Hillary Clinton has a knack for getting rid of competition one way or another. In the case of Bernie Sanders versus the Democratic National Committee, she has used her pull to attempt to eliminate her only real competitor for the Democratic Presidential nomination. If you don’t realize that this is a travesty of justice directly influenced by Clinton, you haven’t been watching her or her husband closely enough over the decades.
The DNC mandates that a candidate get 10 days written notice to fix any issue before the party can restrict access to its voter database. This rush to judgment and action had one single consequence – get Sanders in hot water before the Democratic debate. It worked. Conservatives who believe in freedom, the Constitution, and the American way should be fuming angry and actually supporting Sanders at this time. We can beat up on him all we want if he is able to get the nomination. For now, we have to be on his side for both ethical and practical reasons.
The ethics component is easy to see. He’s being wronged by a corrupt and manipulative Democratic Establishment who has already decided they are stuck with Clinton for this election. As a result, they want her to be protected as much as possible through the nomination process and they want her to be fresh to go after whichever Republican wins that nomination.
As far as practicality, it’s fair to say that Clinton is a weak candidate. The sooner that Sanders can be eliminated, the easier it will be for Clinton to focus on winning the general election. While I would rather go up against Clinton than Sanders, if he can stay in long enough to weaken her, it’s better for the Republican nominee.
For now, let’s put the practical aspect aside. The battle that Sanders is now forced to fight is righteous. There’s a reason that the company hired by the DNC made it so easy to break the rules. If this doesn’t smell like a total setup, nothing does. One staffer gets access to Clinton’s data and suddenly the hammer comes down on the eve of the debate. This has Clinton’s corrupt odor all over it.
It’s not like Sanders hired a hacker to break into the files. The defenses were intentionally left down in order to lure some idiot into the nest. This is a blatant attack against Sanders. This is a clear push for Clinton to wrap up the nomination quickly. One does not have to be a conspiracy theorist to see the entrapment and overly swift judgment being handed down as a result.
Unfortunately, the Clinton plan will likely work. It’s a shame. If the enemy of our enemy is our friend, then Sanders needs our support.
