Earlier this week in an op-ed at The Hill, the founder of the so-called "liberal" blog Daily Kos, Markos Moulitsas, says it is time for Senator Bernie Sanders to bow out of the Democratic primary, and to let Hillary Clinton have all the delegates and be nominated without a fight, and surrendering to the oligarchs and plutocrats by ceding all of Bernie Sanders' hard-won votes to a well-known long-time pathological liar.
A poll that Markos Moulitsas himself put up at the Daily Kos shows that his own readers overwhelmingly support Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton — but yet, Moulitsas still supports the moderate/centrist/Third Way Hillary Clinton. (A "liberal" website? Don't make me laugh!) --> Daily Kos poll as March 23, 2016 --> Bernie: 12,877 votes --> Hillary: 4,521 votes.
Long before Bernie ran for President I posted a "diary" at the Daily Kos that was critical of the Clintons and suggested a third party. A Daily Kos moderator (or maybe Moulitsas himself) at the website threatened to ban me from the website because it was a "Democratic" website. (Except when it comes to freedom of speech.) So I had since edited it at the Daily Kos (and added my own poll), but the original post is still at my blog — where I had also posted it at the time.
At The Hill in his op-ed today Moulitsas wrote: "You can’t build a meaningful progressive campaign without the support of African-Americans, Hispanics and Asians." So then, because of Black voters in the South, there is no other place for the White working-class to go — except for maybe Trump? The Democratic party is ONLY beholden to minorities now?
It's very clear that the Democratic Party machine has been shutting out Independents in the primary (those who prefer Bernie Sanders) to help nominate Hillary Clinton, betting that they will vote for her in the general election. But I won't; it's Bernie or Bust. I vote my conscience, and I can not vote for a pathological liar — I will not vote for either Clinton or Trump.
The Democratic party's stubbornness to nominate Hillary Clinton may have handed the GOP the White House.
And to Markos Moulitsas and Daily Kos, go ahead and ban me and delete my account...who gives a crap about all those Shillery Sheeple you have.
Politico (March 19, 2016) "If Markos Moulitsas had his way there’d be no Affordable Care Act, no Dodd-Frank, no economic stimulus package. That’s the price when purity tests are applied to Democrats."
Wiki: "Moulitsas also noted that he has endorsed several victorious candidates in upsets, including Howard Dean for chair of the DNC ... Moulitsas is a fellow at the New Politics Institute, a think tank of the New Democrat Network, which was founded by Simon Rosenberg in 1996. The NDN's stated purpose is to help elect 'centrist' Democrats, and is considered by many to be a successor to the centrist Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), an organization that Simon Rosenberg resigned from in 1996."
It's worth noting that former Vermont Governor/now-lobbyist/now-MSNBC pundit (always attacking Bernie) and superdelegate Howard Dean (who Moulitsas endorsed) voted against the people of Vermont and endorsed Hillary Clinton, saying in a Tweet: "Super delegates don't 'represent people' I'm not elected by anyone. I'll do what I think is right for the country." (He made himself a god.) Members of progressive group Democracy for America, that Howard Dean co-founded, overwhelmingly endorsed Bernie Sanders with a record-breaking 87.9% of the votes.
Check out this new Fox News poll. It's clear the Democratic Party machine is shutting out Independents in the primary (who prefer Bernie Sanders) to nominate Hillary Clinton, betting that they will vote for her in the General election. (Screenshots of the relevant parts of the poll here)
I won't vote for Clinton or Trump (it's not a "better of the two evils" choice — they're both wrong for the poor and working-class (Black and White and whoever). It's Bernie or Bust baby!
Hillary Clinton at Stanford University: "Slogans aren’t a strategy!" Then she makes a slogan: "Loose cannons tend to misfire!" (What a damn phony she is, and people still vote for her . . . it's Un-frigging-believable!
Also, why does this pro-Hillary diary at the Daily Kos only cite the best polls for Hillary Clinton — and featuring this post in their newsletter today? (Monmouth National Poll: Clinton 55% Sanders 37%) It also cites that Fox News poll. But here are all the other polls...
- Based on an average of 6 polls, Real Clear Politics shows Clinton leading Sanders by 9.6% (Clinton at 51.3% to Sanders at 41.7%).
- And the HuffPost Pollster (currently tracking 294 polls from 30 pollsters) shows Hillary's lead over Bernie has narrowed to 10.2% (Clinton at 51.3% to Sanders at 41.1%).
It should also be noted that younger people, who vote for Bernie Sanders, don't participate in most of these polls and don't use landline phones. And "registered" Democrats don't include many Independents (that also prefer Bernie Sanders) that aren't allowed to vote in primaries, but can in the general election.
