Democrats keep handling the election of Donald Trump in the worst ways possible. When they’re not busy blaming the Russians, white people, the FBI director, or anything else they can think of, they turn their fire inward. For refusing to bow down before the false throne of Hillary Clinton, people like Bernie Sanders are now considered traitors among certain segments of the Democratic coalition.
The latest broadside against Bernie has to be seen to be believed. Despite the fact that he’s a Jew with family members who were exterminated in the Holocaust, Bernie has been labeled a white supremacist by a former director of Ready for Hillary (aka Ready PAC), a pro-Clinton Super PAC.

“I am very proud to be Jewish, and being Jewish is so much of what I am,” he said at the event in Flint, Michigan. “Look, my father’s family was wiped out by Hitler in the Holocaust. I know about what crazy and radical, and extremist politics mean.”
I understand that this was a nasty fucking loss for Democrats. The ones you never see coming are always the hardest, and for that they can blame their own media. Maybe if they had started treating Trump like a legit threat to win, more liberals and “progressives” would have went out to vote. But it is what it is. You lost. Hillary Clinton was a horrible candidate. Blaming the people who pointed that out early and often is a surefire way to continue to slide downhill. Unforutnately for Dems, it seems like there’s a lot more bloodletting to do over on their side.
It’s still early days, so perhaps they will get it together. But 2018 isn’t all that far away. I would suggest they get their shit together rather quickly. Or, better yet, don’t. I need more shit to write about.
