In her own words: Nina Turner seems to hate the Democratic party.

In her own words: Nina Turner seems to hate the Democratic party. --- Here's an interesting collection of video/audio clips of interviews that Nina-T has given over the years. She makes it very clear that she has nothing but contempt and distrust of the Democratic Party. Yet here she is, running "as a" Democrat (but only because her preferred "People's Party" didn't have what it takes to get on the ballot in Ohio.)

I spent a few minutes typing a transcript of the on-screen text AND her exact words. Watch and listen to the video... read-along if you want. Here is the TRUTH about what Nina-T thinks of Democrats... the words are coming from her own mouth!

Nina Turner is running as a Democratic candidate for #OH11 but she seems to hate the party. She never said she voted for Biden in 2020 or Hillary in 2016. She also said electing President Obama was symbolic & produced no results & that Kamala as VP pick was to “check off a box”.



Nina Turner highlights the moment her disdain for the Democratic Party originated.
-- "... and at a dinner for the Ohio Democratic Party, President Clinton said everyone else's name but mine. So, this is the exclusive because I've never told this story publicly."

Nina Turner explains that President Obama was only a symbolic figure.
-- "... we made no demands of the President, and the 'symbol' of President Obama is a beautiful thing, but what did that get us collectively?"

Nina Turner explains she believes the 2016 Democratic Primary was rigged.
-- "... the fix was in from the beginning!"

Nina Turner explains she is not about party unity: She thinks her preferred 2016 candidate was "cheated"
-- "... well I wasn't there, you know, I was home. Because, my, the person I wanted, you know, got cheated in the primary."

Nina Turner explains if it is a choice between Trump or Hillary, might as well vote for the extreme.
-- "... you know if it's the difference between the lesser of the two evils, we might just go with straight-up evil!"

Nina Turner explains she "would love to see" the extreme left "go crazy" & "hold the Democratic Party hostage"
-- "... what I would love to see the progressive movement do from the progressive members of the House of Representatives and progressive members who may be in the Senate is... to go crazy! Maybe take a page out of the Tea Party book and hold the Democratic Party hostage!"

Nina Turner explains that Kamala Harris joining the ticket is about "checking off a box"
-- "... it cannot be about just checking-off a box! But it is clear that the Democratic Party -- that is what they are most concerned about -- see, they're more concerned about optics."

Nina Turner explains that Kamala Harris joining the ticket is the ticket Wall Street wants.
-- "... Wall Street has the ticket that they want!"

Nina Turner explains that having to vote between Donald Trump and Joe Biden is like choosing between two bowls of shit to eat.
-- "... you got two bowls of shit in front of you, and you got to pick one. That's the situation we in right now. Bowl #1 or Bowl #2?"

How can Nina work with a party she hates?
-- "... these so-called Democrats!"
-- "... I have no faith in the Democratic Party."

commuted if Obama accomplished anything, and those who now have health insurance who had none before Obamacare.

It's hard for me to believe she has a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degree from Cleveland State University. Anyway, I can't stand to listen to her speak. (But somehow I managed to keep down my breakfast when typing the transcript of this video.)

13. Some people have a very hate-filled outlook. To me, this is Nina, but worse than

the sad effect on their worldview is how it makes them project themself on others. I can't bear to watch Nina's interviews. That projection is just so ugly.

Whether or not she actually believes what she spiels, she has no problem using it for her own benefit.

I can't respect those I don't trust. Nina falls in that group.

I am hopeful the black clergy and all those who have come out to support Shontel Brown, especially James Clyburn, will be heard.

36. You and I share the same suspicions...

... it's difficult for me to discern if she truly and honestly believes the ugly and awful things she says, OR, is it just a political fundraising stunt.

Either way and regardless of which is closer to the truth, it's still does NOT reflect on her in a positive way. And the end result is the same: the Democratic party is smeared, tarnished, divided and weakened by her typical BS attacks and lies.

All I'm saying is that when a candidate has a stage full of clergy speaking out against a candidate and calling them out on their LIES, then it's NOT a "good look" for any candidate.

....as a "People's Party" candidate.

From their website:

"The People’s Party isn’t on the ballot in Ohio yet so she will have to run as a Democrat." (bold is mine)

https://peoplesparty.org/nina-turner-congress/

She's only grudgingly running as a Democrat and using OUR party in order to be on the ballot.

18. Why does she have ANY endorsements from ANY politicians?

Surely they KNOW who NinaT is... it's no secret what she's said, who she supported, and her absolute contempt and hostility toward Democrats, toward Hillary, toward Biden, toward Harris, and for the Democratic party.

I just wonder... do the politicians who endorse her ALSO endorse the things she's said? It can't be that they don't know who she is or what she's all about. Do they believe as she believes? Do they feel as she feels? Do they have the same disdain for the Democratic party?

All I'm trying to say is that Nina-T has made it very clear where she stands on things like this, and it's all very divisive and disturbing. Why are the politicians who endorse her willing to give her a free pass?

....President Barack Obama was just a "symbol"? I wonder why she didn't just call him a "token Black", or even worse an "Uncle Tom".

With all those inflammatory words about the Democratic Party, Democrats, President Biden and Vice President Harris, how could she possibly expect to work effectively with the Democratic Caucus in Congress or even face them?

Toxic, isn't it? In her own selfish way, she's trying to INTENTIONALLY harm the Democratic party. She's trying to create distrust and division. She's trying to stoke irrational fears and foment resentment. It's complete BS... if you know what I mean. It serves no good purpose for anyone to spend so much time and effort working AGAINST the Democratic party and trying to stymie and sabotage everything that the Biden/Harris administration want to achieve. Total BS! All of these toxic things she's saying only serve to benefit the GOP, and Trump, and Russia. Why would anyone want to do that?

The brand builders are quite destructive in their methods and obviously slow to see that the BS has been rejected multiple times. They just have to get more fringey and shrill to stay relevant. It's sad but ridiculous and sickening at the same time.

Good catch! It reinforces what we already know about her. It's just more of the same BS that we're used to.

I mean... come ON now... she has so much contempt for the Democratic Party that she went and started her OWN PARTY. But, apparently they didn't have what it takes to get her very own "People's Party" on the ballot in Ohio. So as a last resort, she grudgingly decided to run "as a" Democrat. Which means (obviously) that she's not really a Democrat... she just plays one when it's convenient for her political and personal aspirations.

There is enough dysfunction in Congress.
I know, right? I'm reminded of other fringe representatives who pout and stomp their feet and threaten to "tank" important legislation if they don't get their way.

All I'm trying to say is that Ohio deserves better, and our entire country deserves better than to have someone in congress who would willingly (and eagerly) bring the entire thing to a halt.

Some writer named Eric Sammon wrote an article condemning the CBC for not supporting the black woman NT...never mentioning that Shontel is black. Guess what, he lectures black people, refuses to acknowledge Shontel as black and guess what!!! He is white.

It did not go well for him on twitter.

Tryining to find the start of the thread.

42. I've seen Nina defenders use that a lot.

Any criticism of her (including her own words) and support of Shontel is because Nina's a woman of color (often "strong woman of color" -- maybe there's a script), insinuating racism. Even when they know Shontel is black too and it doesn't make any sense. The automatic insults are a habit, I guess.
