DUmmies Demand That Skinner Come Clean on Clinton Cash Corruption
Call it, Skinner.
That is the demand of the Hillary supporters, including PAID trolls, to Skinner in DUmmieland. That want him to "call it" for Hillary as the nominee so all debate can end and the Sandernistas will fall into line behind Hillary.
However, there is now a louder call in DUmmieland from the Sandernistas: Tell it, Skinner.
Yes, Tell it, Skinner about how you SOLD OUT and betrayed your fellow DUmmies for Clinton Cash. You might recall that a year ago, the DUmmie FUnnies REVEALED that Skinner has been getting big bucks from his paymasters at the Clinton Campaign via his wife, Shelly Moskwa. Since then the payments have continued while Skinner has maintained his silence. The most recent Federal Election Commission DOCUMENT shows that Skinner's wife hauled in $14,000 from The Paymaster for the month of March.
Since last year, the DUmmies, timidly at first but later more boldly, have been casting aspersions upon Skinner's honesty. However, since he continues to maintain his oath of Omerta on this corruption, the voices in DUmmieland are now SHOUTING at him to come clean and reveal the extent of his CORRUPTION. We can see this happen in this THREAD authored by Skinner himself, The Democratic Primary Ruined My Friendship! It starts out with Skinner republishing a Slate story about the effects of the Bernie-Hillary rivalry on friendship. I'll skip it to go straight to Post #44 in which DUmmie lumberjack_jeff demands that Skinner tell the extent of his corruption.
So let us now watch the DUmmies demand that Skinner come clean about his Clinton Cash payments in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, watching Skinner worship the green goddess Cashia, is in the [brackets]:
Skinner, we've hung out together for thirteen years.
If you and I could sit down over a beer, I'd tell you this:
I get that the relationship isn't symmetrical, it's mostly a business/customer relationship... kinda. I know that as a site that is free to me, I'm not really a customer, but my eyes, and the words I type are the product being sold.
I'm fine with that because I felt that we had a shared purpose in... not so much promoting the Democratic party as a jersey or a logo, but promoting progressive change through the Democratic party.
... But there was a competing agenda at work; the party was also being used as a vehicle to promote oligarchy and to enrich families through influence peddling; the purchasing of superdelegates in the guise of "helping downticket", money laundering by exploiting citizens united and superpacs to their full capacity.
[The Skinner family is certainly being enriched but continue lumberback_jeff...]
When I heard that you have a personal financial stake in the success of that family, I was concerned that I'd been sold out. That what I understood to be our shared agenda had been abandoned.
[Of course you have been sold out for way more than 30 pieces of silver by Skinner. Please continue...]
I appreciate that you haven't... what? Banned Sanders supporters? Not quite sure what the "call it" folks have in mind actually, but I think it would be a show of good faith for you to explain (or deny) the family connection to the Clinton campaign, and to talk about the measures you've taken to be fair with your community, approximately 70% of whom supported Bernie.
[Skinner has had a year to explain his secret acceptance of Clinton Cash but he still maintains his silence on this matter so don't expect much from him. All you and your fellow DUmmies can do is continue to focus on this corruption until hopefully Skinner will be embarrassed into making some sort of statement on this matter. And now on to the other DUmmies...]
Skinner really has not proven he is running a democratically driven discussion board, and we're supposed to stand up and take this?
The Hell I am...
[Of course it's not democratically driven. Skinner has turned DUmmieland into Cash & Carry. Money Talks, BS Walks!]
Is what you have posted a preamble or rationalization to a forthcoming purge?
[Get on Team Hillary or take a hike! So demands The Paymaster.]
If Skinner starts purging people who dislike-to-despise HRC, he'd have to slash almost all of DU. Then he'd have not much of a website left.
[No but he would have plenty of Clinton Cash left and that's what counts.]
The article is bullshit... not real life. I wonder why Skinner is pushing the meme
Skinner, the only thing Michelle's article gives me perspective on is how the NARRATIVE GETS HIJACKED by people who get paid to explain it to us.
[Ahh, this DUmmie is referring to the PAID Hillary trolls now posting in DUmmieland. David Brock is handling those cash disbursements but Mrs. Skinner gets her Clinton Cash directly from the Hillary campaign.]
Thanks for the anti-Bernie supporter hit piece, Skinner.
[At least he got paid well for it.]
I've seen this mentioned a couple of times. But I haven't seen anyone spell it out. What is the claimed connection between Skinner and the Clintons? If you don't want to type up a long response that has already been said on DU, could you link me to it?
[Clinton Cash paid to Mrs. Skinner via the Clinton Campaign. $14,000 just this past March alone.]
A connection to a candidate doesn't ALWAYS mean that person supports the candidate. One of my friends and mentors was related to John Edwards, but I did not choose to vote for him in the 2008 primary.
[Is that you, Rielle?]
Though, I would be interested in reading the connections between Skinner and the Clintons. I have always found Skinner to be even handed, regardless of who he supports. It's something I admire about him because he's much more level headed than me. he doesn't seem to get worked up easily in his posts, etc.
[Skinner and the Clintons are connected by $$$$.]
It's time, skinner! Just change the name of the website to: Hillary, Come Hell (very probably) or High Water (um, yeah, already happened).
[$$$$ eases the way thru Hell and High Water.]
I appreciate what you tried to do by posting this article, Skinner. But if there is a clamp down on Sanders posters here, I fear it really will for all intents and purposes end this site as we know it, and that would be a shame in my view.
[Apocalypse Now! It will happen when more DUmmies realize how Skinner has BETRAYED them by secretly taking Clinton Cash and remaining silent about it.]
