Free speech foe Perez beats out Muslim Brotherhood Congressman Ellison for DNC Chair

Free speech foe Perez beats out Muslim Brotherhood Congressman Ellison for DNC Chair, Jihad Watch

In July 2012, Perez — then the assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, was asked by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ):

Will you tell us here today that this administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?

Perez could have simply answered yes, and maybe even cited the First Amendment. Instead, Perez refused to answer the question directly. Franks persisted, ultimately asking it four times.

Perez at one point responded that it was a “hard question.” He simply refused to affirm that the Obama Justice Department would not attempt to criminalize criticism of Islam.

So this was the choice for Democrats: a Congressman with many connections to an organization dedicated in its own words to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within” or a foe of the First Amendment right to the freedom of speech. The foe of the freedom of speech won.

That’s today’s Democratic Party.

“Former Labor Secretary Tom Perez elected DNC chair,” by Ryan Struyk and MaryAlice Parks, ABC News, February 25, 2017:

Former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez has been elected the next chair of the Democratic National Committee, grabbing the reins of the political wing of the party and emerging as a key figure in the party’s opposition to President Donald Trump’s agenda.

More than 400 party insiders gathered in Atlanta this weekend to cast their ballots. The former Obama appointee will try to rally the party of Democrats still reeling from its presidential election defeat and crippled by down-ballot losses across the country over the last decade.

Many in the party’s progressive wing had rallied around Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, expressing their frustration with the status quo of the party. They felt strongly that Ellison better identified with the grassroots movement growing across the country in opposition to Trump.

Perez had fallen one short shy of victory in the first round of voting.

“We need a chair who can not only take the fight to Donald Trump, make sure we talk about our positive message,” Perez told the crowd before the vote. “We also need a chair who can lead turnaround and change the culture of the Democratic Party and DNC.”

The next chair will be key in trying to unify and rally a party still reeling from its presidential election defeat and crippled by down-ballot losses across the country over the last decade.

“We’re in this mess because we lost not one election but a thousand elections,” Ellison said before the vote. “We gotta go to the grassroots, ya’ll. Unity is essential. We gotta walk out of here with unity.”…

    In a FOIA request I made to the Obama DoJ on collusion between the Department of Justice and the Muslim Brotherhood groups, the documents I received show the DoJ operating as errand boy and de facto legal arm of Islamic supremacists in America. The servile demeanor of the Civil Rights Division officials and the demanding condescension of Muslim Brotherhood operatives was astonishing.
    Letters from Perez touted all of the DoJ’s actions on behalf of Muslims, including a suit against the city of Lilburn, Georgia for resisting the expansion of a mosque, and amicus participation calling for dismissal of a suit brought by Murfreesboro, Tennessee patriots against an Islamic supremacist mosque there.

    Now he has the whole if the Democrat Party behind him, and the money that comes with it. There is a collective sigh of relief that he beat the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Congressman Ellison coming from the last vestiges of any reason at all in the Democrat Party, i.e. Dershowitz, but how really different is Perez from Ellison?

    Perez serves at the pleasure of the Islamic supremacists. And just to prove my point, the first thing that Perez did when he won was announce that Ellison was his Deputy Chair — and then he handed the mic over to Ellison, who proceeded to make a long speech.
