DU'ers: "Sanders, Perez unity tour is off to a bumpy start"

You probably won't see this article over to the DU.

(CNN)The DNC's unity tour this week, headlined jointly by party Chairman Tom Perez and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, has gotten off to a rocky start.
When the leader of the Maine Young Democrats asked the crowd what brought them to the rally, the audience erupted in "Bernie" cheers.
The leader followed up by asking, "Maybe you came through because you are curious about the new DNC chairman and the future of Democratic politics?" — and the crowd cut her off with boos.

Tom Perez is trying to use Bernie to help bring the progressives under control. But the joke is on Perez and his Neo-Liberal friends. The people are trying to get the Democratic Leadership to understand that unity doesn't mean "get in line" or "sit down and shut up".
Those that are critical of Sen Sanders for going on this "unity" tour don't know the good Senator. Bernie is preaching the same message he has been preaching for decades. A message the Democratic Party leadership hates. "More power to the People and less power to the Corporations." He hasn't compromised or changed his message.

23. A party with a white straight cis male centric agenda is not the Democratic Party

that has become the big tent that it is.

When did the lefty "YOU WILL NOT DISSENT FROM WHAT OUR LEADER SAYS" minority get the idea that this was progressive?

Because yes, when he talks about "universal issues" he brings up being a white working class man, and contrasts them with mere "identity politics" and "social issues" that don't affect white straight cisgender men.

12. Actually

I need help in understanding WTF is a ''white straight cis male centric agenda".

All these new terms being thrown around these days is confusing like the average person would know.

14. Why, DU-chebags, of course.

Let Camp Weathervane have their poutrage and identity politics twattery...they become less relevant there with every passing day. If the Democratic Party has a future (debatable at this point), it's not with the corporate Third Way, neo-liberal DNC establishment that has failed so spectacularly for the last couple decades.

6. Perez wants Bernie email list. That is the only reason they are including Bernie. They would have

locked him away after the Queen failed if not for that. I hope he holds on it it and refuses to give it to them.

13. I think the Powers That Be that back Clinton and the Neo-Liberals have the NSA

 

on their side. They can get the data anytime they want. The Deep State also sides with the Neo-Liberals, so I hope Bernie doesnt fly in small planes or drive/ride in cars newer than 2015 (that tend to run into trees at high speed)

16. I take it that you are too young to remember the Church Hearings?

Given his age, they can do it old school and never raise suspicion.

9. bless dear, old, Bernie...

" "More power to the People and less power to the Corporations." He hasn't compromised or changed his message. "

...I could be wrong, but isn't Perez just another one of those wall-street-sucking, 1% enabling, Republican-lite, worthless, corporate, fake Democrats?

(Bernie, wash your hands after being around Perez...you wouldn't want any kooties)

15. Yep, that's exactly what Perez is: another status-quo neo-liberal corporatist.

His election to the chairmanship tells you everything you need to know about how much the party learned from what happened last November.

17. Unfortunately, when bernie says "more power to the people" he means "more power to government".
