Now Bernie supporters are being called the "Talibern"? How is this not vile name-calling?

... followed by a pathetic tirade of endless insults.

Is this is how Hillarians think they are going to bring Bernie supporters "to heel"? ahh .. I mean ..
to support the Democrat's presumptuous nominee?

Really? Bernie supporters and the Taliban combined. I think there must be more brains, and decency at the ConservativeCave than what I'm seeing here.
Pronunciation: /ˈtaləˌban/
A fundamentalist Muslim movement whose militia took control of much of Afghanistan from early 1995, and in 1996 took Kabul and set up a radical Islamic state. The movement was forcibly removed from power by the US and its allies after the September 11, 2001, attacks. .

JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Sun Jun 5, 2016, 01:31 PM, and

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I won't vote to hide this in a protected group.
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: It is unacceptable to call Sanders supporters the Talibern.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: This would have been tolerable a month ago, but, now it's just absurdly inappropriate. This party has some serious unifying to do and we best be leading that mission here at DU.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Ironically, if this was GDeee I'd vote to hide it. But its obvious this is a HC section with a Bernie supporter having a fit.


So when do the primaries end? I'm really getting tired of this bull shit.

Thank you.

protected group. Groups are not supposed to be a free for all, they are supposed to provide 'safe havens' away from having to hear opposing viewpoints that the group feels will disrupt/derail the desired conversation/direction/tone of the group.

We see what tone they like. They should go to their Clinton Cave if they want to have free for all hate spewing fits. Jurors like that should be banned from jury duty.

They attend the World Wide Junior High. As soon as I see that blue H with the red arrow to the right, I back out. I'm not EVEN reading their shite anymore. And that's what it is: shite.

To offer on your own behalf, names and slander is all you've got left.

They do it because they are bankrupt of any real ideas or solutions.

how small they are. They have nothing better in their lives than to sit on a piece of workout equipment and think of "clever" ways to insult us.
