For some reason these supposedly progressive pundits act as if their ‘mining for negatives’ (apt that phrase) is just them being fair and objective searchers for truth but they conveniently ignore that they are giving support for Hillary and discouraging many on the left from voting. I think they are trying to ‘get published’ and are being reckless towards the harm they cause.
The Hillary camp supporters sound very much like do some of these supposed objective progressives which makes you wonder about just how objective these folks are.
It starts to look sickening that so many supposed progressives may be something else entirely. An unsavory thought but perhaps more of a reality than we’d like to think.
The very fact that they ignore Hillary when criticizing Bernie positions means something! Either some are in her camp, some are paid shills and hacks and some are seemingly paid by somebody to suppress the progressive vote however and whenever.
These ‘mining for negatives’ pundits should remember that they are helping Hillary or Jeb get elected and all those issues (as those stated in the article and more) are their issues too if they are real progressives.
Too many faux progressives seem intent on helping Hillary behind the scenes. It is only because Bernie is so different that it is so noticeable. When Gore ran the oligarchy corrupted the Supreme Court and manipulated the vote (like in Ohio etc.).
I think that they would be doing the same manipulating tricks now with Bernie. It is sad to see that certain supposed progressives have fallen by the wayside.
