Politics in America is composed of time sections of non-feel, where heartbreak from losing a campaign is not allowed and grieving political results, in the idea of the media and popular phonies like Sarah Silverman is only allowed in short, structured periods. The press may applaud Sarah Silverman for being insensitive but what she had to say at the DNC – that is not how emotions work. Certainly that is not how the emotions that led to the Bernie Campaign work. Grieving is different in us all – its length and its breadth and the DNC, the media, and Sarah Silverman can’t decide when it should occur. I pulled a section of an article about grieving from online:
“Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but any loss can cause grief, including:
The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief. However, even subtle losses can lead to grief. For example, you might experience grief after moving away from home, graduating from college, changing jobs, selling your family home, or retiring from a career you loved.”
“Grieving is a personal and highly individual experience. How you grieve depends on many factors, including your personality and coping style, your life experience, your faith, and the nature of the loss. The grieving process takes time. Healing happens gradually; it can’t be forced or hurried—and there is no “normal” timetable for grieving. Some people start to feel better in weeks or months. For others, the grieving process is measured in years. Whatever your grief experience, it’s important to be patient with yourself and allow the process to naturally unfold.” http://www.helpguide.org/articles/grief-loss/coping-with-grief-and-loss.htm
The media, as idiotic as always, failed to understand the needs of the grieving people. They only understand their timetable – the timetable of the show.
“But while she articulated the argument for Sanders voters to get behind Clinton, she also displayed a flash of unscripted irritation, which appeared to anger some of the Vermont senator’s delegates in the room. After a day of rolling emotions, Silverman said: “To the ‘Bernie or Bust’ people, you’re being ridiculous.”
“The remark came after a unifying speech, which began with her own declaration of support for Sanders.” https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/jul/25/sarah-silverman-youre-being-ridiculous-democratic-convention-bernie-sanders
“They know that they are faced with a choice they find genuinely disconcerting, the possibility of feeling rotten either way, of being ridiculed by someone no matter what they choose.”
“They are acutely aware that they are under pressure to reach hasty conclusions.”
“It’s tough, because the second I was right outside the Wells Fargo Center after the walk out, a reporter started asking, ‘Do you support Hillary now, do you support Hillary now?’” Perez told me. “And it’s like, ‘Hold on, hold on a second, I don’t know, I don’t know yet.’ But in a way it’s like, it feels someone saying, ‘Alright, move along, time to go,’ you know?”
“She believes she will vote for Clinton in the end, because she does not want Trump to become president. But there is a difference between the recognition of some future probable state of mind, and the fact of being there already.” https://newrepublic.com/article/135578/give-bernies-distraught-supporters-break.
When it comes to emotions don’t trust the media – take your time , be genuine to yourself, the media couldn’t give a shit about your pain – and neither do their lackeys.
