Like most big organizations, sometimes someone can come in and take control and sink it before you can stop it. We are watching that happen to the Republican party right now. In this Presidential election cycle, we have seen numerous front runners, 17 people total and one of the all time "strangest" election phenomenons ever in Donald Trump.
People, especially people in the party, thought that Trump running for President was just a way to feed his ego and he would get bored eventually and go back to his life and start working on his fourth wife. Then something happened, Mr. Trump rose in the polls and started winning primaries handily.
While Donald Trump has done many outrageous, misogynistic and racist things, the GOP is panicking because he is winning and he is NOT part of the establishment!!
That scares everyone involved. If Donald Trump were to actually win the election(forgetting the pure devastation to our Country), but in the Republican party the people who are used to running the show would not be invited to the table. That is unacceptable for the Michael Grebe's, Sheldon Adelsons, Karl Roves, Koch Brother of the party. They know that they give enough money to the pure ambition politicians like Scott Walker/Ted Cruz, that they will do whatever they are told. Donald Trump wont take orders and then brag about openly defying party directives. Reince and the boys are scared.
When they get scared or things get out of hand, they have a plan. They use Frank Luntzs focus tested lines and hand them out to their minions and give their right wing media echo chamber marching orders.
The GOP plan to try and take Trump down, is blame everyone on the liberals(I know they do this with everything, I never claimed they were genius). For example is Grebe's gopher, Christian Schneider.
But Republicans are likely getting a little push on their road to obsolescence. There's evidence Democrats may be showing up to vote for Trump, which would significantly loosen up the ballot box for Clinton in November. If you're a Democrat who likes both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, you can pick one, or, in states with open primaries, you can cross over and vote for a Republican who will guarantee the election of either Democrat. It's not that hard of a choice.
This is perhaps why turnout records are being broken in state after state that is holding Republican primaries — because non-Republicans are showing up to stuff the ballot box for Trump. On March 1, Alabama, Oklahoma, Vermont, Virginia, Massachusetts, Georgia and Tennessee saw an astonishing 52% increase in turnout over 2008. At the same time, voters in Democratic primaries in those states dropped by 20% in the same time. Where are all those Democrat voters going? I have a guess.
The problem with his theory(beyond being ridiculous as usual) is events like this happen regularly at Donald Trump rallies.
Nothing says a room Is full of liberals, like a bunch of white men shoving and spitting at a young black woman. Fortunately, there ARE people in media who actually do some research and to whom facts actually matter.
Shaun King was rightfully upset about this video and did some research on who was doing the shoving.
No surprise what he found out!
What a group of intelligent nice men. Does anyone anywhere think these guys would be voting for Bernie???
I guess anything they can do without taking actual responsibility for the Monster they have created.
It is impossible to fix a problem when you can not recognize it!
Since Christian Schneider is propagandist who is not real interested in research or facts, I feel the need to help the poor guy out!
Hey Christian lets compare and contrast a GOP/Democrat rally!
Here is the GOP:
Here is a Democratic rally:
I know they are not the brightest bulbs on the tree, but I always find it hilarious when "Tea Party Patriots" whine about people protesting. The irony is too thick!
PS: ICYMI, it is not just the Donald that thinks its cool to have his supporters beat up protesters!
America - We HAVE to do better!!!
