Bernie Corners Democrats, Makes Them PROVE They Care About Democracy



so as you all know lately the Democratic Party establishment has been especially vocal about their desire to protect democracy because they are suing WikiLeaks and Russia for allegedly meddling in the 2016 elections in fact let's hear what DNC chairman Tom Perez had to say about them wanting to protect elections that's what we believe in this Democrats election should be fair ok so if you believe that elections should be fair then let me ask you this Tom when Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by 14 points was it fair that they both walked away with the same number of total delegates since Hillary Clinton already got 6 super-delegates to admit to her before anyone in the state even casted their vote do you really think that's fair Tom of course it's not fair anyone with a brain knows that that's not fair so while the Democratic Party continues to virtues signal about how much they care about democracy I find it really strange that none of them have come out to denounce super-delegates because we all know about the ongoing civil war within the Democratic Party and one of the biggest issues one of the biggest concerns for the Sanders wing of the party is super-delegates so why wouldn't democratic party leaders who purport to care about democracy come out and denounce super-delegates why wouldn't they call for at least the reduction and super-delegates if they care so much about democracy it's really curious I mean Tom Perez certainly won't commit to cutting super-delegates Nancy Pelosi won't either nor will any other Democratic Party leader nobody's spoken out against this in spite of their insistence that they care so much about democracy so how can you continue to claim to care about democracy and the fairness of elections if you refuse to come out and denounce super-delegates which is an institution that's inherently unfair it makes no sense right so apparently Bernie Sanders agrees with me and with his team is trying to do is force members of the Democratic Party particularly Democratic party leaders to come out and show their cards and finally once and for all denounce super-delegates because according to BuzzFeed's Ruby Kramer atop Bernie Sanders official is asking Democratic Lee including Hillary Clinton to sign a draft letter recommitting to vastly shrinking or effectively eliminating the party's controversial super delegate system and ultimately changing the presidential nominating process the Sanders Ally his former campaign manager Jeff Weaver is in talks with Clinton's team about the letter and also plans to solicit signatures from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez and DNC Vice Chair representative Keith Ellison according to two people familiar with the undertaking the effort to make Democratic primary is more fair a process that has spanned two years two committees and dozens of arcane rules about how to make changes to the rules is nearing its long-awaited end next month the party's rules and bylaws committee convenes to begin drafting the final language that DNC members will or will not approve in about this summer committee members remain divided on the idea of a 60% reduction some like longtime party leader Leah Daughtry support eliminating super-delegates altogether on a first ballot convention vote others see super-delegates as a crucial part of the primary system a safeguard against nominees like President Trump said one rules and bylaws member alene Camargue a DNC member who has studied presidential politics for years so I love this I think that this is a brilliant move because as they continue to tell us how much they care about democracy Bernie Sanders is saying look you care about democracy well now's the time to put up or shut up sign this letter it's a simple thing you can do to tell us that you really care about democracy and you're consistent even if super-delegates would hurt the establishments chances at maintaining the status quo well what matters really is democracy right isn't that the ultimate goal to make sure that elections are free and fair so why won't you sign this letter and it's incredibly apparent that they don't want to sign this letter and they are avoiding it like the plague because I mean think about this it doesn't behoove them to sign this because if they unequivocally take a stand against super-delegates and they're really giving up a portion of their power that is needed for them to rig primaries but I mean if they don't condemn super-delegates it also hurts them still because they look like frauds especially after they continue to harp away about the need to protect democracy and ensure that elections remain free and fair and what Bernie Sanders team is doing here is backing them into a corner and basically forcing them to take a stand no more fence sitting if you care about democracy then show it right now now as I alluded to they're not even recognizing the existence of this ladder in fact interestingly enough spokespeople for Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer claimed to have no knowledge of this letter and we also have yet to hear from Hillary Clinton or the DNC or Tom Perez and I find this absurd because let me remind you Bernie Sanders is already compromising super-delegates is an institution that is so unfair is so inherently undemocratic that it should be abolished entirely but Bernie Sanders is already compromising saying look I'm not even calling on you to completely abolish super-delegates just reduce them and they can't even do that they are the biggest hypocrites ever they continue to care so much about democracy or claim that they care about democracy rather and they refuse to even do something simple a symbolic gesture that shows that they're in support of reducing super-delegates if Nancy Pelosi were to hypothetically sign this letter saying she supports even the abolition of super-delegates well that doesn't necessarily mean that the DNC members voting would listen to what Nancy Pelosi says and just automatically abolish super-delegates so I mean really this would be inconsequential for people like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to come out and bend down but they can't even do that they can't even do the smallest gesture ever to prove to us that they care about democracy and I want to go back to some of these arguments in favor of keeping super-delegates what DNC rules and bylaws member alene karmak says she wants to keep super-delegates in order to stop a candidate like Donald Trump from becoming the Democratic Party's nominee so you're literally admitting here that you are against democracy you're saying here you're admitting to all of us that if there's a candidate that you don't like that wins the Democratic Party nominee the party should be able to overthrow the will of voters so you're against democracy you're making an argument that's inherently authoritarian let me remind you that democracy is literally in the Democratic Party's name so this should be a no-brainer for them but here you have members of the DNC rules and bylaws committee admitting that the establishment should be able to unilaterally undermine the will of voters if they opt for a candidate they don't like well guess what sometimes candidates who you don't like win that's just one of the many consequences of democracy so either you're for democracy or against it this issue is very black and white but apparently some DNC members are taking a stand against democracy now again we don't necessarily know if Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will sign this letter or Hillary Clinton we don't know but what we do know is that they haven't done that yet and that they are dragging their feet and trying to pretend that this letter doesn't exist and that in and of itself is incredibly telling support this podcast by becoming a

  • Bernie Sanders Just Dance silly for the 2020 elections housing him because he says that marijuana helps children relax so his party can molest them has been going on for years now I guess they molest them they make them disappear the Democratic party has been responsible for The Disappearance of so many children and he said for his own mouth and it couldn't his party with Pelosi so the children are coming up missing because it's sex offenders it is not his Democrats who eat children just look up s e n n o nyx.com and you'll be surprised it's not sex offenders

  • Bernie Sanders just in a mess the eating cooked baby human babies he said what's the problem we should have restaurants everywhere and have a place to put the Dead

  • It seems to me that the Democrat elite will rather loose, than to allow for the possibility of progressives taking over. The elite is not in it for policy or making anybody's lives better. They're in it for the money and the pedigree.

  • I call "BULLSHIT!!!"

    If Bernie believed in the Democrats, he would not have made such staunch speech for independent parties before he ran…

    …I don't know what he and his team are doing, but I call bullshit… I call HYPOCRISY!!

  • You know what would be funny, Trump banning super delegates with an executive order. It would really cripple the corrupt side of the Democratic party.

  • Uh …… you do comprehend that it was WEAVER that devised the "super delegate" system that the party has been using since 1982 …. right? Right? Gawd you're an idiot.

  • The other side of the duopoly coin—these self-serving careerist DNC hacks for Wall Street. To hell with all of them and their treasonous puppet shows.

  • The Humanist Report Democrats love Democracy because Democracy is Mob Rule, everyone knows that, especially Democrats. You're not going to gain seats anymore, if anything, expect more losses. We're working very hard to take the Democrats charter away, come the 2020, hopefully there will be no more Democrats, that is our goal now.

  • Bernie's still the brightest light in the DemParty–and probably the hardest worker too. Dems can forget it if they give
    us another corp hack.
    As far as I'm concerned Elizabeth had very poor judgement last election–when she could have
    been instrumental on behalf of the people by supporting Sanders. Bernie 2020 and grateful for the opportunity!
    But let's work w i t h him till then! Victory starts NOW– with words that are part of the solution, not the problems.
    Ea. time I get focused on a problem I yank my attn. to: "What positive action can I do now– to elect true progressives?" Or to prepare myself
    to be more effective in representing Bernie and all that he stands for? (D.emocracy f.or A.merica—which supported Bernie last time–has a quick training). All local elections are national now thru DFA or Bernie. That's how we're getting Progressives in
    and this is the time!

  • If the democrats CARED about fairness, and voting, they would:
    1. BE TRANSPARENT(SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY VOTE, KNOWINGLY)
    2. TELL THE TRUTH(SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY VOTE, KNOWINGLY)
    3. NOT BRAINWASH KIDS(SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY VOTE, KNOWINGLY)
    4. EXPRESS IMPARTIALITY(SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY VOTE, KNOWINGLY)
    5. HAVE THE MEDIA BE IMPARTIAL(SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY VOTE, KNOWINGLY)
    6. PROTECT THE BORDER(SO VOTES AREN'T DILUTED)
    7. HAVE VOTER ID AND REGISTRATION TO LIMIT VOTES(SO VOTES AREN'T DILUTED)
    8. NOT MILK DISASTERS(SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY VOTE, KNOWINGLY)
    9. NOT ACCEPT BRIBES(SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY VOTE, KNOWINGLY)
    10. NOT HAVE UNIONS BE POLITICAL(SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY VOTE, KNOWINGLY)
    11. BE HONEST ABOUT THEIR POSITIONS(SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY VOTE, KNOWINGLY)
    12. NOT DRIVE PEOPLE TO THE POLLS, PROVIDE TRANSLATORS, ETC…… (SO VOTES AREN'T DILUTED)
    13. NOT GIVE BRIBES.(SO VOTES AREN'T DILUTED)
    14. LIMIT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION(SO VOTES AREN'T DILUTED)
    15. SEAT PEOPLE THE PUBLIC VOTED FOR(TO MAKE VOTES COUNT)
    16. NOT TRY TO BYPASS THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.
    17. FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION.

    And yet, they do the OPPOSITE!

    BTW ALL PARTIES should have the SAME electoral system, with ALL delegates having the same placement(So NO superdelegates)! And the regions should be laid out mainly according to a valid industrial makeup, and NOT according to the political leaning of the party. And only citizens that aren't bribed, and aren't criminals should be able to vote. And 18 isn't some magic age! They should allow you to vote maybe around 25 after you had gainful employment, and some real life experience.

    BTW It is interesting that the democrats talk about how companies shouldn't be able to finance anything for votes, but they will run cheesy lotterys, with gifts like a chance to sit next to JAYZ, and they will have huge war chests to finance their own party.

    And they are AGAINST the NRA(A lobbyist group fighting for the 2nd amendment). That is IT, they aren't lobbying for anything else! And yet the democrats allow, support, and CONDONE, UNIONS to exist AND to OVERRIDE their members positions by coercing them to vote democrat, and financing democrat causes!

  • Not just superdelegates. What about the secret pact between DNC and Hillary funneling money during the primaries to Hillary? What about DNC publicly stating they were neutral while secretly helping Hillary and slamming Bernie? The Democratic Party is horribly corrupt. We need to keep exposing them for who they truly are.

  • Fuck Bernie,I want my money back you quitter.THE DNC IS DEAD…Break it up and start all over again!.To think JFK's memory is being soiled by these scum guppies.

  • I will have no problem roasting marshmallows over the fire again if/when they screw Bernie out of the nod. I will vote Jill Stein again before Harris, Booker, or whatever Establishment Dem gets my vote

  • They should do that with the electoral votes TOO!!! they are no longer needed as we no longer have 13 states an odd number, we have 50 states.. remove ELECTORAL VOTING!! 2020

  • Democrats been fighting to protect democracy? Lmfao 12 seconds in and you're already wrong🤣. DNC colluded with the media,was exposed by wikileaks and they're suing to keep it under the rug. Not even going to finish this clip

  • the only way they would sign is if they get dragged kicking and screaming via threats to their bottom line aka a slash in their fundraising

  • He should run as an independent if they don’t eliminate superdelegates, that will surely take enough votes from the Democratic Party to forget winning the presidency. Who knows he still wins, but he should not be fooled twice by the DNC.

  • Im sure they care about democracy (at least a little bit). They just happen to care more (a lot more) about maintaining their power, corporate money, etc.

  • political parties are NOT DEMOCRACY. Democrats can USE THE METHOD AS THEY SEE FIT TO ELECT THEIR REPRESENTATIVE. In other words, the Democrat Party can go directly and pick a random person to be their chosen one. This is why they have SUPER DELEGATES because this is their method of pick; therefore, is democratic. I dont like it, but is the method of picking represnetatives chosen. Create your OWN POLITICAL PARTY and try to defeat the Democrats. Mike Figuredo, you really dont understand politics at all, and your arguments are based on feelings instead of logic and reasoning.

  • Look up democracy , we're all slaves to a system which the Dems have sold out to…why…the Dems only care about money,look at Congress Dems very rich from bribes, a fact

  • Super delegates are the only way that the democrats can legally cheat on primaries not that that is the only way they cheat.

  • I totally agree with you. However, I have a problem with you calling our elections a democracy. The reason why it bothers me is because our system of government is not a democracy. It is a REPUBLIC. If our system of government was DEMOCRACY there will not be things like ELECTORATE COLLEGE, SUPER DELEGATES, or DELEGATES. These people DOES NOT NECESSARY HAVE TO VOTE THE WAY THE PEOPLE VOTE. HENCE, THEY ARE UNDERMINDING THE PEOPLES' VOTE. THINGS LIKE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE CRUSH THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. SO PLEASE, STOP CALLING OUR SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT A DEMOCRACY BECAUSE EVEN IF THE ELECTION WERE FAIR IT STILL WOULD NOT BE DEMOCRACY. STOP LYING!!!!!!

  • Get a clue. The absolute LAST thing Bernie "Putin gave me 10 million bucks!" Sanders has EVER cared about is Democracy. HE IS A COMMUNIST WHO IS ONLY "POPULAR" IN VERMONT.

  • The worst part about people like Elaine Kamarck, is she thinks she is fighting trumpets but she is helping them.
    1. Rigging the primary gave Trump an opponent who was already politically damaged thus easier to attack.
    2. Rigging the primary help Trump's 'drain the swamp', 'lock her up' and 'crooked Hilary' messaging
    3. HRC was running away from her record, thus making it hard to challenge Trump on issues. Trump had no record of service just public statements, so HRC looked more inconsistent. Bernie would not have had that problem.
    4. Angry voters who view the system/rules as rigged gladly voted for someone who uses Trump's Mussolini-esc style of rhetoric.

    🙃Way to "Make America Great Again", Elaine🙃

  • If Bernie cared about democracy why did he sell out to Hillary Clinton? The FBI is still waiting to look at the DNC servers as well. So much for caring about democracy…

  • to cover-up ! & We, all Thieve's, Crook's & Bad Guy's that why you don't see us "Government" coming out against Hillary !
    As all Level of Government – is Thieving from the Tax's Player !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bernie "I took my honeymoon in Moscow" Sanders is a communist masquerading as a social Democrat that buys his vote from clueless young puppets with promises that he can't keep. He's accomplished next to nothing his entire career except bleeding the taxpayer. He's a real champion of the poor living in his mansion, located about twenty five miles from the nearest minority. His wife is a criminal and so is he. He just knows how to cover his tracks.

  • Sure glad Bernie came along. He is dividing the Democrats and pulling them to the left. Then with Trump picking up the displaced, the Democrats are becoming a regional party and becoming irrevelant on a national scale.

  • How can Bernie say this? Bernie didn't comfront HRC when she cheated!!!! Can't stand this. Bernie is a sell out.
