Greenwald on the DNC chair race

See this article here. The battle between the establishment, corporate Dems and the progressive wing of the Party is still going strong. That's why the corporate Dems chose Perez to challenge Ellison for the chair of the DNC, to be decided this Saturday. Perez is part of the status quo that doesn't want to shake things up. Hence they don't want a progressive like Ellison who will do just that, favoring policies conducive to the people, not the oligarchs.

Another issue is that Ellison is a Muslim. And a key oligarchic Dem financier hates Muslims. He called Ellison an anti-Semite and he vowed to veto Ellison's candidacy. This oligarch wants profiling and surveillance of Muslims in the US. He was a big fan of both Clintons, and spent considerable social time with them. And the corporate Dems really want his money to keep flowing to them.

This Saturday should prove once and for all if the Dem Party is worth reforming and redeeming. My guess is that it is not.
