The man in charge of the voting rights division of the DoJ, who refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers for threatening White voters with clubs outside a Philadelphia polling place in 2008, Tom Perez - the DNC's new chair, said “Republican leaders and President Trump don't give a sh*t about the people they were trying to hurt,” referencing the GOP’s plan to replace Obamacare.
Welcome to the new Democrat National Committee; a group appealing to the caustic lowest common denominator.
Even though Perez was lambasted for similar comments earlier in the week, he and fellow Democrat leaders have turned a deaf ear to their rank-and-file who are tired of the caustic rhetoric going so far as to transforming the "don't give a sh*t" talking point into a DNC battle cry. They have, additionally, created “Democrats Give a Sh*t about People” t-shirt for fund-raising purposes. The shirt sells for $30.
Again, this is the radical, irreverent, caustic, arrogant Progressive Left of the Democrat Party. They are a minority within the larger Democrat Party. Even in elected office they are a minority, numbering less than one-third in the House and even less in the Senate.
This begs the question: Why do real Democrats put up with their bullsh*t? Isn't it time for the adults in the Democrat Party to step up and take back their party; take back the leadership positions in the federal government; start confronting the anarchists within their own political sphere?!
