The Democrat Party is getting more and more insane, and it’s costing them members.
Rather than do any self-reflection following their devastating loss to Donald Trump (and in every other area of government), they’re continuing the same old identity politics that cost them the election in the first place. The Party is currently looking for the next Chair to head the DNC (as their last chair, and current interim chair face serious ethics concerns), and it looks like they’re going to pick someone based on identity rather than qualifications.
Democrat strategist and former Bernie Sanders spokeswoman Symonne Sanders (no relation) said on CNN that “we don’t need white people leading the Democratic party right now” – and the party listened.
The current pick will likely be Keith Ellison now, a man who once proposed making a separate country for blacks. His connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and opposition to the State of Israel are worrisome to many, and among those threatening to leave the party over his likely appointment is none other than liberal Alan Dershowitz.
Speaking on Fox Business, Dershowitz said there is a divide in the Democratic Party over Jewish issues, particularly the support of Israel, or lack thereof, offered by the Obama administration.
Dershowitz said Ellison’s past praise of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is enough to make him and other Jews leave the party.
“It does, and if they now appoint Keith Ellison, who worked with Farrakhan, to be chairman of the DNC you’re going to see a lot of people leave” Dershowitz said. “I’m going to tell you right here on this show and this is news, if they appoint Keith Ellison to be chairman of the Democratic Party, I will resign my membership to the Democratic Party after 50 years of being a loyal Democrat.”
Ellison has defended Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan against accusations of anti-Semitism. Even the Obama White House was reportedly worried about the concept of Ellison taking the reins at the DNC—and Ellison’s staff seem to know how sensitive the congressman’s association with the NOI leader has become; he bolted from a New York Times interview when the publication told him that they would ask him about his ties to Farrakhan.
I say, good for those liberals leaving the Democrat Party! It’s great that even the far-left is waking up to the insanity that is the Democrat Party, today.
