Democratic Party sickness deepens
You would think the Democratic Party would have learned it’s lesson concerning its systemic efforts to rig campaigns but no, they have simply doubled down on lunacy.
There is a race on for DNC chair and the field is huge, and it includes some real losers like a candidate that lectured white America (she’s white) on the need to “shut up” because we cannot understand the BLM perspective AT ALL if we are white and therefore need to completely shut our mouths. This lunatic the DNC did not throw out of the race and/or disqualify but Donna Brazille, still the acting DNC head, did throw somebody out of the race yesterday. How the hell is Brazille still in that role after the Clinton/CNN/wikileaks fiasco?
More signs of deep decay, the Party has so many disgraced figures right now, it isn’t even chasing all of them away.
Anyway Brazille did throw a man named Vincent Tolliver out of the race.
Tolliver was disqualified because he pointed out that people should not vote for Keith Ellison (another DNC candidate) because he is a Muslim. Here is Tolliver’s reasoning, from The Hill, and after you read it, ask yourself if speaking out — what you believe to be the truth — on an issue this important; should be grounds for being removed from a political race, removed, not censured, not rebuked, but removed.
From The Hill –Vincent Tolliver, a former House candidate in Arkansas, said that Ellison, the first-ever Muslim elected to Congress, should not be chairman because of Islamic positions on homosexuality.
“His being a Muslim is precisely why DNC voters should not vote for him,” Tolliver wrote. “Muslims discriminate against gays. Islamic law is clear on the subject, and being gay is a direct violation of it. In some Muslim countries, being gay is a crime punishable by death.”
Tolliver went on; “Clearly, Mr. Ellison is not the person to lead the DNC or any other organization committed to not discriminating based on gender identity or sexual orientation,” Tolliver continued. “I’m shocked HRC [Human Rights Campaign] has been silent on the issue. A vote for Representative Ellison by any member of the DNC would be divisive and unconscionable, not to mention counterproductive to the immediate and necessary steps of rebuilding the Democratic Party.”
It’s like Donna Brazille and her cohorts purposely want to destroy the Democratic Party. To ignore the reality of why Ellison is exactly the wrong pick at this time, and not discuss his faith — and it’s views on Sharia Law, homosexuals, women’s rights, and many other things — is how they lost to Trump.
Ever single American knows Joe Biden is a practicing Catholic but nevertheless supports a woman’s right to choose. This is because people have asked about it, discussed it, and made their own choices about his integrity on that issue one way or the other. Biden didn’t allow this, he understood, it’s part of the process.
Brazille is saying that what was good for Biden and good for the American people will just not work at all for Ellison.
Brazille is a bullshitter and this is just more of her bullshit. Unfortunately this nonsense has become the mainstay of the Party narrative instead of the real issues facing the country, the ones Trump is dealing with at his desk, right now, 2 or 3 an hour.
Not a pace I like, 1 or 2 a day would make me more comfortable — but I guarantee you, the American people love what he’s doing and why he doing it — and I don’t think Brazille, Obama, Schumer or Pelosi understand EITHER of those right now.
