The leader of North Carolina’s progressive Democrat caucus said that the Jewish Caucus affiliating with the party would “end” it.
Ryan Jenkins, president of the Tar Heel State’s progressive caucus, attacked the North Carolina Democratic Jewish Caucus (NCDJC) after the group was denied affiliation with the state’s Democratic Party.
Last week, the NCDJC was denied affiliation with the North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP) in a vote of 17 no votes, 16 yes votes and 17 abstentions, according to local news reports.
“They have done nothing but whine and play the victim and attack people, and we are sick of it,” Jenkins said on Friday, public radio WFAE reported.
“Every single abstention was a no vote that didn’t want to get targeted,” he continued.
Jenkins said the members of the NCDJC are “attacking every single person who either didn’t attend… or they are threatening the people who voted to abstain.”
“I have seen people who have been working for 30 years who run major districts (in the party) in tears over this,” Jenkins continued.
