'Diversity' at it's best
« on: July 31, 2019, 05:03:42 AM »
It's been clear over at least the last couple of years that the Democrat party is lurching further and further towards the hard left, but this latest incident is just sheer lunacy. Alison Jaslow, the former executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee resigned earlier this week after Democrat Reps. Vicente González and Filemon Vela of Texas called for her resignation over the weekend. What was her crime I hear you ask, what did this 2 time combat veteran, highly respected member of the party and strong advocate for the rights of all veterans do? Absolutely nothing, she was sacrificed on the altar of diversity so that she could be replaced by a person of colour.

Her departure came after Reps. Vicente González and Filemon Vela of Texas called for her resignation over the weekend.

"The DCCC is now in complete chaos," they said in a joint statement to Politico on Sunday.

"The single most immediate action that Cheri Bustos can take to restore confidence in the organization and to promote diversity is to appoint a qualified person of color, of which there are many, as executive director at once."

Her statement on her resignation shows that she has more honour and integrity that most of the rest of the party. After all, the 2 representatives who called for her resignation wouldn't offer to stand down so that they could be replaced by someone who is more inclusive.

Quote
"When I was in eighth grade, I decided that my life would be dedicated to serving my country," Jaslow said. "My commitment to the mission, our country and the people who commit their lives to serving it is unwavering.

"And, sometimes selfless service means having the courage to take a bow for the sake of the mission -- especially when the stakes are so high."

Everyone knows it's not discrimination when used against a white person. Or is that a person of non-colour?

Looks like it's a full purge, communications director Jared Smith, comms aide Melissa Miller, political director Molly Ritner, deputy executive director Nick Pancrazio and director of diversity Van Ornelas have all quit/been forced out/delete as appropriate as well.
