TWO Big Reasons Why Hillary Actually Won Michigan – As I Tweeted Last Night

By Debbie Schlussel


I knew Bernie Sanders would win Michigan, last night, and I knew it would really be a loss (as I noted on Twitter, last night–Follow Me on Twitter), and here’s why.

* “Progressives,” radicals, populists, and racists (like George Wallace) who have no chance of winning the general election, have historically trounced in the Michigan Democrat Primary (and Caucuses).

The Dems, here in Michigan, are historically very very left–even more left than elsewhere in the country. There are no Reagan Democrats left. They became Republicans. As I noted on Twitter last night, Jesse Jackson won the 1988 Democratic caucus (with 55% of the vote). In 1980, Edmund “Jerry” Brown a/k/a Governor Moonbeam won the Democrat Primary (Jimmy Carter was not on the ballot). And in 1972, George Wallace got 809,239 votes to eventual nominee George McGovern’s 425,694 votes in the Michigan Democrat Primary.

As you know, none of these people went on to win the Democratic nomination for President (thank G-d).

* Hillary comes out of Michigan with MORE delegates than Bernie, despite “Bernie Win.”

The numbers changed since this tweet, but essence remains true . . .

As I tweeted last night, at least 11 of 17 Michigan Democrat Superdelegates committed to Hillary and are staunch, solid Clintonistas. These are establishment Dems who would never ever vote for Bernie. Michigan, a proportional state (as long as a candidate wins at least 20% of the primary vote), gave Bernie Sanders 65 delegates (he won 49.8% of the vote) and Hillary 58 delegates (she got 48.3% of the vote). But with at least 11 superdelegates committed to her, she comes out of Michigan with at least 69 delegates (and possibly up to 75 delegates. As I noted in my tweets, last night, Michigan (and many other states) are #Rigged4Shrillary.

I went down the list of Michigan Democrat superdelegates and noted which ones are openly committed to Hillary and which ones I know are Hillary establishment types who need her to keep on making money in the Dem Machine. That includes the following:

Openly committed to Hillary: U.S. Senators Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow (or, Stab-a-Cow, as I call her), U.S. Congresscritters Brenda Lawrence, Dan Kildee, Sander Levin, Debbie Dingell(berry or Dingell-ing, take your pick), and Former Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer.

Also for sure voting for Hillary, DNC member and Michigan Dem hack “operative” Jill Alpert. She knows on which side her hackery is buttered. Cha-ching.

And there are three other Michigan Dem superdelegates whose names I don’t know (they haven’t been publicly identified anywhere) who are also reportedly pulling for Hillary Rodham Cankles.

So much for being the “party of the people.” They simply don’t care about the people. It’s pre-stacked for #Chelsea’sMom (who doesn’t have it going on).

See . . . if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll get this news early and first (before the establishment “conservative” media rips me off the next morning).

You correctly mentioned the Democratic machine. Growing up in Chicago and living there for a short ime, one is aware that the machine is an infection. No business in the city is exempt from dealing with the mob. Neighbors, etc.

Like “Chicken Man” they are everywhere.

My concern is that the general election will be rigged by the Democratic machine/mob and Clinton will prevail, regardless of who the Republican is. Yes I mean the voting procedure will be rigged.

Take off the rose colored sunglasses everybody.

Yep! I saw your tweets last night…and you really are enormously funny & clever! #Rigged4Shrillary and Stab-a-Cow really gave me a good laugh. I also totally agreed with your post yesterday about the Trump commercial! I find absolutely nothing objectionable about it and in fact agree that it portrays him as actually very tough, as you mentioned. I too do not like Ted Cruz (except for his views on Israel) or Trump but will definitely vote for either of them for sure. Hillary is a candidate from hell.

Off topic but I wanted you to know that your coverage many months ago about the antisemitism of ‘Quantico’ has caught on – finally! Good work!

Lastly, I just finished reading Meir Kahane’s “They Must Go”, a very fine book. If not for your blog, I wouldn’t have thought about finding it. Many thanks!

Hillary is not all that popular.

But after her loss to Obama 8 years ago, she took out an insurance policy for the unexpected… and rigging the primary would ensure a loss wouldn’t really be a loss at all. Enter the superdelegates of the party establishment who owe her big time.

Between racist black voters and the SDs, she has nothing to worry about and in the actual delegate math, Hillary is already half way to the nomination.

And the Bern isn’t going to wrest it away from her. That’s one thing you can be sure of in this life as are her odds of being the next POTUS.

Good analysis of the MI Democratic primary outcome from Debbie here.

I think the explanation of Michigan’s electoral peculiarities goes back to the 1920s.

The auto industry became huge in Detroit after World War I, and Blacks and Whites migrated to Detroit from the South in very large numbers to staff it. They carried their racial tensions with them, and these tensions were exacerbated by Ford Motor Co., where Henry Ford in a paternal manner hired many Blacks, being praised by Black organizations for so doing.

During the mid-30s, the CIO (Congress of Industrial Organizations, a labor organization organizing workers by industry rather than by craft) was formed and the UAW (United Automobile Workers) became one of its major unions. Unlike most CIO unions, the UAW had a tradition of struggle (e.g. the sit-down strikes in Flint) foreign to most of the other unions. Ford wasn’t organized until right before World War II, partly because of Ford’s practices of playing Blacks against Whites.

The hostility between Blacks and Whites was quite concentrated in Detroit, partly because of the concentration of auto industry there, and the wildfire migration of Blacks and Whites from the South. Tensions also existed about the role of Blacks in the auto industry. All of this helps explain the strength of Father Coughlin during the 30s, the Wallace movement during the 60s, and the opposition to forced busing in the ensuing years.

At the same time, the tradition of struggle in the UAW caused leftism to flourish in that union. The Communists, although they never obtained complete control of the union, were extremely influential until 1947, and other leftist groups obtained influence there as well. Pockets of this influence continued even during the Cold War 50s, and the bureaucracy of the UAW was further to the left than most union bureaucracies.

At the same time, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor was particularly hospitable to leftist influences emanating from German refugees during the late 30s, especially from the (in some respects) Marxist Frankfurt School (mainly in the Social-Psychology department) but in other departments as well. The Anthropology Department was susceptible to left-wing influence, and the Economics Department contributed to the New Deal. There was UAW influence in Ann Arbor as well.

These traditions, especially embodied in the children of UAW bureaucrats help explain why SDS (Students for a Democratic [sic] Society) originated in Ann Arbor (e.g. the Port Urine statement of 1962). The leftist traditions of the UAW also help explain why the civil rights movement was stronger in Detroit than in many other Northern cities. The fact that the UAW was not completely free of racism, and, at the same time had more openness than most other unions helps explain the Black activism in the UAW in the 40s, 50s, 60s and early 70s which carried over into Detroit as a whole.

These traditions also help explain why left-wing candidates have done well in Michigan elections, even through yesterday’s victory by Bernie Sanders, and help explain the seeming contradiction between the existence of the Wallace movement and the leftists.

    Thanks for mentioning Ann Arbor campus. As soon as I entered college in upstate NY in the late 60s, I was informed that Ann Arbor was the vanguard of leftist revolt.

a vote for hitlery is vote to lose your rights as an american and that commie bitch will turn you into a serf.

Yup, it is a rigged contest. I wonder if and when Democratic base voters will rebel. Hillary Clinton would not even be a second choice for such voters, if they had a choice.

I will bet that a lot of Sanders voters across the country will vote Trump over Hilary, if he is the eventual GOP nominee

Infidel on March 9, 2016 at 9:41 pm


Bernie won. He won BIG… for the GOP.

Here’s something to think about Deb. Let’s go over the list in your column.

>Jesse Jackson won the 1988 Democratic caucus (with 55% of the vote).

Did the Democrats win in November 1988?

>In 1980, Edmund “Jerry” Brown a/k/a Governor Moonbeam won the Democrat Primary (Jimmy Carter was not on the ballot).

Did the Democrats win in November 1980?

>And in 1972, George Wallace got 809,239 votes to eventual nominee George McGovern’s 425,694 votes in the Michigan Democrat Primary.

Did the Democrats win in November 1972?

>As you know, none of these people went on to win the Democratic nomination for President (thank G-d).

As YOU know, in each case you cite, the eventual Democratic nominee was trounced in November.

Deb: What are you kvetching about! WE WON!

Like I say to everyone I can: A vote against Hillary Rodham NOW is worth TWO votes against her in November.

I feel a bit lonely in my belief that Hillary Rodham is un-electable. So be it.

Last point: I feel compelled to call this out. Let me simply ask some questions your readers can answer for themselves.

With all due respect, 2008 is not 1988, 1980 or 1972 – demographically or otherwise. With a far more monolithic Democrat voter base thanks to all these subgroups that have been cultivated, plus the vote rigging and other chicanery they are infamous for (plus news about Latinos registering to further skew election outcomes towards total monolithic one-party rule), the odds are indeed stacked against our side. But as they say, we’ll see what happens . . .

As for the youth vote I keep bringing about which is as much a factor in why we have such bad “leaders” as other groups, if they were imbued with proper values and a true appreciation for our heritage and identity, there wouldn’t be this discussion about their presence in the voting booth. It was noted that the 18-24 age group in Israel was one of the reasons why Netanyahu won re-election as Prime Minister last year; they are acutely aware of the daily threat of annihilation by the forces of jihad surrounding them. But here, the fog of leftist indoctrination in our schools, colleges, et al. (including good ol’ Ann Arbor) is such that Obama’s two victories amongst this age bloc weren’t merely attributable to their voting as if they were picking a favorite contestant of “American Idol” or “Dancing With The Stars,” among other shallow, superficial reasons – polls of Millennials’ views on so-called “hot-button” social issues (i.e. gay marriage, abortion), their support of the redistribution-of-wealth schemes floated by Hillary and especially Sanders, their support of a $15-an-hour minimum wage (clearly showing their total lack of business experience, having to meet a payroll and basic expenses inherent in running a business), and so on – to say nothing of their anti-American hatred and sympathies with jihad, participation in astroturf “movements,” etc. – are also reflective of the Left’s total control of our “educational” system over the last five decades, and it will only get worse.

Trump Won on Trade in Michigan. Sanders Didn’t.

Bernie wins but Hellary still gets the Delegates & Super-Duper, Puper, Scuper Delegates. What a whacked out system the Dims have going on here. Their Cockasses are just that. Bernie takes it southside. I thought I hated Dim-O-Craps about as much as I possibly could, but I hate them more than ever now.

MuzzCrusher on March 10, 2016 at 10:35 am

Excellent summation of the Democrap party election machine Debbie. It is nothing but a rigged system to where even if the old socialist Bernie “wins” a state Her Thihgness Killary will still win most of the delegates. This corrupt lying hag already has the super delegates in her ample back pocket and she’s way ahead of Bernie in the delegate count anyway. The only reason why she lost to the O’Clown in 2008 is because the dems had a shinier(and in the words of gaffes Biden an articulate and clean Black man)object spouting hope and change nonsense. That caused the liberal Blacks(the gimme dats) and the super delegates to abandon the “good” ship Clinton and jump on the dopey hopey changey bandwagon. Eight long years later there’s nothing stopping the Benghazi liar from waddling to the convention in West Philly to shake hands with Debbie(poodle head)Washernameshultz. Say what you want about Trump but I know that he’s the only one who can take to the PIAPS and win. This I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again this person cannot be allowed to stink up the White House again. Could you just imagine BJ near the intern pool. Yeah neither can I. Don’t Tread On Me 2016.

Ken B on March 10, 2016 at 11:54 am

    “the gimme dats” – ROTFLMAO!!! “He gave us a PHONE.”

    As for Debbie Blabbermouth Schulz, she’s not the best looking chick at the prom, but she does have a nice big ass.

    Alfredo from Puerto Rico on March 10, 2016 at 2:29 pm

I actually refer to such voting exercises as “carcasses” (i.e. the “Iowa Carcass”), but other than that . . . and I’d meant to say “2016 is not 1988, 1980 or 1972 . . . ” in my prior post here – though 2008, the year Obama was first “elected” President, wasn’t those earlier years either.

ConcernedPatriot on March 10, 2016 at 1:49 pm

How can we trust Hillary to manage our country when she hasn’t been able to control her husband’s serial adultery? How can we trust Hillary to protect our top secrets, when she’s admitted to being “careless” and “making mistakes” when she was just a Secretary of State. How can we trust her stamina when we’ve all seen the video evidence of her having uncontrollable coughing fits, episodic fainting spells, suffered a head injury, has what appears to be mini seizures and spacing out while talking? She also disappears from public and media eye for weeks and months at a time when she’s ill. And let’s not forget she called black males “super predators” . And let’s not forget that she called half of Trumps’ supporters a “basket of deplorables.” Clinton also told Hispanic voters she was just like their “abuela.” Even though Hillary has never had to cross a border. Work as a maid, apply for food stamps, suffered discrimination, had to learn English or lived in an apartment with 12 other people. And Chelsea Clinton is delusional talking about “white privilege”. This, coming form a pampered only child daughter who has had nothing but white privilege her entire life. Moreover, Hillary Clinton will have you believe she’s just like you as she’s wearing a 12,000 dollar pants suit and dawning a 200 dollar hair cut. Trump doesn’t pretend to be just like us. He’s proud of who he is, but still has an awareness of what others go through. This is the type of man we want as president. Vote Trump. Hillary has been in politics for over 30 years, and she’s still talking about the same things she’s been talking about for 30 years. All talk. No action. Vote Trump. He’s a real man in so many ways. Thta’s what we all love about Trump. He’s genuine. So was Bernie Sanders, but sadly, Sanders isn’t an option after Clinton’s DNC criminal cohorts made sure Sanders was knocked off the race. The best revenge Sander supporters can take is to vote for Trump.
Psycholigists show Clinton is PHONY: Sanders was GENUINE. But Clinton’s angry wolves destroyed Sander’s chances via the corrupt DNC. Best revenge: NEVER HILLARY. VOTE TRUMP.
