Some Thoughts on the unDemocratic Party Eating Its Own Young
The thought has occurred to me lately that the Democratic Party seems less than grateful to Senator Sanders for the millions of new voters that he has brought, on a silver platter, to an aging and stale party.
We all remember comments about BernieBros and the gals who only follow to where the boys are, and all those young people who need to do some research, and a young Green Peace activist being yelled at with the Presidential-finger-to-be up close in her face. And I'm sure the list could go on and on with more examples of the belittling of the young people who have joined up in droves during this election cycle to participate in the Democratic Party Primary Process.
The video in the tweet above is particularly poignant to me, however, as I look into the eyes and see the profound hurt and bewilderment of this idealistic young man who went forward, in good faith, in his home state of Nevada to practice Democracy, and now finds himself and his fellow Bernie Supporters accused of fomenting violence.
This young man and other young men and women find their idealism betrayed, not only by the undemocratic conduct of the so-called "Democratic" Party, but now by the being subjected to the false accusations tossed out at them from the highest offices in the land: Senator Barbara Boxer, and even the President of the United States.
I thank Justin for producing the video above. This took a tremendous amount of courage. I hope that more young people who were at the NV unDemocratic Party Convention will do the same.
I am very sorry that this is the treatment you received as you went forth to attempt to engage in the democratic process in a nation which so values DEMOCRACY that it seeks to export that system of government to other nations all over the earth.
I shake my head as I wonder why the Democratic Party hates its young voters so much. The Future will come whether the Party Elites like it or not.
To our beloved younger generation: go forward with Courage. And remember that the Future belongs to the younger generation, not to the unDemocratic Party Establishment.
