shit, our numbers are growing, Bernie’s campaign is kicking everyone’s ass in small individual contributions – and our candidate is second to none. We’ve got a damn good chance at winning this thing – and the corporate media becomes less relevant with every passing day.

An overpaid, privileged shill plays the race card against Bernie supporters, never mind the fact that Bernie leads with all persons of color combined. My favorite was “Warren took the high road.” Pathetic. Elizabeth Warren conspires with CNN to ambush Bernie in an obviously scripted attack to paint him as sexist, and now this shill cries when there is backlash. And then, of course, he compares Bernie supporters to Trump ones and accuses us of being a cult.
Notice what isn’t mentioned once in this whole whining piece? Issues, policies, the things that really affect the lives of the American people. Not once, for these corporatists cannot win on the issues. All they’ve got left are smears, innuendo, dirty tricks, pseudoscience such as body language, and just making shit up. They tried to use “woke culture” against Bernie and all that they awakened was rage at the same old bullshit. Against them.
This is panic. That’s what this is.

Each time they do it, give Bernie another $2.70. Or $27.00.

In 2016 Hillary allegedly got the debate questions via Donna Brazile but something Her Majesty said later makes me think that it was the other way around — Hillary’s campaign WROTE (the damned) question(s). Hillary said something like “when we asked Bernie…”
This time it is worse and more blatant — CNN coordinated with the Warren campaign to ambush Bernie and take the heat off of Biden’s Iraq War votes and Biden’s pathological lies about his on-going support for that war. CNN called Bernie a liar in the middle of the debate. It is Swiftboat 2.0
I don’t know why some people still believe that any of the major “news” outlets don’t have their own agendas. Newspaper used to have party names in their names, eg “Rochester Democrat and Chronicle” — they were honest about being part of the corporate/party machine. NBC employed Pat Buchanon for years and faced no FEC pushback when he ran for President every 4 years. Same for Trump — a decade of paying him to play the role of smart, successful businessman who takes 13 weeks to pick an apprentice while he “fires” 12 people that he never hired in the first place.

We finally stand up to the fascists after decades of abuse. They get all butthurt and play the victim card. They can go straight to hell where they belong.

Nothing like the rage of the rusted-out old fuckers who imagine themselves in control, when presented with younger people asserting themselves and taking the reins.

Peter Daou definitely knows about SV. He (using the name “NYC Pete”) was one of the ringleaders of the first wave DLC invasion of that site back in 2003.
Pete also knows how much he was involved in the Camp Weathervane slander campaigns against Bernie in 2016, so he can’t really be all that shocked that some of us would view his sudden proclaimed love of Bernie with some suspicion.
I didn't refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton because any goddamned Russian told me to. I refused to vote for her because she is a warmongering, election stealing, Goldman Sachs fellating, Republican WHORE. No offense to sex workers.

Politicans, by and large, are dishonest. When an authentic one comes along, he or she must smeared because they make the others look bad. Bernie surges are always followed closely by Bernie smears; it’s a law of nature.

Goddam Bernie Bros!
Btw Bernie, how’s it looking to get us your email list?
Proclaiming a populist policy makes you Bernie Sanders like singing ‘Yesterday’ makes you Paul McCartney.
