Rigged election? What about the many Hispanics who voted for Sanders
Back in the primaries, I took an interest in the different sites about Latinos supporting Senator Sanders. I recall stories about a generational divide in many Hispanic Democrat homes between Sanders and Clinton.
In the end, Clinton got more votes but the Sanders effort exceeded expectations. It was interesting to see that they had the same views of Mrs. Clinton than we did.
In the most recent Wikileaks, we’ve learned a few things about how the inner Clinton team thinks. We’ve also learned that Senator Sanders never had much of a chance.
This is a sample of what they thought of the Sanders supporters and others:
Long before Hillary Clinton called millions of Americans a “basket of deplorables,” her top campaign advisers and liberal allies openly mocked Catholics, Southerners, and a host of other groups, according to newly released emails that offer a stunning window into the vitriol inside the Clinton world less than a month before Election Day.
The emails, published by WikiLeaks after a hack of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s private account, also show Clinton campaign officials and Democratic leaders disparaging supporters of Sen. Bernard Sanders as “self-righteous” whiners, calling Hispanic party leaders such as Bill Richardson “needy Latinos,” labeling CNN anchor Jake Tapper “a d—k” and even lambasting longtime Clinton ally Sidney Blumenthal.
The sheer number of insults in the email trove has left the Clinton campaign, along with outside organizations such as the Center for American Progress that were routinely involved in the brutal bad-mouthing, unable or unwilling to respond. Instead, they have blamed the hack on Russia and have refused to even confirm that the emails are genuine, though they also haven’t denied their authenticity.
Wonder what all of those “self-righteous whiners” or “needy Latinos” who voted for Sanders feel about that?
Many of them are young Latinos who turned out in the primary. Wonder how they will react when they learn that the primary was a sham? In other words, Senator Sanders never had a chance and all of those young Latinos were used by a party with a predetermined nominee.
It would be nice if Univision or Telemundo devoted a segment to these Latino victims of Democrat corruption. I agree that Trump said some stupid things about Mexicans but the Democrats cheated Latino voters in the primaries.
