So, I'm a Celtics fan first and foremost---Didn't vote for Trump...but I've been disgusted with all of this Anti-Trump Garbage on this site for over a year now.

How come there is ABSOLUTE SILENCE on this board today--over the Donna Brazille News, confirming that Hillary Clinton and the DNC Rigged the election against Bernie Sanders-?
Bunch of hypocrites on this site....even Elizabeth Warren said it was Rigged today.

Mostly because this has been known since last summer.
Also because there was some other rigging going on and we're dealing with the consequences of that, far more successful medddling.

Absolutely sickening

I am no fan of Bernie Sanders socialist ideas, but his supporters were absolutely duped.

According to the lawyers that brought a law suit against the DNC, Sanders received 200 mil In donations for his campaign, even though it was already decided that Hillary was to be the nominee.

They straight up stole hundreds of millions of dollars from people contributing to the Sanders campaign, yet he still backed Hillary and stepped aside when the time came for Hillary to be the nominee.

People need to wake up.

I'm no Trump supporter, nor do I feel he is worth defending, so I won't touch the "hypocrit" stuff.

But there is a big difference between rigging a party primary and rigging a national election. Political parties can pretty much make up their own rules as they please. Not that it is acceptable, but, it pales in comparison to what Trump is accused of doing with the help of the Russians.

Needless to say, no one should be surprised by what went down with the DNC, though.   Hillary's always been dirty.

Agreed.   It’s time to limit campaign contributions, political ads — or both. 

That “Citizens United” decision was one of the worst things our Supreme Court has ever done to us.

As much as I appreciate Bernie's authentic true-believerism, the Democratic primary was a contest between a bonafide member of the party and an independent who wanted the party's spot on the ballot and signed on just to run for President. So... I don't care if it was rigged against Bernie.

The real travesty in this was 1) how she was able to work the inside game to keep other, better Democratic candidates from even attempting to run, and 2) the incompetent financial management of the DNC that forced them to make such a deal with the devil.

I generally respond to political threads and don't start them. I doubt this makes me hypocritical. A little harsh by the OP IMO. 

The Hillary-DNC actions are disgusting and reprehensible.  Debbie W-S was a disgrace, Brazille was no better, and the DNC, collectively, should be ashamed.   Hillary's actions give credence to Trump's "crooked" assertions and it's a crying shame that democrats couldn't put forth better candidates than a politically-slimy Hillary and a way too far left Bernie.  I am ashamed to have voted for her in the general election as the "lesser...".     No pivot to the misdeeds of others -- Hillary needs to be the owner of her conniving misbehavior and no deeds of others should mitigate her complicity in this.  No pivot to bash the other side.

I hope the democratic party can get it's act together and present a few credible candidates in the next election.  Hopefully we've heard the last of Hillary and Bill as forces within the party.  Time for new democrat moderates to take the mantle -- not sure who they are, but Dems better not get pushed farther left by this.  No to Bernie, No to Warren.   Yes to a Manchin, Warner, Donnelly, King (Angus) - type moderate.   

Acknowledge the misbehavior openly, brazenly, and then clean it up Democrats!! Be a model for accountability. Please.

I don't support neither Trump nor Hilary, nor Bernie's socialist ideas as well, but I agree with everybody's points, people need to realize that there are corruption on every level within the government, so voting for Hilary because one hates Trump or voting for Trump because one hate Hilary imo is a bad strategy. Us citizens are the ones getting screwed over long term. I think people need to stop treating the voting system as a popularity contest.

To be honest  - as troubling as this is - I still don't see how Democrat in-fighting compares to some of the other stuff going on right now.

huh.

so the good way to do it is to not vote? Waste your vote on Evan McMullin(sp?).

I REALLY think the thread title needs to be changed. Seems like the definition of 'click-bait' (even on a blog site).

And, are we really doing this with all of the Trump/Russia stuff going on? Hillary was always going to be nominee regardless of who she was running against (maybe maybe maybe Biden) and had the super-delegates.

This.

And as a BLACK retired Navy veteran I'm quite concerned with the COS' recent comments on the Civil War.........

A "Compromise" would've kept the Civil War from happening? Someone more intelligent than I please feel free to explain......

I was - to be honest - MORE shocked that a thread did not pop on Celticsblog about that...I saw one on the Manafort thing..
