Re: The DNC Lawsuit and Democrats that want to dismiss it.
Going around in many other places, I find Democratic Partisans trying to justify their lack of coverage or care about the DNC Primary corruption case.
Where they would put up this ridiculous deflection and even quote: http://www.newsweek.com/myths-cost-democrats-presidential-election-521044
Bottom line: The “scandalous” DNC emails were hacked by people working with the Kremlin, then misrepresented online by Russian propagandists to gullible fools who never checked the dates of the documents. And the media, which in the flurry of breathless stories about the emails would occasionally mention that they were all dated after any rational person knew the nomination was Clinton’s, fed into the misinformation.
In the real world, here is what happened: Clinton got 16.9 million votes in the primaries, compared with 13.2 million for Sanders. The rules were never changed to stop him, even though Sanders supporters started calling for them to be changed as his losses piled up.
My response would have been as follows:
That is a laughable response.
Bottom line: Donors gave money to the DNC expecting them to be faithful to their charter/bylaws where they should be neutral when it comes to their candidates. Given that the information provided is valid, its validity does not change no matter the messenger.
Dismissing verifiable information just because one does not like it, and attacking the messenger is childish. I could care less if the information comes from Russia, point of contention is, Democrats attack the source because they do not want to deal with the content.
Not just that, the lawyer even mentioned saying that they can return to the point where a group in a smoke-filled room can decide who their candidate is. If that is not corrupt, I don’t know what is.
The fact that the DNC condones such a thing is antithetical to the sanctity of elections. That shows that they are unbearably corrupt. What this does, is state that letting people choose on their own is unimportant to them, and they will install insiders.
What the lawsuit argues is that the DNC will choose their candidates with no regard to the will of the voters.
Even the argument of the lawyer to dismiss the suit where it says that Donors know that the DNC will have a preferred candidate and donors should not have any expectation of neutrality is disgusting.
The lawsuit is about asking for Neutrality from the DNC, in which even the Lawyer admits that the DNC is not by virtue of their argument.
If the DNC does not clear this up one would have a hard time believing that their votes count during primaries. Where the DNC will just set up some Corpocrat, and just insult everyone else by saying get-in-line, you have nowhere else to go. The issue for them is of course, people have found other venues, and they may fade in to irrelevancy.
In any case, how very authoritarian of them with the immediate deflection, and dismissal of fairness in voting. Let My People Vote indeed, the irony is hilarious.
If this suit gets thrown out, I will probably be unable to vote for a Democrat again, as I would consider them an installation of the establishment. The bastion of the old guard who are unwilling to change and comfortable with how things are.
If such is the case, the Democratic Party becomes an institution that has to fade to irrelevancy.Passionate Progressive, Land of Enchantment, Katashi and 58 othersHaikugal, daleanime, libodem, Babel 17, ThinkingANew, Aerows, ChiciB1, Koko, ronRonnie, Ohio Barbarian, HeartoftheMidwest, twenty, TIME TO PANIC, ccinamon, VenusFT, ElfinWilde, mak3cats, disillusioned73, kath, Salemcourt, xynthee, PADemD, 3FingerBrown, DesertRat2015, slay, joentokyo, Rocker, Betty Karlson, madfloridian, beltanefauve, HomerRamone, Fuddnik, Testudo, hopemountain, graycat, snot, bbgrunt, h-32, Peacebird, ThouArtThat, arendt, Utopian Leftist, historylovr, baran, Baba OhReally, jopacaco, Scuba, MistaP, NV Wino, Mnpaul, Enthusiast, Segami, incognito, elias39, broiles, Marym625, ZimInSeattle, mmonk like this
