From Dkos: Should Bernie Sanders be fundraising off a conspiracy? [View all]

And instead of coming forward this morning and owning up to it, the Bernie camp threw 1 of the 4 culprits under the bus and began fundraising off this by proclaiming it is proof of their “Hillary-DNC” conspiracy theory. ‘See! See! This is why they are having the debates on Saturday! We told you so! Now give us money and spread that conspiracy theory, please and thank you!!!! 😉’

It’s a clever tactic. Turning yourself into the victim when you committed the crime. But it’s also a dirty tactic because it impugns Hillary’s integrity by saying she’s involved in a conspiracy theory with the DNC.

However, the premise of this conspiracy theory relies on Hillary needing to have the Sanders campaign stripped of its data to win. Hillary is up 30-points nationwide, up in Iowa, will dominate Super Tuesday, and will win most of the superdelegates. So why would Debbie feed right into the “Hillary-DNC” conspiracy theory with Hillary in such high standing?

Ironically, Bernie Sanders is hailed as some sort of political saint. Yet as of late, he has been employing some questionable tactics against Hillary.

After declaring Americans are sick and tired of Hillary’s “e-mails,” Bernie is now bringing up the FBI investigation again [even though the FBI is investigating the security of the server; Hillary is NOT under direct FBI investigation]. Invoking “FBI” is an intentional and systematic way to brainwash voters against Hillary Clinton. Bernie is [yet again] doing the job of the Koch Brothers by attacking Hillary over her e-mails.

The Republicans have been employing similar smear tactic against Hillary’s integrity for years, successfully brainwashing a huge segment of our population to be Hillary-hating sheep. The right-wing must love watching their strategy work even more effectively on the left, hoping Bernie can achieve Nader-like status and ruin all of Obama's progress.

Point is — Bernie’s campaign is not staying true to Bernie’s word when he fundraises by impugning Hillary’s integrity with a conspiracy theory. It’s an unfortunate development for him and his many supporters that seem to think Hillary is a demon. Y’all are in some weird company with the Republicans on that one.
