commented on Hey Bernie Bros, "Revolution" Is Not the Best Way to Structure a Political Movement
Your use of "Bernie Bros" shows you are still ignoring that the Bernie voter base was actually quite diverse in almost all respects - its primary demographic was people under 40. By continuing this smear you are suppressing the voices of those that are not white males. Sure, that is the loudest most obnoxious group, but that's not something unique that magically happened amongst Bernie supporters (who have the stranger's loudest, most insufferable Hillary supporters been? Hint: look at who endorsed Hillary in the primary).
That out of the way, can't say I'm shocked that the movement would struggle after the race ended. Hopefully it will be able to get its shit together and provide some much needed progressive pressure on our political system... or maybe you would rather just gloat and say "she wins!", then pat yourselves on the back, and keep on bombing brown people, get that TPP signed, melt those ice caps, frack everything, and rake in that Wall Street $$$!!!

Um, where exactly did Stein say Trump and Clinton are "indistinguishable"? I her saying that both would be horrible (true), but nothing about them being indistinguishable (not true). Is it time now to start smearing the third party candidates now?

@13 she can't get anything done if she doesn't get elected. I want her to get elected - not my first choice, but she's better than Trump. But she is not going to win if she can't find a way to appeal to Sanders supporters, young voters, and independents. Dismissing them because she wins the primary is not going to help her in the general election. "Better than Trump" is not a particularly inspirational campaign slogan though, hope she finds a way to convince more people to vote FOR her, not against Trump... don't want another Bush v Gore/Kerry.
@15 if you read to the end of the article, it's conclusion is that yes, she supports fracking. I'm going to keep that in the "untrustworthy" column as opposed to "nuanced and evolved". I don't trust "responsible fracking" any more than I do "clean coal".
