The Democratic Underground went into the election last week absolutely confident in Hillary Clinton's victory. As we shall see they were even openly gloating about her winning the presidency before the election even happened. And then the Trumpocalypse shockwave hit them hard. Very hard. In fact, they went into such a deep state of grief that their website shut down. Here is their laughable official excuse:
The Democratic Underground website is currently in an uproar. The overwhelming majority of them, Bernie Sanders supporters, are in stark opposition to the very few on that site who favor Hillary Clinton. Among the few Hillary supporters is the founder of that blog, Skinner aka David Allen, who as we have seen before is an over the top fanboy of Clinton. However, what most folks at DU probably don't yet know is that Skinner has a big financial connection to the Hillary Clinton campaign via his wife, Shelly Moskwa, who served as a Clinton campaign treasurer during her 2008 presidential campaign and is still receiving payments from the current Hillary campaign. Federal Election Commission documents as well as Open Secrets available on the web reveal those payments are substantial yet Skinner, in the interest of full disclosure, has never mentioned this to his fellow DUers and none have challenged him on this point...until recently.
The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails. ---Bernie Sanders
Actually the above quote was pretty much true for liberals, especially those at the Democrat Underground...until now. With the Iowa caucuses only a couple of days away and with much at stake, suddenly the DU supporters of Bernie have gotten very interested in those "damn emails" especially since a number of them have been labeled top secret at the very highest level. As you can see on this DU thread, the DUers now sound very much like "vicious rightwingers" on this topic:
It’s the end of the year which means for about the next two months, families will be getting together for holiday festivities. To most people, November and December are something to look forward to but to the perpetually unhappy souls over at Democratic Underground, the holidays are a time of torment.
Besides the sheer horror that Thanksgiving is to those of the vegan persuasion, many DUers have conservative-leaning relatives who aren’t afraid to speak their ideologically diverse opinions. Things are made even worse by the fact that many of the tender lambs might also be exposed to the propaganda filth machine that is Fox News Channel whether in a public space or in someone’s home. Whatever is an intolerant hyper-partisan Democrat to do?
