I'm not just mad because I think Bernie Sanders is better on policy, and empirically better as a political candidate. I'm also mad because I don't want Donald Trump to be President of the United States! YOU COULDN'T HAND HIM A BETTER DEMOCRAT TO RUN AGAINST! God they LIE OVER AND OVER AGAIN! I don't know what's worse: their LIES or their IGNORANCE in Washington and New York. "Oh, Hillary's great! Hillary's great! I'll close my eyes to all the numbers." Finally, we go to Natalie Jackson at Huffington Post, saying, 'Until we have more polls," And this is just one indication, I'm using this as an example and to be fair to her there are about a dozen articles today saying things just exactly like this, "and as long as Clinton is still battling Sanders, the general election numbers will be unstable. So don't freak out about an individual poll result. Wait until June for more stability and in the meantime look at the polling averages. HuffPost Pollster's averages show Clinton 3 points ahead in Florida, 1 point in front in Ohio and leading by 5 points in Pennsylvania." Wait a minute, first of all - I just quoted you 3 polls from TODAY. TODAY. Let alone, EVERY OTHER POLL showing Bernie Sanders winning. You CAN'T show me a SINGLE poll done in the last - what - 2 months, 3 months, 4 months... that has Hillary Clinton doing better against ANY Republican than Bernie Sanders. You can't show it. It doesn't exist. I can show you DOZENS of polls. Right? "Oh, it's just one poll!" NO, it's NOT one poll! That's a LIE!
And in order to reassure us, and not have us freak-out, "Oh don't worry, in my combination of polls: Hillary Clinton is up by ONE POINT in Ohio, to Donald-Frikken-Trump. No, no, no - I think you missed it. That is not a reason NOT to freak-out. That is a reason to freak-out. So, OK, the arrogance of the Democratic Party, and every pundit in Washington, New York continues. "We know better than the American people, we know Hillary Clinton is a 'wonderful' candidate, we know that Bernie Sanders can't win (even though EVERY POLL shows the opposite). And we know you shouldn't take Donald Trump seriously, c'mon! He's less popular than lice! No, don't worry about Hillary's negative 20 in favorability in the state of Florida! Don't worry about it! Close your eyes to it! Everything'll be fine!" No, I'm telling you right now. Everything is not going to be fine if we continue on this trajectory. You have to change the dynamic of this race immediately. The fact that she is TIED with Donald Trump, right now, in those swing-states, is ABYSMAL. If you're a Progressive you should be absolutely FRIGHTENED by that.
I've said it before, I'll say it again - Hillary R. Clinton - if you do not concede to Bernie Sanders, if you do not at least make him your running-mate - YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE and hand Donald ****ing Trump the WHITE HOUSE and DOOM THIS ENTIRE ****ING COUNTRY.
Shame on you, you selfish, arrogant, corrupt, lying, cheating, elitist, sell-out.
Considering how nasty this discussion might get, mods. You might wanna keep an eye on it to move downstairs, just in case.
