Forum Post: The DNC is as corrupt as the RNC here's proof:

The party bosses no longer care what elected delegates think, or what the people think. The national political system is dead. We have clearly and visibly crossed the line of a 2 party dictatorship. It's just another data point that we have no voting options left, and as Chris Hedges says "All we have left is revolt", and I would add local elections, and the 10th amendment, or secession. If you didn't believe it before, watch this to demonstrate:

Yes, this is indicative of the parties, and "representative" "democracy" in general,. it only represents the opinions of the brave leaders,. and not the people they claim to speak for. we can and must do better than this farce.

the 2 parties support each other and extinguish all descent

If you ask me it appears to be a very slick campaign designed to discredit both parties.

I don't know why. It would be interesting to track back and see exactly how this process came about - changing the platform last minute.

Who requested the changes, on what basis, what conversations took place.

I watched it before I read your comment and I concur.

It's one slick piece of propaganda.

The announcer lost credibility before he even got started when he used the Limbaughesk descriptive "the Democart Party".

A favorite of right wingers everywhere.

Looks like FLAKESnews tactics have finally filtered down to the local affiliates.

I knew they would.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

yeah it must just be FLAKEnews tactics even though the guy calls Fox News hypocritical for remaining silent on the issue that took place at the RNC.

Also at no point in time does he make references to Limbaugh nor even say "Democart"

What you are doing is dismissing a legitimate topic because it doesn't favor your agenda.

But that's easy to expect from 2 guys on the Obama 2012 campaign.

[-] 0 points by shooz (26719) 1 year ago

That's how some types of propaganda work.

In tune with the larger FLAKESnews, it was an op-ed, built on limited information, posing as important news.

If you didn't hear him say "Democrat party", what else did you miss?

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

I say Democrat Party and so does my mother.... and she's a die hard Obama supporter.

The guy also said "the Republican Party."

A ton of people say Democrat Party. How is that a Rush Limbaugh thing?

I think you're being facetious

[-] 0 points by shooz (26719) 1 year ago

Not at all.

It never ceases to amaze me how well propaganda works and all the ways it finds to penetrate any given "market".

Did you know that that is one of the few things America is still #1 at?

Market penetration.

Okay dude.

[-] 0 points by shooz (26719) 1 year ago

Okie dokie dood.

Didn't want to actually read that did you?

Here's another one for you.

Those that think they are immune to propaganda, are actually the ones most likely to be susceptible.

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

Yeah..................

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20605) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

I wonder if there is unadulterated footage of that portion of the event.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26719) 1 year ago

Or a letter from Ailes, describing what he wants done.

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20605) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

I would like a time line of the decision making process

with all of the various players indicated on it

I'm not sure what we are looking at

Here's a C-Span clip of the DNC vote

my understanding, from CNN or MSNBC probably, is the DNC always had in previous platform the word "God" in the platform, and also some other thing about Israel/Jerusalem is capital of Israel.

things Obama wanted included in the platform, from what I heard said.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20605) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

that is a little different. The amendments to the party platform were presented by one Governor Strickland, an ordained minister . . . and head of the platform committee.

that seems rather interesting.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26719) 1 year ago

Exactly. It's an op-ed posing as news.

Perhaps jumping on Rove's don't vote train?

It's the cheapest form of voter suppression.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20605) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

Did both parties change their platform at the last minute?

Are any questions surrounding these changes legitimate?

That's my question. I'm not certain it's just a cheap hatchet job using film editing software. It could be something a bit more involved. I don't know.

[-] 0 points by shooz (26719) 1 year ago

Or it could be just another bunch of FLAKESnews over edited crap.

In the end, it's a propaganda piece,but what is it's aim?

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20605) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

the aim is clear - on that we totally agree

[-] 0 points by brudlo (-454) 1 year ago

tony villar openly defrauded the democrat delegates. there clearly was not a 2/3 mojority vote. thats why he it did it three times. they were "supposed" to vote to affirm on the first vote. you can see it from the look on tony villars face. he openly and on video decided what the vote was and he disenfranchised the dem delegates. thats why they booed. they knew they what went on.

[-] 0 points by shooz (26719) 1 year ago

That's what the propaganda showed you.

That's all it did, along with it's suggestions.

You do recall that FLAKESnews is nothing, if not notorious for it's less than honest editing.

[-] 0 points by brudlo (-454) 1 year ago

fact is not propaganda. you can view and listen to the video on various sites. do your own search. i watched it on cspan , live.

[-] 0 points by yobstreet (-575) 1 year ago

haha... that is so funny: we all belong to government.

[-] -1 points by brudlo (-454) 1 year ago

that " we all belong to the government" was shown at the DNC.

[-] 1 points by yobstreet (-575) 1 year ago

So I've heard... no longer a nation with a government but a government with a nation: Rome!

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Just more anti dem partisan political campaigning. Feel free to ignore this propaganda.

Many have known this for years.
