More Proof Of Dim Party Schism
« on: October 06, 2017, 11:43:03 AM »
Note the schism in the party, where they realize they're hated across the nation, yet think an even more Progressive message will resonate beyond their bubble of the Bay Area.
This folks, is proof positive that the party is destined to the sidelines for decades to come.
I bolded the pertinent parts and highlighted the schism in Red

While she singled out Pelosi, Sánchez’s comments were directed at the party’s entire House leadership team, which has been together for a decade. Other members are Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., and Assistant Minority Leader James Clyburn, D-S.C. Pelosi, 77, has been in Congress for 30 years and in the House Democratic leadership for 14 years, including as the first female speaker of the House (2007-11).

The remarks reflect a growing frustration among Democrats, who have been hemorrhaging seats at all levels of government nearly everywhere except California for nearly a decade, that the party doesn’t have a coherent, appealing message. Pelosi is stuck in the middle, seen as too progressive by heartland Democrats in swing districts and too much of a corporatist by progressive Democrats, where much of the party’s current energy lies.

Thus the calls for new leadership.

While Pelosi has a reputation as a San Francisco liberal, progressives feel she isn’t liberal enough. Even though she said she is a longtime supporter of single-payer health care, they want her to back Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All proposal and embrace the party’s progressive wing more boldly.

“The significance (of Sánchez’s comments) is that there is a hunger from the rank-and-file for fresh leadership, for someone who is truly going to represent the zeitgeist of where the party is,” said Murshed Zaheed, political director at Credo Action, the progressive organization based in San Francisco. “That’s where the energy of the party is now.”

The fact many in the democrat party feels Pelosi is not progressive enough is proof positive the party has gone off the rails.

Of course. Because liberalism is white privilege or something.
