Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Then, as the cherry on top, in a discussion about how a portion of "the left" helped Republicans win the election by joining them in attacking Democrats, you proceed to attack Democrats then rationalize the behavior.

Point of order: People doing the "Bernie would have won" skit after the election cannot be the cause of losing the election. Cause has to predate effect.

I personally don't think it's a particularly productive activity, given that neither Sanders nor Clinton will run again (Sanders is too old, and Clinton has lost for the second time in a row). But as defeat post-mortems go it's not out of bounds. Not very persuasive unless it comes with some actual data behind it, but not a priori out of bounds either.
