Bernie people choppin on Hillary. Hillary supporters choppin on Bernie

Man both groups of you, STFU. I'm tired of you. You don't gain a damn thing but my disdain by attacking fellow progressives.

Anyway, I assume half of you are trolls trying to help Trump distract us from all his corruption. Either say something useful (which means don't attack fellow liberals) or scram. You suck.

1. It just keeps escalating.

Like your op, for example.

The Admins made some great changes that really helped DU, IMO. Seems enough time has passed to where the conversations can be had without involving the primaries in any way. It's interesting to watch and I believe it is telling a bigger story.

BTW, K&R.

16. Fighting Trump?

What does that even mean? Saying Trump is a bad man? People already know that. HRC fought Trump for months. What did it get us? More Trump.

The way to fight Trump is with Medicare for All, $15 minimum wage. Free college etc. Ragging on about unreleased tax returns and travel expenses as our main focus will not advance our party. It's preaching to choir. It doesn't inspire stay at home voters, new voters, or Independents.

It would be nice if merely hating on Trump was enough. It isn't. That's why we are where we are.

42. You won't get medicare for all at the moment...try saving the ACA that will

mean something to voters. You won't get a $15.00 minimum with Trump...you won't get free college with Trump and he needs to release his tax returns because he is selling out this country for a few measly rubles...try working on special elections, 18 and then 20...criticize Trump not the Democrats who are our only means of stopping Trump. The Russians made a successful attempt to divide the Democratic Party and succeeded in large part...but even with Comey, the primary, the Russians...we barely lost...and we will win next time. The idea that we need to remake our party over a close election is nonsense. 2016 is over...now we fight to save this country from Trump...all hands on deck. It is not time to remake the Democratic Party which seems kind of arbitrary anyway...I mean a pro-life candidate is OK but someone John Lewis (a hero to me) supports is not? All Democratic candidates deserve support from Democrats and Democratic allies. You want to get all the goodies described above...elect democrats. I was watching a program that showed a map of congressional districts and how they behaved during 16, we have the best chance in years to take back the House...let's not blow it.

43. " The idea that we need to remake our party over a close election is nonsense."

It shouldn't have been close. That's the point. The most qualified candidate in history lost to a pussy grabbing game show host. If that doesn't call for a remake of the party I don't know what does.

The most popular politician in the country stumping for Dems is not a problem. It's an asset. It boggles the mind that this is somehow controversial. By definition anti-Bernie sentiment is a minority opinion. Minority opinions don't win votes or elections.

44. Of course it was close...after eight years of a party...I can think of only

twice in modern times that a candidate of the same party won...Truman (during war II) and Bush I (Reagan was incredibly popular at the time).The most qualified candidate in history had been demonized for thirty years by the media and the Republicans...My question is why even show up for a mayor's race and especially this one where the candidate is pro-life? While I would vote for a pro-life Democrat over a Republican, I would not endorse one. This could be construed as throwing women under the bus.

Also the 'unity' tour should be disbanded...when people show up and boo the Democratic party, clearly it is not working...use resources to win important races like Georgia 6. You can't force unity...thus get on with picking candidates and working towards taking the House and maybe the Senate...we have the best opportunity ever...and a mayor's race is not even on my radar. Offer all progressives good choices and let the chips fall where they may.

14. Bernie is pretty transparent but politics are politics, in fact he may have helped Ossoff

by not opening his mouth.

http://www.myajc.com/news/state--regional-govt--politics/newcomer-with-war-chest-gives-democrats-hope-georgia-6th-district/m6cqizE9Ie0UYX1wHPjC1M/

There’s also support from the left-leaning Daily Kos website, which so far has raised nearly $1 million for Ossoff.

That’s painted something of a bull’s-eye on Ossoff’s back. No leading GOP contender has directly confronted him, but the National Republican Congressional Committee painted the Democrat as a “far-left Bernie Sanders guy.” (Ossoff, for his part, said he backed Hillary Clinton.)

FactCheck.org: Sanders Wrong on Voter Turnout

Sanders Wrong on Voter Turnout

snip//

Sanders, April 16: So many of our people are giving up on the political process. It is very frightening. In the last presidential election, when Trump won, we had the lowest voter turnout over — in 20 years. And in the previous two years before that, in the midterm election, we had the lowest voter turnout in 70 years.

Sen. Bernie Sanders wrongly claimed that voter turnout in 2016 was “the lowest … in 20 years.” In fact, turnout was higher than it was in 2012.

The overall turnout was 60.2 percent in 2016, up from 58.6 percent four years earlier. In addition, the percentage of eligible voters casting ballots for president in 2016 was 59.3 percent — the third highest in the last 44 years. Only 2008 and 2004 were higher.

More..
http://www.factcheck.org/2017/04/sanders-wrong-voter-turnout/

If he didn't insult us all the time.. I wouldn't be calling him out. He's divisive and wrong.

The point that we are trying to make is that there may be a lot of stupid crap going on in the world, people acting like idiots, saying stupid things - so you have to bring it up here just to argue? THAT is what's divisive.

Is somebody here repeating the words that Sanders said? No? Then why attack people here about it?

It was a month ago! To keep harping on it is just argumentative and divisive, no matter how many links you put in your post. It makes people wonder why you keep doing it and we're coming up with our own answers.

Well, no, actually the election was stolen from us. But the point is we lost and we can't keep fighting the same battles. It's time to rebuild and go after the big bosses - Trump and McConnell. McConnell needs his ass kicked to the curb and its' our mission to make Trump a lame duck president. We can't do that if we're fighting last year's battles. Time to get to work!
