if you have seen the way the corporate media, conservatives, and the centrists in the labour party have treated jeremy corbyn then this smear against bernie sanders is just another example of the attempt to vilify the progressive left. neoliberal centrists argue about unity, but they would rather throw progressives under the bus because they actually threaten the status quo (and their bank accounts).
the right-wing AND the centrists using this shooting of republicans to attack bernie sanders just demonstrates another tacky way they have both tried to undermine the progressive left. bernie sanders has never incited violence. he has only ever campaigned on bringing universal healthcare, free college tuition, ending poverty, and ending corporate corruption. he has a D- rating from the nra, and he remains one of the most vocal critics of trump. to equate bernie sanders and all of his supporters with this violence is outrageous. it is shameful.
