And yet you've made yourself an example.

And please don't tell me you say the term "bro" with any type of endearment.

An example of what?!

Never said it was out of endearment, just not about Bernie or his campaign.

You're subscribing to the idea that here are two types of voters on the left, and that "berniebros" is both an example and a namesake for what one of those types of voters are.

Meanwhile, the other type has no crafty name, oversimplification, or stereotype. They're the normal ones.

You're overthinking this.

There was nothing rhymey or alliterative that fit Hillary.

Hillary Shrillerys? It's not catchy.

The nickname was not the problem.

Well this is the opposite of brokering peace.

False.

I said they were a certain populace of HIS voters. That doesn’t even define his voters in two groups. So I’m not sure how you’re making such leaps.

I think the term was mostly used to describe the BMPs of his base; can’t answer the most basic of any economic question, describe themselves as progressive while soaked in racism and sexism, and have entitlement issues.

!!! You're still doing it. This is exactly the point. You're suggesting that that's a sect of Bernie Sanders supporters. Racism, sexism, ignorance. Brand it. We found them on the internet on Reddit. Let's make sure that the nation hears about it.

Branding of followers in a negative light is a fallacious tactic of targeting that candidate if that candidate obviously doesn't support that. Now, let's back up this conversation. BEAL identified "establishment" versus "Berniebro." Can we make that clear?

We can point out bad apples in any bunch. I, for one, can think of a handful of sexists, rapists, sexual abusers, and child molesters that were prominent folks who supported Clinton - OBVIOUSLY without any doubt that's not the identify of her politics or er supporters. You better bet your ass the right brands it as so, though. Go visit Fox News, you'll see exactly how they do it.

This is hilarious. I console myself with ice cream too, sad to have that in common with Trump.

Why are we denying that this sect of supporters exists? Do you deny that certain sects don’t exist in Trump supporters too?

On your second paragraph here I can start to see your point, and maybe you’re right? I agree he doesn’t support these things, so why does he attract these obvious sects of followers? Maybe it does point out a flaw in the candidate, but I would never say it was fallacious or slandering. He attracted this group, and they spoke, thought, and supported him in a very loud and cohesive voice.

I still don’t personally use that term as a slander to Bernie. I agree with a lot he stands for, but found him to be flawed(especially economically), when used by me it was always towards the uninformed left male.

I did not see this, and I disagree with this assessment.

I love Bernie Sanders. He is quintessential get off my lawn older Vermont guy. I think he has true integrity. I just never thought his ideas were financially feasable.

But I had a blast watching the guy in debates. I loved when he told Hillary that he didn't care about the damn emails. I still yell get off my lawn every time I see him on tv.

Don Jr. refused to discuss aspects of conversation between himself and his father because of... attorney client privilege?
