to counter the issues we brought to the campaign. If I leave the party, it will be one of the reasons I'll never look back.
She has been relentless in her attempt to belittle Bernie, so having her at the beginning of this video was perfect.
Well done Cenk!
No doubt the "bernie bros" thing was created to cover for THEIR attacks, much like "going negative" and "tone" were to deflect from Bill and Hillary screaming at liberals and Greenpeace.
and media echo plants. I think Biden is starting to figure that out.
My caucus was like this too, all ages, sexes, and all races. The women at my work are more disgusted with her than me, they are tired of being marginalized. I liked the guy that said divide and conquer, they are definitely trying that.
I should be used to it tho, in 2008 I was called an Obama Bro by the Hillary campaign.
Washington did not fall for her that time either, we did not like the war, we had issues with her race-baiting, and my extended family were from Kenya...so it did not play well with anyone. I think the media was less bought of that time too?
They called the supporters of a black candidate 'Obama BOYS'. Nope, no subtle racism there.
and men slightly preferring Bernie. This same gender gap is showing up in national polls.
That is the element of truth in the Bernie Bros image, despite the photo.
With younger women preferring Bernie
Bernie bros is a pejorative fabrication
Most 30 year olds don't think of themselves as old yet.
One is as offensive as the other imo but you don't see Sanders' supporters using the latter slur.
Camp HRH owns it all.
Sanders' was chastised to the point he was forced to tell people he didn't even know whether or not they are his actual supporters to stop it.
What about Clinton? Has she told anyone to cut it out besides wallstreet? Nope.
While "thinking" they are helping the campaign, they are actually damaging it more. Even Bernie and his campaign realize that and have made efforts to stop the damage.
You people use the Jewish slurs, use ageism like they were toilet paper.
Not falling for your team's bullshit. Hypocrite much.
You guys are into the hiring trolls business and are probably the same BBs you are referring to.
We dont want that crap: Sanders repudiates sexist Bernie Bro supporters
Sanders slams sexist Bernie bro supporters: I dont want that crap, I dont want them
Every rally I've been to has been a mixture of beautiful people of all ages.
That sentiment is no different than the GOP pointing to the existence of the Log Cabin Republicans as proof of their LGBTQ outreach.
I think it's unfair to paint all his supporters with the term but the candidate himself certainly acknowledges their existence.
Comments I jotted down from a recent short visit to GG-P:
Asshole behavior is all camp Clinton offered from day one.
You all can't seem to understand our disdain for your side.
Petty and mean and winning at all costs.
Divisive, nasty and arrogant.
Petty little people with hate-filled hearts.
They love their trolls and trollish behavior.
Got to be tiring shoveling shit day in, day out.
Rovian drone. Brock puppets.
I don't think age or gender has anything to do with being a Berniebro. Hate and stupidity does.
to say, even if they are opposed to Bernie, that's OK, but if all they do is throw nonsense, ignore.
And you see the people at Hillary events and they look like zombies.
Look at that happiness.
or, as I call them, "Brockwursts".
I am a feminist: just not a white bourgeois feminist that is not aware of what is called intersectionality
I am and have always been aware of Bernie Sanders and to my happy surprise he announced his candidacy for President
My whole family supports Bernie Sanders
I do not have any brothers
Yet, I have been insulted at every term by Hilary Clintonites who refuse to acknowledge who and what she is. I know Americans tend to have little knowledge of history but this is absurd
I will never vote for her. I will write in Sanders. I will vote for Stein but I will never vote for Clinton (and no I have never voted for a Republican in my entire life).
I have heard about it. Its disgusting, Sanders said. Look, we dont want that crap. ... We will do everything we can and I think we have tried. Look, anybody who is supporting me that is doing the sexist things is we dont want them. I dont want them. That is not what this campaign is about.
What is point? He was just saying that not knowing that Clinton camp was so ugly they paid people to act like BernieBros and say stuff that was bad.
The "Bernie Bro" meme was particularly odious. I plan to be watching for things to correct that on a quantum level.
I have observed as much nastiness and intolerance from Sanders supporters that rivals anything I've observed on mixed political forums from the far Right. That is my main lesson learned during this election cycle.
"Nuh-uh! Lies! Hardly any white guys here! We're real americans!"
I can't escape noticing that no other two words describing an opponents supporters could be used to bias and prejudice american voters against a candidate.
Shit, when Romney was accused of being supported by corporations, there were people who rose to even their defense. "Corporations are people, my friend!"
The Clinton campaign has found this to be one of it's more effective smears, while the Sanders campaign reacts as if it's the worst insult possible.
Remind me again... we don't understand why white men vote Republican, right?
