Gee, Why Don't People Like The Democrats?

Democrats are all like "omg Trump is so un-democratic, Republicans are attacking democracy, they don't want people to have a voice like we do" and then go and do shit like this:

Democratic Leaders Willing to Risk Party Damage to Stop Bernie Sanders

And that's the New York Times saying that.

Dozens of interviews with Democratic establishment leaders this week show that they are not just worried about Mr. Sanders’s candidacy, but are also willing to risk intraparty damage to stop his nomination at the national convention in July if they get the chance. Since Mr. Sanders’s victory in Nevada’s caucuses on Saturday, The Times has interviewed 93 party officials — all of them superdelegates, who could have a say on the nominee at the convention — and found overwhelming opposition to handing the Vermont senator the nomination if he arrived with the most delegates but fell short of a majority.

Alright here's a fucking question. How can you have the most delegates and not have a majority at the same time? This is why people hate politics.

Anyway, it baffles me that so many liberals still think that "but Bernie Sanders isn't a real Democrat" is a good argument for them to make against Bernie Sanders.

Fuck the Democratic leadership. They are rich, mostly white male and generally privileged assholes who are more invested in protecting their own power than doing anything for the vast majority of the people they're supposed to be representing. They are part of the problem.
