    Bloomberg campaign...

    I am starting to think Bloomberg has no clue how to compete in a democrat primary if he is sending things like this out now after getting destroyed in the last debate.

    'Look how much people hate me' seems like a bold election strategy. Lets see how it pays off.

    It won't. He's a joke. Only other candidate besides Bernie with a prayer is Biden, because he could easily pull out wins in GA, SC and FL. Which is something he's never done before, btw. This Dem field outside Bernie is a joke.

    He is (apparently) complaining about an actual act of vandalism though, not just the use of the word.

    Sanders has some Trump level stupid supporters, so there is likely some validity to Bloomberg's complaint...I.e. that there is a direct link between words and actions.

    They seem to be complaining more about the language though, probably because its an accurate description of what Bloomberg is. They want to pretend like its some kind of slur lol. He's doing identity politics for oligarchs lol.

    With you non-Bernie Bros leftists talking about them like that I have no doubt Milwaukee is going to be burning some if Bernie isn't the nominee.

    Bernie’s rhetoric is so amped up that it’s inspiring dumb actors. He has gone the lazy route of demonizing. Worked for Trump so he thinks it will work for him.

    It's going to be great watching Democrats tear into Bernie for the next few weeks. But seriously, anyone with a level head knows all the campaigns have their nutjob admirers and it stands to reason Bernie is going to have more considering he's outpolling the others 2-to-1, 3-to-1 or more.
