    Stay woke?

    Ok

    Here is how I have not fallen asleep.

    I will bring back a post I wrote four months before the general election….from this thread.

    Let’s talk about the role of the media.

    The now ousted DNC chair’s outrage with Mika Brzezinski and the following strong arm letter to her superiors over Mika’s innate awareness of the DNC bias toward Clinton.

    Or…..the writer that submitted his article to the DNC for review, and then following DNC recommendations, made it more favorable towards Clinton.

    Everything from the media now comes into question. Capehart, Maddow, Mathews, Hayes, all of them, or their superiors, coordinating closely with Democratic headquarters to take down Sanders.

    The best and most revealing response to this is; “Sanders isn’t a true Democrat.” Don’t even get me started on this line of reasoning. It infuriates me to no end.

    Folks, we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg.  We haven’t even touched on the election fraud that is very convincing from a statistical perspective. Hillary beat the odds over and over again. From multiple coin flip tie breakers in the Iowa primary to strategically distributed provisional ballots that ended up in shredding machines. From exit poll data conflicting with actual results to absentee ballots radically deviating from the mean. Computer analysis has yielded a convincing argument for fractional vote totalizing. A 150,000 registered Democrats mysteriously dropped from the Brooklyn register rolls. That would be the same Brooklyn as Sanders home town.

    The visual senses don’t align with the results either. The optics of enthusiastic crowds, waiting in line for hours to see Sanders. The deceiving, optimizing camera shots of Clinton in small venues with small crowds, squeezing every bit of  possible “enthusiasm” from a dull yawn fest of a stump speech.

    The fund raising doesn’t align with the results as well. Sanders adds a brief plea during a debate, and he breaks a single day fund raising record, and to prove it wasn’t a fluke, he was able to reproduce it almost at will. Hillary? She has to send her daughter to fill in for a scheduled stump speech so she can catch a flight to meet up with some bundlers. Thank goodness Bon Jovi was there to provide entertainment for the $2700.00 sirloin brunch. Embarrassed by the disparity in contribution size, she makes a profound email plea to “Maddie” for a one dollar donation. Of course that dollar doesn’t mean shit to Clinton except that if she gets enough of them, the diluted contributions might present her as a reasonable approximation of a populist candidate…..like Sanders.

    Then there is the debate schedule. I could rant about it, but I believe we have beaten it to death and everyone is quite aware of the Clinton favoritism by the DNC. It is well documented.

    How convenient for the DNC to send a mole into the Sanders campaign, a plant who would eventually hack into the DNC data base, and allow for the DNC to accusingly point their finger at the Sanders campaign for illegal access. This little weasel act served three purposes. First was the initial bad press. Second was the denial of Sanders to his data in the crucial days before Super Tuesday. Third was to glean the identities of Sanders supporters from his confiscated data base. Gee……I wonder which registered Democrats were mysteriously dropped from the registers and handed provisional ballots on election day?

    I put the burden of proof upon the corrupt DNC to convince us that they were not behind every fucking bit of it. I leave it to them to prove me wrong. Until then I will relentlessly present all of this as truth.

    4. True and beautifully written

    It’s incredible that the clear and obvious election fraud was never investigated.  The Obama admin. wouldn’t have done it, but I wish Trump would, especially with his new FBI head, whomever that will be.

    Maybe someone could tweet him a link to your OP?  Might grab his attention and make him focus.

    5. This poster will make it well known that the DNC are just as low-life as the…

    ….republicans.  Actually, in some ways worse.  We expect republicans to be sleazy and underhanded. I don’t forget and I won’t forgive.

    The Democratic party is dead.

    7. Now it all makes sense –

    Clinton, etal, on the 2016 campaign trail had a strategy to attract republican votes. Could they have been playing the long game planning for those votes in the 2020 cycle? Whether this was somehow intended to be one of their longer term goals, or if things are just working out that way doesn’t change the facts. Those of us who understand what happened, and it did happen according to plan, will not crawl back to their party. Sadly though, a vast majority of voters will play the red/blue game again in both the off year and the general elections. Reading your words now dramatically reinforces just how sold out we were (and will be again).

    A reasonable request: Reduce daily TV viewing time by 1/2 hour starting now. Ask others to do the same, follow through with them, break the media habit. FI - Simple and straight forward, just like this place, solutions without the bullshit.

      8. There was a big and nasty strategy being played

      The Dems were inviting the Bush Admin and all their money into our “Big Tent.” The idea was to force the Left to vote against the “Extreme” Right in favor of the almost extremely right. Like everything else lately, it was an attempt to normalize the previously unthinkable.

      Theoretically, all the elements were in place to make it work…except the economy is still crap and people still don’t trust Hillary. The loss of confidence in Obama made the covert and overt marriage of the party to the Bushes smell less like roses and more like it should be.

      Maybe we’ve reached a sea change…but don’t expect the people sitting on the gravy train to give up without a fight.

        12. The population in general would rather glance at the nice bright shiny object

        We (the masses) have been led into thinking of political losses and gains each as a single event – take what they’re calling the internet freedom bill. No one is told by the media that this is an old fight for net neutrality. Instead we’re told that pretty soon the internet freedom bill will be coming up, as if it isn’t currently nor previously discussed. We are led to believe that the congress critters go blindly into work wondering what’s going to happen today? Then they vote, the opposition without having time to read the content, and it’s over. Either it’s a win or a loss. Game over. What’s next?

        Until the public is beaten and belittled enough to feel the pains wrought upon us, they will refuse to look at the dark underbelly of having a government run by corporations and oligarchs, with the media as spokespersons. To accept their own inaction or rethink their stance is too much trouble or too painful, so they live in ignorant bliss. In the meantime we few continue fighting the same battles against it, exposing realities to friends and acquaintances when we can, only to see them again revert to their previous belief, and proudly confronting us a week later on how wrong we were. But we fight on.

    Well done, Mick!

    I watched it unfold right before my eyes. I could hardly believe what I was watching and the Democratic Party and the media were doing it!
