As aware as anyone in the States, I suppose. I just happen to think whomever did this is probably not involved on any significant level with any of the major political actors of the moment. I believe this person was politically and socially motivated, but is a fringe actor. Probably a terribly unbalanced person enjoying rent-free abode on their parent's basement or suchlike. And I do suspect they've got a beef with Bernie supporters. I've met a lot of Hillary supporters and found none of them holding significant animosity toward Bernie supporters.

If you want to see it as "talking down" then, by all means, see it whatever way you see fit. It was, however, not intended that way. Perhaps the "oozing" part was a bit of a bad choice of words and made it sound a bit harsher than I intended. What I meant was that your bias shows here, and that was all. You are dismissing the possibility of it being someone [nutty] from the far left all the while trumping up the "nutter from the far right" angle. I'd say that kinda speaks for itself.

Also, in regards to Israel and those rockets...



I hardly think it's biased to suggest a rocket striking an Israeli settlement has less than 50% chance of being fired by the Israeli government.

I hardly think it's biased to suggest that said rocket has well over a 50% chance of originating from the Israelis themselves...but I might be biased, in that regard.
Actually, no. I don't have a dog in that fight either....but I will say, there are those within Israel that fund Hamas, keeps them their jobs...etc etc etc...blah blah blah. (sorry, I've given up on that whole issue) and there are those who claim Hamas was either established by or is being run from the shadows by the likes of Mossad. So there are a few different angles on that one as well.




I do appreciate that the rush of pleasure-bringing hormones that come from relating to others self-righteously can be awfully seductive.


On another, far more serious note, could you tell me more about these "pleasure bringing hormones" and how I might be able to release them. Years of "fun times" have left me destitute of such pleasures in my now sober years (alcohol notwithstanding)...so if there are any tips and tricks to this, please, let me know. If it is as simple as accosting some random peeps on the net, I might just have to give that a shot.

Bernie supporters have the most motive to create such a meme.

It could be a callous Trump or Hillary supporter that doesn't care if someone gets hurt. Or it could be a callous Bernie supporter that doesn't care if someone gets hurt AND wants to see Hillary and/or Trump supporters get blamed for being callous.

My money is on it originating with a Bernie supporter, based on motive.


Have you got examples of Bernie supporters advocating for such things? My anecdotal experience doesn't align well with this proposal, but I'm open to the notion that my experience with Bernie supporters isn't sufficiently representative.

Well, to be fair, I'm mostly certain this person has animosity towards Bernie supporters, and I think it's a safe bet to say the lion's share of that animosity comes from the right. But I certainly don't think it is "The Right" in some royal sense. I would be surprised if any of the right-leaning posters on ATS were to do such thing no matter how angry and vitriolic they might sound, for instance. Whoever did this was crazy first and politically motivated second.

This place has become SO predictable



Almost as predictable as hillary lying , BSing, or trying to take credit for imaginary things.

I just think it's the balance of probability, but I don't dismiss the possibility that it's a left-leaning nutter. If a murder happens in a town with a 99% caucasian demographic and I say I think there are very good odds the perpetrator is also caucasian, I'm not being racist or biased. I'm acknowledging that it's more likely the murderer knew the victim and resided in the community. That's how I look at this: of course it's possible a left-leaning nutter composed this. I just don't think that's the first place to look. The "oozing" superlative is in fact what caused me to read you that way, but I take you at your word that you didn't mean it in a dismissive sense. And let me be totally clear: we all have bias, and I do lean left. Of course some of my reasoning is subject to bias. I don't think that means it's all garbage, though.

The below quote-tags got a little mangled and I'm going to try to sort this out, but please forgive me if I screw it up.

We could go deep on that one, and that probably would qualify as swimming against the topic. I understand why you feel the way that you do, though, and I agree that Mossad are crafty and underhanded (like all espionage agencies).

Oh, you've got to see this. I'm not saying this is a good way to get your thrills, but it's fascinating stuff:

amzn.to...
("Pathological Altruism")

People talk a lot about SJW's, and it gets slung about very loosely to describe anyone with left-of-center political views who slings words. But when you see those videos of angry, screaming kids on college campuses, I do believe this is what is happening in their neurochemistry. They are literally high on the experience of feeling holier-than-thou, that they have the right of things, are defending those who need defending, and so on.

I would argue not just as easily. The "political second" part matters, in my opinion. I doubt you could fill up one hand's counting of Bernie supporters who would want other (naive) Bernie supporters to get hurt, for instance, no matter how they thought it might boost their cause. And while I think a Clinton supporter is a more likely suspect than a Bernie supporter, I think that someone who fancies themselves right-of-center is a more likely suspect than the former two.

...And I know, right? Compulsive reply engine, engaged.

Clinton is more plausible. Your comparison is irrelevant.


Clinton is more plausible to you maybe (if you're not just trolling yourself) because you hate Clinton. Having absolutely nothing to do with the actual likelihood of Clinton being involved which is about as great as the likelihood of Trump being involved — which is to say a number so close to zero that I'd only consider expressing it in scientific notation.

Most likely this is the work of some random psychopathic jackass who was looking to cause a stir and possibly dislikes Bernie supporters. Or maybe it was all a ploy by a Bernie supporter to do something that would reflect negatively on Trump or Hillary supporters.

Aside possibly from "Aliens!" the idea that one of the candidates is behind it is probably the absolute least likely explanation.

Exactly. It's astronomically unlikely to be the work of any organized "main-stream" actor, including Trump, Clinton, Sanders, and their affiliates. Whoever did it was a psychopathic jackass who could've been:

a) Selecting a target audience at random
b) Selecting a target audience they believe their stunt will work best on
c) Selecting a target audience they have animosity for
d) Selecting a target audience they sympathize with but are willing to put at risk for an abstract greater good

If I were to rank the likelihood, I would say in order from most to least likely, we're looking at:

c
b
a
d

I'd also suggest the grammatical error (His last name is Sanders, so you'd write "Sanders'" or "Sanders's", not "Sander's") works against the notion that it's a more sophisticated actor.

No she is more plausible because who is against Sanders right now? Clinton. Clearly. I have no favorites.

Thanks for the troll

Well, that's messed up.

One question though. How exactly is the maker of this meme a "presumed" Bernie "opponent"? Could just as easily be a supporter, working the reverse psychology angle, no?
I mean, I know you didn't write the title, but figured I'd get that question out of the way. It's going to be asked more than once.

I did write that title. I think the explanation that this person generally despises Bernie Sanders and his supporters is dramatically more likely to be true than the explanation that it's trickery on the part of the Sanders or Clinton campaigns.


Only a leftist could be that evil. It's clearly coming from someone left of center.
