A THREAD on why I hate Bernie:
58% to 42%
Trump won the GOP nomination on May 4th, that is when he became
the GOP nominee, and the GOP started lining up behind him.
Bernie waited until July to concede.
Most of us started out liking him, that changed when he became toxic.
“I have never run a negative political ad in my life,”
I guess he never did rallies before… so I guess he left himself a loophole
When people boo’ed at an Obama rally, Obama said to them, don’t boo, vote.
McCain was FAR MORE honorable than Bernie:
we all remember this exchange at a McCain rally... you won't find this kind of honor at a Bernie rally, that's for sure
Here's Bernie at his rally, saying Hillary is not qualified.
He didn't care about the Supreme Court.. he only cared about himself and his time in the limelight.
but what is a little know fact
is that, Bernie is the ONLY Non-Republican, who is on list of the
top 25 NRA Donation recipients in 2016.
Clinton Charity, or going after Bill’s personal life.
He lied and twisted the truth, and smeared Hillary on a lot of other things, why NOT jump on the Republican lies while he's at it?
Bernie posted to his website on May 2nd 2016
again after losing NY by double digits, and literally had NO path to winning the nomination,
Bernie flat out accuses Hillary of MONEY Laundering.
It was NOT money laundering:
This is the kind of stuff you can't take back, and it is DAMAGING.
he is STILL attacking Hillary on April 21st, even though he has a snowballs chance in hell of winning the primary.
It’s time for Bernie to face Reality and Avoid Going Scorched Earth
An Open Letter to Bernie Sanders:
it's the HARDEST type of election to win, and the best way is to get voters to want to build on the progress made while in office
Trump is the GOP nominee and the GOP are lining up behind him, Bernie has NO way to win.
Keep in mine, the Democratic National Convention was July 25th - 28th
Now, GOP is lined up behind Trump, now Hillary is fighting 2 campaigns.
Bernie was becoming MORE vicious at the end.
Bernie, Don’t Do This.
Scorched Earth Campaign
End of May, Bernie was still threatening to take it to the Democratic Convention and fighting Hillary's nomination.
Bernie Says Democratic Primary not a Monarchy: a Jab at Hillary being crowned.
May 19th 2016 a month after losing in NY
Then went after the DNC
claiming he was CHEATED, even though there's NO way for the DNC to rig the primary in Hillary's favor.
NYT bernie willing to harm Hillary
Scorched Earth is working pulling his numbers up, and pulling Hillary’s numbers DOWN, on purpose at the end of the primary, after he lost
and still refused to address it, and kept on with the attacks, painting Hillary as corrupt, and claiming she was money laundering
He does this AFTER he lost, and when it's clear Trump is the GOP nominee.
It's ONE thing to stay in hoping he’d get more say in the
platform, but he became far MORE vicious after April
went after her character, even after he KNEW he had lost.
Bernie Sanders Knows He Can’t Win the Nomination Now
He KNEW Trump would be dangerous for MANY poor and People of Color.
That, in my opinion is UNFORGIVABLE.
He eventually blamed Hillary, for not informing his supporters.
she was paid to give, that we later found out were
even more liberal than her rallies, which is most likely
why she didn’t want to release them, as to not hand FOX News
a few days of breathless reporting.
release his taxes, even going so far as to LIE about
his releasing them, earning him 4 Pinicios at Washington Post
Sanders’s scorched-earth campaign is a gift to Trump
and WHO can forget the Nevada Convention?
Here’s somebody who didn’t forget, let me introduce you to Tim Hodge, a Delegate for Bernie, who was at the Nevada Convention
May 15th and had this to say about it:
at the Nevada Convention:
It was to BLAME the PARTY…. so, now instead of accepting
his defeat gracefully, he is now going after the Democratic
Party, all while Trump is the GOP nominee.
being introduced and the person introducing Bernie called Hillary a
SAVE his fucking FAMILY members. This is how the Clinton’s were
repaid for that.
Party unity update: not united.
He didn’t care if the Democrats won, or that there was a Supreme Court seat open.
He ran on taking down the MAN!
in the end, he helped take down an entire country.
and he’s never fully tried to convince his followers that while he thought it was rigged during the election, in the end, he lost because 3.7 MILLION more Democrats voted for Hillary over him.
indignant that the driver crashed the car in a ditch.
a crash that he set up to happen.
all so he could have power.
I can NOT forgive this, and I can’t reward this with handing
I’m done with Bernie Sanders: Why this democratic socialist is voting for Hillary Clinton
Bernie’s not a more progressive choice, just a different one. The more I compare the two, the less I feel the Bern
I’m having a hard time being a Bernie Sanders supporter at the moment.
Constantly telling his followers that he was cheated, that it was rigged against him.
He is a LIAR with NO HONOR
I'll also add links to his racism and misogyny.
Yes, when we hear of millionaires and billionaires, we think Koch Bros, we don't think about Hollywood, where most people are extremely Liberal.
Many millionaires actually want the same things YOU want.
South Carolina Democrats: Better if Sanders ‘got lost’
It's because he LIES to the voters.
He constantly LIED about the Democratic Party, and Twisted things.. he never explained WHY things have not progressed since 1995
How he's lying? 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇
But again, he can't win if he tells the truth.. so, Bernie LIES, a LOT.
Gore was a Corporatist... Sold out to Wall St.
If Al has been elected
We would not have gone to Iraq
We'd have addressed global warming
Tax cuts would not have happened
But, Al Gore was not Liberal enough, so we got Bush instead
they're doing it again with Kamala, LYING about her.
They spent the entire primary lying so badly about Hillary, so they could drive her poll numbers down and Bernie's up
Here's some of the lies, this from Jimmy Dore
It's getting fucking OLD.
Thread what the Democrats have been doing for the last 25 years:
Keep in mind, the GOP had the House or 20 out of 24 yrs.
I don't like hypocritical people.
I do NOT like politicians who tear the other person down,
to build themselves up.
That's exactly what Bernie did, at the expense of our nation.
Worse, he did it AFTER he lost the primary
Trump's NO McCain
McCain was moderate'ish
Cassandra Fairbanks: Bernie Sanders Fan Who Flipped To Donald Trump Contacted Russian Hacker Guccifer 2.0
After MONTHS of LYING to his followers, he finally admits softly...
Bernie Sanders agrees: Democratic process not ‘rigged’
He CREATED this.
Lock her up: his supporters use Trump's attack line on Clinton
‘We have to defeat Donald Trump and elect Clinton,’ Sanders says – but protesters boo and express anger in Philadelphia over the leaked emails
Holding the party hostage, like Trump did with the Shut Down
“It would sure be a shame if the Democrats lose… but, if you pay me off with enough power, I’ll see about making sure that doesn’t happen… wink wink”
and have power he didn’t actually earn
He was forcing Hillary to adopt his platform, the very platform the Democratic voters soundly REJECTED.
Rejected by 3.7 MILLION votes.
and knew that his ticket to REAL power would only come
if the Democrats lost against Trump
again, in 2018 he said:
Bernie Sanders at a book party in DC says
“in many ways we did win the election.”
It was NOT good enough for him to stop and help Hillary win
so that she could be POTUS, and continue Democratic progress, while he would lead congress to pass some progressive bills, that Hillary WOULD have signed.
"But, he campaigned heavily for Hillary."
That's a FLAT OUT.... LIE!
Primary ENDED June 7th
Bernie conceded July 12th
Democratic Convention July 25th
By September 5th, he'd only campaigned 2 times for Hillary
This from Sept 5th
from Sept 5th
"The Vermont senator will make his first post-convention campaign pitch for Clinton on Monday in New Hampshire, where he'll be, according to the Clinton campaign, discussing her "plan to build an economy that works for everyone."
here's a piece on his speech:
(It was the only time that Sanders used the words "endorse" or "endorsing" in a speech that ran 2,161 words.
Clinton endorses Obama, calls for party unity
I LOVED how she repeated his name as she smiled warmly.
She acted with grace.
That is why we need to help elect Barak Obama our President
and that is why me must elect Barak Obama our President
and that is why we have to help elect Barak Obama our President
This is how you do it
how you act with grace, even after a loss
This is how you act like a TEAM player.
Have no doubt, our party is our team, and that is why it's important to be a team player.
That's why I have such strong dislike for Bernie.
In the end, I don't care about pure voting history
it doesn't matter, what I want is a person who is graceful, even in defeat.
Jane Sanders Tweets video of Bernie telling his supporters
Regarding voting for Hillary as POTUS
“Don’t Listen to Me”
NOPE.... he wasn't.
He directed 2 different foreign campaigns, backing brutal men... the men won their elections, BOTH ended in BLOODY revolution.
Look up the documentary Our Brand is Crisis.
The end of a primary is the END
it means the winning candidate needs to move on so they can BEAT the other party, so we can win the election and work to create progressive policies that work for everybody.
It's about WINNING!
1. The spotlight stayed on him longer
again, it is NOT supposed to be about the LOSER of a primary, it is about the COUNTRY.
We hold elections so that we can win them, so again we can work for the common good of all people.
He made it about himself.
YES.. of course he needed time.. that is why he should have conceded in April, so that there would have been plenty of time for him to get over it, and so we could unify the party... but, NOPE... he selfishly stayed in FAR too long, causing hurt feelings.
My god.... we were up against Trump, and he cared MORE about his silly Revolution, than he cared about us winning and filling a SCOTUS seat, so that we could pass progressive policies that will pass SCOTUS.
He made it about his selfish dream.
fact is... it was rigged FOR him.
If they had NO caucuses, he would have lost by an even BIGGER margin.
I wish that they'd gone with a Winner Take all delegates, she'd have beat him sooner.
Yeah... it was also LIES
You can't blame the party, when you don't read the fine print.
If Bernie would not have convinced his followers that Hillary was corrupt,
and that the Democrats cheated him... this would most likely NOT have been such a success.
But, that is EXACTLY what Bernie did..
at a time when Democrats were TRYING to unite so we could beat Bernie in the 2018 Midterms.... Bernie was again, going after the Democratic Party:
Noam Chomsky has some words for you.
Please add this to your THREADS on Bernie and why he should NOT be the nominee:
It's fantastic by @liviapolise , that goes into more of the sexism displayed by Bernie and his cult:
