Democratic National Committee's dereliction of duty

DNC Staffer Screams At Donna Brazile For Helping Elect Donald Trump
Democrats’ nerves are raw in Washington after Tuesday’s stunning loss.

WASHINGTON ― On Thursday, Democratic Party officials held their first staff meeting since Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss to Donald Trump in the presidential race. It didn’t go well.

Donna Brazile, the interim leader of the Democratic National Committee, was giving what one attendee described as “a rip-roaring speech” to about 150 employees, about the need to have hope for wins going forward, when a staffer identified only as Zach stood up with a question.

“Why should we trust you as chair to lead us through this?” he asked, according to two people in the room. “You backed a flawed candidate, and your friend [former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz] plotted through this to support your own gain and yourself.” 

Some DNC staffers started to boo and some told him to sit down.  Brazil began to answer, but Zach had more to say.

“You are part of the problem,” he continued, blaming Brazile for clearing the path for Trump’s victory by siding with Clinton early on. “You and your friends will die of old age and I’m going to die from climate change. You and your friends let this happen, which is going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy.”

Zach gathered his things and began to walk out. When Brazile called after him, asking where he was going, he told her to go outside and “tell people there” why she should be leading the party.

Two DNC staffers confirmed the exchange.

Asked for comment, Brazile said in an email, “As you can imagine, the individual involved is a member of the staff and I personally do not wish to discuss our internal meetings.”

A DNC spokesman did not respond to a request for comment. …

Refused to comment.  How typical.  Worthless, but typical.  

Ms. Brazile this is why we have zero confidence in you or the cronies you're surrounded with.  You people still seem not to grasp what you have done to America and it's future wellbeing.

As for Zach and those protesters who were taking to the streets please keep in mind temper tantrums are great for venting and helping yourself feel a little better, but unless you have reason and strategy behind your venting all you’re doing is releasing hot air.

We’re seeing how the current DNC is handling all this:  “Lets all calm down, look on the bright side and pretend nothing horrendously and grievously damaging has just gone down for all the citizens of the United States of America, even those poor foolish struggling American’s who were tricked into believing the con-artist is their savior."

Has anything been learned by the DNC?  

Apparently not.  At least there is zero public indication that they are doing anything but rolling over.  

It appears the old guard is all too ready to accept the thrashing they just received.  Basically FBI Director Comey lied to the American people about Trump’s extensive and cozy ties to Russia is appalling and unacceptable, particularly since the FBI Director went out of his way to reinvigorate the mostly fabricated and certainly way the hell over-blown Clinton email scandal - all the while keeping Trump’s cozy connections with our national enemy quiet, which American certainly had a right to learn about.

Where is the DNC's moral, democratic indignation at being hustled like this?

Has the DNC made use of it’s extensive money begging network for something constructive such as informing grassroots supporters and to encourage them to become vocal and complain about the American travesty that just went down?  

Will the Democratic National Committee ever grow up and develop the cohones needed to battle this utterly ruthless and amoral Alt-right movement?  

Will the Democratic rank and file stand up and demand changes within the DNC and strive for getting actual political warriors into those complacent offices?

Republican John Kasich, Governor of Ohio, released an ad right before the election that has particular relevance now that America has allowed itself to be hustled into electing this man.
Please listen to what Col. Tom Moe, US Air Force, Vietnam POW, has to share.

If this concerns you, please take the time to complain to the appropriate officials.
