The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is falling apart. Social justice agitators demanded the removal of most of the leadership for not being “diverse” enough:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is still dealing with the fallout from the mass exodus of staffers last month due to the growing concerns of the committee’s devotion to diversity.
DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL) is reportedly looking for a new executive director and seeking members’ help in her search in hopes that it shows the frustrated black and Latino members that she takes diversity seriously.
“We are moving quickly to fill this role, but we will do so in a way that honors the values of the most diverse House Democratic Caucus in U.S. history,” Bustos wrote in a letter obtained by Politico. “I look forward to hearing your ideas and suggestions.”
Jaslow’s departure triggered a domino effect with many senior staffers leaving their positions. One lawmaker called the mass shakeup a “Monday Night Massacre.”
And in the next 10 hours, much of the senior staff was out: Jared Smith, the communications director and another Bustos ally; Melissa Miller, a top DCCC communications aide; Molly Ritner, political director; Nick Pancrazio, deputy executive director; and Van Ornelas, the DCCC’s director of diversity.
The media tries very hard to present a united front in public, but behind the scenes, an ugly power struggle is taking place in the Democrat Party. What’s happening at the DCCC is one facet of this struggle; another facet is the way the Democrat Party activists have turned on Joe Biden
The crippling of the DCCC could not come at a worse time for the Democrats. The party needs that organ to be functional given that they have committed everything to trying to unseat Trump in 2020. The social justice warrior obsession with with purges and virtue signalling continues to be a major millstone around the party’s collective neck.
