1. Only Republicans win from shit stirring race baiting articles like this

Because if Hillary gets the nomination, a scorched earth campaign against Bernie supporters will hurt her in the general election.

10. Where are the articles attacking all Bernie supporters?

Because I posted one commenting on some of them. Money quote:

Despite the fact that these are obviously subjective assessments, Bernie Sanders’s most vocal supporters—mainly educated, politically leftist white men—have lost their collective minds over what they see as an media-led plot to bring Bernie down.


Next?

It's pretty clear there's a coordinated attack on Bernie supporters, and we are not standing for it. I have never seen the supporters of a candidate attacked as much as this. And you do realize you need the support of Bernie supporters if Hillary gets the nomination? Scorched earth attacks come at a price.

You need a better reading list.

I think a lot of young white men are most concerned about getting drafted to go fight another gawd damn war for the 1%. In Bernie they see the chances of that happening to be almost nil.

They'd rather make Love, not war.

61. A Sanders supporter told me that I was a bad parent for being the father of two daughters

I am closer to Sanders than Clinton on that online quiz but I live in the real world and I do not believe that Sanders is viable. Also as the father of two daughters, I would like to see a female POTUS. According to a sanders supporter, this means that I am a bad parent. I am not likely to support Sanders in the primary process because there is no way that Sanders could win in a general election but posts like that post are not helping Sanders' cause
