Clinton supporters no longer have the right to complain about refusals to vote for Hillary

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Agschmid (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

I have served on numerous juries where a Sanders supporter has stated they refuse to vote for Hillary if she is the nominee. The alert comment is always something along the lines of, "This is DEMOCRATIC Underground. Saying you won't vote for the DEMOCRATIC candidate is a violation of the TOS."

But then we get the incessant barrage of posts making Sanders supporters out to be racists. Never mind Sanders' decades long support for civil rights going back all the way before it was cool, Sanders has been slapped with everything short of outright being called a Klansman.

And his supporters are also being insulted. Any effort to remind others of Sanders' work for civil rights is waved away and the supporters are told they are insulting African Americans -- as if actual racists would count work in the civil rights movement as a point of pride. Now they're being told they are reducing African Americans to less than a complete person.

Wow. Just effing -- wow.

And that claim is getting dozens of Recs.

You want to see a real racist? Look no further than David Duke. Who has he thrown his lot in with? Which candidate makes him nod his head approvingly.

Hint: It rhymes with "Donald Trump"

We on DU note this fact and count it as yet one more reason as to why Trump is not qualified to be president. Surely, someone who draws the accolades of someone as unsavory as David Duke cannot possibly represent anything except baser motivations.

But Sanders supporters -- the ones being accused of reducing African Americans to lesser persons kinda like how David Duke does -- are being told they need to line up behind Hillary.

How about this Clinton supporters: If you're so absolutely certain that Sanders supporters are as racist as you claim then you should be demanding they do not support your candidate. The next time a Sanders supporter says they won't vote for Clinton instead of alerting you should show some integrity and just say, "Thank you" unless you would also welcome the David Duke bloc.

I dare you. I double-dog dare you.

8. Thanks for informing us what "rights" we do and do not have, in your authoritarian opinion.
