While the media tries to highlight tension between factions within the GOP, the DNC is having YUGE problems of its own.
Problems, we should say, beyond the colossal beat-down the Democrats took across State and Federal politics in the last eight years.
Thier party has been in free-fall. And their solution?
Are they ‘triangulating’ back to the center?
Nope. They’re doubling down even FURTHER left.
If you want to be a Democrat, there will now be a legitimate litmus test on the abortion issue.
This means the PARTY has assumed that they have the right to dictate what the conscience of their members are and are not allowed to speak on.
Whether they realize it or not, that puts them in line with the Canadian Liberal party, who has kicked out members of his own party who refuse to toe the party line on the same issue.
In Canada? There are literally NO laws governing abortion. (The only OTHER two countries with no abortion laws are China and North Korea.)
The courts struck down one law as unconstitutional, telling the government they had a year to put together a better one. But they were too cowardly to do so.
A woman could begin labor and legally proceed with an abortion, simply because there are no laws.
And the governing party in Canada forbids anyone in their own party from saying ‘we should limit that at least a LITTLE bit.’
This is a big deal. It would mean that Democrats would subjugate their conscience to the will of their organization.
(And they accuse the RIGHT of being totalitarian!)
It would mean if a Democrat were persuaded by researcher and activist Obianuju Ekeocha that the West’s attempt to coerce Africa into adopting Western views on sex and contraception is in reality Western Cultural Imperialism by rich leftists like Soros etc, they would be forced to choose between suppressing their conscience or leaving the party.
Have the Democrats really become so power-mad that they believe they own the right to their members’ consciences?
And they scold the REST of us about things they think are ‘Un-American’?
For all their talk about NAZIs, wasn’t the biggest problem with the Nazis the fact that even those who took issue with the policies or orders were expected to check their conscience at the door.
Did the ‘I only followed orders’ defense help anyone at the Nuremberg Trials?
Then why the HELL are the Democrats following THAT template?
Here is the Abortion-Activist Democrat announcement (Full story HERE):
DNC Chair Tom Perez described abortion as a “fundamental value” Friday in response to a backlash from abortion activists, according to the Daily Caller. The pro-abortion group NARAL attacked DNC leaders last week for supporting a candidate with a pro-life voting record.
“Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” Perez said Friday in a statement. “That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state. That is why I will be convening women leaders from across the country in the next week on how we can make sure our Democratic candidates and elected leaders are living up to these fundamental values.”
And here is the Pushback from Pro-Life Democrats (Full context Here).
Anti-abortion Democrats are firing back at members of their party’s platform committee for supporting language that would call for repealing a law preventing the use of federal funds for abortion.
The language inserted in the Reproductive Health section of the Democratic Party’s draft platform for the first time calls for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, a pillar of the anti-abortion-rights movement.
