You would think that losing an election would cause you to take a step back and reevaluate your positions. Democrats on the other hand have instead doubled down and become more militant and intolerant. After expelling candidate Vincent Tolliver who wanted to protect gay rights, in favor of Keith Ellison (who`s Islamic anti gay and anti women faith was called into question by Tolliver) they went one step further and elected a radical insider who is reported as saying that White people are not entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act. The article linked below goes into his history of leftist extremist history which includes dropping the voter intimidation charges against the Philadelphia black panthers in 2008. Btw, after winning the election he made Keith Ellison his vp chair.
Everyone seems to think the Democratic Party dodged a bullet in selecting former Labor Secretary Thomas Perez over radical Islamist Rep. Keith Ellison for party chairman. A look at Perez’s record shows that the party dodged nothing.
Ellison’s appeal to Democrats was in his openly deranged radical extremism, he was billed as the outsider, the upstart, the new wave to freshen up the stale party that had lost so badly last November. Perez was somehow declared the moderate by default. Fact is, he was just as extreme in his views, but less noisy than Ellison. Instead of Ellison’s cacaphony and creepy associates, Perez had a actual track record. It could be summed up as one damaging-to-democracy act after another, all in the name of advancing he Democratic Party’s partisan interests. What it means is that he places party over state, same as Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez did.
