AS PREDICTED: Progressives Are Already Slamming New DNC Chair Tom Perez

The new DNC chair Tom Perez is part of the Democratic Party establishment. The far left of the party didn’t want him as chair and they’re already finding new reasons to criticize him.

Progressives Slam Tom Perez’s New DNC Transition Team

Several prominent progressive activists are blasting Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez for shunning leaders of the party’s populist wing for his transition advisory committee.

The newly elected party leader named a large number of longtime party insiders to the committee, activists complained, and relatively few progressive leaders and supporters of Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, who was runner-up in the DNC chair race. The activists say the committee appointments show Perez’s DNC is not serious about addressing concerns of the party’s populist wing.

“After looking at that list, it has become abundantly clear that the controlling forces of the Democratic Party want to make the other half of the party suffer,” said Nomiki Konst, a convention delegate for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

“The DNC is not tone-deaf ― it is on a mission to crush the working side of our party,” added Konst, now an investigative reporter for the Young Turks who did not endorse a candidate in the DNC chair race.

That didn’t take long, did it?

Of course, most of the media is skipping this because it’s bad news for Democrats.
