Reince Priebus urges GOPers to donate to Bernie in order to politically undermine Hillary

In a normal election, donors give to their favorite candidates either to curry favor later on, or to provide the resources necessary for the preferred candidate to run an effective campaign. It is a rare occurrence when donors give to their candidate’s opponent’s opponent in a primary, but that is exactly what Republican donors are now encouraged to do.

Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, appearing on “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace” this past weekend, urged GOP members to fight against Hillary Clinton’s “coronation” as winner in the 2016 Presidential election by financially supporting her Democratic challenger, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Asked to explain his new directive, Priebus offered Wallace this insight into the GOP strategic plan to be enacted as soon as possible: “The Republican field of candidates is so wide that donating to Rubio, Bush or Paul is not preventing Hillary from winning the primary. There are too many messages getting mixed up. We sometimes can’t tell one of our candidates from another.”
<snip>
The GOP chair responded in measured tones. “Sanders,” Priebus explained, “ says he wants to fight against a government ‘of the billionaires, by the billionaires and for the billionaires,’ so we want all Republican donors to give Sanders only fifty dollars like his current donors have been doing. It will cause… great consternation in the Clinton camp that Sanders is appealing to the masses.

I wonder if Bernie knows about the GOP tactic and is instead twisting this action in an attempt to portray that he is actually appealing to cross over votes?

ETA: Down thread, I have been told that this is satire.

Not one who's in the pocket of corporations.

Not one who lied to get us into an illegal war that cost almost a million lives.

Not one who changes her positions depending on what polls dictate.

Face it, you guys are humping this non-scandal and other conspiracy theories because you know Bernie is better.

The op is hillaryous on so many levels and your continued attack on Bernie just means you're feeling the Bern.

too bad its satire


National Report is a website which posts fictional articles related to world events. It is described by Snopes.com as a fake news site, by FactCheck.org as a satirical site and by Caitlin Dewey of the Washington Post as part of a fake-news industry, making profits from "duping gullible Internet users with deceptively newsy headlines." The National Report describes itself as a "news and political satire web publication" and provides a disclaimer that "all news articles contained within National Report are fiction".

Stories from the National Report have been taken seriously by third parties such as Fox News Channel, and the site drew criticism in October 2014 for running a series of fake stories about Ebola outbreaks in the United States, including the false report that the town of Purdon, Texas, has been quarantined after an outbreak. The story led to a traffic spike of two million unique visitors, and although the story was debunked by other websites, the original National Report story received six times as many "shares" on social media sites as the debunking stories di

32. This is s fun OP

It's amazing how close satire and reality can be. Does any one doubt that RancidP would do this if he thought it would help dig him out of that proverbial hole? Not me!

46. All good satire is based on an element of truth to be effective

In the real world, the idiots at the National Review urged conservatives to support Bernie Sanders http://www.nationalreview.com/article/420262/bernie-sanders-republicans-myra-adams

Support Bernie Sanders!

This is a call to action for every Republican anxious to win back the White House in 2016. Bernie Sanders, the socialist U.S. senator from Vermont, is now surging in his quest to win the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. He is attracting media attention and large crowds, and is invigorated by a New Hampshire–primary poll showing him only 10 points behind frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

After a GOP power player sent me a piece from left-leaning Salon headlined “Hillary Clinton is going to lose: She doesn’t even see the frustrated progressive wave that will nominate Bernie Sanders,” my heart went pitter-patter, beginning to sense an opportunity. But it was not until I saw a headline in The Hill warning that the “Sanders surge is becoming a bigger problem for Clinton,” accompanied by “It may be time for Hillary Clinton to take the challenge from Sen. Bernie Sanders more seriously,” that I was truly motivated to join Team Bernie and rally my fellow Republicans to do the same.

The GOP is urging people to support sanders because the conservatives know that they can not beat Hillary Clinton. The author of this article actually made a contribution to Sanders.

The above satire article is funny because there is an element of truth to it

49. Maybe you didn't see the "silly crap" that Sanders

was going after Trump's supporters with the "silly crap" notion that he was.going to convert them!

Even the GOP doesn't want them, that's how silly they are.

60. It appears that I would be denying many a Sanders supporter the ability for a good flogging

 

Du is just a web site, I'm frankly not that frothed up about making a mistake. It appears it's much more important for several posters to continue with the flogging. I suppose it makes them feel superior, while the reality is that it becomes a lovely reflection on the types of persons Sanders supporters can be.

Since there have been lots of responses, I think it's way too late to worry about deleting the OP...don't you? But perhpas I can bold the last line in the OP?

75. Satire is posted here every once in a while

 

sometimes the poster knows it's satire, and sometimes they don't. At the time I posted it I didn't realize it was satire. Untrue is sort what satire is about...right?

as for deleting, see my response in post #60.

At this point, I may look silly but there is a whole other faction of persons that look far, far worse. I'm ok with leaving it up.

77. If you had actually posted it as satire and hadn't needed that pointed out to you

that might hold water - while still being obnoxious. But whatever. We can just keep attacking the Democratic candidates, and when one of them wins the Republicans will have lots of ammo.

91. I disagree. I see horrible posts by Clinton supporters here all the time.

And I can't help but notice that almost always in a positive OP about Sanders the first posts are from Clinton supporters shitting on the good news. But I do realize that I'm more sensitive to those, which is why I acknowledge "both sides". A little less awareness and I'd say it was all Clinton supporters slinging shit.

93. Oh, please. Rush Limbaugh openly advocated switching

parties to vote in the Democratic primares to skew results. This is barely satire considering that. It's a snub on Bernie and his fans, which is what you object to. But you can't tell me that it's so far out there considering this is a commonly discussed tactic.. Quit with the phony outrage! Get over it.

99. That's Great! Nothing attaches a voter to a candidate more than a political donation!

.


Go ahead! Donate.

At first it might seem like an undermining the Democrats for GOP motives, but when a voter puts money towards a candidate, they become vested in them to some degree. This will cause some of the GOPers to investigate liberal progresivism, especially the part about who the GOP actually cater to, and that might backfire.
