1. Learning to lose is a fundamental skill of childhood and democracies

 

Attempting to undermine the legitimacy of every single election you lose is a fascist tendency.

Sometimes you lose in a democracy.

Deal with it. We had to teach our children how to lose in sports and games - by the time they were seven they understood. It's sad to see that so many so-called progressives fail to pass the seven year old test of losing with grace and dignity.

2. I will accept no losses as legitimate when there is massive voter suppression.

You should like this video, it really pushes Hillary for most of it.

3. there was not massive voter suppression. There were registration file snafus

 

and a poorly timed purge of inactive voters (something that happens quite a bit).

Long-time registered Democrats were NOT going to be big Sanders supporters. He loses that group in virtually every primary.

4. have you ever been to a liberal news site? You're going against them.

How do you explain 125,000 people in Brooklyn alone purged from the voter rolls?

5. inactive voter purges for one, and our Board of Elections is a hot mess that is not well run

 

Not every mess is a conspiracy

6. I'm not buying it. Many people checked their registrations last month and were find then checked

this week and were purged. They weren't purged equally across the state.

7. long-time registered Democrats favor Clinton. If anything that suppressed her vote.

 

there is no conspiracy. NYC has some very poorly run institutions.

9. Right, the old people. Sure glad in the 1980's when I became of age to vote,

I was allowed to. This year it appears no state will do anything but try to stop the new come of age Dems to vote.

How dare the youth vote or anyone who want to change to a Democrat vote. Heck, how dare Democrats vote if they aren't old.

Anyway, we will agree to disagree. I'll go with the liberal news sites.

12. Excuse me? You are talking about Democracy Now .org

And if you'd have watched the cast, it was all pro Hillary.

8. There isn't "massive voter suppression." You just lost

 

The absolute refusal of so many Sandersites to accept that they lose elections is one of the most frightening features of this race.

Sometimes in a democracy, you just lose.
