LAUGHABLE HYPOCRISY: Democrats Cry Foul During Party Election
For the last couple of decades, the debate has raged over voter ID laws.
The Democratic Party constantly fight the idea of having to present a current photo ID upon showing up at a polling place.
The Democrat Party’s official website proudly proclaims:
Democrats have a long and proud history of fighting for voting rights that continues to this day. Organizers and activists have fought and bled for their right to vote.
The right to vote is fundamental — it is the right that protects and expands all other rights. That’s why the Democratic Party has continuously remained dedicated to making it easier and more convenient for Americans of all backgrounds to cast their ballot.
We do this by supporting candidates for state secretary of state and state legislative seats who want to expand voting rights. And we do this by supporting efforts in all 50 states to ensure that every eligible citizen can register and vote, and that each vote is accurately counted.
This work is all the more important in the face of a cynical Republican strategy to make it more difficult to ordinary Americans to vote.
For the astute among you, I’m sure you noticed that whites are missing?
Or are they?
Who are “Citizens age 18-24?” And what about “Citizens?”
Are any of them white? But I digress with logic.
Democrats have been claiming that they are the champions for ‘voting equality’ since Florida 2000. Then, through the rise of the Tea Party until the 2016 Beatdown.
Likewise, the attack dog wing of the Democrat Party, otherwise known as the ACLU, states the following about voter ID laws:
Voter ID laws deprive many voters of their right to vote, reduce participation, and stand in direct opposition to our country’s trend of including more Americans in the democratic process. Many Americans do not have one of the forms of identification states acceptable for voting. These voters are disproportionately low-income, racial and ethnic minorities, the elderly, and people with disabilities. Such voters more frequently have difficulty obtaining ID, because they cannot afford or cannot obtain the underlying documents that are a prerequisite to obtaining government-issued photo ID card.
What about when Democrats cheat?
Ironically, the Progressive-Left often falls silent when the debate turns to Chicago 1960 when the dead cast votes.
And what of the 2004 Washington gubernatorial election when several hundred provisional ballots from King County magically appeared in the river giving the election to Democrat Christine Gregoire; or the 2008 Minnesota US Senate race. Similar shenanigans took place in Washington four years earlier happened again, and a failed SNL writer walked away with the win.
The Santa Cruz Sentinel explains the Democrat in-fighting:
As the bruising contest to lead the California Democratic Party continued Tuesday — nearly three days after the election — the players couldn’t even agree on what to call the scrutiny of ballots now underway.
Kimberly Ellis — a favorite of the pro-Bernie Sanders faction of the party who lost by just 62 votes to party vice-chairman Eric Bauman — called it an “audit.” But a spokesman for the party says it’s a “review,” not an audit, and most definitely not a recount.
The Democrat establishment can call it whatever they want, but there are shenanigans afoot.
And, the Uncle Bernie wing of the California Democrat Party is not going to roll along with it.
Ellis said late Saturday her team has “serious concerns about the vote count” and has talked with a lawyer. She says “this race is not over.” Ellis did not say what made her question the vote count.
She lost by 62 votes out of nearly 3,000 cast to longtime party insider Eric Bauman. The result was a letdown for Ellis supporters who’d been energized by inaccurate reports on social media that she had won the race.
Bauman’s victory on Saturday disappointed activists loyal to Sanders, who stormed local Democratic Party conventions this year to win seats at the convention but came up short in the race for chair.
Ellis disputes the outcome of the results because she claims the votes cast were fraudulent.
San Francisco Chronicle political reporter Carla Marinucci wrote in Politico:
The unprecedented effort to examine the documentation of the disputed state party’s election results was announced by outgoing California Democratic Party chair John Burton at the close of a raucous state Democratic convention this weekend.
Ellis, the former director of Emerge America, a women’s political organization, lost the election by a narrow margin of 62 votes out of 3,000 cast. Her loss immediately set off protests from hundreds of her backers, many of whom charged that there were irregularities that included allowing voters to cast proxy ballots without proper ID.
Some Democratic insiders are already worried the dispute has potential to do long-term damage, creating a rift in the state party as it heads into crucial 2018 elections.
There were people voting the CDP election that didn’t have proper voter ID.
“The issue underscores the complete hypocrisy of the Democrats when it comes to election integrity.
Democrats think voter identification laws are important for their party elections, but don’t think they are good enough for the California voters,” (CRP Chairman Jim) Brulte said in a statement. “It should be clear to the people of California that the Democrats are willing to put the elections of our state officials at risk while protecting their own Party elections.”
John Burton, the outgoing leader of the California Democratic Party, had nothing but F-bombs and sarcasm for the protesters who disrupted the welcome reception of the California Democratic Convention Friday, calling for universal health care and chanting “Hey hey, ho ho, corporate Dems have got to go.”
“That’s really very controversial. Let’s disrupt something for health-care-for-all, I mean that’s really a good f—ing way to get something done,” Burton said, later adding, “There’s some people who have been fighting for that issue before you guys were born. You ought to get on with it.”
At one point he singled out one of the many demonstrators holding a universal-health-care sign. “Put your f—ing sign down man, we’re all for it,” he said. “Jesus Christ.”

With leaders like these, the Democrats dare complain about Trump’s language?
But ah sh*t, its just the new talking points for the DNC.
So, “‘WTF’ Is Going On With The Dems?”
On a recent segment of his show, Tucker Carlson put that question to sports journalist Jason Whitlock to help explain what has caused an 11 million viewership decline at ESPN. His response addressed not just the liberal slant of sports journalism, but the overall radical shift Leftward of modern American Liberalism:
“I think, again, so much of the media has moved left,” Whitlock said. “It applies to ESPN, but it also applies to all the media. Silicon Valley, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram is now in control of the mainstream media. Everyone is catering all of their content to Silicon Valley and San Francisco values.
“That’s far different than the old media which catered everything to New York traditional liberal values. The values in San Francisco, a bit more revolutionary, a bit more progressive, than a traditional New York-based media.”
The Republican Party seems to put the ‘fun’ in dysfunction.
And it’s only been 126 days, so buckle up. The ride is just beginning.
