I 100% do not get the vitriol aimed at Clinton. She's not ideal, but witnessing the complete unwillingness to settle for a less than Jesus-level perfect candidate really makes the Bernie crowd sound like they're playing Baby's First Election Cycle. Sack up, kids, progress isn't winning this election but it's not precisely losing, either, unless everyone decides it's hopeless and stays home and uses none of the momentum.
But the vitriol aimed at Sanders voters since last November is just fine. I didn't take it personally or anything.
Not what I meant at all, bud. Let the hate flow on.
I will. This thread isn't about political realities. It's about the way supposed friends demonstrate contempt over said politics. It's when you find out that a "friend" of 10+ years wasn't really your friend, you were just pixels on her screen and an occasional advantage to be used. Or an army buddy you've known since 1987 that has decided that you are scum for not riding the whole Sanders thing down in flames.
It's about the fact that most of the Jesii may forgive, but I am not any of them.
It's gotten ugly as fuck. And it sucks that the ugliness is coming from a movement I support. And it sucks that you've been a target of it.
