Yep! With all the Lamestream Media’s erratic fear-mongering and the Democrats’ constant attempts to use this outbreak as a means of attacking our President, I’m not sure if this is COVID-19 or COVID-1984.
Really! What does all of their hate- and fear-filled jabbering boil down to other than, “Coronavirus is ungood and anything President Trump does or doesn’t do is doubleplusungood!”
With just two candidates left – well, three, but Gabbard is not to be mentioned – the Dems really look like they’re in some desperate need of counseling. While Biden is taking the majority of states, Bernie is holding strong along the Left Coast. And the two camps truly and viscerally hate each other.
It’s a bit of flame war already between the #NeverBiden and #NeverBernie sorts, with some regional partisanship, i.e., the Left Coast vs. Everyone Else, thrown into the mix as spice. for this upcoming shit sandwich.
Yeah, it looks like the Dems need some serious help if they want to avoid the chaos of a contested or brokered convention. And this is only made harder for them since the DNC was “forced” to strip 1st round voting privileges from the Superdelegates in the wake of Hillary and the DNC’s use of them against Bernie in 2016. Hence, it’s going to be hard for them to avoid the nightmare.
And that’s just the start of this messy. messy, messy political divorce. Biden, who is the one that the major players in the DNC want to be nominated, is positioned to be on the sharp end of the BernieBros’ and #BernOuts’ petulance, much as Hillary was in 2016. Much like Bernie, if the DNC can’t once again shut him out, will be faced with all the more moderate Democrat voters who won’t be likely to vote for a Socialist.
So, no matter whether they install Biden as their nominee or if Bernie manages to get it this time around, the Dems are going to go into the general election in a weakened state … and their leadership knows this. That’s a large part of why they’ve been pushing their campaign of hatred against President Trump so hard. They’re hoping hate will trump Democrat voters’ internecine factionalism.
Despite meeting the current at the time requirements for being included in the next Democrat Primary Debate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI 2nd ) has been forbidden to attend, the DNC having decided to change the criteria after Super Tuesday so as to exclude her. This, of course, is more than a little likely to come as a surprise to many who didn’t know that Gabbard was still in the race, which is, in and of itself, not shocking since the Democrat “Leadership” and their pet media has essentially redacted Tulsi Gabbard’s entire campaign.
Revenge Is A Bitch
What seems to have happened is that Gabbard found out the hard way that revenge is a bitch, a bitch named Hillary Clinton, the de facto ruler of the Democrat party at this time. After all, in the early parts of the race to see which Democrat would run against- and likely lose to President Trump, Gabbard was trending quite well. Then, Hillary Clinton proclaimed that Gabbard was a “Russian Asset.” At that point, both her DNC and the ever-dutiful Lamestream media not only turned their collective backs upon Gabbard but actively shut her out and went silent on her and her campaign.
Tulsi Gabbard had been a Vice Chair in the DNC, but she quit to support Bernie Sanders during the debacle that was the 2016 Democrat Primary “race.” That’s the exact sort of thing that Hillary remembers and gets revenge for.
Heretics Must Burn
Gabbard sin, beyond earning Hillary’s ire, was that she was and is a heretic. She has shown insufficient orthodoxy and compliance with the Dems’ dogma of impeaching President Trump via any means at their disposal.
Yeah, the heads of the Democrat party and their media didn’t much more than that to cast out Gabbard. They’re not the sort that tolerates such heresy.
Why It Sort Of Matters
As an American, the only reasons that the redaction of Tulsi Gabbard matters are that she was the most potentially dangerously Democrat candidate and she’s been removed and that the DNC’s and Lamestream Media’s doing so is a nadir of hypocrisy that bears mention.
So yes, I’m quite pleased that the organization running the elections for our domestic enemies chose to “erase” the candidacy of the one person on their side that I thought could be a credible threat. However …
Tulsi Gabbard should have, the Democrats’ own oft-ranted criteria, received far different and better treatment by them, especially at this time.
Gabbard is a woman. The last woman in the Dems’ primary race
Gabbard is a “Person of Color” by Dem standards. Again, the last one in the Dems’ primary race
Gabbard is a Hindu. She is, in fact, the 1st Hindu Presidential candidate
Yeah, if the Democrats were even a little close in their own behavior to what they claim to want everyone to do and believe, they probably wouldn’t have redacted Gabbard’s campaign and they certainly wouldn’t have cut her out of the remaining debates.
Ah yes; Our Friendly, affable, and oh-so-creepy Uncle Joe. It would be a bit odd that he was the likely Democrat Nominee – No, I don’t think that the Dems will allow Bernie to get the nomination – given that the “Gaffmeister” seems a bit detached from normative reality and quite consistently says things that are more than a little strange, except that Biden is literally their best Presidential candidate for POTUS.
