Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison recently asked on Twitter for examples of Bernie Bros attacking people online and off. It has over 14k responses. These aren't bots. One guy had just published a book online and a Bernie supporter called for everyone to give it 1 star and leave bad reviews. Multiple women report threats and stalking. Just in case you were curious. I love Bernie and will vote for him, but he needs to address this.

In response to a confession. Not the one to whom you're responding, but Neolib is a term used by the Maga crowd. If you use it, I will always assume you're in the same camp as them.

In response to a confession. I'm only 24. Not at all a Boomer. Just tired of people who can't get their point across without name calling. Hope you feel better for insulting a faceless stranger on the internet who disagrees with you, though. If that ain't Boomer behavior, I don't know what is.

In response to a confession. Nope. Neolib is a term thrown around by right wingers. I didn't care for your usage of it either. Words matter, internet speak or not.

I don't understand the denial of the awful Bernie supporters. Y'all want screenshots of my DMs? It's worse than it was in 2015/16. The majority of them are sexist white men (huge shock) who mainly are abusive to women on online platforms (huge shock). I can't tell you how many bros I've blocked because they've started "debates" with me online about Warren. By debate, I mean unprovoked attack about why I support her that always devolves into them making disgusting sexist comments until I block them. These are real, human men. They exist. They are a problem, especially for women. It's easy to spot a Bernie bot just as easily as you can spot a maga bot.

In response to a confession. I agree with this, but I think Bernie needs to be more direct about it. He needs to flat out say, I don't want people like that supporting me. He hasn't done that.

In response to a confession. I mean, I think if you're looking for substance and intelligence, maybe don't except it from a rant site with a character limit that is basically people blowing off steam. It's not really that possible to have an intelligent discussion somewhere like this, most people are just shit posting about what's making them angry or sad today and not thinking it through that much, even in the current events section. Plenty of other places to find that type of dialogue.

In response to a confession. Bernie did address this last time he ran. It didn't stop anyone from doing anything, and unfortunately anybody who expresses their political views on an open forum is probably going to get a sound beating. I mean for god's sake, you can't even say you went to try the new vegan burger at Burger King without getting ripped a new one by 5,000 people. Is it right? No. Is it an unfortunate part of online "discourse?" Yep. If you really think Bernie addressing this is going to do anything, you're woefully naïve. The mainstream media is running with this Bernie bros narrative because they have little else to discredit him on except calling him a commie, and that's going to get old fast. Literally every candidate is going to have trollish supporters, and Bernie seems pretty popular, hence more trollish supporters. There's jack shit he can do about it, and he has much bigger issues to focus on.

In response to a confession. "Sorry my passive aggressive post deliberately intended to piss you off pissed you off, and now I'm going to add condescension to my passive aggression."

In response to a confession. Language changes. Someone's use of shortened words or even insults does not denote intelligence. Honestly, if that's the way you think I doubt you're as smart as you think you are.
