The bullying actions of these Bernie supporters have the potential to eventually drown out his ideas, tarnish his legacy, and mock the idea of a political revolution.
That’s not really the point. These supporters, and Sanders does not rebuff them, use the same tactics that are used in Europe, in France, in Greece and other countries: they are a minority and they want to block the democratic process.
In fact they prefer having Trump in office because they find it easier to criticize him, because the situation would be bleak. Let people suffer, they think, to learn how they have to become “revolutionary.”
