The revolution is not being televised but it is definitely happening. The decent people are disgusted. The images coming out of Nevada are revealing the fact that this is not a democracy any more. In fact, I don’t know what to call this. If it’s not criminal, what is? The entire process from the beginning was fixed, but that wasn’t enough.
An excellent article and especially the section that speaks to the usual nonsense about a Democratic loss being the fault of those who don’t for for the Anointed One. We hear the same childish blame game all the time. It’s time for Bernie’s supporters and independents to understand that they are not beholden to either Hillary Clinton or the…
The entire election process in the U.S. is undemocratic. Sanders is being undermined by the DNC/KILLary camp and the republicans as well (AZ example). This country is the laughingstock of the entire world.
People are pissed….
I am Bernie or bust because I (and millions of Sander’s supporters) absolutely loathe Shillary and her “business as usual, say anything, but support corporations and war” stances are in direct opposition to what we want. I’m 64, and have voted Dem all my life; but the Democratic party has not reflected my values since Carter, and is now more…
Another good column, Yvonne. I also wonder why Clinton’s supporters are willing to settle for this behavior. I know you are planning to go to Philadelphia during the convention and I am glad you are but I am also kind of worried. It’s feeling as though the ardent Clinton loyalists, such as Boxer, are crossing the line from inconsiderate and undemocratic to dangerous and frightening. :-(
I couldn’t agree more about all the excuses.
My biggest problem is the minimizing our legitimate concerns about the election process by calling us sore losers. This is no longer about Bernie vs Clinton. This is about us and our votes being suppressed. I don’t care if DNC is treating Bernie unfairly. I care that the DNC treating us unfairly.
Oh BS. Take it elsewhere. So tired of excuses for voter suppression. It’s hard to play nice when democracy is being stolen right in front of your eyes. Boxer tried to incite a riot by her comments…it’s clear on the video, but Berners held it together. If this election fraud was one isolated instance, OK. But this entire primary cycle has been rigged…
What a sad little response to such an insightful article. Were you there? Did you see this “mob” full of young parents with small children and elder Americans inspired by a positive vision for America that does NOT involve pay-to-play weapons deals and enabling Wall Street parasitic drains in the health of our nation?
