Ten years ago, Americans elected a President who ridiculed Republicans for clinging to their bibles and guns. Six years ago, the Democrat Party voted to remove God from their party platform. Now, the Democrat Party leader, Tom Perez, is at it again—suggesting that Republicans need to stop “buying” what they hear in church and get on board with the Democrat Party.
Is criticizing the beliefs of Christian Americans really a pathway to more votes for Democrats?
On Wednesday, at an event for the leftist group, Demand Justice, DNC Chair Tom Perez warned the crowd: “And we all have to make sure that we’re fluent in what’s happening across our ecosystem so we can come to each other’s defense because we need to build a bigger orchestra. They’ve had a big orchestra for some time and they’ve got the megaphones to amplify it, whether it’s Sinclair at the local level or Fox at the national level.”
“It should come as a surprise to no-one that that person has elevated the issue of courts to the top because 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 vs. Wade.’ And people buy it because that’s their only source.”
Perez continued, “I’ve learned this from the outreach we’ve done at the DNC. ‘Why aren’t we penetrating,’ I ask? And I had someone in northwest Wisconsin tell me: ‘You know what? For most of the people I know, their principle sources of information are Fox News, the NRA newsletter and the pulpit on Sunday.’ And it should come as a surprise to no-one that our message doesn’t penetrate.”
