That's been going on in all corners of the Internet. Many FUD spreaders.

Many hand-wringers. Many "predicting" (promoting?) their doomsday scenarios. Many expressing regret, doubts, fears... and I have to tell you, those types of posts go far beyond the mere act of "seeking comfort" among like-minded individuals. They, instead, are doing little more than fear-mongering and trying to DE-motivate people. I even see it here from time to time.

All I'm trying to say is that we should be on the lookout for it. Call it out when you see it. Don't let it get to you and pour cold water on it so that their toxic way of thinking doesn't spread to others.

It serves NO useful purpose at all. It's just another example of how people are oddly willing to do and say things that create an atmosphere of fear and hopelessness and negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.



Lindsey's delicate and soft-spoken Southern Gentleman mannerisms won't help him now.

Bye, Lindsey!

Nobody is doing that.

And here it goes... cue the anti-Bernie rants
Nobody is doing that. But I can tell you that what we're hearing from that camp is clearly anti-Biden and a backhanded effort to subvert the Biden campaign. ONLY the winner gets to make decisions on how to run the campaign and who to include.

Predictable outrage to ensue.
It's not as though he deserves praise for trying to create division, suspicion, distrust and resentment.

What useful purpose does it serve? His "advice" was unsolicited and inappropriate. Biden's campaign and the party had ALREADY given the Sanders campaign every reasonable consideration and accommodation. Negotiations and compromises were made in good faith. Bernie already participated. That part is OVER now. OVER! Biden doesn't need any former rivals "advising" him how to run his campaign.

The campaign is over. Our party has chosen our nominee.

This type of backhanded and back-channel "leaked" critique serves no good purpose. It's just something that creates resentment and distrust. It's pulling scabs off of old wounds and pouring salt in. It's a source of negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

Surely people have better and more productive things to do with his time than to take cheap shots at Biden from the sidelines. The GOP is already doing enough of that. Why add to it?
