The Democratic National Committee unity tour continues to look like a struggle bus. DNC Chair Tom Perez was booed during their stop in Maine, immediately putting a wrench in that whole “unity” thing. They booed Perez again once Bernie Sanders came onstage, and the Vermont senator did not bother to defend him.
Now, pro-abortion groups like NARAL are decrying the next stops on the campaign.
The DNC is expected to hold a rally Thursday night in Nebraska with Omaha mayoral candidate Heath Mello. Yet, after a little digging, NARAL and liberal media outlets discovered that eight years ago Mello voted for legislation in the Nebraska State Senate that required women seeking abortions to first undergo an ultrasound. NARAL Pro-Choice President Ilyse Hogue demanded that the DNC cancel the event because it would be seen as a “throwback tour” for women.
“The actions today by the DNC to embrace and support a candidate for office who will strip women – one of the most critical constituencies for the party – of our basic rights and freedom is not only disappointing, it is politically stupid. Today’s action make this so-called ‘fight back tour’ look more like a throw back tour for women and our rights."
How extreme are these groups that they immediately reject a candidate who dares to vote for a bill that would hint toward life in the womb?But that's a whole other issue. For now, it's been fun following this train wreck of a unity tour.
