Democratic Party joins Repugnican Party in rank voter suppression

These are both colas. Many people can’t tell the difference between the two, because the difference isn’t huge. Ditto for the Repugnican Party and the Democratic Party, both of which are comprised of voter-suppressing corporate whores.

This is some good news from The Associated Press yesterday:

The New York Democratic presidential primary must take place June 23 because canceling it would be unconstitutional and deprive withdrawn presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Andrew Yang of proper representation at the Democratic convention, a judge ruled Tuesday.

U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres in Manhattan ruled after lawyers for Sanders and Yang argued Monday that they otherwise would be harmed irreparably.

The judge said there was enough time before the primary to plan how to carry it out safely. She acknowledged that the reason it was canceled — to prevent the spread of COVID-19 — was an important state interest but said she was unconvinced it justified infringing rights, especially since every voter can use an absentee ballot. She noted that no other state had canceled its primary.

Torres wrote that removing presidential contenders from the primary ballot deprived them of votes for the Democratic Party’s nomination. She said it also diminished the delegates’ influence on the party’s platform and their ability to react to unexpected convention developments.

It also “deprived Democratic voters of the opportunity to elect delegates who could push their point of view in that forum,” she said. “The loss of these First Amendment rights is a heavy hardship.”

The Democratic members of the State’s Board of Elections voted last week to cancel the presidential primary even though New York still planned to hold its congressional and state-level primaries June 23. …

The “Democrats” of New York state aren’t done trying to stop the democratic process, though; they plan to appeal Judge Torres’ ruling. Because of course.

So know this about the members of the Democratic Party establishment: They will rail against “President” Pussygrabber & Co.’s efforts to suppress Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters, but they have no problem at all trying to help their favored candidates, such as Hidin’ Joe Biden, even if that means committing voter suppression, too.

Repugnicans don’t want you to be able to vote for a Democrat, and Democrats don’t want you to be able to vote for the “wrong” Democrats.

This is why I changed my voter registration from Democrat to independent back in 2016 and why it remains that way: The Repugnican Party and the Democratic Party are just like the Pepsi Party and the Coke Party — it can be quite difficult to distinguish which is which.
