The Bernie Wing Is Starting To Make Its Peace With Tom Perez
DNC members poked Berniecrats in the eye. Do they care?

Bobby Jindal once said that the Republican Party is the “stupid party”. The same can be said about the Democratic Party now that Tom Perez is choosing to be chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

We shouldn’t expect anything serious the party of the sugar daddies.

Martese Chism, a board member of the National Nurses United ― one of the most progressive American labor unions ― traveled from Chicago to support Ellison with her union. She was furious.

“The DNC voting members crushed us again like they did with Bernie. They didn’t listen to the people, they didn’t even listen to the applause in the room,” Chism said.

Chism said she will remain active in efforts to resist Trump’s agenda, but she is more likely to focus her energy on groups like Our Revolution than the Democratic Party.

“They want to keep the status quo and they want the left to follow them ― I don’t know what we’re going to do,” she said.

Chism was unimpressed with Ellison’s appointment as deputy chair.

“It’s just a made-up title,” she said. “You think giving him a little title is going to please us? It’s not. It’s a slap in the face.”
