MoveOn.org Vows to Withhold Dem Donations Because Schumer Acting Too Joe Lieberman
by Bridget Johnson
August 7, 2015 - 1:39 am

In protest of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) acting too “Joe Lieberman” by deciding to vote against the Iran deal, MoveOn.org says it’s mobilizing a donor boycott of the Democratic Party.

“Diplomacy has yielded an agreement between the world’s major powers and Iran that will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The only other means of limiting Iran’s nuclear program is war,” MoveOn.org political action executive director Ilya Sheyman said in a statement. “While not unexpected, it is outrageous and unacceptable that the Democrat who wants to be the party’s leader in the Senate is siding with the Republican partisans and neoconservative ideologues who are trying to scrap this agreement and put us on the path to war.”

“…Our country doesn’t need another Joe Lieberman in the Senate, and it certainly doesn’t need him as Democratic leader. The vast majority of Democratic voters — the people who elected President Obama in part because of our shared belief that war must always be a last resort — will not stand for it…. No real Democratic leader does this. If this is what counts as ‘leadership’ among Democrats in the Senate, Senate Democrats should be prepared to find a new leader or few followers. This is not what the volunteers, activists, small-dollar donors, and voters who actually win elections spend their time and money to support.”

MoveOn.org claims eight million members and says it’s trying to get commitments to withhold $10 million from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee “and from any Democratic candidate who succeeds in undermining the president’s diplomacy with Iran” in the next 72 hours.

Other liberals on Twitter suggested calling Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) office and encouraging her to mount a rebellion against Schumer’s presumed takeover of Senate Democratic leader when Harry Reid (D-Nev.) retires next year.

Schumer’s account was also swamped with comments accusing him of allegiance to Israel over America and calling him an “AIPAC whore.”

Liberal activists began the petition effort to keep Schumer from the majority leader post after he endorsed the Corker-Cardin Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, but there’s no indication that effort gained any traction among Schumer’s peers.

“Schumer’s decision to join Republicans in attempting to sabotage the Iran nuclear deal once again shows that he is unfit to lead senate Democrats,” said political director Becky Bond of CREDO Action, which organized the petition and runs the site StopWarWithIran.com. “Perhaps it is time to change his nickname from Wall Street Chuck to Warmonger Chuck.”

The Democratic Party really need to cleanse themselves of anti-Semitic scumbags like these MoveOn freaks.

@oralloy,
Telling is how little the political hacks at moveon.org value the mind of Schumer, they dont seem to place any value on his reasoning. He he is a leader of the D party. If they place so little confidence in the D leadership then why would I do it?

the reality is that they dont care about right or wrong, good or bad, they only care about their team winning, and they have no scruples. They are a part of the problem, and cant be part of the solution, because they dont have the capacity to be.

Thus I dont care what Moveon.org thinks. Nor should anyone else.

Listen at the 16:45 mark Hitchens judge the people of moveon.org to be "stupid" and then "stupid again".

Where were all you anti nuclear weapon freeks when Israel built 75 to 400 of them. I notice that the politicians who oppose the treaty are more interested in protecting Israel than our sons and daughters who will die in an Iran war.

We will not go to war with Iran almost no matter what anyone else does. We dont even keep one carrier group full time in the Persian Gulf anymore, Wake up, we are leaving the region and almost nothing can change that.

Failure carries consequences, and we have colossally failed in the Middle East

Actually there is an anti-Semitic cancer growing in the heart of the Democratic Party.

These MoveOn kooks represent the Neo-Nazi wing of the Democratic Party. They dislike Mr. Schumer because he is not an anti-Semitic scumbag.

I happen to dislike Mr. Schumer's position on guns, but kudos to him for standing up to the anti-Semitic vermin that infest his party.

That is incorrect. If this treaty with Iran fails, we (the US) will bomb Iran's illegal nuclear program.

Or maybe "treaty" is the wrong word for it. Well, whatever it's called.

I don't perceive any failure.

You might be closer to the truth than you know. The invasion of Iraq was brought about by the Neocons coupled with Dick Cheney's need to profiteer and control the Iraqi oil contracts in that country. The Neocons plans were to clean up the middle east so Israel could feel safe, in other words, what was not spelled out at the time, was the reality the US would also go after Iran; the US-led coalition got caught in a quagmire in Iraq, losing over 4,500 US military troops.

If this deal with Iran fails to go through, war will be the eventual outcome because there will be no restraints preventing Iran from going ahead reaching its nuclear goal deep underground, in caves which cannot be reached by traditional bombs.

I, along with a vast number of Americans are for the Iranian nuclear deal, along with our European allies. Most people believe diplomacy and a gradual lifting of sanctions on Iran is the way to go. The US must do what is best in the interest of the US and the European countries are doing what's in their interest...the US and its allies are in unison; we live in a global world and are all effected when the middle east is upside-down. If the US is strong in his defense then it will be in a stronger position to defend Israel and its other allies. Israel, in my opinion, need no help because it has a nuclear facility with many warheads. It would be wrong for the Zionist nation to take on a country the size of Iran, the world's 17th most populous nation with 78.4 million inhabitants; the loss of Israeli life would be too high a price.

The other thing is this: If Schumer were to actually lobby against Obama and there are not enough votes to help Obama, then it would appear Bibi Netanyahu has more power over the US congress than the current president of the US.

This is indeed frightening.

Iran seems unable to understand how to build a proper bunker. Based on their history, I doubt they will manage to build a bomb-proof bunker in the future.

Without nuclear weapons, the only way Iran can harm Israel would be by ordering Hizballah to fire rockets into Israel from Lebanon.

I'm not sure if Lebanon has yet recovered from their last war of aggression against Israel, but if they start another, I'm sure that Israel will be able to pulverize whatever is left of Lebanon.

Doesn't frighten me. Israel are the good guys. We should be proud to be on the same side as them.

Israel is run by a bunch of political pricks who are only interested in stealing palistianian land for the european settlers by murdering all the palistianians until there are no longer any to claim the property upon which they have lived for more than 2000 years. And you are a lying pile of shyt.

MoveOn really does not have a good reputation, I am not but sure this hurts more than helps. I bet anything Obama wishes they would stay out of it.
