FORMER DEM OFFICIAL: ‘GO F— YOURSELF, BERNIE:’

A former deputy executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) on Friday lashed out at presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders in a post on Medium titled “Go f— yourself, Bernie.”

The post was in response to Sanders implying that rival Hillary Clinton was praising President Obama in order to “win support from the African American community where the President is enormously popular.”

“It’s not just Black people that love Obama. The President is ‘enormously popular’ among all Democrats. Welcome to the Party,” former DCCC official Brandon English wrote in his post.

“Do you have any idea how belittling it is to reduce Obama to the President that the Blacks like?”

Oh, about as belittling as referring to a former first lady and the first female vice presidential nominee respectively as a “big f***ing whore,” and “David Duke in Drag,” and defining the April 2008 Democratic primary as “an election about whether the people of Pennsylvania hate blacks more than they hate women. And when I say people, I don’t mean people, I mean white men” – “bitter” white men who “cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” That’s how Hillary Clinton and her supporters were attacked in 2008 when it was politically expedient, as a then-spokesman for General Electric said at the time, “Take her into a room and only he comes out.”

In other words, this is who they are and how they treat their allies — let alone the rest of us.
