Cenk Uygur from The Young Turks explains who Third Way are and their goal of picking Democratic candidates who are beholden to corporations and lobbyists. My belief is the same as his and as Mike Figueredo from The Humanist Report: The DNC is no longer the party of the people. It is owned by corporations now. If the party can be reformed, it has to be through true progressive candidates who are willing to turn away from corporations and big money and represent the working class.
I only became aware of Justice Democrats a few days ago, but I’ve joined them. Their goal is to replace corporatist Democrats with progressives who will not accept money from corporations and will stand up for the working class.
Corporatist Democrats refuse to acknowledge the facts. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, tells you how Third Way is trying to screw progressives. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go
“Hoping to help Democrats recover from what it has dubbed the party’s “worst electoral position since the Civil War,” a centrist think tank is launching a $20 million campaign to study how the party lost its way and offer a new economic agenda for moving forward.
The think tank, Third Way, on Tuesday is set to launch “New Blue,” a campaign to help Democrats reconnect with the voters who have abandoned the party. The money will be spent to conduct extensive research, reporting and polling in Rust Belt states that once formed a Blue Wall, but which voted for president-elect Donald Trump last November.
The goal is to help start a top-to-bottom rethink for the Democratic Party — tossing out the old model that assumed Democrats from state legislatures on up to the Oval Office could count on winning majorities, simply because of the country’s changing demographics. The think tank plans to launch a deep dive study of blue-to-red districts like Macomb County, Michigan, where voters flipped from supporting President Barack Obama four years ago to voting for Trump.”
