The Democratic Part is moving more to the extreme left, by not supporting pro-life and pro-religious faith Democrats.

Last week Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez announced that pro-lifers are not welcome in his party.

If you do not support abortion on demand (even in the late stages) and gay marriage, you are not welcome in the Democratic party.

Dissent among Democrats is not permitted.

The Democratic Party Stance on Abortion 

fuzz81 --- 1 years ago -

That article has nothing to do with the OPs claim.

Provide your source or its a lie.

Try the internet.

It's there.

JW didn't read the opinion piece.

It has nothing to do with the OP.

Edited to Add: It's a Breitbart piece, among others.

Yeah, on the blaze and breitbart ????????

Those are russian propaganda fake news sites 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 1 years ago -

That's right. You only believe news if it comes from CNN and MSNBC.

You oughta check out Perez's own words. 

fuzz81 --- 1 years ago -

I guess you missed this part: "If you demand fealty on every single issue, then it?s a challenge"

Actually, I did read the piece and it's about abortion which is what Rayof hope wrote about. You need to read it again.

I can see why you would be upset. The Democratic Party is becoming quite radical (My government professor described radicals as individuals with political beliefs that are to the left of liberals).

Radicals are on the opposite side of what is called reactionaries. He said reactionaries want to return to the way it use to be while radicals want to destroy all traditions and create new. A reactionary might want to return to the Constitution, and a radical would like to rewrite the Constitution.

Bill Clinton sided with pro-abortion proponents, but he described abortion as something that should be seldom used. Clinton never condemned Democrats opposed to abortion.

The new Democratic National Chairman is moving the party farther left of Clinton. He says that Democrats unwilling to accept abortion on demand (even in the late term), cannot be a Democrat.

His words......."Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman's right to make her own choices about her body and her health," DNC Chair Perez said, as the HuffPost reported. "That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state." His comments came after Democrats officially supported a pro-life Democrat against a Republican, against his wishes.

The Democrats are now the radical party of intolerance.

There are still a few moderate Democrats, and I can see their concern.

Pro Life Democrats

Going to lose all these folks if your correct -

sorry - you are - mea culpa

By the way, I was involved with the Democratic Party until I told them I was pro-life. They let me know I was not welcome.

Many Mexican Catholics could not vote for Wendy Davis (Abbot ended up with close to 40% of the latino vote). Even with the controversy over the wall, Democrats will not be able to woo Latinos with a party moving left.

I understand the need for Democrats to hide their intolerance.

Do you believe everything you see on the internet?

Honestly, go to a Democratic Party meeting with a pro-life T-shirt. Reality will appear.

There are also the other obvious examples. How many liberal speakers are being banned from college campuses because of violence threatened by conservatives? It's not happening.

Liberalism is becoming a synonym for intolerance. Read the News !!!

My reading of the news shows no shortage of intolerance from either side.

My joke has always been I am not republican or democrat, I am a catholic.

Trying to find a candidate that is 100% consistent with my Catholicism is impossible. It is always a compromise.

That said, and fyi since nixon's second term I have voted Republican with the exception of Jimmy Carter ( a navy thing) and independent in the last election.

My point in the link, is contrary to the O/P there are, has been, and will continue to be pro life democrats. And if they decide, for whatever reason to support democratic candidates they will gladly take their votes. 

Dorothy Parker --- 1 years ago -

Most people are moderate and don't lock step with any political party, they vote with the one most closely aligned with their beliefs.

If you are a one issue voter and that one ssue is abortion, then you probably wouldn't vote for a pro-choice candidate.

This isn't rocket science. 

Dorothy Parker --- 1 years ago -

And why would someone wear a pro-life shirt to any meeting that wasn't a pro-life rally? That seems to be stirring the pot from the get-go.

Like wearing a pro-choice T-shirt to a Knights of Columbus mtg. Why would someone do that? 

RayofHope --- 1 years ago -

I'm not questioning that you are sincere. But, I have seen the intolerance of Democrats toward the pro-life stance. And, it has become glaring with the election of the DNC chair. He has brought to the spotlight what has been hidden for many years.

What got me involved in the Democratic party was a belief (many years before Obama) that they (Democrats) would bring socialized medicine (Which I have always championed).

My wife and I both leaned toward the Democratic Party. But the Democrats do seem to be much stricter ideologs. If you do not agree with everything they preach, you are not welcome.
