Leaked Emails Reveal the Real Bigots Are in the Democratic Party
After being told for weeks by very concerned liberals and media pundits that Donald J. Trump represents the second coming of Adolf Hitler, it is richly ironic to learn that Hillary Clinton’s Democratic National Committee (DNC) planned to target Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for his faith.
(And it is Hilary Clinton’s DNC: Rep. Debbie Waserman-Schultz (D-FL) resigned on Sunday after Wikileaks revealed emails showing that the DNC and the media conspired to stop Sanders’s insurgent candidacy.)
In one email, Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall allegedly said: “It might may (sic) no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”
Note that at least part of the senior leadership of the Democratic Party presumed a) that the voters of Kentucky and West Virginia are religious bigots; b) that Southern Baptist voters in those states are bigots, perhaps even more so; c) that these groups might have some problem with voting for a Jew; and d) but they would be even more troubled by voting for an atheist.
Forget Donald Trump and his retweets. This is as close to an honest-to-goodness “dog whistle” as you are going to get. The DNC actually contemplated appealing to the presumed prejudices of their own bitter-clinger voters by planting questions in a public forum.
Meanwhile, the Republicans concluded their convention last week with a black pastor, a single mother, an openly gay entrepreneur, and a guy whom the Democrats will try to paint as a racist for the next four days.
Good luck with that, now.
You know what the biggest joke of the all of this is? The biggest joke they’re trying to tell us, “Hey, nobody knew that the Democrat National Committee had rigged the game for Hillary. Nobody knew.” Crazy Bernie supporters didn’t know. Bernie didn’t know. Come on, everybody knew. Maybe they didn’t. But everybody knew this game was rigged from the get-go, on the Democrat side, before we got the email release from WikiLeaks. Who would have ever believed that Democrats have come to be defined by secret emails that have been dumped on us, emails we were never intended to see.
It’s funny now that the Democrats are running around now trying to blame this on the vast right-wing Putin conspiracy. You know, the important thing, they want us to believe, “Hey, it’s not what’s in these emails that matter. It’s who leaked ’em.” And that was Putin. And supposedly we’re supposed to believe here that Putin is working with Trump, which would be a horrible, horrible thing, in order to derail the lovely and gracious Hillary.
What’s in the emails, of course, not a factor. Remember here, the nature of the evidence counts not a whit when the Democrats are involved. Some of this stuff is pretty vicious toward Bernie Sanders, mocking his religion, setting up phony Craigslist jobs postings and so forth, ostensibly from the Trump campaign. Well, the dirty nature of the Democrat Party, the dirty trick nature has been fully exposed.
But here’s the thing, folks. If you read the New York Times and Washington Post and USA Today, you really are not hearing that much about this today. If you watch CNN, you’re hearing a little bit more than you’re getting in the New York Times, but you’re not hearing this story in its full-fledged impact. They’re covering it up. They’re trying to sweep it aside as nothing to see here, and of course they would, because these emails prove that news agencies are in league with the Democrat National Committee.
For example, a Politico reporter actually submitted stories to the Democrat National Committee for approval before he even sent them to the editor at the website. They gave approval and advance knowledge of questions to Chelsea Clinton and a number of other Democrats. It is clear — look, this we’ve always known, is the point. This is confirmation for me, not surprise. This is confirmation because we’ve always known that the Democrat Party and Drive-By journalism are one and the same thing.
Journalists today are Democrat operatives that have bylines. They’re just deployed at newspapers and TV networks and websites, but they’re Democrat hacks. They’re operatives. That’s their objective is to advance the Democrat Party agenda and to protect Democrats. And these emails make clear that that happens.
I mean, we’ve got people at the DNC getting hold of F. Chuck Todd at NBC and saying, “Chuck, we’re not really pleased with the angle you’re taking there. We’d like to see you moderate that maybe a little,” and Chuck Todd dutifully conforms. So it’s not just a question of bias. I mean, that clearly exists, but that doesn’t explain what’s going on. This is full-fledged compatibility, people that are on the same side.
