"Sad and pathetic attempt to say what happened to Sander's is OK."
If you loved Sanders so much, why didn't you vote for the candidate he voted for, Hillary Rodham Clinton?
Because both you and Sheeple have more pride than perspicacity.
You became emotionally invested in the actor.
The actor you loved read the script, but you didn't.
The actor you loved told you what's in the script.
But you two ignored him, because you were so mad that your favorite actor didn't win the Democratic party's big award.

This would require empathy.. Do you really not understand how putrid Republicans scam their base? A lot of people are not responding with logic when confronted with emotional information - they respond with emotion to combat logic. This is why we see such horrible stagnation, particularly in the Southern states where the emotional divide has been groomed for sooooo looooooong.
The Russian attack didn't produce a singular effect against "democracy" (which isn't really clear that it has) - it rode on the hideous nature of Republican stupidity for falling for emotion over logic. It simply does.
America was essentially stuck with each other at a Thanksgiving dinner.
That division of the most potent weapon (Bernie) included creating a fake one - the Republicans.
I completely agree that the Democrat party is a corporation and not a body of democratic values. Their "award" is far worse than worthless, it's denigrating. I want none of them, at all. It does make me upset that progressives must run as Democrats, however, they are gaining positions that independents apparently cannot.
Even a puritopian pony as flagrant as myself can admit that. It's good to outgrow my misconceptions, but it's essential to use their effective strategy.
But Bernie is just a man, and I keep seeing Republicans equate leadership with infallibility. Republican strategy requires majority non-idealogically driven to vote. It has worked for them up to now by keeping this division popular.
Do we need to doubt the women that accuse Clarence Thomas on the word of Orin Hatch? Thomas was appointed, Anita Hill was demonized. Emotion over logic, thanks to Hatch.
Do we need to doubt the women that accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault ON THE WORD OF ORIN HATCH?! AGAIN?! Guess who's being demonized this time? The victim, again. Republican legislators are far more damaging to democracy than Russian agents.
