vincent-tolliverVincent Tolliver (pictured) has decided to sue the Democrat’s National Committee for breaching his due process rights and his right to free political expression. Tolliver was among the candidates for the new DNC Chair, but was expelled for pointing out that another candidate – Muslim Democrat Keith Ellison of Minnesota – might not be the best chairman because of Islam’s intolerant views on homosexuality. 

Tolliver stated “His being a Muslim is precisely why DNC voters should not vote for him. Muslims discriminate against gays. Islamic law is clear on the subject, and being gay is a direct violation of it. In some Muslim countries, being gay is a crime punishable by death.” 

“Clearly,” he continued, “Mr. Ellison is not the person to lead the DNC or any other organization committed to not discriminating based on gender identity or sexual orientation. I’m shocked [the Human Rights Campaign] has been silent on the issue. A vote for Representative Ellison by any member of the DNC would be divisive and unconscionable.”

Tolliver was consequently expelled from the race by interim chair Donna Brazile, who described his comments as “disgusting.” (Note from Balladeer: But of course Muslim homophobia and general intolerance are NEVER to be criticized according to the Democrats.)

Tolliver has now pledged to take legal action against the DNC. 

“ The Democratic establishment are denying me due process and are attempting to suppress my voice …” Tolliver elaborated, adding that he stands by his views on Islam.

“The DNC and the Democratic establishment are attempting to prevent me from freely expressing known and indisputable tenets of lslamic law. Moreover, through sleight of hand tactics, interim chair Donna Brazile falsely accused me of discriminating against Mr. Ellison and cast aspersions by suggesting I was intolerant of religious freedom,” he alleged. 

“Furthermore, the DNC’s blocking my candidacy is a glaring contradiction to the 2016 Democratic Platform, that ‘as Democrats, we respect differences of perspective and belief, and pledge to work together to move this country forward, even when we disagree.’ I am a lifelong Democratic who believes in people and not power and elitism which has successfully corrupted the DNC and the Democratic Party.” 

Balladeer: It should be noted that the reason the Democrats are in need of a new DNC Chair in the first place is because of the departure of the disgraced Debra Wasserman-Schultz, a prominent figure in the DNC scandal regarding sabotage of Bernie Sanders’ candidacy for the party’s presidential nomination last year.

As I’ve stated before here at Balladeer’s Blog there are people dear to me who are female and there are people dear to me who are gay and I have seen how they will be treated in a world too cowardly to allow any criticism of Islam’s intolerance.

  1. Good for this man for not just taking this horrible treatment from the Democrats.

  2. Whomever said that Democrats weren’t racist, homophobic, classist, and every other “ist,” is insane. However…for those gays (and especially gays of color) who think that ANY party is free of that, well…you’re crazy. It helps to keep a logical, cool head upon your shoulders when it comes to politics and think that ALL politicians are lying, racist, thieving scum. You’ll stay much saner!

    • Hello again! Sorry for the delay in replying. Things have been crazy. I certainly agree with you. All politicians are garbage and should be eyed with maximum suspicion.

    This is cool! Democrats forgive Islam’s homophobia, too!

    Democrat hypocrisy on Islam’s homophobia and misogyny has made me disgusted with the party. I’m joining #WALKAWAY
