As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Democrats Booing Lenin Because They Didn’t Get Stalin

It says something mind boggling about the Democratic Party that its chairman, Tom Perez, is too far to the right for many of its members.

Perez has been on some kind of “unity” tour with Sen. Bernie Sanders. The tour was given its name on “opposite day,” because what it’s actually doing is exposing the disunity in the Party. The left hand, it seems, doesn’t understand what the far-left hand is doing.

The mainstream media isn’t making a bid deal of this, because it likes better the storyline of “moderate” Republicans and the “far-right” Freedom Caucus plunging their fangs into each other. Writing about disunited Democrats is not a fun day at work for the liberal press.

And can I ask, for a moment, why people like Freedom Caucus members are called “far-right” but nobody, ever, in the Democratic Party is described as “far-left”? The answer, of course, is that “far-left,” like “far-right,” sounds pejorative, and everyone at the New York Times knows that the de facto socialists who now make up about half the Democratic Party are just trying the hardest of all to do good.

So, in case you missed it, here’s a bit of what’s happening. You’ll enjoy this.

Many Democrats are unhappy the winner of the race for chairman was Perez and not Rep. Keith Ellison. And so they lobbing catcalls.

This is like booing Lenin because he doesn’t quite measure up to Stalin in his willingness to get things done. Perez is about as Lefty as it gets. He was Barack Obama’s Secretary of Labor. Did you get that? Obama’s Secretary of Labor. That’s not exactly a position advertised in the National Review.

Even his new strategy of adding vile words to his speeches – i.e. everything Republicans do is “shit” and “shitty” – hasn’t helped, despite what must be the appeal for modern Democrats of hearing such language from their leaders.

But Perez might leave a few Kulaks around for show. Ellison is a scorched earth type of Leftist. While Perez is “far-left,” Ellison is “radical left.”

Ellison has said he wants Democrats to come out against the Second Amendment. He cosponsored a bill to impeach Dick Cheney.

The first Muslim elected to Congress, he has been associated with the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam and taken donations from the leaders of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which allegedly has ties to terrorist organizations.

Alan Dershowitz, whom Republicans have always viewed as a liberal, but who given the current state of affairs in the Democratic Party seems almost Thatcheresque, said he would leave the Party were Ellison elected its chair, writing:

Ellison’s anti-Semitism is confirmed by his support for another anti-Semite, Stokely Carmichael.

When there were protests about Carmichael’s speaking at the University of Minnesota, Ellison responded that: “The University’s position appears to be this: Political Zionism is off-limits no matter what dubious circumstances Israel was founded under; no matter what the Zionists do to the Palestinians; and no matter what wicked regimes Israel allies itself with — like South Africa. This position is untenable.”

But the connections are more recent as well. In 2009, Ellison headlined a fundraiser for Esam Omeish, a former candidate for Virginia state delegate who had told Palestinians that “the jihad way is the way to liberate your land.”

Ellison, having lost the race for chair, was hardly rebuked, instead being anointed Perez’s deputy. And so, if a crane falls on Perez’s head, Ellison will take the reins, I suppose.

And there will be no more booing at Democratic “unity” events.

  1. The party that booed God is not going to cheer for anyone.
    The people standing behind the speakers in both photos look like “the people of Walmart”.
    Clinton, Pelosi, Warren, Sanders, Perez, and Ellison are leading this Dem party down to the end. The young Dems are the ones who cheer ‘free college’, open borders, no speech they don’t like, and they are in the minority of Americans.

  2. Also worth a mention:

    Perez has won exactly one election in his entire life: a seat on the county council in Montgomery County, Maryland. We’re talking Chevy Chase, Bethesda, Silver Spring, and all the swanky DC burbs on the Maryland side.

    It’s also home to what’s known as the People’s Republic of Takoma Park…a phrase that, on rare occasions, is actually intended as an insult.

    After serving one term on the council, Perez ran for state Attorney General in 2006, despite being legally ineligible by any sane reading of the law.

    Now, follow me on this: The Maryland AG is required by law to have ten years of legal experience in Maryland. Perez was admitted to the Maryland bar in 2001, so he clearly did not have ten years’ experience in Maryland.

    Undaunted, he still tried to argue, with a straight face, that he had done legal work at the federal level in Maryland, and that has to count for something, right?

    The Maryland Court of Appeals eventually told Perez to go kick rocks; it is a testament to how screwed up Maryland is, that the case even got to their level. Martin O’Malley got Perez the top spot at DLLR–an appointed position–and the rest is history.

    Yet somehow, with exactly one career win at the ballot box, and a loss because he was declared legally ineligible, the Democrats think he’s leadership material.

    Ellison is unelectably extreme for Main Street, true enough. But that a sleazeball like Perez is considered a compromise, yet is still somehow too moderate for the base, should scare the snot out of every voting American.

    • The entire “Democrat” Party, including the 70 Democrats who are also members of the Democrat Socialist Party of America, scares me.

      All of the members of both the Progressive Caucus and the Black Caucus are members of the DSPA. And it is not out of line to question to which party is their loyalty or are they one in the same. This not splitting hairs or political niceties.

      This links to 2009 which is how long this has been openly exposed and so few Americans know it.

    • I wish SOMEONE in the ‘media’, like FOX News would report that…?

      ~Then again NO ONE on FOX News ever mentioned that ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ took a month long vacation in Tahiti with out any of his ‘family’…?

      • Aw, shucks…t’weren’t nothin’.

        Really, what’s there to report?

        Everything in that post about Perez is already out there, on the public record. Any Marylander who was paying attention in ’06 will likely remember it, too.

        Maryland’s governor is chosen in federal-level midterm years, and since the state is out of play for the presidency, the big moves in state-level offices–and the bare-knuckle fights they entail–happen outside the national spotlight (for better or worse).

        So, I appreciate the regard, but that wasn’t exactly my big Rachel Priest act from “Criminal Case.” All I did was distill a lot of known information into a couple of paragraphs and tack on my own $0.02.

        • “Darkangle” you just reported & distilled more information on Perez than I have ever seen or ever been reported on…

          I’m looking at you FOXNews…why can’t their smart talking-head or scantily clad pin-up news-readers or so-called ‘journalists’ ever look into-report any of that…???

          • With O’Reilly gone, I don’t know who at Fox will pick up the investigative baton. Eric Bolling? Please.

            I guess there’s Hannity (last of the old guard), and Tucker unearths some interesting things here and there…but I’m not sure they have the persistence of someone like “Officer O’Reilly” (as Dennis Miller would call him). He had a huge platform for things like “Kate’s Law” and other grass roots issues, and used it well.

          • All of that info on Perez–all of it–is on his Wikipedia page (though spun positively, of course). Go look.

            No, really. GO LOOK.

            Knock the press all you want for being too lazy to even look at WickedPedia. Fine. I agree with you there.

            But please…by my count, I’m more Jayson Blair than Edward Murrow here.
