      There was a post celebrating how they drove us away, how glad they are to be rid of us, and so on. One response suggested they come over here to argue about it. Exactly! They can come over here and criticize us for disloyalty, stupidity, bad breath, lack of fashion sense, and not knowing how to polka. They can argue that Biden is better than Bernie. They can point out that Hillary would have won if all of us hadn’t voted for Jill Stein. They can do that here because we accept diverse opinions, and will not banish them for disagreeing with us. Of course, they would feel I’ll at ease on a site where people think differently, where conformity is not required, and, most significantly, where they don’t have the power of mob rule. I suspect many of them would come here and form an alliance to remove posts and banish people. But this site denies them that, and they would not get that special tingling in their loins that comes from casting out heretics. We should welcome them and their opinions, particularly if they self-identify as Biden fans, etc. I would love to see them here, floating their ideas about how to win elections, identity politics, etc. Not holding my breath, though.

      Sorry, but I think that’s a terrible idea.  Frankly, I don’t want those assholes here.  I do not believe I would be able to hold back – and I don’t think anyone wants to see the fury of the gnome unleashed!

      Seriously… no.  Let them stay where they are.  If some want to join us in good faith, I would welcome them, otherwise, I’d rather not open that barrel of monkeys.

        No worries on that score. The worst of that lot don’t have the guts to come over here, and the last thing they want is to have an honest and open debate on annoying things like how to interpret facts. Too complicated for them, I suppose.

      Frankly they wouldn’t last long here, because they invariably go with the Ad Hominem attacks and our mods would remove them. When confronted with facts the Cult members have no real answers.

        Truer words were never spoken. I’m sure we’ll get more refugees from there as the attacks on Bernie supporters grow more vicious and ridiculous, but those folks wouldn’t have anything to worry about here.

        The VD crew doesn’t have the courage to come here where they know they’ll get pushback, anyway. Cravenly poltroons, the lot of them.

      I don’t play well with stupid people.

      I don't waste my time teaching pigs to sing.

      Only if they bring 100,000 roses an apology and Kos’s head on a platter.

      I like engaging with people who do not think the same way I do, especially if we share some basic values.  However, I do not enjoy all the snark, innuendo, misinformation and Bernie and Tulsi bashing (Warren seems to escape this).   I know in my latest foray (I got expelled after about 2 weeks without any explanation) some of the people, especially supporters of Mayor Pete and Warren engaged respectfully and even one Biden supporter told me he thinks the same way I do (wait till he learns about his record).  I challenged people on facts supported by evidence, and a lot of people there don’t like that, but I didn’t engage in the mindless bashing that many there do.  Those are the people I would sanction, if I were moderating.

      Yes – facts are welcome.  And they might see facts rather than unjustified opinions.

        Which is exactly why the nastiest of them will never come here.

      Was that good suggestion for Site Voldemort to join forces with Free Republic?

      1. Both sites fought hard against the impeachment of G.W.Bush for War Crimes.

      2. Both sites treat the idea that a government of by and for the highest bidders as better than a government of by and for the majority of the citizenry.

      3. Both sites are against the impeachment of President Trump for corruption but think wasting the public’s time on Russiagate as not wasting the public’s time.

      Sounds like a match made in heaven to me.

      Bringing corrupt, establishment based, closed minded, dems to an open minded progressive format website is probably not a good idea. Personally, I like to converse with like minded people. I don’t do so good with stupid. I need to stop now.  🙂

      I will be a Bernie supporter FOREVER. This whole thing with Bernie and his people oriented policies were meant to be introduced in this day and age!! Many have tried and failed in the past. Succeeding was almost impossible. It's kind of a gimme in today's corrupt 2 party system that you have to work within. Just look how things have changed in the past 8 years from Bernie's policies. It was meant to be. Wait it out. Change will come. Thank you Bernie for all you've done. You are a truly amazing person.

      So they want to send disruptors.   Okay.  I just sent some more money to Bernie.

      I personally think we should ignore each other, but I guess that won’t happen.  So, when I see a thread that they’re bashing us again, I send money to Bernie.  I highly recommend it. Let’s fill the coffers of the Antichrist!

      Some are here already, just occasionally. When they get

      “raked down” by us, they disappear very fast. That is just

      my observation, especially today concerning J. Assange.

      I’d love to see if any of them would actually have the courage to show up here and plead their case for their favorite corporatists…. and then deal with the fallout from that without hiding behind PUMA-MIRT and a rigged jury system.
