Tammy Bruce appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show last night and offered a unique analysis of the current state of the Democratic Party. Their conversation began with a viral moment from a recent forum for potential new chairs for the DNC. One candidate, a white woman from Idaho suggested as chair it would be her job to shut down other white people.
The Daily Caller reported:
Sally Boynton Brown, a white woman running for chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Monday that if she is chosen to lead the party her job will be to “shut other white people down.”
“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt,” Brown said during a DNC candidate forum.
Brown, the executive director of the Idaho Democratic Committee, is running for the chair position against six other candidates, including three African-American candidates and one Hispanic, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez.
“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, ‘oh, no, I’m not prejudice; I’m a Democrat; I’m accepting,’” Brown bellowed during the forum, which was hosted by MSNBC’s Joy Reid.
Bruce described this as an example of the left eating its own and suggested it’s further proof that they’ve learned nothing from the election. You can watch the whole exchange below:
Tammy touched on the left’s continuing obsession with identity politics in a recent column for the Washington Times:
This divided nation
After everything that has happened in the last year, the Democrats still have learned nothing. Their answer to the election of Donald Trump? A Women’s March that does nothing to save a deluded party still cannibalizing itself.
Liberal leadership remains obsessed with imagery instead of solutions, working overtime to not face the fact that America has now rejected the scourge of political correctness and identity politics, both of which liberalism requires in order to survive.
With the media coverage surrounding the so-called women’s marches on Saturday you’d think we were watching some sort of organic, spontaneous uprising, much like, oh, the tea party. But it wasn’t. There has been excellent commentary in the days that followed exposing the fact that the march wasn’t about women at all; it was about leftist politics. And group therapy.
Yes, many, many people came out. Likely a million across the country. And that’s a good thing, but not surprising. For cities that Hillary Clinton won overwhelmingly, like Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., of course dejected locals turn out. When I was a community organizer on the left, we had great success in liberal cities.
