#DemExit: Bernie Supporters React to #DNCLeaks

#DemExit: Bernie Supporters React to #DNCLeaks

“So does Bernie want to take back his endorsement yet?”

https://twitter.com/PollyTickal/status/756065706907533313

Kemberlee reported that leaked emails put out by Wikileaks suggested that DNC scuttled the Bernie Sanders campaign and were targeting his religion as part of their plans.

Hillary probably wishes these email were the ones deleted, as they clearly show that instead of treating Sanders as serious candidate for the Democratic ticket, the DNC worked against him and his campaign to ensure Clinton received the nomination.

One email from DNC Deputy Communications Director Eric Walker to several DNC staffers cites two news articles showing Sanders leading in Rhode Island and the limited number of polling locations in the state: “If she outperforms this polling, the Bernie camp will go nuts and allege misconduct. They’ll probably complain regardless, actually.”

Instead of treating Sanders with impartiality, the DNC exhibits resentful disdain toward him and the thousands of disenfranchised voters he could have brought into the party.

…The release provides further evidence the DNC broke its own charter violations by favoring Clinton as the Democratic presidential nominee, long before any votes were cast.

#73 DemExit

Now, instead of #FeelTheBern, many long-time Democrats are burning their party registrations in a movement that is trending as #DemExit.

My personal favorite:

And while #DemExit was born in the wake of the Sanders endorsement of Hillary, the Wikileaks reveal has inspired many to join. The #DemExit tweets were flowing fast as I prepared this post.

However, not all supporters are into #DemExit because they despise “Crooked Hillary”. Investor Adam Townsend, who provides his Democratic membership background in his explanatory post, is #FineWithTrump.

America needs a true leader, not just someone swathed in American iconography and reciting focus group certified slogans. We are anemotionally frail country. A generation of Americans have never known a country not at war, not in debt, not printing money. We have to get out of the state of wardom, spend our money on us and save for our future.

  • I believe Trump’s business failures and successes are precisely what makes him qualified.
  • The solution to creating more and better jobs is not more government, its less.
  • As an employer, Trump understands how onerous the government and its compliance and regulatory structures have become. Washington has led an assault on business.

I suspect the Democratic Party’s convention is going to be a lot of fun this year! Pass the popcorn!

Can anyone, with a straight face, say that Lyin’ Ted would be better suited than Trump to capitalize on the disgust of Bernie supporters?

    The distinction between Trump and Cruz is illustrated quite nicely in this Bernie question. Trump is happy to appeal to voters who willingly and knowingly support a self-proclaimed socialist who has sung the praises of the Soviet Union’s particular brand of communism his entire life.

    So, no, I cannot assure you that Cruz would be a magnet for communists and socialists. I happen to think this is a plus.

      Speaking of the devil, looks like Guccifer2.0 is really the Russian government:
      https://twitter.com/ninjaeconomics/status/756953977946771461
      So perfectly timed to the DNC.
      And why in the world would they want to aid Trump? Can’t think of a reason….

      And Fuzzy, the answer to your question shows why your (and Ted Cruz’s) approach will never get another republican elected.

      Mitt Romney won one of the greatest % of white votes ever and it wasn’t enough. So, where are the rest of the winning votes going to come from? The options are from Berniebros or from minorities. And minority votes have no cultural or historical connection to true conservatism or to the constitution. Also, keep in mind that the disgusting campaign to rile up minority anger called blacklivesmatter is ongoing.

      If God forbid Donald Trump doesn’t win, the Republican Party will be openly advocating for socialism in 4 years. (You know that this is true because you know who the Republican Party leadership is).

        Well, Trumpster is ontrack to just squeak by with the white waters, so there you go.

        Likely the Republican Party will be advocating socialism in four years in either case. And that’s why it will be a party on the road to extinction.

        Likely the Conservatives will either start their own third party (Mark Levin and the Landmark Legal Foundation have already laid the groundwork for this) or the Conservatives will en-mass migrate to the Libertarian party and commandeer it.

        Either way, I expect that the Republican party is finished as an organization after this Presidential election cycle. The base (which is largely made up of Conservatives) have suffered too many insults.

          I agree Chuck. The Rep party has become diluted with a victim tribe so large that it will never be the same. This tribe includes the likes of David Duke because Duke agrees with Trump or, better, Trump thinking matches Duke’s thinking.

          The GOP could have also nominated Kim Kardashian. She is successful at what she does and she knows how to market her herself just like Trump Towers. And, Trump is only a hair to the right of her politically, if you watched his shtick of a life.

          Trump’s The Art of the Deal is effectively about getting what you want at any cost to others. And that is what America’s victim tribes are all about. Enter Trump.

        I do not disagree, rotten, on the majority of your points. Americans are becoming more and more open to big, bigger, biggest government, and this, sadly, includes people who believe themselves to be on the right. Heck, they may indeed be on some new right that is now the Trump GOP, but I’m an old-fashioned kind of gal who still thinks that dated bit of parchment containing our nation’s Constitution is pretty darned near perfect. I’m in the minority on that point . . . obviously. And yes, Ted Cruz is, too. He did miscalculate the Republican base and the American people. He did think that fundamentally America and Americans were still conservative or even that the remains of Reagan’s voters along with Tea Party types were out there, somewhere in America, just waiting for someone to come along who was truly sincere about the American experiment, about making it work, and who not only has read the Constitution but understands its foundational premise and tenets. That he was wrong about this does not strike me as something to rejoice or crow about. It makes me truly, deeply sad.

        The entire nation, including the GOP, is drifting so far left that I am appalled. Not angry. Just deeply, truly sad. The answer, however, is not and never was and never will be Donald Trump. Well, I guess that depends on the question. As noted above, Americans are simply not interested in individual liberty or smaller government or anything else that I recognize as American. This new, fundamentally-transformed America took a self-proclaimed Socialist seriously for the highest office in this Constitutional republic, continues to provide the worst president in my lifetime with favorability ratings that defy logic and reality, and indignantly resists decreasing the size of government.

        This new America is peopled by persons who have been gradually, over many decades, conditioned to seek salvation and the solution to the nation’s myriad problems in one man, one ruler who will fix it all. This new America demands that a central government invade and dictate every aspect of their lives. From jobs to health care to education to myriad entitlements, this new America demands so much from the central government that its needs can never be met. And so the cycle of anger and frustration and disgust rolls on as presidents and congresses come and go without fixing every single American’s problems, without addressing and solving every single roadblock or perceived injustice that Americans face, and so the demands grow. Fix the border, fix health care, fix education, fix “hate” and make it go away, fix the intolerance for the LBGTQ community, fix student loans, fix (the thoroughly debunked) gender wage gap. . . “Just fix it all. Now.” screams this new America to this man or that, to this woman or that.

        That call will be answered. Of course. That particular cry, that demand of a people, is always answered, after all.

      Yes, but Cruz simply does not appeal to the larger electorate. What is the mystery?

      Love Ted as you might (I do): but he would not garnered the amount of votes Trump will garner.

      This is a math debate, not a political one.

        The question is ~why~ Mr. Trump will be bringing in all those additional voters.

        Which is it:
        1.) Disaffected Sen. Sanders Socialists who think that Mr. Trump will be more likely to implement their political ideals than Sec. Clinton?

        2.) New voters that have been raised on Mr. Trump as a TV celebrity, and are voting due to his celebrity status and are Low Information Voters (LIVs) for all purposes and have no loyalty?

        3.) Voters from the Democrat party that believe that Mr. Trump will ‘moderate’ his views once in the White House, and in order to stay will marginalize the Republican party, and only believe his statements now are expedient, rather than heart-felt?

        4.) Voters who had abandoned the elective process because they felt BOTH parties are corrupt, and believe Mr. Trump in his statements that he’s going to burn the apparatus to the ground and start fresh?

        I’m not sure that ANY of these individuals are voters that are particularly valuable other than simple math numbers. Very few, if any, will be involved post-election. Even then, the question is whether the incoming votes will be able to sway the small number of states where the structural deficit is surmountable AND those states where voter fraud can be prevented.

    If Lyin’ Ted was our nominee the race would be over today!

    He would have a zero chance of beating Crooked Hillary!!

      Senator Bluto Blutarsky in reply to Common Sense. | July 23, 2016 at 9:23 pm

      If.

      For having the moniker “Common Sense” you seem to lack it in any significant quantity.

      Sen. Cruz would have a fair chance at defeating Sec. Clinton in the General election. Would there be some structural hurdles? Of course. But in the arena of ideas, Sen. Cruz would mop the floor with Sec. Clinton, and it would SHOW in the debates.

      Is it right to sell the soul of the Republican Party in order to bring in voters who actively disdain Conservative beliefs? That sounds disturbingly like cultural relativism (what is good for this moment is good, even if it was bad yesterday, rather than objective good of the Nation).

      This actually may be the election which leads to the end of the two-party system (assuming the Republican party survives at all).

        murkyv in reply to Chuck Skinner. | July 24, 2016 at 1:08 pm

        Ted didn’t win a single Republican Debate.

        And yet he could out-debate Hillary with the moderators completely in the tank for her?

        I used to think like you do when I was a die-hard Cruz supporter.

        Ted showed us all that he is in this only for himself, and nothing else.

        Much the same as Hillary

        Kepha H in reply to Chuck Skinner. | July 24, 2016 at 2:04 pm

        Like your comment, but I recall the Obama-McCain debates. McCain raised facts, figures, and argument; the O only said “hope…change…hope…change” as if he were an automaton with a wind-up key in his back. However, the MSM declared him the winner of the debate. They’d do the same had he been up against Shrillary Shrooooo.

      Sadly, your non-“sense” has become all too common.

    Can anyone, with a straight face, say that they would WANT to associate with a bunch of socialist morons who shit on cop cars and burn American flags?

I love it that Trump is openly soliciting Sanders voters. Hillary has to be worried.

Do Bernie’s donors have a legal case? They donated millions and relied on the fairness of the primary process.

Wouldn’t it be ironic, to see Hilliary brought down by a email scandal…but not HER email scandal.

I knew the fix was in the minute the Iowa caucus declared the Hildabeast the winner the minute the polls closed.

    tom swift in reply to Stan25. | July 23, 2016 at 8:15 pm

    The D’rats are pikers. In too many ways, the GOP has them beat. I recall a couple of states which declared Cruz the winner of the delegate race before the polls even opened.

      Paul in reply to tom swift. | July 23, 2016 at 9:04 pm

      Really? Which states and who called it before the polls opened?

      The Republicans are weak and pathetic. Much like Obama, they will only fight unfairly (the Obama example is that he makes war on his own citizens; the GOP makes war on its own supporters) and like Obama, simply cave in the face of real opposition.

News that surprises exactly nobody. I mean, really? DNC was pro-Clinton and anti-Sanders? That is the big reveal?

If anything, Sanders voters are likely more upset by Kaine. That pick was a slap in the face a lot more than some Wikileaks.

Don’t forget that the Hitlery campaign has funded the DNC from the beginning of this cycle. Why the BernieBots expect anything different?

PUMA take 2! Just think of all the times the dems told the GOP that the GOP needed to be more inclusive to bring more people in. The dems should have taken their own advice.

Debbie Downer is so deep in Hillary’s Armani jacket pocket that she’s covered in lint.

That the DNC wanted Hillary to get the nomination is no surprise at all to anyone who has been watching. They tried to run off Sanders, and they succeeded in running off O’Malley and Webb (remember them? of course not). How many other Democratic pols decided not to run because they knew they’d have to fight both Hillary and the DNC? We’ll never know for sure, but I do wonder if that was part of Biden’s calculation.

So the DNC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Clinton Enterprise, got what they wanted. With the leaked emails they get to own it. I couldn’t be happier.

I think a plan of disruption has been in the works for a long time and the wikileak timing confirms it.

Whoa! This just leaked out too!

“While developer Donald Trump was busy getting the Republican Party’s presidential nomination this week, he was losing big in a Miami-Dade County courtroom.

Circuit Court Judge Jorge Cueto, presiding over a lawsuit related to unpaid bills brought by a local paint store against the Trump National Doral Miami golf resort, ordered the billionaire politician’s company to pay the Doral-based mom-and-pop shop nearly $300,000 in attorney’s fees.”

“Make America Great – One shafting at a time!”

Looks like someone read The Art of Litigation!
