An Open Letter to the Clinton Campaign and the DNC

You say you want unity. You want Bernie’s supporters to get on board with Hillary Clinton and support her campaign in order to keep a madman out of the White House. Believe me – any true supporter of Bernie Sanders does NOT want to see Donald Trump in the White House.

I have news for you. Until you deal with the WikiLeaks issue, and acknowledge the corruption within the DNC, there will be no Unity.

Bernie supporters feel cheated – and rightly so. The emails released by WikiLeaks show there was CLEAR BIAS from DNC officials from the VERY BEGINNING of the primary. The DNC is pledged to remain Neutral in primaries. To support all candidates equally. To oversee a fair primary process. The DNC failed to do their job. The DNC colluded with Clinton Campaign staff, the media, and even SuperPACs to undermine Bernie’s campaign, and help Hillary Clinton. If DNC officials wanted to support one Democratic candidate over another in the primary, they should’ve resigned, just like Tulsi Gabbard did when she wanted to support Bernie. That is the ethical thing to do.

Did the collusion proven by the WikiLeaks tip the scales enough that it would’ve made a difference in the outcome of the primary? Maybe. Maybe not. We’ll never know. I honestly believe that what’s been released so far is only the tip of the iceberg. If the DNC wants unity, they must acknowledge the problem, and take steps to deal with it. They must APOLOGIZE to Bernie Sanders and his supporters. They must fire all DNC officials who were shown to have been biased during the primary. Hillary Clinton must disavow the bias and corruption, and vow to do whatever she can to fix it going forward.

So far, they have done NONE of those things. They have acted like it’s “no big deal”, and blamed Russia. They are trying their hardest to sweep it under the rug.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz was forced to resign in shame, and hours later, Hillary Clinton announced that DWS would be given a position in her campaign. That was a horrible move. For Hillary Clinton to give the person who was primarily responsible for the corruption any position – honorary or not – said to Bernie supporters “Screw you. I don’t care that they cheated on my behalf”.

To call for unity without acknowledging the problem that exists within the DNC is the same as stealing a car, then asking the person you stole it from for gas money.

Bernie Sanders supporters are defecting to Jill Stein, the Green Party’s presumptive nominee in DROVES because the DNC refuses to acknowledge and deal with this problem. Will they get the message before it’s too late, or will they continue to look down their nose at the Bernie supporters who refuse to unite behind corruption? Will they continue to silence discourse, or will they actually listen to the concerns of Bernie’s supporters? Will they continue to try to bully Bernie’s supporters into falling in line using fear tactics, name calling and condescension? If they continue down the path they are currently on, they will be solely responsible when Donald Trump becomes president in November.

This campaign is going to get ugly. Donald Trump is a bully, and his tactics are VERY effective. Just ask the other 16 Republican candidates. Donald Trump should not be underestimated. Hillary Clinton is going to need ALL of us on board in this fight. Bernie’s supporters are the most passionate, hard-working, and energetic Democrats and Independents in the country. If Hillary Clinton wants to tap into that passion and energy, she needs to acknowledge the pain and disappointment, and vow to fix the process so that it’s fair next time around. So far, she has not.

Buckle up. It’s going to be a Bumpy ride.

  1. I don’t care what Hillary does to try to win us over at this point. I’m still never voting for her because she is an awful candidate who lied and cheated her way to the top. Other than that, this article is spot on. #JillNotHill

    1. It is completely reasonable, but there is nothing reasonable about using fear as a tactic to get people in line. The masses of voters are asleep, they always are. It is easier to buy the propaganda narrative than it is to think for one’s self. I am scared for my country. The Democrats cannot see that they are marching toward their own doom, and the Republicans have simply lost it.

  2. Jay, you are not alone in this.
    From the beginning I tried to converse with old friends and even relatives about the campaign, about Bernie Sanders. I was so excited about his candidacy. In a time when politicians are not held in very high esteem, Bernie was a shining light. I probably should have known better because I’ve been in this position before, but I didn’t. The backlash was nasty to say the least.
    You have no reason to question what you wrote. It is right on target. Your comments are measured and to the point.

  3. Thank you all so much for your support. I posted this article on Daily KOS earlier – and I was met with vitriol, hatred, and condescension. They called anyone who’s calling out the corruption the “Putin Cheer Section”. Really. Thank you all… Glad to know I’m not alone.

    1. I had to quit reading the Daily Kos back in March, when they were starting their “It’s all over for Bernie, folks!” campaign a month into primary voting. The Hillary pressure over there is incredible, by which I mean I couldn’t believe it. The vast majority are blue dog Dems, so don’t let them get you down.

  4. Please give up on posting anything on DK DK has officially endorsed Clinton They are ALL IN for her They have been hateful on there to Berners for months Now they are attacking Jill Stein There is no rational open minded audience left there Share your post anywhere else but NOT on Daily Kos

  5. What good would an insincere apology do? Hillary might say anything that she thinks would get more votes, but it’s clear that she intends to continue on her merry neoliberal corporatist way. Trying to change that is a waste of time and energy. Work on other approaches to the change we need.

    1. Right, it’s like the DNC staffer who apologized to his colleagues if he embarrassed them in one of the hacked emails, instead of apologizing to whom he ought to.

  6. Jay, I’m a Bernie supporter who had given my support to Hillary after she won the primary. Obviously the emails gave me pause, but I didn’t see anything in them that implicated Hillary–just that some DNC staffers (and DWS) were biased toward her. Can you post a link to the emails that support your claim that “The DNC colluded with Clinton Campaign staff, the media, and even SuperPACs”? Also, you said the DNC needs to apologize to Bernie and his supporters–well, they already did that. http://nypost.com/2016/07/25/dnc-apologies-to-bernie-sanders-and-supporters-for-inexcusable-remarks/

  7. The Clinton regime has shown utter disdain for voters. Give me one GOOD reason to vote for her. I’m not talking about scare tactics, which are a joke. I’m talking about what she’s done or will do, and why I should believe someone whose lies are legendary. At this point I don’t have any more faith in her than I do in Trump. Seriously – how many million people are in the US, and the DNC is determined to foist this on us and pretend its graft and election fixing don’t matter?

    I suspect Billary Clinton will be declared the winner in the November vote, but only because we already know the elections are fixed. If the DNC will fix the primary, it’ll fix the general, too.
