Well, that is just not true.

If the #BernieOrBust crowd had cost the Democrats the election, or even helped contribute to the stunning and disastrous defeat they suffered in 2016, then DNC members, Shareblue, CTR, CAP and folks like Neera Tanden, Sally Albright, Peter Daou and all the other Hive Queen Cultists would not be attacking Bernie supporters so viciously and incessantly and telling us to fuck off and go away .

And they would certainly not be so idiotic as to tell us over and over again (as they do), “we do not need you, go away and form a third party, Bernie should run as an independent, Bernie is not a real Democrat” and so on.

That would be utterly imbecilic, moronic, self-defeating and politically suicidal. Right?

I mean, they cannot possibly think that heaping mountains of vitriol, abuse, insults and epithets on us is the way to garner our votes. Right?
