STOP The HATEFUL Sneering at Anyone Who Raises Hillary Clinton Concerns

NC For Bernie @NCForBernie

Stop the hateful sneering at anyone who raises Clinton concerns

http://thebernreport.com/stop-hateful-sneering-raises-concerns/ … #FeelTheBern





Questioning/challenging Clinton’s (or anyone’s) history and positions, and their impact on our future, cannot be silenced because someone else might be worse. Those demanding such silence are encouraging more suppression in a period already painfully marked by suppression. And too many are doing it hatefully.

Its practical value of late has been a site where those interested in politics will stop by to read/lurk -- and so some of us valued it as a way to reach voters. But when a site becomes too obviously one-sided, it loses interest.

for millions of people will not work. You will just find yourself out of the loop while other people find like minds that want to solve the problems in a positive and peaceful way. Why not be a part of it?

Every time you get hide -- and it's all the time, no matter what you post -- I check to make sure you're still "active." I don't know how attached you are to this place, but there is a place, a better place, should you need it.

This place is swarming with Brock paid trolls with a clear objective to alert on any and all dissenting views expressed against the queen.........welcome to the new phase of censorship.

......one day, 'woo-hoo' will be alerted on as a smear against the queen

It's frightening to what extent she's become St. Hillary, or perhaps The Virgin Hillary, she who is without sin.

NONE of her negatives have truly gone away, they've simply been papered over, whitewashed as it were.

She still supports terrible policies. She still is firmly aligned with the 1%. She is simply biding her time, pretending to embrace a more progressive stand, until after the nomination, and then we'll all get a giant Fuck You from her and her minions.

On both sides.

I strongly suspect you could take many threads, switch the candidate names, and both factions would find the remarks on the other side equally offensive.

I'd like to see us all – myself included – try harder to make it about the facts and issues, rather than mere name-calling.

Amazing how time after time the Left gets beat down yet still stands tall for all the best reasons.

Against all odds we struggle for the voiceless rest of the planet which has been beat into a bloody pulp.

My deepest thanks to those who continue fighting.

I'm surprised your post hasn't been shut down. My post was hidden when I made a joke involving Hillary and rhyming Obama with llama. It was a thing of beauty and humor.

So sad to see it go....

expressed on the Thom Hartmann show by Thom himself. He has been a reliable progressive forever and goes back a long way with Bernie, but he will not allow any criticism of a certain candidate and last week cut off a caller who tried to express concerns about her.

I found it sad and somewhat unnerving.

If Hillary refuses to adopt a substantial number of of Bernie's platform planks, she will effectively be letting Trump run to her left and to my way of thinking, that's the only way Trump will win. He's begun adopting the most popular of Bernie's ideas, at least the stated purposes of Bernie's ideas, to bring jobs back to the middle class, for example. Trump has said he will vote against the TPP and he is against all these trade deals because they're bad business. Don't think that these ideas are not getting Trump a lot of independent followers.

If Hillary runs to the right of Trump, she is seriously endangering her whole campaign. If she adopts the best of Bernie's proposals, including his refusal to vote for the TPP, she is making it much more likely that she will beat Trump.

I tried to have a conversation about inclusiveness and was immediately accused of calling the indictment fairy. Vicious unfounded attacks and incredulity that I had the nerve!
oh well, I tried. Conversation is so limited. I should have known better.
