“Some progressives have suggested that this purge is intended to divide the party. Why else remove these Bernie Sanders and Keith Ellison supporters while choosing to appoint people as controversial as Donna Brazile and corporate lobbyists, and on the eve of the DNC’s Unity Commission meetings in Las Vegas. That the purpose of this purge is to fuel a so-called #DemExit and drive progressives out of the Democratic Party. Although the party would be smaller and weaker, this would also make it easier for the corporate Democratic establishment to control the party’s rules and choice of nominees for offices all across the country.
Let’s not take the bait by giving up on our efforts to reclaim the Democratic Party. Now is the time to fight back!”
