The Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) is the more centrist wing of the Democratic party. (Yes there are a few.) They are locked in a life and death struggle with the radical left-wing who has co-opted control of the party.
In an open letter to Democrats last week, the DLC attacked the party’s left wingers who they (accuratly) feel have cost them recent elections. In the middle of the letter came a wonderfully ambiguous quote…
We urge you to make clear to the American people that winning the war on jihadist extremism will be the Democratic Party’s first priority this year and every year until the danger recedes.
I agree.. If the Democrats can win the war against ‘jihadist extremism” in their party, they might just win a few elections. Though I don’t think that is how they meant it….
