In what appears to be a complete meltdown of the left, the head of the Democratic National Committee will not speak at the party’s national convention, which starts tomorrow.
After emails released by Wikileaks show collusion between the national party and Hillary Clinton to destroy Bernie Sanders, Debbie Wasserman Schultz will not have a speaking role in order to “keep the peace,” CNN is reporting.
This means she won’t speak because the Bernie Sanders supporters would boo and heckle her off stage, and they just can’t have that.
One particular email shows DNC staffers plotting to use Sanders’ Jewish faith (or lack thereof) against him.
In one email, DNC chief financial officer Brad Marshall says he wants to get the question of Sanders’s faith raised — apparently in primaries in Kentucky and West Virginia. The email was sent to DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda, Deputy Communications Director Mark Paustenbach and CEO Amy Lacey.
“It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist,” reads the email.
Another e-mail suggested the Democratic National Committee had pro-Hillary moles working inside the Sanders campaign.
Yet another series of e-mails showed the DNC plotting to create an anti-Bernie narrative that could be used against him. Here’s the entire e-mail from Paustenbach to Miranda. Note the dripping sarcasm and disdain:
Wondering if there’s a good Bernie narrative for a story, which is that Bernie never ever had his act together, that his campaign was a mess.
Specifically, DWS had to call Bernie directly in order to get the campaign to do things because they’d either ignored or forgotten to something critical.
She had to call Bernie after the data breach to make his staff to respond to our concerns. Even then they didn’t get back to us, which is why we had to shut off their access in order to get them to finally let us know exactly how they snooped around HFA’s [Hillary For America] data.
Same was true with the standing committee appointments. They never got back to us with their names (HFA and even O’Malley got there’s in six weeks earlier) for the committees. So, again, the chair had to call Bernie personally for his staff to finally get us critical information. So, they gave us an awful list just a few days before we had to make the announcements.It’s not a DNC conspiracy, it’s because they never had their act together.
Donald Trump – trying to score points (and votes) from Bernie supporters – blasted the DNC.
Leaked e-mails of DNC show plans to destroy Bernie Sanders. Mock his heritage and much more. On-line from Wikileakes, really vicious. RIGGED

Folks, if you thought the floor of the Republican convention was raucous when Ted Cruz spoke – you just wait. The Bernie Sanders supporters are not going down quietly.
