'The Young Turks' host Cenk Uygur issued an ultimatum Sunday to the Hillary Clinton supporters in the Democratic National Committee after reading this article in The Hill over the weekend: Shattered dreams in Clintonworld
"Be gone," he tells them. "You guys want to work in the private sector anyway. Go get those jobs. Go get rich. Okay? Just leave us alone."
He continued: "Sorry, you're not getting the wheel again after driving into the ditch... We're going to take the wheel and drive it in a progressive direction. A direction the American people actually want. Get out of the way."
CENK UYGUR: In that article, they were looking forward to their 'gilded future,' God damn it, that is exactly the problem. While those guys were scheming about their gilded future, they didn't give a damn about the Democratic party. They didn't care about progressives, they didn't care about the country. So, understand why they opposed Bernie so much. Is it because they genuinely didn't think he was as good a candidate as Hillary Clinton?
It was a quarter that, because they're old... But the main reason is Bernie wouldn't have given them that "gilded future." They wouldn't have gotten all those jobs, they wouldn't have gotten to measure the drapes.
So they would have been against Bernie just as much as they would have been against Trump, because they wouldn't have gotten the beloved jobs they hoped for.
That is why today, they are busy setting the narrative that, 'Oh no, it wasn't us. It was the Bernie guys. It was Comey. It was sexism. It was everybody else. Next time, please hire us again to make the same mistakes.' Because for them, it is not a mistake, it is their livelihood...
So listen guys, all of you who worked for Hillary.
Be gone. Poof. Be gone.
You want to hate me for it? You want to say I'm pouring salt in your wounds? You want to say I'm trying to manipulate the American people? Yeah, I'm going to fight back.
What I mean by 'Be Gone,' is you guys want to work in the private sector anyway. Go get those jobs. Go get rich. Okay? Just leave us alone.
The Democratic Party has to be run by progressives... because we can't let another monster like Donald Trump win again... even if we seem impolite in our fight back against him. Sorry.
CENK UYGUR: These Hillary supporters just drove a car into a giant ditch named Trump. They let Trump win. They let him become the most powerful man on Earth. Sorry, you're not getting the wheel again after driving into the ditch. You can use any lame excuse you want, but we're not going to give you the wheel again. From now on we're going to go in a progressive direction. I know that you loved in the past to intimidate, and use the media to say that anybody who opposes [you] is not opposing [you] because of ideas and ideology, but because they have some bad intention. You don't control the media anymore, so sad day for you. We're going to take the wheel and drive it in a progressive direction. A direction the American people actually want. Get out of the way."
