#ABrandNewDay in the DNC (The Big Blue Bus) (Tent)
By Allan Hill
Dear Mr. Perez,
Greetings! In introducing myself, Allan Hill, I am a voting member of the Democratic and Independent constituency as well as a social activist with predominantly progressive leanings. Our great Mother Earth demands our and specifically your attention at the moment, and I pray that your listening skills do not have to be questioned.
Being human and having made my share of mistakes in this life, after coming to certain truths concerning my life from a critical examination, I have realized that when people of conscience do nothing when they are called, the earth dies just a little bit more every time.
We are each but mere fibers in this web of life where we are all inextricably connected in one way or another, and whether one chooses to believe it or not, what happens to one community affects all communities. When one segment of society is so marginalized for so long it is society itself that eventually pays the eventual exacting price, as we have witnessed.
The Democratic party, also known as the DNC and ‘The Big Blue Bus’ (Tent), we will see if it holds up to its inclusive namesake. Do not hold your breath on this though, unless you know for sure that you and your colleagues in the organization seriously want to move forward and seriously making it known that the DNC is now a home for all progressives including their beliefs, ideologies, and desires for a more peaceful harmonious and sustainable planet. We have an on-going saying in the #SunriseMovement: ‘Step Up or Step Aside,’ as ‘Changing Everything Takes Everyone.”
Upon this union, we can then do battle with the RNC and the current illegal resident of the white house. If so, it means #ABrandNewDay for the DNC, as we remain mindful of the fact that corruption continues to exists in the Democrat party as it goes by such names and hashtags such as #DemDogs’ and #CorporateDemocrats. If you sincerely want change, look inside and ask yourself whether it is worth it to lose this large of a percentage of humanity, and exactly who are these new Social Democrats?
While the United States purports to spread democracy abroad, it also has a history of actively suppressing political minorities at home. I will not sit on the sidelines, and I did not sign up to watch this kind of behavior from any individual or state of the union regardless of how ‘Deep south’ they are in their personal politics. We will fight them and they will lose. They will lose by succumbing to the same ingrained common truths that Americans hold dear in their hearts as the deep-seated presets of living a good life as well as one can. This is not the same old card game with your uncle any longer. Those days are past.
A new DNC should combine all progressive leanings and social synonyms such as innovative, enlightened, pioneering, reformer, radical, growing, developing and include such notable names as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Senator Bernie Sanders, Sen. Nina Turner, Sen. Tulsi Gabbard, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib and Tamborine Borrelli (WA-CD-10).
Mr. Perez, If the DNC does not change its insidious ways of protecting its old white, stuck-in-the-mud, patriarchal conventions of the past that continue to fail people and present-day demographics across the U.S. and make the Democratic party much more amiable with openness and more transformative points of view and new socially-sustainable ideologies, then we will all be right back at the beginning yet again. All I can add to this is . . . . . . SERIOUSLY?
#ABrandNewDay equaling #ABrandNewCongress means that for once one the #DNC is going to be forced to change, whether it wants to or not. It is finally happening and there is no amount of resistance that will keep you in your parent’s idea of what #EQUALITY should look like. You and I will both pass soon.
Enough! This is sickening to deny half the race, their human ingrained and imprisoned potential. It is a mockery to life itself, as we men have had well over two thousand years to try and get it right, we have failed miserably. We must now learn to unpack our sexual and “racial knapsacks” as we turn and look to the future of more real change as we continue through the door to the 21st. century, as the world will need active global citizens who are engaged in the world, knowledgeable about its diversity and passionate about positive change. Ending and transforming antiquated sexist conventions of the past with information and ideas that inspire and motivate all males to act and to re-learn some basic facts concerning humanity and sex.
Feminine and women’s rights are being muffled out by the burgeoning sexual exploitation industry to the point where women are being denied access to their own sexuality. It is almost as if the sex industry has reared its ugly head and said to all women ‘No, you cannot have your identity back.’ Sexual exploitation is not only a crime in our nation it is a serious violation of basic decency and a basic law fundamental in global human rights. As we have arrived at a new dawn of global change. Progressives, Democrats, humanists, women’s rights and LGBTQ, Trans and Gender equality movements nationwide alike are already lining up for what is being termed as to be the battle of the millennium.
These social changes promise to be the watershed event of the millennium for all Women, females, genders, trans people, people of color, mothers, people with disabilities and families. Together with members of historically marginalized groups such as Black and Latino, along with women’s organizations and federally mandated groups such as LGBTQ organizations will all soon feel the full effect and protections of the United States Constitution as whites have historically laid claim to. Global poverty will be on its way out and if the change accidentally touches your life, well sorry about that but those who have lived and continue to live in poverty along with historically maligned communities are demanding, and taking their rights,
In closing, personally I do not see how an attempted rapist gets to progress any further here unless we go back 50 years apparently when AmeriKKKa was a better place in time when slavery and enslavements were still legal, and where ‘good ole boys’ could actually do round ups, female slaves were all impregnated and no white male was ever accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl. Come on men.
As Senator Mazie Hirono recently said. WAKE UP! STEP UP! DEMAND JUSTICE!
