Is is reasonable to consider anyone who denigrates, divides and weakens the Democratic party itself to be an "enemy" of the party? Anyone who continually promotes LIES that the Democratic party is the "party of the elite" or the "party of the one-percent" is someone who is HELPING the Republicans and Trump.

Is it unfair to conclude that anyone who spreads the LIE that "there's no difference" between the Democrats and the GOP is an enemy of the Democratic party? Is it fair to characterize that type of harmful rhetoric as blatantly trying to SABOTAGE the Democratic party?

When anyone smears the Democratic party with that type of negativity it generates apathy.

When you have apathy, that discourages voter turnout.

When you have low voter turnout that gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "ideologically bankrupt".

It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "feeble".

It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "corrupt".

It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure".

It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is "the party of the one-percent".

It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is the "party of the elite".

It's NOT TRUE that there's "no difference between Democrats and Republicans."

It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "do-nothings".

It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party "doesn't care about climate change."

It's NOT TRUE that the Democrats "focus too much" on diversity.

It's NOT TRUE that people who the refuse to vote for an African-American because of his skin color "aren't racists".

It's also NOT TRUE that the Democrats who "are very big into diversity" aren't "particularly sympathetic" to the working class.

That type of hate-speech serves no good purpose. Showing such open contempt and hostility for the Democratic party is a GIFT to the GOP.

These are the types of lies that only serve to divide and weaken Democrats. They are the type of lies that give voters NO REASON to come out and support Democrats.

All I'm saying is that it's perfectly reasonable for anyone to conclude that anyone who purposely and knowingly SABOTAGES the Democratic party like this is NO ALLY and NO FRIEND OF DEMOCRATS. Why would it be unfair to use the word "enemy" of anyone who engages in these Sarandonesque attacks that are purposely intended to weaken and destroy the Democratic party?

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
