If Democrat Voters Are Mad About Biden, They Should Blame the DNC's Habit of Controlling Outcomes

Democrats are currently going through various stages of grief. Some are in denial, some are angry, and some are just despondent. However, almost all of them agree that President Joe Biden has to go. His debate performance has the Democrat Party and its voters rattled, probably in ways I haven't seen in my 40 years on this Earth. 

The issue is that for all the negative emotions Democrats are experiencing, there's not really much they can do about it. As I wrote on Friday, the options for replacing Biden are limited, and likely unable to win any more than he can.

But if Democrats are feeling all these emotions, anger should definitely be one of them. However, they should probably direct that anger away from their usual targets and put it toward the group that put them in this situation to begin with, the Democrat National Committee. 

Recall that the DNC made it clear that Biden was going to be the primary candidate going forward and there would be no discussion about it. They deprived Democrats with concerns of coming up with an alternative solution to the Biden problem they saw coming a mile away. Every Democrat voter is now trapped in the situation they're in thanks to the DNC's lack of Democratic thinking. 

The Washington Examiner's Tiana Lowe Doescher wrote on this very subject noting that the dangers of putting Biden up as the man to lead the charge were apparent, but the DNC silenced anyone and everyone who had doubts with an iron fist: 

That Biden will be a decade past average male life expectancy by the end of a second term in the White House is hardly a revelation. Don’t just take it from my own statistical analysis of the situation, which indicates Biden has a one in three chance of dying in office should he secure a second term. Biden’s own primary opponents in 2019 warned that he was too old. Special counsel Robert Hur declined to prosecute Biden for breaking the law because he was too old. Voters, for years and years and years, have been sounding the alarm that on top of their hatred of his actual governance, they believe he is too old to effectively govern.

So it’s not that any of this information is new, but rather that Democrats have maintained such a Soviet-style grip on the media that only when Biden demanded 90 minutes against Trump was the result so cataclysmic that the party is finally forced to listen to the public response. That public response has been categorical in its disgust, shock, and pity, not just with Biden’s performance but the fact that his handlers let this farce progress to this point.

The DNC is a day late and a dollar short when it comes to hearing the people out. 

But this is pretty standard behavior from the DNC. It loves controlling outcomes, or at least influencing them as much as it possibly can to achieve the desired outcome. 

Recall back in 2016, over 19,000 emails were leaked by Wikileaks that showed the DNC was conspiring to work against then-candidate Bernie Sanders in order to prop up future loser Hillary Clinton. The emails showed that then-Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz suggested bringing up Sanders' status as an atheist Jew in order to ward off support within the party: 

“It might may [sic] no difference, but for KY and WA can we get someone to ask his belief,” Brad Marshall, CFO of DNC, wrote in an email on May 5, 2016. “Does he believe in God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My southern baptist peeps woudl draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”

The leaks highlighted a corrupted DNC working behind the scenes to control the outcomes, which severely damaged its relationship with voters. Wasserman Schultz would step down soon after, but nothing really seems to have changed. 

The DNC is not concerned about the will of the people, it's concerned with one thing and one thing only; power. It saw Biden as the best chance for it, denying any arguments, and pushed forward without blinking. 

It's blinking now.
