    No, it's just a war on decency. Democrats do it, too. To each other! I mean, I thought taking malice for supporting Hillary would come from Republican side, only. It's coming from Sanders side, too.
    And i like Sanders, have always been supportive of him. But I'm seeing a not so nice person in there, and some of his supporters act like I just got off the turnip truck....20 something yr olds, smh.
    What we have is simply a war on decency.
    No one bothers to be decent anymore, because we gotta win win win.
    If I copied things said to me because of my views, you would think I was a serial killer.
    I don't know when this became standard behavior, but i do remember a time when it wasnt.

      I change my mind.There is a war on Democratic Party.Trump, who wanted a civil riot in that arena last night, is waging war on Democrats and democracy itself. He needs to be caged, for all our sakes. Never have I seen such a dangerous and demented man

    Well it's really not a war but an action to try and put the other contender down. This is normal in a democratic election. As things stand Bernie is trailing, but he could still make a comeback. Hillary is propped by big business and the mood among the electorate is not for her. She kinda looks stale.
    In case she were to get the nomination, there will be a sure shot defeat. Thus both Bernie and Hillary are at 'war', but this is normal in an election. The stakes are high and winner takes all

    In reality, it is left wing activists who are actively at war with the right, including calls to kill conservatives, prosecute people for holding politically incorrect opinions and engaging in violence to shut down conservative events.

      You call Trump a conservative?  Conservatives are denying it left and right. He's a despot, and a gangster. Look at Rubio. He's sick at the thought of him. And i don't blame him. Incredible evil.

    There is no context for me to answer this question.

    Both parties have become corrupt and the warring in the Democratic party you are seeing is between those who are fine with the status quo, and those of us who are progressive/liberal who have seen the democrats move further and further to the right in capitulation to the Republicans.  The moneyed interests took over decades ago - and they did it to both parties and people are pushing back now.  Sadly, they are still succeeding at the "divide and conquer" game.  If the people of this country learned about policy, started paying attention to the laws passed, etc. we might all band together and take power back.  As it stands now; people are ill informed on all sides and the elections are a joke. The two party system is insanity (doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results).  I hope this election highlights the need and even brings about the creation of a viable 3rd and even 4th party.  The sane republicans could take back the their party from the tea partiers and actual liberals could have a voice again.

    Nope. All the war is from within the party.
