    If only this exact same strategy had been tried before to get Trump in the WH
    Actually, this is NOT beneficial to Bernie at all; it is detrimental.

    All of the other Democratic women who came out to talk about Biden putting his hands on them are completely undermined by this unreliable, exaggerated story by this particular person.

    For examples:
    Time.com states former Nevada State Assemblywoman Lucy Flores told her story last week. Flores said Biden approached her at a 2014 campaign rally and kissed the back of her head.
    A second woman, Amy Lappos, said Biden touched her face and rubbed noses with her at a 2009 fundraiser.
    Caitlyn Caruso said Biden put his hand on her thigh and hugged her at a university event.
    D.J. Hill said Biden in 2012 touched her shoulder before moving his hand down her back.
    Biden has made faux pas which if you profile them you can see that he goes too far and crosses some boundary. Like when he threatened the guy to go outside. This is completely different from a rape story. This false story overshadows legitimate concern about his electability.

    It benefits Biden by not only silencing concerns but also making him look like a victim from the Bernie camp.

    Was the Al Franken allegation so much worse than this that he was pressured by fellow Dems to resign, but nobody has anything to say about rape allegations against the one person in the party who everybody secretly agrees is a creep around women?

    Bernie Bros don't give a shit. It's all about tearing anyone who isn't Bernie down so that Bernie can rise up in comparison. Bernie Bots (i.e., the Russian backed efforts) likewise won't care and will only push lies that have to be defended.

    It's the old, "Make the bastard deny that he's a pig fucker" strategy most often attributed to LBJ. The point isn't the truth--it never is--the point is to spread the lie.

    See? Look at what Pyramidhead is doing. Sanders is done. It doesn't matter that he refuses to accept it--exactly like he refused to accept it this time in 2016--he's done. He has zero chance of winning.

    So what happens? Does he accept the objective results of the actual voters? No, of course not. He--and his followers and the Russians--now double down on Biden to make him the worst possible candidate.

    If you are not with him, you are against him. It's literally the Christ mythology strategy. Only Sanders is unreproachable. Only Sanders is the One True God. If you can't recognize that, then you are part of the "establishment"--the "orthodox" the San Hedrin--out to destroy him.

    It's pathetic and transparent. And Pyramidhead--like all others of his ilk, whatever it may ultimately be--won't ever stop doing it even if it means four more years of Trump.

    The allegation of sexual harassment/assault is a serious one and should be taken seriously.

    The allegation of some sort of media conspiracy to cover this up is just another Bernie Bro sour grapes story and should not be taken seriously.

    A google search gives a number of results but none of the MSM (CNN etc) show up as a result. Odd.

    Yeah, not certain why Fox News would cover this up. Apparently there is other stuff going on at the moment.

    Bernie bros actually do give a shit. Their problem is they are too naïve and ideological. So when moderate Democrats use extreme propaganda or make extreme statements like saying Trump is Hitler or women should always be believed, they believe it. The Clintonite Democrats are just doing this for votes, thinking in the short term. In the long term, their hypocrisy is exposed and it leaves Bernie bros standing out in the cold by themselves wondering what happened. As a result, some 12% end up completely rejecting and distrusting EVERYTHING the Clintonite Democrats say and they start even believing in Trump. If moderate Democratic establishment types like Biden, Clinton, and Perez would just be honest and not engage in political hyperbole to begin with, then that would start to reshape how we do politics for the better.

    In the right-here-and-now, we have to deal with this particular issue. Biden is just a little bit handsy and aggressive, not a rapist. Some prominent female Democrats have said so. There are videos of him being aggressive with males, too, like the guy he threatened. It's not as bad as Trump and no one is perfect. It's okay to actually admit that Biden is imperfect and also say he is not a rapist.

    Biden bros do not have to claim that Bernie is a Russian agent on top of this. All that does is create future generations of hyper naïve extremist Democrats.

    Think about the future for fuck's sake!

    Huh. I assumed this was Biden's attempt to court the Republican vote.

    2. She doesn't seem like a trustworthy person. She writes some articles with the name "Alexandra Tara Reade J.D.," but evidence she has a J.D. seem flimsy at best.
    Might she be a dyslexic D.J.?
