I have said this in other threads when you disrespect and humiliate your best natural allies, that is not a strategy to win.
I find it strange that the democrats that supported Hillary take such delight in humiliating there fellow democrats that supported Bernie.
They won, they should be conciliatory towards them, not sticking a knife in a open wound turning it and then pouring vodka on it as they celebrate. Because psychologically that is what they are doing, why are they so stupid, or are they just that arrogant and out of touch this election cycle. This has nothing to do with Trump either, it's about the political process on the democratic side that went off the rails.

This illustrates it quite well.

EDIT:
Also something interesting I read, in 2008 Obama was the outsider and the same people that supported him are most likely the same people that supported Bernie, they won. And the establishment Hillary people all came around, I was carefully reading the Huffington Post at the time and the division in the comments section were real, there was a real divide. But it healed very quickly. The Obama people weren't mean spirited they basically said look we have a better chance at beating McCain with all this enthusiasm behind us, which was very true.
I think many will not join Hillary when they might have had they been a little more respectful of the process.

Some will vote Trump, others not all, and I am hearing that many more will vote Jill Stein in a protest vote.

Because many "Bernie supporters" are Trump shills.

The Hillary side is so so blind that they can not see . They didn't see the fraud and claim it was only rumours .Don't ask them why the chairwoman resigned because they will just say that she decided to move on up ....its been a hard year on my popcorn stash ....

Or Russian paid trolls masquerading as disenfranchised Bernie supporters so they can divide and tear apart the Democrats and make it easier for Trump to win in Nov.

I'm a Bernie supporter and no one (on the left) has tried to humiliate me. I'm sure there is a small group of Bernie holdouts (10%) who still feel that Hillary is "the competition", therefore feel they must hold tight to Bernie... It's the same 'team mentality' mindset that pits right against left, or that divides the Mets fans from Yankee fans... They don't give up their "loyalty" just because their team loses.

They live in kind of a fantasy that they're RIGHT and the other side is WRONG. I'm not big on that mindset. I'm into moving forward in the reality at hand. This is how it is, people. Let's move on.

Besides...90% of Bernie Supporters will Vote for Hillary

If they aren't Trump/Putin shills then they're a very small minority of Bernie or busters that are becoming irrelevant by the minute. Bernie no doubt attracted Green party voters and socialists into the Democratic primary. They were never going to vote for someone other than Bernie.

Most sane Bernie voters have already jumped ship over to Hillary's campaign.

Maybe if instead of saying bernie was a commie, and bernouts where sjw idiots, maybe if the right would have played nicer in the sandbox some might have voted trump.

You cant insult and bully people then turn around and say why dont you guys like us.

Hillary's employees are getting quick responses on ATS.

It might take them a little longer, since they are paid Hillary supporters, but ATS members don't kowtow and are knowledgeable. If you come at a real ATS member with 'troll' or trying to shift blame line. You probably will have the opposite effect of what their boss wanted

It's a pattern that follows the left everywhere.

They cast a wide net, at first. Then things get more defined, they have to kick others out of leadership as they follow their vision for whatever country they are in.

Example

Which one is racist

-going to eat at ethnic restaurants
-not going to eat at ethnic restaurants

You can find many liberals arguing both sides. If you disagree with them, well you are a racist.

Actually I do empathize with the Bernie people because of how the Ron Paul people got screwed over on the other side in 2012, wasn't as loud or noticed but Romney did a real number on them.

It just tells my the political parties in America are broken.
The only reason Trump beat the establishment is because he is a celebrity teflon cameleon, a type TPTB had never dealt with before, and we have reached a unique moment in history.

This election should have been Bernie VS Trump, a pure battle of ideologies that Americans could vote on.
Instead now the perception is that we have a battle between a Crazy Court Jester and an Evil Crooked Witch that should be going to jail.

It's really sad and pathetic.

I am sorry but i scoff at this part above.

Obama PRETENDED to be an outsider but the Establishment fully supported him. The DNC GIFTED Obama with delegates that Hillary actually won from Michigan and most of the 'Undecided' votes, too, when the Rules & Bylaws Committee met in May of 2008 -- and Obama had voluntarily removed his name from the ballot.

Also, Obama supporters were VICIOUS to Hillary supporters and anyone else opposing him. The racebaiting was stomach-churning and it was relentless.

I left the Democratic Party thanks, in large part, to the racebaiting racebaiter Obots and have never looked back.

To this day, they are still racebaiting anyone who criticizes Obama.

Passionate people of all of walks life can come across pushy, arrogant and demeaning. That's why Miss Manners will tell you not discuss religion or politics in "polite company".

That being said, Debbie Wasserman Sholtz, like it or not, made it perfectly clear, early on that "Super Delegates" were in place so that candidates "wouldn't have to run against Grass Root Activists". Right or wrong, the National Democratic Party leaders saw Bernie Sanders' campaign as "grass roots activists" and wanted to derail it. So yeah, some feel that the Democratic Party "let" Bernie run. Republicans did the same thing with Ron Paul. Lotta hurt feelings among Ron Paul supporters too.

That might have been true during the primaries, I do recall that, your right.
But after the convention it stopped, the DNC was fully united to win.
They had picked they guy with the biggest crowds coming out of all the people trying to be President.

Hillary had the smallest crowd between Trump and Bernie.
