Why do Bernie supporter like to use such impolite and ugly language?

It seems that they are generally angrier and more strident.

I was brought up to use only civil language in discourse.

22. Conservatives Don't Like Swear Words

Researchers from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) scoured the accounts of followers of both main political parties in the United States to discover the major effect political inclinations have on language employed on the micro-blogging site.

Liberals, or more left-leaning supporters of Obama's 'Democrats', were markedly more likely to swear - both 'fuck' and 'shit' found in their top ten most used words, after the commonest English expressions were removed.


http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2015/09/15/twitter-research-language-patterns_n_8140730.html

Left-wingers are more likely to use swear words than their right-leaning counterparts, a study of thousands of Twitter accounts has suggested.

While conservative-leaning individuals are, perhaps unsuprisingly, more likely to use religious terms such as "God" and "psalm", those on the liberal end of the political spectrum are heavy users of "f***" and "s***" online.

We can certainly tell which way you lean, eh?

But they aren't running. And we are all yapping about how Hillary was easily inferred to be a corporate whore (and worse than Trump)..will be for days.

Quoting numbers that are dramatically different than those in the public domain require genuine proof.

New York Daily News stated crowd in park and outside it, listening, was 30,000. According to several accounts park, at capacity can comfortably hold 11,000 to 17,000 but could hold 20,000.
Given the Sanders campaign estimated 27,000 total, I would guess the actual to be 25,000 to 32,000 based on first hand accounts and media accounts.

In other words I was raised to be honest above all else, words aren't offensive but dishonesty is.

44. Probably because the smarter of the bunch realize that time is

running out and the day of reckoning is less than a week away. After Bernie loses NY many of the fan club will put their best face on and soldier on, hoping against hope for the miracle that isn't going to happen (and sending in their $27) but the smarter ones realize that it's all over and that they bet on the wrong horse. So now you're seeing the anger and frustration that comes from that, exemplified by anger and offensive language. It's all they have left.

after April 19 Bernie's 'path to the nomination' disappears.

I'd rather be ok with the strident language. Maybe that's what it takes to wake some people up.

I'm sure those establishment big wigs in their fancy high rise towers have far more eloquent ways to tell a lie than Eskimos have words to describe snow, but they still are liars no matter how polite, fancy and inoffensive their words.

84. All sides are getting ugly, now.

You might wish to take the time machine back to DU on this date in 2008, to see that things were ugly then as well. The primaries are particularly tough on we Democrats because most of us make carefully considered choices about whom we will support, and many of us are not happy to see others going a different way.

Nor will I argue that the level of discourse is falling in America. It's always been this awful. Andrew Jackson's wife was savaged to completely that it killed her within 8 weeks of the election of 1828. We have always been scum.

I've heard much worse from Hillary supporters.

PS- While I wouldn't use the term "whore" (it's pretty loaded), I think the sentiment that Hillary is a corportists IS true.

In fact the Democratic party is full of them. Useless corporate tools who will do NOTHING to help working people, because it is all about Wall Street.
