My 11 Months As A Democrat


I voted first for Bernie Sanders, then for Jill Stein and my personal favorite of all of them, Ajamu Baraka, who I wish had run at the top of the Green ticket.

In my entire life, I have voted as follows: Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton, Ralph Nader, Didn’t vote, Barack Obama, Barack Obama, Bernie/Jill Stein.

Because I have never been either a Democrat or a Republican, over my entire life, I have never encountered any of these so called “party politics” that others see as being a normal part of politics.

The first time I heard Bernie Sanders speak, I went online and found an application to join the Democratic Party, that needed to be mailed in about one year in advance of the primary-simply so I could vote for Bernie in the primary. It might seem silly to you, but I felt…called.

Little did I know, that was the beginning of the nightmare.

Over the course of being a Democrat, roughly 8–12 months of my life, I have never been more appalled, disgusted, abused, insulted, gas-lighted, and revolted by any group of people-ever.

I found that the Democrat Elites inside the party are out of touch, criminal liars who live lives of hypocrisy and corruption. When I attempted to point any of this out, I was told to shut up, that this is a normal part of politics. Can you imagine?

I was told, all politicians are corrupt anyway. This was seen as an acceptable response to corruption. I was called a “Bernie Bro” and told I had no rights, because I wasn’t a real Democrat… and neither was Bernie Sanders. I was told-my vote wasn’t even needed anyway.

I was treated as if I had no value. I was told to trade in my principles, morals and ethics and simply fall in line with someone I saw as an unrepentant criminal sociopath with zero moral fiber- because that’s simply what party-people do.

I watched as Dem after Dem after Dem started to attack Donald Trump for all of the things Dems do. When I started to see and rightfully call out this behavior as the actual definition of hypocrisy itself, I was called racist, sexist, accused of being a “Bernie Bro” a “KKK” Lover, “pro-Hitler”, and worse.

For every single thing Donald Trump is accused of, I can find 10 of those things being done by Dems, who are given a pass. When I have pointed this out, again, I was accused of being the worst member of society, worse than “deplorable”, simply for pointing out that if people are anti-rape about Donald Trump, then they should be anti-rape about Bill Clinton.

The longer you are a Dem, the more it becomes clear that no Dem cares about what any Dem does.

Dems only care about what Republicans do. There is no self-censure, self-critique, policing from within, and no self-awareness from the Dems themselves regarding their own behavior. No pause, no reflection of any kind. None.

After watching Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee openly cheat, rigging Primary after Primary, kneecapping Bernie Sanders, lying openly during interviews, skewing poll after poll by not including millennials, and finally -stealing the money intended for Sanders and down ballot Dem candidates, I could not rescind my Democratic Party membership fast enough.

Once it was made clear to me that liberal Democrats are liars, it became clear to me that liberal media, is also comprised of liars, who tow the party line. During the election, Wikileaks made bulk emails of Dem players available. Inside those emails were email after email after email, about how Dem players and Liberal media decide ahead of time, what the story will be-based on what Dem players decide they want.

Watching the Democrats handle the Wikileaks situation made everything worse. Not only did they lie about the leaks, they also blamed Russia, when this was preposterous and ridiculous on its face.

Watching the Dems squirm and lie to try to prevent people from reading the emails was embarrassing. I personally watched CNN tell America that it would be illegal for them to read the emails and only Morning Joe should tell citizens what to think about them. Obviously this is completely unacceptable to lie to the American people-unless you are a real Democrat, in which case, this is just the basic “m.o.”.

When you are not biased about Democrats or Republicans, it’s pretty easy to see how corrupt both can be, when they think they are justified.

During the Democratic Primary I saw, first-hand, with my naked eye-balls, in real-time- the entire Nevada Caucus, live-streamed on Facebook.

I had several live-streams running and I was keen to see Nina Turner speak. Like most people, I was practically addicted to following the last election. So, I made it a point to see all of Bernie’s rallies on You-tube, as many state caucuses, primaries and related as I could-and I saw many. I personally attended 4 Bernie rallies in person, including Washington Square Park and his Times Square Town Hall and saw Nina Turner speak live 2 times.

Me and my “Bros” in NY.

I watched the entire Nevada Caucus live. Roberta Lange acted in a criminal fashion-enacting openly illegal rule changes, ignoring voice votes and then ending the caucus illegally, running off stage, sicking security on the people, and I personally watched live as Barbara Boxer left the caucus shooting her middle finger at voters as she left. Let me repeat that for you: I saw Barbara Boxer leave the Caucus flipping the bird at voters in her own party.

So, imagine my shock, when the very next day, NPR and Roberta Lange and Barbara Boxer conspired to manufacture a completely made up, fake story to hide their criminal behavior.

They just sat there and lied on camera, without the slightest hesitation, like it was just another day.

The problem with lying: it only works on the people who weren’t there.

Here I am, a brand-new Democrat, watching Roberta Lange and Barbara Boxer and NPR, lie.

Not only did they lie to cover up their own criminal behavior, they lied about how the people in the room reacted. They actually fabricated an entire story from start to finish about how the people in the room were violent, stormed the stage and threw chairs. Bear in mind, anyone can simply watch the live-stream of the caucus to see they were lying.

We all watched the entire caucus live, and when we rightfully attempted to correct these lies, we were again called liars ourselves, called Bernie Bros, misogynists, and worse-by the Dems.

So please track with me, that I was watching criminal and lying behavior, and when I attempted to speak out about this behavior, I was told to shut up and was insulted- by other party members.

At that point, it became clear that the liberal media was lying and that they were in the pocket of the Democratic Party leadership. Here is the problem they created: If news media is lying, they are no longer allowed to be a part of any discussion. If news media is too busy to watch the live stream of a State Caucus to verify what happened, then they are not as informed as I am, in which case, they are useless. Either way, they signed their death warrant.

I no longer watch any news media program whatsoever. I currently boycott all main-stream news media, because they do not meet my ethical and intellectual standards. This includes all printed news media from mainstream sources and all broadcast news.

Now, I inform myself with source documentation: Executive Orders, Presidential Proclamations, court papers, affidavits, arrest warrants, legal testimony, first-hand testimony, one-on-one interviews and from named sources with actual quotes.

You would be surprised how radically this shifts your understanding of what’s really going on.

In the last 4 months, I have not listened to liberal media lie about Trump. Instead, I do personal research into what he’s actually doing, instead of what the liberal media reports him saying.

What I can report, not using any news sources, but using actual reality, is that Trump is beloved and doing a good job. A better than expected job. In order to even comprehend how a liberal/green voter would say this, you’d have to stop listening to liberal media, and actually do real research into actual political happenings in reality-not for show.

99% of the people will not do this, and so you can expect that the majority of people have nothing more to say about Trump other than “cheeto man” and “not my president”, not much else.

They will not realize how good he’s doing, how popular he is, how much of the world actually respects him, or that he’s currently “pre-winning” the 2020 election. Trump is pre winning in 2020 for what he is doing in addition to how much the Democrats are not doing.

The Democrats refuse to address why they lost.

The Democrats have instead decided to embrace a lie, which is their standard modus operandi, as evidenced by their behavior over the election, and shored up with every: “that’s just how it’s done”.

So, now, you have Democrats blaming Russia instead of doing any analysis of their loss.

As long as “Russia” is the convenient excuse, none of what happened in 2016 will ever be addressed. As long as “Russia” is the excuse, I do not exist…

Good luck coasting on the failed strategy of 2016 in 2020.
