Of course the party should listen to the voters. But, how would that work, exactly? 50,000 people, as he put it, talking to the Senate Democratic Caucus? I'm sorry, but this doesn't make any sense.
This, unfortunately, has become a cult of personality for Bernie personally, and also about creating animosity, division, and further distrust within our country for its public servants as well as its public officials to further his own political ambitions. It's not only not a positive message for the future of our country, it's counterproductive to achieving any of his stated campaign principles and objectives.
Does Bernie Sanders have some relevant policy principles to his campaign? Yes.
The divisive rhetoric in this race is coming out of one side of the Democratic contest. Calling it out is not being divisive, as I'm sure some will try and label me for daring to challenge the Bernie Sanders innuendo-laced narratives that leave him the lone candidate able to lead the progressive cause. Calling it out is an attempt to shed some necessary sunlight into this race because cheap talking points are not going to win in November. That's something we can always expect from the other side.
