Coordinated Harassment against Sarandon . . .

. . . is putting her safety at risk. The tsunami of irrational hatred has really gone too far at this point.

For those of you who may not recall, Adam Parkhomenko is a Democratic political strategist and organizer who served as National Field Director for the Democratic National Committee in 2016. He was also the co-founder and executive director of the super PAC Ready for Hillary. The Washington Post wrote an article about him dedicating his life to Hillary.

Just when I thought it couldn't get much worse and that it was par for the course, it just keeps getting worse and worser. These twittering twits who keep attacking Sarandon just keep trying to outdo each other. Check out some more examples of the vicious twitter lunacy being directed at Sarandon documented by Bern2020: https://twitter.com/OurAbsoluteBern

Adam is getting lots of flack for saying that. Aaron Mate called him out so Adam called him a Putin butt kisser. How grown up huh?

Why are Hillary's supporters going after Sarandon right now and out of the blue? This started before she said what she did about Warren. Messing just seems to have a problem with her and has since Her lost to Trump. I'd be embarrassed if I lost the easiest election in history to him. lol!

This Sarandon hatred stuff is making me a lot angrier and frustrated than I thought I would allow myself to get during this campaign. The freaking hypocrisy and outright viciousness of these IdPol stalwarts is already worse than it was back in 2016, istm. So time out for awhile for me. Youse have some fun.

This is why they are pushing this crap on us. Crap like this is coming from all directions just so people remain distracted from what is happening elsewhere. Whenever you see games like this being played ask yourself who gains from it and what else is going on?

Hillary lost the election 3 years ago, but Sarandon and Russia are still being blamed for it. Why? And why now? As Sirota stated Neena is sitting in her think tank coming up with this crap. Why? Is she connected to Kambama's campaign in some way? Remember that most of Hillary's campaign staff is working with Kambama's this time around. Just laugh at how silly they sound blaming one person for Hillary losing instead of reminding Hillary that she never campaigned in the states she lost. Silly woman. She didn't think she should have had to work for her coronation.

@lizzyh7

Either way it's pushing many important issues off of the discussions and of course Epstein's death is one of them.

Why is Neena bringing up the last election so much? Is she part of Kambama's campaign and is trying to distract people from talking about her huge Hamptons fundraiser and her flip flopping on MFA? Or that she is skipping the climate change townhall to go to another fundraiser with rich donors? Something is up..

What an awful woman she is. She should remember that she will need Bernie's supporters to vote for whomever they decide will be the candidate. Unless she too just wants Trump to win again.

This guy got banned from there for posting this on Armando.

Anyway, here’s the quote:

Hi — off topic, but I blog here often and just wanted to let everyone know that I was just banned from dkos… for having the nerve to point that Armando (full name Armando Llorens-Sar) is a PARTNER in a anti-evironmental, anti-labor law firm (McConnell Valdes) that represents Walmart and many other perennials on the “worst corporations list.” During the day Armando’s law firm fights AGAINST the same progressive causes he promotes on dKos. The firm even has a lobbying department to promote corporate special interests! This is all public knowledge that he himself has presented publically, but apparently mentioning it on dkos is an offense worthy of banning. Also, this all came about in RESPONSE to a diary that he wrote attacking ME!

Gee..makes me wonder why Armando even joined DK.

Someone who got the history right on how kos shot his blog in the face too. As y'all know I read the site daily and I am amazed at what people get away with saying there now. Calling people trolls if they don't believe the Russia Russia Russia crap or say that Obama's tenure didn't help most Americans, or calling Lindsay Graham Ms. Lindsay. Or McConnell Putin's bitch or other homophobic comments about people there. Even violence gets uprated...

Any who here way of the bern thread on Armando and DK if anyone is interested.

As for your point, I think you need to get a cooler dictionary because “to fuck” has more than one meaning. Surprised you didn’t know that.

wrote about Armando's tweet in her article today.

"Establishment Dems are Openly Bullying Progressives. Good."

Establishment Democrats have been flipping out about Susan Sarandon on Twitter. Again. In 2019.

I won’t re-hash the vapid origins of the drama here; if you want you can read about it here. Suffice to say that as usual it originated with Neera Tanden, the Center for American Progress think tank president who says populism undermines democracy. Sarandon’s name trended briefly on Twitter as shots were fired between progressives and establishment loyalists, things got wild over the next couple of days, and now you’ve got Daily Kos editor Armando Lloréns-Sar hastily deleting tweets after a deranged meltdown which culminated in the claim that Bernie Sanders is paying the progressive Our Revolution president Nina Turner to fuck him.

[...]

This new escalation in hyper-aggressive browbeating has been about as subtle as a brick, and leaders of America’s progressive movement have noticed.

“Folks on this website [Daily Kos] are so used to being able to personally vilify and bully anyone they disagree with, they’re now outraged that people like Briahna Joy Gray, Nina Turner, myself and others aren’t taking it silently anymore,” tweeted Sanders campaign speech writer David Sirota. “We are civil — but we respond. If that has you shook, too bad.”

Indeed, establishment liberals have been reacting with shock and indignation that anyone would dare to defend themselves from their appalling smears. 

[...]

The beltway pundits were able to choke down their rage and vitriol for a few months of the presidential race, hoping against hope that the Sanders campaign would be eclipsed by fauxgressives like Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg and kill his numbers in the polls. As soon as it became clear that this wasn’t going to happen, the friendly mask fell off and the claws came out.

That’s good. Now it’s a clean, fair, honest fight: toe-to-toe, gloves off, and no holds barred. Without the false container of civility and politeness, narratives are much harder to control, and populist narratives have an easier time emerging. Neera made a major miscalculation.

Kambama was who the PTB picked for us, but people are rejecting her because they don't want a cop to become president and especially one with her history. So when people reject their choice they will once again look for a skape goat to explain why she lost. But it's so early and the field is still open so why are they acting so desperate?

Fuck the Ukraine lobby operating behind the scenes and their shitty faux woke mysoginistic tactics.

A lot of the Dems are heavily invested in Ukraine 'independence'.

It's boggled my mind that they've been allowed to pull a Homer fading into the bushes bit all this time. Their activities for the DNC and their Ukrainian government and business connections are well documented. Probably a pretty safe assumption to make that they are pretty darn close to Adam Parkomenko, too.

this certainly inspires me to "vote blue no matter who".

[/sarcasm]

Seriously, what we're looking at is toxic narcissistic personality-disordered behavior run wild.

Self-righteous temper tantrums, raging, gaslighting, crazy-making, circular argumentation, projection, bullying, shaming, and blaming. And a complete lack of self-awareness.

Two-year-old behavior, in other words.

That I like Ms. Sarandon, and everybody in the MSM has to go out of my way to tell me I'm wrong. They did it with Johnny Cash and Bob Crane too, so might as well just get used to every one of the people whose work I enjoy being trashed.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we have an official inquisition. Complete with venial and mortal sins. Failure to properly show faith and confess that there is only ONE candidate, Hillary Be her name, then you're pretty much fucked.

So, I think the lesson is... Don't bother with Hollywood if you don't want to kowtow to their sponsors.

For some reason, I can't embed Susan's tweet response to Adam P. here. I never had a problem doing it before. Maybe it's a temporary glitch. Maybe she broke twitter. Or maybe Jack is just being a jackass.

You can directly check out her response at: https://twitter.com/SusanSarandon/status/1164010014744424448

. . . and check out her retweets re. Adam P. and Neera, too.

@snoopydawg

I've noticed that lots of your tweet embeds display in a skinny column. This one looked full.

Also thanks for sharing the 6th International assessment of the situation (I've been reading Beth Lynch's tweetery since 2016). I'll add him to my favorites bar. Seems they've realized that Kamala is kaput and are wrestling with abandoning that ship and jumping on Biden's but yegads, he's making a bumbling fool of himself and while they might tactically push WARren to screw over Bernie, I don't think they'll ever really ever support her. I also think part of the freakout is that they are really, really afraid Bernie might pull off a miracle: https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/458161-polls-suggest-sanders-may-b...

I post here. They seem to have the same amount of words in them, but some just post that way while others don't. Seems weird doesn't it?

I think Kambama was supposed to get the nod this time since she started doing fundraisers in the Hamptons long before she declared she was running. But her history is too much for some people to overlook. I'm just flabbergasted by the number of people who have been involved with the black lives matter movement who can overlook how bad she was for blacks during her tenure in California. But point it out to them and boy do you get dawg piled on.
