It is amazing to think that the Democratic Party still exists at all, after the filthy behavior displayed by the left side of the aisle during the 2016 election.
During that fateful contest, former Secretary of State and then-candidate for President Hillary Clinton was caught rigging the primaries against her opponent, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. The scheme was made public by Wikileaks after Clinton had been crowned the nominee, and this set off a firestorm of backlash by Sanders’ supporters.
In the general election, Clinton was trounced by current President Donald Trump, thanks in no small part to the Bernie Bros abandoning the Democratic Party after the scandal went public.
Now, in 2020, there are fears that Hillary Clinton may be attempting the same sort of treasonous takeover, even though she isn’t even running.
Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ White House bid and some Democratic National Committee members are frustrated with some initial appointments made by DNC Chairman Tom Perez to the crucial committees that will oversee the rules and party platform at this summer’s presidential nominating convention in Milwaukee, Wis.
Their frustration comes after Perez named former Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts – who was a surrogate for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign — as co-chair of the convention’s Rules Committee. And Perez picked John Podesta – who served as Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager – to have a seat on the committee.
Bernie’s team is already fuming.
While the Sanders campaign didn’t respond for comment, national co-chair Nina Turner slammed the appointments as “an embarrassment” and a “slap in the face” in an interview with the progressive online news channel Status Coup.
And DNC committee member Yasmine Taeb – who backed Sanders in 2016 but remains neutral this cycle – told The Hill that “there’s a very small number of appointments of allies to Sen. Sanders.”
“The appointments also include individuals that are outright hostile to Bernie Sanders and his supporters,” she added. “It’s not the message the DNC should be sending to the grassroots right now when we’re all working aggressively to defeat the racist in the White House.”
If this isn’t evidence of the “deep state”, then I don’t know what is.
