Idiots. They don’t show up for elections. Who the hell cares about these so-called youth leaders. I for one will definitely not donate to the group. They must think we are stupid!

These are young people who mobilized for numerous rallies and protests for more than a year. The idea that they didn’t have the time to show up at a polling place or put a ballot in mail simply doesn’t pass the smell test for me.
What seems more plausible to me is that there was widespread voter suppression combined with a carefully engineered divide-and-conquer strategy that was designed to create a rift in the growing progressive left.

And offer Hunter a high paying position while you’re at it. Amazingly enough that’s not considered buying influence.

This is quite a list. Makes Bernie wanting M4A, $15/hr and free state college tuition look like a piker.
The party just spent all their efforts to stop Bernie. They didn’t do that just to give up even more to the “youth vote”.
