Why does the word “progressive” appear in that sentence? Is it necessary that the candidate be “progressive” in order to maximize the incrimination? What if the DCCC was supporting the candidate you like, and pressuring the other candidate to drop out? Would it still be rigged?
- If the DCCC is saying it provides fair and democratic primaries decided by the voters but is secretly stacking the contest to ensure the win of a pre-selected candidate, then of COURSE it’s still rigging, regardless of the candidate’s ideology.
- It wasn’t a progressive, was it? It never is. There’s an extremely relevant pattern here.
