Just like Newton Heath (Manchester United) and Woolwich Arsenal (Arsenal FC) have done in the past.
AFC Wimbledon were formed before Wimbledon moved from south London and did start at the bottom of the pyramid.
Newton Heath and Old Trafford are both in Manchester. Woolwich and Highbury are both in London. Merton and Milton Keynes are 65 miles apart. It's not the same thing.
Winkleman ripped a club away from it's fans and community to give it to a town without a league club. He re-branded, changed the name, kit, etc, but wanted to keep the 1988 FA Cup and league position at the time. The courts declared that AFC Wimbledon were the rightful owners of the Wimbledon legacy and should be given the rights to the club's history and trophies, not MK. As for the people of Milton Keynes, they are not just like the rest of us. They profited directly from the killing of a club and stood by and let it happen by supporting Winkleman's project. He was too greedy and impatient to invest in the existing Milton Keynes non-league club and start lower down. They should all be ashamed of themselves.

"The EFL has suspended the club’s first fixture, against MK Dons on Saturday, stating that Dale has not shown them the required “proof of funds” and that he must provide it by 12 pm on Friday or the scheduled second match, away at Accrington Stanley, will also be suspended.
If that does happen, the EFL board will then meet to review Bury’s overall situation and a possible expulsion from the league is among the options it could then consider. If that were to happen, the EFL clarified that League One would be played with 23 rather than 24 clubs and next season an extra club would be promoted from League Two."
