      He called her statement on Hillary Clinton ‘unhinged’ (it is actually Clinton with the unhinged claims). He danced around the grooming and asset part and said that bots are supporting her.

      He pointed out that she received endorsements from the alt right which she disavowed.

      This is so nonsensical. Every candidate has some crazies who support them for whatever weird reason. What matters is whether the candidate seeks their support, as Trump and arguably Hillary do, or whether they focus their campaigns on issues, such as Sanders, Gabbard, and Yang have done.

      And there is the target.  IMO.  Barring something extraordinary – and awful, really – Gabbard was not going to be The Candidate, anyway.  The DNC is trying to ensure that Gabbard will lose her current position.  Would not be surprised in the least if this was not coordinated with Gabbard’s opponent.  And even if everyone agrees Hillary is bat-shit crazy – Hillary got that message out there.

      I do not want Tulsi Gabbard to be the cause of Bernie not being the candidate for president.  Not with what is at stake here.  That is not the hill Bernie’s campaign should die on.  Sorry, but IMO an entire country is at stake, and if Bernie drops out, we get either Trump or a Vichy Dem.

        As someone who voted for Clinton in 2016 these Trumpian smears from Clinton really bother to the point I want to quit the party and just become an Independent. My biggest problem is that will encourage her followers to engage in these offensive smears. I regret I voted for Clinton in 2016 and I never thought I’d say that because of how awful Donald Trump is.

         

        Bernie Sanders doesn’t have to say anything but I hate seeing the party smear her like this. I don’t agree with her on every issue but I never seen a candidate in my life disrespected like this.

          @jonlp

          That was not a Trumpian smear.  That was a CLINTON smear.  Hillary was smearing people long before Trump was elected.  Bernie is smeared all day, every day by Democrats.  By the $MSM.  On social platforms.  Bernie rises above it.

          I #demexited.  I will re-up to vote for Bernie in the primary.  I feel justified in doing that because whoever gets elected will affect my life, not just the lives of those in the party they represent.

        “I think the one they don’t like is Tulsi,” said CNN’s Christian Sierra in the video. “They don’t like Tulsi Gabbard. Because she supports [Syrian President Bashar] Assad and she is not taking the conventional route when it comes to foreign policy and stuff like that.”

        Of course giving this orchestrated opponent neocon media time now is totally orchestrated. The warmonger media does all this on purpose, because politicians who give voice to the antiwar majority are deadly to their Overton window of gaslighting.  It’s now on record that it’s all about policy, and the warmonger media does it’s worst to Tulsi because of her foreign policy mission.

          I so want to believe it but I don’t trust anything coming from O’Keefe after those ACORN videos. The corporate media doesn’t like Tulsi that is obvious but I don’t trust O’Keefe or anything associated with him.

            I don’t know who O’Keefe is and don’t care. There’s video material and AFAIK nobody from CNN or elsewhere has has claimed that it’s not authentic. So, this is admissible evidence in the court of my critical reading skills.

            Aloha!

              James Keefe Project VeritaS is the source. He selectively edits and misrepresents what subjects on video are saying. He dressed in ridiculous stereotype pimp outfits trying to “expose” ACORN. It was a big media story until it turned out was selectively editing and misrepresenting what was going on now he is completely discredited.

              He was even charged with a crime for trying to bug Landrieu’s office.

      Don’t quit the “party” @jonlp . Quitting only means you will no longer be able to vote in primaries, making more progressive candidates less viable.

      Party membership is not your identity – it’s a means of maintaining some small measure of influence.

      So, will the DNC penalize this guy’s funding, for daring to primary an incumbent?

      Somehow I get the feeling they won’t…
