❝ The Democratic National Committee passed a resolution Friday afternoon that activists say effectively reverses a ban on fossil fuel company donations.
The resolution introduced by DNC Chair Tom Perez states that the party “support[s] fossil fuel workers” and will accept donations from “employers’ political action committees.” It was approved by a 30-2 vote just two months after the committee adopted another resolution prohibiting donations from fossil fuel companies by a unanimous vote.
❝ The new resolution nods to “forward-looking employers” that are “powering America’s all-of-the-above energy economy and moving us towards a future fueled by clean and low-emissions energy technology, from renewables to carbon capture and storage to advanced nuclear technology.”
What a crock! Same as it ever was still means — same as it ever was. What needs to be different this time is that clean environment voters have two tasks ahead – not just a single action that makes you feel good and accomplishes nothing but continued control for creeps like the Fake President.
One. We have to get control of Congress away from corporate pimps. Two. With Democrats and Independents in the majority – including the whole range from center to left – we fight for progressive programs – continuing the fight to replace the copout brigade. But, please, don’t be foolish enough to think we can skip stages and run the risk of even two more years of criminal incompetence and corruption.
