Lafayette City Councilwoman Merrily Mazza is shedding tears because she doesn’t believe Democrats support her agenda to
destroy Colorado’s economy kill the oil and gas industry and Mazza is taking no prisoners. In an op-ed in the Daily Camera, she debunked the left’s suggestions on how to get involved in stopping fracking. We assume this came from some kind of email blast.
Here is her summation of the issue:
“The Democratic Party is incapable, nationally and locally, of being a people’s party. The coming fracking fight will bear that out if the financial meltdown didn’t already. Time for the people to take charge.”
Wow. Well, this is a first. We actually agree with Mazza on something – the Democratic Party is incapable, nationally and locally, of being a people’s party. That is 100% true. That was entirely evident by Hillary Clinton’s massive loss in 2016. She also dinged Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and Rep. Jared Polis for being corporate sell-outs. Well, who are we to disagree. Although, it’s worth noting that Polis likely didn’t sell out to corporate interests. He likely sold out to help further his own career. Let’s just be clear here.
Either way, while Mazza may not represent a mainstream Democrat, Democrats are suffering from a lack of purpose and platform, which allows them to be easily bought by special interests. But, then again, this is nothing new. It’s just additional evidence of the fissure between fractivists and mainstream Democrats. Boo Hoo!
