Fantasy memes and real targets

First the memes. We've all heard them. "Anointed One", "because it's her turn", "inevitable", and the list goes on. On that issue, it emphasizes the blatant dishonesty by trying, and not successfully, to convince people they were invented by Hillary's supporters to instill hopelessness in those who support another candidate, but I'm sure at this point everyone knows where the memes originated. That's what you call desperation.
Now for the targets. Whether pro-Hillary or anti Hillary, it doesn't take long for those threads to devolve into a headlong race to see who can outdo the other in what I'm sure they perceive as being clever in the smears against Hillary. (With the exception of this group)I believe she is the secondary target, and the nastiness is directed at her supporters in an obvious attempt to circumvent a direct attack. They are not going after Clinton, they are going after you. The main reason? Certainly not out of support for their chosen candidate, but out of a desire to somehow hold themselves above others morally, and, here we go again, to make others feel a hopelessness for their cause. Bottom line for me? Their entire shtick is based upon, you guessed it. Hopelessness. That's what I have to say, and I feel better having said it. As always, this post, and it's fate is left up to the hosts of this group. Disclaimer: These statements are not directed toward any person who does not fit the above description.

1. I agree with you....

...and it's that contant negativity that has caused me to spend time in greener pastures where I can celebrate Hillary and discuss the issues with friends. I'm tired of being torn down and jumped on. I check in the HRC group occasionally but other than that, I'm hanging out where the vibes are better. My friends know where to find me.

2. Getting pretty bad

The reason I posted here was because I didn't want to get dragged down into a sense of hopelessness. I'm starting to feel hopeless just thinking about it. Bada-bing-bada-bam Can't you tell?

I'm not hopeless....I'm happy and confident Hillary is going to win most of the primaries, most of the delegates and the GE.

5. Not feeling hopeless either.

A little discouraged by all the hate. I don't understand why people can't disagree without going nuclear.

7. It's kind of...

......a monster they've created that needs to be fed. If any of them show any sign of weakness, they'll get thrown under the bus beast for later dining. I visit DU every day, and I am at a complete loss as to how they can't see what they've done to this site. Jeebus, if Bernie's hair gets a mention in humor, "THAT'S IT!! UNDER THE BUS NOW!!! The next step is to try and equate it with the hateful drivel they rely on to keep the Egoprise afloat. Go figure.
