Dividing Democrats? [View all]

Too many times are there threads here on DU that divide us from each other.

Basically it seems there are those who have decided that being in lockstep with whoever is in office and has a D after their name, is beyond reproach and any criticism thereof is akin to wanting to destroy the party.

I'm sorry, but that is a crock. If we feel the need to criticize the president, cabinet members or congress critters then it should be heard; not censured. Discussion should ensue if one feels that the criticism is undue; letting the arguments win or lose on their own accords.

But, like I say, what I have been seeing is that some are working to divide real progressives from the party, leaving only a conservative and pro-elite, pro-those-in-power core to make all the rules and issue edicts.

From what I have been reading the criticisms of the establishment are a sign of progress and hopefulness for a better future. A future that otherwise looks pretty damn bleak the way the country is headed.
