Nicole Grattarola: Why wouldn't a Democrat group adhere to the DNC script?

Kye Pederson: Sounds very similar to a few groups I belong to. When you speak truth about the Dems, especially Obama, they attack. Refuse to believe the DNC and the Clinton campaign rigged the primaries and committed election fraud. And now they are starting to slobber over Kennedy.

Christina Michelle: I'm convinced that the hundreds of millions Hillary spent on PR firms went to create a lot of these groups and to pay trolls to inhabit them. I've been kicked out of a feminist group for mentioning her support of banning late term abortions. I've been kicked out of two groups for defending Bernie and criticizing the DNC. Apparently, a lot of groups that purport to be anti-fascist have no problem with censorship of dissenting opinions.

From Bernie Sanders Megagroup 2020: Karol Richine Wilson ~~~~ Good to know. Appreciate you. Thanks; this past 3 days seemed like 2016!

Val Taire: Stephen Fox, I've had to leave a few Bernie sites because they were co-opted by Hillbots. One was Public Corruption Monitor and Clinton Timeline site. One site with a long name. The site has since changed its name and become a closed group. That change was precipitated by a Member in another group alerting us that the new anti-RT policy had indeed taken place. At that time, we turned to the site en masse and stated our objections. We also took the administrators to task for their Hillary leanings, destroying the focus of group, blatant removal of members' posts/comments and rebuking its members. In fact, the original creators returned to the site giving history detailing how those two administrators destroyed the group. One administrator responded by deleting our comments. It became very heated.

I learned from that administrative coup two telltale signs of Hillbots takeover. First, people whose opinions/postings are highly factual, stop posting or commenting. Secondly, administrators castigating readers or deleting their comments, another red flag. I mistakenly assumed readers had voluntarily removed their comments or possibly I was confused.

Also, trust your instincts. You see an uptick in Pro DNC or Hilly comments, bingo. Read comments that are false and misleading, bingo.

For the record, on Reich's site, one reader referred to me as an "un-persuadable" and urged everyone to give up their efforts. (Yes, they have a persuadable and un-persuadable Strategy!)

Reich's blog is another example. Before primaries were underway, Reich stated, "Sanders, if you want change; Hillary: if you want status quo." His site was soon overrun by Helots and CTR. I once admired Reich but now consider him a fallen hero. Actually watched Reich and Chris Hedges debate and Hedges truly outperformed Reich. Such a disappointment to see Reich succumb to Resistance cheerleader and ignore the lies of Hillary and Obama. Cannot understand him being part of Sanders Institute

Lynda Stone-Garner I recently got in an exchange and it may have been that name I'm not sure now but it was full of Hillbots and they blocked me apparently they didn't like what I said. Name-calling was prevalent on this site.

Michele Cortright I never heard of it but I've had a lot of arguments about JFK 3 and the other bad Dem choices. I'm getting called a troll today more than usual. They don't like to hear the truth. Green party people need to unite because Dems are vicious.

Dell Hewey~~~Dems are vicious?? When she was running for president, Ms. Stein, of the Green Party, called President Obama a "tool of the capitalists" and a war criminal and said that passage of the Affordable Care Act was a huge mistake.

Michele Cortright~~~Truth be told, under Obama more bombs were dropped daily and more people were deported than any other.

Rodney Latstetter~~~It looks like the old David Sims group Hillary for 2016. Sebastino Grasso is an admin and one of the worst $hills ever. My guess is that it is still a Hillary group, period.

Early in the 2016 Primary campaign, I started a Facebook group: Bernie Sanders: Advice and Strategies to Help Him Win! As the primary season advanced, we shifted the focus to advancing Bernie's legislation in the Senate, particularly the most (more...)
