To be clear, the Clinton cultists do extend that seething, irrational hatred of Sanders to progressives in general but Sanders is the focal point of their mindless rage. They will rage against progressive policies they, themselves, allegedly want merely because said policies have come to be associated with Sanders. This is what Clinton herself did during the campaign. When, for example, Sanders was harping in his major issue, the poisonous influence of money in politics, Clinton, who has aped that same reformist rhetoric for years, opted to treat this as merely some sort of personal attack on her and to make the rounds in the press insisting the very idea that money had influence on politics was ridiculous, thus undermining the entire premise of reform (and denying reality in a way that echoes Trump in its extremity).
