I don't think they'd be killed. It wouldn't be necessary. The important thing would be stopping them from getting on the ballot. Every State has
different deadlines for that, & if they couldn't get on the ballot, they'd have to do "write in" campaigns. Good luck with that.
Also, most of the powerful "left wing" infrastructure is really a "Democratic" infrastructure. Dailykos, DemocraticUnderground, Code Blue, and other
sites like that usually ban campaigning and promotion of non-Democratic candidates. That kind of censorship would hurt an independent Bernie campaign
Think of it like this: most of Bernie's current supporters didn't even know who he was until he decided to run as a Democratic candidate for
President. Before that, everyone was still on the Elizabeth Warren bandwagon. That needs repeating. Bernie, an old guy who's been in the system longer
than many of his supporters have been alive, was a virtual unknown until he ran as a Democratic candidate last year. Until then, the Democratic power
structure typically ignored him or wrote him off as a left wing extremist. And the same goes for many of the people who support him now.
