Thank you so much for your thoughtful response. To say that I’m disappointed to see firsthand how shitty some of these Bernie or Bust folks are is an understatement. I liked to believe, throughout the campaign, that this whole thing was a myth created by the media. But I’m living it right now, on Medium and on Twitter, and it’s for real. Some of these people are NO BETTER than Trump supporters. Just as righteous, just as extreme, with the only difference being that they reflect so poorly on who their candidate is and what he stands for. It’s insulting to everyone who has supported Bernie for years, well before he declared his candidacy.
