The College Democrats of America (CDA) have started their own internal ethnic war. Totem-Pole victim-class factions are carpet-bombing each other’s leadership with accusations of bigotry over…past tweets. It’s gotten so bad the DNC is ready to break ties with the national organization.
The group’s leaders are publicly firing off accusations of anti-Blackness, Islamaphobia and anti-Semitism at each other. Impeachment proceedings are now in the works against the organization’s new vice president, Nourhan Mesbah, who is Muslim. College Democrats say that screenshots of tweets that their peers sent in adolescence spread rapidly through group texts, which already caused a student running for president of the group to withdraw their candidacy in September. And national advocacy groups for Muslim and Jewish Americans are now weighing in with criticism.
The conflict has gotten so messy that the Democratic National Committee is considering disaffiliating with the national collegiate organization altogether and creating a partnership with the state groups underneath the national umbrella, according to a Democrat familiar with the discussions. The DNC declined to comment.
It’s a #Woke Civil War among College Marxists, and that’s certainly popcorn-worthy, but check out the Mea Culpa.
“I apologize for my words in 2016. My comment was in no way rooted in malice or anti-semitism, especially as a 13-year old, relatively new immigrant from North Africa, with a different regional dialectic linguist comprehension.” BUT “while I take responsibility for my actions, I am hurt by the Islamophobia and xenophobia that continues to unfold.”
In other words, I am not responsible for things I said years ago that may sound inappropriate given my current association with a political party that thrives on ending careers over past tweets.
But wait, there’s more!
We’ve got national organizations other than the DNC squabbling. CAIR wants the “rampant anti-Muslim bigotry” in the CDA investigated. They’re upset because the party narrative on old bigotry is being applied to a Muslim. That’s rich coming from them. They’re as bad as the rest of them.
We’ve also got College Democrat Jews wailing about anti-Semitism, so everyone’s a bigot, and someone is about to learn an important lesson. This is good. College is supposed to be about learning.
Nothing matters if you are not advancing party power.
If your bickering is deemed a detriment compared to someone else’s bickering, you’ll get the ax, or you all may have to go.
In the end, only party power matters.
