The Democratic Party stands for high taxes, gun control, abortion, massive regulations, socialism, and open borders. This stuff appeals to crazy people, communists, and the unemployed, but for most working Americans, these things go against everything this country stands for.
Democrats have lots of theories why they can’t seem to connect with the people of middle America, like they’re all racist and stupid, but Tom Perez has a different idea. According to the DNC chair, the problem is too many Americans go to church on Sunday and are force-fed an anti-abortion message.
Earlier this week DNC head Tom Perez spoke at a Washington, DC event called: “The Court In Crisis: What’s Next For Progressives After Kavanaugh.” That already sounds unhinged, but Perez knocked the door clean off with his take on why Democrats aren’t getting their message through to rural voters.
“We all have to make sure that we’re fluent in what’s happening across our ecosystem, so that we can come to each other’s defense, because we need to build a bigger orchestra. They’ve had a big orchestra for some time, and they’ve got a megaphone to amplify it, whether it’s Sinclair at a local level, Fox at a national level. I’ve learned this from the outreach we’ve done at the DNC,” said Perez.
It is Perez’s opinion that Republicans are able to reach voters because the conservative news outlets Sinclair and Fox broadcast their message. Did he forget about every single other media outlet in the country? All the major networks, most major newspapers, the entire entertainment industry, CNN, and MSNBC are all essentially the propaganda ministry for the Democratic Party.
If the Democrats can’t reach voters with near total media domination, maybe they have a crappy message. Perez, however, feels it’s more of an issue with religion.
“Why aren’t we penetrating, they ask. And I had someone in northwestern Wisconsin tell me, ‘You know what? For most of the people I know, their principal sources of information are Fox News, their NRA newsletter, and the pulpit on Sunday, and it should come as a surprise to no one that our message doesn’t penetrate,” Perez said.
To drive home his point that people going to church is a problem for Democrats, Perez spelled it out.
“It should come as a surprise to no one that that person has elevated the issue, of course, to the top, because that person on the pulpit is saying, ‘ignore everything else that this person has done and is doing. We have to focus on one issue of Roe vs Wade.’ And people buy it because that’s their only source,” Perez said.
Perez may not be the most eloquent or coherent speaker, but he’s clearly got a problem that people go to church and are taught that life is sacred. Roe v. Wade is the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, and Perez is appalled by the idea that people learn in church that killing unborn babies as a matter of convenience is a sin.
Don’t worry, Perez has a solid strategy to do something about this.
“So as we move forward here we’ve got to talk about these substantive ideas, but we’ve got to talk about a broader communication strategy. We’ve got to talk about other reforms that will enable us to elect Democrats up and down the ticket so that we can actually have the capacity to implement them,” Perez finished.
With this last statement, Perez puts it into context that the Democrats have to devise a strategy to get people to stop listening to the church on issues like abortion. He straight-up said that as long as people get their information from the church, the Democrats will never get through to them.
It’s fair to say that Perez’s bold plan is to find a way to subvert the teachings of the church. And let’s be honest here, Perez isn’t talking about Muslims, Jews, or Scientologists, he’s targeting evangelical Christians.
Democrats can’t connect with many voters because they stand for immoral, unconstitutional, and unAmerican things. Trying to get people to abandon their religion isn’t likely to bring more voters over to the Democratic Party freak show.
