“It’s almost like the Democrats want to entirely destroy their party,” observed Democratic New York assemblyman Dov Hikind in a recent interview with the Washington Free Beacon. “When someone like Ellison can be a leading candidate to be the head of a major party, we’re in a lot of trouble.”
Calling Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) divisive, radical, and anti-Israel, the prominent NYC Jewish lawmaker launched a petition demanding that Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) withdraw his support for Ellison assuming control of the Democratic National Committee.
Hikind expressed confusion at the DNC’s front-runner in the race for a new leader, stating, “If you have this guy who is the leading candidate … you are lying to the people. You are lying to the Democrats. Stop lying to me!”
