The far left base of the Democratic Party is demanding that all Democrats be 100 percent against Trump 100 percent of the time. Anyone who isn’t will be targeted for punishment and or removal.
The latest target is Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
The Washington Times reports:
Progressives target Sen. Joe Manchin, demand removal from Democratic leadership
Citing his vote confirming Jeff Sessions as attorney general and his outspoken support of President Trump’s fossil fuel-based energy policy, powerful liberal groups on Thursday demanded that Sen. Joe Manchin be removed from his post in Senate Democratic leadership.
Nearly a quarter-million progressives signed a petition, delivered to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday morning, slamming Mr. Manchin, West Virginia Democrat, and arguing he no longer represents the values of the party.
“The idea that Manchin is considered a Senate Democratic leader is both morally disturbing and politically toxic for a Democratic Party with millions in the street demanding its members stand united in opposing Trump’s hateful and corrupt agenda,” said Charles Chamberlain, executive director of the liberal PAC Democracy for America, one of the groups that organized the petition. “Joe Manchin has spent the last few months aiding and abetting the Trump administration, removing him from Democratic leadership should be a no brainer.”
Mr. Manchin currently serves as the party’s vice chairman of policy and communications in the Senate. But he’s often clashed with his own party on energy policy and other issues, and has been by far the most supportive Democrat in the chamber when it comes to the Trump administration’s cabinet posts.
These witch hunts by the far left will continue.
They’re trying to send a message to all Democrats. Obstruct Trump or you will be targeted next.
