From the sound of it the result was being pushed from pretty much the starting gate. Some of the conversations question his religion, others were saying his campaign was in shambles when it was doing just fine, they'd push for articles to praise Clinton and downplay Sanders on political sites and on MSNBC.
I mean, it wasn't like this was random people doing this. It was the top tiers of the DNC doing it. It's kind of mind boggling to me that these same people have been badmouthing Trump over this and that, while they're saying and doing all this to Sanders behind everyone's backs. Hell at this point I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually come across conversations between the DNC and the DoJ.
It also irks me like crazy how a fair share of news networks aren't saying much at all about this and it's literally because it happened on the Democrat's side of the fence. I mean, seriously, if this happened on the Republican side, everyone would be having a 24/7 field day with this shit.
I don't like any
of this shit, which is surely not a surprise. I just figured it was already going on, so I'm not freaking out about the leak happening. Even considering the use of religion in general against him is downright evil as far as I'm considered, and that shit is stuff that should have been left to the past.
What a person believes or doesn't believes religiously is their own business unless they take it to the extreme that it influences their behavior significantly in office. See quite a few state and national congressmen and women for examples of that. Otherwise? leave 'em the fuck alone. If they believe in a religion or don't I don't care, unless it's a goddamned cult like Scientology or some other cult I am unaware of(When you have around 7 billion people on a planet, there's gonna be a shit ton of cults).
Luckily, one of the masterminds behind this shit got tossed. Normally, heads of the DNC and RNC resign shortly before or after election(To make way for the new political generation, you see), but being tossed before the convention even happens is highly, highly unusual. Bernie bitched about this on TV and goddammit, he was right to.
I just don't think he could have won regardless. The numbers were against him months before he conceded, all the way back to April. He only conceded this month, for fuck's sakes.
Back to Wikileaks for a moment(Yes I'm ADHDing the fuck out of this post), they've been rather anti-semitic as of late and it's kind of amazing how they decided it was an intelligent move to release donors bank accounts, social security numbers, etc alongside of the documents.
You know, you could make the argument that donors were duped into supporting a bad political machine, but when you release their numbers, which could potentially leads to people have their shit stolen from them, well, you lose your credibility.
So, yeah, this entire thing is a cluster fuck from top to bottom, and it's all bad and nothing good has come of this aside from somebody who was going to resign anyway quitting at most eight months early.
Thanks Wikileaks! Surely what you've done will help people oh wait no it won't.
This isn't like their other big leaks. This didn't reveal people being tortured or monitored. This leak has hurt people. Without the bank accounts and SSNs being released one could make an argument they did a good thing. I'd disagree and call it useless because all it did was say what everygoddamnedbody already knew, but I could see it. I really could have seen why people would agree with what they did.
But with people's financial numbers being outed, who knows how much theft is gonna happen?
