This will be my last mention of DK. Call it my reason for boycotting/striking and refusing to click on it in the future. I did want to document for history the type of flaming and bullshit that led to this decision. From here on in, back to the issues. The main issue I have is that the official Democratic Party has gone full fascist.
After thinking about this for a couple days, watching thread after thread of bullshit at the DNC official site (KOS), and watching the videos again, it seems clear to me that the Democratic Party has devolved into a sort of pure fascism. First they exclude a large number of delegates by scheduling the convention on graduation day at 2 NV universities. Then they start changing the rules in unethical and unfair manners that have been described elsewhere at length. The official podium purposely provoke a loud, angry response. Then they bring in armed "troops". The troops were the most shocking thing...
I want to make one point very clear. At least, if not more of the Bernie delegates were women, including in the front lines. Not "Bernie Bros", not Misogynistic" not "drunken, sexist frat boys" not "snarling white males". (See below for copied comments from the DNC).
Not much later the entire corporate press is going after the Nevada delegates as violent, barbaric, crooked, bullies, misogynists clueless lefties, stalkers and what have you. As someone who has lived under "democratic" dictatorships for a goodly portion of my life, I can see no difference between fascism and the official Democratic Party.
Thus, the H. Clinton campaign has their "Willie Horton" moment, right out of the Nixon playbook, QUOTE: “Listen to the answer to those questions. It is the voice of the great majority of Americans, the forgotten Americans—the nonshouters; the nondemonstrators. They are not racist or sick; they are not guilty of the crime that plagues the land. For five years hardly a day has gone by when we haven’t read or heard a report of the American flag being spit on; an embassy being stoned; a library being burned; or an ambassador being insulted some place in the world." And so on.
And its the same old tricks the official Democrats played out at the 1968 convention which led to "Hubert Humphrey wins the Democratic nomination. But is he leading a party, or a civil war?".

The DNC KOS site has gone over to censorship. My posts are consistently flagged and hidden. On the other hand here is what I collected from the top of one thread of many such items:
These people at the DNC and their KOS lapdogs are the ones inciting a complete breakdown of the Democratic Party with their whole fascist, dog whistling, shit slinging, Nixonesque strategy.
Bernie is a narcissist, and so this is all about Bernie. The finger wagging scold who cannot admit mistake or defeat. So Fuck him, and his sycophants. I have to agree.
we are seeing the misogamy coming out in full force now. Because ya know- wimmen need to know their place.
Remove your cranium from your rectum and try again.
the bullying and attitude of Trump, and YES, Bernie “Bros”.. just totally turns me off.
Sanders for encouraging this kind of hatred and divisiveness.
You would think anyone would condemn death threats and misogynistic shout-downs, but apparently not.
berniebros. you know, snarling white males who have no filters when it comes to whatever they dislike, disdain or despise.
repeated incidents of Sanders supporters behaving very badly en masse,
mass bullying and intimidation by Sanders supporters
Sanders’ supporters have repeatedly generated negative headlines for his campaign through their deplorable behavior.
BernieBros from this weekend acting like drunken, sexist fratboys?
personally think Sanders is a pandering crooked piece of garbage
he only people denying the existence of Berniebros are the bros themselves.
Seeing the bullying behavior of far too many Bernie Supporters excused away is an old game recast in a political framework
“Bernie Bullies” works just fine with me.
If it screams like a bully, and attacks like a bully, and doxxes like a bully, and threatens violence against 75-year-old women like a bully, it’s a fucking bully. Suck it up.
the racism that has spewed from the right for the past eight years would be instantly replaced with misogyny.
bad politics of a typical clueless lefty variety.
because he dogwhistles the white male privilege thing and we don’t see that as very progressive.
That sad mistake, I’m afraid, is yours. Y’all bought into a lot of hot air.
Bernie is absolutely dead to her. The stalking and harassing of women online is a major flashpoint with her, because there is literally no recourse.
In my opinion, many if not most Bernie bullies are ratfuckers.
Tea Party-esque mob tactics that the Sanders delegates then engaged in.
I strongly suggest you grow up.
your voices were heard calling a progressive candidate a misogynistic pejorative
Someone who has been fighting for progressive causes for years is Barbara Boxer, who Sanders supporters booed and called a bitch on Saturday.
AFTER CHICAGO, HUMPHREY CAME OUT OF THE GATE WITH A DOUBLE-DIGIT DEFICIT!!!! So will H. Clinton.
