What do my fellow Sanders supporters say to this?

Today I alerted on a thread that advocated that the left ally itself with the religious right in order to form a "winning" team that would tear down the corporate oligarchy at the expense of the civil rights of women, lgbt, and people of color. And maybe a few southern states which would end up as fascist theocracies. But who cares about them, right? It was allowed to stand. Some of the people who recommended it I've seen post as Sanders supporters. I'm a little dismayed that I seem to be grouped with people who would agree with this op and support it. It has caused me to consider if I'm in the right place as a member of this group. I'm a low key poster and likely I wouldn't be missed. Wherever I am, I will support Senator Sanders who I don't believe would advocate throwing anyone under the bus. I believe he wants everyone to have a seat, and, if he didn't, I would never vote for him.

Below are the results of the alert. What say you?

On Sat Sep 26, 2015, 10:31 AM you sent an alert on the following post:

What if the Religious Right allied with the Working Left?


This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.


This is the most vile and evil post I've ever seen on Du and i've seen a lot of vile stuff. Throwing fellow Americans under the bus is not a Democratic value. it's not even a human value.


A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Sat Sep 26, 2015, 10:48 AM, and voted 2-5 to LEAVE IT ALONE.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This alert has to be the dumbest I've seen in a month. The post in question is not a violation of community standards.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: The premise of the OP is a bad idea, but I think it sparked a good discussion and those opposed made a great case for why the premise of this post is a bad idea which is why I'm voting to leave it.
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: And people wonder why women and POC feel like they are being under the bus here at DU. And this is from people who actually think they are MORE principled. Screw that- you're not going to use us as a wedge issue and destroy the party. Go join the loser libertarians or greens. You don't belong here.
This is disgusting.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I can not agree with the alerter, in fact it speaks a true possibility.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: The alert message seems to bear no relationship to the post. It seems like the person alerted on the wrong post.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Go argue in the thread. Posting ridiculous ideas is not a hideable offense.
Juror #7 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Funny, this post does not surprise me, as vile as it is. I've been expecting something along these lines since mid August. People have lost their minds. Many have just become brazen.
