“After 240 years, we will 19 finally enshrine the rights of women in the Constitution by passing the Equal Rights Amendment. And we will urge U.S. ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women,” the platform reads.
Every American, no matter their race, sex, ethnicity or national origin, language, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or disability, is equal, and Democrats are fighting for them. Democrats have a long and proud history of defending civil rights and expanding opportunity for all Americans. From the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009 to including marriage equality in the party platform in 2012, Democrats have fought to end discrimination in all forms. If the Trump Administration threatens a group of Americans simply because of who they are or what they believe, Democrats will fight for our core values of equality for everyone.
Speaking at the LGBT for Hillary Gala in New York City on Sept. 9, 2016, Clinton said that Trump’s supporters were "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic." Trump said the remarks showed "her true contempt for everyday Americans."
A group of 14 Marxist/Progressive Democrat) senators has written a letter to President Obama urging him to “dramatically increase” the number of Syrian refugees being resettled into American cities and towns.
They say the U.S. needs to take in at least 65,000 Syrians as permanent refugees over the next year-and-a-half.
“While the United States is the largest donor of humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees, we must also dramatically increase the number of Syrian refugees that we accept for resettlement,” says the four-page letter to Obama, copied to Secretary of State John Kerry and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.
Liberalism is generally hostile to Christianity and it particularly seems to dislike anyone who has strong religious convictions that conflict with liberalism. This describes every devout Muslim on the planet.
Liberals go on and on endlessly about a war on women and Islam treats women like garbage. In many parts of the Islamic world, women are forced to wear burkas or veils, are given clitoridectomies to take the pleasure out of sex for them, can’t leave the house or drive without a male relative and may be raped or beaten with impunity.
The Left has gone so insane over imaginary violations of “gay rights” that liberals are in favor of driving Christians out of any profession that caters to weddings and they insist that women have to use the bathroom with men because the less than .2% of men who “feel like” women would be uncomfortable using the men’s bathroom. Meanwhile, Islam goes with homophobia the way peanut butter goes with jelly. There are a number of Islamic countries where being gay is a crime with jail or even DEATH as the penalty.
In 2011, the Pew Research Center reported that 70 percent of Muslims in the U.S. described themselves as Democrats or agreeing with Democratic policies. Only 11 percent said they were Republicans or supported Republican policies. Experts believe the numbers have not changed since the study was completed.
But the 2011 Pew survey found that Muslim-Americans 68 percent of Muslim-Americans wanted a larger government providing more services than a smaller government providing fewer services.
The goal of Marxism is for the working class as a whole to smash the infrastructure of the "bourgueois State" and create a "dictatorship of the proletariat". In Marxist terms, the so-called "dictatorship of the proletariat" simply means that the working class is imposing it's will upon their former dictators, this word doesn't necessarily refer to a political dictatorship or authoritarian State as we understand it today. What this "dictatorship of the proletariat" does is that it dismantles the old institutions of the State (the standing army, the police, etc) while seizing the social means of production and turning them into common property for the working class as a whole, re-organizing the economy around a democratic "common plan" and substituting money for a "labor note" system to organize the distribution of resources in this new society.
The primary goal of Islam, according to its doctrine, is to bring the law of Allah (known as Sharia) to all people on earth. Sharia is the right way to live, and all people should be subject to it. Other religions also feel that they have the answer for everyone. What makes Islam different is the means their doctrine allows them to use.
Islam developed a religious doctrine quite different from other religions we are familiar with. Islamic doctrines unapologetically advocate the use of force, warfare, deceit, fear, torture, and slaughter to bring the law of Allah to the world.
Both the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and Islam have as their ultimate goal, world domination. If the United States and Western Europe continue down their present path, Islam and the Marxist/Progressive will have a tumultuous clash. Currently, one aids the other. They both demand and require total conformity to their beliefs. Tolerance for dissenting views is not tolerated by either. Yet, these two destructive forces cannot ultimately rule together. The Muslims abhor everything the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) advocate.
