New DNC Chair Perez Engaged Islamists, Ignored Reformers

Tom Perez has defeated Rep. Keith Ellison in the race to become chairman of the Democratic National Committee, but don’t rest easy: Perez also has a concerning record and chose Ellison as his deputy chairman.

When he was the assistant attorney general of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, he included Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups and their allies in discussions about counter-terrorism training and investigations and laws punishing alleged “hate speech” against the religion of Islam. Muslim and non-Muslim critics of such Islamist groups were not a part of Perez’ outreach on these issues.

    Let them drive the Democrat Party into the ground.

    • I agree, in fact I am disappointed Ellison lost.

    Dems may not have elevated Ellison this time, but they are still doubling down on radical identity politics. Keep it up guys, 2020 is not looking much better for you.

      The next showdown is the midterm of 2018, where the Democrats have more senators to lose than the Republicans.

        I’m really looking forward to the Congressional mid-terms.
        Conventional wisdom is going to be upended again and I’m going to finally going to be sick of all that winning.
        No, I’m not.

          Winning locally; I’m seeing all the checkpoints manned with two to three times the people, Border Patrol are far more obvious, I wave and give em a thumbs up as I ride by.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Right on!

    I don`t wish them both going to hell, but I guess all wishing is off the table.
