DNC’s Tom Perez joined MSNBC’s Joy Reid to badmouth the Republican Party and President Trump.
Perez is a radical from way back and knows how to get the base fired up before an election. The problem is that no one is buying the sizzle he’s putting out this time. Perez was called out for lying when he was with the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division (see below). Remember the dismissal of voter-intimidation by the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia? Who’s lying, cheating, stealing and suppressing the vote now?
Watch how Perez dramatically claims our “Democracy” is at stake in the next election and that the Republicans will “lie, cheat, steal and suppress the vote” to win in 2020. Perez is pulling his plan out of the Stacey Abrams playbook of suppressing the vote. Nice try, but Americans aren’t buying any of what Perez has to say unless they’re still drinking the Obama Kool-Aid.
Perez has a history of badmouthing Republicans and has a pottymouth to go with it. He said that Republicans don’t “give a sh*t about you” during a rally and then doubled down to curse on-air again. Classy…
Check out Perez projecting like crazy because he knows it’s really the Democrats who will be doing the lying, cheating and stealing in 2020:
“We have to be prepared for more lying, cheating, and stealing because they have an approach to undermining our democracy that is shameful, and that is why we are organizing everywhere, and that is why we are preparing for every eventuality. We won in 2018 across this country in historic manners, but I am very sober about the realities of the upcoming campaign. They will try to suppress the vote wherever they can. They will try to cheat, they will try to weaponize things. That’s what we are preparing for at the DNC, and that is unfortunate. That’s why our democracy is truly on the ballot, and I’m confident we can win, but it saddens me to no end, Joy, because this isn’t who we are. This is not the party of Lincoln. The party of Lincoln has officially died. The party of Trump is not a party that represents our democratic values.”
This from The Spectator in March of 2013: “When the Inspector General of the Department of Justice last week issued a report blistering DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, much attention focused on the IG’s recognition that division chief Perez, under oath, had “not reflected the entire story regarding the involvement of political appointees” in the now-infamous 2009 decision to dismiss voter-intimidation cases against several New Black Panthers in Philadelphia.”
The ironic thing is that the Republicans are historically terrible at doing any of the things Perez is accusing them of. They are terrible at fighting the dirty Democrats. Thank goodness for President Trump and his ability to take it to the Dems.
