Which is fair, and I totally respect that! I just don’t see how Joe Biden is going to get us to, well, any of that. I think that’s the crux/tl;dr of my argument.

I don’t really follow people who’ve been endorsing him. I was aware of Joe, but not Marianne...I want to say Williamson maybe? That’s the name that popped into my head, but I have no idea if it has any basis in reality. Read more

That’s a very good excerpt.  I can’t get to the article now, but I’ve opened it to read later.  Thank you!!!

I completely agree with this and I think you stated it very well, that I don’t know that I can add much of value, lol.  But yeah, I 100% think a woman is electable, and fuck those who said “I like her, but I don’t think a woman can win.”  If you think someone’s the best candidate, vote for them in the primary Read more

Yo, I was not at all aware of the low information voters thing. I, personally, haven’t seen that online at all or within my circles, but it’s definitely vile and racist. I can see why and where you’re coming from with that frame of reference. You’re absolutely right that that kind of attitude will win no one any Read more

I’ve said this in other comments, so I won’t dive too much into it here, but there was definitely toxicity coming from supporters in all camps.  Bernie’s supporters were amplified by 2016 and media coverage.  I 100% agree that there are toxic Bernie supporters and I do not condone that, but I’ve also been attacked and Read more

Just trying to book-end my comment. If there’s one thing I learned from English class in high school it’s that you have to restate your thesis in your conclusion in a different and insightful way! ;P

You’re welcome!  I know I can let my emotions get the better of me sometimes despite my best efforts, so I try my best to listen when someone says I’m out of line. Read more

Because kinja, I have no idea which one of my comments above this you’re replying to, so I can’t really address what you’re replying to. I can only assume you only read one or two of my comments and moved on with your life, which is fine and your choice, but I was only dismissive to one person on this thread who was Read more

I apologize for how I read your comment. I did make an inference based on your statement after being primed for people switching from Warren to Biden based on this article and other comments under the article. That’s on me, and I am genuinely sorry for that. You are absolutely right on that part. Read more

First off, fuck you. I never participated in any of the online harassment. What I’ve posted here is more than I’ve posted pretty much everywhere else and I, personally, have been trying to be very respectful about the whole thing. I haven’t hurled any insults or participated in any form of misogyny. You said Bernie Read more

Hmm.  I wasn’t aware of David Sirota.  I admittedly only follow policies more than the actual people, so I’m not sure who’s involved in his campaign.  That’s definitely disappointing, but I still think that despite that, he’s a far better choice than Biden would ever be.

So, you’re ok with Biden’s behavior then? The way he sniffs women’s hair and touches people without their consent? You’re ok with not pushing for universal healthcare and pretty much maintaining the status quo? You’re ok with more Republican compromise and ceding more ground to the right? Because, in my mind, that’s Read more

I’m not saying that it’s just one person. There are absolutely mean people online. As much as it sucks, the internet is a crazy toxic place, so yeah, you’re going to see very passionate people who channel their energy in negative ways and troll/bot accounts actively trying to sabotage campaigns.

But again, this mentality of yours makes absolutely no sense to me. Every time someone makes this argument, all I can think of is the below meme, and it’s 100% true. A small contingent of Bernie supporters are absolutely very vocal and passionate to a degree that can come across as alienating. I won’t deny that, but
