I think these developments help the public see much more clearly something that conservatives have been saying about the Democrat party for years: It is thoroughly unprincipled and utterly corrupt. It is amazing to me that so many of the supposedly bright people around the mainstream Democrat party did nothing to maintain an attitude and reality of impartiality during the primary season even though Hillary ended up buying control of the operations of the DNC with her gift of $10 million to pay down its debts.
Personally, I liked Bernie Sanders more that I liked Hillary. He seems like a fundamentally fair man. Hillary, however, always appeared to me as an evil person who would do anything, including bending and breaking the rules just to win the presidency. Hillary represents the globalist elite that don’t give a damn about the interests of the white working class.
Ultimately, this revelation from Donna Brazile will take away from the Democrat party one of its most cherished talking points, the suggestion that it is purer and more honest and more fair than the Republican party. It also takes away the argument that the Democrats will - if given real power - exercise that power in a fair, lawful, ethical manner. Too many mainstream Democrats participated in this charade. I don’t see how the voters ever trust them again.
I expect that moderate and swing voters will see that allowing the Democrats to hold power would only give them the opportunity to do the same cynical power ploys with the full capacity of the federal government that they now do within their own party. If you cannot operate your own party lawfully and ethically, how can the voters expect you to operate our national government lawfully and ethically?
All in all, this latest revelation should give many in the white working class (particularly young men and women) the satisfaction that they made the right choice in voting to stop Hillary and her extremely cynical supporters and campaign workers. It would have been much better to write in Bernie Sanders than to tolerate this sort of unbelievable, over-the-top, rigging of the Democrat primary.John C.
