Democrats Face Left-Wing Backlash For Choosing Primary Winners Ahead Of Time

Progressive activists are furious with Democratic Party leaders who have boosted establishment Democrats over their left-wing opponents in primary races across the country.

The Intercept on Thursday published audio of House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer pressuring progressive candidate Levi Tillemann to drop out of a Colorado primary, to clear the field for establishment candidate Jason Crow.

Tillemann secretly taped the conversation with Hoyer in December 2017 before leaking it this week to The Intercept.

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) chairman Ben Ray Lujan had a policy that “early on, we’d try to agree on a candidate who we thought could win the general and give the candidate all the help we could give them,” Hoyer explained in the audio.

The Party is the Party. They don't care what you think as long as you vote party line.

Hoyer, like Pelosi, has the most extreme case of liberal cranial rectitis in the universe.

They didn't learn from rigging the HildaBeast's primary - the voters spoke their piece. Hopefully, it will happen again - keep on doing what doesn't work for you!

Bernie Sanders said he fought the establishment his whole life and he and supporters are a revolution to take back the government for the people. The clinton machine took his nomination and he told his " revolutionaries" to vote for the establishment, vote for Hillary. Bernie said we could not let an outsider like Trump in because he has never had a government job... Bernie was a complete fraud and now his people are turning on him.
