Democrats and progressives too frightened of Trump to demand major DNC reforms must review the following timeline.
First, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and other DNC officials were forced to resign for cheating Bernie Sanders.
In a twist of fate, POLITICO stated “With just three months until Election Day and the Democrats’ official party apparatus struggling to right itself from months of dysfunction and the scandal caused by the WikiLeaks email hack, interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile cleaned house Tuesday with the ouster of three top officials.”
Yes, Donna Brazile forced others to resign for cheating Bernie.
Welcome to Democratic politics.
Before becoming DNC chair after Wasserman’s resignation, WikiLeaks reported Donna Brazil’s bias against Bernie:
Then, the same organization Democrats fear (because it exposes DNC corruption) uncovered Donna Brazile feeding debate questions to Hillary Clinton before a debate with Bernie Sanders:
When CNN severed ties with Brazile because of these WikiLeaks revelations, the DNC chair lashed out at CNN:
Then, Donna Brazile blamed Russia when confronted by TYT’s Jordan Chariton:
After repeatedly denying and evading responsibility for handing questions to Hillary Clinton, and cheating Bernie Sanders in the process, Brazile never faced any consequences.
In the following H. A. Goodman YouTube segment several days before Election Day, I asked why Donna Brazile never sued CNN for wrongful termination, if indeed Russia hacked the DNC and she was telling the truth regarding never feeding question to Clinton:
Now, Donna Brazile finally admits giving Clinton debate questions, while simply calling the act a “mistake”:
After Democratic lies, cheating, and overt bullying, Americans are told we must all unite to defeat Trump’s lies, cheating and overt bulling of opponents.
Even Bernie Sanders Facebook groups are filled with progressives who want to turn the page and address the urgency of defeating Trump; calling for unity with a Democratic Party that overtly cheated their candidate.
The problem, however, is that Trump is on his way to winning in 2020. Democrats demand proof of Trump’s wiretap claim without providing evidence of Trump’s collusion with Russia. Evidence isn’t “moderately confident” NSA assessments, by the way. Even former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper states there’s “no evidence” of collusion between Trump and Russia. Every political attack launched by the Democratic Party against Trump backfires, from Rachel Maddow’s Trump tax debacle to publicizing Clinton winning the popular vote.
Speaking of Clinton, even the mere mention of hdr22@clintonemail dot com running again in 2020 sends waves of panic among progressives, not just conservatives. I’ve actually been accused of trying to cause division among Democrats by publicizing her eventual return to politics.
In addition, Bernie Sanders is quoted in The Guardian giving the perfect description of Democrats:
“There are some people in the Democratic Party who want to maintain the status quo. They would rather go down with the Titanic so long as they have first-class seats.”
Democrats hit the iceberg when they cheated Bernie, and Donna Brazile’s admission of passing questions, as well as the liberal fascination with McCarthy Era politics, spells doom for the fractured political party.
Although Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in American, Democrats would rather go down with the ship than combat Trump with Bernie’s ideals and value system. Nobody on the left is looking into the mirror and evaluating how we got to massive budget cuts, immigrant bans, and a possible border wall. Tom Perez, not Samuel Ronan or Keith Ellison is now DNC chair. Jill Stein and the Green Party are blamed by Keith Olbermann and others for Trump, even though Clinton worked to elevate the New York billionaire.
Therefore, here’s yet another warning to people terrified of Trump.
Democrats didn’t listen when I warned them in a 2015 Hill article titled Why Sanders defeats Trump, but Trump defeats Clinton.
Once again, I’m giving some very simple advice.
Trump is not the biggest political adversary faced by progressives, or loyal Democratic voters.
Trump is a Republican, and Americans knows what Republicans stand for; Trump is the epitome of their value system in many ways.
On the other hand, progressive voters duped once more into thinking Democrats care about their ideals have fallen for the same fear mongering that ushered in a Trump presidency. The notion of “resisting” Trump will lead to more election losses if resistance is only complaining about Trump’s policies or continuing to label him as crazy. This strategy failed once and will fail again.
What progressives, or liberal voters angered with Trump’s policies must do is threaten to break away from the DNC and Democratic Party.
They must demand Bernie Sanders run again in 2020, with either Nina Turner or Tulsi Gabbard as a running mate.
Voters fearful of “Nazis” and “alt-Right” ideologues must first resist the centrist neoliberal ideologues who looked the other way when Obama entered the war in Yemen, waged a war on wistleblowers, increased mass surveillance, and conducted a failed regime change in Libya. Had Trump done these things, they would have been labeled as “fascist” by a liberal media eager to impeach the current president.
Democrats must refuse to unite with the same Democrats who demand loyalty, without showing loyalty to its most passionate voters.
No unity, until there’s assurance Bernie or any other bold progressive voice won’t be cheated again in 2020, or even 2018.
If you fall for the same song and dance, and Trump wins yet again, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Democrats are more focused on perpetuating fear over Russian hackers than advocating the Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2015. Until they spend as much energy championing progressive ideals as they do blaming Russia, refuse to unite with the same people who cheated Bernie and elevated Trump.
