Democrats Launch War Against Middle Class and Dwight Bullard; Contender to be the party’s first Black Chair
Democrats are usually touted for being the party that houses the best ideas and platforms for Black and middle income people.
But, Dwight Bullard’s experience climbing the party ladder is showing us reality is different.
Truth and demographics show, the Democratic Party is still a political party run by wealthy, white people.
Florida Progressives are hoping to change that. But it appears there are secret deals being cut to keep Dwight Bullard and the middle class out of power.
Florida could have the first African American man as Chair of The Florida Democratic Party very soon.
Except a huge barrier was just created.
A major funding source for FDP, Steven Bittel, is gearing up to run for the same seat.
It appears Bittel made a chess move last week during a Miami-Dade, Democratic party election by using another member of the party.
A long time Democrat and active member of the Democratic party, Bret Berlin, ran for Statewide Committeeman. He won that position. He told members via social media, he was excited about being elected and looking forward to holding the seat. However, it appears that was simply a sly move to make sure Dwight Bullard doesn’t get elected as Chair of the Florida Democratic Party.
Right after winning the Statewide Committeeman seat, Berlin allowed a host of new members to join.
Berlin then resigned the position he recently won in only a matter of days to make it possible for Bittel to run for his seat and subsequently for FDP Chair.
Those members could very well be joining to vote for Bittel as Florida Chair. Having a large number of people to join could upset and offset the Bullard voters currently in the chapter.
When Berlin was confronted on social media about not being transparent and honest with voters he posted and reposted the same statement over and over again which took little effort and appeared to show no true concern about his recent moves to trade power.
Both have different views on how to lead the party. Bullard, a Progressive Democrat and Bittel, a traditional Democrat.
The former Chair of the Florida Democratic Party was Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Schultz recently resigned after emails were leaked about the party’s involvement in helping Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the primary election.
Former Senator Dwight Bullard is currently the outgoing chairman in the county for the party. The Bittel-Berlin apprears to be leading to a face-off between Bullard and Bittel.
Bullard made his actions clear on Monday. In an email, Bullard wrote, “To whom it may concern, Let this email serve as notice that I will be seeking the office of State Committeeman for the Miami-Dade County DEC.”
The recent moves by the establishment seem to be yet another slap the white and elite members of the establishment landed on Progressives.
Progressives see a need to move the party in a direction that can directly compete with the far right-winged agenda Trump defined on the campaign trail.
Traditional Democrats completely missed the boat on how to run a campaign against a candidate like Donald Trump and the Republican Party ultimately losing the Presidential election, control of Congress and eliminating chances to get a liberal on the Supreme Court.
Experience is key in all of this and Bullard has it. Bittel lacks it. But with loopholes, new and mysterious members and the recent resignation of Berlin, Bittel can run for State Committeeman, remain in that position for hours, maybe several days and then become Chair.
Bullard rose through the ranks and took on each position with honesty and good-will for the party. Bittel appears to be quickly running through the ranks in order to gain access to one of the most powerful positions the party has to offer.
