While the Democratic Party continues to take a stand against those holding the party accountable to its written words, it is also sending a clear message for non-conformists to either “get in line” or “get the hell out”.
DNC Chair and main marionette, Tom Perez, took blatant and bold moves to oust anyone who opposed him or his corporate ideals. Now these actions and announcement was only done a short time after Democratic Party formerly asked U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders to JOIN the party. As if!!!
“The resolution calls for Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Angus King (I-Maine) to run as Democrats when they run for reelection in 2018 — when they’re both expected to win — and “beyond.””
Then they are so anxious to exert power, before the ink was dry, they went ahead and showed everyone how they plan on leading the party, without our voices and into the ground and deeper into the pockets of corporations and anti-social special interests.
The party doesn’t want to be a party of policies for the common good of common people. It wants to be a social club of elitists, and we “ain’t in it.”
These most recent actions are blatant. They are not even acting as if they care. So if you still believe the Democratic Party is the party of the people, and you want to aid them drift more to the right, where their true values lie, then you will be guilty of helping them destroy American Democracy.
The Democratic Party will kick us out of leadership, tell us to fall in line, and put their hand out for donations because “Trump”, and then INSIST on our votes, or we are to blame for their failure. This is not what the party pretends to care about.
So Progressives, my fellow warriors for the Truth and Social Equity, what is our next move?
