Bernie Supporters: Ignore & Trash - Best. DU. Features. Ever.

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

At the end of the day, Hillary supporters are NOT YOUR FRIENDS RIGHT NOW.

They believe Hillary Clinton will be the next President.

They do not believe or care about WHY you like Bernie. THEY DO NOT LIKE HIM.

Please do not engage them. Use the "Ignore" feature whenever anyone is insulting to another DUer. Trash threads that offend you.

Let them talk to themselves.

The battle is far from over.

Do not expect decency, kindness, compassion or respect from your enemies.

Today, Hillary supporters are your enemies. That may change after the convention or it may not.

Do not engage with people who do not care about what you value.

TRASH & IGNORE

I should have put a caveat in "only applies to those who find themselves teetering close to the edge"!!!

20. Why teetering? We knew she'd win Florida because it was a closed primary.

NC wasn't quite the blowout like other Southern states -- 14% difference right now. And thank you, Western NC and Orange County! I knew Asheville and Chapel Hill would come through!

OH was a bit disappointing, and I'd like to hear from Ohioans as to why Hillary did so well there. Was it a closed primary?

Right now he's up in MO by 3% with 76% reporting.

Hillary's up by 3% in IL with 71% reporting.

37. I admire your aplomb!

 

And I agree with everything you said.

But some of the gleeful gloating can be hard to take, especially among those who fear that another Clinton presidency will further destroy the middle class or hand everything to Trump or Cruz.

I became comfortable identifying as a Democrat under Obama. Previously, I considered myself an Indpendent despite primarily voting for Democrats. I am comfortable being a Bernie Democrat. I hope he pulls off this miracle - we need him.

was tempted to alert on it, but "annoying" and "dumb" weren't really options. "Over-the-top," maybe?

16. For now, yes. Later, probably not.

 

This is a battle for the soul of the party, and passions are high.

It will calm down when things finish playing out.

In the meantime, I'd prefer if long term DU folk used the tools available to stay friendly.

A little hyperbole. Those offended should probably follow the advice: hide and ignore.

36. Because it still is (okay...was) a community.

 

Just because I don't know their real names and this is the only interaction I'll likely ever have with anyone here (I only know one DU'er in real life) doesn't mean the community matters so very much less. Even a relatively non-empathetic, not-very-emotional person like me forms at least some degree of emotional bond to a community. When members of that community attack, belittle, gloat (etc...), I don't think the fact that its' a virtual community matters all that much. It still hurts and it still angers.

We're not always going to like our neighbors. But we can still have fun with the ones we do like while we ignore the the ones we don't.

Try not to take it so personally. It's just a message board.

And yes. I now have like 200+ people on ignore. I can't take them or their b.s. There's a few that are borderline that I haven't hid but meh - whatever. It keeps my blood pressure down.

for instance, there are supposed to be 45 replies here?? I see 23 of them.

Passionate. And yes, I do believe when people show a lack of courtesy and respect, the term can become appropriate.

Neither side is going to change their mind at this juncture. When either Hillary or Bernie gives a nice concession speech, people can go back to working together.

Right now, things are ... Unpleasant.

15. They have been telling us

for a while that they:

do not want us in THEIR party.

do not NEED us for THEIR candidate to win

do not consider us part of THEIR party

consider us the enemy and hate us far more than they do Republicans.

I've never expected compassion, understanding or even basic politeness. I'd not expect to see it start now or ever.

for a rude awakening. If she ultimately ends up as nominee, they are going to discover that Bernie attracts independents and even Republicans -- at least those who aren't insane. Hillary will never get those voters and a hell of a lot of Betnie voters will have to think long and hard before pulling the lever for her.
