In short: bullshit. Bernie lost the nomination in March. He made some strategic errors that he wasn’t able to recover from. Why can’t anyone own that Bernie lost because of Bernie? You all think Hillary lost the GE because of Hillary. Same holds true for Bernie in the primaries. He fucked up. Own it. Stop blaming Hillary and the DNC.
Independent voters weren’t suppressed. The rules of the game were known by everyone before the elections started. Bernie took the super delegates for granted, thinking he could win without them. Even so, throw out those delegates and he lost to Hillary in the real delegates, too. He lost. Because of himself. Own that.
