I can't help the fact that people who have not read my qualified case for Clinton attribute unqualified advocacy to me.
Sanders continues to claim voting in a party primary is a Revolution when it is not. He still claims he can accomplish extraordinarily more progressive outcomes than Obama did which he cannot. He continues to refuse to run as a Democrat in the Senate or support down-ticket Democratic congressional races and attacks the party as "Establishment" all the while trying to assume a position of leadership over it. And he is actively misleading his mostly neophyte supporters about the delegate math he faces and the unlikelihood that party superdelegates who resent all of this would ever switch to supporting him short of a Clinton catastrophe.
It is true that my pragmatic case for Clinton has assumed a more ethical dimension over time. Sanders has disappointed me enormously. I was pleased that the candidates demonstrated how far left mainstream Democratic party politics had moved in the aftermath of Occupy and BlackLivesMatter and expected Sanders to use his national campaign to educate a broader electorate about left policy questions. He has instead demonized his rival and made promises he cannot keep and provided few to no details about anything. I consider his campaign an actively mis-edcuational one at this point and a prompt for generational demoralization that will be costly to the radical ambitions of the left opened up by the ruins of neoliberalism.
I do not conflate Sanders and Trump, but emphasize that any political appeal to white working class voters in America in particular will structurally conduce to racist politics in general. That is a hard truth you may want to deny, but it is true nonetheless. The Sanders campaign is demonstrating this whether you like it or not -- and the Trump campaign, well, surreally more so. Part of the problem here is that so many people are still sensitive because even after generations of carefully making the point that it is not so, asserting that one is abetting structural racism is still misconstrued as an accusation that one is exhibiting racist animus. This leads Americans to waste a huge amount of time tending to white fragility whenever one attempts to address the actually real impacts of white supremacy on actually real people of color.
The Sanders campaign -- and especially Tad Devine -- has explicitly admitted its appeal is to "whiter" states and the results still overwhelmingly bear that out for anybody to see. In fact, these results have assured both Clinton's primary and eventual Presidential victories.
I do agree that it is easy for people who don't want to pay attention to the arguments I am making to misconstrue them. That is always true, and there is nothing I can do about it. Since Sanders is losing, will lose, and deserves to lose, it doesn't bother me much.
