Oxymoronic ‘Democratic Party’ Not Just Party Of Fascism But SUPERFascism. And The Superfascists Are Supporting Hillary Clinton

February 27, 2016

You know what an oxymoron is, don’t you?  It’s defined as a figure of speech that juxtaposes elements that appear to be contradictory.  Famous examples are things like “Jumbo shrimp,” “Genuine imitation,” “Act naturally,” “Computer security,” “Childproof.”  And “Democratic Party.”

Maybe a good example of the oxymoronic Democrat Party would be the oxymoron of “Only choice.”  Because that’s the way the shell game of “democracy” operates.

Consider the delegate count between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders as of today and then allow me to explain what the Sam Hell is going on:

Superdelegates Clinton

The funny thing is that Hillary Clinton BARELY won Iowa – on the basis of coin tosses! – and the delegates were awarded proportionately.  Sanders won HUGE in New Hampshire by 20 points.  And Hillary Clinton again squeeked by in Nevada – on the basis of a card draw, no less! – and again the delegates were awarded proportionately.  So the actual delegate count on the basis of THE PEOPLE VOTING stands at 51 for each, as the New York Times admits in an article since the Nevada Caucus dated February 21 (note: the acknowledgment appears way, WAY down the article):

[…] Mrs. Clinton already has a huge lead over Mr. Sanders in support from superdelegates — elected officials and party elders who each count toward the magic number of 2,383. But superdelegates could switch candidates if Mr. Sanders is the overwhelming choice of regular voters.

For now, Mrs. Clinton is focused on building her lead among so-called pledged delegates — those awarded proportionally by congressional districts from primary and caucus results. Mr. Sanders is aiming to score wins in states like Massachusetts and Minnesota while holding Mrs. Clinton to narrow wins elsewhere. Small margins of victory keep delegate allocations roughly even. A New York Times analysis found that Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders are tied in the pledged delegate count, at 51 each […].

The Sanders campaign and Sanders voters have already expressed how unfair it is and how pissed off they are about this blatant “Democratic” fascism:

Sanders supporters revolt against superdelegates
Outraged by the delegate deficit Sanders faces even after his New Hampshire win, the senator’s backers are taking action.

Bernie Sanders lost by a hair in Iowa and won by a landslide in New Hampshire. Yet Hillary Clinton has amassed an enormous 350-delegate advantage over the Vermont senator after just two states.

Outraged by that disconnect – which is fueled by Clinton’s huge advantage with Democratic superdelegates, who are not bound by voting results – Sanders supporters are fighting back.

Pro-Sanders threads on Reddit have been burning up with calls for action, with some supporters even reaching out to superdelegates (who are typically Democratic governors, members of Congress, and top state and national party leaders) to lobby them on the Vermont senator’s behalf. Progressive groups are also taking a stand: There are currently two petition campaigns designed to urge superdelegates to reflect the popular vote, rather than the sentiment of party elites.

In one of them, MoveOn.org activists are targeting undecided and committed Hillary Clinton superdelegates with a clear message: wait until all the votes are counted before throwing support behind a candidate.

The effort, which will begin this week after MoveOn.org polls its supporters to pick which superdelegates to petition first, comes amid growing criticism from Sanders supporters who complain that the game is rigged in the former secretary of state’s favor. […]

So, understand, a “Democratic Party” election is one in which the actual people who vote have absolutely ZERO impact on the election.

They call them “superdelegates,” but what they truly are are “superfascists” from the party of fascism.

A “Democratic Party primary” is a completely rigged game in which the Party apparatus completely controls the outcome.

I’ve been pointing out for YEARS now that the Democratic Party IS the Party of Fascism.  My point was that so-called “Democrats” – these oxymoronic fools who make a grotesque mockery of the very thing they call themselves – are and have been hypocrites to the very cores of their tiny, rabid little roach souls.

To be a “Democrat” today means to have a profound distrust and hostility to the actual will of the American people.  They have no respect for “democracy.”  Rather, they have a militant, rabid religious devotion to GOVERNMENT and the raw, naked exercise of the POWER of government OVER the people.

I take you back to 1 Samuel 8 and what we find out about the nature of expanding human government.  The people had GOD as their King, but God wasn’t enough for them; they wanted a human king to be their Savior and deliver them.  When the prophet Samuel heard this from the people, he was deeply troubled and went to his God.  And God said to Samuel, ” “Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them” (1 Samuel 8:7).

Here’s the full passage from 1 Samuel 8:

6But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. 7And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. 8As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.”

10Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking him for a king. 11He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. 12Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. 15He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. 16Your male and female servants and the best of your cattlec and donkeys he will take for his own use. 17He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.”

19But the people refused to listen to Samuel. “No!” they said. “We want a king over us. 20Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.”

21When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the Lord. 22The Lord answered, “Listen to them and give them a king.”

The people rejected God and wanted massive, unstoppable human government tyranny.  And the “Democratic Party” was born.

Psalm 70:5 declares, “But I am afflicted and needy; Hasten to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay.”

That message has been radically rejected by modern “Democrats.”  No, they have put their faith in the message, “I’m from the Government and I’m here to help…”

That’s what being a “Democrat” means today; it means exalting the power of Government over the American people and even over God Almighty.  If you are a “Democrat,” God is NOT your Savior; Government is your Savior.  You place all of your trust in the power of Government to save you and you will ultimately burn in hell along with the wicked Government you have worshiped and exalted.

Being “Democratic” BY DEFINITION means having no trust whatsoever even in the voters of your own damn PARTY, let alone the nation.  NO!  Your trust is in a group of demon-possessed bureaucrats – THAT’S what “Democrat” actually means, “DEMOnic bureaucrat” – whom you worship as your gods and whom you trust as your Savior and your Lord.  And you trust these depraved human beings not only to run the State that you worship in place of God, but to even appoint (that’s the actual word, rather than “elect”) the leader who will represent the God you worship as your version of the Antichrist until the real one comes and you WORSHIP him just as the Bible declares you wicked people will soon do.

So go “vote,” “Democrat.”  Like it matters to anybody in your damn party, a party whose sole and solitary purpose is to deprive the American people of their liberty and their freedom.

Hillary Clinton Strategy for Remaining in Race Now Obvious

May 21, 2008

If it wasn’t already clear before, Hillary Clinton’s strategy now seems quite obvious.

She is going to avoid bitter personal “mudslinging attacks” that will undermine her own political future along with her rival’s, and instead focus on the issue of her superior general election viability.

She is claiming that she will remain in the race through the bitter end unless the votes and delegates are counted in Florida and Michigan. Rather than presenting herself as the cynical, manipulative, power-hungry, utterly self-centered politician who is determined to stay in the race even if her party burns down around her, Hillary Clinton is presenting herself as the selfless champion of the will of the people. How noble of her!

We see here the schism that too often lies between substance and rhetoric in modern Democratic politics. Normally, Republicans are the ones on the unpopular side of this divide, but here the victim is clearly the more liberal Barack Obama. When Florida and Michigan (seeking to be more ‘relevant’) violated the DNC’s rules by determining to hold their primary earlier, all the Democratic presidential candidates agreed to abide by the DNC’s exlusion of those states’ delegates. But now, regardless of the rules that she personally accepted, Hillary Clinton is claiming that the states’ decision to violate DNC rules has nothing to do with the people of the states that made the decision. They are, in the words of Mongo from Blazing Saddles fame, merely “pawns in game of life.” Obama played by the rules, and is calling for those rules to be followed.

Hillary Clinton gets to throw out the rules that she agreed to accept in what is clearly a self-serving gesture, and take the credit for being the champion of the “victims” in Florida and Michigan. It’s the same play that Democrats relied upon today when they (as the ones who actually caused our current energy crisis by refusing to allow domestic oil production) proceeded to hang the blame on the oil companies and the White House.  On a day like this, it’s frankly fitting that a Democrat would use the same junk rhetoric against her own party.

If Hillary gets Florida and Michigan included, as she demands, she will clearly be able to officially claim that she obtained more of the popular vote than Barack Obama.

And, of course, it is now practically an article of liberal faith – from the 2000 election – that the candidate who wins the popular vote should be president.

Hillary today said, “We believe that the outcome of our elections should be determined by the will of the people. Nothing more. Nothing less. And we believe the popular vote is the truest expression of your will. We believe it today just as we believed it back in 2000 when right here in Florida you learned the hard way what happens when your votes aren’t counted and a candidate with fewer votes is determined the winner.”

Notwithstanding the obvious insult to President Bush, Hillary Clinton’s statement serves to show that the Democratic position is – and has been – that such things as “the rules” shouldn’t matter, and that the process should rather be used in a cynical, self-serving way to attain partisan or personal advantage.

Do you think for a nanosecond that if the roles were reversed, Hillary Clinton would not be demanding that the process both candidates agreed to be followed? For that matter, do you think that if Barack Obama were in Hillary’s shoes, he wouldn’t be demanding the same things that Hillary is demanding now?

Including the delegates from Florida and Michigan will not affect Barack Obama’s lead in the ultimate measure that determines the winner – the delegate count. But it will undermine Obama as the nominee who failed to win the popular vote.

Rather than attempt to chop Obama down with bitter attack ads, Clinton will continue to focus on Obama’s inability to build a coalition capable of winning in November.

Her remaining in the race (oh so selflessly for the sake of those tired, poor huddled masses yearning to have their primary votes counted in Florida and Michigan) will have its own culminative effect on the Obama run, as the fractured Democratic convention bears the same fruit as all the fractured conventions that have occurred before.

Hillary’s plan is to allow Obama to be the latest McGovern-Dukakis-type fiasco, and then loudly trumpet to Democrats, “I told you so.”

She will claim that she was trying to point out Obama’s manifold weaknesses as a candidate for the good of the party, but Democratic leaders refused to listen to her wisdom.

Which will position her – as the wise leader who understood the dynamic all along – to make her own run from a superior political position in 2012.
