I am still trying to process that the black clergy



Thought we were all about electing Democrats. Nina admits she is running third party under our name.

It’s official! Sen. Nina Turner is running for Congress. She’s running for the seat vacated by Rep. Marcia Fudge, who Joe Biden has chosen as secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The People’s Party isn’t on the ballot in Ohio yet so she will have to run as a Democrat, but we can’t think of anyone better to win that seat and bring a friend of the People’s Party to Congress.

https://peoplesparty.org/nina-turner-congress/




We are not The Peoples Party, we are The Democratic Party.

Let us be honest here, she is an admitted Stein supporter. She was asked to be Stein's VP. She campaigned for Jill.

I will give her points for honesty. She says outright that she is not a Democrat and a member of a third party.

These are her own words, not mine.

On DU we support Democrats. She has clearly stated she is not one. Huge mistake on her part. Huge mistake.

Trashed our President, our VP, our Rep Clyburn, & used our Party for her own publicity stunt.

She will leave after Aug 3rd, back home to Maryland, count her cash haul & rage on against the Democratic Party again & again.
While not uttering a word against the Republicans whose only goal is to crush our American Democracy.

It's not a stretch to see where she finally lands.
She's been there for a long time.

We don't "Have to support" her.

We just can't "Bash Her".

Fair enough. there's always the trash and ignore button that should keep me from any temptation.

at nothing to defeat her because she's the only one who's right, everyone else is corrupt and not progressive and blah blah blah blah. Waiting for it.

But of course anyone who cannot see Nina "I'M RIGHT!" Turner's greatness as True Progressive Savior of the People from Both-Sides Half-Bowls of Shit are too stupid to understand. Maybe they have Stockholm syndrome. Heard that one before.

That is a joke, correct?

No sarcasm tag, hard to tell these days.

OTOH.

Tina Turner, where ever she preformed was a phenomenal talent. Sorry you never saw that.

Yes. And I happily received my absentee ballot in the mail today, heavily filled in my Shontel Brown circle with my pen, and joyfully went to the post office to mail it, pronto.

It would be horrific for Louis Stokes, Stephanie Tubbs-Jones and Marcia Fudge to be followed by THAT woman, who was so against Hillary Clinton that she campaigned for Jill Stein - not against Trump, but against Hillary - and so vicious against Joe Biden that she said voting for him was like eating a bowl of sh*t, and she yet has the narcissistic audacity to temporarily call herself a Democrat so that she can continue to spew her divisiveness in the House and make herself the MTG of the left.

The winner will replace Marcia Fudge, now the HUD Secretary.

I don't believe this district will ever go red again, it's one of the bluest in the party. That's why Brown MUST win, for cryin' out loud.
