Berners smear David Brock

Speaking of straight white male playwrights I dislike - I see that Jason Grote still hates Hillary Clinton. He might be second only to Doug Henwood in his rage-filled and intensely personal hatred of our next president.

So it comes as no surprise to me that he's one of the Berniebros who are trying to smear David Brock. Here we see him retweeting a typical smear-job, in which Berners claim, on the basis of unsupported rumors, that David Brock is paying people to attack Sanders on social media.

One of their favorite attacks is this:

Now here's my question - are all of them really so mind-bogglingly ignorant of the career of David Brock that they don't know that not only did he personally apologize to Anita Hill, but he wrote an entire book, Blinded by the Right, devoted to explaining how he had a change of heart and converted from a right-wing literary hit man to a liberal stalwart, all while coming out of the closet as a gay man?

Or do they actually know that Brock is now a serious enemy of the Koch brothers and promoter of liberal causes and they just don't care because nobody who favors Hillary Clinton is any good no matter how progressive they are? Because to support Hillary Clinton is to admit that you have signed a pact with the Devil? And so smearing him with bullshit is exactly what he deserves?

Or do they believe that no matter how much Brock has apologized and how much good he has done since the bad old days, he will never be forgiven?

But if that's the case, then why should we forgive Bernie Sanders for writing this?
A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused.
A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.
The man and woman get dressed up on Sunday — and go to Church, or maybe to their 'revolutionary' political meeting.
Have you ever looked at the Stag, Man, Hero, Tough magazines on the shelf of your local bookstore? Do you know why the newspaper with the articles like 'Girl 12 raped by 14 men' sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?
Of course if Hillary Clinton had ever written anything like this the Berners would never shut the fuck up about it.

Now as far as David Brock paying people to promote Clinton - I haven't seen confirmation from reliable news sources, but I doubt the Clinton campaign has done anything the Sanders' campaign hasn't already done.

But I think this is most likely another attempt at delegitimizing Clinton with a rumor-mongering smear.

But if he is paying people for fighting with Berners - HEY BROCK WHERE'S MY MONEY?
