C.E. Dyer reports that the Democrat National Committee’s new Chairman, Tom Perez, embarked on a laughable “unity tour” recently, and was met with boos and a bird crapping incident that symbolized the state of the party as Perez melted down throughout.
The Democrat’s shit hit the fan. The Observer reported:
Proving how out of touch he is, Perez has desperately used swearing to attempt to gain favor with younger audiences. During the tour, he said that President Donald Trump “doesn’t give a shit about healthcare.” He has sworn in previous appearances as well, and the DNC is selling a shirt on their website born from one of Perez’s comments with the slogan “Democrats give a shit about people.” Perez’s swearing comes off as forced, contrived, and insults the intelligence of Democratic voters. Instead of using brash marketing rhetoric, the Democratic Party needs to challenge billionaires and wealthy donors who incessantly pick away at democracy to expand their wealth and power. No one believes that Democrats give a shit about people while they further embolden special interests and big donors.
Perez claimed that pro-lifers aren’t welcome. According to the DNC chair, those who are pro-life have no place in the Democrat Party, something both Sanders and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi disagreed with.
During an interview with NPR about his support for Omaha Democrat mayoral candidate Heath Mello — who Perez was criticized for supporting before he flipped and issued an anti pro-life statement — Sanders noted that there should be room in the party for those who are pro-life.
“The truth is that in some conservative states there will be candidates that are popular candidates who may not agree with me on every issue,” Sanders said. “I understand it. That’s what politics is about. If we are going to protect a woman’s right to choose, at the end of the day we’re going to need Democratic control over the House and the Senate and state governments all over this nation.”
“And we have got to appreciate where people come from and do our best to fight for the pro-choice agenda. But I think you just can’t exclude people who disagree with us on one issue.”
Pelosi was asked, in an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press, if a Democrat could also be pro-life, to which she responded, “of course.”
“I have served many years in Congress with members who have not shared my very positive—my family would say aggressive—position on promoting a woman’s right to choose,” she added.
What this means. As we all know, the Democrat Party is a mess — and the bird that reportedly took a dump on Perez, along with the crowds that booed him, gave a solid (well, not so solid in the case of the bird) assessment of where the party is at.
In fact, Perez’s choice to use the word “shit” frequently during the “unity tour” is apropos, given that the party has turned into a real shit show.
