Wow.

The HRC group just re-posted the tweet by TYT about the judge's decision tomorrow with regard to the disenfranchised voters and telling people who had their party affiliations switched to go vote by provisional ballot under a title exclaiming "The scum at TYT urge independents to commit vote fraud in NY state today!!" I just don't get it. Is such a post made for entertainment purposes?

1. They're all for closed primaries because

"Democrats are voting for Democrats". Yet they'll gladly accept the results of open primary states (where party membership is not a requirement) like Arkansas, South Carolina, Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, Virginia and Tennessee because they overwhelmingly favored Hillary.

2. Speaking of disenfranchisement

Checking with several sources of would be bernie voters who work in retail, the giants like Walmart and Target are specially scheduling their employees, packing the stores in effect, totally within the entire poll schedule noon to nine at least in upstate. Some faced with that can't or are giving up the difficult/impossible effort to get to their polling place. I would make this a special post but I can't confirm this strange middle of the week staffing on my own and you know how things go just making a local observation like this.

Retail caging? Now why wouldn't the working poor be of concern as possible Hillary voters?

Of course Bernie probably knows the original quote:

"I was not the one to invent lies: they were created in a society divided by class and each of us inherited lies when we were born. It is not by refusing to lie that we will abolish lies: it is by eradicating class by any means necessary."

- Jean-Paul Satre

5. Why would followers of a candidate without morals have any themselves?

At least, it seems like they take on their candidate's flaws the more they worship them.
