The battle lines are growing deeper in the war of words between Bernie Sanders and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The independent Socialist senator from Vermont says that if he becomes president, he will fire Schultz as the DNC chairperson. Sanders is now also publicly supporting Schultz′s Democratic primary opponent, Tim Canova in Florida′s 23rd Congressional District. The fight between Sanders and Schultz has been brewing since last summer when the Democratic National Committee took a number of steps to benefit the campaign of Crooked Hillary Rodham Clinton. These steps include limiting televised debates to just a handful, and scheduling them to be seen on weekend nights when TV viewership is low.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz maintains that she is neutral in the 2016 Democratic presidential race. But this is just another of the many lies Schultz has told over her long career in politics. There is no doubt that she favors Heartless Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. The relationship between the DNC and the Clinton campaign has been extremely cozy. Months ago, the Sanders campaign got into a scuffle with the DNC over access to voter registration lists. Back in the Iowa Caucus, the DNC pressured the Iowa State Democratic Party to refrain from using any sort of paper ballots to ensure a Clinton victory. Somehow, Crooked Hillary even managed to win multiple coin tosses in Iowan districts where the vote was dead even.
That the Democratic Party is corrupt goes without saying. But this year stands out as one for exceptional rules bending. Even Van Jones is disheartened by the actions of the DNC under Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The former Barack Obama Green Energy Czar even wished publicly on CNN that he′d rather have Reince Priebus running the DNC. Some critics of Priebus claim that he has been pro-Trump, while, in fact, Priebus has acted as neutral as possible to hold the GOP together as 17 candidates fought amongst themselves. Schultz has only had two candidates to really deal with and the DNC is now literally split in two.
With only a couple of weeks left before the primary season is completed, there is no sign of the conflict between Bernie Sanders and Debbie Wasserman Schultz ending soon. This war may not get resolved until the national convention in Philadelphia at the end of July. The DNC convention may be an ugly one after seeing what happened in the Nevada State Democratic Convention two weekends ago. Several pro-Sanders groups have already filed for permits in Philadelphia to hold large rallies. One may have over 30,000 people. Sanders, himself, says that the convention may get ″messy″. Just as in Chicago back in 1968, the 2016 Democratic convention may turn out to be one, long riot.
