Get Ready To Hate The DNC Again

Oh my god okay it's not even February yet and I'm already having 2016 flashbacks in terms of DNC fuckery. At least this time we knew to expect them coming after Bernie. I think this is part of the reason why I kind of wanted to support Warren for a while because I knew she was viewed as less of a threat but now she's behind in the polls and ughhhh this shit:

DNC members discuss rules change to stop Sanders at convention

In conversations on the sidelines of a DNC executive committee meeting and in telephone calls and texts in recent days, about a half-dozen members have discussed the possibility of a policy reversal to ensure that so-called superdelegates can vote on the first ballot at the party’s national convention. Such a move would increase the influence of DNC members, members of Congress and other top party officials, who now must wait until the second ballot to have their say if the convention is contested.

Even if you don't support Bernie, this sucks. Giving more power to DNC members and Congress means less power for you, the actual voter, who is supposed to be the one choosing the next president. This is an attack on democracy and this is why superdelegates are fucked up and this is why we need to abolish the entire electoral college system.

The only good news is that this is a small group thus far and they're saying that what they want to do would be difficult. But let's go ahead and get up in arms about it now because I am not sitting through another round of nomination theft. We're watching you, assholes.

But wait, there's more!

DNC overhauls debate requirements, opening door for Bloomberg

The Democratic National Committee is drastically revising its criteria to participate in primary debates after New Hampshire, doubling the polling threshold and eliminating the individual donor requirement, which could pave the way for former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg to make the stage beginning in mid-February.

Okay cool so when your shitty rules were causing candidates of color to drop like flies you were like "them's the rules" but now that a white cis straight male Christian billionaire wants on the debate stage, it's time for a change!

This is why Republicans keep getting elected. Because you, the Democratic party, make everyone FUCKING HATE YOU.

Complaining about the Senate impeachment trial and Republicans breaking rules and shifting the goal posts when you're pulling this shit, fucking hypocritical fuckwads.
