It is like Bernie supporters are being groomed by

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by BooScout (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

psychopaths to think that they and their leader are perfect. That is the first step in getting people to scapegoat. The only adult way to be safe is to accept good and bad in yourself and your leaders. That way republicans in sheep's clothing on the DU and elsewhere will not be able to manipulate Bernie supporters into going into a frenzy destroying the Democrats. Mistakes were made by both the DNC and Bernie's staff. Hillary's campaign has done nothing here. She has made mistakes and will do so again sometime. Don't let GOP **** disturbers log onto the DU as Democrats and convince you that any campaign is perfect. None ever is. No person ever is. Stop the black and white thinking. Stop scapegoating Hillary for this. Stop thinking Bernie is all good. He's lovely but not an absolutely perfect leader. That only exists when psychopaths are around and they 'grow people down' to childlike thinking. We are all the Democrats. The Adults in the room. Let's act like it and accept we, and those who lead us with their campaigns, are never always 100% spot on with every act and thought.

But based on the OTT reactions by some Bernie supporters here - with nary a recognition that there was a cause for the DNC's action - I will have a very bad taste in my mouth if I have to vote for Bernie in the GE.

But vote for him I will if that is the case. I know what's at stake.

Response to Leftyforever (Reply #27)

34. I wouldn't know.

I would imagine the TV networks that carry the debates have the last say as to what time is available as per their schedule, especially at this time of year when "Christmas specials" have been booked far in advance, and sponsors have already paid for specific airtime slots.

I can tell you that for some people (myself among them), weekend debates are preferable to week-nights, due to work schedules. You can't please all the people all the time - and some people will always find timing to be convenient or not, depending on their own schedules.

Most importantly, though, in this day and age, there is no reason for anyone to "miss" a debate they want to see. Most people have DVRs and/or access to watching the debates - at a convenient time for them - on line.

I always find it amusing to see a poster here rant about how they "can't see" the debate because it's on a night when they have other plans - when that same poster talks about recording "The Walking Dead" so they can watch it when convenient.

You're either interested in the debates, or you aren't. And if you are, their original broadcast time is of no consequence.

I also have one of them new-fangled recording devices, if something airs at a time that's inconvenient for me to watch.

So Saturday night debates are a problem? In what respect, Charlie?

doesn't mean that people are not doing other things on Saturday night. For instance, many go grocery shopping on Saturday night. It is the last Saturday before Christmas to go shopping.
Besides, later on Saturday night there are so many discos to go to.
And I can't help it if you folks don't get invited to parties. Perhaps you might try changing your deodorant.

more debates? People have been asking her for more debates and on weeknights and she refuses to budge. Major organizations have asked for more debates but still she says no. Major publications think that DWS is doing it because it helps Hillary and I and many on DU think that's the case.

Debbie and Hillary are good friends and there's nothing more that DWS wants than for Hillary to be president. I mean, c'mon. It's out in the open and very obvious to all that DWS is trying very hard to get Hillary elected when she's supposed to be unbiased in her role as DNC chair.

She is up anywhere from 20-35 points in the polls. She has about 300 times the endorsements he has. The Dem base has her back something like 3 to 1.

I've not been bowled over by her campaign so far at all but there is no denying that Hillary's campaign is winning right now. Why any moderately intelligent person would allow themselves to believe that she would risk her candidacy to come after a man so far behind her it's ridiculous makes absolutely no sense.

In other words, the "evidence" that has yet to be disclosed is THE evidence - and we all have to wait around for it, and assume its existence in the first place.

highly unlikely. However, I agree that DWS would never have done this without, at a minimum, consulting with the Clinton campaign.

Who the DNC's candidate is has been blatantly obvious since 2012 to anyone with a brain. Whether said brain possessor(s) admit(s) it or not is another issue.

Good thinking.

In other words, HRC and DWS are guilty unless they prove their innocence - which they can't, if they are innocent of wrongdoing, because they can't prove a negative.

Words like "psychopaths" and "republicans in sheep's clothing" in a post describing fellow DUers is sad.

102. True.

While "disgusting" or "deliberately offensive to the vast majority of DUers" may have been more accurate, but I don't believe in excessive nitpicking of a poster's word choice.

I'm not saying I won't vote for her if she is the Dem candidate in the general, I'm saying if I have to vote for her, I will hold my nose and do so with much distaste and feeling no cause to celebrate when and if she becomes pres.

You either don't think they use/are psychopaths or you think there is a magic bubble around the GOP's enemies in the Democrats and that you don't think the GOP would manipulate democratic voters on the internet to serve their interest in 2016? Which is it you don't agree with? They are both obvious.

Maybe you are saying that it is condescending for me to assume that the GOP are using Bernie because you don't see Hillary as the front runner? But she is far ahead.

If Bernie supporters—who apparently are very childlike in applegrove's mind—aren't careful they will be manipulated by DU "republicans in sheep's clothing" into going into a "frenzy." She is advising Bernie supporters to try to be adults so they can be "safe" from becoming psychopaths.

The purple language might be an effect of posting late at night, but it's really unfortunate.

Last edited Sat Dec 19, 2015, 09:21 AM - Edit history (1)

Look, I do not put ANY low past the GOP. If they have to do things that would make Stephen King lose his lunch, that would make Hitler, Stalin and Mao look like Camelot's Knights of the Round Table, they will. Part of the reason why I affirm again and again that I will vote for WHO-EV-ER the Democrats nominate is because Florida was a perfect example of GOP using misguided people to win. I have been yelled at many times on this site because people who were NOT in Florida keep telling me that Nader was not a trick used to steal the election. The really hateful part of my soul wishes that these more liberal than thou people could be forced to listen to all the Talk Radio, Smarmy local news, and Water Cooler talks where people BRAGGED about how easy it was for them to pretend to be principled liberals, only to rip their mask off on Wednesday morning. This was the trolling that filled the waves of Tampa radio from, among others, then local radio jock Glenn Beck. He went from being a low rated show to being promoted to where he makes MORE money than Rush Limbaugh, because many people that called pretending to be "principled liberals" called to brag "hey, I was a republican ALL ALONG Glen!"

Now..
THAT being said.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is someone who has a strong track record of FAILURE, who has lost the 2008 Hillary bid, and TWO mid-terms, which gave congress to the GOP. Need I bring up how in Kentucky, Alison Blunders and Crimes ran a campaign demonizing Obama, where she refused to admit that she even VOTED for the man the country did, and acted like she was Joan of Arc being interrogated by the Inquisition. Do I need to bring up how Mitch McConnell went from being vulnerable to going right back into action? Need I bring up Florida, my home state, where she ran Chain gang former vocal GOP Charlie Crist as governor, or for that matter, for good friend Alex Sink, who initially lost to Rick Scott. Need I mention how she is opposing Alan Grayson, the one election night success story in Florida, and trying to get yet another former GOP to run for Congress?

The fact is, Debbie wants to hide the fact that she is a FIASCO, not just incompetent, a FIASCO. Just because she is "loyal" Hillary is letting her drive one of the most important elections in our nation's history. Of course is Debbie going to be competent and honest, NO! She is not only going to cheat, she will be incompetent about cheating, and the result of course will be feeding the GOP tons of ammunition for the general! Keep in mind, every purple state, including Florida and Ohio, are going to need to face stiff resistance in November, including:efforts to make sure anyone not white cannot vote, "lone wolf gunmen" walking around with guns, cops that want to be the next Cop to kill someone and get slapped on the wrist, and we are not even touching the fact that Florida's votes are still easily stolen, especially with Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio more than willing to "help." The very problems Debbie should have been focusing on are still there, made even worse by the fact she is so desperately trying to prove she is not the best good luck charm the GOP has had. And what is the battle cry, but a whip crack, given by DWS, to the people who know she will betray and insult them, yet again, seconds after the finish line.

We will gladly erect the gallows for the GOP, but that is demoralizing knowing Debbie cannot wait to hang us on it before the corpses of the GOP get cold.

and of course, there is Hillary. Yes, I will admit there are far worse his party would offer, but constantly, we are told "no other choice", and it sure does not help to hear many of the 2008 faithful slam and abandon Obama, as if the past eight years were some interregnum until the Holy Queen returns to her rightful throne. Her book "Hard Choices", aka "why I would already be in war in Syria, unlike the man my Husband called a 'wuss'" was a blatant f*** you backstab to a person that frankly, saved her career. If Obama did not take her in, many people would have CHEERED. It sure does not help that in every issue from Syria to Ferguson to KXL to TPP, Hillary only speaks after massive poll taking and foot dragging. Granted, I can get used to 11th hour changes from positions she supported, but do not yell at us for not feeling confident when it is apparent Hillary will only swerve out of traffic at the last second. Add to this that because Debbie is "loyal" (gee Hillary, ask Florida Dems how loyal she is), she is letting Debbie drive this Bus.

And I will say this to sum: again, we do NOTNOTNOT need another self sanctimonious temper tantrum vote or stay at home non vote, which is every bit a GOP vote as the ones your idiot GOP relatives and co workers are waiting in line to cast. But as I said earlier, people who really love this party, and indeed, who want to HELP any nominee, Hillary included win, are not going to just say "yes" to everything. Elvis was not helped by all his yes man goons that kept getting him drugs and fried peanut butter sandwiches.
