Did BernieBros Vandalize Mike Bloomberg’s Campaign Office?
Newly resurrected (Liz Warren killed him on 2/19/2020) Michael Bloomberg is pissed the fuck off at BernieBros, who his campaign manager says vandalized his campaign office, like a bunch of vandals. On Social Media for the past month or so, Berners have been using specific language when trolling people about Bloomberg. I know this, because fans of the Vermontese Senator constantly find their way to my timeline to attack every single candidate who is not Bernie. Words like “Oligarch” are their favorite to use when attacking Bloomberg, and it’s no mere coincidence, IMO, that on the outside of the office, that very word was spray painted prominently, in one of the ugliest orange colors on the face of the earth.
Once Kamala dropped out, I pledged to attempt to be neutral in order to support the supporters of other candidates that were being attacked by Bernie fans. In doing so, I became the person Berniebros cannot stand, just like in 2015 when I flipped to Hillary, who I did not even like-until I got a snoot-full of Berniebro bullshit. So, let’s just say I am an expert on Berniebro behavior, and I believe they are guilty as fuck.
“This latest incident at our Knoxville campaign office is exactly what we’ve been warning about,” Campaign Manager Kevin Sheekey said in a statement. “We don’t know who is responsible for this vandalism, but we do know it echoes language from the Sanders campaign and its supporters.”
BernieBros have been quick to play victim each and every time an accusation is made against members of their group for doing deplorable bullshit. But, at this point, the excuses are getting to be a bit tedious; many of us have been dealing with harassment and abuse from some of the shadiest Berners on the web for YEARS. Each time we complain, our grievances have been met with cries of “Erasure!” for using the term BernieBros, even when we aren’t using the term BernieBros. Sanders, for his part, simply points out that he has women of color on his team who receive terrible messages too. See? Bernie doesn’t care if you are threatened and harassed by his people, he will simply cover for them by claiming to be the real victim, no matter what.
Campaign spokeswoman Galia Slayen told TPM that the vandals wrote “Resist,” “Fuck Bloomberg” and “Oligarch” on the building.
Lately, Berners have decided to go FULL RESISTANCE, even though until recently they denied that Russia had done anything at all, and many of them still deny it. As far as the rest of what they wrote on the building, well that’s exactly what they write on my timeline on a daily basis, along with accusations that I just want poor black babies to die, since I refuse to support Sanders. Now, I cannot think of a time when Bernie was running around saving black babies, but that’s just because I am a neoliberal warmonger loving bootlicker.
In his statement, Sheekey included examples of Sanders and his team using similar verbiage. The Bloomberg campaign did not respond to a question about if they had any further evidence, but is calling on Sanders to disavow the destruction which officials say has happened at other campaign offices too.
Will Bernie manage to disavow this destructive behavior without pointing fingers at everyone else?
The Sanders campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
Of course not. Brie Brie has to come up with a way to make Bernie the real victim, and that takes time.
Bloomberg has been calling for Sanders to release his full health records, and a Sanders surrogate falsely stated that Bloomberg had suffered from heart attacks.
That was Brie Brie who went on TV and lied about Bloomberg having a heart attack too, when in fact, he did not.
However, Sanders has taken heat from multiple candidates about the infamously vicious behavior of some of his supporters, especially online. He tried to wash his hands of the accusations during the Nevada debate on Wednesday, suggesting that perhaps foreign bots were masquerading as badly behaving Sanders fans to create disruption. Experts have concluded that there is no proof that that.
“IT WAS RUSSIAN BOTS!!!” Shut the fuck up, Bernie. Bullshit. Experts have already weighed in on his dramatic and false declaration that the Sanders supporters online who abuse, target, and threaten Democrats are all just Russian bots masquerading as BernieBros. Bernie doesn’t agree, and says this is because nobody who REALLY supported him would ever behave in such a foul way. Also, he seems to think that somehow, supporting M4A and Free College means that you cannot be a bad person, which is delusional and scary in it’s naivety.
Experts have concluded that Russian trolls are NOT LIKELY behind the harassment campaign against the Nevada Culinary Union.
The Daily Beast reached out to experts in tracking disinformation to see if there was any evidence of Russian involvement in the feud between Sanders supporters and the Nevada Culinary Workers Union. None could point to a specific example of Russia-linked personas imitating pro-Bernie personas and attacking members of the Nevada Culinary Workers Union.
Experts have officially called bullshit on Bernie’s claim that his fans are being set up to look like raging cyber maniacs by a Russian backed disinfo campaign, so it’s time for Bernie to stop using that as a shield and start being a leader who can lead his Revolution into being decent human beings. Bernie cannot admit that his anger and manner of attacks on Democrats have caused his movement to hate Democrats so passionately that they literally hate us more than they hate the GOP. It wouldn’t surprise me if the hate he and they have for the wealthy spilled out of social media and culminated in these attacks on Bloomberg campaign offices.
Also, just five minutes ago as I was tagging this piece, I got a news alert that didn’t shock me one bit. US officials just told Bernie Sanders that RUSSIA is trying to HELP his campaign, not harm it. Just like they did in 2016. I really wish Bernie Sanders would fuck off somewhere, he’s only helping Trump by running for President.
