Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez released a grotesque, dark statement on July Fourth that tells you just about everything you need to know about the modern priorities of this party, where they stand when it comes to love of country, and what they consider to be the “fundamental values” of the United States. With every passing day, it seems the mask the left has been wearing for more than a generation is slipping off, growing transparent, and showing more and more of the True Face of the Democratic Party to the American people. It’s an ugly picture.
“Nearly two and a half centuries ago, a band of patriots gathered in Philadelphia to declare that ‘all men are created equal,’” Perez wrote. “Our nation has changed dramatically since those words were first written on parchment. Generations of brave Americans – from service members to civil rights activists – have fought to expand the promise of equality for more Americans and move our country forward in its march toward a more perfect union.”
So far, so good, right? Well, if you would like to maintain a positive image of the Democratic Party in your mind, you may want to stop reading. Although we’d have to wonder where you got that image in the first place.
In any case, Perez continues:
As we celebrate our nation’s independence, we recognize that America’s founding promise remains out of reach for too many families. Too many members of our society are still struggling to find a good-paying job or get the health care they need. Too many women, LGBTQ Americans, people of color, and people with disabilities still face inequality and injustice across our society.
Everywhere we look, our most fundamental values are under attack. Thousands of children have been separated from their parents at our southern border. At our highest court, workers’ rights are being taken away, voting rights are under assault, Muslim Americans are being discriminated against for their faith, and women’s right to choose is under threat like never before.
The Democratic Party believes that all people are created equal – no matter who they are, where they come from, who they love, or how they pray. As we celebrate our nation’s independence, Democrats reaffirm our commitment to fighting for the values of inclusion and opportunity for everyone.
So, to hear it from the mouthpiece of the Democratic Party, it is against America’s fundamental values to properly enforce federal immigration law. It is a betrayal of the Founders’ promise if we don’t let unions charge dues of people who DON’T BELONG TO THE UNION. It is against our values to check for ID at the polling plaza. Oh, and as a bonus, we have to let in travelers from terrorist-ravaged nations where there are no vetting checks and we have to (of course) let women have abortions on demand. All in all, this is what America means to a Democrat.
Man oh man, please vote in November.
