Hat tip The Intercept
The whole thing was rigged.
"It might may 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."
For all the talk about the RNC and Republican establishment trying to submarine Donald Trump's campaign for the nomination, they stood aside and recognized the winner. Donald Trump is their nominee. The real rigged system was over at the DNC.
Now world-wide rascal, Wikileaks, has released almost 20,000 emails from within the DNC that reveals they were working to submarine Bernie Sanders' quest for the nomination in favor of Hillary Clinton. Worse yet, one DNC official, Brad Marshall, suggested going after Sanders' religious background. Sanders comes from a Jewish background, but Marshall implied he was an atheist. Either way, Marshall suggested, that may not play well in places like Kentucky and West Virginia.
This is the same issue as the "plantation" idea that African-American voters are taken for granted because they will always vote Democratic. Here you have liberal Jewish voters who for years have voted overwhelmingly for the Democrats. Many are starting to question why.
Say what you will about Trump and the Republican field he faced. The Republicans put out 17 candidates, many of whom I feel would have made a fine candidate and president. Am I happy that Trump prevailed? No, but he won it fair and square largely because the conservative voters feel betrayed by the Republican establishment. They were right. They have been betrayed..
Then you have the Democrats and their corrupt standard bearer, Hillary Clinton, who had almost 500 super delegates in her column from the start of the campaign season.
So I ask you Sanders supporters: How do you feel now?
I ask you Jewish voters who always vote for Democrats: How do you feel now?
Can you feel the corruption in your party? Can you smell it? Are you really going to wipe the spittle off your faces and march lock step into the polls and vote for this corrupt, venal, vain-glorious grifter?
I keep waiting for the straw that broke the camel's back. It has been along wait. Is this it? I doubt it.
