The chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, has a problem with Christians. He thinks they are stupid.
Speaking on December 6 at a liberal gathering in Washington, D.C., Perez appeared unhinged as he delivered a whining speech over the inability of Democrats to get their message across. He identified three obstacles: “Fox News, their NRA newsletter, and the pulpit on Sunday.”
Perez then unloaded on the clergy and the faithful, making a veiled stab at President Trump. “That person on the pulpit is saying ‘ignore everything else that this person has done and is doing. We have to focus on one issue of Roe v. Wade.’ And people buy it because that’s their only source.”
It bothers Perez to no end that practicing Christians care about the fate of the unborn. News Flash: We think for ourselves!
This is not the first time that Perez’s passion for abortion has sent him off the rails. Last year he said, “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health. That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.”
Perez’s statement was too much for Democratic commentator Mark Shields. After quoting the remark just cited, Shields said, “The Democratic Party, which is a pro-choice party, would now become the ‘no choice’ party.”
Perez’s demeaning comments are not going to sit well with millions of Americans.
