The “Marxist Brothers”!
Now that the Democrats have lost the presidential election, they have proven that the party has turned to the “far left” by choosing Thomas Perez and Rep. Keith Ellison to be Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Democrat National Committee. These two are being called the “Marxist Brothers” because of their radical leftist philosophy and actions while in public office.
The leftist tilt (whatever happened to the “Blue Dog” Democrats?) of the Democrat Party was mentioned by pundits as one of the major causes and reasons why they lost the presidential election to Donald Trump, and has left the Democrat Party in shambles, and by giving the G.O.P. the majorities in both the Senate and the House, besides 34 state governorship's and over 1,000 Republican state and local elected positions. It seems that the Democrat Party is doubling down on their leftist tilt by naming Perez and Ellison to head the DNC. The Republicans are ecstatic.
Who are these new leaders of the Democrat National Committee? Let's see:
Thomas Perez, a civil rights lawyer from the State of Maryland, and of Dominican Republic descent, has previously held positions as Deputy Assistant Attorney General in charge of civil rights, and as President Obama's Secretary of Labor. Perez, as an Assistant in the Obama Justice Department, was the one who recommended dropping the voter intimidation charges against the Black Panthers, who were charged with bringing weapons into a polling place. He, at one time, testified that he didn't think “white people” are protected
by the Voting Rights Act. In addition, ala Hillary Clinton, he used a private e-mail address to dodge accountability of communicating with organizations such as Planned Parenthood, the N.Y. Times etc. He was also an ardent supporter of raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour, which most economists claim is a job killer, especially among the youth and minorities.
It was a well known fact that he was endorsed by, the Democrat establishment, both Obama and Hillary whereas his opponent for chairman, Ellison, was endorsed by socialist Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Chuck Schumer. Perez was named chairman on the second ballot by a margin of 35 votes.
Upon being elected, Perez, in an attempt to gain party unity, moved to have the committee, by acclamation, name his rival Ellison as Vice-Chairman. This the delegates did do.
As for Vice-Chairman Ellison, he also has a history of left leaning tendencies. As an example, he has a 100% rating from the pro-abortion group called NARAL; he has come out against gun rights (amending the 2nd Amendment); he wants to normalize relations with that state sponsor of terrorism, Iran; he voted to bring charges of impeachment of former Vice-President Dick Cheney for his so-called “high crimes and misdemeanors”; and he also claimed that the militant leader of the Nation of Islam of which he was once a member), Louis Farrakhan, was not an anti-Semite, even after he called Judaism a “gutter religion”; he has called for “reparations” to blacks for slavery, which ended over 150 years ago; and to top off his troubling resume he has received and accepted campaign contributions from an “un-indicted” terrorist organization called CAIR (Council of American-Islamic Relations).
In case you are unaware, Ellison is black and he is a practicing Muslim, which might account for many of his past actions and statements.
To point out some more bizarre behavior, as Ellison and Wasserman-Schultz were sitting together at the State of the Union address by President Trump, both refused to clap, even as bi-partisan issues, like job creation, were mentioned, and both sat on their hands and didn't stand when the widow of a killed-in-action Navy Seal was introduced by President Trump. They looked as though it was the worst moment in their lives as almost everyone else stood up and applauded out of respect.
So, as you can see, it looks like the Democrats didn't learn their lesson after losing the last election, mainly by tilting so far left by voting in these two radical, left-leaning leaders - the title “The Marxist Brothers” seems to fit these two to a tee.
