That leftwing dynamic duo comprised of the frenetic and rather foul-mouthed Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), along with that self-professed Socialist, and somewhat senile, Bernie Sanders have now apparently teamed for a nationwide tour which is really nothing more than a string of cross-country vitriolic attacks on President Donald Trump and the Republican Party. They kicked off their imbecilic little roadshow this past Monday night in Portland, Maine. This entire exercise reeks of desperation as the Democrat Party goes about trying to reconstitute itself after eight rather disastrous years of Obama.
And it was as the night got underway that a rather wild-eyed Perez was heard yelling at those in attendance, “Those Republican leaders and President Trump don’t give a s**t about the people they were trying to hurt.” Perez criticized Trump for his fiscal year 2018 budget proposal. He went on to proclaim, “They call it a skinny budget. I call it a s**tty budget because you know what… budgets are moral documents.” He seemed somewhat oblivious to the disconnect in his use of profanity while speaking of morality and the likely effect it may have among some voters in red states, whom he claims are his intended audience.
Perez went on to say, “We need to continue to cause good trouble, and that good trouble includes making sure we call out this budget.” And then he proceeded to criticize President Trump’s stated desires to repeal and replace Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act, which he said, “has been a lifesaver, not a job killer.” And he concluded by saying, “Our strength in our nation lies in our compassion as a nation.” The hyperactive Perez was then followed on stage by Bernie who then proceeded to deliver what was nothing less than hardcore socialist message to the largely millennial audience in his nutty grandfatherly manner.
Bernie began his leftist spiel saying, “Our job is to bring millions of people into the political process who, today, do not vote or do not participate in any way.” He went on to say, “Our job is to radically transform the Democratic Party into a fifty-state party and a party which does not continue to ignore half of the states in our country, including some of the poorest states in America.” Echoing a theme from his ultimately unsuccessful presidential campaign he added, “Our job is to create a democratic Democrat party, a grassroots party where decisions are made from the bottom on up, not from the top on down.”
It was then that Bernie asked the crowd, “Can you imagine the Republican leadership wanting to give tax breaks to millionaires?” Then he went on to make the blatantly dishonest claim that Republicans want to drop nutrition programs. And in what I have to assume was only a rhetorical question, Bernie asked the crowd, “What kind of morals do these people have?” Rhetorical because as we all know, politicians of Bernie’s persuasion essentially have no morals, therefore they have no right whatsoever to call into question anyone else’s morals. These leftist nutjobs will say absolutely anything in their effort to regain their power.
Anyway, Bernie would go on to tell his many mind-numbed followers there in attendance, “It is not acceptable to me. It is not acceptable to you that we remain the only major country on earth not to guarantee health care.” Bernie told the crowd that was why he would soon be introducing legislation calling for a single payer Medicare-style health care system. And Bernie concluded by saying, “You don’t drain the swamp when you include more billionaires in your cabinet than any president in the history of our country.” No of course not, it makes much more sense to include a bunch of academia types who have never done anything their entire life!
Look, everyone is familiar with the net result of having had Obama in office for eight long years. The Democrat Party has been essentially decimated and this nation experienced what was the most anemic period of economic growth in the history of our country. And the effect on the DNC is that it is now rapidly approaching what can only be describes as critical mass with, oddly enough, Bernie appearing as the great white hope with his offering up a near endless stream of all manner of free stuff. Bernie’s appeal is that he comes across as being more authentic than most on his side, but really he’s nothing more than just another dim-bulb Socialist.
The Democrat Party is starting to look like an ‘Old Folks Home.’ Yes, they are in need of an infusion of the young rioters from the liberal campuses into their leadership positions. It is one thing to bang on a tray for ‘Made in America’ applesauce, and another thing to smear ketchup all over your young face, screaming in campus meetings about how badly minorities are treated in these EEOC-governed offices with 90% minority workforces or how bad women have it when 51 percent of managers in the U.S. are women who accommodate their fellow baby-vacationing, mom-clique employees in taking off a ton of time while maintaining their job security.
When you get right down to it ‘progressivism’ is really nothing but another name for communism. When it comes to those on the left the nomenclature of the day really doesn’t matter. Don't let these communists like Bernie Sanders and deranged and vulgar Tom Perez succeed in taking away your freedoms that generations of veterans, our fathers and grandfathers, our mothers and grandmothers all fought for. These two communists have no values, no integrity and no patriotism and definitely no love for the American people or our country. When one chooses to vote for a Democrat what they are really doing is voting for bringing about the end to their freedoms.
And while I would like to think that the further left they go, the more support they will come to lose, sadly that tends not to be the case or there would be no Democrats in public office. They are out there pimping a system of government that has failed in every single nation that instituted it. This coming not long after they completely removed the word "God" from their charter, and their support for an illegal system of sanctuary cities where they openly harbor criminals and oppose law enforcement efforts to enforce the laws they swore an oath to defend and enforce. And yet there are people who willing vote for those who support such policies.
