President Joe Biden’s announcement that he’s running for re-election in 2024 should come as no surprise to anyone. However, the theme of “democracy” seems to be far from the truth as the Democratic National Committee refuses to hold primary debates for challengers, Marianne Williamson and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

This decision to silence opposing voices has made it clear that the Democratic establishment is not interested in true democracy, but instead are resorting to rigging the nomination process. It’s no wonder why Kennedy and Williamson are slamming this choice.
Every generation has a moment where they have had to stand up for democracy. To stand up for their fundamental freedoms. I believe this is ours.

DNC has already announced that it will not allow any debates in 2024 primary. Biden is not to be challenged. Everyone on the Democratic side must shut up and fall in line. Not having debates is undemocratic and ridiculous. No progressive should agree to this kind of power grab.

The DNC refusing to hold a single primary debate is undemocratic and robs the voters of choice.
No one who feels confident in their record and/or ideas would hesitate to stand on them.
The DNC should hold debates.
This is supposed to be a democratic process.

I have known and liked Joe Biden for many years, but we differ profoundly on fundamental issues such as corporate influence in government, censorship, civil liberties, poverty, corruption, and war policy, among others. I look forward to engaging him in debates and town hall…

When I ran for Pres in 2020 the debates were rigged but in a subtle way. Preferred candidates were given more time and fed softball questions. This time Democrats are taking no chances so there will be no primary debates. This is another example of their disdain/disrespect for… pic.twitter.com/CUSlt52BLq

Even former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, who had the courage to stand up against the DNC establishment, is calling out the hypocrisy. It’s clear that the Democratic Party isn’t interested in allowing a fair and open election, but are sticking to their old, corrupt ways.
It’s unfortunate to see the lack of transparency and fairness in the Democratic Party. Biden’s so-called commitment to democracy seems to be a mere facade. Instead of continuing to suppress opposing voices and ignore the voices of the people, it’s time for the Democratic Party to step up and truly embrace democracy.
