I never used the term in 2016 because I thought it was too broad. But I still subscribed to the belief that virtually ALL online attacks in the Dem primary originated with Sanders supporters. THEY were the sole aggressors. But I see things more clearly now.

While it's true that some #Bernie supporters engaged in vicious attacks, that behavior is not exclusive to them. Saying positive things today about Sanders or negative things about Pelosi and Dem leaders can result in furious personal insults and smears.

This cycle, I see politics through an issue-focused rather than a candidate-focused lens. And I want to acknowledge that dismissing all progressives & leftists who are inspired by @BernieSanders as raging "bros" invisibilizes many young voters and people of color.
