Day of Blogging for Voter Justice, Tuesday, March 25, 2008
The Afrosphere Action Coalition (AAC) is circulating an online petition to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), to super-delegates, and calling upon Senator Hillary Clinton to "face the reality of the earned delegates count, concede defeat, and thereby contribute to healing a wound which is opening and continues to widen" in the Party. Therefore, the AAC is sponsor "Day of Blogging for Voter Justice."
As the nomination contest for the Democratic nomination wears on, Senator Hillary Clinton insist on waging an increasingly divisive campaign; throwing the "kitchen sink" at Senator Barack Obama, dismissing democratic voters as in consequential in those states with large Black populations, in small states, or in what she regards as "red states". In fact, Clinton discounts every state that she fails to win.
Behind in the earned delegate count and the popular vote, "Clinton's desperate political tactics threaten to split the long-standing Democratic Party coalition." "We utterly reject Senator Clinton's endorsement of the other party's candidate's; an act which unprecedented." If she cannot win enough earned delegates under the current process, "Clinton seeks self-serving rules changes or to win in a smoke-filled room."
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 2008 Democratic National Committee Convention Chair, states that "If the votes of the Super-Delegates overturn what's happened in the elections, it would be harmful to the Democratic Party." (New York Times)
The Afrosphere Action Coalition concurs and therefore calls upon the DNC, super-delegates and Hillary Clinton to "end her relentless war against established Party principles and constituencies and concede defeat in the nominating process."
Therefore, on Tuesday, March 25, 2008, the Afrosphere Action Coalition will conduct a Day of Blogging For Voter Justice – "Concede Now, Hillary". Coalition members and friends will blog to insist that our votes, earned delegates and established rules be honored. We must unite behind our nominee in March, not August. Hillary Clinton cannot win and must concede defeat now.
