Democratic Party rescinds support for democracy, claims Hillary must be president because that's what the people in charge want
by J. D. Heyes
(NaturalNews) It's official: the Democratic Party has shed any political reference to its very name. The party might as well rename itself the "Dictator Party."
As reported by the Daily Mail Online, the party's female hierarchy has decided that regardless of who is running for the party's 2016 presidential nomination, it is Hillary Clinton's for the taking.
The paper noted:
The Democratic National Committee is "clearing a path" for Hillary Clinton to be its presidential nominee because its upper power echelons are populated with women, according to a female committee member who was in Las Vegas for [the first Democratic] primary debate.
Democracy, it seems, is dead in the democracy party.
Speaking on condition of anonymity because speaking on record requires courage and conviction, the female told the UK publication that the party was already in the tank for Clinton and that the women at the top had decided so "early on."
The committeewoman is actually supporting one of Clinton's rivals for the nomination, so she decided to speak out (just not on the record) because she believes the former secretary of state, U.S. senator and First Lady is receiving unfair favoritism from the party's female-dominated leadership.
No "trial by fire"Clinton herself has made no bones about becoming the first woman president, and "the party's female leaders really want to make a woman the next president," said the committeewoman, who proceeded to name a short list of women she says are the "real power" in the Democratic National Committee.
"I haven't heard anyone say we should make Hillary undergo a trial by fire," she added. "To the contrary, the women in charge seem eager, more and more, to have her skate into the general [election].
"I have nothing against women in politics," she continued. "But it's not healthy for the party if we get behind a woman because she's a woman, and risk having her implode after she's nominated because she isn't tested enough now."
Among the nine elected leaders of the DNC, five of them are women, including chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida. Women also comprise a majority of vice chairs within the DNC.
Before Wasserman Schultz assumed the top post at the DNC, she campaigned enthusiastically for Clinton during her 2008 bid for the party's nomination, which eventually went to then-Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois.
DNC officials flatly denied that the party was already aligned behind Clinton. Holly Shulman, press secretary for the DNC, told the Daily Mail Online emphatically, "The DNC runs an impartial primary process, period."
The paper further noted:
In 2007 and 2008 the Democratic Party's presidential primary candidates endured a grueling schedule of 27 debates. Hillary Clinton was the only candidate to participate in all of them, and lost the nomination to then-Illinois senator Barack Obama.
This time around, the DNC has sanctioned just six such events. Offering more might have the effect of giving an indecisive Vice President Joe Biden a broader opportunity to jump into the race, saddling Clinton with a formidable challenger.
A lot at stakeClinton clearly believes she is due this nomination simply because she might feel she was essentially cheated out of the nomination in 2008.
Shulman said that in addition to the six DNC-sanctioned presidential debates, there will be four "outside" forums where the entire field of candidates will likely deliver prepared remarks individually rather than head-to-head. There are two in Iowa and one each in New Hampshire and South Carolina.
"Our debate in Nevada and our upcoming debates and forums will showcase all of our candidates' visions to move America forward," Shulman said.
"There's a lot at stake. The last time a Republican left office our economy was losing 750,000 jobs a month, countless homes were being foreclosed and too many families were being devastated.
"These debates and forums are an opportunity for our candidates to introduce themselves and their vision to build on where we are now after 67 straight months of job growth," she continued.
