Bernie or Bust Faithfull are Heroes to Me

It simply amazes me, how contrary to be a progressive, this whole paradigm is, of the "I'm with Her" diehards; no matter how much bad faith is documented; and how much loyalty to oligarh'ism, Hillary Rodham Clinton resume empirically denotes. Even worse, is the fact that her loyalists are not just opponents, but that they actually despise me, and others alike, because I'm for Bernie Sanders. Now there's so much hate here, at DU, against U.S. Bern'rs, there's even a thread lambasting Bern's or Bust as not being heroes.

Bern or Bust faithful, are heroes to me!

All things considered, here we are, loyal to a 70ish ole man, who has spent all his life, 99% of the time, on the progressive side of things, L O N G before doing so was popular; and because we dare to be democratic about the Democratic election, we are disparaged - regularly.

Do you not understand, Bern or Bust is a commitment to U.S.?

Have those who look down upon U.S., their fellow citizens, with such disdain, ever even considered the fact that you likely need our vote, to win the general election?

Is there any time, ever, of Hillarians taking the time to review Clinton's actions, speaking louder than words, of how she represented a rapist, or Walmart (that rapes all of U.S., including their workers - monetarily), or Monsanto?

Or how about the fact that she took millions of dollars - from foreigners - as Secretary of State?

That really doesn't bother you? ..................................... REALLY!

If Bernie had done 1/10th of those things that Hillary has done, we would never be backing the guy.

NEVER!

Bernie Sanders is one true, red white and blue American, so good at what he does, he gets 25% of Republicans, to vote for him, in Vermont. This is a guy that Hillary's loyal lambast for his wife's tenure at a school that gones bust, as if such were Senator Sanders fault;

but you find no fault at all - whatsoever - of Hillary's vanishing 30,000 emails, and that of her aides too....

REALLY????

The definitions of heroes, are warped, as the very 1st item in most dictionary's, online, state it is a "man" distinguished. So in that sense, neither I, nor half of Sanders followers, fit the bill. But as for the 3rd or 4th, define (depending on where you're looking) it states a heror is "someone who fights for a cause".

As I've been called both a Quixote and a hero, I'll own both the quixotic moniker and this latter denote of fighting for a cause.

To all my fellow Anonymous, 99%'rs, decent progressives and, especially, my fellow Bern'rs

THANK YOU - you are heroes to me - as those who are fighting a noble and just, cause.

As for Hillarians, you are diehard loyal to her, and that's your choice; because you've adopted a stance that "what difference does it make" for her email server, vanishing items, decades of workings with the dark side; and don't even care about things like ManPADs.

What difference does your posture make - to me - is a permanent line in the sand. Hillary Rodham Clinton took money from Goldman Sachs, who deliberately destroyed our eToys.com public company, and my career, with my daughter being abducted and an eToys shareholder (Robert Alber) having to shoot/kill, a career criminal, when he turned down their bribe.

Goldman Sachs partnered with Bain Capital, using a MNAT law firm partner, arranged to be the prosecutor over our case. https://www.justice.gov/archive/olp/colmconnollyresume.htm

And the Public Corruption Task Force was shut down, to cover all that up - with career federal prosecutors being ordered to silence (as was those who raised questions about Hillary's non government email server), while Eric Holder didn't do a DAM thing about it.http://articles.latimes.com/2008/mar/20/local/me-shakeup20

With Bernie Sanders, I have a 99% chance of getting a new U.S. Attorney General that will look into the matter.

Unfortunately, with Hillary Clinton, the opposite is more likely to be true. I'll have a 99% chance she will never look into the matter. She's been taking money from big oil, big pharma, foreign persons and Goldman Sachs. The chances she'll pick anything other than a female version of Eric Holder, is not even a rhetorical question. For dang sure, with her as President, I'm not ever going to see justice.

The fact that Hillarians don't care about that - due to the diehardiness - is just plain sick.

As for the general election - we'll see.

3. The Benghazi issue is something you should care about. 5000 ManPADs went missing, under her auspice.

 

And your inference that its wrong, to remark up a start fact, just demonstrates how obtuse you desire to be.

2. Personally, I'm not interested in enabling the Trump apocalypse.

Very rarely does the person I support in the Primary end up being the nominee.

Bernie came really close this time. Been a hell of a trailblazer and advocate. This movement is not over.

That being said, every person should vote their conscience.

IMHO that should includes some thought about those who would be most damaged by a Trump presidency.

The most ardent supporters, the blind supporters and super-delegates with them, are more responsible for the Trump presidency, if it happens, than Bernie Bros or the millions who decide to sit it out and not vote for her.

It is not the job of voters to support the mistakes of the party.

Hillary really betrayed Andrea Mitchell... The entire context of this report was of a solemn nature... A Funeral so to speak...

Andrea Mitchell "I do not see this report as ...ANYTHING BUT... DEVASTATING!"

Chuck Todd "After this I don't think that she could get confirmed for Attorney General!"

The "0+0=0" crap has been debated ad nauseam here. Skinner himself has debunked it. If it isn't clear to you now, it never will be.

Hillary may not be your ideal candidate. I support her completely, and there are still plenty of things that I disagree with her on, or that give me pause. But anyone who has been so jaded by the primary to believe that she doesn't offer a better vision for everyone in this country who considers themselves left of center - including the most ardent liberals - has lost their mind.

But for different reasons.

Trump is a buffoon who knows little to nothing, which could ruin our country.

But Hillary will have the backing of establishment Democrats and will mean-test Social Security, thus ruining it, with the support of half the Democrats and all the Republicans. She'll also have us at war with Iran so fast you're head will spin.

The fact is BOTH are horrible choices for our country, so it IS a "0+0=0" sum game.

I believe all who are on board with Hillary, can't justify their actions - with sound logic.

And, as you can see from my notes, in the thread (that I've testified to - btw - under penalty of {many times}) - I've got good reason to worry; because my life, liberty and children's inheritance (stolen) - is on the line.

She took money from those who stole from me

Therefore, she has my money (though it may be .000000941 percent)

How would you feel, as a victim of Capone, who had your daughter abducted;
about anybody telling you it is Nitti's "time".

22. If I had to choose between Otto Wels and Donald Trump I would have voted for Chairman Wels.

Everything else is commentary.

26. First of all, there's still a chance, Mitt is coming. Secondly, given the choices, I'd rather have

 

Romney, instead of the other 2.

Hillary will have U.S. Dems, fighting each other - and the GOP being glorified, all the while.

With Mitt there - I can target him - and the press just might pay attention.

34. Romney would be Ludwig Kass in that analogy.

I would support him against Hitler, too... Hell , I would have supported Ernst Thalmann, the Communist, and prayed for the best.

To recap if I was a Verman citizen in 1932 I would have voted for

First choice- Otto Wels (Social Democratic Party of Germany)

Second choice -Ludwig Kaas -(Centre Party)

Third Choice-Ernst Thalmann - (Communist Party)

35. Hmmm, let's take a look at that (perverted) sense of logic.

 

I'm going to write in Bernie's name, no matter what; because I'm a Progressive, votig for a Progressive.

And you - dare to tell me, call me, a faux progressive - condescendingly; because my vote for anyone else - but your gal - makes me a Trumpists.

As it is, odds likely, you are going to get your way, with her the nominee - we'll really see.

It seems to me that Trump, like Hillary, is the one afraid to debate Bernie, in California.

And those actions, speak much louder, than your bogus words, haughtily

43. I'm not allowing a Trump Presidency, the people voting for Hillary are. Bernie or Bust.

I'm going to stand up for what I value and believe in as many others are. Bernie sends a message for people to stand up and take action. That a President can never do anything alone. That a President will need the people. And I'll be damned if I ever vote Hillary just because of Trump.

No. I want this lesser of two evil shit to end and many others do too. I believe in people and their values.
I believe a lot of people are waking up because of Bernie Sanders. Think about that. They aren't waking up because of Hillary or Donald. We will stand up and fight corruption and bigotry. A president can't do that alone.

No matter what happens, nothing will get done if we keep giving in to corruption.
Nothing will ever get done if money continues to influence candidates.
I will fight that throughout the election, that includes fighting Hillary if she wins the nomination.

46. In many ways the Bernie Or Bust meme is made up.

 

Clinton was never a consideration for my vote. NEVER. I didn't vote for her husband, I didn't vote for Obama or Kerry (Gore and Dukakis were the only democratic presidential votes I cast in my lifetime).

The ONLY thing that made me decide to register democratic was Bernie Sanders joining the party. I will change my registration as soon as the primary is over.

The democratic party abandoned its values back in the 90s when it became the party of big business. When the democratic president declared "the era of big government is over", just solidifying the nonsense that government is a bad thing and can't do anything right.. when if you worked in the business world for 5 minutes, you would find out that ANY large company is EXACTLY the same.

I am guessing there are very few (if anyone) who considered voting for Clinton and then decided, that's it, "I'm Bernie or Bust". People have simply adopted this as way of expressing that we are not voting for another corporate candidate. We didn't plan to and no amount of fear mongering is going to change it. If you want our vote, you put forth a candidate that shares our values. If you don't want our vote.. go with Clinton and enjoy 4 years of Trump.

the actual choices. One is sane and the other is insane. I don't agree with the sane person much of the time, but she's definitely safer around the nuclear codes. Trump could start WWIII and he'll be so self-obsessed he won't realize he's done it.

50. Remember when Trump said he could shoot someone in Time Square and would not lose any support?

 

The IG report came out yesterday verifying that Hillary lied through her teeth about her private server and emails all last year. What was the result? Her camp immediately parsed the report, actually claiming it validated her lies. And the lies didn't phase a single one of her supporters here. Just business as usual. To me, it shows how untrustworthy Hillary is, that she will lie about anything and everything, and would be as secretive as Nixon. No thanks. I'm a lifelong Democrat, have worked for the party for many years, and I'm saying no to this bullshit. The party has been taken over by Clinton Corporate Democrats. They jammed her down our throats and they are on their own.

But, Hillary fans have been longing for their bubble and will continue to ignore the brewing unsecured server mess until it blows up in their faces and they can't ignore it.

We use to call it something else

53. I would say everybody involved including the voters, OWS, Bernie, and

even people like Elizabeth Warren have the courage of their convictions. The word heroic is a bit strong although I would consider the people willing to go jail during OWS were pretty heroic. I'm almost willing to put Bernie and Elizabeth into that category too because instead of taking the easy way out in order to become rich and ensure they keep their jobs they are willing to turn down millions of dollars in easy money and risk their job in order to fight for workers, the poor, and the disabled. Not many people have the character to do that.

94. Not to me, and I am a Bernie supporter

I think your post draws a false dichotomy. Yes, Bernie is 1000 times better than Hillary in a lot of respects. Yes, I would much rather have him as president than Hillary. And yes, everyone who has been fighting the good fight on his behalf is to be commended.

But Bernie or Bust is not about getting Bernie nominated over Hillary or getting Bernie elected president. Bernie or Bust is about refusing to vote for Hillary in the general election if Bernie is not on the ballot, which, at least for swing state voters, will do nothing but potentially enable Donald Trump to become president. And as someone who supports Bernie and all that he stands for, I refuse to play any part in allowing a racist meglomaniac to get into the White House.

I have periodically flirted with the idea of casting a protest vote in November, but only because I live in a solid blue state. If I lived in a swing state I wouldn't even have to think about it.
