It started out with a simple Facebook status
Democrats, yelling at people who supported Sanders is pushing them away from Biden.
and things went a bit crazy after that.
The comments went from calm to impassioned to downright yelly.
What I wanted to communicate was a simple fact that, hey, Biden people you all won. Be gracious in victory. And while many
Biden supporters are, I noticed there was some bullying going on.
Yes, I said it. Bullying.
There’s a more than a whiff of, “You better come on board the Biden boat or else!”
And that’s just a weird way to convince people your candidate is the right one.
It’s a logic similar to, “Believe in God or you’re going to Hell.”
That sort of messaging creates more problems than it helps.
And as a Bernie supporter, I know the pain of defeat. I feel it. It’s tough.
As we get closer to the election, I want to offer a thought.
Politics deadens reason.
It inflames passion.
Please, act accordingly.
Thanks for reading.
