We’re all aware Hillary owns her party like a refugee owns his child bride, so anyone who’s been paying attention has known this from day one. Still, it was never really confirmed until now. A new document has leaked that shows, despite Sanders candidacy, the DNC had always been getting “ready for Hillary.”
From the New York Post:
A document to the DNC dated May 26, 2015 — a month after Sanders kicked off his presidential bid — declared that “our goals & strategy” are to “provide a contrast between the GOP field and HRC.”
HRC stands for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The document, posted online by the hacker “Guccifer 2.0,” outlines ways to hit back at the GOP presidential field, such as “use specific hits to muddy the waters around ethics, transparency and campaign finance attacks on HRC.”
In other words, all of their efforts were focused around “HRC” because she was their sacred calf. Bernie was in the race but is, oddly, not mentioned. Neither is Martin O’Malley. Ditto for Lincoln Chaffee and his dream of relaunching the metric system. That’s because Hillary was ‘presumptive’ long before a string of shady primaries and superdelegate decisions.
The question now is; what are Sanders fans going to do about it?
Some Sanders backers say the document shows what they’ve felt all along: The system was rigged in favor of Clinton.
“With proof that #Bernie never even had a chance, I shall double down and vote #BernieOrBust in Nov. @TheDemocrats,” tweeted a Sanders supporter from Chicago.
Sanders has declined to drop out of the Democratic primary race. Among his demands to Clinton and the Democratic National Committee: Oust DNC leader Debbie Wasserman Schultz and get rid of superdelegates.
A: Nancy Pelosi’s recent refusal to stand by Debbie Wasserman Schultz may indicate that Bernie is about to get at least one of his wishes.
B: Don’t, for one second, fool yourself into believing that Bernie’s disciples will stand by their principles. They’ll talk a good game but, when November rolls around, their resolve will crumble like one of their shaky right-wing terrorist narratives. These proud socialists will simply head to the polls, line up like good little drones, and pull the lever marked ‘D.’
After all, a closet anti-American socialist is almost as good as one who’s outed himself.
