• The appropriate term is "Bernie or Busters".

    • We are in agreement. I have talked to Bernie supporters who have converted to Hillary. BernieBros are still in the burn it all down and start over mode.

    • I'm not a politician and no matter what I say it will have little effect on the election. So I'm quite comfortable in saying "fuck em" to the hard core Sanders supporters. Fortunately for the party Hillary isn't quite so dismissive.

    • I think I just said the same thing. How is it you seem to misunderstand. I agree that we should not alienate this group with insults. Lashing out in anger isn't an answer. I'm just saying that using "Bernie supporters" when referring to the views of a minority of his supporters is inaccurate....

    • At some point, we have to ask what is the responsibility that hard core Sanders supporters have to the rest of us. If they are willing to let a bigot and racist get elected, what does that say about them?

    • I won't pretend. We all know what Bernie Bro is. Bernie Bro is an insulting dismissive term used to lash out at some Sanders supporters. It's not helpful. I've tried to avoid using it but at times, justifiably or not, I've lashed out in anger. We're all emotional human beings and very few of us...

    • Hardcore Bernie Sanders supporters like those who booed when Sanders mentioned electing Hillary today.

    • It's not a binary distinction. There are Bernie supporters who will never vote for Hillary, there are Bernie supporters who will certainly vote for Hillary, and there are Bernie might vote for Hillary. That last group is the key. If you tar everyone is upset with the DNC or critical of...

    • How exactly do you define "BernieBro"?

    • Let's be clear here and reflect reality. The majority of Sanders supporters quite easily moved to Hillary when Sanders lost. For some it was a hard decision but still they moved to Hillary. A small group of hard core Sanders supporters will not let go. If you feel that description is unduly...

    • Democrats get about 40% of white voters. Democrats need to work to make sure there are active GOTV efforts in Black, Latino, and Asian communities. The BernieBros are not a dependable group of voters.

    • I don't believe you know who will vote for Hillary. But if you're willing to write off everyone who is upset with the DNC, then I don't know how you can expect Hillary to win in November.

    • As I said above, Bernie supporters are -- quite rightly -- in no mood to be lectured on how they should just suck it up. I have never been eligible to vote in a U.S. election, but I have followed your politics in depth since before the Kennedy-Nixon debate. And I've consistently backed (even if...

    • We can be angry at these hardcore supporters just like we can be angry at Trump supporters. Neither group is going to vote for Hillary.

    • I may have been the staunchest Bernie supporter at this site, although I'm obviously not the biggest Hillary hater disliker.  That said, I think your point is mostly valid CVille despite your preference for Clinton throughout the primaries.  The emails released don't strike me as...

    • PS Insofar as many of us here are sympathetic to the protests, let's cool off the whiny baby stuff please.

    • Hey, hey, hey, don't worry, be happy, remember? Calling the protesters "whiny babies" and telling them to go fuck themselves is not likely to help Clinton win the favor of Bernie supporters, is it? If you don't think their votes matter, then why so angry? And if you do think their votes matter,...

    • No. Here is the Bernie Bros indisputable proof Hillary stole the ballot box:

    • The protesters make the point that they cannot be appeased. The image that will come out is a group of rabid so-called Leftists trying and failing to take over the Democratic Party. Hillary and Kaine will be the adults. 

    • Sanders supporters are chanting 'lock her up' and they don't mean Deb. And yes, the Bernie Bro in a rant on Hillary used the personal pronoun 4 times in one sentence:
