It is time to stop making excuses about Democratic underperformance. Activist Danielle Moodie laid down the gauntlet in no uncertain terms.
Danielle Moodie has a message for the Democratic Party
Citizens who vote for Democrats are fed-up. There is no technicality here. Democrats are in total control of Congress and the Presidency. They can choose to exert their authority or consent to the Jim Crow rules of the Senate. So far, they’ve done the latter under the pretext that Manchin and Sinema obstruct them. While technically accurate, the Democratic leadership could use many coercive acts on those DINOs to force their hand if the Democratic Party was interested in real progress instead of surrendering to the neoliberal faction.
Danielle Moodie appeared on MSNBC discussing abortion and various other issues confronting Americans. Her justifiable disappointment in the Democratic Party was palpable. Ms. Moodie pointed out a truth that should provide that drive Democrats need to do the job.
“Standing up looks like fighting the way that Republicans fight, except we have the truth, right? and facts and the people on our side,” Moodie said. “So we don’t have to lie. We don’t have to steal. We don’t have to act like criminals in the way that Trumpism has consumed the Republican Party.”
But a subsequent statement was even more prescient.
“Mitch McConnell seems to do just fine with the same rules and the same responsibilities that Chuck Schumer has,” Moodie points out. “But all of a sudden, when Democrats are in power, they’re so timid, feckless, and tepid. So I’m saying that now is the time to stop pretending that these are people that you can compromise and work with. They are overturning our democracy, one case at a time.”
It is even worse than what Danielle states. Republicans seem to get more accomplished in the minority than Democrats in the majority. Didn’t they choose the portion of the infrastructure bill they wanted? And what about the latest gun control bill? Republicans do whatever is necessary to get their evil policies passed. It is time for Democrats to do this for their constituents which is the majority of Americans, including a large percentage of Republicans.
