Another look at some Bernie supporters

Just a reminder to Bernie Sanders supporters:
Your guy didn’t win the nomination.
Get over it.
The only respectable thing to do right now is support Hillary Clinton and make sure that she—and not Donald Trump—is the next president of the United States.

A disputatious few of Bernie’s revolutionary army have repeatedly stoked up the Democratic Convention without any apparent sensible purpose. Their guy has ostentatiously asked his supporters and delegates to get behind Clinton. How come these raucous few delegates aren’t paying any attention to him now?

The Pew Research Center says that 90 percent of Sanders supporters have transferred their political support to Clinton.

Anecdotally, it seems that a couple hundred Sanders delegates, mostly from two states, have been beating the drums at the convention, saying over and over again that they want Sanders to be the nominee. 

What’s the point? Anyway, it isn’t news, so why are the media endlessly and uncritically reporting it?

One wonders if some of these delegates are saying out loud that they feel the Bern, while privately they are simply Hillary haters wearing Sanders hats.
